Existing Home Inspections

Existing Home Inspections

Existing home inspections allow you to prepare for and repair issues before they become bigger problems. An inspector will check your home from roof to foundation looking specifically at the windows, doors, foundation, roof, basement, attic, walls, floors, heating system, electrical system, and central air conditioning. The inspector will provide a detailed analysis of any current or potential issues and suggest actions for you to complete to protect your home.

  • Make your home more energy efficient.
  • Find out about damage you didn’t even know existed.
  • Proactively take care of your home.
 Four Point Inspections

Four Point Inspections

During a four-point inspection, a licensed inspector will examine the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system, roof, electrical system, and plumbing and will compile a report specifying the age and condition of each system. This report contains important information for homeowners regarding the condition of basic components, and many insurance companies require this type of inspection on older homes before providing coverage. A licensed professional must complete the mandatory forms.

  • Never worry about your HVAC, roof, electrical or plumbing systems.
  • Receive your required inspection report for your insurance company.
  • Gain peace of mind knowing your central systems are fully inspected.
New Construction

New Construction

During a new construction inspection, licensed inspectors examine the visible construction of your home or other buildings. The inspector will perform a visual assessment of the roof; support structure; attic; insulation; gutters; walls; visible plumbing; the electrical, heating and cooling units; ceilings; doors; floors; and foundation. You will then receive a report detailing specific about your home and any areas of concern.

  • Enjoy a home you know is safe.
  • Make necessary adjustments made before moving.
  • Be fully informed on all aspects of your home.
Wind Mitigation & Verification

Wind Mitigation & Verification

Wind mitigation inspections focus on a building’s level of structural soundness during a high wind situation, such as a hurricane. Inspectors look for features that have been proved to withstand high winds and lower-category hurricane damage. Some of these features include a hip roof, concrete block construction, or shutters and opening protections. Many insurance companies will lower wind insurance premiums in coastal areas based on wind mitigation inspection reports.

  • Be prepared for all types of weather.
  • Reduce your insurance premiums.
  • Make sure your family is always safe.
Roof Inspection

Roof Inspection

While conducting a roof inspection, a professional will visually examine the interior ceiling, attic, perimeter, and rooftop of your home. The inspector will study the construction for leaks or areas where leaks are highly probable and will then provide a thorough report indicating any necessary repairs along with the estimated cost associated with repair. The report will also suggest roof maintenance and detail the condition of the roofing materials used.

  • Receive professional advice.
  • Provide your family with a safe home.
  • Make sure your roof can withstand the test of time.

 

 

Targeted Mechanical Inspection

Targeted Mechanical Inspection

A targeted mechanical inspection will evaluate your home's overall mechanical systems. This report focuses on your AC, heating, water heater, ventilation, and electric systems. An inspector will assess each system's functionality and reliability and provide you with a comprehensive report detailing any necessary repairs or suggested maintenance. Each of these systems are vitally important for the normal operation of your home and have the potential for costly repairs if left unchecked.

  • Save money by avoiding costly repairs in the future.
  • Rest assured that your mechanical systems are reliable.
  • Conserve energy by knowing which systems need repairs.
