At The BrickKicker, we put our clients’ needs first, always. Buyers need a fair, unbiased and thorough evaluation of a home before making what may be the biggest financial decision of their lives. We will never minimize the severity of an issue but we keep our findings in perspective. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned investor your inspection will be a stress-free experience that delivers thorough results and the information you need to move forward with confidence.

At The BrickKicker we take pride in the quality and accuracy of our reporting. Our reports are viewed at the end of the inspection and delivered with quality photos within 24 hours. We report all deficiencies in a manner that is clear, accurate and useful in negotiating repairs. We avoid excessively technical language, ambiguous descriptions and excessively long reports that overwhelm our clients.

We are committed to personal and professional development; we understand our role as an advocate for the client and we understand we can only do this by being the best option for our clients in an unregulated industry.

Our culture of continuous education and shared knowledge makes any of our inspectors the best choice for your home inspection needs. We hold ourselves to the highest standards available to our industry.

An asbestos inspection is when a BrickKicker inspector comes to inspect a building or facility for the presence or location of asbestos material. Asbestos material is defined as material that contains greater than 1% asbestos. An asbestos inspection also includes re-examining a building or facility to identify the presence or location of additional asbestos, these inspections help protect you from from deadly diseases like mesothelioma.

If you are a homeowner and you believe you have a mold problem, you have come to the right place. Order a Mold Investigation and The BrickKicker will review your property for conditions that are conducive to microbial growth. We start at the roof and work our way down to the foundation, looking for visible mold and conditions that can lead to microbial growth in concealed spaces. We have helped many clients who believed their homes were making them sick by identifying sources of moisture and areas of concern that require remediation. Occasionally we may also recommend laboratory testing. We only recommend sampling in the context of a thorough assessment when it can be used to test a hypothesis.

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. The Surgeon General has warned the radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, killing 21,000 people per year in the United States. You cannot see, smell or taste radon. When you breathe are containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. Testing is the only way to find out your home’s radon levels. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes for radon. If you find that there are high levels, the home can be fixed. Even very high levels of radon can be reduced to acceptable levels.

We use Sun Nuclear continuous radon monitors. These devices are very expensive but will show the radon measurement over time, note any unusual or abnormal reading in the test, detect tampering with the device and produce reliable results that you can be confident with. You will get a detailed report on the day the test is completed. We do not need a 3rd party laboratory to interpret our results.
