Services I Provide
Radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally produced within the earth. This can build up inside the home and can increase the risk for lung cancer. According to the EPA, radon may cause as many as 20,000 deaths each year in the USA. I am a licensed radon tester in New Jersey, and can test your home for radon gas to help you evaluate your risk. These are standard minimum 48 hour tests.
I perform my home inspections as if I were buying the home myself, but without blinders on. Pretty much everything that makes up the home, is attached permanently to the home, or is permanently installed in the home (for example appliances) is inspected. I take lots of photos and wrap all the information up in a digital report. Which is delivered to you within a couple of days of the inspection.
I offer thorough non-destructive visual Termite & WDI inspections. My inspections are performed to the highest standards and always include the NPMA-33 report form typically required by mortgage lenders. Inspections search for termites, carpenter bees, wood destroying beetles, carpenter ants and more. This service is currently offered only with a home inspection.
Every Inspection Is
Performed by Me
When you hire Good Counsel Home Inspections, you don't play inspector roulette. I am the only inspector, and I handle the entire inspection process. I will never outsource your inspection to another inspection company.
Done With Integrity
My inspections and my reports are only for your benefit. I don't do soft reporting or sugarcoat my findings. Selling you the home isn't my job. I guarantee you that you will receive my Honest Opinion 100% of the time.
Beyond the Standards
My inspections are performed not only to NJ State Regs, but also to the more rigorous InterNACHI Standards of Practice and often beyond. I will investigate any part of the home which is accessible and any item with few exceptions.
Done At Your Convenience
It can be hard to get away from your job to attend a full home inspection. That's why I offer home inspection appointments every day of the week with start times as early as 9 AM and as late as 4 PM.
I provide you with a neatly organized digital report complete with lots of photos and explanation. This way its easy for you to understand, use your report, and explain to others too.
Reported on as Quickly as Possible
I know you're on a schedule. That's why I guarantee fast turnaround. Your inspection should't hold you up. Digital reporting gets the report to you fast and lets you distribute it quickly as needed.
What My Clients Are Saying
I could not be happier about picking Good Counsel Home Inspection to do the home inspection for the home that I would like to buy. Mr. H. arrived before I did, explained concerns and offered information about home repairs on replacements needed.
John is extremely thorough and excellent at his craft. He was very reasonably priced and by far exceeded all of our expectations. He sent us 143 page report on our home inspection that uncovered some major issued we had to address.
This is the parent of the buyer. We were very satisfied with the job done by this company. We will certainly use them again since this home did not work for my daughter . My husband and myself are thinking of moving to the area in the near future and we will call upon them again.
