You’ve spent an incredible amount of time researching… Visiting many different homes over the course of many months… Working with your trusted realtor in searching and finding the perfect home for you and your family.
Now, you’ve finally found THE ONE.
The school is perfect. The neighborhood is fantastic. The price is reasonable. You and your family love the home. You’ve hoped and prayed about it and feel that this is it.
You’ve put in a bid on your home and it’s been accepted – now the home is under contract and pending. You are so excited! You’ve driven by your dream home, looked at it on Google Maps and already figured out the fastest way to get to work everyday.
You’ve even imagined how you will be arranging all of your furniture inside the family room. This is a very exciting time!
Now… you need an experienced, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy and unbiased home inspector to help you find out if everything is okay. Will your family be safe? Are there any unforeseen problems with the home?
We are here to help you find out.
A thorough home inspection depends heavily on an inspector's own effort. And, unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet us until our appointment. If you honor us by permitting us to inspect your new home, we guarantee that we'll give you our very best effort. We'll inspect your home as if it were our own.
This we promise you.

"Angeline & Cezar: It was great meeting both of you. I appreciate your hard work and dedication to helping us make a well informed decision on the purchase of our home. I have seen many inspection reports in my line of business; however, your report is the most comprehensive one I have ever seen. I appreciate the time and dedication and attention to detail you gave not only to the home I am selling but also to the home I am buying. I will recommend your services without hesitation. I hope you have a great evening!!" ~Aida S.
"My wife and I moved from PA to Orlando and knew very little about the building codes and regulations of our new state. We are so thankful we had Cezar and Angeline to inspect our new home and answer all our questions. Their attention to detail and care with their work is so impressive, they truly treat every home they inspect as if it was their own. They spent several hours checking literally all aspects of the home and then quickly and diligently prepared a full color easy to read report that for us as homeowners is priceless. This report will serve as a great guide for me as the new homeowner for things I can do to improve and make my home last as long as possible. They did this all for us while were still in PA but they kept us updated every step of the way via phone calls and emails. Then they went above and beyond by offering to return to the house free of charge because of one area they weren't able to inspect during the original inspection through no fault of their own. I really can't say enough how much I appreciate them and how I intend to use them for every future house I purchase. Moving is stressful, we all know it, but Cezar and Angeline really care and have provided us wonderful peace of mind for our future home." ~ Nate & Angela L.
"Many thanks to you Cezar and Angeline for the home inspection that you did on our behalf. You were both professional, knowledgeable, personable and very detailed. You inspected the property with organization and precision and we couldn't have asked for a better company to make sure that we were making a good investment. We received our report the same day as advertised and it was well put together and easy to read. I would recommend Prodigal Home inspections to anyone that I know needing a home inspection. May God bless you and your family." ~Denisia V.
"Cezar, Thank you so much for your quick turnaround on the home inspection report! Being a first time home buyer has been a very stressful process, but you have been a bright spot along the way! Your attention to detail and thoroughness was very much appreciated and you eased my worries by explaining your findings throughout the inspection process. Thank you so much for the part you have played in my journey, and I will definitely recommend your services to everyone I can think of in the future!
Thank you again." ~Lorna B.

The above image was based on a study done by the National Association of Home Builders & Bank of America. Obviously there is no hard and fast guide as to how long home systems and components will last. Therefore, we have also included an expected lifespan chart compiled by InterNACHI - please see below.
The following chart created by InterNACHI details the predicted life expectancy of appliances, products, materials, systems and components for homes in the state of Florida. While many components and systems in homes located in Florida and the surrounding area have service life expectancies that are comparable to those anywhere else in the U.S., those items that are regularly exposed to the elements, including saltwater, wind, sun and heat, are particularly vulnerable to premature failure compared to items installed in homes located elsewhere. These guidelines attempt to address those differences.
