Here at Halligan Home Inspections we have been closely monitoring the latest updates from health, local and federal officials concerning the COVID-19 outbreak. From the outset we have implemented the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations and continue to follow the local official mandates issued. Yes, we are still performing home inspections and in an effort to help slow the spread of this virus we ask that you as a client do not attend the inspection. Reports are completed the day of the inspection and calls are welcome to go over and review the completed report. Thank you for your help in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Be Safe.

The Right Inspector, Right Away!®
Certified Professional Inspector
As a Certified Professional Inspector my standard home inspection is an evaluation of the visible interior and exterior structure, system and components. Your report will include my findings of any visible defects I discover in an easy-to-read format. I also provide my recommendations for monitoring, repair or replacement. My job isn’t finished until I have answered any of your concerns and you understand everything in the report.
Halligan Home Inspections provides Radon Testing as an additional service for your convenience. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. and result in a high indoor radon levels. You and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time. Be sure to add Radon Testing to your Home Inspection.

My home inspection uses state-of-the-art software and your inspection reports are delivered to you the same day as the inspection. The reports are shareable with anyone over the internet and you can create repair or request list to send to the seller or their realtor, sign your agreement and even make secure online payment using our HomeGauge Software.
Your report will contain photo’s and descriptions of the property condition and describes for you all defects found in a clear easy to understand format.

It is always encouraged that you attend the home inspection. If you are unable to attend the whole inspection at least try to make it at the end for any details that may prove helpful with your new ownership.
For those who do attend a copy of InterNACHI’s “Now That You Have Had A Home Inspection” is included. This book Authored by Nick Gromicko (InterNACHI’s founder) is full of useful information on learning how your home works, keeping it maintained and how to save energy.
