Types of Inspections Offered
Full Site-Built and Manufactured Homes
This inspection is to perform a visual non invasive inspection of all of the major components of the home or commercial building and to provide the CLIENTs with a written report identifying the defects that INSPECTOR both observed and deemed material at the agreed upon time of inspection. The report is only supplementary to the seller’s disclosure and we encourage and advise the client to be present for inspection. INSPECTOR may offer comments as a courtesy, but these comments will not comprise the bargained-for report.
4-Point Insurance Inspection
Insurance companies have become increasingly reluctant to issue Homeowner Insurance Policies on older homes (usually 25 years old or more). A common concern is that there may be conditions in an older home that could become a liability to them. For instance; a home with a roof nearing the end of its serviceable life may fail while under the policy and the homeowner may seek reimbursement from their insurance company for damages to the home or its contents. Similar concerns extend to the condition of the HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems in an older home. If these elements are in poor condition, in need of being updated or replaced or were improperly installed, they may fail and cause fire or water damage to a home. This is why it's imperative to have it inspected by a Certified Inspector.
Wind Loss Mitigation Inspection
Protecting your home and property is important to your peace of mind. In Florida, that protection should include features to prevent windstorm damage.
In a severe wind storm, such as a hurricane, homes are battered by heavy wind and, often, rain. Features that help protect against wind damage - wind mitigation features - make a home stronger and help it withstand these forces. Wind mitigation features that are documented by a wind mitigation inspection also can save you money over the long term by helping you qualify for discounts on your insurance premium.
Roof Certification Inspection
This inspection is sometimes requested by the insurance company to better realize the overall condition of the roof, roof materials and approximate the age and remaining serviceable life.
