Home Inspections


I follow a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I’ll inspect the visible and accessible structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology. Following my evaluation, I’ll compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and digital photos embedded in the report of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll deliver your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it. Our home inspections also include a free 100-page home maintenance book free of charge.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspection

Annual Home Inspector

A lot happens over the course of a year and it is important to understand how the conditions of your home and property have changed as the seasons come and go. All homeowners should anticipate that their home will eventually require maintenance. It is crucial to be aware of maintenance concerns before costly issues emerge. By having an annual maintenance inspection, we help you get out in front of any potential issues and save time, money and hassle as a result. We will perform a home maintenance inspection to assess the overall condition of your home and essential mechanical components. A detailed report will be generated for you to review and make well-informed decisions on how to best maintain your home. A home maintenance book with accompanying seasonal checklists will be included free of charge for your convenience.

Radon Testing (For Homes and well water)


Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. For the wellbeing of you and your family, we recommend having your home and well water tested for the presence of Radon.

Mold Inspection

Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection


I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. By evaluating the 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 pest and rodent infestations, and flue leaks in the chimney.

Water Quality Testing

water quality

Let me test your potable water supply, especially if your property has a private well, cistern or septic system. Upon request, water samples may be collected and sent to labs for analysis; the water will be assessed for coliform and other harmful bacteria, which can endanger your family’s health.

WDO (Wood-Destroying Organism) Inspection


Our WDO (Wood-Destroying Organism) inspection service provides a thorough assessment of residential or commercial properties to identify and evaluate the presence of wood-destroying insects, such as termites, beetles, carpenter ants, and fungi that can cause structural damage. Our trained and certified inspectors conduct a comprehensive examination of the property, including the interior, exterior, crawl spaces, attics, and basements, using advanced techniques and tools. During the inspection, our experts examine visible and accessible areas, searching for signs of infestation, such as discarded wings, mud tubes, damaged wood, and hollow-sounding timber. We also assess the moisture levels, ventilation, and other conditions that may contribute to the risk of wood damage.

Moisture Inspection

Moisture meters can help to detect and quantify the amount of moisture is actually in a building material. I may use a moisture meter to check areas around plumbing pipes, air conditioning units, bathroom toilets and showers, and at wooden components near or in contact with the ground surface. Appliances may cause water leaks or cause condensation problems may result in elevated levels of moisture. A professional inspector with a moisture meter is equipped to find the source of moisture and water problems in a house. Once discovered, all moisture intrusion problems must be immediately corrected before mold growth develops.

Roof Inspection


Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? Many inspectors choose not to physically walk the roof surface, we disagree. We will inspect your roof covering by physically walking the roof surface if accessible. I can also conduct a standalone roof inspection. A roof inspection includes assessing the roof covering, flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other roof penetrations.

Chimney & Fireplace Inspection

Chimney Inspector Logo

A level-one chimney inspection includes a visual check of the fireplace and chimney without any special equipment. If accessible, the inspector will physically walk the roof surface to inspect the chimney up close. The inspector will come to your house with a flashlight; look for damage, obstructions, creosote buildup, and soot; and inform you if the chimney requires sweeping.

Deck Inspection

Deck Inspector Logo

A deck inspection should progress in much the same order as deck construction. Inspectors should start at the bottom. If a deck is deemed unsafe from underneath, the inspector should not walk out onto the deck to inspect decking, handrails, etc. The inspector should stop and report the safety issues

Heating & Air Conditioning Inspection


We will inspect the HVAC unit(s) and related components of a home which are visible and accessible during our inspection and describe and report upon the conditions and need for correction. This inspection includes inspecting the heating and cooling system using normal operating controls. We will also inspect the visible and accessible ventilation and distribution conditions and condenser unit conditions.

Electrical System Inspection

An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components (such as appliances) meet legal safety standards.

Plumbing Inspection

We will inspect the plumbing components of a home which are visible and accessible during our inspection and describe and report upon the conditions and need for correction. This inspection includes the main water supply, interior water supply including fixtures, faucets, showers, and toilets. The water heating equipment, shut-off valves, sump pump, and drain, waste and vent conditions are also inspected.

4-Point Inspection

Four Point Inspector Logo

Many insurance companies require this inspection for older homes. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition.

New Construction Inspection

new construction

Are you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.

Pre-Drywall Inspection


One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make.

Repair Verification / Follow-up Inspection

Repair Verification

Have you had remodeling or repair work done by a contractor to address a deficiency, or to adapt or modernize some structure or system of your home? I will inspect it to make sure that the materials, installation and workmanship meet quality standards and your specifications. This is not a code-compliance inspection, but an inspection to check that the work was completed properly.
