This is the full, comprehensive inspection covering all items listed below. This inspection will provide you with all the information you’ll need to make informed decisions on your new home.

What Does the Home Inspection Cover?
- Roofing / Attic
- Structural Components
- Plumbing System
- Electrical System
- Heating and Central Air Conditioning
- Insulation and Ventilation
- Built In Appliances
- Pools and Spas
- Irrigation System
- Grounds (Drainage and issues related to the structure)
Wind Mitigation Inspection
This is an inspection performed to get discounts on your homeowner’s insurance by determining the features of the building that make it more resistant to storms. As you know, tropical storms and hurricanes are a fact of life here in Florida and can affect the premiums you pay for insurance. This inspection concentrates on and documents any features of the home, or improvements made, making it more storm resistant. These features can translate into substantial discounts on your insurance premiums. The inspection requires separate documentation with photos as mandated by the state and insurance companies. Contact your insurance agent to see if this would be of benefit to you. In most cases, it will.
I offer discounts for Wind Mitigation Inspections if performed at the same time as the Home Inspection.
Four Point Inspection
This is an inspection required by some insurance companies, especially on older homes, to determine eligibility for coverage. It covers only roofing systems, plumbing systems, electrical systems and heating and air conditioning systems to determine their age, condition and safety. This is not a Home Inspection as it covers only these four areas. The inspection requires separate documentation with photos. Contact your insurance agent before scheduling your Home Inspection to see if this inspection is required.
I offer discounts for Four Point Inspections if performed at the same time as the Home Inspection.
