Our Services

Buyers Inspection

In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas, both small and large, that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.

Sellers Inspection

Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: We can help you answer how serious the problems are and which must be immediately addressed and which can wait.

Radon Testing

You cannot see, feel, smell, or taste radon. Testing your home is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing for radon on the first floor and basement areas. Radon Services provided through Erie Radon Testing Services.

Pest Inspection

A typical homeowner’s insurance policy does not cover destruction caused by termites, even though they cause over 1 billion dollars in damage to homes throughout the United States each year. It’s important that homeowners understand the threat of termites, as well as other forms of pest, and take the necessary steps to protect their homes.

Septic System Dye Testing

Septic Dye Testing is a non-invasive procedure that is sometimes used to determine the condition of the components of a home’s waste system. A septic dye test can expose obvious leaks and inadequacies in the system and indicate the need for repairs or alterations.

Water Quality Analysis

Water quality is determined by the presence of contaminants, physical and chemical factors such as pH and conductivity, and the number of minerals present. We test to see if your water is free of harmful contaminants.

Comprehensive Report

Barn Owl’s inspector will provide reports that will include details on the following installed systems and components of the premises:
  • Structural System/Foundation
  • Exterior/Interior
  • Roof System

What our customers are saying

Highly recommend inspection service. Was able to do same day inspection while still being very thorough. Thank you Lisa and Steve!- Michael Pound
Steve was awesome! Very down to earth and relatable. He took his time and saw everything, he took pictures of anything that was an issue. We had our final inspection report within hours. I highly recommend him!- Jacqueline “Jax” Patterson
We had a great experience working with Steve. Very professional, responsive, and we had the reports within a few days of the inspection. He even went the extra mile and went back a few days later to check the roof since it was covered with snow the day of inspection. Would highly recommend their services. They were also the best price around.- Jerry Rooney
