Comprehensive Property Inspections
A thorough Home Inspection with Signature Building Inspections is able to detect issues that may have not been apparent to you as the buyer, seller or real estate professional. Many times these issues have been in occurring for months or in some cases years which may result in extensive damages. That is why it is critical to have a Licensed Home Inspector to carefully examine all areas of the home that the inspector can visually see, such as:
- Exterior structural elements
- Interior, including the structure, drywall, ceilings and flooring
- Roof system
- Electrical, including the wiring and breakers
- Major appliances
After the inspection within 24 hours on most homes, the inspector will email a copy of a detailed report that consists of pictures, explanation of findings, and recommendations. With the information provided potential buyers or sellers can save time and money by making an informed decision on repairs and/or replacements in the home.
Signature Building Inspections also offers a la carte home inspection services.
Discover any problems with your building before you put it on the market. Whether you choose to repair the issues or not, this service helps you set a price you’ll feel confident about.
New Construction Phase Inspections
New homes aren’t perfect. These inspections occur before and after the drywall is in place, which ensures your new home is safe, constructed properly and move-in ready.
11th Month Inspections
Make sure everything from your major appliances to your plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems are still working properly before your one-year warranties expire.
Annual Home Maintenance Inspections
Keep your property safe by catching problems early, when they’re less expensive to remedy. Nothing provides peace of mind like knowing for certain your home is in good working order.
Find any issues with the major components of your building. You can order a general inspection at any time to identify projects to tackle or assure yourself that everything’s as it should be.
Wind Mitigation Inspections
Review your building to determine how well it would hold up to heavy winds, something Southern Floridians know about. This inspection is often required if you apply for homeowner’s insurance.
Check your plumbing, electrical, HVAC and roof systems, which are the most common to fail, especially in older houses. The inspection report details the condition and age of these systems.
Third-Party Termite Inspections
Make sure your building isn’t infested. While a home inspector knows to look for evidence, a third-party expert is often called in to determine for sure if you have an infestation.
Air Quality Testing
Look for evidence of mold and areas of unusual humidity. Indoor air quality is often affected by chemicals used in the home, and pollution has been known to concentrate indoors.
Chinese Drywall Inspections
Assure yourself that your drywall isn’t tainted. Inferior Chinese drywall was used extensively from 2002–07. If your home was built during this period, an inspection determines your drywall source.
Pool and Spa Inspections
Keep your built-in or above-ground pools and spas safe and leak-free. These features often add value to a home, but if there are hidden issues, they can cost a great deal to repair.
