It is important to conduct a home inspection to avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs. Even if you think you have found your “dream home”, it is our responsibility to let you know if your dream home may just not be right. Buying a home is a big investment. A home inspection will assist you in understanding exactly what you are about to acquire.

What is a wind mitigation?
The purpose of a wind mitigation inspection is to determine the appropateness of a structure’s construction in the event of a hurricane or strong winds. The wind mitigation inspector looks for features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes. If your home has these features, you can receive a substantial discount on your original insurance policies premiums.
Does a newly constructed home need an Inspection?
Absolutely. A professional inspection of a new home is important. We can spot potential problems early, while they are still easy to correct. Its especially valuable to arrange an inspection before the interior walls are finished. As building professionals, we may find problem areas where the builder has taken shortcuts or not done good work.
Do I need to be there during an Inspection?
No, you aren’t required to be there for the inspection. But we highly recommend that you be present. It’s a valuable learning experience for most people and will help you get the most benefit from the inspection. By following the inspector you can ask questions directly and the inspector can explain maintenance tips for specific areas. We feel you’ll be able to best understand the finished report and get the most benefit from it by having been there during the inspection.
Will you fix the problems you find during your Inspection?
No. The code of ethics of the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations (FL-DBPR) prohibits its members from doing repair work on properties they inspect. This assures that there will never be any conflict of interest by the inspector. Our purpose is to provide an unbiased, objective third party report on the condition of the home.
