I have several services currently available. Each is described below.

 
General Home Inspection


 
My home inspection service is a concentrated effort to gather and provide information about the condition of a dwelling.  It is also designed to point out any visible safety concerns.  My service is a visual inspection of the dwelling and can only provide conditions of the systems and components as they were on the day of the inspection. I am a home inspection generalist and many times I will refer you to a specialist to review and repair a noted problem.

My inspection service will include an average of 3 to 4 hours on site to inspect and gather information.  I highly recommend that you be present during the inspection so I can explain things as we go. My service will include a written report which will include narrative comments .  There will also be pictures provided within the report to help illustrate some things. 

If you are present, we can discuss the issues that were found before we depart the site on the day of the inspection.    I will then take the photos and information gathered back to my office to write the report.  The report I produce will be constructed and delivered promptly.  In most cases later that evening but rarely longer than 24 hours.  The report will be clearly descriptive and easy to understand.  The report can be delivered in a number of ways including Email (pdf), on a CD or hardcopy printout through the mail or hand delivered. 

When you hire me to inspect a dwelling for you, the service will include inspection of the following:

 

  • Exterior Site                                                                                                         
  • Foundations
  • Exterior Structure
  • Roofing & Flashing
  • Gutters & Downspouts
  • Roof Structure
  • Attic & Insulation
  • Roof Ventilation
  •  Basement & Crawlspace
  • Garage/Carport
  • Electrical                                                      
  • Plumbing
  • Central Heating                                                              
  • Central Air Conditioning
  •  Interior                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

 

Home Repair Consultation 

 

 

You can benefit from a Home Repair Consultation.  In this service, I offer a walk through that is meant to point out the more obvious things that should be repaired for the safety and integrity of a home.  The difference between a "Home Inspection" and "Home Repair Consultation" is, the Home Repair Consultation does not include a written report.


The Home Repair Consultation costs less than a full home inspection.  Call me if you are interested in learning more about Home Repair Consultations.  Check the rates page for pricing.

Radon testing

I'm certified by The National Envronmental Health Association - National Radon Proficiency Program.
(NEHA-NRPP), as a radon measurement provider.  I know how to follow proper protocol and get the test done correctly so as not to mis-lead anyone.  Also, I do not service or install any radon mitigation equipment and I'm not affiliated with anyone who does.  I have no reason to inflate test results to try and up sell you other services.

You may want one of these or your bank or mortgage lender may require it.  If so, let me know and I can handle the task.  

 
Environmental reporting services


I am associated with, and certified by a company called Environmental Data Resources, Inc.  This association allows me to deliver a valuable product to the public.  The procuct is a reporting system that lets you be aware of environmental concerns that may exist in close proximity to your home.  For more information, please click on the link and select "residential", then the catagory that applies to you.  You can also call me for more information if you prefer.

 The drywall is detaching from the trusses as seen from this garage attic      Painted over rotten wood rake board      The water temperature produced by the water heater is too hot and can burn skin in a few seconds

Water penatrating the chimney crown leads to damaged masonry      Clogged condensate drain and a lack of proper filter support      This plumbing boot is cracked and will allow water to leak into the attic and house

A plumbing leak under the sink produced this biological growth to form      The finishing of the walls block the left side electrical panel screws preventing inspection      Loose set blocks and wood pieces poorly support this unstable floor beam
