Mold Inspection

This is an initial step to determining if a home has a mold problem. The inspector will perform a visual examination of all accessible areas of the property. We enter the attic to determine if there is any evidence of water penetration, past or present. Air conditioning/heating system and duct work is inspected. Walls are also tested for excess moisture. Bathrooms and all visible plumbing located in the property, will be inspected for leaks. After the home or business has been thoroughly inspected up to four air and/or surface samples will be collected and sent to a laboratory for analysis. A computer generated report will be available within a 2 working days with the results.

If the report analysis reveals elevated mold reading the next step is consultation with a Certified Industrial Hygienist for remediation.

Price will vary depending on the total structure square footage of the property.

Termite/Wood Destroying Organisms Inspection

A visual Inspection of accessible areas for active or evidence of past infestation of wood destroying insects to include termites or any wood destroying organism by a state licensed inspector.

New Construction/Pre-Closing Inspection

Completed during the construction process, this type of inspection is a visual examination of all accessible areas of a residential house by a qualified professional home inspector, which is designed to identify observed material defects in the major component groups. These inspections are performed in phases, with reports issued at the completion of each inspection phase. The client is encouraged to attend each phase of the inspection. Typically three phase inspections are performed:

  1. Footer/Foundation/Drainage Inspection
  2. Mechanical Rough-in Inspection and Pre-Drywall
  3. Final phase is a home inspection that includes: Property and Site, Exterior and Garage, Roof and Attic, Heating/Cooling Systems, Plumbing Systems, Electrical Systems, Bathrooms and Fixtures, Kitchen and Appliances, and All Living Spaces.

Upon completion of the inspection, a computerized Inspection Report with digital pictures of defects is printed on-site, and inserted into the Pillar To Post inspection report binder.

Pool and Spa Inspection

We evaluate the condition of all accessible pool and spa components. We identify items that need repair to make the pool operational, safe and reasonable to maintain. We also note the condition of the fence, gates, walkway, pool perimeter, slide, diving board, deck, rails, coping, lighting, structure, and other items of possible concern. Digital photos are taken to assist us in composing the inspection report as well as recommendations for maintenance and repairs.

Re-Inspection

A visual examination of areas to be determined by the client designed to evaluate whether work requested in a contract addendum has been completed in a satisfactory manner. A copy of the contract addendum and the client, or the clients, representative must be present during the re-inspection. A re-inspection report will be issued at the conclusion of the re-inspection.

Price will vary depending on the total structure square footage of the property.

Radon Testing

Radon Gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends radon testing as a way of measuring the risk or level of exposure to radon.

Radon is radioactive gas that seeps through invisible cracks or crevices in homes or buildings. Almost all soils have traces of radium. Most radon comes into the building from the soil or rock beneath it, which can become trapped and concentrated inside the house. More recent developments in housing construction have created radon problems due solely to radon released by building materials. Because of this phenomenon, Floridians have found elevated radon levels through all floors of high rise multi-family buildings.

Our testing is performed using EPA protocol for homes sellers and buyers by a Florida Certified Radon Technician. Our tests are analyzed by an independent third party lab for analysis and reporting.

Sewer Scans

A Sewer Scan is an inspection of the waste drain pipes. A Sewer Scan is recommended on any new home purchase you are considering, even new homes can have problems in their sewer lateral / waste drain pipes. The Sewer Scan provides a good indication of the overall condition of the pipes including, cracks, clogs, root damage and standing water.

A technician accesses the main sewer cleanout hole or vent stacks on the roof and feeds a fiber-optic camera through the sewer line that runs from the house to the city sewer at the street or septic tank. The main sewer line from the home to the city or private connection is the responsibility of the home owner and it is best you identify if any problems exist prior to closing escrow.

Wind Mitigation Insurance Inspection

A Wind Mitigation Inspection is a valuable inspection service that may significantly reduce your windstorm insurance. Wind Insurance discounts are available for building features that reduce damage during high wind events.

The Wind Mitigation discounts are justified because stronger, more wind-resistive structures have lower windstorm losses, meaning reduced costs to insurance companies. Most existing structures actually do have one or more wind-resistive construction features and may qualify for some significant Wind Mitigation insurance discounts.

Did you know that the State of Florida requires insurance companies to offer reduced rates for certain Wind Mitigation features?

We will document the Wind Mitigation features present in your home and produce a Wind Mitigation Certificate for you to use in order to receive your wind mitigation credits on your Wind Insurance policy.

The Wind Mitigation Inspection must be performed using the Uniform Mitigation Verification Report Form (OIR-B1-1802) – This is the form developed by the Office of Insurance Regulation and may only be completed by a Certified Wind Mitigation Inspector.

Price will vary depending on the total structure square footage of the property.

4-Point Insurance Inspection

4-point insurance inspections are requested by insurance companies when obtaining a new homeowners insurance or renewing an existing policy on homes usually over 25 years old. The Inspection consists of a visual survey of the following four primary components:

  • Heat, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Plumbing Inspection
  • Electrical Inspection
  • Roof Inspection

If you are buying a property it would be prudent to determine whether or not your insurance company is going to require this report as a condition of obtaining insurance on the property. If so, contact Pillar To Post Home Inspection to schedule your 4-point insurance inspection. Our report is usually completed and emailed to the client and Insurance Company within 24 hours.
