Residential Home Inspection
- Professional Digital Report with Photos and Summary Page
- On-Site Consultation
- Same Day Report Delivery
A home inspector is your first tool when it comes to making important decisions about a home investment. Whether you are buying or selling, a professional home inspection will provide you with critical and timely information that you can use. When you’re ready to buy, you want to know that the home you are considering is a safe and sound investment. You want to avoid any unwelcomed and costly surprises. When you are selling your home, you will need to make full disclosure of any and all known deficiencies. You’ll want to know what, if any, repairs to make so you can market your home most effectively. Whichever side of the “For Sale” sign you’re on, a quality home inspection is must have.
With CheckMARK Home Services you will have a licensed and insured home inspector conduct all of your inspection needs, promptly and professionally. All major systems of the home are included in our home inspection. Our home inspection service includes a visual inspection of the structural elements and systems which are accessible.
Once your inspection is complete you will have the opportunity to walk through the property with your inspector and talk through the findings. You will receive your detailed inspection report the same day. Your report will cover all of my findings and concerns using both pictures and detailed descriptions. In addition, I will let you know if it is a safety issue, major defect or a simple maintenance repair.
These areas typically include:
- Basement, Foundation, Crawlspace & Structure
- Attic, Insulation & Ventilation
- Heating and Cooling Systems
- Doors, Windows & Interior
Wind Mitigation Assessments
According to Florida Statute, all insurance companies are required to offer Florida homeowners “discounts, credits, or other rate differentials…” for particular construction techniques that help to reduce wind damage caused by hurricanes, tropical storms and other windstorms related claims.
The following items are reviewed in a Windstorm Mitigation Inspection:
- Year Built
- Date of roof installation
- Type of roof deck and deck to truss/rafter fastening method
- Type of roof-to-wall attachment (hurricane clips)
- Roof Geometry (shape)
- If there is an acceptable secondary water resistance barrier (SWR) such as “Peel and Stick”,
- If there is any window/door opening protection (wood panels, shutters, impact windows, etc.)
Note that each item can be an individual credit and it is not necessary to meet the most stringent requirements for all of the questions in order to get a discount on insurance.
I produce your inspection report digitally and send it to you with the appropriate Florida form and necessary pictures. If you provide me your Insurance Agent’s email address, I would be happy to send them copies too.

- Pumps and Motors

Home Damage Inspection
I go through your property to assess and document any damage so that you are prepared to get estimates for repair or to make sure that an insurance settlement covers everything impacted. I utilize standard as well as infrared photography.
Insurance Settlement Assessment
I inspect your property and review the insurance company’s findings with you and then document any discrepancies or additional items that require remediation. You can use my report for your discussions with your insurance company.
