Additional Information

Direct Inspections will provide you with a comprehensive review of your electrical system including the main service panel, sub-panels, electrical meter, grounding, location of your main shut off switch and GFCI/AFCI circuit protection throughout your house. We look for improper wiring, arcing, recalled service panels and “handyman” installations that can put you at risk.

Water softening and purification systems are noted – not inspected.

We also inspect fireplaces for major visible defects, cracks and damper operation.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text.

Windstorm Mitigation inspections look for construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a hip roof, concrete block construction, the presence of gable end bracing, shutters and opening protections, the presence of roof to wall attachments such as toe nails, clips or hurricane straps, and secondary water resistance barrier.

When it comes to verifying the windstorm protection your home, it pays to hire the best home inspection company that can do the job right. We can spot potential issues with your home that can be corrected as well as qualify your property for discounts when it comes to certain types of insurance.

Homeowner’s insurance alone does not cover everything that can happen to your property. For example, while many people are aware that flood damage is not covered by homeowner’s insurance, neither is damage due to a windstorm under many circumstances. In order to properly protect your property from this type of damage, you’ll want to put on your home inspection checklist one for damage due to windstorm and see what type of coverage is required.

A wind mitigation inspection is one that may qualify a property for discounts when it comes to obtaining insurance against windstorms. The discounts generally apply if the property contains features that are sufficiently wind resistant. The home inspection company that does the inspection will report to the insurance company about any of the features present that will create a discount for the coverage.

This kind of inspection is often conducted in the coastal area of the Southeastern United States where wind damage is a common occurrence due to hurricanes. Direct Inspections, your Sarasota inspection company will provide you with a complete inspection for your property and identify for you the areas that already qualify for a discount and those that may need additional protection.
