Other Services We Specialize In

Pest inspections are conducted by our licensed professionals to perform inspections of building structures to determine damage or possibility of damage from insects, bugs, termites or dry rot conditions. The BrickKicker inspector is looking for wood invaders such as termites, beetles, and insects such as cockroaches or carpenter ants, among other pests.

Radon is a naturally occurring gas caused by the decomposition of uranium. This is found in our soil throughout the world. The challenge is, when a home is built over any level of radon the gas could enter the home. Scientist have proven that Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer but can easily be repaired. It is only through testing for radon gas can you determine a repair is needed.

While a traditional home inspection is designed to look at the elements of an existing home a new construction inspection can go one step further. The BrickKicker inspector is trained to also look at the quality of the construction and help you prepare the Contractor’s Punch-list. This is a list of items found in new construction which are either incomplete, missing or completed in a less than qualify manner.

You do not have to live in a rural community or have a private well to be concerned about water quality. Older pipes could be dirty or clogged, newer pipes could be constructed out of materials which are known to have issues. The BrickKicker is aware of these concerns and can either provide testing for you or help you arrange to have your water tested.
