New Construction Inspections

In a new home, the quality of construction is seldom what it used to be years ago. Therefore, many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection.

Most of construction (plumbing, foundation, framing, electrical, etc.) are usually subcontracted out to the lowest bidder. Speed and price, not quality being an important consideration for the builder. With multiple activities going at the same time, it’s nearly impossible for the contractor to monitor all phases of the home construction.

Environmental Testing & Inspections

 

Mold Testing & Inspections

There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. Molds can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.

Our certified inspectors will perform a visual mold inspection, utilizing sophisticated moisture detection equipment to determine areas in your home that may be conducive to mold growth.

​This allows our certified mold inspectors to take the proper types of samples in the proper locations within your home and provide the most accurate mold testing lab results.

We are not a mold mitigation company; what this means for our clients is that Direct Inspections testing will not exaggerate findings, just to get your mold mitigation business.

  • Mold Inspection (Inspection, Report, & 2 Air Samples): $325.00
  • Mold Inspection with Home Inspection (Report & 2 Air Samples): $225.00

Termite Inspections

Termites, ants, beetles, bees, and fungi are wood-destroying organisms, which can do massive damage to a home. Termites alone cause more property damage annually than fires, floods, or earthquakes combined. ​

Termites: Mud tubes on or in wooden structures such as floor joists, sill plates, wall studs and rafters.
Powder post beetles: They are often found in damp crawl spaces, old damp basements and in barns.
Carpenter ants: Coarse sawdust (frass) coming from behind siding, along sill plates, around window and door frames, and in attics. Insect parts in the frass is a sign of carpenter ant activity.
Carpenter bees: Routinely chew round, half-inch holes into wooden fascia boards, window and door frames, and even into treated deck wood.

  • Without Inspection: $65.00

” Direct Inspections inspected 2 homes for us. One home inspection in Olathe Kansas and the other home inspection in Overland Park Kansas. The first home they inspected contained many issues that were not immediately visible to the layperson. The inspection caused my wife and I to terminate our purchase contract and saved us from buying a home that needed thousands of dollars of repairs. Thank you, Direct Inspections.

”Great inspection and radon report. Detailed report and summary report with photos. Came early and got the report to us fast in a PDF. We used them twice as the first inspection revealed too many issues and we dodged a bullet! Chris was great. Our agent liked him so much she recommended him to other clients who also avoided a problem home. We feel confident that the home we are buying is sound and are aware of the small things we need to fix. Thank you Chris!!
