“A Best Radon Systems” a division of “A Best Home Inspection” is a family business providing expert, residential and commercial radon mitigation. 30+ years of construction experience and 100% success rate in lowering radon below 4 pCi/L in several hundred homes and businesses, additionally having conducted over 2500 home inspections and over 1500 radon tests, gives me a unique handle on what it takes to properly mitigate radon in a home or business. The proper installation of radon mitigation systems and proper radon testing are skipped over by many home inspectors. Since NY State does not require radon systems to be inspected as part of a home inspection most home inspectors are not knowledgeable of what constitutes a proper radon mitigation system.

Why Choose “A Best Best Radon Systems?”
Experience is Paramount
For a great Syracuse home inspection, you need a knowledgeable inspector who can communicate well verbally and with the written report. I’ve inspected over 2500 homes, have 30+ years experience in all aspect of home construction and have a keen eye for detail. I work for the buyer’s best interest, not the realtors and will clearly explain any defect or maintenance issues, answering all questions to your satisfaction and provide you with a detailed written report.
Take a moment to look at my sample reports and client reviews to get an idea of the detailed inspection and report you will get. As a full service inspector, I will not hesitate to comment on important issues outside the basic NY State Home Inspection standards of practice, since I’m qualified to provide about 30 ancillary services that most inspectors don’t offer, and therefore will not comment on them.
Awesome Home Inspection Reports
Second in importance, only to a home inspector’s knowledge and experience, is the quality of the written home inspection report. A high-quality, professional report should be well written, comprehensive and include color photographs of defects that were found. It must communicate clearly leaving no doubt as to condition of the home systems and components. In a lot of ways the quality of the home inspection report is more important than the home inspection itself, especially if you’re not present during the inspection. You will be hard pressed to find a better quality inspection or report. Good inspection work takes time, a quality home “inspection” takes 2 to 3 hours of actual inspecting. Add to that time another 30 to 90 minutes for answering questions and explaining things to clients depending on extent and complexity of concerns. That’s an average of 2.5 to 4.5 hours for the inspection and does not include report writing. Quality home inspection reports are written back at the office which take an additional 2 to 4 hours. See some tips on Comparing Inspection Reports. Beware of inspectors who deliver “quickie reports” on site. Compiling a report while at the house (either a hand written check-list or a template on a phone or tablet) is not quality work. If they do an inspection and compile a report in 1 to 2 hours, believe me, most of that time is filling out the report, very little actual inspecting. Regardless of how the report “looks” it will lack detail and substance. The best inspectors provide a narrative style, digital report with pictures via email within 24 hours and making themselves available for followup questions by phone or email. True professionals will have sample home inspection reports available for comparison.
