Did you know that Kelting Home Inspections offers 9 different types of inspections that can be combined in numerous ways? Our hope in offering so many options is that our clients will be provided with the most thorough service and peace of mind possible when moving into their new home. With that said, we understand that all of these options leave most people asking “So which inspections do I actually need?”  When ordering a home inspection here is a simple outline of our 3 most popular inspections to help you sort through what you will need to order:

  1. Residential Inspection: This inspection is recommended whenever you buy a new home. It is our most thorough inspection and will look over the entire property and any foundation that is attached to the main living area (including the garage, patios, etc.). With this inspection, you receive a number of free warranties and a detailed report, complete with pictures. The goal of a residential inspection is to give you a clear understanding of what you are purchasing in your new home.
  1. Wind Mitigation: Most insurance companies will require a wind mitigation for any home that is not brand new. This inspection checks the roof, windows, and doors in order to make sure your home is ready to handle a hurricane. With a “wind mit” you get a filled out report (including pictures) to give to your insurance company for discounts on your insurance. Depending on your situation these discounts could be quite significant!
  1. 4-Point Inspection: Most insurance companies require a 4-point inspection for homes that are 30 years or over. A 4-point checks the 4 main points of a home (roof, plumbing, AC, and electric). With this inspection, you will receive a one-page report (including pictures) to give your insurance company so they can approve your coverage.

The Kelting Team is more than happy to answer any further questions you have regarding these inspections. Please feel free to call our office at 941-655-8888 so that we can assist you in your scheduling needs!


You have found the perfect home for your family. It is the right size, right neighborhood, and filled with potential. Unfortunately, in speaking with your realtor they disclose that there may be a history of lead paint being used in the home.
It is important to note that most homes built before 1940 used lead paint on their walls. While the use of lead paint greatly decreased after this time it was still in use through 1980. For this reason, the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act, Title X, requires realtors, sellers, and landlords to disclose any existence of lead-based paint in homes that were built before 1978. We are confident in the realtors that we work with to provide this information to you and protect you as their client.
Kelting Home Inspections offers lead-paint testing in which we take samples of every painted surface in your potential home and send the samples to a lab for testing. Once these samples are returned, you will receive a report directly from the lab that your inspector will go over with you as needed. A risk assessment will be provided to inform you of any specific areas to take note of as well recommendations for action steps to address these hazards. If you are looking at a home that you love but have been informed that lead paint may be present, don’t give up yet. The process of remediation can begin under the guidance of your realtor.
At Kelting Home Inspections, we care that your family has the peace of mind that they are moving into a safe and stable home. Our goal in these inspections is to give you the knowledge you need to make a confident decision as you purchase your dream home. For more information about our lead-paint inspections contact us at 941-655-8888.
The inspectors at Kelting Home Inspections are trained to provide a thorough inspection of your home. We want to ensure you know the true condition of the home you are purchasing or selling. We also include several warranties with our inspections, at no additional cost to the clients.


At Kelting Home Inspections we work daily with the realization that the freedom we have to run this business was not given to us without cost. We are thankful for those in our community who have sacrificed their time with family, their health, and even their lives to give us the freedoms we walk in daily. For this reason, we are excited to honor them through our partnership with Hometown Heroes.

Hometown Heroes is an organization that takes the time to honor those who sacrifice on a regular basis to serve our communities and our country. They describe their mission like this:

“With a servant’s heart, Hometown Heroes and those who partner with us, are committed to giving back to the men and women who serve our country and our communities. We understand that saying, ‘Thank you’, is just the beginning and that actions speak louder than words. Through our words and our actions, we will recognize and honor our Heroes individually and as a community.”

Kelting Inspections is proud to let our client’s know that as part of our partnership with Hometown Heroes we offer veterans and first responders discounts on their home inspections. We hope that in this small way we can show those who have sacrificed for our freedoms how very appreciative we are of their services. To all who have served and continue to serve we say “Thank you!”

Romans 13:7-

Give to everyone what you owe them … if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
