Our inspection provides an invaluable learning and discovery experience during which your questions can be answered.
You will gain insight into home maintenance tailored specifically to your home. We encourage you to accompany us during the inspection.
In addition, our Clients are offered free telephone consultation after the inspection; our services do not expire.
Avoid a costly mistake; repair prices could be into the thousands $$$. We provide an unbiased inspection to properly evaluate the real condition of the property you may call HOME... or if you are an investor and want to be sure you have as much information as possible about the integrity of the structure.
If you’re a buyer
we provide you with information so that you can make an educated decision on one of your largest investments, your home and so there are no "big surprises" after the contract is complete. We provide you with additional tools to ensure your choice is the right one for you.
If you’re a seller
understanding the home inspection process and preparing your home for the inevitable evaluation not only helps to ensure that the transaction goes through but can often translate into getting a top dollar price as well.
Homeowners occasionally need to get an inspection to increase savings on insurance premiums. A satisfactory home inspection can be the difference of hundreds of dollars in annual premium savings! Consult with your insurance agent for details.

• Our goal is to help you, our Client, make an educated decision; it is a risk management tool for homebuyers, homeowners and Realtors®. We invite our client to be present and involved during the inspection.
• Our philosophy about inspections is simple - we treat you like family. We inspect like we would for family or ourselves. Our goal is to become your personal home consultant for life.
• We are not satisfied until you are, "inspecting your home as if we were purchasing it ourselves."
We offer our 4-Point Inspection which inspects the roof, electric, plumbing, and air conditioning system. Your insurance company may want this report.
We offer also offer Wind Mitigation (Windstorm) reports which looks for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a hip roof (sloped on all sides like a pyramid); roof to wall connections that are installed with hurricane clips/straps such as toenail, clips, single wrap or double wrap. This inspection may give you discounts on your insurance premium. Having a roof that meets wind codes on your house would qualify it for the wind mitigation discount and possibly other insurance benefits. You will need to contact your insurance company to determine what these savings are.
Our goal is to provide our Client(s) an educational risk management tool by providing a thorough unbiased home inspection report (for home buyers, sellers, Realtors and homeowners).
