We are a family-owned business run by and employing retired Firefighter/Paramedics and US Coast Guard employees. With our years of experience in the fire service as firefighters and fire inspectors we are thoroughly trained on building construction. We believe in the latest and advanced technology in the home inspection field. Along with our inspections we also offer a safety inspection as part of the home inspection package. We are members of the Florida Association of Building Inspectors, Inc. (FABI) and InterNACHI. We use state of the art technology including thermal imaging inferred cameras, formaldehyde and moisture detection devices, and high definition drone mounted cameras so that we can detect what the naked eye can not. We stay up to date with the information and technology in our field. Other inspectors don't offer this new technology, however West Coast Home Inspections offers it at no extra cost. We can detect leaks in the walls, moisture, bad or dangerous wiring, and poor insulation areas including clogged or broken pipes behind walls. We also use our high definition flying cameras to capture pictures of the roof and aerial views of the property. Although not required by inspectors to walk on roofs, we feel it necessary to assure and satisfy our clients. Our HD flying cameras solve that problem with accurate pictures that most inspectors will miss on a visual inspection.

    Accurate Home Inspections of America, LLC

    (3 reviews)

    Why Choose Accurate Home Inspections of America, LLC? Time: A thorough Home Inspection takes time. Our inspections usually take 3-4 hours (...or more) depending on the size, construction and age. High end homes of 4000 square feet and more may take the better part of a day. Thoroughness: Since we're spending the most time on your inspection, we're going to look at things and go places that other inspectors may not. Assuming that it's safe, we go up onto roofs, go into the attic and into crawl spaces. Detail: We give you a comprehensive report with detailed descriptions and photos the same day as the inspection. We also include recommendations on what steps are required to resolve a specific issue. What's Included In The Inspection? A home inspection is a visual evaluation of the major systems in the house including structure, roof, exterior, heating/cooling, plumbing, electrical and the interior. As long as it's safe and accessible we'll walk on roofs, enter attics and crawl spaces, remove access panels and operate equipment. We'll look at every room in the house using the Standards of Practice of the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors(InterNACHI). We also perform Chinese Drywall Screening which is a detailed non-intrusive visual inspection protocol to identify the presence of copper and metal corrosion in the home which is associated with tainted drywall and conforms to the "Threshold Inspection" of the CPSC "Interim Guidance - Identification of Homes with Corrosion from Problem Drywall as of March 18, 2011". Also, as a Client of Accurate Home Inspections of America, LLC, you may contact us at any time if you have questions about anything related to the condition of your home, or home of a friend, relative, or business associate. Finally, you are enrolled in our Referral Rewards Program where you can earn back the cost of your inspection and more! FAQ Does A Brand New House Need An Inspection? Having inspected numerous new homes, we have found that all new homes have defects of one kind or another, regardless of the quality of construction or the integrity of the builder. This is because human imperfection prevents anything as large and as complex as a home from being constructed flawlessly. A commonly held fallacy is that all construction defects will be discovered by municipal building inspectors. This is incorrect, not because of professional shortcomings on the part of those inspectors, but the purpose, scope, time allotment and procedures for municipal inspections are not the same as for home inspections. Municipal inspectors inspect primarily for code compliance, not for quality of workmanship. They can cite a builder for improper structural framing or for non-compliant drain connections, but a poorly fitted door, an uneven tile counter top and slipshod finish work are not included in the list of concerns. Municipal inspectors rarely inspect an attic or a crawl space. They come to the job site with a clipboard and a code book, not with a ladder and overalls. Construction defects in such areas can escape discovery. Municipal inspectors typically inspect a roof from the ground or possibly from the builder's ladder. From these perspectives, roof defects are not always apparent. And final inspections are performed before the utilities are turned on, so municipal inspectors cannot determine if or how well the appliances and fixtures truly work. They don't test outlets for ground and polarity because this can be done only after the power supply is turned on. Nor, without power, can they test the performance of GFCI or AFCI safety breakers. The lack of utilities also prevents the testing of plumbing fixtures such as sinks, showers, tubs and dishwashers, and of gas fixtures such as furnaces, fireplaces and water heaters. When buying a new construction home, you should not forego the benefits of a thorough home inspection. Do you perform swimming pool/spa inspections? Yes. Just as a home inspection informs you about the condition of the home you are interested in purchasing, a pool inspection informs you about the condition of the pool. Most home inspectors do not offer a pool inspection, as this requires specialized skills. Some pool service companies may offer inspections, but as this is not the focus of their business, they are unlikely to have highly trained and experienced staff solely dedicated to this purpose. We are a state certified Commercial Pool Operator. How Much Does A Home Inspection Cost? The cost of a home inspection is a small fraction of the cost of the home and is priceless in terms of delivering peace of mind! A minimum fee will cover smaller homes that are fairly new. Condominium inspection fees can be slightly lower. Fees are higher for larger homes and older homes because they take longer to inspect. May I Attend The Inspection? Yes. We invite you to come along on the inspection to get the most benefit. By being present at the inspection we can familiarize you with the home and explain things to you as we move through the house. Be suspicious of any inspector who doesn't want you along during the inspection. When Should I Call To Schedule The Inspection? As soon as possible after you have a signed purchase contract. Make sure that your purchase contract has plenty of time for you to get repair estimates for major problems that may show up during the inspection. Remember, the inspection can take 3 to 4 hours to complete on an average sized home and the untilies must be turned on for the duration of the inspection. For newly constructed homes, schedule the inspection a few days before your walk-through with the builder so that you'll have our written report in your hands during the walk-through. You should schedule warranty inspections at least a month before your warranty expires. How Do I Prepare For The Inspection? It's the seller's responsibility to get the house ready for the inspection. The seller should: •Have all utilities turned on (water, electric and gas). •Have all gas appliances ready to run with pilot lights turned on. •Clear access to areas like attics, crawl spaces, electric panels, water heaters and furnaces. •Unlock areas such as storage closets, fence gates, electric panels, pool equipment and crawl space hatches. •Remove pets from the property, or secure them so they are not free to roam. To help you get the most benefit from the inspection you should leave the kids at home, you won't be able to pay attention to them and the inspection at the same time. For the same reason, if you have family members or friends who would like to see the house you should arrange a visit for another time. When Will The Report Be Ready? We provide the Inspection Report the same day as the inspection via a password protected secure web link or e-mail or fax. It is your choice on the method of delivery. What If The Inspection Reveals Problems? We may find things that weren't expected. No house is perfect, not even new construction. The report is not a seller's "Must-Fix" list; it's simply an impartial report of the homes condition giving you clear direction for what should be done about each problem. Every situation is different; it's up to you and your real estate agent to decide how to proceed after the inspection. Are There Limitations To The Inspection? Yes. We can't see through walls or predict the future! A home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes and it's not an evaluation for any biological, geological or environmental hazards. See the inspection agreement and the InterNACHI Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of an inspection. Do You Offer A Guarantee? We guarantee the Home Inspection will be performed within 48 hours of your call, if requested in the advent of a tight closing or urgent need. Also, if you are not satisfied with the way the inspection is performed, you do not pay. Your Home Inspection will also include InterNACHI’s Buy Your Home Back Guarantee. Will I Perform or Manage Any Repair Work? No. We are bound by a strict code of ethics and we do not perform repairs on any home we inspect and it is illegal under the Florida State Licensing for Home Inspectors to perform repairs. Are You Licensed? A recently passed bill requires all home inspectors to be licensed as of July, 2011. Hiring a licensed professionally trained and experienced Home Inspection company is the best way to ensure the quality of your inspection. We are Florida State Licensed - License# HI2244 Are You Certified? Yes. However, a certification is only as good as the organization that issues it. Recently, some "organizations" have entered the lucrative business of handing out a certification to anyone who will send them a check, regardless of actual qualifications. Although appearing to be non-profit professional societies, they're actually for-profit companies. They are highly deceptive. If someone tells you that they're certified, be sure to check up on the organization that's doing the certification. We have been trained and certified through the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) which meets or exceeds the requirements of InterNACHI, ASHI, NAHI, CREIA, TREC and other professional organizations. I'm also certified and a full member of InterNACHI; the largest and most respected professional society in the industry. What If I Have Questions Later? As a Client of Accurate Home Inspections of America, LLC, you may contact us at any time if you have questions about anything related to the condition of your home, or home of a friend, relative, or business associate. To that end, you also are automatically eligible for our Referral Rewards Program. The program is quite simple and allows you to earn your complete property inspection fee back. But you don't have to stop there. You can keep on earning money each time you refer someone to us for a property inspection. It gives me great satisfaction and pride knowing I am helping a client make the best decision on one of their most important and expensive purchases in their lifetime.

