About Us

Jacksonville Home Inspection Company

Commercial & Home Inspection Company serving Jacksonville, Orlando & Jax Beaches. ADA Inspections nationwide.

Thank you for your interest in our company and our services.  We are a privately held, family owned business.  We are SIC classified as a Veteran owned, small business.

A little more about us: we performed our first, fee paid, inspection in 1986 for the Resolution Trust Corporation during the S&L crisis.  We take great pride in being the most qualified and experienced building inspection firm in our market.  We are fully licensed and insured to provide any inspection you may need – pre-purchase, due diligence home/building inspection, WDO/termite, indoor air quality, water/lead testing, radon testing, code compliance, fire, safety, ADA, cost reserve schedules, repair/cost to cure estimates, asset verification, insurability/underwriting compliance inspections, cost replacement valuations, FHA 203K, weatherization, constructability reviews, new construction inspections, construction management and expert witness testimony…timely and professionally.

With us, you know who you are working with.  Unlike many web based firms, we do not subcontract your inspection to the lowest bidder.  If you hire us, we perform the inspection and we submit the report.  If you have questions, you speak directly to the inspector who assessed the building.

Our business philosophy is based upon one goal:  We treat your property as though it were our own investment.

We maintain TWIC security clearance from the Department of Homeland Security for access to sensitive areas such as ports, transportation terminals, DOE/DOD facilities, military bases, NASA and other listed sites.
