Products & Services
Criterium-Dudka Engineers Standard Home Inspection is a limited visual inspection consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE) , designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property's current condition.
Our structural inspection service offers an assessment and evaluation of the structural components of your home, including:
Probing with an awl
Measuring framing members
Limited excavation around the foundation
The determination of squareness, levelness, and plumbness can be included in such an evaluation. Soil investigation and invasive testing is generally not included unless otherwise recommended or designated in writing but is available should you request it. Other systems, such as plumbing, electrical, mechanical, or interior are also not evaluated as part of this evaluation, but may be discussed with your inspector.
Criterium-Dudka Engineers reports contain information about the building, including its various components and surrounding property, vital to investment and finance decision making.
Our reports comply with industry standards such as those of Standard and Poor and ASTM 2018. Customized or abbreviated reports and formats for special needs or very large and time sensitive assignments have also been developed.
Criterium-Dudka's Phase I Environmental Site Assessments help identify potential or existing environmental contamination or liabilities. Under the ASTM 1527-05 standard, the identification of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) is required as part of any complete assessment. Criterium-Dudka Engineers' Environmental Professionals offer practical recommendations as to how to mitigate any identified RECs and can also provide insight into what potential liability, if any, might be associated with a REC. .
Sometimes, the degree or even existence of contamination cannot be confirmed without a Phase II investigation. Criterium-Dudka Engineers can coordinate Phase II investigations, but does not perform them. We will not recommend unnecessary additional studies when the risk is deemed low.
Our engineers typically perform Phase I Environmental Site Assessments concurrently with Property Condition Assessments since they are both important components of, and closely linked to, the real estate due diligence process.
