Be Informed About Every Aspect Of Your Home

Some people think of home inspections as only being about finding problems. At Dexaco, we think home inspections are more about exercising your right to “due diligence” and being informed about every aspect of a property. That way you can avoid costly surprise repairs and problems in the future. Plus, you’ll have a thorough inspection report prepared by a competent and qualified inspector that will help you proceed with confidence throughout the purchase process.

We offer inspection services throughout the Orlando Florida area.

A quality home inspection by a trained Dexaco professional covers a property from top to bottom. We offer pre-purchase inspections, new construction inspections before the concrete foundation is poured and again before the interior walls go up, and a pre-final walkthrough inspection. We also conduct 11-month warranty inspections on new homes so you can take advantage of your builder’s warranty before it expires. For sellers, we offer pre-listing inspections that help you get a clear picture of the property before you put it up for sale.

Dexaco Home Inspections include a thorough visual examination of the following elements:

Structure

The home’s framing and foundation should be secure and structurally sound.

Exterior

Your Dexaco inspector will look at sidewalks, driveways, steps, porches, decks, balconies, windows, doors, siding, trim, and surface drainage.

Roof

It is common to find issues with roofing material that can lead to greater problems. Nail pops, ladder gouges, and improperly installed flashing are frequently discovered but easily addressed. Usually, this means minor repairs should be made, not that you must replace the roof.

Plumbing

We examine the water drainage and supply systems, heating equipment, fuel storage systems, drainage pumps, and sump pumps.

Electrical

It’s important to know the condition of service entrance wires, service panels, breakers and fuses, and disconnects. We’ll also take note of the number of outlets in each room. Typically, potential electrical issues are more common in older homes, but we sometimes find them in newer homes as well.

Heating and Air Conditioning

The home’s vents, flues and chimneys will be inspected. We’ll examine the central air equipment, your water heater’s age and energy rating, and whether it’s the right size for the house and in compliance with local code. We’ll also look for such things as missing or incorrectly installed filters, loose or leaking connections for condensate piping, and whether the system has adequate fire clearance and proper flame quality.

Interiors

We’ll examine walls, ceilings, floors, steps, stairways, railings, countertops, cabinets and garage systems for signs of leaks, insect damage, construction defects and more.
