With Marysville having such a prominent 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
