Best Home Inspector Sarasota FL

Alpha Home Inspection Services was founded on 30 years of engineering, inspection, and building projects experience in diverse fields from housing construction to roads, drilling pads, and retention basins, as well as inspections ranging from residential construction to oilfields to commercial and heavy industry facilities. So, I could call myself the best home inspector in Sarasota FL. Alpha Home Inspections are thorough. When we look at a house, we consider the following factors:

  • Grading, landscaping, flora, and fauna are all aspects of the site’s condition.
  • Structure Exterior materials and condition, entrances (windows and doors), and any exterior penetrations Structure refers to the type of foundation. The structure of the floor, walls, ceilings, and attic.
  • Roofing: The materials used and the structure of the roof. Seals around penetrations, as well as flashing where necessary.
  • Plumbing: It is made up of both water and gas plumbing. Plumbing integrity, service, leakage, venting, and control are all evaluated, and more
  • Electrical: The type of service, the integrity of the service panel, the circuit distribution, and the installed safety equipment.

Residential and Commercial Inspection in Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte Counties

Welcome to Alpha Home Inspection Services and thank you for visiting our site. At Alpha it is my goal to make sure that you know the current condition of the property that you are considering for purchase before you purchase it. I want to make sure that you know the hidden costs of the property that you are about to purchase so that you feel secure in knowing what you are buying and can negotiate the price accordingly.

Why should you have a home inspection?

  1. Lender Requirement:  If a financial institution is going to lend money on the property, they are going to require that the property be thoroughly evaluated by a licensed professional.  By lending money, financial institutions have “skin in the game” and will not knowingly finance a deficient property.
  2. Information:  The more information you have about any piece of property, the more intelligent your negotiating the ultimate purchase price will be.  Would knowing that every appliance was in its last year of forecasted life and the roof was going to be obsolete in a year be of any value to you in negotiating the price of the home?  How about that the flashing on a roof line was incorrect and that you had damage to the wall structure as well as mold?  These are real-life examples of problems that have save our clients 10’s of thousands of dollars on the purchase price of their homes.
  3. Confidence:  The market is super hot right now.  It is tempting to close as fast as possible, perhaps overlooking a few things here and there, perhaps even your home inspection, just to close the deal quickly.  DON’T DO IT!  It is impossible for any prospective purchaser to be able to evaluate the integrity and condition of a home in a 30-minute spin with the real estate agent.  At Alpha, we are professionals and it typically takes us 2-3 hours!  By having a professional inspection you can then adjust your offer accordingly based on the inspection results, or leave the offer “as is”.  Either way, after an inspection you can have confidence in your decision without worrying about that next big expense that may be lurking right around the corner.
  4. Safety:  There are many situations or existing conditions in a home that cause a safety concern.  Anything from carbon monoxide detectors, to pool barriers, to loose or poorly constructed railings.  Would you know if your electrical service panel was deficient and could be the cause of a house fire?  Alpha does and the service panel is just part of over 300 items evaluated in a typical home.

Best Home Inspection for your Money in the Sarasota Area

There are literally thousands of home inspectors in the Central West Coast area, thousands.  Why Alpha Home Inspection Services?

  • I am just like you:  Just like you, my home is the largest investment that I have.  What ever I can do to make it last longer, intelligently delay or manage major expenses are always on my mind to protect my investment.
  • Experience:  I have 30 years of engineering and construction experience.  I have forever been overseeing construction projects.  I have created industry program after program for inspection and reporting procedures.  I have trained and mentored dozens and dozens and dozens of junior and senior engineers for the same.  I bring engineering discipline, logic, and observation to every inspection I do.
  • Maturity:  As a 30-year consulting engineer, I have worked with people from all walks of life, with all sorts of backgrounds and personal experience, and all sorts of technical knowledge; from advanced (Ph.D.) to none.  I will relate to you, both verbally and written, in terms that you can understand.  I want you to completely understand the condition of the property that you are considering for purchase.
  • Reporting:  After each inspection I will provide you a report.  It will be written in language that is clear.  It will be written to HELP YOU, my client.  It will provide visual queues so that you can quickly focus on what is important, and not be “lost in the sauce”.
  • Networking:  I will occasionally see something that I have never seen before.  Sometimes I see things that may have severe consequences.  I am very quick to seek opinions or confirmations from a network of other inspectors or tradesmen, the opinions of whom are well regarded in their industry.
