What to Expect From Your Standard Inspection

If you are in need of a home inspection in the Tampa Bay Area, High Tide Home Inspections is here to help.

Whether you need a commercial inspection, a pre-listing inspection, or you just are interested in a home inspection to ensure proper maintenance of your current home, you can trust me to deliver excellent services.

I focus on providing education, and my goal is to give you all of the information you need about the property in question, and its overall condition. I encourage you to walk through the home with me and to ask any and all questions throughout the inspection process.

After the inspection, I will compile a comprehensive digital report, delivered online via HTML or in PDF format, documenting all of my findings including images, references, and further details. The report will be available for you both in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.
