Home Inspection Packages

OUR RECOMMENDED INSPECTION PACKAGES are based on our knowledge of the Florida home (please read our paper in the Information Center to learn what you need to know about the age/style of your home).

The age of the home generally compliments construction styles, methodologies and materials common at the time. Modern building codes do not allow us to build the Florida “Cracker” home which withstood our environment.

Our homes are conditioned and every component of the home relies upon the proper performance of conditioned air. When the roof leaks, when we have moisture intrusion into wall cavities, improper stucco finishes and a host of other issues, our homes suffer. They develop mold, attract pests and termites, develop wood rot and in short, quickly become unhealthy dwellings.

Over the course of 38 years of building homes and conducting thousands of inspections, we have developed strong precursors of deficiencies we may find, simply based upon the age and type of home. We can customize any inspection and service most budgets.

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.

HealthyHome™ Inspection

This package includes everything included in our 360HomeInspection package, plus:

MoldCheck:

a $295 value

We will sample the home for the background presence of mold to identify the type/quantity present. A Licensed Mold Assessor will review the findings and provide a comprehensive report.  This information is valuable to anyone concerned with mold or for anyone who has asthma, allergies or pulmonary functions issues.  Note:  Don’t confuse our mold assessment with those offered by other home inspectors; they are generally not licensed for mold assessment.  They pull a couple of air samples and have them analyzed by a lab who will issue a lab report citing Elevated or Not Elevated only.  The home inspector cannot legally discuss the report or advise you of what it means.

LeadWater:

a $45 value

We will test the kitchen and bath sink fixtures for the presence of lead.  While lead is generally associated with homes built prior to 1986, often we find newer homes connected to older municipal supply systems which may have lead in the piping.

PestFree:
a $95 value

Your home will be inspected for infestation of general household pests such as cockroaches, spiders, mice, earwigs, silverfish, ants and other common invaders.  Aside from the potential expense involved in removing pests, insects present known health hazards especially to small children, the elderly or those with immune deficiencies.  Inspection conducted by 360PestControl, a licensed pest control operator.

Pricing starts at just $645, up to 2000sf under air, single story, slab

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:

The best report in the industry! Our proprietary software delivers the report in digital format with photographs of any issue we find. Which would you rather have – a high quality report which clearly identifies issues with photos or a hand written report you can barely read?

Skilled pest control technicians who are also licensed home inspectors – you can quickly see why our home inspector competitors don’t want 360PestControl conducting the WDO inspection! Well, we can’t help but look while we’re there!Uniformed inspectors, with thermal cameras, camera operated remote crawlers for crawlspaces, aerial drones for high/steep roofs, company vans, courteous office staff,fully insured and the best guarantee in the business!

Additional Services

We offer the following ancillary inspection services.  Please review these valuable services to take advantage of our discounted pricing if ordered with your home inspection.

Wind Mitigation
Add $75

If your home is over 14 years old, your insurance carrier will typically require an 1802 Wind Mitigation report. This report identifies the age/condition of the roof as well as any features which may provide a discount on your premium. Features such as wind rated window/door shutters, roof to wall attachments, nailing or newer roof coverings may reduce your premium expense.
Value: You will save a trip charge by ordering with the home inspection.


4 Point Report:

Add $50

Homes over 30 years old are typically required to have a 4 Point Report for insurance underwriting. This report documents the Roof, Electrical, Plumbing and HVAC system. The insurance carrier wants to know the age/condition and whether these components present a rating hazard.
Value: Required on homes over 30 years old. Save money by ordering with the home inspection.

Roof Certification:

$150 to $350

We provide independent roof assessments/certifications both for insurance purposes and as second opinions.
Pricing based on size and type of roof.


Final Walk:

Add $95
(a $150 value)

If you want to confirm repairs were properly made or confirm there were no hidden problems behind furnishings present in Seller occupied homes, we encourage you to have us re-inspect the home before closing. The final walk is limited to inspection of common repairs found in the original home inspection or to inspect areas which were covered with furnishings.
Value: Confirm repairs were properly completed and building permits were pulled, if applicable.
Value: Confirm there are no hidden issues which we could not observe at the original inspection.


SewerScope:

Add $275
We will inspect sewer lines with a remote camera for hidden damage or obstructions. Automatically extends your SewerGard protection from 90 days to 180 days of free coverage.
Value: Aged drainage lines, tree roots may have hidden issues not visible to an inspector.

ChimneyScope:

Add $150

We will scope the chimney chase/flue for hidden damage on wood burning units.
Value: Older chimneys/fireplaces should be thoroughly inspected for hidden damage.
Value: Chimney chases constructed of wood may have hidden moisture/mold.


HealthyHome®:

Add $295
(up to 2000sf)

Your home will be tested for the presence of hidden mold in the walls/floors/ceilings/air ducts. You will receive a comprehensive report issued by a Florida Licensed Mold Assessor.
Value: Homes may have hidden mold which may present a health risk. If you believe this home has ever had water damage or if the home is on a crawlspace, we recommend this test.


Formaldehyde

Add $95
(up to 2 rooms)
Many of our customers are concerned with excessive levels of formaldehyde in wood flooring. We offer in home testing meeting all national standards for analysis.


LeadPaint:

Add $195
(up to 1500sf)

FHA/VA/HUD/EPA/WHO and the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation all recommend you have the home tested for the presence of lead paint in any home built prior to 1978. Lead paint presentsa known health risk, especially to children under six years old. Your realtor makes you sign a leadawareness statement and is required to issue a Lead Paint Awareness pamphlet to you if the home was built prior to 1978. Most realtors downplay the importance but you should not arbitrarily dismiss this.
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.


