Friendly, Honest, & Impartial: My home inspections serve as a professionally guided tour of a client's potential new home, and serve to objectively report on both the good and bad of a home.
I am prompt: I respond to inquiries, show up to appointments early, schedule inspections within 1 week of the inquiry, and provide an in-depth home inspection report within 24 hours of your inspection - via an interactive web link and pdf file.
I am clean & respectful: It is an honor every time a client asks for me to inspect a home, and I act like it! Every time I enter a home I wear clean booties over my shoes, clean up after myself, and leave no trace.
I am thorough, experienced, & use modern technology: Every inspection I do strictly adheres to InterNACHI's Standard of Practice, and then goes above and beyond offering significant additional value in several ways. A few ways I go above these standards include inspection of the electrical system (such as an inspection of the internals of the main and sub electrical panels, checking all modern outlets for full functionality including USB outlets, GFCI, and AFCI), using cutting edge technology including Infrared Thermal Imaging on every inspection to identify home energy efficiency improvement opportunities & possible hidden mechanical issues (such as electrical, insulation, moisture, or heating / cooling system issues), and using moisture meters to detect moist spots in the house. The latest in Infrared Thermal Imaging technology is included with every inspection on the exterior of the home - including IR Thermal Images in your Home Inspection Report! Most clients also ask for infrared imaging of the interior of the home as well. I also offer a 40 point Home Energy Inspection & report - identifying opportunities for energy savings, and where your greatest return on investment will be for home improvement projects. Check out my SERVICES or FAQ pages for a whole lot more information on my inspections.

Beyond InterNACHI's exhaustive CPI Certification, I'm also specifically certified by InterNACHI in the following areas: InfraRed Thermal Imaging, Radon Testing, First Time Home Buyers, Residential Property Inspector, Chimney, Kitchen, Pet Friendly, and COVID-19 (see the certification seals below).
