My parents referred us to Nate and we are so glad that they did! Nate was great to work with and quick to respond. The inspection report was returned on the same day and was extremely thorough with pictures, notes and tips as well. Even though we were purchasing a new construction home, we wanted to have an outside inspection and we are so relieved that we did! Nate found a gas leak, microwave not working, some windows not properly sealed and many other things that we wouldn't have noticed. Thank goodness we decided to have him come out and that he found that gas leak! His findings and suggestions made us feel more confident in closing on our new home. Would highly recommend to family, friends and anyone that needs someone they can trust to do a great inspection. Thank you, Nate!

Components We Cover in a Home Inspection in Sarasota

Inspector working on roof

Roofing System

The roof represents a major component of your home and is also one of the most expensive to replace. Our roof investigation process meticulously scrutinizes the roof construction, shingle/tile condition, flashing, gutters, and downspouts, among other elements. We aim to identify any potential damage, imminent leaks, or wear and tear that, if overlooked, might lead to significant repair expenses in the future.

Man with Wall paints

Exterior Elements

While assessing the exterior of the home, our focus is on various elements such as siding, trim, eaves, soffits, fascia, exterior doorways, and walkways. We also check for any signs of deterioration in paint and other exterior surfaces that could affect the home’s resilience to weather or further lead to issues of moisture intrusion.

Home ventilation system

Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems

Our all-encompassing inspection of the HVAC components includes a detailed review of air handlers, furnaces, heat pumps, air conditioning units, thermostats, ductwork, vents, filters, and more. This ensures that all essential HVAC systems function optimally, providing comfortable indoor air quality and efficient temperature control.

Home Inspector checking home appliances

Plumbing Systems

Here, we conduct a methodical analysis of the water supply and drainage systems and fixtures like faucets, showers, tubs, toilets, and water heaters. Additionally, shut-off valves, supply pipes, and drain pipes are inspected for leaks, corrosion, or blockages that could potentially lead to severe system malfunctions in the future.

Man inspecting home electrical system

Electrical Systems Check

The inspection process related to electrical systems involves a detailed assessment of the electrical service panel, interior and exterior outlets, wiring, breakers, grounding, electrical boxes, and fixtures. We aim to identify any potential safety risks, inadequate amperage, or code violations that pose a threat to the occupants and require the attention of a licensed electrician.

Modern room with furniture

Built-In Appliances

Our inspection does not stop at systems alone. We also run exhaustive tests on built-in appliances including refrigerators, stoves/ovens, dishwashers, garbage disposals, washing machines, dryers, and more. We ensure these costly devices are functioning smoothly, thus offering excellent reliability for the homeowners.

Additionally, our home inspections come with free thermal scans. We use advanced cameras to find hidden problems that you can’t see normally. These hidden issues could be dangerous to your entire family. Our detailed process is meant to give you peace of mind if you’re thinking about buying a home.
