Additional Integrity Home Inspection Services
Integrity Home Inspections of Central Florida offers several ancillary services to better accommodate the needs of buyers, sellers, and new homeowners. Whether you require the professional evaluation of a newly built home or you want to get a better idea of the condition of a pool or spa, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re selling a home, you should consider scheduling a Pre-Listing Inspection before you list. We’ll perform a comprehensive inspection of the readily accessible areas of your home, followed by a detailed report that will provide you with valuable information about individual components and the property’s overall condition. You can use this information to gain a better idea of your home’s true value and to make discretionary repairs or improvements that will improve the odds of successful negotiations with a buyer.
New Construction Inspection
Before the builder of your home conducts their pre-final walkthrough, it’s a good idea to hire the services of a third-party inspector to take an unbiased look at the home. Integrity Home Inspections will assess the structural components and installed systems, determining if there are any issues that necessitate the attention of the building contractors before the home is move-in ready.
New Construction Phase Inspection
In a Phase Inspection, we’ll arrive on-site to perform an inspection at three different stages of construction on your new home—pre-concrete pour, pre-drywall installation, and prior to the builder’s pre-final walkthrough. At each stage, we’ll evaluate current progress to ensure that there are no defective materials being used and that all components and mechanical systems are functioning safely.
A 4-Point Inspection may be required before your insurer will offer a policy for an older home. The assessment determines whether or not four important components are in satisfactory condition—the roof, HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems.
After repairs have been completed on components found to be defective during our original inspection, we’re available to return for a Re-Inspection. We’ll evaluate the repairs or improvements to verify that they were done safely and correctly—ensuring that your investment is protected.
Wind Mitigation Inspection
For Florida homeowners, implements that prevent damage from the elements are essential to the longevity of your home. They can also qualify you for several insurance credits, depending on your policy. Once we’ve performed the inspection, we’ll compile a report of any measures in place for wind mitigation. When you present this report to your insurer, it could save you substantially on your premiums.
Pool and Spa Inspection
Before buying a home that includes a pool or spa, we recommend scheduling a specialized third-party inspection to make sure that the pool or spa is safe, in working order, and justified within the context of the home’s asking price. We’ll carefully assess the condition of the pumps, motors, and other mechanical systems—while also taking a look at all stairs, ladders, and diving boards.
