Home Inspections

What Is a Home Inspection?

You may not know exactly what a home inspection is, and that’s okay! A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with a real estate transaction. Typically, home inspections are performed by a Florida state-certified, licensed home inspector who has the proper training and certifications. The inspector will then prepare and deliver a written report of their findings to the client. Their job is to describe the condition of the home at the time of the inspection, but not to guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of the systems and components.

Does the Inspector Go Into the Attic, Crawlspace, Roof & Other Hard to Reach Places?

To answer this simply, yes! The inspector will absolutely go into these hard-to-reach spaces because they are crucial to a thorough and quality home inspection. Evolve will physically inspect all of these areas if it is safe to do so, and we will inspect as closely as possible. We want to be able to give you a complete home inspection report you can trust. 

Can a House Fail a Home Inspection?

There is no such thing as passing or failing a home inspection. Our goal is to accurately report on the physical condition of the house in a very straightforward and professional manner. We will indicate what repairs might be necessary or what items may need to be monitored for replacement in the future. The results can then be shared with the real estate brokers involved in the transaction to determine what items are subject to negotiation.
