Choosing A Home Inspector…
Home inspection is a discipline that requires special training, knowledge and communication skills. Most certified home inspectors in Jacksonville utilize various high tech instruments which help them identify hidden defects; for example, Infrared Cameras to help locate moisture intrusion, missing insulation and electrical issues – GFCI and AFCI testers to check for safety issues – Moisture Meters and On-Site Computers (Cheap Charlie is probably still using the one in the photo).
