Brad showed up on time, and was very patient with this first time home buyer. He took the time to explain what he was doing, the things he was looking at/for, and why they were important. The report he generated did a nice job of breaking down the severity of his findings, and even indicated whether repairs were a DIY, or of they required expertise. He is personable, respectful, and most of all, a professional. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an inspection.

Buying a home is really overwhelming and scary at the same time. I must say I was really out of my element. I research everything before I do anything. But before Brad did his home inspection. he was so great and he talked me through it and told to me about what he would be doing and what he would be looking for.

What to look for in Buffalo Radon Testing

Radon is a radioactive gas that is a byproduct of uranium decay in the soil.  Many are aware that high levels of radon can cause lung cancer, and that your family’s health may be at risk if their exposure to radon is not understood.  The risk of radon exposure is not a myth, and approved testing methods must be followed in order to ensure accurate measurements. Radon testing is available as an add-on to a home inspection or as a standalone inspection service. Learn more about our Buffalo radon testing services.

  • Professional continuous radon monitors should be used, and calibrated annually to ensure that results are accurate
  • Results should be provided on the day the test completes, instead of days later, in order to allow your real estate purchase to move forward quickly.
  • EPA radon testing protocols should be followed, to ensure valid results are obtained
  • Care should be taken to ensure "closed-house" conditions are met, in order to prevent results from being artificially low due to windows and doors being left open
