Why construction experience is important for home inspectors

Advanced Home Inspections,  is a Pinellas county company based in Palm Harbor, Florida.   My name is Shawn DuBois, I am a licensed and certified Home Inspector and the owner.  I specialize in home and property inspections. I serve Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties. We offer the best value for home inspections in the area. As a Florida state certified Home Inspector and state certified  General Contractor with 20 plus years in the construction industry, I offer a unique insight into the structures that I inspect. Over the last 20 years, I was helping  to build and remodel these homes, and I spent thousands of hours experiencing the construction experience from start to finish. This kind of in-depth and firsthand experience has trained me to be on the lookout for potential issues that may otherwise be overlooked by less-experienced inspectors.
Unfortunately, construction experience is not a requirement, in the state of Florida for obtaining a Home Inspectors license. The minimum requirements to obtain a license can be as simple as taking an online course, passing a 1 hour test, and you have met the minimum standards and are licensed. Without construction experience it would be easy to  over look a defect that could have been addressed prior to closing and this could potentially cost you thousands. Don’t fall victim to an inexperienced Home Inspector. A home is, for most of us, the biggest investment we make in our lifetime.
When deciding on which Home Inspector to hire, always ask what construction experience/credentials they have. Let me put my 20 plus years of construction experience and General Contractor Certification to work for you. Call today to schedule your inspection. In a hurry for your Home Inspection? We provide the fastest scheduling of inspections and report delivery, in the area. You will have your report the very same day as the inspection.

Wind Mitigation Inspections Save you Money!

During a wind mitigation inspection, a certified inspector reports on the key features that may decrease the amount of damage your home suffers during a hurricane or strong windstorm. These features fall into several categories, such as exterior construction type, roof shape and construction methods, age of roof covering, door and window opening protection as well as the actual year the home was built. Another factor may be the elevation of a property and how it relates to wind speed.
