Business Description: Largest Home Inspection company in North America. We service 43 states and 9 Canadian Provinces. The Pillar To Post family has more than 800 home inspectors. In the year 2010 the Pillar To Post family completed more than 92,200 home inspections. Customers trust us to provide an accurate and thorough home inspection, and to take the time to educate them on the actual condition of the home. This is a trust we take very seriously and we value it immensely. We take pride in the customer service our team of inspectors deliver. We assist home buyers, home sellers and real estate agents in accurately inspecting and assessing the condition of the home. Every person on our staff is a licensed home inspector, even the office personel. The report is computer generated on site and hand delivered at the inspection, so we can address any concerns about the property while we are still on location. Of course, our phone and email are always available for additional questions or concerns. The report details over 1,400 key components of a home and its condition and is delivered in a three binder, which includes the report, standards of practice, cost and repair estimate guide,valuable coupons and a home filing system to track future repairs and expenses. The state of Florida only requires home inspectors to carry $300,000 of General Liability Insurance. At Pillar To Post we carry $1,000,000 in General Liability and $1,000,000 in Errors and Omissions insurance. The Roof and Termite(WDO)inspections are performed by companies with industry specific licenses. We want our clients getting the best possible report. We are experts in the home inspection business and they are experts in roofing and WDO. Effective July 1, 2011 all home inspectors need to be state licensed. Before this new licensing law took effect everyone and anyone was acting as a home inspector, no training was required. All of our inspectors are fully trained and licensed. We are also licensed Mold Assessors. When shopping around for quotes, be sure you are comparing apples to apples. Ask questions: Are they licensed? Do they carry insurance? Does the report include photos? Who performs the roof inspection? Who performs the termite(WDO)inspection? How long does it take to get the report? Is the report hand written or computer generated? Please call the office for a quote or to address any questions you may have.
