Don't let a last hour finding unravel all the hard work you have completed by not knowing the true condition of an outlined issue. Call us - we can help.
All Radon Inspections are completed with a Continuous Radon Monitor.
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, you’re at high risk for developing lung cancer. Some scientific studies of radon exposure indicate that children may be more sensitive to radon. This may be due to their higher respiration rate and their rapidly dividing cells, which may be more vulnerable to radiation damage.

We have been specializing in older inside the beltline properties for 15 years. I know the property well as I live in a 1923 Dutch Gambrel (when I purchased it) and renovated it to look like a two story salt box traditional home in Raleigh's Five Points. See the original 1923 home to the right.
We know what true dimensional heart pine lumber is. We understand the construction practices of the earlier days. We know Portland cement vs. mortar, vs concrete. We understand the Federal Pacific fuse box electrical wiring, the plumbing drum traps, and the asbestos materials. We know how plaster walls are different from drywall.
Let us evaluate your property and bring it back to its previous glory.
Call us, email us, or send a pigeon today.
What a difference right? The original home had only the front entrance. We added a left side porch and entrance. We also added a circular driveway that compliments this entrance. We removed the shed roof of the right side sunroom, lifted the roof to 15 height and made it a flat membrane roof on top and standing seam copper panels shedding to the sides. We added a brick front porch and new 8' tall French doors to enter this space. Along the front we demo'd existing porch and created another flat portico with matching traditional columns inspired by the Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst. To blend in all the new additions I added the solid blocking faux walls of all three elevations. We removed the mid span shed roof as you see the tarps here and applied old school hardie boards spaced 4" to give a lifting affect. We applied exposed copper flashing above the first level windows that appear like eye lashes. Lastly we added the three dormers of the roof to give frontal appearance, installed 100 year slate roofing, and copper half pipe gutters with round downspouts.
