A thorough home inspection performed by a professional home inspector is designed to provide you with vital information to help you make an informed decision about your potential purchase.  A home inspection is a visual inspection of the exterior, structure, roof, garage, attic, basement/crawlspace, plumbing, electric. heating & A/C and interior rooms of a home.  It will include an evaluation of the installed & readily accessible components of the home.  You will be able to walk away from the property inspection knowing, in a clear way, what the immediate and major issues are (if any), and what items will need repair and/or maintenance in the near term.

Durango Inspection LLC also offers Radon testing with a NRPP certified continuous radon monitor. Testing your home for Radon is very important step for buying a home here in La Plata County. SW Colorado is known for having high radon levels. Many of the houses I test end up having a radon level of over 20 p/Ci/L. Studies have shown that a level of 10 p/Ci/L equals the amount of carcinogen exposure equal to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.
