InterNACHI Certified Residential Property Inspector

FULL HOME INSPECTION:

A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. We will provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

Certified WDO Inspector

WDO TERMITE INSPECTION:

Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later.

The state of Florida has very strict and specific regulation in place in reference to WDO inspectors.  We retain  A state Licensed WDO inspector with Florida Termite inspectors,LLC. This Guarantees that your WDO inspection will take place that the same appointed time as the home inspection and is certified by a state approved inspector(FTI,LLC). this saves time and money for all concerned parties.

Certified Infrared Inspector

INFRARED INSPECTION:

We use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, We can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Certified Annual Home Maintenance Inspector

ANNUAL HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION:

Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let us help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, our inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year. 

stucco

EIFS STUCCO INSPECTION:

Stucco is an attractive exterior cladding that has superior insulation value, weather resistance, and longevity. It can be applied over a range of surfaces, including masonry, metal, and wood. Stucco requires an expert to properly apply and repair it. Stucco also requires specialized knowledge to accurately identify its different components. We will perform a non-invasive inspection to determine the type of stucco system on your home, and make recommendations for maintenance and repair, if necessary.

A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them.

ROOF INSPECTION:

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? We will inspect your roof-covering materials from the ground, roof edges, or may walk upon the roof to assess its overall condition. We can also conduct a standalone roof inspection and certification. A roof inspection includes inspecting the roof covering, flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.

pre-drywall

PRE-DRYWALL INSPECTION:

One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make

Four Point Inspector Logo

4-POINT INSPECTION:

Many insurance companies require this inspection for older homes. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition.

wind mitigation

WIND MITIGATION INSPECTION:

Wind mitigation helps limit the amount of wind damage inflicted on a home. Many homeowner's insurance companies offer incentives, such as premium discounts and rebates, for implementing specific protections. And if you’ve already made certain improvements, a Wind Mitigation Inspection can provide the verification you need to receive credits and discounts.

Healthy Homes Inspector Logo

HEALTHY HOME INSPECTION:

Scientific evidence demonstrates a solid relationship between housing conditions and human health. Studies on the economic burden of specific defects in homes show costs rising into the billions of dollars annually. Defects in the home contribute to both poor health and the economic burdens on society at large.

moisture inspector logo

MOISTURE INSPECTION:

Moisture meters can help to detect and quantify the amount of moisture is actually in a building material. Inspectors may use a moisture meter to check areas around plumbing pipes, air conditioning units, bathroom toilets and showers, and at wooden components near or in contact with the ground surface. Appliances may cause water leaks or cause condensation problems may result in elevated levels of moisture. A professional inspector with a moisture meter is equipped to find the source of moisture and water problems in a house. Once discovered, all moisture intrusion problems must be immediately corrected before mold growth develops.

plumbing inspector logo

PLUMBING INSPECTION:

A plumbing inspection is a systematic process of assessing the critical areas of the plumbing system of a property. It is performed by certified plumbers to avoid the risk of pipe corrosion, clogs, leaks, and burst tubes that can cause flooding and property damage.

new construction

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION:

Are you building a new home? We will come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. Our inspectors can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. We also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.

Repair Verification

REPAIR VERIFICATION INSPECTION:

Have you had remodeling or repair work done by a contractor to address a deficiency, or to adapt or modernize some structure or system of your home? We will inspect it to make sure that the materials, installation and workmanship meet quality standards and your specifications. This is not a code-compliance inspection, but an inspection to check that the work was completed properly.

Home Energy Auditor Inspector Logo

HOME ENERGY INSPECTION:

Our Inspectors collect data using an advanced energy calculator developed by InterNACHI® to:

 

• estimate the home’s yearly energy usage; 

• pinpoint potential energy inefficiencies; 

• develop recommendations for energy improvements; and 

• determine your potential energy savings. 

  

The Home Energy eBook is included with your Home Energy Report. It describes additional steps you can take right now to save energy, increase your family’s comfort, and protect the environment.

Deck Inspector Logo

DECK INSPECTION:

A deck inspection should progress in much the same order as deck construction. Inspectors should start at the bottom. If a deck is deemed unsafe from underneath, the inspector should not walk out onto the deck to inspect decking, handrails, etc. The inspector should stop and report the safety issues.

electrical inspector logo

ELECTRICAL INSPECTION:

An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components (such as appliances) meet legal safety standards.

Chimney Inspector Logo

CHIMNEY & FIREPLACE INSPECTION:

A level-one chimney inspection includes a visual check of the fireplace and chimney without any special equipment or climbing up on the roof. The inspector will come to your house with a flashlight; look for damage, obstructions, creosote buildup, and soot; and tell you if the chimney requires sweeping.
