Wood Destroying Organism Inspections
South Florida’ Climate is known for high humidity. Pest and wood destroying organisms love humidity. Thats why they call Florida the WDO Capital of the World. Wood Destroying Organism cause more damage to homes than flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes or fires. Homeowner insurance policies rarely cover WDO damage. Having a professional WDO Inspection will not cost much but will give you peace of mind when buying a home.
We always recommend that our customers have their homes inspected once a year. Maintaining homes can be tricky, especially for new homeowners, and our Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can keep owners a step ahead of potentially expensive or difficult long-term damage. We will inspect for existing issues in the home as well as anything that might pose a problem within the next year.
for Real Estate Agents
We recommend that sellers have their homes inspected before putting them on the market. This allows for any issues in the home to be resolved before potential buyers get a chance to see it, which can make the selling process quicker and easier for the buyer and sellers. Furthermore it builds trust and buyer confidence.
Most insurance companies will require a 4 point inspections, wind mitigation inspections, and roof condition inspections to be performed before a home can be insured, especially an older home. 4 Eyes Home Inspections offers each of these services as they are explained below.
11th Month Inspection
Many newly built homes come with a one-year warranty that covers any defects in construction. After these first 12 months, the homeowner becomes the responsible party for any issues in the home. We will perform a Full Home Inspection during the 11th month of this warranty, giving homeowners the chance to have any defects repaired before the warranty expires.
During a Roof Condition Inspection, we inspect the roof to determine its age and what condition it is in. This information can help you decide which aspects of your roof may need to be updated, and it will allow insurance companies to know the estimated lifespan of the roof and the risk it may have for the insurance company. See the required form here:
Roof Certification form
4 Point Inspection
A 4 Point Home Inspection is non-invasive and covers the visual assessment of a home’s four most important accessible areas: the roof, electrical system, plumbing system, and HVAC. During these inspections, we will determine the condition of each point and how old it is so that this information can be given to the insurance company. This inspection is usually required by the insurance carrier every couple of years, and usually depends on how old the house is.

Wind Mitigation Inspection
During a Wind Mitigation Inspection, we will inspect the home for signs of hurricane protection. Usually, a wind mitigation inspection is requested to determine which credit(s) apply to a home. During a wind mitigation inspection, a certified inspector looks for key features and add-ons that reduce the amount of damage your home may suffer in the event of a hurricane or strong windstorm. These features might include, Impact doors & windows, hurricane panels, accordions shutters, etc. See the required form here:

Drone Roof Inspections
Drone technology has made Roof Inspections not only safer for the home inspector, but also cause less damage to your roofs. This technology is a faster and a more cost-effective way to gather information and spot any problems. Drones help us get to areas of the roof that are sometimes too dangerous,difficult, wet or steep to inspect. They are a great tool in enhancing our roof inspections. We are trained, certified and licensed FAA Part 107 UAV Pilots.

Thermal Imaging Technology
Infrared Technology does not “see through walls”, but it’s a tool that gives us a better view of any visual “temperature differences” we detect during our inspection that might indicate a possible concern. While there is no guarantee that nothing will be missed during our visual Inspections, thermal imaging helps us perform a more thorough inspection than what we can see with the naked eye. We are Certified in Infrared Technology.
