Safety always in mind

On the lookout for defects

Premium Home Inspection with Exterior Infrared Imaging:

Think of a 218 Inspect Home Inspection as an expert guided tour of the home that you may be about to buy.  I take the deep dive in all systems of the home - from roofing to foundations, from toilets to the electrical system  - to identify any safety or material defects.  My Home Inspection exceeds the industry's best practices in many ways - ensuring that you know the good and bad with the home.  

Exterior Infrared Thermal Imaging photos are included in every inspection report!  My detailed home inspection report is emailed to the client the same day as the inspection!  Interior Infrared Imaging is available for an extra fee.

Home Energy Inspection & Report:

My Home Energy Inspection & Report is a detailed, 40 point home energy inspection and detailed report, providing you energy consumption estimates, recommendations on improvements, and how they could reduce your energy bills - identifying opportunities for the greatest return of your investment.  My unique Energy Inspection Reporting software is driven by the US Dept of Energy and is provided as a PDF file - but links to many other resources from the US Dept of Energy.  Additionally, a variety of resources, including E-Books on improving your home's energy efficiency are available on the Home Info Resources page of my website.
