At Suncoast Inspections we provide a wide array of certified residential home inspections and commercial building inspection services throughout Tampa Bay area and state of Florida.
About Suncoast Inspections
It is our core belief that the inspector you hire must be totally independent of real estate agents, contractors, builders, mold remediator’s, Banking Institutes and mortgage brokers. This is the only way to assure our clients that there is no conflict of interest on the part of the inspector.
With Suncoast Inspections.com, you get an Independent Commercial & Residential Building Inspector with an extensive knowledge base in both building categories, as well as extensive knowledge and experience in new construction consulting, and expertise in Indoor Air Quality, mold, bacteria, sick building syndrome, moisture intrusion, construction defects, building forensic science and Thermography (infrared camera).
Suncoast Inspections.com founder, Chris Miller, has conducted over 12,000 video-taped inspections, from yesterday’s treasures to today’s state of the art estate luxury homes and high-rise commercial buildings. Chris is licensed by The Great State of Florida for Building and Mold Inspections, Certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), and the Florida Association of Building Inspectors (FABI). In addition to being the first inspector in the Tampa Bay area to become a Certified Level 1 Thermographer, Chris was also the first to become a Certified Mold Inspector/Technician and is a member of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), the International Code Council (ICC) and a Florida State Certified Stormwater Management Inspector. Chris Miller has taught Expert Witness Seminars at Stetson Law College and is the driving force behind Suncoast Inspections.com, bringing over 25 years of residential home and commercial building construction experience to your inspection.
With over 5000 commercial building inspections from retail centers and warehouses to multi-story high rise buildings, Suncoast Inspections can also provide Environmental Phase 1, termite and mold inspections.
Thermal Imagery provides insight into a wide variety of potential problems in buildings resulting from moisture intrusion, trapped water in roof systems, HVAC leaks and inadequate insulation.
This service is designed to go above and beyond inspecting. SuncoastInspections.com will test and remove building materials to determine the extent of damages and document the findings.
What is an Independent Inspector?
We strongly believe that there must be no relationship between the real estate agent, broker, contractor and the inspector. An independent inspector does not receive business from real estate agents. Which means he is not recommended by an agent, does not expect repeat business from an agent and therefore has no loyalties to the agent. Real Estate agents are in a position to control the transaction and they will do so if you let them. They may recommend three inspectors, (they know well and have used), confident that their inspector will not upset their real estate deal and commission. Why would a real estate agent risk loosing a sale by hiring a thorough inspector that might kill the deal? It is a fact that real estate agents will hire inspectors partial to their position in the transaction, not the clients. It is a major conflict of interest for a real estate agent to recommend any inspector! Suncoast Inspections.com was the first and is the longest active member of the Independent Home Inspectors of North America (IHINA) in the Tampa Bay – Florida area.
Why do we videotape?
The primary reason is to document the current condition of the dwelling at the time of inspection. It also documents what was inspected and uncovered by the inspector. A camera has the ability to capture much more than a single still photo. The tape is archived for over five years and is available for our clients should they ever need it, for litigation or insurance purposes.
Suncoast Inspections.com was the first Tampa Bay area certified inspection company to offer HD videotaping service for every residential and commercial inspection and cost estimates of the repairs. Whether you are across town, out of the state, or out of the country, Suncoast Inspections.com provides you with a video-taped inspection of your home or commercial building. If you cannot attend your inspection, let Suncoast Inspections.com bring your inspection to you via video tape.
Our primary service areas are: Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Manatee, and Hernando counties, however, we do travel throughout the entire state of Florida.
