Home Inspector


For most people, a home is their most costly investment and their most valuable asset, which is why a comprehensive home inspection is a necessary part of the home buying procedure. Hiring the services of a qualified home inspection professional could save buyers a fortune by discovering deficiencies that otherwise may not be found until it is too late.

Specifically, home inspectors evaluate the soundness of newly built or previously owned homes, condominiums, town houses, manufactured homes, residential apartments, and at times commercial buildings and structures. Their services are required either prior to a purchase offer on a home or as a contingency to a sales contract. Faulty foundations, structural problems, poor insulation, ventilation deficiencies, weakened roof structure and inadequate plumbing installation are just a few of hundreds of potential problems that must be exposed prior to making an offer.

Other considerations include: building safety hazards involving electrical wiring, fireplaces, chimneys, furnaces, decks, railings, water heaters, gas leaks and other potentially dangerous situations. The home inspector’s diligence and professionalism enables prospective homebuyers to make informed decisions. Their expertise can help homebuyers avoid considerable financial loss and years of unfortunate regret.

Our mission is to train and enable you to both start and operate your own successful home inspection business or to be a significant contributor in an established company.
