General Home Inspection
Whether you’re buying or selling a home, an inspection is crucial to the process. We will help identify any potential concerns, or give you peace of mind that your home has a clean bill of health. There are many things that only a trained eye may see, and a thorough inspection by a certified professional could be the difference between a dream home and a nightmare!
Nothing can send everyone back to the negotiating table like unexpected results from a home inspection. To prevent buyers from backing out last minute, consider having a pre-listing inspection performed. This will give you the knowledge you need to evaluate your home’s true condition and fix any issues before it hits the market.
Wind Mitigation Inspection
To limit wind damage in coastal areas, certain building techniques should be implemented. In Florida, insurance companies often offer credits and/or discounts to customers whose homes have improvements to reduce wind damage. To qualify, a wind mitigation inspection must be performed.
For older homes, insurance companies may require a 4-point inspection before issuing an insurance policy. These inspections focus on four main areas of interest: HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), electrical wiring and panels, plumbing connections and fixtures, and the roof.
Roof Certification Inspection
In the state of Florida, insurance companies may require a roof certification. This is to verify that the roof meets their standards for condition and quality. These inspections are typically requested on homes 25 years and older. Criteria for a roof certification include: no damaged or missing shingles, no visible evidence of leaking and at least 3 years remaining life.
New Construction Inspection
Building a new home can be extremely overwhelming. Having a trained, professional opinion regarding the quality of work and installation practices can be invaluable to ensuring that your dream home is perfect!
FREE Thermal Imaging
Oasis Home Inspections includes a thermal imaging scan at no extra charge with every home inspection. By using an infrared camera, we are able to detect many problems not revealed by visual inspection methods alone.
Thermal imaging recognizes heat signatures rather than light and can identify issues like heat loss, water intrusion, potential pest infestations, and electrical faults. This tool is invaluable in giving you the most comprehensive understanding of your property, which is why we offer free scans to all of our home inspection customers.
