Most inspection reports are purchased from a third party vendor and are designed to reflects the construction techniques predominant throughout the nation and not those found in our area of South Florida. They use libraries of prewritten clip and past boilerplate statements which, as closely as possible, may generally reflect the condition found in your home. When looked at closely they are found to contain a lot of pre written boiler plate which give the impression of depth but are mostly needles pages.

With the experience of 45 years in the industry I custom designed my report to provide what you need in the clearest and most concise way possible. Our findings are custom written to reflect exactly what we found in your home. Our multiple and clear photographs create a word picture of our findings.

Important Questions to Ask a Home Inspector

Do you belong to a professional association?

There are many associations for home inspectors, but some groups confer questionable credentials or certifications in return for nothing more than a fee. Make sure the association your home inspector names is a reputable, nonprofit trade organization. We belong to The Florida Association of Building Inspectors (FABI) which is one of the largest associations in the nation and has specialized in Florida unique concerns since 1984.

Will your report meet all state requirements?

Also, make sure the organization complies with a well-recognized standard of practice and code of ethics. Our inspections comply with the FABI Standards of Practice which meet and exceed the Florida State Standards.

How experienced are you?

Ask inspectors how long they’ve been working in the field and how many inspections they’ve completed. Also ask for customer referrals. Read More: About John

How do you keep your expertise up to date?

Inspectors’ commitment to continuing training is a good measure of their professionalism and service. Membership in FABI requires compliance with Florida's continuing education requirements and we personally exceed them with a lifetime of experience and continuing involvement in the industry.

Do you focus on residential home inspections?

Home inspection is very different from inspecting commercial buildings or a construction site. Ask whether the inspector has experience with your type of property or feature. Read More: About John. The inspector should be able to provide sample inspection reports for a similar property.

Do you offer to do repairs or improvements?

Some state laws and trade associations allow the inspector to provide repair work on problems uncovered during the inspection. It is suggested by FABI that members are not to make repairs to avoided conflicts of interests. We do not offer a repair service.

How long will the home inspection take?

On average, an inspector working alone inspects a typical single-family house in two to three hours; anything less may not be thorough. While these estimates are typical our inspections take as long as they take to thoroughly review any concerns discovered. And our comprehensive reports take additional office time to prepare.

How much will the home inspection cost?

Costs range from $300 to $500 for a 2'000 square foot home but can vary dramatically depending on your region, the size and age of the house, and the scope of services. Be wary of deals that seem too good to be true. You did your research and are buying the home you want not the cheapest one you could find. The same considerations should apply when choosing your home inspector.

Will I be able to attend the home inspection?

The answer should be yes. A home inspection is a valuable educational opportunity for the buyer and a refusal should raise a red flag. In our community many of our buyers are from out of the area and do not attend their inspection. Buyers are always welcome during the inspection process. We will listen to and address any questions you may have before the inspection. And thoroughly review the inspection with you when we are finished. Your report will typically be emailed by he end of the day (within 24 hrs).
