Description

Spy Inspection Services is a locally owned and operated full service residential and commercial inspection company serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware Lehigh, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Spy Inspection Services provides a full range of home inspection services associated with real estate transactions. Why call a different company for each individual test and inspection? With Spy Inspection Services, one call does it all! At Spy Inspections, we know that for most people, purchasing a home is the largest investment they will ever make. It is no wonder many home buyers call SPY Inspection Services’ professionals to inspect the structural and mechanical systems of the home and report to them on their condition. Sometimes sellers find it beneficial to have SPY Inspections evaluate their home prior to listing. This way, they will be alerted to problems that could arise later in the transaction, avoiding needless worry and stress. Inspections are an important part of the home buying process. Spy Inspection’s home inspectors are all ASHI certified and will take an objective, unemotional look at the home you are considering, and evaluate its condition so you can make an informed purchasing decision. An inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of a building. Spy Inspection’s professionals have performed thousands of home inspections and pride themselves on understanding and evaluating each home thoroughly and are ready to answer any questions you may have. Spy Inspections offers a visual wood destroying insect (WDI) inspection that can be performed with or without a general home inspection. A WDI inspection covers the visually accessible areas of a home and includes an inspection for termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and reinfesting wood boring beetle. The inspection will point out conditions that could lead to infestation or support-hidden infestation. These include firewood and other debris stored against the home, wood siding contact with the soil, and grade, which does not slope away from the foundation. All WDI inspections use the National Pest Management Association report format NPMA-33 that is recognized by most states and is the preferred report format for FHA, HUD and VA mortgages. Radon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless naturally occurring radioactive gas that seeps from soil into homes through cracks and other openings in the foundation or walls that come in contact with the soil. Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer next to smoking. Radon gas measurement is easy and should be considered by the buyer of any real estate transaction. Spy Inspections will conduct a short-term radon test using an E-perm system and provide you with an accurate reading of the radon level for the lowest level suitable for occupancy. A field supervisor looks at all visible parts and reports on whether the integral parts of the well are operating satisfactorily. In order to obtain the basic system condition, at the date of inspection, a 30-minute flow test is performed. Results will be either Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory. The report will contain the following information: Basic Information Obtained: Age of Well (if noted) Well Location Well Depth (if noted) Well Production (GPM) Age of Well Pump (if noted) Visual Inspection Of Well: Type of Pump Condition of Pump Type of Tank Condition of Tank If/When the system was serviced People are more aware of water quality, especially for consumption. For most real estate transactions water is tested for bacteria, nitrates, and occasionally lead. There are many contaminates that can be tested in your drinking water. Spy Inspections has contracted with labs all over the state to provide for any type of test that you may need. There is wide variability in how different people are affected by indoor mold. However, the long-term presence of indoor mold growth may eventually become unhealthy for anyone... and some molds are more hazardous than others. The following types of people may be affected more severely and sooner than others: – Infants and children – Elderly People – Individuals with respiratory conditions or sensitivities such as allergies and asthma – Persons having weakened immune systems (for example, people with HIV infection, chemotherapy patients, and organ transplant recipients) Those with special health concerns should consult a medical professional if they feel their health is affected by indoor mold. The first step is identifying if you have a mold problem. We can perform a mold survey and then take air and swab samples, which a local lab will analyze. These results are presented in a detailed report that will identify the type of mold, its toxicity, and quantity in the home. Spy Inspection Services provides a full range of home inspection services associated with real estate transactions....

They were higher priced than other home inspection companies so I thought maybe they’d be higher quality. Nope. They missed a massive hole in the side of my house resulting in $4k worth of work out of pocket. They also were extremely rude when confronted about it.

I called SPY INSPECTIONS to evaluate some older leaks to see if there if any potential mold has accumulated over time. Rick stopped by and did a visual evaluation of the area. In addition to that, he also provided valuable feedback as to how the mold accumulates and what to look for etc. There was no need to perform any testing as there were no real signs of mold accumulation. In the end, Rick dec...

The company was able to schedule an inspection quickly, and the inspector was on time. That was the good part. I was unable to accompany the inspector as I was preoccupied elsewhere in the house. I was surprised at the shortness of the inspection. (maybe two hours) The inspector kept repeating that he could not inspect this and that because the owner's personal items where in the way. I don't thin...

Our inspector was Paul--he was extremely thorough, answered all our questions, and turned around the inspection report on a timely basis. Rick completed our mold evaluation--he made sure we were informed of his findings and his recommendations on next steps. Couldn't recommend SPY inspections more!

It went well. We were under a very tight time line to produce a stucco report for our home inspection and the remainder of the week's weather forecast was calling for inclement weather so I called to try to move our appointment to an earlier day. Even though they were fully booked, they went out of their way to accommodate my schedule and performed the required test and produced a written report p...
