Learn more about working with our team.

What areas do you service?

We focus on Central Florida. That includes: Brevard, Citrus, Volusia, Hernando, Hillsborough, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Pasco, Polk, Seminole, and Sumter.

How much does an inspection cost?

Price is based on the type of inspection, scope of investigation and the size of your community. We schedule an onsite visit to give an accurate price in our proposal before conducting the inspection.

How quickly can you perform the inspection? How long does the process take?

Once the contract is signed, we can usually start the inspection within two weeks. Depending on the size and scope, we may require multiple visits to the community. After all onsite visits are complete, we will provide the final inspection report within two to four weeks.

What information do I need to provide for you to complete the inspection?

We provide a questionnaire to help gather the necessary information about your community. Our team also schedules interviews with the community association manager and Board of Directors to discuss any pertinent information that will help our inspection.

What should I expect during the inspection process?

We will schedule visits to the property and work with the community association manager and Board of Directors ahead of time to gain access to any necessary areas. Depending on the type of inspection, we may need access to the following:

  • A percentage of the units
  • Roof
  • Equipment and rooms where they are stored, such as elevators, fire safety, electrical and plumbing

What is destructive testing? Is it required during your inspections?

Destructive testing is used to test materials under various conditions and determine why materials failed, if they were incorrectly installed or find the cause of building damage.

Most of our inspections are purely visual. Destructive testing is only used during a Milestone Phase II inspection or the second phase of a construction defect inspection.
