We also use drones to view roofs and chimney tops for damage or needed repairs. We have built a strong reputation within the real estate industry as being honest and fair.

The best way to describe what we do as home inspectors is... A home inspector is like a general practitioner, when you are not feeling well you go and see your primary care doctor who does an "inspection" physical of you and your systems, finds out what is wrong, then recommends the proper specialist for you to see to correct the issue. We, as home inspectors, do a complete "physical" evaluation of the structure and systems of the home your looking to purchase finding things that are damaged, defective, unsafe, or failing. We then recommend the specialist that can correct those issues found. We do not offer costs of repairs because prices can vary from company to company. We do recommend consulting with at least 3 different companies from that field getting quotes and recommendations before making a choice on the company to perform the repair.
