That’s why we provide a comprehensive written report to serve as your guide for as long as you own the home. It not only describes the house components and their condition, but also provides insight into what improvements will be necessary, and when. Our report can also help you set up a home maintenance program to take care of one of the most significant investments most people make.

As an InterNACHI® Certified Professional Inspector®:
I'm required to stay up to date with the industry’s most rigorous Continuing Education through online, video and live training courses, which have been awarded more than 1,400 approvals and accreditations by governmental and other agencies;
I adhere to a comprehensive Standards of Practice to ensure that you receive a detailed and accurate home inspection;

And my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in your report.
For the Home Buyer
A home is probably the largest purchase you'll ever make, so it's important to understand the condition of your investment. I will provide a non-invasive examination of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection is not a prediction of future conditions, and cannot reveal every concern that exists (or ever could exist), it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.
For the Home Seller
Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you're dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now.
