At Florida Home Inspections we know that for many people in southwest Florida, their condominium is their largest investment. Hidden faults, problems and issues can degrade the value of the condo and lower your investments value. If you live in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Englewood, North Port or elsewhere in southwest Florida, you should consider the benefits of having your condo inspected.
Having your condo inspected can save you costly repairs and renovations due to a number of potential hazards. Using our Thermal Imaging technology, we can detect problem areas in your condo before major damage occurs. This can mean protection from high winds, termites, and mold.
High winds can permeate your doors, windows, and roof causing moisture and debris to enter your condo. Southwest Floridians are especially subject to wind related damage from hurricanes and tropical storms. Thermal imaging can find the areas most susceptible to high winds allowing corrections to be made before a major catastrophe occurs. Having your condo inspected by a certified inspector can protect your investment and your family.
Wind Mitigation Inspection covers the following:
- Roof Covering and Date of installation
- Roof deck attachment – nails, screws or staples along with the size and spacing
- Roof to wall attachment- Nails, clips or straps
- Roof shape and gable end bracing
- Wall construction types- usually frame or block
- Secondary Water barriers- Self adhering polymer modified bitumen or foam
- Opening protection- Impact tested and approved products, not wind-resistant or pressure tested
Four Point Inspection
Insurance companies have been asking home owners to pay for this type of inspection if a home is exceeding 25 years old. The age requirement depends on the insurance agencies. While performing this type of inspection we look at 4 areas of the house.
4-point inspections focus on four main areas of your condo:
- HAVC (Heating, Ventalation, and Air Conditioning)
- Electrical wiring and panels
- Plumbing connections and fixtures
A licensed condo inspector will evaluate the working order and age of these systems to be recorded for the insurance companies. Any deficiencies will also be recorded and the client may be asked by the insurance company to replace any of the systems if deficient.
Having a four point inspection could potentially help save on insurance costs as well as maintain the safety of your condominium. Contact Florida Home Inspections today to find out more benefits of condo inspection.
