Your home and your family are unique, and both deserve more than the standard home inspection.
Different home inspection packages, for different homes.
We’ve learned a thing or two over the past 40 years of building and inspecting homes and we’ve seen many changes in building materials and construction practices. These changes require a unique approach in how we inspect your home.
The one price, one inspection standard, for all homes simply does not protect you.
New, inexperienced, home inspectors, fail to grasp this fact. The one price, all homes are equal, is the prevailing business model by volume, multi-inspector, inspection firms. You see, it makes quoting your inspection easy. You get the same inspection standard on every home regardless of the age/style or condition.
What kind of protection are you looking for from the home inspector?
The problem is, you don’t know and you don’t understand the laws/standards home inspectors work under. The state standards for a home inspection do not distinguish how the inspector treats homes of differing conditions, age or style; and that makes a big difference in how much protection you receive from the inspection.
That is why we have developed our home inspection packages based on age/style.
We understand the significant differences and concerns between newer built homes and homes of different time periods. The construction practices, methods and materials are different. Older homes have generally been up- dated (and not always correctly). While we can build an inspection protocol to cover most anything you need, consider our carefully designed recommended packages below.
If you don’t use us, use this information to make sure you are protected from the one you do choose – ask them what they will do differently on your unique home.
Recommended Home Inspection Packages
What is included in our Jacksonville home inspection or Orlando home inspection?
We offer three very distinct home inspection packages. Each package is designed to fit the age/condition/style of the home and your risk level. We encourage you to evaluate each package and to contact us with any questions. We want you to get the inspection you need.

360 Home Inspection –
Homes built 1987 – 2005
A complete review of all primary components to include roof, plumbing, electrical, structure, appliances, HVAC, garage and attic. We include thermal imaging of interior ceilings/walls to spot hidden moisture and to test the balance of the AC system. Inspection includes a 90 Day Warranty on structure, water/sewer piping, electrical, appliances, our MoldSafe guarantee, and a 5 Year Roof Protection Plan (small deductible applies to Roof Plan).
Homes built between 1987 and 2006 encompass several different code changes and construction practices. T-111 siding, cheap stone veneer, and numerous class action suits on composite siding developed during this time frame. This period also included Chinese drywall and problem stucco as well as improperly wrapped door/window openings. Moisture, termites, mold and unhealthy air are by-products of this era.
It is interesting to note, this is the same period where allergists became the fastest growth specialty in medicine. Do you see a correlation? Many do.
Wood Destroying Organisms/Termite inspection
Wind Mitigation report
A comprehensive due diligence, pre-purchase, inspection for a real estate purchase. Includes 90 Day warranties for your protection.
Our comprehensive 360 Home Inspection, including our 90 Day Warranties starts at $375 for a 1-story, slab home, up to 2500 gross sf. Larger and two-story homes priced accordingly.
While we include valuable 90 Day Warranties for your protection, most home inspectors do not. If your other choice does not, ask them why? Even more importantly, ask your Realtor why they are recommending a home inspector who does not offer a warranty! We can’t figure it out.

No inspection firm is more qualified or better equipped to inspect your home purchase. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a barely qualified home inspector! Compare our qualifications to theirs, make sure the inspector carries Errors & Omissions and Commercial Auto insurance. Ask the home inspector if they are qualified to make repair recommendations on structural issues or if they can assess a mold issue. By law, they cannot! We can and we do this for our clients every single day and generally at no extra fee! Get the information you need today. Everything you will need in one inspection firm.
before 1987 –
Our most comprehensive home inspection. This inspection is designed for any person who is concerned with healthy air, has significant allergies, pulmonary function issues, immune deficiencies or is concerned with a healthy home for children or elderly. If you suspect, or the Seller has disclosed, prior water/sewer damage, you need this added level of scrutiny/ testing. If the home had multiple pets or exotic pets, we can survey the home for hidden urine in walls/flooring. If the home was built before 1982, we can check for lead paint. If the home has old metal water supply piping, we can check for lead in the water (extremely important for children).
This package is highly recommended for homes on crawlspaces or for any home built before 1987
This package includes our 360 Home Inspection plus indoor air quality testing by a Licensed Mold Assessor and Council Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant by the Council of Engineering & Scientific Specialty Boards.
Wet or damp crawlspaces are perfect environments for bacteria/mold growth. Modern AC systems will draw this air into the home and promote odors and unhealthy air. Asbestos containing materials are common in floor tile, ceiling tile, insulation, pipe wrap and siding. Many older homes have been remodeled to include AC systems which may or may not have been properly designed. Mold/fungi is common from old leaks in roofs and plumbing. Hidden urine deposits harbor bacteria and produce odors.
Wood Destroying Organisms/ termite inspection
4 Point Insurance report for homes over 30 years old
Wind Mitigation report
Know, before you buy, if the home has indoor air quality issues.
Quoted upon request.
Do not confuse our HealthyHome™ inspection with other similar offerings from competing home inspectors. Many are not qualified to render an opinion in the State of Florida and they rely on a lab report to present their sample results. They are simply not qualified and you should understand the difference. Don’t waste your money on “mold testing” by a home inspector.
Wood Destroying Organism Inspection – Conducted by a Licensed Pest Control Operator
Every home should have a WDO/termite inspection.
Buyer’s should understand you are not protected simply because the Seller advises the home has a “termite bond”. Bonds come in many shapes and sizes and almost all of them only cover subterranean termites – specifically, Eastern Subterranean Termites. Bonds do not cover Drywood, Dampwood, Formosan, West Indian, beetles, carpenter bees or ants or wood destroying fungi. Your only protection is your independent Wood Destroying Organism Inspection. Never, use the pest control company who currently holds the service agreement on the home for your inspection – even if we have the contract!
We own 360PestControl, LLC and we provide independent WDO inspections to protect your purchase. Our services are available even if you do not hire us as your home inspector. Here is why you should consider us for your protection:

Often, realtors will say things like, “don’t worry, the home has been renovated or re-painted”. This is a misleading statement as generally the lead paint has simply been painted over. We offer a low fee, field test which will alert you to the presence of lead in the paint. It will not identify the level or quantity present but it will indicate if you should consider further testing.

Many buyers mistakenly believe the standard home inspection will provide detailed lists of all repairs or serve as a means to recover costs incurred to make repairs when components fail after closing. That is simply not true. The Florida Statute for a standard home inspection does not require, nor do you pay for, a detailed testing/list of all deficiencies. The standard home inspection is an overview of the primary systems – not each individual component.
