House in North Florida during home inspection

Home Inspections

Whether you are looking to buy or sell, our certified inspector utilizes years of construction experience to examine your property from roof to foundation and everything in between. Inspection services cover single family residences, town home/condominiums, duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, additional buildings, and light commercial properties.

Radon Testing

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that results from the decay of uranium. Radon can be found in well water, igneous rocks and soil. This odorless, colorless and tasteless gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. Our inspector will conduct a 48-hour radon test to determine if your home is subject to dangerous levels of radon. If so, he’ll explain the steps you can take to mitigate your radon exposure. This test can be performed with a home inspection or as a stand-alone service.

Give us a call if your insurance company is requesting a four-point inspection or roof condition certification. If your home has hurricane resistant features we can also complete a wind mitigation inspection which can potentially save you hundreds on homeowner’s insurance.

02. Pool Inspections

When buying a home with a pool, make sure you know what’s going on under the water. Our pool inspection provides a comprehensive examination of proper bonding equipment, main drain, skimmer, pump, pool system function/operation, filter and heaters, and safety barriers.

03. Crawlspaces

A thorough crawlspace inspection is crucial to uncovering potential plumbing and foundation issues. However, many crawlspaces have entrances too small to access. Our Big Crawl allows us to still access those crawlspaces and conduct a thorough inspection.
