A 4-point inspection is a basic evaluation of four critical areas of a home—the roofing, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection is often required by insurers before they’re willing to issue or renew a policy on an older home.
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.
Pool & Spa Inspections
A pool and spa inspection is a comprehensive assessment of the overall condition and safety of a property’s swimming pool and spa facilities. The inspection evaluates the structural integrity, equipment condition, water quality, and safety features of the pool and spa.
Getting a condo inspection isn’t something that people always think about, but it is just as important as getting a home inspection on a residential home. Condos can have many of the same issues that homes can have, so it is important to make sure that the area is a safe place to live!
Frequently Asked Questions
Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to ensure you know what to expect during your home inspection.
A home inspection includes checking for any structural issues such as foundation cracks, roof leaks, plumbing issues, electrical wiring, heating/cooling systems, insulation, windows, doors, chimneys, etc. Depending on how big the property is, a home inspection typically takes 2-3 hours.
Ensure all inspection points are free from clutter, including any closets that might lead to a crawlspace or attic, and clearing some space around your home’s perimeter. It’s also important to check the functionality of all built-in appliances, electric, and gas. If you don’t plan to attend the inspection, make sure your inspector has access to the home, and all pets are properly contained or moved.
A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of your home’s components. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your home inspection report, but these are strictly informative.
While you can legally skip a home inspection in many cases, doing so could mean you may end up buying a home that has major issues that need to be fixed.
While a home inspector may recommend some minor repairs, they are not qualified to make major repairs. He or she can provide information about what needs to be repaired — and it might be helpful to know that information — but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this give you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.
A home inspection can affect appraisals for two reasons: 1) The inspector may find something wrong with the property that would lower the value of the home, 2) The inspector may find things that need repair which could increase the value of the home. If the inspection finds issues that require repairs, then the seller has to decide whether they want to fix them themselves, or hire someone else to do it. If the buyer wants to purchase the home, he/she must be willing to pay for those repairs.
