Many of our customers have questions about their attics or crawlspaces that need further investigation. To help answer those questions, Energeyes offers home inspection services. We offer these to new homeowners who are considering improving these areas, and to homeowners about to put their property on the real estate market. It’s always good to understand that your home, crawlspaces and attics each have their own characteristics.
Attic Inspection Services
We’re often called in after a specific event, either a roof leak or a homeowner’s suspicion that mice or squirrels have been nesting in the insulation. Whatever the reason, the experts at Energeyes can review your attic area and provide a detailed report of their findings and recommendations. With the attic insulation providing the most protection against heat loss in your home, often an attic inspection can identify solutions that will save money and help you feel more comfortable.
What’s Inspected in the Attic?
As part of our comprehensive attic inspection, we’ll review these elements:
Evidence of roof leakage
Condition of insulation
Estimated R-value of insulation
Visual inspection for potential air leakage
Inspection of ductwork and attic ventilation
Attic access door insulation
Once we’ve had a chance to review these attic components we can provide recommendations to improve your attic’s energy efficiency and home comfort.
Crawlspace Inspection Services
Crawlspaces are a big area of concern for many Durham, NC area homeowners. For many homeowners, out of sight is out of mind! Yet, if your family suffers from respiratory problems like asthma or allergies, what’s happening in your crawlspace can affect their health! If your home seems to have a musty odor or if indoor humidity is a problem, there may be moisture control issues in the crawlspace.
What’s Inspected in the Crawlspace?
The technician from Energeyes will access your crawlspace and review the following elements as applicable:
Excess moisture or standing water
Ductwork & insulation
If a specific problem is identified, you can count on the experts at Energeyes to develop a solution and fix your crawlspace moisture problems.
Many times we’ll be called in to inspect a crawlspace or attic prior to marketing a home. In that case any lingering issues with moisture control or ineffective insulation can be identified and solved before disclosures need to be provided.
