With over 10,000 inspections performed through Lee and Collier counties, the owner of Slab-2-Shingles’ provides a        FREE walk-through service after the S2S inspection has been performed.  We want to ensure your satisfaction and safety.  We also want to prevent any future headache you might encounter from a particular repair that may have not been executed properly. We truly value customer care and teamwork.

As a family-owned business, our Home Watch Division is led by certified and fully-trained experts.  A 28-point check list will be walked through once every week. If any problems are encountered during a visitation, the property owner is immediately contacted and we move forward to resolve the issue.  A simple fix such as a flat tire on a car in an owner’s garage could be a huge headache for someone coming down to Florida for a couple months for rest and relaxation. Our professionals take care of any issue, big or small, so your clients’ can have peace of mind throughout their stay.

In addition to Home Inspection and Home Watch, we offer a variety of additional services.  Air Quality – remediation of Chinese drywall, mold, radon and even lead – can be of concern. Our expert team of inspectors clearly define any problem areas and go back over the property once remediated. Again, our main goal is to ensure your peace of mind.

Your best interests are priority #1 This business is my life’s passion and, as your independent inspector I understand your time is very valuable and you have a lot at stake. You know why you need a inspection, but the real question is who should you hire.

With a background in property investment, renovations and inspections, rest assured that I have years of experience, which enables me to help you make critical decisions. My reports are concise and easy to understand, and include photos and detailed descriptions of the defects I discover.

Knowledge is key to real estate transactions and savvy people like yourself understand this. What most people don’t know is not all home inspectors are equally trained. Without a doubt I am comfortable educating you about the home and its various systems. That’s why I strongly recommend that you attend your inspection. It will take anywhere from 2.5 to 7 hours, depending on the size and condition of the property. I’ll discuss my process and findings with you, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.
