We offer following specialized inspection services:

  • Retaining walls
  • Decks, Terraces
  • Trees, Scrubs
  • Surface drainage

Pro Gauge Home Inspections’ home inspectors typically inspect newly built or previously owned homes, condominiums, town homes, and other dwellings. Prospective home buyers often hire home inspectors to check and report on a home’s structure and overall condition. Sometimes, homeowners hire a home inspector to evaluate their home’s condition before placing it on the market.

In addition to examining structural quality, home inspectors examine all home systems and features, including roofing, exterior walls, attached garage or carport, foundation, interior, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. They look for and report violations of building codes, but home inspectors do not have the power to enforce compliance with the codes.

What To Expect From Your Pro Gauge Home Inspections Service:

The amount of time needed on-site for Pro Gauge Home Inspections to inspect a multi-family home depends on the number of units. Feel free to contact us to find out how much time we expect we’ll need to evaluate and document your new home. Our report preparation requires additional office time following the on-site inspection.

Our Additional Pro Gauge Home Inspection Options

Pro Gauge Home Inspections knows that our customers should have every bit of information necessary to make an informed decision. Every home is unique and so is every customer. We offer many additional services (including some that most competitors don’t offer) to bring peace of mind when it comes to the home you’re considering. To ensure that you are fully aware of your current or prospective property’s condition, we provide the following additional Pro Gauge Home Inspections services:


  • Certified Wood Destroying Pest Inspections: All of our Pro Gauge Home Inspection inspectors are licensed to perform WDI (Wood Destroying Insect) inspections. These typically include termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and powder post beetles.
  • Radon Testing: All of our Pro Gauge Home Inspection inspectors are state certified to test for radon gas. The EPA recommends all homes be tested for radon and then remediated if results are 4.0 PC/L or above.
  • Mold Inspections: When you order home inspection services from Pro Gauge Home Inspection, we offer a visual inspection of the property for mold and its ideal growing conditions. Moisture testing will be performed around all windows, doors, and toilets. Air testing will be performed on each level of the home along with a sample from outdoors to create a control. This comprehensive approach is designed to give you peace of mind.
  • Well and Septic Tank Inspections: Well and septic systems have unique components and are not covered by most home inspections. We offer these inspections and highly recommend they be included if the home you are buying has either. The septic system inspection includes a dye test.
  • Water Testing: Water testing is typically performed if the water is supplied by a well. While there are many types of tests, the most common are E-coli/Total Fecal, Lead, and Nitrates/Nitrites. If you are financing a home through HUD (VA and FHA), a water test may be required. If not, it is still highly recommended.
  • Well Chlorination: It is not uncommon for bacteria to be present in water samples from wells, especially if the home has been vacant. Typically the solution is to “chlorinate” the well. The process involves putting chlorine or bromine in the well and not using the water for 24 hours. This works 99% of the time, but some wells need treatment systems installed that treat the water on a constant basis.
  • Pools and Spa Inspections: Pro Gauge Home Inspection offers pool and spa inspections. The pool and/or spa must be “open” to inspect them. Follow along with the pool inspector and pick up some valuable some tips if this will be your first experience.
  • Irrigation System Inspections: Irrigation systems can make your yard look great if they are working properly. A sprinkler head that delivers water against the house or waters the road can be harmful and/or wasteful. Since systems must be winterized during cold months, this service is only available when the system is active.
  • Winterization and De-Winterization Services: Homes that are vacant during winter can have frozen pipes within 24 hours of a furnace failure. Pro Gauge Home Inspections winterization services remove the water from the pipes and protect the drain lines with anti-freeze. We guarantee your home from frozen and split pipes and the damage that can result. This guarantee is valid as long as we de-winterize.
  • Roofing Inspections: In addition to a standard inspection, a roof inspection can be performed to better discern if sections of a roof have been damaged by water, before the entire roof is compromised.
  • New Construction: Building a new home in New York City, New York, New Jersey or a surrounding community? Our three-phase new construction inspection can ensure that the home is being built safely and correctly.

At Pro Gauge Home Inspections, our licensed home inspectors are happy to assist you in every aspect of the Pro Gauge Home Inspections process — from the essential electrical and plumbing assessments to any extra services like radon testing and mold inspection.

We understand the importance of having all the necessary resources to make a confident decision. Contact us today at (877)292-1755 for more information about us, or read our customer reviews.
