A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of the property, designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components. All reports are delivered with many digital photos and illustrations to make the report easy to read and understand.
Simply put, a wind mitigation inspection (also called a windstorm mitigation inspection) is where a certified inspector looks over a property for specific weather-withstanding features. These will include features such as door/window covering, roof to house attachment, and how your roof is sealed to prevent water from entering. Though a wind mitigation inspection is not required in order to purchase home insurance, a qualified report can result in substantial savings.
A roof inspection or a roof certificate is a written “opinion” regarding the condition of a roof. We check for presence and/or condition of roof material, gutters/downspouts, flashing, repairs, layers of shingles, and general installation practices.
JAY – LICENSED HOME INSPECTOR
Hi! I’m Jay. I truly enjoy doing home inspections and enabling you to make an informed decision during your home buying process. My years of construction background in renovating residential properties affords me a unique advantage in noticing home construction methods and defects. Additionally, from owning and managing multiple rental properties and primary residences, I am sensitive to the concerns and emotions which arise in a home buyer before purchasing a home. Allow me to provide you with an honest, thorough report. I will be with you throughout the home-buying process, taking the time to patiently respond to all your questions and needs.

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.
The standard home inspector’s report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value. It is not a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need major repair or replacement.
Typically, a home inspector is contacted immediately after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. Before you sign, be sure there is an inspection clause in the sales contract, making your final purchase obligation contingent on the findings of a professional home inspection. This clause should specify the terms and conditions to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.
Receiving a clear, easy to read home inspection report is crucial when buying a home. This report allows you to identify the important, sometimes hidden, weaknesses of the property and to decide what to do with each item needing attention.
Your report will be user friendly, easy to read and understand. All reports come with dozens of digital pictures taken during the inspection and illustrations explaining each concern.
You will appreciate choosing this inspection report compared to many of the outdated, text-heavy reports currently used by most home inspectors.
Very knowledgeable in all areas of home inspections. I’ll use them again.
I was very pleased by the professionalism displayed and the very thorough report I received. I got a lot of crucial information about my house that I was not even aware of and this will save me a major hassle in the future. Definitely would recommend them to everyone!

Jay was fantastic! He responded within minutes, and we had inspection the next day. Did not have to wait weeks. He was honest and through. Thank you!
The inspector was very thorough in his evaluation of what needed to be done. His report was very detailed. He was pivotal in determining the scope of repairs that needed to be completed and even referred a company that could help us assess what we would need to have everything functioning again.
