A general home inspection, which usually takes two to three hours, includes observation of and, when applicable, operation of the plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical and appliance systems, as well as observation of structural components such as roof, foundation, exterior and interior walls, chimney, doors and windows. We also inspect for signs of Chinese drywall, which is commonly found in homes built or remodeled from 2003 to 2007.
Our inspectors follow both the Florida Association of Building Inspectors (FABI) and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Standards of Practice. The inspections cover about 1,000 check-points in approximately 400 items around the home. Findings are provided in the form of a comprehensive report that includes existing defects and indicate any potential problems.
