Chinese Drywall Testing & Inspection Tampa Bay
Would certainly use again for future properties.
Will highly recommend to friends

The inspector forgot to add that it was a problem that he could not get to the hot water heater to inspect it or the main water shut off valve. So after I saw that it was missing on his report, he added it back onto it and resent the report back out.
He offered to go back and reinspect again after the access panel stripped screws were replaced.
That’s the only reason I did not give him a full 5 star review.

I would recommend them for inpection on your home whether you are buying new or used.
I will be using them again when I am ready to sell the property to ensure wear and tear has been identified and fixed prior to putting on the market.
The inspector was wonderful and very thorough.
I highly recommend this company!!!
I cannot say enough good things about these folks
This was our 2nd time using Waybright for our home purchases. You won’t be disappointed. They are great to work with! Thanks so much!!

Joe was our technician and very informative.
He walked the buyer through the property and pointed out and explained every detail in the home inspection.
Going to use them again on another inspection Monday morning. From the point of contact, Crystal the “appointment specialist” made the process very easy to register the client.
Thank you Mike Walsh, Berkshire Hathaway Florida Properties Group.
All of their inspectors are knowledgable and professional. I can always get an answer if I need to know something right away and thats big for me because I am always working on time constraints
The best part of working with them is that I typically can get an inspector out in 1-2 days and I get the reports back on the same day.
Waypoint Property Inspection LLC = Done with Excellence.
Explain findings in a clear way so that my buyers understand.
Reliable and responsible professionals.
I was very surprised how thorough they were, I’ve been in construction 40 years and they both impressed me with their knowledge and how well they explained everything.
I would recommend these guys in a heartbeat!!!
Our completed review was emailed to us that night.
We would definitely recommend them.
These two gentlemen, Joe and Wilmer, didn’t even miss a scratch, dent, or a nick. They were exceptional !!!
I would strongly recommend using this company.
Waypoint inspectors not only know the business, they know customer service!
Thanks again for a great experience!
Every nook and cranny of the house was examined in detail and they did a comprehensive review of all of their findings with us before leaving the property that day. Much to my surprise I had the entire inspection report, 4 point inspection, and wind mitigation report by the end of the day. I'm amazed at the detail and efficiency of their process and feel confident that I'm fully aware of any issues in my soon to be new home.

Info about Chinese Drywall
Chinese drywall was installed around 2005 to make up for the lack of building material in the U.S. due to the hurricanes. Most drywall shipments in the US were to the State of Florida.
Remediation of Chinese drywall can be very extensive and costly. In most cases, a professional contractor is needed to remove all drywall and properly clean all home components to ensure the house is toxic free.
Chinese Drywall emits harmful gases when exposed to the southern climate. The gases can coat other home materials and can quickly cause several serious health effects.
Symptoms depend on level and length of exposure and include: headaches, itching, rash, eye irritation, bloody noses, memory loss, irritability, and more.
How do we test for Chinese Drywall?
In most cases, looking at copper components of the home can be an indicator of Chinese drywall as it causes a black residue. This included but it not limited to: copper wiring, copper supply lines, or HVAC equipment.
We can swab/sample possible toxic drywall to submit for official lab testing. This process can take a few business days to receive accurate results from the lab.
In some cases, the contaminated drywall can cause the home to give off a rotten egg smell. However, the smell alone cannot be used as an indicator due to other possible causes like well systems.
We can submit a report or action plan for next steps if the inspectors believes there is a concern. Waypoint can also give recommendations for reputable remediation contractors.
