- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common inspections are full home inspections, Wind Mitigation Inspections and Swimming Pool Inspections. Today when buying a home, insurance companies are requesting a Wind Mitigation Inspection. and if the home is older than 30 years, they are also requesting a 4 Point Inspection. Check with your insurance agent and ask what types of inspections will be required.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Generally you do not get a chance to meet with your inspector prior to the inspection. It is for this reason, you as a customer must ask the right questions when speaking to a home inspection company for the first time. Here are some very important questions: 1. Are you licensed and insured with the state of Florida and what is your license number? Home inspectors are required to show you their Florida State license and provide a list of limitations (usually in the form of a pre-inspection agreement) prior to starting a home inspection. 2. What education process did the home inspector go through? Many times before the state licensing law went into effect last year, people became home inspectors with no formal home inspection education and the new law grandfathered in home inspection companies who were in business 2 years prior to the new law. 3, How long will the inspection take? Generally a home inspection should take from 3 to 4 hours for an average sized home. Beware of inspectors who say they can do it in a shorter time. 4. Will the inspector provide references? 5. Will the inspector provide a simple checklist report or a narrative report with photos explaining each issue and will the report be delivered the same day? 6. How long has the inspector been in business?
