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.

This inspection will protect you and your property. It will give you that peace of mind after your one year warranty is over.
Today many Insurance carriers request that a home buyer have a Wind Mitigation Inspection performed. Florida state laws entitle you to receive a premium reduction 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.
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 completely based on building specification, time frame, and draw schedules
Many families will hire their own inspection company to inspect the home throughout each stage of construction. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that your contractor is building the home based on the building specification. Kelting Inspections can perform a walk-through inspection on your behalf.
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.
