Radon Test- $99

Pest Inspection- $75

The home is inspected for ongoing and previous signs of Wood Destroying Insects such as termites, carpenter ants, powder post beetles and carpenter bees.

Water Quality Test- $85

The water is collected and sent to a lab to test for Coliform and Fecal E. Coli. This is what is most commonly required when testing well water. Other tests can be performed; please call for more information.