    My work stands out because I have passion for what I do and the needs of my clients. I am one of the few inspectors out there that is a Florida Licensed Home Inspector and a Florida Licensed Mold Assessor. I am also a Citizens Certified Advanced Wind Mitigation Inspector and have an EPA certification in air conditioning. I am also a trained indoor environmentalist who has experience with VOC's which are Volital Organic Compounds. These are chemicals in your home that are put off by different building materials. Some people are allergic to these compounds and living unhealthy lives in their homes. I am able to bring in equipment to test for these VOC's. I have had results come back that showed a client was having problems because of the chemical that was used to clean is carpeting. This can change someones life. We are a one stop shop at Jacob Mermin Inspections which saves my clients time, money, and aggravation. I like meeting people. I believe if you do the right thing for the folks you will be blessed. I like doing a home inspection and letting people know that their future dream home is ok and they should proceed with the purchase. I also like to find the bad things that are not visible so that they do get themselves Involved with a money pit. I like to help people and make there lives better. I can't count all the times I have been called into a family's home to do an IAQ Inspection because kids are always sick. I like finding the mold or VOC' s that are making their family sick, especially the kids. It is a wonderful feeling to be a family's hero. I meet great people every day. There are so many bad business people out there going out of there way to take money from them. I can't work for free, but making money is not my number one priority. I have found if you do everything possible to help people the money part will take care of its self. I believe If I do business this way I will be truly blessed in many ways, and I have been for more than 25 years. When you are with your clients show them your passion about what you are doing and that you care more about them than the money you will receive. If you do this you will be successfully in many different ways.

West Coast Home Inspection

(25 reviews)

West Coast Home Inspections uses state-of-the-art equipment and strives to keep up-to-date and informed of the technological advances in the field. They aim to assure and satisfy clients at no extra cost.

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting and talking to new people. It's a pleasure to see the different types and designs of new construction. I feel like I have done my job when I find something that needs repair or is unsafe. My favorite part is using all the gadgets and new technology. Some home inspectors are curious about my thermal camera, report design, and drone. I offer them a job instead of giving answers.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

With the training and education I got, it just made sense to use it and not waste the knowledge after my years of experience in the fire service.

    Shasta A.

    Keith met with us the next day after I submitted the Thumbtack request. Once we signed the contract, roof replacement was started within the week. Since a large roof took a day and a half to complete. Very pleased with the new roof. All the crew was professional. Keith and Bobby filed the insurance claims for us and dealt with the insurance company's follow ups. We would definitely recommend Americas Best and Keith to friends and family.
