The Nuts and Bolts of a Complete Home Inspection, this is a thorough Evaluation of the Home. Includes Thermal Imaging, Air Quality testing and Safety Audit.
A Home is more than just a Roof over your head. A Home is a complex “System” of interdependent units that work in Harmony to keep you Warm, Safe and Dry in an Efficient Manner. A properly Designed, Built and Maintained Home will do just that. Unfortunately, Designs can be flawed; Builder Skills vary; and many Homes are simply not properly maintained. It is critical to have a Keen Eye to help Identify how the “System” functions as a whole, and the possible ramifications associated with a failure. For example, something as simple as a Leaky Gutter can lead to Roof Damage and Foundation Failure. Knowing what to Look for is Paramount.

We are Trained to Inspect the Home as a “System.” An Experienced, Knowledgeable Inspector will Ensure your New Home is Safe and Sound – We Guarantee it.

Radon gas is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that may be harmful to humans. The amount of radon in the air is measured in picocuries of radon gas per liter of air, or “pCi/L.” While any radon exposure creates some risk to health, the EPA considers a level of 4 pCi/L or higher dangerous and recommends that you take remedial measures to reduce or eliminate radon.
The good news is that radon remediation is usually a simple, low-cost procedure that is highly effective at reducing radon to a safe level within your home. The first step, however, is to identify if the home has elevated levels of radon. If you do not test, you will never know! Sugarhouse Inspections utilizes calibrated detection units to perform a reliable 48-hour exploratory test to identify if your new home has elevated radon levels.

Utah is a great state to take advantage of the clean and renewable energy of the sun. As a result, Photovoltaic Systems are becoming more commonplace in Utah, as homeowners take advantage of the many sun hours available in our state. A PV system can increase the value of your home, lower your power bill, and help keep our precious air clean!
A properly installed PV system requires monitoring and occasional maintenance in order to perform optimally. Sugarhouse Inspections is knowledgeable of Solar technology, proper install practices and how to keep your system running smoothly. If your new or existing home has a PV system installed, we can help evaluate your system and identify any issues that may affect maximum production.
It is important to note, that we are NOT solar installers, we are simply passionate about, and knowledgeable of the technology. We have inspected homes that have panels installed on the North side of the home. The sun does NOT shine on the North side of your home. An install company that recommends such a system configuration should probably be reconsidered. This is where homeowners can benefit from an unbiased, 3rd party evaluation of your home. Sugarhouse Inspections is happy to help you make the right decision, with respect to commiting to a PV system for your home. We have developed a proprietory, solar optimization program that can help you decide if an install is right for your home.

Just because it looks safe….
Mold spores are everywhere. But, certain types of mold in a home can have adverse health effects. Sustained moisture levels and other conditions can lead to the presence of mold. The only way to detect if harmful mold is present is to test for it. Sugarhouse Inspections provides testing services to help identify harmful mold conditions within your home.
