If you are in the process of soliciting an inspector for your next purchase or construction related concern, it is vital that you understand their background and ability to identify and convey defects. The antiquated, checkbox report performed by the family friend with a flashlight and screwdriver is history. Today's clients require more information about today's sophisticated building products and all inspectors are not created equal. I've renovated over 20 homes, helped build my own, am routinely hired to help consult with clients starting new construction projects from scratch. You want an inspector who has walked the walk.
In 2006/7 I became certified in energy auditing in order to better understand how houses perform with the myriad of materials and components that are available today. Additionally, I obtained my thermography/infrared certification through the nation's leading educator, Snell Infrared. I routinely work with extremely competent HVAC contractors to further my education about the number one complaint during energy assessments – HVAC delivery. I have been performing building inspections professionally since 2007 and in the industry since 1999. With several thousand inspections, moisture intrusion and energy surveys under my belt I have seen almost everything there is regarding construction and inspecting.
If you have any questions about the inspection process, feel free to reach me to discuss. I've built our business on timely communication, extremely thorough and accurate inspections and assessments, and have remained busy through lean segments of the market. I love helping people make informed, and better, decisions about the properties in consideration for purchase or improvement.
