My focus is on education and so my goal is to provide you with all of the information that you need about the property in question. I welcome my clients to  walk through the home with me prior to my inspection so that I can answer any questions you may have about the inspection process.

Withing 24 hours, you will receive a comprehensive report, delivered online via HTML, or in PDF format, documenting all of the findings, and including images and video, references and further details. This report will be available for you both in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format, so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.

  • Roof

    The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. I will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.

  • Exterior

    This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

    I will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.

  • Plumbing

    I will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, water shut-off valves, and irrigation systems, if applicable, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

  • Electrical Systems

    I will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.

    I will examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and more.

  • Doors, Windows & Interior

  • Foundations, Basements and Crawl Spaces

    I will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.
