Why did you decide to become a home inspector?

SE: “As an engineer, I’ve always been interested in how things work – I really enjoy being able to dissect something technical to gain a better understanding of it. Home Inspection bridges my engineering mind with my passion for homes, and being able to share my findings with clients is so rewarding.”

What’s the one thing you wish every homeowner knew?

SE: “I wish every homeowner understood the importance of taking care of simple maintenance items around their home, like caulking and grouting. Performing tasks like these can prolong the components of your house at a very low cost. The Home Reference Books is a great way to get to know your home, especially when it comes to recommended maintenance items.”

What is the most surprising thing you’ve uncovered during a home inspection?

SE: “During a Thermal Imaging Inspection of a very recently built home I discovered water directly under the master bathroom’s whirlpool tub. With newer homes it is very easy to expect the majority of items to be functioning well, and the fact that there was no visible indication of a moisture issue made the infrared camera’s findings surprising.”

What Our Clients Say

  • The inspector was very thorough and took the time to explain everything; the value-added extras such as the report on the school district, drug house check, and recalled appliance checks were invaluable added surprises.

    M.J.; Homebuyer

  • The overview is a great idea, clearly identifies what the homeowner needs to focus on first. The breakdown of the report is great. Going section by section I can clearly see each component with the recommendations including diagrams and pictures of my personal home. The report looks great and is easy to read. It’s very useful having this document knowing that I can refer to it at any time in the future should an issue arise with my house.

    M.S.; Homeowner

  • Quick, easy to book, knowledgeable inspectors, great service from customer service team, quick turnaround, extensive reports with all the details in an easy to read location. Also, strength of the brand. Always a trusted source.
