Frequently Asked Questions

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home. The inspection looks at the major components, from the roof to the foundation.

What does a home inspection include?

The home inspection will include the condition of the visible structure, roof, attic, walls, ceilings, windows, central heat and air conditioning, plumbing system, electrical system, and the foundation for the home. The inspection is non-invasive, meaning we will not cut holes in the walls to observe components, and we will not cause damage to the items inspected.

Why do I need a home inspection?

Your home will probably be the largest single investment you will ever make, so you should examine as much as possible about the home before the purchase is completed. The home inspection will include the positive aspects of the home as well as some maintenance tips to keep your home in good shape.

The property is furnished. Can I still get it inspected?

Of course. We do furnished properties all the time, however it is important to keep in mind that all inspections are “visual” only and non-invasive.  Our inspector will not move any of the furniture, or unplug cable/wires, look inside walks, remove unmount appliances, etc etc.

The property I’m buying am afraid is not up to code. Will the inspection get me in trouble or will I be reported?

Big NO. Our inspectors’ job is to educate and assist you in the purchase of a new(old) property. We encounter systems that are not up to code all the time, just because is not up to code now it does not mean it was not up to code when it was first installed. Building Code has changed in Florida 6 times since Hurricane Andrew but in 1992 and as it continues to improve for the better of our communities things around our properties will fall behind. Unless the system is unsafe or a thread to someone’s life, you can rest assure our inspectors will point it out and recommend a professional/licensed specialist.

Can I have a property with no services inspected?

We would highly recommend that water and electricity is turned on 24 prior to our arrival. Proceeding with an inspection for a property that has no services can’t guarantee you there are no electrical issues with the property or even a bursted pipe. Have water and electricity allows our inspectors to visual confirm when a system is not functioning or faulty.
