Jam Home Inspection offers detailed, factual inspection services designed to assist home buyers and sellers in identifying major concerns with the state of a property’s mechanical and structural components. We offer general home inspections of single-family homes, as well as multi-family dwellings including townhouses, duplexes, apartments, and condominiums.
Without a home inspection, what seems like a minor issue on the surface to a buyer’s eye could have disastrous, expensive consequences down the road. Oftentimes, costly issues are undetectable without a proper home inspection.
Jam inspectors utilize the latest tools in home inspection technology, including thermal imaging, to detect hard-to-find or hidden problems. Certified in thermal infrared imaging, we use IR cameras to perform a whole-house scan, locating hot spots that indicate concerns such as termite and other pest activity, moisture intrusion, heat loss, chimney flue leaks, and much more.
At Jam Home Inspections, we offer the following services:
General Home Inspection

Wind Mitigation Inspection
Living in South Florida, wind mitigation additions such as hurricane windows and doors are essential to protecting your home in the event of a strong storm or hurricane. Just one storm could financial devastate someone without proper safety features, which is why this inspection is now required in the underwriting process. Homeowners who add features that help reduce the amount of storm damage are often eligible for significant discounts on insurance premiums, as much as 80% in many cases. We provide wind mitigation inspections to submit to insurance companies, detailing which storm safety add-ons have been installed to protect against heavy winds
A four-point inspection evaluates the condition of the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems and the roof. Performed by our licensed inspector, this assessment is done to affirm that these four main home components are in good working order. It can be done as a stand alone or in conjunction with a standard inspection. Insurance companies require a four-point inspection report when a home is older than 40 years old or rental property is older than 30 as part of the underwriting process in order to determine whether they will provide coverage or not.
Re-Inspection After Repairs
Once you are in contract negotiations as a home buyer or seller and an inspection has been done, the sales process may not move forward without repair contingencies. In this event, after a homeowner has made repairs, we re-inspect the property to ensure all improvements requested on the repair addendum have been made.
Our professional home inspector provides homeowners valuable insight into the condition of their home before listing property. This comprehensive report ensures you don’t have any surprises after the buyer has hired an inspector. You can address issues before listing to help ensure the closing process goes as smoothly as possible. Pre-listing inspections also allow you to accurately price your house and improve buyer confidence.
New Construction Inspection
Inspections after new home construction may not seem necessary, since it has never been lived in and hasn’t been subjected to years of elements taking their toll. However, things can go wrong in the building process, and many new homes have suffered from HVAC issues, improperly wired electric, foundation concerns such as cracking, water damage, insufficient insulation, plumbing issues, and other disrepair / hazards. This thorough inspection, typically completed before your final walkthrough, helps new home buyers ensure they’re making a sound investment and won’t be subject to expensive repairs due to no fault of their own.
Destructive pests, termites often go undetected without an exhaustive inspection, and homeowners may be unknowingly infested for months or years. Our termite inspections check for active infestation indicators such as wood damage, mud tubes, and exit holes, so homeowners can repair the damage and eliminate infestation before selling. We also search for damage from previous infestations and potential areas susceptible to future infestations, such as access points in the structure’s foundation.
