Service Description

Electrical System -  The type of the wiring in the home. The brand of the electrical panel. The condition of the homes electrical system. Heating and Cooling - Is there central heat and air in the home? The age and condition of the system. Are there signs of leaking? Plumbing System -    Type of supply and drain lines found in the home (copper, CPVC, galvanized, lead, polybutelene, etc. Is there evidence of current leaks?  The age of the hot water heater. Here is what a Wind Mitigation inspection looks at: Building code: The first question on all Florida mitigation inspections forms asks whether your home was built in compliance with the Florida Building Code 2001 or later or South Florida Building Code 94. Roof covering: This question asks about the type of roof coverings your home has – that is, the material your roof is made of. If your roof has been replaced recently, provide the permit you had for the construction; it’ll help the inspector accurately assess your roof. The inspector will also determine whether your roof coverings are approved by Florida building codes at the time of installation. Roof-deck attachment: This question determines how well your roof deck is secured to the truss/rafter and the strength of the attachment. The inspector will even look at the length of the nails that attach the roof sheathing to the roof truss / rafter – the longer the nails (8d are the longest) and the closer they are together (6 inches is preferred), the better. Roof-to-wall attachment: This indicates how well your roof is attached to the walls of your home. Roof geometry: This is the shape of your roof and it has a big impact on how well your home withstands strong winds. The inspection form offers three roof shapes: hip roof, flat roof, and other. Hip roofs slope down on all sides and help resist clashes with hurricane winds. Secondary water resistance: This part of the inspection determines if your home has a protective layer under the primary layer of the roof. The inspection form will note whether your roof has SWR or not. Opening protection: The final part of the wind mitigation inspection form considers “glazed openings” (i.e., openings with windows or glass) and “non-glazed openings” (e.g., entry doors and garage doors) and how impact resistant they are.
