State Certified Termite Inspections

Subterranean Termites are responsible for most of the termite damage in the United States, especially in the Midwest.  Approximately $2.5 billion are spent annually to control subterranean termite infestations and repair the damage they cause.  Since termites intentionally hide themselves from the prying eyes of humans, detecting the presence of these tiny soldiers is critical to controlling infestations and preventing further damage.

Termites aren’t the only wood destroying insects that can damage a home, I also search for evidence of:

  1. Wood-boring Beetles
  2. Carpenter Ants
  3. Carpenter Bees

In Kansas and Missouri, a Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) license is required. Kansas and Missouri reciprocate license requirements, which requires a Certified Non-Commercial Applicators License with 7B certification (Wood Destroying Organisms) in Missouri. In Kansas, 7A (Wood Destroying Organisms).

  1. Missouri License Number is: N6927
  2. Kansas License Number is: 26822 

Radon Measurement Service

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. As the last decay element of Uranium, radon can enter the home through cracks and holes in the foundation and even through wells and sump pumps. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and although Radon has short half-life, just three days, it’s particularly harmful when inhaled.

Home Buyers and Sellers Guide to Radon

Read and Download the “Home buyer’s and Seller’s Guide to Radon” for more information.

Measuring radon requires special equipment with precise measurement techniques and 48 hours of closed door conditions. This means the house must be closed up 48 hours prior to the service and 48 hours before a first reading is indicated for a short term test.

I will arrange a time with either you are your agent for access to the property, set up the Radon Measurement Equipment and record the correct time and placement. After 48 hours, I will retrieve the Radon Measurement test equipment and record the readings in a permanent log, compose a report outlining the current Radon levels and outline steps as to what actions should be taken.

Since every home is individual, call me to discuss your particular needs. 

I’m dedicated to providing you the best possible service. 

If it’s something I can’t handle, I’ll put you in touch with someone who can.

Rod was extremely thorough and very easy to work with.

Pointed out each and every detail. Really took his time to make sure he gave us the very best inspection. Couldn’t be more pleased with his work. Would highly recommend his services.

Luke S – Independence, MO

I'm very pleased with the service Rod provided!

He was very thorough in both the inspection and the explanation of what he found. He was happy to explain things he found as he went along, and also summarize again at the end. Rod put this first-time home buyer at ease! I would highly recommend him to inspect your new home!

Julie G – Independence, MO

You can trust Rod. He is the best and we all know buying a home is scary.

Rod makes your buying experience easy. After your inspection you will have a good understanding about your potential home. He does his job, and he knows his job and takes it 110%.  You don’t have that experience with most of these home inspection companies. I will definitely use him again for my next home inspection!
