Our History


Catalina Inspections is part of Catalina Building Corp., a second generation building contractor established in South Florida since 1958.

During the 1960s and 1970s, we were one of the largest residential development contractors in Miami-Dade County, building communities that have become a part of the landscape of South Florida. Among them are: Lake Sheldon (Hialeah), Lake Catalina Estates (Miami), Tanglewood (Palmetto Bay), Kendall Point (Miami), Catalina Hills (Miami), and Pepperwood (Miami).In the decades following the 1970s, we began focusing on building custom single family homes. You’ll find many of these homes in the most prestigious neighborhoods of Miami, Pinecrest, East Kendall, and Palmetto Bay. Our customers trust our work and we received ongoing referrals to do renovations and additions as well as new construction. Our business expanded easily to include a wide variety of projects along these lines. We also built a number of commercial projects, including offices, warehouses, retail stores, and types of specialized commercial construction.

The core of our company has always been an emphasis on quality.  It has been the engine behind our past success and directs us to new opportunities. As South Florida has grown, we saw there was a strong need for competent and experienced home inspections. We formed the division of Catalina Inspections in response to the word-of-mouth demand generated past customers, realtors®, and real estate attorneys.

They are confident in Catalina as the expert in homes…. from building them to inspecting them. You can be confident in Catalina Inspections too.
