A Wind Mitigation report determines what credits you may receive on your Home Owner's Insurance policy. Items such as shutter protection, nail spacing, and truss spacing are some of the things we take into consideration. Broward and Miami-Dade counties are considered High Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ) and this report could give a significant credit to homeowners in these counties.
This report will assess the general condition of plumbing, electrical, and roof systems of the home. We check for damaged trusses, missing shingles, aluminum branch circuit wiring, polybutylene pipes, and any type of leak.
These inspections provide sellers with information about the current condition of their home, prior to placing it on the market and minimizing the potential of any surprises. This report will help the seller make any repairs, or allow him/her to price the home accordingly (based on needed repairs, future expenses, etc.). These inspections usually facilitate the FOR-SALE-BY-OWNER transactions.
New-Construction Inspections are typically performed within the first year of the home being built. This is the time frame that most builders will allow any deficiencies to be repaired, at no extra cost to the new-home owner. Most builders include a 1-year warranty on their homes, as part of the home-buying process.
The swimming pool can be a tremendous asset or a potential liability when trying to purchase a home. There are many different components (pump, chlorine generator, heater, etc.) within a pool system, and their condition could affect the offer being made. The inspector will conduct a thorough assessment of your pool and all of these components. You will receive an itemized report with photographs and deficiencies.
What is Chinese Drywall?
Chinese drywall refers to an environmental health issue involving defective drywall manufactured in China and imported to the United States starting in 2001. Samples of the drywall have tested positive for the emission of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), such as carbon disulfide, carbonyl sulfide, and hydrogen sulfide. This is determined by the presence of blackened and corroded ground wires and/or copper plumbing.
Roof certifications are usually performed when renewing your home insurance policy. Your insurance agent will notify you if it's needed, and if any other additional inspections may be required. We offer discounts when scheduling one or more inspections simultaneously. Click on PROMOS for further information.
