Complete Home Inspection

When you hire Four Dogs Inspections, you’ll receive the best inspection services in northern New Jersey! Each of my Complete Home Inspections comes with a free radon test. Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing gas that is undetectable without professional testing. I include this as part of my inspection service to make sure your family is safe in your new home.
