There are two environments a building is designed to separate: the inside from the outside. A building’s envelope, when designed properly, will adequately block those two environments from having an influence on the other. Hence, as builders design and construct the envelope of the structure, they need to keep several performance objectives in mind to maintain this “separation.”
To achieve desired objectives, engineers must account for such vital concerns as moisture control, structural integrity, and temperature control. For example, regarding “air factors,” they need to be assured of how well heating and air-conditioned air will be contained inside the structure. And, of course, these objectives must be accomplished in such a way that the results of their workmanship remain pleasing to the eye.
These are all issues the AcuSystem Inspections’ team can help you evaluate, better understand, and address in implementing your design plans. First, our inspections will assess the overall condition of the building’s exterior. Then the goal is to evaluate the work done on the ‘envelope’ and develop possible maintenance, replacement, or repair options. AcuSystem Inspections offer you the expertise and experience to fully assess your needs once it becomes time to assess your exterior’s status.
Florida statutes provide for the owner of a proposed building to select a private provider to come and perform plan reviews and inspections as mandated by the Florida Building Code. This action enables you to stay compliant with this Building Code and Local Amendments.
AcuSystem Inspections will come onsite, perform these services for you, yet stay within the disciplines covered by our licensure. Also, our private provider service offers you a smart system for checks and balances from highly skilled, experienced, and trained home and building inspectors.
Florida building departments are overloaded with requests and commitments. To expedite your needs (to help you remain on schedule), we recommend hiring our third-party building inspection service rather than waiting on the state’s building department to come out and perform an inspection. Why wait when there is no telling how long that might take? We can often accommodate next-day service for private inspections scheduled by the close of business today.
Our Private Provider Building Inspections are available to all home and commercial builders at any point in the construction process. We can serve you starting at the groundbreaking with a pre-slab inspection, throughout the build (lintel, pre-drywall/frame, wall sheathing, house wrap, and more), or replace another private provider who is not delivering adequate or timely inspections by conducting a final building inspection.
We invite your construction team to walk with us during our inspection to locate any discrepancies in workmanship that could lead to a failed inspection in order to have them correct issues as needed. This saves you time and money! When corrections are made during our inspections, we can continue with our process, and you are not faced with a failed inspection or the need (and cost) for a re-inspection.
