Wind Mitigation

Wind Mitigation inspections were designed to help save home owners money and protect property from windstorm damage. During a wind mitigation inspection the inspector reports on the key features that decrease the amount of damage your home may receive during a hurricane or strong windstorm. These features may include concrete block construction,gable end bracing,a hip roof,single or double roof straps,a secondary water resistance barrier,shutters and opening protection. These are the standard factors that help qualify a home for wind mitigation certification. The reason for the discount is because a home with these types of features is less likely to incur costly repairs,which saves the insurance company money. These savings are then passed on to the policy holder. On average a wind mitigation certificate will save you the cost of the inspection in the first year and possibly more. Wind mitigations are performed in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties only.

Investor Property Inspections

Includes Multi-Unit Housing

Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant's departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.

Seller Certified Home Program
(Pre-Listing Inspections)

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

Thermal Inspections  

Thermal photography and videography services utilizing a FLIR T440 camera are available upon request. After heavy flooding has occurred it helps to identify how deep the moisture has absorbed within the wall for quick removal in order to help prevent mold and mildew from forming. Leaking pipes and roofs are sometimes identified when there are no moisture stains yet present.
