When I purchased my first home in 1984 I didn’t know anything about houses or how they worked. I was so excited I couldn’t believe it. My wife and I actually owned a home! And what a home it was. I began to realize over time that not all was well with our home. Every single time we started even the simplest of repairs, it turned into a major construction project costing more than we could have ever imagined. Not knowing what to look out for, or knowing the warning signs cost us plenty. After fixing that home up we were able to build our own home. This time I made sure that it was done right.
For 18 years working in the Civil Engineering and Surveying fields and12 years as a Licensed Builder, I have been able to help hundreds of home buyers, owners and developers with their needs.
My mission is to help homebuyers and sellers better understand their homes, plan for their future and enjoy their new homes.
I am the owner and you deal directly with me. If you have any questions regarding your inspection you have direct access to me, anytime. Knowing about the home you are buying is paramount when planning your future.
My job is to report what I find… Period…
I only work for you. The purchase of your new home is a serious and important decision. It can also be very emotional. The home inspection you are considering is the best way to have an impartial third party look at your new home.
