New Construction Inspection
It is important to have a newly constructed home inspected before it is move-in ready. 4 Eyes Home Inspections will inspect new homes for any defects in construction to ensure that the home is ready for a final walk-through and that it is safe for residents. We check for rushed jobs, faulty workmanship, and any other oversights that could potentially cause problems in the home later on.
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.
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.
Foreclosed Property Inspection
4 Eyes Home Inspections offers inspections on foreclosed properties. While these homes are typically more affordable than others on the surface, the necessary repairs can quickly make them more expensive in the long-run. These homes are more likely to have damage from vandalism and neglect than other properties, so it is especially important to have them inspected before purchase.
Most insurance companies require 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
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.
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 INSPECTIONS LLC, 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.
Inspection Report Review With Every Client
At the end of each Full Home Inspection, 4 Eyes Home Inspections will sit down with the customer to discuss our findings and answer any questions. After this sit-down, we will begin assessing the photographs we took, along with our inspection notes, to begin compiling a home inspection report using ReportHost Software. After 24 hours, this software will email the customer a link to the report, which includes all findings and included photographs.
