Worried about termites? We at JAX House Dr. also work with PestXpress Pest Control. So, your one stop shopping ends here and they will do the WDO inspection in conjunction with the home inspection. They are fully licensed by the Department of Agriculture and certified. They will inspect all areas for any wood destroying organism. Termites are most common, but there are other concerns as well. There are powder post beetles, carpenter ants, carpenter bees and the most common, fungi. They inspect for all WDO’s and report back to you with photos and written description of the location of WDO.
Does your new home have a well? Many rural areas around Jacksonville have a private well. Sometime there is even a shared well with your neighbor. We inspect the present 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 Filtering systems in use may be outdated or just not effective.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.

A 4 Point Inspection is only 4 areas of concern of the home and required by most, but not all insurance companies if your house is 20 years or older. These inspections do not constitute a home inspection in the least bit. The 4 Point inspection is a check on 1) Roof, 2) Air Conditioning, 3) Electric, and 4) Plumbing. These systems are looked at but not a full inspection is conducted in the same manner as a home inspection. This is only for insurance purposes and a separate form must be filled out with attaching photos of all areas mentioned.
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 at the home doing the inspection. We cannot offer stand alone mold inspections/samples. This must be accomplished at the time of inspection due to Florida Law. We will overnight the samples to the lab and the results should be available within 2 business days. The results will let you know which type was identified and the effects it has on human health.
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. Some shingles will last longer than determined life expectancy and some, of course, will not last as long as they are expected. There are multiple factors contributing to the life of your shingles. We will inspect the roof system and determine an approximate life expectancy from the time of inspection. This form is submitted to you for your insurance company.
We will inspect your pool and associated equipment for any deficiencies. There are several different styes of pools and we can inspect them all. If there is a hot tub attached or detached, we can inspect them as well. We will inspect the visible pumps, pipes, valves, filter system, and also check for several safety related items.
Dock / Boat House Inspections
We conduct an above water inspection of the dock structure and related assemblies. We will also inspect the electric and water if connected to the dock. Boat houses can be inspected as well.
