Manufactured/Mobile Home Inspections
A mobile/manufactured home inspection is similar to a general inspection, but it has some special areas of concern. Not only do factory-built homes have different materials and fabrication methods, they’re more vulnerable to damage. To make the process extra complicated, some systems are neither visible nor accessible. If you are looking to purchase a mobile home in the Northeast Florida area, and need to schedule an inspection, you have come to the right place.
Wind Mitigation Inspector
A windstorm inspection, also referred to as a windstorm mitigation inspection, windstorm insurance inspection or wind mitigation inspection, is a kind of home inspection common in the coastal areas of the Southeastern United States. The purpose of a windstorm inspection is to determine the appropriateness of a given structure’s construction in the event of strong winds, such as those present in a hurricane.
Wind mitigation inspections look for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a hip roof, concrete block construction, the presence of gable end bracing, shutters and opening protections, the presence of roof to wall attachments such as toe nails, clips or hurricane straps, and the presence of a secondary water resistance barrier.
The 4-Point Inspection is often a required inspection in order to obtain (or maintain) insurance coverage. The standard 4-Point inspection covers only four key areas ( Roof, Electrical, Plumbing and Heating and A/C systems). We take the hassle out of this type of insurance inspection.
We do a thorough inspection, but the process is very simple for you. We are fully licensed, certified, and insured to meet your inspection needs. We will guide you through the process and answer any questions or concerns that you might have.
When performing the Roof Certification Inspection we ascertain the following information
•Roof Covering Material (asphalt shingle, tile etc.)
•Age of the Roof Covering
•Date the Roof was last updated
•If updated, was there a full or partial replacement
•Visible signs of damage/deterioration
•Signs of leaks
A roof certification inspection is not a guarantee or warranty. It is a unbiased, third party report on the overall health and condition of the roofing system.
Well Systems Inspections
Water tapped by a private well is often of the highest quality. When buying a home with a private well, your home inspection should include a well system check up to ensure the well is in good working order and the quality of the water produced meets health standards. Well system inspections in Florida should be considered essential.

We DO NOT evaluate the home’s water table to ensure there will be long term supply, provide a warranty or give estimates on life spans of equipment or determine if the physical well location is safe from underground contaminants or other non-visible risks.
We DO NOT CHEMICALLY TEST the quality of the water unless requested which is highly recommended for well water AND homes built before 1986 regardless of the water source.
