Additional Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

before selling a home, a pre-listing inspection can prove invaluable for preparing the home for sale by making sure there are no surprises. I will conduct a full inspection and prepare a checklist and report to prepare your property for market.

New Construction Inspection

New doesn’t equal perfect! Before conducting a final walkthrough of a new home build, it is important to identify any issues before closing. We thoroughly inspect the home for defects or oversights so that the builder can make changes before moving in and having to repair them later.


Once an inspection is completed, buyers and sellers will agree upon the repairs that need to be made to the home before moving forward with closing their deal. After these repairs are made, a Re-Inspection can be scheduled to offer the seller additional peace of mind before their major purchase. We will revisit the home and check the quality and completeness of all new repairs discussed in previous inspections.

Radon Testing

Radon is naturally-occurring radioactive, odorless, tasteless gas that can be toxic to a building’s occupants at certain levels of exposure. I am certified as a Radon Technician in the state of New Jersey and can perform radon testing services to ensure that your home and family are safe.

Wood-Destroying Insects (WDI) Inspection

WDI are common pests, such as termites, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees, that can cause significant structural damage to a home if left unchecked and untreated. Let ROHI help you schedule and coordinate your WDI inspection with a licensed and qualified professional, to further protect your investment.
