Each home inspection is different for many reasons, however, there are some common defects that Hero Home Inspections finds several times a week during home inspections in Windermere, Winter Garden, Kissimmee, Clermont, and surrounding cities.
One of the common defects found are roof drainage systems terminating too close to the home's foundation. While this seems minor, it can lead to a major defect in the home.
The good news is that extending your gutter's downspouts is easy and cheap! Simply visit a local home improvement store like Home Depot or Lowe's to pick up the material.
Be sure to call Hero Home Inspections with any inspection needs! (407) 630-4973
Looking at home inspectors near Orlando, Fl?
CONSIDER THESE MISTAKES WHEN SELECTING A HOME INSPECTOR
1. NOT HAVING NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTED
Just because the home is new does not mean that it should not be inspected by an unbiased, third party. Deadlines can be tight and contractors may be rushed or unexpected deficiencies may exist. Hire a professional to protect your investment.
2. CHOOSING A HOME INSPECTOR FOR THE WRONG REASONS
Believe it or not, but not all home inspectors are equal. You want to choose an inspector that is competent, thorough, and trustworthy. Unfortunately, many home buyers go with the cheapest inspection company or the one that is recommended by their Realtor. Researching price is wise, however, researching credentials is most important.
3. NOT BEING PRESENT FOR THE HOME INSPECTION
While inspection reports have come a long way, they may not provide you with the full understanding when compared to actually seeing the deficiencies with your own eyes. Attending the inspection will paint a much more clear picture and allow for questions.
4. NOT FOLLOWING YOUR HOME INSPECTOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS
Sometimes issues that may be found will need to be evaluated further by an expert in that specific field for repairs and associated costs. You don't want to be stuck with expensive repairs after the closing.
5. DON'T EXPECT YOUR HOME INSPECTOR TO BE A PSYCHIC
Home inspectors cannot see into the future. Experienced inspectors will provide you with detailed information about the existing condition of the home, however, estimating exactly when a system may fail is impossible.

Florida is no place to have roofing issues, especially with tropical storms and the wind that we have here. Here is our home inspection picture of the month... Definitely a roofing issue
Kissimmee Home Inspectors have to be used to the heat, for obvious reasons. But besides the heat, it is important to remember what the sun does to building materials here. The sun really destroys roofing material, siding, pavement, windows, and so many other items on your home.
So what can you do? Well, before a home inspector such as myself comes to inspect your home in Kissimmee FL, take care of the maintenance. Paint what can be painted, repair the roof, hire a home inspector to do a pre-listing home inspection, and think about hiring a handy-man to repair some of the "little" things.
