I've done home inspections for over eight years and I've been in the construction industry for over forty years. I have repairied many homes that have failed various inspections. I do a thorough inspection in a proffesional manner.


Thanks Jim! I had a great time with you today looking at the house. We appreciate all your insight!

We are so glad that we used Jim for our home inspection. He was so thorough and explained everything so well. He did 2 home inspections for us. He answered all of our questions in detail and made sure we understood what we would need to do to keep the home in tip-top shape. The best part is that when we were talking with Jim, he was so personable that it felt like we were just talking to a friend. I definitely will recommend him to all of my friends and family the next time they need to get a home inspection done!

Thanks Jim for taking the time to explain the inspection process to me and walking me through the house to show me what you found. I also wanted to say thanks for hanging out with my realtor and I as we tried to get the keys out of my locked truck.

I appreciate Jim's initiative to walk me through the property to designate the property defects that he noted in his report. He is not only apt in his field, but also demonstrated technical knowledge pertinent to my questions. Jim was punctual and preempted my need for a hard copy of the inspection; he came prepared with a color printer. I received a digital, online version of the inspection within an hour of departing! Jim is professional and friendly. I will recommend him every chance I get. Thank you, Jim!
