One of Nonprofit Home Inspection’s lead Portland home inspectors is Charles Lewis. Charles is an Oregon Certified Home Inspector (# 1740), a Washington Licensed Home Inspector (# 1561) and a licensed general contractor (CCB # 204515). Charles has over 15 years of construction experience ranging from working his way through college as a construction surveyor in Alaska to serving as the general contractor for a $4 million community center. Over the years, Charles has built houses from the ground up, remodeled existing homes, renovated churches and community centers, installed rainwater cisterns, built ecoroofs, and even installed wind turbines among many other activities. Because of the breadth of his construction experiences, Charles has a firm understanding of modern building science and is able to give comprehensive, experience-based home inspection reports that are easy to understand.
Charles earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Portland and a master’s degree from Harvard University.
Charles decided to become a licensed home inspector in order to help protect families from unknown hazards in the homes. When he was growing up, Charles’ single mother purchased a “fixer upper” that needed a lot of work. Raising 6 kids mostly by herself by working as a waitress, Charles’ mother wasn’t able to afford a proper home inspection. Years later, she was diagnosed with mesothelioma because of exposure to asbestos. Within a month of being diagnosed, she passed away from an easily preventable hazard. Not wanting other families to go through similar ordeals, Charles created Nonprofit Home Inspections to elevate the level of home inspections by training better home inspectors and by making home inspections available to everyone in the community. In addition to establishing a state licensed trade school for home inspectors, Nonprofit Home Inspections’ services are offered on a sliding scale so that everyone can afford to have their own home inspection. By using Nonprofit Home Inspections for your own home inspection, you are helping to create healthy homes for some of Oregon and Washington’s most vulnerable populations.

Hey, my name is Bob Clark
My favorite part of owning and operating a home inspection business is building the business!
I love building an online presence, creating a brand on the Internet and on Social Media.
I did all this myself and I want to teach you how to do it!
Who am I?
As a Seattle Home Inspector, I am committed to bringing all my years of experience, as well as my continuing education regarding home construction practices, to bear, in assisting the Home Buyer/Seller with their Home purchase/sale.
It is my intention that the Home Buyer/Seller have an accurate, “snap-shot” of the major components of the Home, thus assisting them in making an informed decision. While based in Seattle/Shoreline WA, I inspect homes all over Western Washington State, including King County, Snohomish County and sometimes even Pierce County. Some of the cities I commonly get to are Everett, Lynnwood, Bothel, Kenmore, Kent, SeaTac, Bellevue, Kirkland—-and many others. Some buyers have referred to my inspection reports as “beginning” owner’s manuals for their home.
Business & Inspection Experience
I have been designing and building residential structures for over 35 years.
Previous to becoming a Home Inspector in 2004, I was a “hands-on” general contractor and I was actively involved in all aspects of residential construction. As a designer and a builder, I had to keep up-to-date in all the trades involved in this work: foundations, framing, electrical, plumbing, insulation, drywall, siding, roofing etc. My specialties have been kitchen design, second story additions, whole house remodels, and new passive solar houses—-including composting toilets and wood foundations.
I currently sit on the Home Inspector Licensing Advisory Board of the State of Washington.
I am also on the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) technical review committee at the National level and served as chair of the committee for 2016.
I am a Graduate of Bellingham Technical College, Bellingham, Wa., Residential Home Inspection Course (160 hours), and I am currently an instructor with this program. This course is approved by the State of Washington for Home Inspector Education as preparation for new inspector licensing.
I am a Member of ASHI, (American Society of Home Inspectors), Member #246514.
I am a Licensed Washington State Home Inspector, #220
I am a Licensed Structural Pest Inspector, WSDA #67488

Reuben is a second-generation home inspector with a passion for his work. He grew up remodeling homes and learning about carpentry since he was old enough to hold a hammer. Reuben has worked for Structure Tech since it was purchased in 1997 and is now the owner and President of the company.
Reuben grew up thinking he was going to be a school teacher because he enjoyed teaching others so much. In a sense, that’s a lot of what home inspections are about, so Reuben truly does what he loves. Reuben teaches continuing education classes to real estate agents throughout the Twin Cities, and rarely does home inspections alone anymore; almost every home inspection is conducted with an apprentice home inspector by his side.
Reuben has an A.A. degree in liberal arts and has attended most of the Building Inspection Technology classes at North Hennepin Community College.
Reuben and his wife are the proud parents of two young children, Cy Alexander and Lucy Nicole. With two young children, Reuben doesn’t have much free time but he still tries to play disc golf as often as possible during the summer.
