STANDARD HOME INSPECTION
This is for clients buying their primary residence. We inspect all systems of the house in a methodical and systematic way. We assess all components, notify the buyer of any current deficiencies, and point out any future areas of concern. We test every appliance and operate them through every cycle.
For Investors, looking to purchase properties with 4 or more rental units. We will point out all the significant findings, and notify you of older appliances. Typically, the deficiencies are itemized on the report for each unit.
"SMART" HOME INSPECTION
This inspection is for Wi-Fi Certified homes. We assess the smart-components (door lock, door bell, thermostat, lights and garage door opener) and verify their operability through the Amazon platform. Then we move on to the other components of the house.
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.
FOUR POINT INSPECTION
The Four Point Inspection 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 INSPECTION
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 an incentive to new-home buyers.
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.
CHINESE DRYWALL INSPECTION
This refers to a condition found in homes built around 2001. Some imported drywall from China was off-gassing VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and oxidizing copper components within the house. Typically electrical and HVAC components are left corroded and blackened.
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.
We inspect the sprinkler pump, indexing valves, panels and timers. We ensure that all sprinkler heads are operational and that the lawn receives full coverage (no dry spots).
