The maintenance and repair of an inground pool can cost into the thousands! When your property includes a pool, it is important for your protection that it is inspected prior to closing. I will provide the information you need regarding the condition of the pool so that you can make informed decisions. The inspection findings will provide a valuable tool for negotiation and future maintenance plans. The pool inspection will include the following pool areas:
- Circulating System
- Pool Barrier Requirements
- Pool Deck

Wind Mitigation Verification Inspection
A wind mitigation verification inspection is highly suggested for the homes built prior to 2002. If added during the time of the home inspection, you will receive a discount on the total cost. The wind mitigation verification inspection verifies the features installed in the house to safeguard against wind damages. The wind mitigation verification inspection includes:
- Roof Covering
- Roof Deck Attachment
- Roof to Wall Attachment
- Roof Geometry (Roof Shape)
- Secondary Water Resistance
- Opening Protection
During the inspection, I can provide areas of home improvements that when performed can lower the home insurance premiums.
