Our Inspection Services
Foresight Engineering provides all our customers with the same level of thorough
and complete property inspections. Additionally, our firm is fully insured.
We offer a comprehensive inspection of the major components and systems which
make up a building. This inspection includes structural, roofing, plumbing,
electrical systems, heating and cooling systems, and all the major features
that are accessible and visible.
A thorough and detailed report is prepared for the client. If requested, copies are also provided for the buyer's attorney and the real estate agent.
Private sewage disposal systems are found in many suburban and country homes where
municipal utilities are unavailable. Our standard "open pit" inspection includes an
on-site evaluation by trained professionals, including licensed engineers where
required by state or local code. We use techniques, including excavation of critical
components as required to reveal detailed information about the system and increase
accuracy of the evaluation. These procedures are designed to reveal the operating
condition of the system using inspection methods applied by engineers and health
department authorities for decades.
Foresight Engineering's radon professionals are certified by the New Jersey Department
of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to provide testing. This requires strict adherence to
their standards and frequent evaluation of our methods and results. Foresight Engineering
was an original charter member of the American Association of Radon Scientists and
Wood Destroying Insect Inspection:
An inspection of the premises by our inspector is made to determine the presence
of termites, carpenter ants, and other wood destroying insects. Our certification
