Insurance Inspections

Insurance Inspections

Today many Insurance carriers requests that a home buyer to have a Wind Mitigation Inspection performed. Florida state laws entitles you to receive a premium reductions if you qualify for specific discounts.  Without a Wind Mitigation inspection you could be overpaying for windstorm insurance. With a completed inspection you could possibly reduce your premium by 20%- 22%, according to the Florida Department of Financial Services.

If you would like to place insurance on your home and the home is over 30 years old, the insurance company will require you to have a 4 Point Inspection performed. Our 4 Point inspection includes the plumbing systems, heat/AC system, electrical system, roof structure, and a visual mold inspection. We will present you will a completed 4 Point Form and include all necessary pictures that are required by the insurance companies.

Mold Inspections

Mold Inspections

As a State Certified Mold Assessor, we are able to perform mold testing and mold sampling. Surface and air samples are taken from the home, then tested in a laboratory. Based on the detailed laboratory report, the homeowner can then take the necessary steps to remove the mold safely and effectively.  Testing a home is a prudent way to prevent small problems from growing into a costly and unhealthy situation.  There is a true value offered with this type of testing.

Due to the high levels of humidity in Florida, it is very common to find mold in our area homes.  Mold has a potential to cause health problems like allergies, irritation (to lungs, eyes, skin, throat, nose) and are potentially toxic. The longer it grows the more damage it may cause. If there is a mold finding in your home, you then have the opportunity to clean the mold promptly and properly.  Mold can be hidden, growing on moisture and can develop into a potentially large problem if not caught in time.

New Construction Stage Inspections

New Construction Stage Inspections

These inspections meet the needs of lending groups throughout Charlotte, Lee, Sarasota, and Desoto County.  Residential and commercial inspections are provided to verify stages of completion during construction. These inspections will also ensure compliance with architectural plans and verification of the required quality of workmanship.

We work with many local lending institutes to provide confirmation to the buyers and lenders that the construction is complete based on building specification, time frame, and draw schedules

11th Month Warranty Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. We will come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. Armed with information from that inspection, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they’re still in force.

This inspection will protect you and your property. It will give you that piece of mind after your one year warranty is over.

Realtor, January, 2016

This is my first time buying a home and I was referred to Kelting by a friend. The report was very thorough, the price was fair and affordable, and the service was beyond expectations. The home that I'm purchasing is in Arcadia and there was an issue with the plumbing when Wesley went out. He went above and beyond to coordinate with the seller who sent someone out to fix the issue, and the inspection was complete the same day. With this being my first experience with using a home inspector, Kelting really set the bar high. I would highly recommend them.

Had a great experience with Wesley. After his inspection he took the time to walk me thru the house and point things out. He informed me of items I should keep an eye on in the future. He was very friendly, I would recommend anyone looking for a good home inspector to give Wesley a call!

I'm an out-of-towner in need a home inspection, I found Mr Wesley Bulifant on Google. With all the positive reviews that he got, it gave me more confident to hire him. True to it, based on my agent, Wesley showed up on time and performed a wonderful job. We received his report the same day with all details, pictures (closed-up), explanations, suggestions... His honesty and fairness had given us an opportunity to negotiate with the homeowner. My husband and I, we're VERY HAPPY with a wonderful job that Wesley did. A BIG THANK YOU for a job WELL DONE, Mr BULIFANT. FIVE STARS all the way. We highly recommend him to everyone. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG with WESLEY.
