Owning real estate is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. So, when it comes to the safety and condition of your home or business, you want to make sure you receive all the right inspections and tests from people you can trust.
The residential and commercial inspection services offered at Alert Inspection Services provide property owners with an array of solutions to give them peace of mind when investing in their next home or business.
Without a thorough inspection, your property could have any number of underlying issues that could cost you thousands of dollars if not detected early. From structural problems to infestations to more serious defects that could impact your family’s health, our team of certified inspectors is ready to help make your home or business as safe as possible.
Whether you are selling, buying or renting, you want your property to be two things: safe and sound. Without a qualified home inspector on your side, you and your family are left open to a number of costly consequences.
From structural damage to plumbing and electrical problems to undetected infestations, these defects can cost you thousands of dollars in weeks, months or even years down the road. As well as offering home and condominium inspections, our inspectors offer rental inspections for property owners who need inspections done prior to new tenants moving in.

Similar to buying a home, you want to make sure your commercial investment is sound and that there aren’t any issues that are going to cost you a great deal of money in the future. If left untreated, many undetected defects in commercial buildings quickly turn a great investment into an expensive lesson.
Our team of trusted commercial inspectors is here to provide you with a detail-oriented inspection report so that you can feel confident in your building’s health and can make an informed decision moving forward. Learn more about our commercial and multi-unit inspections here.
The second leading cause of lung cancer, radon is a naturally-occuring invisible gas that you cannot see or taste. If left untreated, radon can have damaging effects on you and your family’s health. Entering your home from the soil, radon leaks in through your home’s foundation, floor and walls.
Without a way to detect and clear your home, the toxic gas can slowly build up, putting your family at risk for radon exposure. Learn more about our radon testing here.
Different types of wood destroying insects — including termites, carpenter ants and powderpost beetles — inhabit many Michigan homes and can cause detrimental effects if left undetected.
This can include anything from damaged windows, doors and floors to more serious problems to your home’s overall structure. While many of these pests are hard to catch, our team can help. Learn more about our insect inspection here.
Whether you are dealing with a buyer’s market or a seller’s one, getting a pre-listing inspection can help give you a leg up on the competition when it comes to making quick sales at the price you deserve. Instead of waiting for buyers to provide you with a list of problems to fix — and possibly a price reduction — prior to purchasing, our pre-listing inspection will help you get ahead of the game and make necessary repairs before putting your home on the market. Learn more about pre-listing inspections here.
Also known as a pre-offer or walk and talk inspection, a walk-through inspection is a popular option for buyers looking to get ahead in a competitive housing market. These can strengthen your offer while also uncovering any big ticket problems in your prospective home. Learn more about walk-through inspections here.
While insisting on a quality home inspection is always the better option, our post-purchase inspection can help you get a better understanding of your home’s health and create a proactive approach to any problems that are bound to arise. As well as highlighting any problem areas early, our certified inspectors will offer suggestions on how to maintain your home over time, including how to avoid costly damages and protect your home’s resale value.
