Review Inspections

Starting at $125.00 and up

Your initial inspection is done, and the seller has just announced that everything from your home repair addendum has been completed. You’re probably eager to finish the paperwork to close on the house, but don’t forget to get a Review first. This follow-up inspection service is the only way to know for sure that everything is in the agreed upon condition. If we find any outstanding issues, you’ll get another chance to have them resolved before all repairs become your responsibility.

New Construction Phase Inspections

Starting at $250.00 and up

Having a home inspected at the key phases of the construction process can put minds at ease that no hidden defects are getting sealed away by finishing materials as the builder moves on. We will do as many New Construction Phase Inspections as needed, typically including: 

  • Structure/framing/roof
  • Pre-drywall (electrical/plumbing/HVAC)
  • Final walk-through

New Construction Inspections

Starting at $450.00 and up

The current state of new home construction is not good. High demand with fewer qualified sub-contractors has resulted in a reduction in the finish quality of homes in our market. Coupled with one sided contracts and an unwillingness by builders to correct deficient work makes a new home inspection more important than ever before.  This will include structural, mechanical, cosmetic Items as well as colored photos.

Documenting construction defects using a third party professional is the only way for a buyer to fully protect their rights and will make sure the builder takes their request for repairs seriously. This document will also serve as a legal document of defects that will protect the buyers’ rights after the warranty period expires.

We suggest a full inspection just a few days prior to closing. We also suggest a follow up inspection within a few weeks of the warranty period expiring as many defects such as settlement cracks and roof leaks may not manifest themselves initially.

New Construction 1-Year Warranty Inspections

Starting at $450.00 and up

Let us perform an 11-Month/Builder’s Warranty inspection to look for items that the builder is responsible for fixing. But be sure that you schedule this inspection service before your warranty expires. For most new construction homeowners, that means you have only the first 12 months to make a claim.

Uniform Mitigation Verification Form

The cost with a home inspection is $100
The cost without a home inspection is $125

The purpose of a Wind Mitigation is to determine the appropriateness of a given structure’s construction in the event of strong winds such as those of a Hurricane.  One of the benefits of receiving a wind inspection is identifying the potential insurance savings available to you based on the current structure of your home.  Many insurance companies provide discounts or credits for construction features proven to reduce damage from hurricanes. (This Wind Only Inspection Form goes with your wind policy)

All of these discount credits may help you lower your premium for your homeowners insurance.

Four Point Inspection

The cost with a home inspection is $100
The cost without a home inspection is $125

Insurance companies want to know that four vital systems in your home have been updated and/or maintained and in good working condition.  4pt Inspections include roof, electrical, plumbing and  HVAC. The inspection goal is to determine the approximate age of each system and condition.  Customarily, 4pt inspections are required on homes over 18 years of age.

(This is not a thorough inspection of these 4 items but simply a statement of condition & age for your insurance companies’ information.)

We will provide a computer generated written report that will include the findings for the 4 systems.

Most Insurance Companies require this report on homes over 30 years of age. We encourage you to check with your Insurance company to see if they will require you to have this report.

Mold Air Quality Testing

Fee with Home inspection: $250.00  

Fee without Home Inspection: $300.00

Each additional A/C sample: $95.00 per A/C unit

Scope of air sample testing/exclusions: the scope of this testing is the visual and accessible areas of the home. We do not do anything destructive such as removing drywall; baseboard; flooring or access enclosed duct work. Air sample test is unlikely to pick up mold growing in concealed or restricted locations such as wall cavities; under flooring; behind furnishings and may not pick up mold in the HVAC system and components if no spores are being released into the home.

We suggest that visible staining that indicate mold be tested with contact sampling. This will provide more accurate testing results. Contact sampling may require additional cost and can be determined at the time of inspection.

This is an indoor air quality test for mold. We take an air sample of the outside air and one at the A/C return, (if there is more than one A/C then we take a sample at each return for that unit). This will tell you what types of mold spores are present in the air, in the home and at what levels.

We use fully accredited local testing laboratory and results are reviewed by the most experienced mold professional in the area.  Results are normally back within 1-2 business days.

Takes 1-2 business days for our office to receive the results from the lab.

 

Protocols for Mold Air Quality Testing:

  • We need all windows and doors shut except for normal exit or entry.
  • The A/C set on a normal setting 12 hours prior to us coming out to the property.
  • No vacuuming the day of testing.
  • There needs to be no rain present for at least one hour prior to testing.
  • If it is raining during the inspection period, we may have to reschedule this test.

Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas.  You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home.  The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer.  There is about a 25% failure rate in single family homes and about a 50% failure rate in condominiums in Lee and Collier Counties.

This is a 48 hour continuous monitor test.  Once we pick the machine up and then download the results it takes about 1-2 hours to generate the report from the lab.

Protocols for Radon Testing:

  • In order for us to place the unit we need all windows and doors shut except for normal exit and entry.
  • The A/C set on a normal setting 12 hours prior to us coming out and throughout the duration of the test.
  • Closed home conditions 12 hours prior to the test and throughout the duration of the testing.
