Tallahassee Areas Trusted Home Inspectors
Many homes can appear to be just what you are looking for but they can also have many unknown potentially serious defects. These defects can make your investment a more costly one. We are here to help identify any that may exist and offer solutions to those problems.
Our home inspections can save you thousands of dollars on items which you may be able to have the seller or builder correct.
Why choose Capitol Home Inspections LLC.?
Our decades of experience in many of the construction trades including Electrical, Framing, Home Elevator and Accessibility, Remodeling, Roofing etc. along with years of consulting and project management have made us uniquely qualified to inspect the property you are considering.
Available in both printed and electronic form, our detailed home inspection reports are in an easy to read narrative format. We include detailed digital photos and thermal images so you can see exactly what the comments are describing to provide you with valuable information about the structure and components in your new home.
In addition to giving you the best information we can to help you make your decisions, our inspection reports are also structured to be an “Information Resource” long after you have moved into your new home.
We also include:
- Model and serial numbers for major appliances
- Locations for water, gas and electric shutoff's
- Locations for plumbing clean-outs
- Sizes and locations for return air filters
- Locations to GFCI resets which are not obvious
- Utility providers contact information
Basically, we believe that you deserve more than just a pass/fail checklist that many others provide.
The Inspection Process:
While many inspectors advertise that they welcome the clients presence during the inspection, we have found that this is not the best practice. We prefer to arrive and inspect the home 2 to 3 hours prior to your arrival. We believe that is important for us to dedicate all of our attention to the inspection process and then dedicate all of our attention to explaining our findings and answering all of your questions during a second walk through. This is too important for multitasking, both stages deserve our full attention. While this process does take us more time, this second walk through gives us an opportunity to double check our work, do a better job explaining our findings and saves your valuable time while we are crawling around in an attic inspecting the roof or crawling under the house.

We go out of our way to make sure you are happy with our services and strive to make you want to recommend us. We are available at any time to answer your questions or further explain our findings. Not only for you but also any contractors that may be doing any repairs. A quick call from a contractor before they come to your home can often save their time and your money. Because of our vast construction experience, we can also help with finding solutions to the issues we identify and can provide a list of vendors who are qualified to make repairs or provide additional services.
We include thermal imaging in all of our home inspections. While many inspectors charge extra for this service, we feel that it is just part of doing a through inspection. This technology helps us find moisture related problems, missing insulation, hot electrical components and leaking duct work that may be invisible to the naked eye. While this is a valuable tool for finding potential problems it is not a magic trick that lets you see through walls. All findings must be verified using other techniques before being included in a report.
