Areas We Inspect

When our professional inspector arrives at a property, you may wonder what exactly they will take a look at and assess. A full property inspection leaves no stone unturned- you can expect an extensive examination of all aspects of the property, as well as an in-depth report of our inspector’s findings. Our property inspections include:

  • Structural Inspections - This includes taking a look at every area that’s crucial to the structural integrity of the property, including the foundation, walls, floors, roofing, and siding. Carefully examining the structural components of the home or property is one of the most important parts of the inspection.

  • Chimney Inspections - Having a properly sealed, well-functioning, and safe chimney is extremely important. Inspecting the chimney includes making sure that it is clean and well-maintained and there are no problems with its structure and the way it vents out of the house.

  • Termite Inspections - Termite damage in a home can be a huge problem for a buyer or seller. Looking for signs of termite damage that could potentially cause major issues to a property is a standard part of any inspection.

  • Electrical Inspections - Electricity is a necessity for our everyday lives, and examining the wiring of a property can be a dangerous job if not done properly. Inspectors look at a property’s electrical components to ensure everything is up to current codes and that there are no potential risks to tenants.

  • Plumbing Inspections - Water can cause an immense amount of damage to a property, so plumbing inspections are an absolute must to protect your home. This includes looking at and running any fixtures such as toilets and faucets, observing how they drain, looking for signs of leaks, and examining any water and sewer/septic lines for potential issues.

  • Pool and Spa Inspections - Although pools and spas are wonderful features to have in a new home, they can quickly turn into headaches if they have issues such as leaks. Thoroughly inspecting these water features is a critical part in making sure they’re an asset rather than a liability.

  • HVAC Inspections - Heating and cooling systems are essential components of any property, and a good inspector will make sure they’re running smoothly and efficiently. This includes assessing the HVAC units, how they run, and noting any red flags.

  • Interior Inspections - An interior inspection focuses on the inside of a home and looks for issues with doors, windows, floors, walls, and ceilings. An inspector may open and close different components of a home and take a close look at any areas of concern.

  • Water Heater Inspections - Your property most likely needs hot water, and the hot water tank will be inspected for signs of damage, age, level of efficiency, and more.

  • Attic Inspections - The attic is a great place to find water damage, mold and mildew, and roofing problems. An inspector will take ample time to ensure none of these problems are plaguing your home in the attic.

  • Insulation Inspections - Damage to insulation or a lack of insulation can pose huge problems for a homeowner and high energy bills. An inspection report will reveal if there are any issues with the insulation in a property.

  • Garage Inspections - Garages often house valuable possessions such as automobiles and power tools, so inspecting this area of the home and ensuring that it will protect those possessions is important. Inspection of this area will look at the structural components of the garage to check for roof damage, leaks, and other issues.

  • Basement Inspections - The basement is often a forgotten area of the home, making it the perfect place for issues to fester and get worse, unbeknownst to the homeowner. Inspection of the basement will often focus on moisture levels, foundation issues, and other serious red flags.

  • Crawl Space Inspections - Like a basement, a crawl space often sees moisture, mold, leaks, and other silent problems that can be revealed with careful inspection.

  • Carbon Monoxide Testing - A good inspection will ensure that a home has properly working carbon monoxide detectors installed. These detectors alert residents to the presence of the deadly odorless and colorless gas, which is essential to keep homeowners safe. Although these detectors can always be added, it’s an important thing for an inspector to note if they are not present.

  • Radon Testing - Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that occurs naturally in the earth that can pose serious health risks to a person if they are exposed over a significant length of time. Conducting a radon test before purchasing a property can alert the buyer to whether or not radon mitigation is necessary.

Inspections for Buyers and Sellers

The team at Florida Premier Inspectors conducts inspections for both home buyers and sellers. A pre-listing inspection is great for home sellers because it can help identify any issues that should be addressed before putting the home on the market and can assist the listing agent in more accurately pricing the home. Buyer inspections are not only a requirement for banks to furnish a mortgage but also help the buyer to understand exactly what they are purchasing and put their mind at ease. Renters can also get an apartment inspection to gain peace of mind about their potential new home before they sign an agreement with a landlord.

New Construction Inspections

You might assume that there is no need for an inspection when a home is brand new, but that is far from the case! It’s crucial to ensure that a new construction home is built to the proper safety standards. Oftentimes, problems only come to the surface after a home has been lived in for some time and things like the plumbing and electricity are being used regularly. We can perform a thorough inspection on your new construction home to make sure the builders did a high-quality job so that you don’t have to deal with problems down the road.
