Sneak Peek Inside A Home Inspection

Sneak Peek Inside A Home Inspection

Want to see the behind-the-scenes on a home inspection? Join us with Riaan du Plessis with Home Boss Inspection Group. This home inspection took place on an occupied four-unit multi-family investment property in Pensacola. This video gives you a sneak peek as he was here for 7 full hours doing comprehensive inspections on the building and all four units including a full home inspection report and insurance reports to include a four-point inspection and a wind mitigation inspection.

If you’re considering a home purchase, it’s my opinion that you cannot move forward with the purchase of a property without one. Typically, home inspections are done during the “due diligence" period of your home purchase, which begins right after you go under contract. A home inspector does an extensive inspection of the property to determine any maintenance issues needed at the property. Be sure to find a licensed Florida home inspector to complete your inspection, which includes an inspection of:

Roofing and Attic Systems

Structure and Structural Integrity

Major Components like Electrical, Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning Systems

These home inspection reports are often more than 30-100 pages for a single-family home, and they are very thorough and include the age of the current components, hazards present, recommended repairs, and preventative maintenance items suggested. We even recommend a home inspection on a new-construction property.

Your home inspector can also complete the required insurance inspections needed to secure a good insurance policy in Florida. This is typically a package of inspections sent to insurance to include a four-point inspection and a wind mitigation inspection.

The windstorm mitigation inspection examines the wind-resistant features of your home including your doors, window coverings, the attic, and roof, and includes how your roof is attached to the property. These are important factors when purchasing a Florida insurance policy. Likewise, the four-point inspection analyzes the four main components of your home which include your roof, electrical, plumbing, and heating and cooling systems. The four-point inspection is a condensed version of a full home inspection. Having compared many four-point inspections to their full home inspection, I highly recommend never opting for just a four-point inspection as it’s not a comprehensive inspection you should utilize when deciding to purchase a home!
