Residential Inspections

Residential Inspections

For new and experienced home-owners, this is a thorough inspection to catch common defects so you understand the investment you’re making. In addition to a thorough report with many photos and notes, we spend the final hour of the inspection walking through the home with you, pointing out all of our findings and answering all of your questions.

You will walk away feeling familiar and confident in your knowledge of your new home. You will know things like where your shut off valves are, how to change your furnace filter, and routine maintenance tips to help extend the life of your appliances and mechanicals.

Note for New Construction: $100 off your 11-month New Construction inspection if you schedule it at the same time as your New Construction home inspection. Call for details.

Building a home is an exciting process, but there is a lot to remember!

5-Point Inspections​

This is a great option for those that just need the major systems of a home inspected. We provide you with a report that gives a detailed look into the 5 most expensive areas of the home: Foundation, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanicals, and Exterior. We also spend the final 30 minutes of the inspection walking through the home with you, pointing out all of our findings and answering all of your questions.

We look for things like cracks or settling in the foundation, leaks in the plumbing, DIY or improper electrical wiring, damaged siding or safety hazards, and age/expected life remaining for mechanicals.

Walk & Talk Consultations​

Walk & Talk Consultations​

Do you ever wish you could have an expert along with you for showings to give you feedback about the current state of the home you’re considering? Wish no more and schedule a Walk & Talk Consultation! One of our certified Home Inspectors will join you for the showing and give you a high-level overview as time allows of the 5 major components of the home: Foundation, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanicals, and Exterior. You can ask as many questions as you want in real time! No report is provided, and consultations are booked in one-hour increments.

TISH Evaluations (St. Paul)

TISH evaluation

Truth in Sale of Housing (TISH) Evaluations are required by the City of St Paul prior to showing a property for sale. These evaluations must be completed by a licensed evaluator who will look at the condition of the home and write a report based on city requirements. One required and often-missed item that you can be sure to have completed prior to our inspection is a working, hard-wired smoke detector.

$225

Preventative Maintenance Inspections​

Preventative Maintenance Inspections​

The State of Minnesota requires condo and townhome associations to have a current preventative maintenance plan. Our certified Home Inspectors will provide an objective, third-party inspection of the areas requested by the association with a report that can be used to inform the preventative maintenance plan. These plans forecast repairs and ongoing maintenance so they can be planned and budgeted for, and residents can have confidence in the safety of their homes and pride in the community they are a part of.

Radon Testing​

Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that can be present in homes and can only be detected with specialized equipment. Radon is the #1 leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We offer Radon Testing as an add-on to our inspection services as well as a stand alone service. Our trained technicians will drop off the Radon Testing equipment with instructions on how to prepare your home for the test. The test must run for a minimum of 48 hours and then the Tech will schedule a time to pick up the equipment.

We use state-of-the art technology that allows results of the report to be emailed to you immediately upon completion of the report, rather than waiting for the Tech to arrive and retrieve results. If radon is high (over 4 pCi/L) it is recommended that you have a Radon Mitigation System installed to continually remove radon from the home.

  • Radon Testing $200
  • Radon Testing (without Inspection) $250

Radon Mileage Fees

Radon Mitigation

It is estimated that 40% of homes in Minnesota have high levels of Radon gas, which poses a significant health risk to many Minnesotan families. If your home is tested for Radon and the result shows high Radon levels (over 4 pCi/L), it is recommended that you have a Radon Mitigation System installed. This system is specifically designed for your home to determine the most effective way to continuously remove the gas. Our Radon Mitigators are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health and certified by the National Radon Proficiency Program. We provide a free quote for system installation, and you will get the same clear and friendly communication you’ve come to expect from Marigold. Our team will design and install your mitigation system, clean up behind them, and leave you with a reliable system guaranteed to bring your Radon levels to under 2 pCi/L.

Visual Sewer Scopes​

Visual Sewer Scopes​

An oft-forgotten area of the home are the sewer lines that run underground from our homes to the street. Unfortunately, out-of-sight, out-of-mind isn’t the best plan when it comes to your sewer lines, because back-ups and blockages can occur at any time and cause expensive (and sometimes gross) repairs. Our trained technicians provide a visual into your pipes with a video uploaded to your client portal. They give you the current status of your pipes and provide any recommended repairs by looking for things that can damage your pipes such as tree roots and erosion.

Level 2 Chimney Inspections​

Fireplaces can be wonderful, cozy additions to homes, especially during our long Minnesota winters. Unfortunately our winters can be hard on our chimneys and cause damage that can affect proper functioning. Our Level 2 Chimney Inspections are a top-down, bottom-up, interior, and exterior inspection of the physical state, safety, and functionality of the chimney. A thorough report is provided. We offer these as an add-on to our inspection services as well as a stand-alone service.

Mold spores are everywhere, all the time. However, certain strains of mold can cause allergies, or serious, even deadly reactions. Mold testing is ideal when you need documentation to support mold mitigation.

Mold Testing via Air Sampling: Our trained technicians will take 3 air samples throughout the home to test for the presence of mold spores.

Intrusive Moisture testing for Stucco: Our technicians will carefully drill into the stucco, test for moisture, and then repair the hole.

Intrusive Moisture (Stucco)$550

Pest & Wildlife Inspection

Pest and Wildlife intrusion is very common in homes in Minnesota. Rodents and other wildlife often carry diseases that can be harmful to homeowners and their pets. We inspect both the interior and exterior of the home. The attic space provides a lot of information about a home and any pest or wildlife concerns that may have arisen in the past. We check the most common interior places of concern for pests and wildlife.

We then check the exterior of the home for gaps left during construction, gaps underneath the siding or at siding corners, and gaps in the foundation as a result of settling. The roof, along the roofline, vents, chimneys and more are inspected as well, because they are historically the most commonly used areas for rodent and wildlife intrusion. You will receive a report in your Client Portal detailing our findings.

Pest & Wildlife Inspection: $250
