Big purchase... Big decision. Who is going to be your home inspector. I am an"A+" rated member of the Better Business Bureau. I belong to A.S.H.I. (American Society of Home Inspectors). A great home inspector will take the time to answer all of your questions and will also give you advice on the upkeep of the home. I always point out deferred maintanence and include it in the report. It makes a great checklist of items that need attention after you move in.

A lot of information will be given to you at the site inspection. An inspector that takes time when they reconcile the report is of utmost importance. The report will be your main tool in negotiating and remembering what was told to you at the inspection. My reports have color photographs with detailed descriptions next to the issues noted. Some people ask why you put detailed descriptions in. Not only does it help you it helps me. Phone calls dont need to be made back and forth trying to figure out what the inspector means regarding items in the report. This allows me more time doing what I do best... inspecting houses.

Communication is another key asset a home inspector needs. If they can't talk to you about the home in a way that you understand it they aren't helping you. Some people have a good understanding of homes, others know very little. It is the home inspectors job to establish what level of knowledge you are at and be able to communicate to you in terms you understand. I have heard many customers who chose me on their second inspection instead of using the inspector that did their previous inspection, often times they didn't like the personality of their previous home inspector. With me you are going to get a down to earth family guy who is easy to get along with and is a professional.

I hope I can help you out with your home inspection needs. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call.

Lanny: It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday. You took your job seriously. A thorough inspection was done prior to our arrival, as is evidenced by the report you prepared. We were both very impressed. Our questions and concerns were addressed and recommendations were made. Your polite, patient attitude was greatly appreciated. Your advice as to what to address in the house for the future were well thought out and will be kept for future attention. Jerome and I are unfamiliar with the construction of homes. When we are greeted by someone who does know, and he then takes the time to check out our new home, it gives us peace of mind in going forward with the purchase. Thank you very much.

We had a great experience with Lanny on a currently unliveable foreclosed home. He was thorough, explaining areas of concern and repair, and also pointing out areas where we should consult an expert (i.e. electrician, structural engineer, etc.). I was pleasantly surprised that his highly detailed inspection report was delivered to me via email within 5 hours of leaving the property, complete with color photos and arrows pointing to concerns. I would definitely recommend him for your home inspection.
