Certified Home Inspections

My Promise To You

Service Area

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, lots of work. Ultimately a through inspection depends heavily on the indididual inspector's own effort. If you place trust in me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