LeadWater:

Add $45
(up to 3 fixtures)

Generally, every home built prior to 1986 has the potential for lead plumbing piping or lead in solder. Further,many fixtures contain lead. Lead in water is especially hazardous to infants and children under six. Until 2014, the EPA allowed up to 8% of lead but the ruling has now been reduced to just 0.25%. Recent examples of lead in water causing health defects in children is the Flint, Michigan study. While many of the homes in Flint were newer than 1986, the water supply piping owned by the municipality were older and contained lead. Many water fixtures today are built in China or Mexico and both countries are known to have lax standards and oversight. We urge you to have the water tested for lead, especially if you have small children. We offer a low fee field test which will alert you to the presence of lead which may indicate the need for additional testing.

WDO/Termite:

Add $125
(up to 2000sf, slab)
Add $300
(with crawlspace)

Every home, including those sold with a “termite bond” should have an inspection for Wood Destroying Organisms (fungi and termites). Often, the realtor mistakenly advises “you do not need this” as the home has a current “bond”. Unfortunately, most realtors do not have an accurate understanding of termite guarantees. First, there is no such thing as a “termite bond”. Only a licensed surety company can issue a bond and we are not aware of any surety who issues termite bonds. Pest control companies issue “guarantees” and they cannot offer “bonds” or “warranties”. A termite guarantee is no different than a “roof guarantee” or any tradesman guarantee for the work. It is not a bond, a warranty or insurance. The pest control company and its insurance company promise to retreat or repair future damage caused by a specific termite should it occur. Most guarantees only cover damage related to Eastern subterranean termites (reticulitermes flavipes). The guarantee generally does not cover wood destroying beetles, drywood termites or wood decaying fungi. Unless you know and understand all fungi and termites are covered, you should order a WDO inspection from an independent source. Further, most realtors do not understand that the transferrable guarantee requires you to accept the program with the caveat that “old or existing” damage is not covered. Caveat emptor (buyer beware).

90 DayTermite:

Add $45
(up to 2,000sf, slab)

With our WDO inspection, eligible homes may order short term, gap protection to protect you against the infestation of new termite activity. This plan covers you against all termites. Homes sold with termite guarantees may not protect you from infestation or damage caused by drywood or Formosan termites. Don’t be fooled into thinking you are covered. Treatment for termites can cost thousands of dollars and our plan covers you up to $2500. This is one of the best protection plans you will ever find.

Crawlspace:

Add $175
(up to 1500sf)
Included
with
WDO Inspection

Many older homes have crawlspaces which contain all kinds of historical information on the home. We find evidence of prior flooding, drainage issues, deteriorated plumbing, asbestos, missing insulation, wood decay, insect damage, mold, fungi, animals, environmental hazards such as paint/solvents, buried tanks, structural damage to columns, piers, joists and footers and a host of issues which are often expensive to repair. We take crawlspace inspections seriously and we enter every crawl possible. If there is simply limited accessibility, we will utilize remote camera operated robot crawlers. A proper crawlspace inspection takes time and effort. If your home has a crawlspace, you should want it properly inspected by an inspector who is experienced in foundations and home construction as well as a licensed pest inspector. You need both in a crawl.

EIFS/Stucco

From $475

We conduct certified assessments of Exterior Insulated Finish Systems (EIFS), Stucco, Stone/Brick Veneer, Synthetic stucco and other wall cladding systems. Inspections are conducted by a Certified General Contractor and a Certified EIFS/Stucco Inspector with over 38 years of building experience.

Pool Inspection:

Add $75

We offer basic inspections of pools/spas and associated equipment to document visual deficiencies and functionality of equipment. This is a limited inspection intended for general reference only. While our inspectors are Certified Pool Operators by the National Pool and Spa Association, we are not pool service contractors. Many modern pool control systems require factory training to properly test/evaluate and we do not have that training or certification. We generally recommend you have the pool/spa inspected by a local, factory trained, technician.A complete inspection of a pool system would generally take 45 minutes to over an hour and cost around $150. You should understand our inspection is limited and is offered as a general reference only. We do not take any responsibility for wiring or the safety of underwater light features. See more here.

Lawn Sprinklers:

Add $75

We will conduct a limited inspection of the lawn sprinkler system to document the number of zones and verifythe system is functional. We do not test valves, underground piping or assume any responsibility for leakage or proper coverage. We generally recommend you have the sprinkler system inspected by a local irrigation/lawn sprinkler service company. You should understand most sprinkler systems need some level of repair or calibration. We do not offer any warranty or guarantee with a sprinkler inspection. It is intended for general reference only. A proper sprinkler inspection will take one to two hours depending on size and cost between $125 and $200. We do not devote that level of time or effort to the mostly visual inspection. Don’t be fooled by promises by home inspectors they include the sprinkler system. If they allow 2 hours for the inspection and they include the sprinkler system, what part of the home or sprinkler system did they not check? Maybe they are just lying to you.


Complete Chimney

Add $85

We will conduct a limited inspection of the interior of the chase and flue using a borescope camera. Recommended for homes with heavily used fireplaces or chimneys over 15 years old.

BigAssHomeWarranty:

From $395

We are authorized dealers for Residential Warranty Services and we are pleased to offer the best home warranty of any plan on the market. With our 360HomeInspection, you will get full protection on all major components in the home, plus:

  • 18 months of coverage for the price of 12 months – six free months of coverage

  • No pre-existing conditions coverage

We know, the name, BigAssHomeWarranty may be a little shocking to some but when we researched huge, gargantuan, humongous, bigger and over-the-top, we kept coming up with Big Ass. When we asked friends and associates what they thought of the plan, the #1 response we heard was “that’s a big ass plan”.

Compare plans and we think you will agree,
“that’s a big ass home warranty plan”
Your assets are covered.
