Full Service Home Inspection
A Full Service Home Inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of all accessible systems and components within the home that can be “seen, touched, heard, or smelled.” Paragon Property Services, LLC follows the rules and guidelines as defined by the InterNACHI Standards of Practice for Certified Master Home Inspectors (CMI)®.
In a Full Service Home Inspection, we’ll inspect the following areas:
- Attic, Insulation & Ventilation
- Exterior (siding, trim, windows & doors)
- Porch & Deck
- Basement, Foundation & Crawl Space (depending on accessibility)
- Structural Components
- Heating & Cooling Systems
- Plumbing System & Fixtures
- Electrical System & Paneling
- Interior (ceiling, walls & floors)
- Fireplace & Chimney
- Attached Garage & Driveway
- Built-In Kitchen Appliances
- Detached Buildings & Outbuildings (upon request, additional charge)
The pre-listing inspection allows you, as a seller, to identify any issues that may be present prior to placing your home on the market. This allows you to understand what issues may arise from a buyer inspection, and to potentially address any deficiencies beforehand.
New Construction / Phase Inspection
As a residential property nears or completes the final phase of construction, a professional inspection is recommended to ensure that the home is safe, sound, and move-in ready. In a New Construction Inspection, we’ll evaluate the condition of a property to verify that safety issues or structural defects are not evident. Having your newly constructed home inspected is an important step to take for the security of your investment.
Phase inspections allow the inspector to evaluate your “new build” from the initial concrete pour, through the installation of wall studs and electrical / plumbing rough in all the way through the final inspection to assure the home is safe, sound and move – in ready. Having your new build inspected by an independent inspector provides you with piece of mind throughout the building process.
Manufactured home Inspection
Manufactured home inspections follow the same procedure as our Full Home Inspections, with a few differences. Specifically, we inspect the undercarriage of the home which includes vapor barrier (if present) and tie-downs. We are also able to provide HUD Engineering (Tie-Down) Certifications through Manufactured Home Certifications, US LLC.
**Please note, the link above is a request for the HUD CERTIFICATION ONLY. If you would like to schedule a full home inspection, please call the number above or click SCHEDULE INSPECTION.
Vacation Home Inspection
A Vacation Home Inspection follows the same procedure as our Full Service Home Inspection but is designed with remote communication in mind. If you’re unable to travel to Florida to view the home or attend the inspection, we’ll adapt our report to meet your needs. By including extensive photographic documentation with our findings and the option to utilize FaceTime for a remote, real-time video walkthrough, you’ll be able to stay informed from half a world away.
4-Point Inspection & Wind Mitigation
4-Point Inspection Report: Specifically designed to inform the insurance company of the age and condition of the following systems: Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC & Roof. This is an INSURANCE ONLY report and does not constitute a full home inspection.
Wind Mitigation: Specifically designed to inform the insurance company of the wind resistant features of your home. The report includes specific information regarding the roof to wall connections, roof covering, roof deck attachment and roof shape as well as any secondary water barriers that may be in place. In addition, the report will identify the wind rating of doors, windows and other openings (when available) as well as any impact rated opening protection that might be in place (such as storm shutters, etc.)
A Mold Assessment starts with the mold assessor doing a visual inspection and noting any signs of moisture / potential organic growth. Air samples will then be obtained from a representative number of rooms (as well as a control sample from the exterior of the home). If organic growth is found during the visual inspection, a swab sample will be obtained to identify the species of mold, upon request (at an additional fee). All samples are submitted to an independent laboratory, and results are typically available within 48 hours.
Pool & Spa Inspection
Pools are a common feature of properties in Florida, and it’s important to have them professionally inspected when buying or selling a home. In a Pool & Spa inspection, we’ll make sure that there are no safety issues or deficiencies present with the pumps, motors, or other equipment that could necessitate expensive repairs or render a pool or spa unusable.
