Full Home Inspections

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

Wind Mitigation Inspections

A wind mitigation inspection can help homeowners fortify their homes against wind damage, resulting in potential insurance discounts, increased safety, higher resale value, and peace of mind. This specialized home inspection evaluates a property's ability to withstand strong winds and tropical storms.

4-Point Inspections

A 4-Point Inspection is a basic evaluation of four critical areas of a home—the HVAC systems, the roofing system, the electrical system, and the plumbing system. This inspection is often required by insurers before they’re willing to issue or renew a policy on an older home.

New Construction Phase Inspections

During a new build there are several key phases where it is beneficial to have an objective review of the construction process. This will aid in detecting defects before they become hidden problems. These phases can include: Footings and slab; Exterior walls and trusses; Rough framing and roof coverings; Pre-drywall and Pre-closing.

11-Month Warranty Inspections

Just because your home is new, doesn’t mean it is defect-free. At your 11-month mark, this may be your last chance to take advantage of your warranty!

Maintenance Inspections

A maintenance inspection assesses a property's condition to identify potential issues before they become major repairs. It includes detailed evaluations of the building's systems, components, and structure, along with recommendations for preventive maintenance and repairs to extend the lifespan of the property.

Roof Certification Inspections

Roof certification inspections involve a thorough examination of a roof's condition and quality by a licensed inspector. This inspection is intended to provide the property owner with a report detailing the roof's current state and providing recommendations on repairs or replacements if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual inspection examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. Home inspections are designed to protect the buyer, by revealing problems they might not have noticed otherwise.

Our full home inspections start at $375. The cost will vary based on the square footage of the home. For wind mitigation inspection and other specialized inspections, please call, text, or email us for a quote! 

Home inspections generally take 2 to 4 hours to complete. The duration of a home inspection depends on many factors such as the size of the home, the condition of the home, and the ability to access certain areas of the home (roof, crawl space, attic, etc.).

Although it is not necessary, we do recommend that you attend the inspection so you can ask questions and learn more about the home. You will learn a lot from the inspection report, but we always encourage you to attend!
It is important to note that no house is perfect. At the end of the home inspection process, we will provide a detailed report that describes the physical condition of the property, with images and videos highlighting what may need repair or replacement. The information provided is to allow a potential buyer to make an informed decision about moving forward with the transaction. It is not pass or fail.
