Why Inspect?

Why should I get a home inspection?

You are about to make one of the single largest purchases of your life. Utahns may spend upwards of a quarter of their monthly pre-tax income (or more) on a mortgage. Purchasing a home inspection before making this enormous financial commitment will provide lasting benefits and make you a more informed buyer.

Our certified home inspectors will identify material defects in the home to ensure that you are fully informed about the condition of the home BEFORE you purchase it. 

Don’t let your home turn into a money pit!

What is infrared imaging?

Standard with every home inspection, Wasatch Crest home inspectors utilize infrared cameras to identify areas of potential water damage as well as issues with heating and cooling. Water leaks can often go undetected for months or even years before a catastrophic failure that can cause thousands of dollars in repairs which are almost universally NOT covered by homeowner’s insurance. Heating and cooling issues can add to monthly utility bills resulting in thousands of dollars in unnecessary heating and cooling costs.

Why should you get a meth test?

Methamphetamine use and manufacturing occurs in all neighborhoods from the very oldest and dilapidated to the newest and upscale, from rural to urban. Living in a home that has meth residue could cause you and your family to become sick. Testing for meth before you purchase a home gives you the peace of mind to know that your family won’t be inhaling byproducts of meth production or use for years to come.

Why should you test for radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the radioactive decay of elements that are found naturally in the ground. According to the EPA: “radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.” Fortunately, if your home has high radon levels, there are mitigation systems available that can reduce your risk.
