Houses, Homes, Buildings, Property Structures, & home Inspections:

Lexington offers homebuyers a variety of different styles of homes to purchase.

There are historic homes, beach houses, modern homes and more. For

homebuyers or home sellers of historic homes, it is important to include an

asbestos and lead inspection during their home inspection. For modern homes, it

is encouraged that the home owners or home buyers include a radon and mold

inspection during their home inspection.

With Lexington having such a rich history there is a variety of buildings,

properties, houses, and homes it has to offer. Each home and house has its

unique challenges when doing a home inspection. Your home inspector should be

well versed in the different kinds of homes, buildings, property, and houses in the

area. When doing a home inspection your home inspector should be thoroughly

checking mold, radon, water testing, sewer line, lead, asbestos, pests, pool/spa,

structural engineering, structure components, roof, plumbing, electrical,

foundation, well water, well, septic, and more where applicable. Not every house,

home, building, and property will need the home inspector to perform all of these

inspections. Your home inspector should do these inspections only when necessary. But whether on the beach in Lexington or in a historic home of Lexington, your home inspector should be well qualified to do home inspections.
