Why Lake City Inspections?

Qualified Inspectors

Our inspectors are certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, the only home inspector training program that is accredited by the US Department of Education. Each inspector must maintain their certification by completing a minimum 24 hours of continuing education each year and recertifying every 3 years.

Cohesive Reports

We deliver easy-to-understand yet comprehensive home inspection reports in digital format within 24 hours of the inspection, complete with photos, videos, and notes on areas of concern. Once completed, a link to the report is sent via email and text message that will continue to be accessible indefinitely for your review as needed.

More Than Just Peace of Mind

We keep protecting our clients long after we've handed over the inspection report by providing over $100,000 in warranty coverage with every complete home inspection. This includes a 1 Year NXT Structural Warranty, 90 Day Mechanical Warranty, 5 Year Roof Leak Protection Plan, SewerGard, MoldSafe, and a FREE Home Buy Back Guarantee.

What Is Included In A Home Inspection?

An inspection performed by our Certified Professional Inspectors® and Certified Master Inspectors® includes all major systems found in a home that are important to potential buyers per InterNACHI's Standards of Practice. These include HVAC, interior and exterior sheathing materials, roofing, visible plumbing, visible electrical, windows, foundations, and other visible components of the property.

It is important to note that a home inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a residential property. Not all defects may be possible to identify. For example, inspectors can test and inspect the plumbing system (water flow, drainage, visible leaks, etc.), but can't view components inside walls or components inaccessible at the time of inspection. Homebuyers should consider purchasing home warranty coverage to protect their investment. Every home that we inspect for buyers or sellers qualifies for an exclusive 18-Month Home Warranty from Residential Warranty Services that features the most comprehensive warranty coverage available in the United States.

A home inspection is not a "code inspection" and primarily seeks to identify major defects and conditions that are deemed "material" and may affect the functionality of the home. We also place emphasis on safety concerns and strive to educate potential buyers or sellers on items that may present issues or need immediate attention. Any questions regarding permits for inspected properties should be directed to the relevant municipal or county building departments.
