South Florida’ Climate is known for high humidity, and pest and termites love humidity. Thats why they call Florida the Termite Capital of the World. Termites cause more damage to homes than flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes or fires. Homeowner insurance policies rarely cover termites. Having a professional Termite Inspection will not cost much but will give you peace of mind when buying a home. All Wood Destroying Organism reports are performed by third-party State of Florida Licensed WDO Contractors.
We recommend that sellers have their homes inspected before putting them on the market. This allows for any issues in the home to be resolved before potential buyers get a chance to see it, which can make the selling process quicker and easier for the buyer and sellers. Furthermore it builds trust and buyer confidence.
11th Month Inspection
Many newly built homes come with a one-year warranty that covers any defects in construction. After these first 12 months, the homeowner becomes the responsible party for any issues in the home. We will perform a Full Home Inspection during the 11th month of this warranty, giving homeowners the chance to have any defects repaired before the warranty expires.
Annual Home Maintenance Inspection
We always recommend that our customers have their homes inspected once a year. Maintaining homes can be tricky, especially for new homeowners, and our Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can keep owners a step ahead of potentially expensive or difficult long-term damage. We will inspect for existing issues in the home as well as anything that might pose a problem within the next year.
40-50 Year Recertification Certificate for Miami-Dade County and Broward County
The County requires a Building Inspection on Buildings over 40 years old. The Industry calls it a 40-50 Year Recertification Inspection. You will have to comply with the Governmental Regulations when receiving the notice. These enforcements are usually every 10 years after the first initial 40 Year Inspection.
The Inspection must be done by a Licensed, Qualified and Professional Engineer or Architect and usually covers the Structural Integrity of the Building along with Electrical Components.
Here at 4 Eyes Home Inspection, we will refer you to Licensed, Qualified and Professional Engineers to do the right job and fill out the official forms for this Specialized Inspection.
Most insurance companies will require a 4 point inspections, wind mitigation inspections, and roof condition inspections to be performed before a home can be insured, especially an older home. 4 Eyes Home Inspections offers each of these services as they are explained below.
4 Point Inspection
A 4 Point Home Inspection is non-invasive and covers the visual assessment of a home’s four most important accessible areas: the roof, electrical system, plumbing system, and HVAC. During these inspections, we will determine the condition of each point and how old it is so that this information can be given to the insurance company.
Wind Mitigation Inspection
During a Wind Mitigation Inspection, we will inspect the home for signs of wind damage. This is especially important in Florida, where hurricanes and severe storms occur frequently. We will suggest upgrades to the home which will prevent further similar damage and may encourage insurance companies to offer rebates.
Roof Condition Inspection/ Certification
During a Roof Condition Inspection, we inspect the roof to determine its age and what condition it is in. This information can help you decide which aspects of your roof may need to be updated, and it will allow insurance companies to know the estimated lifespan of the roof.
Drone technology has made Roof Inspections not only safer for the home inspector, but faster and more cost-effective way to gather information to the alternative boots-on-the-roof method. Many insurance companies are limiting their own staff to climb roofs because of liability and risk to injury. Falls from roofs are by far the leading cause of deaths on Industrial Job sites. We are trained and Licensed UAV Pilots.
Mold / Air Quality Testing
Over 1000 different species of Mold are common in the United States. Mold is a fungus that comes in various colors (black, white, green, or gray) and shapes. Some molds are visible and some are not. Mold can grow between walls, under floors, ceilings, Air Conditioning Equipment or in less accessible spots, such as , crawlspaces, attics and inside AC Ducts. As an additional service and for peace of mind, we can perform a visual Mold/ Air Quality testing during our Standard Home Inspection with results from a professional independent Lab.
Thermal Imaging Technology
Infrared Technology does not “see through walls”, but it’s a tool that gives us a better view of any visual moistures spots we detect during our inspection. While there is no guarantee that nothing will be missed during our visual Inspections, thermal imaging helps us perform a more thorough inspection than what we can see with the naked eye.
