We inspect each home like it is our home. Our 17-year inspection experience will detect the several possible issues your current or future home may have. Whether it is new or 150 years old, we will inspect and report on major and minor issues. Our reports are highlighted with detail digital photos and arrows pointing to the exact issue.
We are certified to complete Wind Mitigation for insurance companies. Did you know you could save quite a lot of money every year on a successful Wind Mitigation inspection? Many homes with newer roofs have a great chance to save money on homeowners insurance.
A 4-Point Inspection means there are 4 areas of concern of the home and required by insurance companies. If your house is 20 years or older, the insurance company will need a 4-Point Inspection. The 4-Point inspection does not constitute a full home inspection in the least bit. The 4 Point inspection is an inspection of, 1) Electric, 2) Air Conditioning, 3) Roof, and 4) Plumbing. These current condition of these items will give the insurance company a present picture of the home’s functionality and condition of the major areas.
We will inspect your pool and pool equipment for several possible deficiencies. We will check for leaks and several other issues.
During a home inspection, if we find mold anywhere in the home, we will inform you prior to the end of the inspection. We offer mold sampling while we are doing the inspection. We cannot offer a standalone mold inspections/sample.
Roof Certification Inspection
Roof Certifications normally are required by the insurance company to ensure the roof is in good condition. Many older roofs require an evaluation to determine the ‘health’ of the shingles. We provide a ‘Certification Letter’ to the insurance companies for your coverage.
Dock / Boat House Inspections
We conduct an above water inspection of the dock structure, bulkhead, and other related assemblies. We will also inspect the electric and water if connected to the dock. Boat houses can be inspected as well.

Expert Well Water Testing
Does your home have a well? Many homes in Jacksonville have wells and some have wells just for irrigation. Sometimes there is even a shared well with your neighbor. We inspect the condition of the well and all associated equipment. Testing your well water is vital. There may be fecal matter, bacteria, chloroform, nitrites, nitrates, lead, or other harmful particles in the well water. Filtering systems in use may be outdated or just not effective. We offer a comprehensive testing program to suite your needs.
