Cost of Home Inspections in Florida
Affordable Home Inspections – “Do not let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection or in the selection of your home inspector. The sense of security and knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspection is not necessarily a bargain.

Wind Mitigations

This is a picture of a roof to wall connection as described on the OIR 1802 the form used for Wind Mitigation Surveys. When you pay for a Florida Wind Mitigation Survey you deserve to have the truth of how your home was built. Knowledge is power and with that now you know what you may do to improve the home if possible. This is what some people might call a hurricane strap. It does in fact appear to wrap over the top. It does not after further inspection. In fact according to the form this type of “strap” only qualifies as a clip connection which is the second to lowest form. It is very rusty or corroded. In order to qualify for the next level it must wrap over the top and least three nails and be free of corrosion. If it does wrap over the top and is a strap it must have at least two nails on one side and one on the other. It can be very confusing for most people. If you have any questions feel free to contact Wayne Collier Home Inspections, we can help you.

Dirty Air Handler

This photo reveals a massive Rats nest in an air handler closet. The home had been empty for some time. No air filter present with the bottom of closet full of dirt and debris. This causes dirt, dust and rat feces to be sucked in through the air system creating a health hazard. Proper remediation was recommended.

Chimney Damage

Looking at this Chimney from the ground the damage is not visible. It is a fairly steep roof but still walkable.
The picture reveals what we saw and reported to the potential buyer. The concrete cap was also damaged revealing a deep crevice that has allowed moisture intrusion deep into the chimney as well as the structure of the home. Another find brought to you by Wayne Collier Home Inspections.
