Roof Inspection Assurance™

If we can’t walk the roof, we will carefully inspect it with a drone (FAA Airspace Permitting). If it is raining or the roof is covered in snow on the day of your inspection, we will come back to complete the roof inspection. Contact us for details.

It could be argued that the roof is one of the most important components of a home. However, due to steep roof pitches or materials that should not be walked on, it is often inspected only from the ground or a ladder. To overcome this critical limitation, we are FAA Licensed Commercial Drone Pilots. We carefully inspect every roof up close either by walking the roof, or when that is not possible with a camera drone (FAA Airspace Permitting).

Did You Know?

The average cost to replace an asphalt shingle roof in the United States is approximately $8,000.

Infrared Thermography Included

When it comes to giving you a thorough inspection, we pull out all the stops. When combined with moisture meters and knowledgeable inspectors, thermal imaging can reveal problems you could not see with the naked eye. We wouldn’t inspect without it.

A thermal imaging camera is just one of the modern tools we use in our inspections. In addition, we test for gas leaks, check Carbon Monoxide levels near the water heater and furnace, and use moisture meters to check areas of suspected water leaks. It’s all included as part of our standard inspection service.

Did You Know?

Infrared is not X-ray. It is really a visual thermometer. This allows the inspector to see areas of differing temperature. Sometimes dark spots can indicate moisture, but most of the time they indicate differences in temperature due to varying levels of insulation or other thermal factors.

Radon is a Real Health Threat

We know that Real Estate transactions are time sensitive. We offer 48 hour Radon tests performed with the latest Continuous Radon Monitoring equipment. We are NRPP Certified.

The EPA recommends that every home in the U.S. be tested for Radon. Radon is present in nearly every part of the U.S., however some areas have higher concentrations of Radon than others. Click the link below to visit the EPA’s Radon map.

Did You Know?

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. after smoking.

Keeping Safe During COVID

Normally, we would always want you to accompany us on our inspection. However, we know that these are unusual times. So, we have adapted to be able to bring you our same high level of service without the risks of meeting in person.

We take the health and safety of our clients and inspectors seriously. However, we do not want you to feel that you did not get the same high level of service and interaction just because we can’t meet in person. Contact us today to discover how we are using technology to deliver the closest thing to being there in person.

Did You Know?

We will arrange a video conference with you after our inspection to go over the results and answer any questions you may have.

Jason/First Summit Home Inspections is AMAZING!! Very professional and he goes the extra mile. We used him to inspect a house in a standard purchase contract. The report was very thorough and extremely detailed. Not only that, but in his online system you could actually see the suggested steps to remedy anything that was noticed. Can’t speak highly enough of them. If you’re looking for an inspector, use First Summit Home Inspections!

I would highly recommend Jason Lange and First Summit Home Inspections. To give a brief overview, I found Jason and his work thorough, comprehensive, detailed, and friendly. During my inspection process for purchasing a house I First Summit Home Inspections. While I wasn't able to personally attend the inspection due to work, Jason worked with my realtor so he could be there; I really appreciated that he was flexible enough to do this with a third party. Some additional services I utilized besides the standard home inspection was a sewer line scope, radon testing, and thermal imaging. He was very thorough and went above and beyond; he had an extremely thorough report for me that he not only emailed me, but also physically gave to my realtor to pass to me. This report had everything I could've wanted and more, things I wouldn't have thought to check or even consider were on there. The report was comprehensive and even included multiple pictures to help illustrate and highlight what he was describing. The report website was easy to use and had every single item inspected ranked on a scale of severity. With any problem noted, he included ways to mitigate or correct them. He got into every space possible such as everywhere on the roof and in the separated attics, tested every single fixture and outlet, and tested every single water line comprehensively. The best part was the phone call he coordinated with my family member who was purchasing it with me; during this call, he personally went over the report, addressing every single item in it. He was very patient and answered any questions we had and educated us on issues that are unique to Colorado. I was very grateful for his time.

Jason performed a radon test at my house. Jason was very informative, answered my questions, and provided excellent service. He practiced COVID safety protocols, always wearing a mask. He even put on shoe booties before coming into the house, very nice. The report was detailed and included several other documents to provide more information about radon.

Jason performed radon testing for us. We were very satisfied with the quality of his work. Very professional, followed all COVID protocols, explained what he was going to do, and was on time for initial test and followup test. His reports were very helpful about the dangers of radon and what our options were. We would use him again and would recommend his firm to anyone.

Jason Lange was highly recommended to us recently. Can't say enough about how satisfied my wife and I are about the expert service we received. Jason is polite and very knowledgeable. He practiced Covid safety by wearing a mask at all times while in our home. He,also, puts on shoe covers which protected our carpet. In getting to know Jason we discovered he has extensive experience in home building. He checked our furnace room and our crawl space while in our home at no extra charge even though he was only here to do a Radon test. We heartily recommend First Summit Home Inspections without reservation. Thanks Jason, Tim and Debra Specht
