40 YEAR RECERTIFICATION INSPECTION PRO'S

WHAT IS A 40 YEAR RECERTIFICATION INSPECTION?

When a building turns 40 year old, a mandatory inspection and recertification is required to ensure that the structure still meets safety standards and current building codes and identify areas that need updating to bring the facility up to par. Every ten years after that, you’ll have to get another re-inspection done for the same purpose and keep an eye on structures as they age and become more likely to show signs of disrepair.

WHY US

Hire real professionals to perform your building inspections

Whether your building is just celebrating its 40th birthday or if you have a century-old structure, the experience and attention to detail that our professional inspector brings to the occasion are crucially important to the safety of your building and the future of the structure itself.

Our Commitments To You 

Ultimately we all have the same goal — we want your buildings to be safe for occupancy and to have a long life. So if your inspector either doesn’t know what he’s looking at, doesn’t know what to look for, or is simply looking for a passing inspection to skip out on prescribing the work required to bring your structure up to par — then the people in the building face a severe risk of danger. Your building may experience more rapid structural decay than if it received the service it needs.

We are Licensed and Experienced

Our licensed and experienced professional inspectors do the job right — every time. We take the time to thoroughly investigate every area of your building to represent its status accurately, provide commentary on how to bring deficiencies up to code, and ultimately lend the professional support you need to protect your structure and the people in it.

Who we serve

Whether you’re part of a homeowner’s association, a property owner or manager, or even a private homeowner, we bring the same professional touch to your 40-year building recertification inspection to facilitate your success.

WHAT IS THE 40 YEAR RECERTIFICATION PROCESS?

The 40 year recertification process includes structural integrity and electrical safety inspections. Here’s how the process flows:

You receive a notification. 

You have 90 days to have a Florida Registered Architect or Engineer inspect the property and provide the city with a sealed Building Safety Inspection Certification.

Your submittal must include both the structural and electrical package, as well as the permit application.

 A licensed professional must complete a form that identifies required repairs OR a statement that no repairs are needed.

Owners must submit it IN PERSON (The office won’t accept mailed reports) with a $200 payment.

No inspections are required for ten years if the building is classified as safe. Therefore, you have 180 days to obtain necessary permits and complete specified repairs if structural or electrical deficiencies are indicated.

Failure to submit the 40 year structural recertification form results in a Notice of Violation and Notice of Hearing and penalties if efforts are not made to comply promptly.

Extensions may be granted on a case-by-case basis.

FAQ

40 year recertification
  • DO I HAVE TO GET A 40 YEAR RECERTIFICATION INSPECTION?

    It may seem like too much of a hassle or something you could safely skip out on altogether. But a 40 year building inspection is an absolute necessity to remain compliant with current building codes and standards and to guarantee the safety of the occupants therein. It’s not just a red tape matter; it is about people’s safety.

    No matter the location, materials, or environment, time will inevitably take its toll on any building or structure at some point. Not only that but if you’ve made any alterations to the building over the course of its 40 year lifetime, then an inspection will be required to see if those alterations meet building codes and standards and how to bring them up to code if they don’t.

    Even if that’s not enough to convince you — the fact is, your 40-year recertification inspection is a legally required mandate. It’s not optional for you or anyone who owns or manages a 40-year-old building.

  • WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM 40 YEAR RECERTIFICATION INSPECTIONS?

    Your local or regional entity will provide you with a checklist of elements you must inspect to guarantee safety and compliance with current codes. The inspection elements focus on matters of safety, not aesthetics — don’t worry if your building has outdated carpet or window shades. The inspector will be looking at things such as structural integrity and the electrical system — the things that determine whether a building is still safe.

    While the process appears relatively straightforward, you still want to guarantee you have an experienced team of professionals performing your 40-year recertification inspection. The form makes it look effortless — it’s basically a checklist and a few blank areas for notes, observations, and commentary.

    But in reality, your inspector must understand the intricate details of every element presented on the list. Failure to recognize the details could put the occupants in danger and shorten the structure’s lifespan.
