Home Inspector Certifications
We Cover All of Your Inspection Needs
Standard Home Inspection
I’ll inspect the structure, systems, and components of the house, inside and out—from the foundation to the roof—using the latest tools and technology.
I highly encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.
Thermal Imaging Inspection
I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors.
By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pests and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney—which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning
Pool & Spa Inspections
Your pool and spa require proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy them for years to come. Your pool maintenance professional is only responsible for your pool’s chemistry and cleanliness. Using a comprehensive checklist, I will inspect your pool and spa for all the other items that will ensure their proper condition and function, as well as your family’s safety.
New Home Inspection
After your home is built, I will inspect it to confirm that the work was done properly and according to your specifications and contract. I will help you devise a punch list for your contractor of any missing or deficient items before you issue final payment.
Annual Maintenance Inspection
This inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let me help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues and educating you about what should be done to keep your home in top condition year-round.
Investment Property Inspection
If you’re investing in a rental property or a second or vacation home, this inspection covers the same items that are evaluated in my Standard Home Inspection, and will help you budget for any necessary repairs and upgrades due to deferred maintenance, age, and other issues.
