At Gray Home Inspections we are driven, first and foremost, by our collective mission to serve our clients interests, protecting their home or commercial buying or selling decisions with pertinent facts about the condition of the structure that will determine the value and condition of an investment. Buying a home or commercial property is an expensive proposition of both time and money. Protecting that expenditure with a certified home inspection is a prudent decision. Without which, buyers and sellers are just operating in the dark and might make uneducated choices that could have dire consequences. Buying real estate is a complex process in which the buyer and the seller, each want to win equally. That means the seller achieves a certain price and the buyer receives a perceived value, equal to that agreed upon price. Having a complete, well-documented and reliable inspection keeps everybody informed through the selling process. Our inspections take the guess work out of the equation, so you can rest assured you are getting the best information possible to make the right informed decision.

As a military kid I have lived in a number of places as my father was deployed serving our country. I finally got the chance to call Jacksonville my home and spent my formative years here. I have always believed that service is the most important thing and have held many customer service-related jobs over my career. I have worked in the real estate industry for many years but have finally found a place to call home here at Gray Home Inspection. Besides being our client’s first point of contact, be it by phone, text or processing internet requests, I also manage 6 certified home inspectors each believing they are the best in the industry. In my spare time I love to spend time outdoors, at the beach, anywhere there is plenty of fresh air and sunshine.

Contact us today to schedule your inspection!

Call us at (904) 868-0587 or fill out our online web form and one of our team members will contact you back shortly.

We also offer scalable residential and commercial inspection services that can include mold detection, wood destroying organisms (WDO), wind mitigation inspections that involve roofs, doors and windows and 4-point inspections for insurance cost purposes. With the increased costs of Florida’s homeowner insurance, it’s no wonder many home owners are taking advantage of discounts offered by underwriters.

Our certified home inspection services don’t stop there with new construction projects employing contractors and sub-contracted labor that could be involved in all aspects of the construction. We believe one should trust but verify the workmanship that goes into a new build including:  phase inspections performed during construction, a final stage construction inspection while work is being completed and even an 11th month warranty inspection offered by most builders.

We even inspect a pre-occupied home for ventilation leakage that can occur through doors, windows or any unseen gaps or cracks that might have been missed during construction. These blower door and air and duct leakage tests will determine if the new home construction meets Energy Code Standards set forth by county building codes.

At Gray Inspections we have invested in the certification and training of our Certified Professional Inspectors (CPI) so we may offer you a complete array of inspection services. No longer do you have to rely on multiple companies to conduct inspections that we offer under one roof.
