There are dozens of Cape Coral home inspectors. Cape Coral homebuyers should try to get the best qualified, experienced ASHI or NACHI or FABI certified home inspector for their pre purchase inspection.  "Full service home inspectors" claim to do it all, radon, mold, termite, etc.  As a Cape Coral homebuyer do you really want an inspector who provides these services as a side job?   Florida law requires home inspectors to have a license and mold inspectors are licensed separately to protect the consumers.  NOTE: A mold inspection usually takes longer than a home inspection, if the home inspection is two hours then expect the mold inspection to take another two hours or more.

Ft. Myers and Southwest Florida construction methods and techniques are often different than those in colder climates in the north.  Your Fort Myers home inspector must be experienced and familiar with Florida construction to give you a professional and thorough non-intrusive visual inspection from the foundation up to and including the roof.


Home inspectors in Fort Myers are required to have a Lee County occupational license.  Mold Inspectors in Lee County are also required to have an occupational license (home inspector occupational license does not qualify for mold or radojn testing).

Fort Myers home inspections are a “snap shot” in time concerning the condition of the home; many home inspectors offer a home warranty to buyers at the time of the inspection.  Homebuyers need to understand that the accessible areas are what are inspected.   Although some inspectors use infrared thermal imaging cameras they cannot see thru walls.  Infrared thermal imaging cameras are a must for moisture detection and every good mold inspector will have at least one.

The following items are just some of the areas that need to be checked by your home inspector to ensure that they function as intended at the time of the inspection.

Basement, Foundation, Crawlspace & Structure

Attic & Insulation
Doors, Windows & Interior

Definitions and Scope of the typical home inspection.

 A Home Inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a residential dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed material defects within specific components of said dwelling.  Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, or other essential systems or portions of the home, as identified and agreed to by the Client and Inspector, prior to the inspection process.

 A Home Inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. The inspection is based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and its components on the date of the inspection and not the prediction of future conditions.

 A home inspection will not reveal every concern that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection.

 A Material Defect is a condition of a residential real property or any portion of it that would have a significant adverse impact on the value of the real property or that involves an unreasonable risk to people on the property. The fact that a structural element, system or subsystem is near, at or beyond the end of the normal useful life of such a structural element, system or subsystem is not by itself a material defect.

 An Inspection report shall describe and identify in written format the inspected systems, structures, and components of the dwelling and shall identify material defects observed. Inspection reports may contain recommendations regarding conditions reported or recommendations for correction, monitoring or further evaluation by professionals, but this is not required.
