Home Inspection Services
The Right Information
Your home is probably the biggest investment you will ever make. Make sure you get what you pay for. DASH offers the most professional home inspection in Martinsburg WV and the 4-State area. We are dedicated to providing the best quality home inspection services available at affordable prices.
We provide these state-of-the-art inspection services:
Pre Drywall Inspection
When a new home is being built, multiple contractors are in and out of the property working on the different aspects of the build. Plumbers, electricians, framers, and insulators are all working independently to get their portions of the job done.
This may lead to mistakes being overlooked and can also result in construction defects. However, many of these defects are covered up and not visible prior to your final pre-purchase inspection. This is the reason it’s very important to inspect a new construction home during the framing and rough-in phase. Our professional inspection will help to ensure that your home is constructed properly, which will result in fewer problems in the future.
New Construction Inspection
A brand-new home doesn’t always mean well built. When you buy a new construction home without an inspection, you’re placing yourself at the mercy of the people who built it. A new construction inspection allows you to catch construction issues early before they become major problems down the road.
3 Home Inspection Tips For Buyers
As the buyer, the home inspection is your last chance to get to know your property before closing. Use these tips to get the most out of the inspection.
A comprehensive inspection is crucial for both home sellers and buyers. A pre-listing inspection will give a home seller the confidence that a hidden problem won’t kill a sale. A buyer’s inspection will give you the peace of mind that you are getting what you pay for when purchasing your new home.
Our expertly trained home inspector in Martinsburg WV and the 4-State area will thoroughly check these areas:
As you begin the purchase process of your new home, you want to make sure you know what you’re getting. The structure of a home can be vulnerable to damage due to excess moisture and the bugs it attracts, such as termites. Along with other inspections, a termite inspection report can help you understand the exact condition of the home before you buy it.
A termite inspection report is a thorough inspection and an accompanying detailed report of findings done by a registered pest control company. Our accredited and professional termite inspection partners will perform a thorough inspection of your home, looking for fungi, excess moisture, or any insects such as termites, carpenter bees, or carpenter ants, among others that could be causing damage to the structure of the home. The termite inspection report we give you will be a detailed report of all of the findings, including active and inactive infestations, as well as any resulting damage.

Radon is a silent killer that can be found in any home, anywhere. In fact, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. This invisible, odorless, radioactive gas can seep up from the ground and collect in any home. Radon comes from the natural decay of radioactive elements found in the soil. There is only one way to know if this radioactive gas is in your house. Get the most comprehensive and accurate radon testing in Martinsburg WV and the 4-State area from DASH.
We use the best state-of-the-art device available to test for radon. The Corentium Pro radon monitor takes hourly measurements over 48 hours. The device has four chambers that detect alpha particles emitted by radon decay. This certified test is the most surefire way to measure the radon level in your home.
You should test for radon before buying any home. Then you should retest your home every 2 to 5 years. Keep your records and keep track of any radon level changes. Even if a home is built to be radon-resistant, the EPA recommends regular testing. You should also test before and after making any major renovations or adding a new heating system or central air conditioning.
