Are you familiar with the construction features on your home that will help it survive a windstorm? If DMI can verify these features, and you have not had an inspection yet on your current single-family home or condo, it is extremely likely that you will save money on your current policy (see frequently asked questions, and click here to visit FloridaDisaster.org and Calculate Your Potential Savings)
Due to many unfortunate instances of inspection fraud and abuse, carriers are now scrutinizing windstorm inspection reports more closely than ever. Don’t gamble with your inspection – use the company the carriers trust.
Windstorm Inspection pricing starts at $79.00 based on building type and location. And if you take steps to harden your home, re-inspections within 12 months of your original inspection are only $50.00. To request an appointment just fill out the online form or give us a call at (800) 469-0434 (or (954) 971-0512 if requesting a commercial windstorm).
Would you like to get an idea of the windstorm mitigation construction features on your home from a trained, licensed inspector? The Windstorm Consultation is a hands-on visit to help you understand where you are, and what could potentially be done to enhance your preparedness and potentially lower your insurance. An experienced DMI inspector will visit you for only $50, and help you determine then and there where you stand. Just fill out our online form or give us a call at (800) 469-0434 to set up an appointment.
If you represent a Condo Association and are looking to obtain an accurate inventory of the unit-by-unit opening protection situation for your location, give us a call at (954) 971-0512 and we would be happy to assist.
Once a home reaches a certain age, many insurance carriers would like to take a peek at the four main sources of insurance claims: the roof, plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems. DMI’s Four-Point Inspection, also known as the ‘Insurance Quote’ inspection, sets the standard.
No company has the reputation with insurance companies that DMI has built over more than a decade. We know the scope of what they are looking for and we know how to present it to underwriters. A clean Four-Point report from DMI is good as gold. Call us toll free at (800) 469-0434 to obtain an inspection that you know the underwriters will trust.
In some cases, the insurance company is only interested in the roof component of the Four-Point inspection, or has their own Roof Certification form. This is generally requested when the carrier would like to get an estimate of the remaining useful life of the roof. Call us toll free at (800) 469-0434 to set one of these up, usually for only $99.00.
Flood Elevation Certificates (For insurance purposes)
Is your home located in a FEMA flood zone? If so, you may need flood insurance, and therefore an elevation certificate to clearly state the elevation of the foundation of your home. FEMA and Congress periodically make changes to the flood zone maps and rates. If you find yourself needing an elevation certificate, please contact DMI at (800) 469-0434 and we will set you up with a quote. Elevation Certificate pricing is calculated by county, and starts at $149.00.
Residential & Commercial Replacement Cost Valuations
How accurate is the replacement cost estimate that was used to determine how much insurance you needed on your home? Under-insure and you may not have the coverage you need. Over-insure and you may be paying more than you need to. How long has it been since your policy was last evaluated? Consult with your valued insurance agent, and let DMI help you determine if it’s worth another look. Please give us a call at (954) 971-0512.
Don Meyler Inspections performs full appraisals based on both the replacement cost and market value approaches as may be required in many instances. All DMI market value appraisals are performed by state licensed engineer David Cliff (State-Certified Professional Engineer PE-52211). To receive a quote for an appraisal, please call us at (954) 971-0512.
Miami-Dade Certificate of Use Inspections
This is an inspection required to comply with Miami-Dade Ordinance No. 08-133, which applies to all residential properties in unincorporated Miami-Dade County which are acquired through a Certificate of Title (Foreclosures and Judgments), in accordance with Chapter 45, Florida Statutes. Residential properties affected include single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses and duplexes. The ordinance requires that title holders of foreclosed properties in Miami-Dade County obtain a Certificate of Use (CU) prior to offering the property for sale, transfer or alienation. This inspection must be signed off by an Engineer or Architect in the State of Florida. DMI is pleased to be able to offer Certificate of Use inspections for only $549.00. Call us at (800) 469-0434, Extension 334 to order.
Roof Strap Certifications
Changes in roofing laws may require a roof strap certification affidavit before replacing your roof in certain cases. Please call us at (800) 469-0434 to learn more.
