Why did you decide to become a home inspector?

WC: “I’ve always had an interest in construction, science, and how things work. Becoming a Home Inspector gave me the opportunity to work in a field that I find interesting. It also gives me a chance to educate people on a lot of things regarding the house as a system – eliminate some of the intimidation that people have about how things work and explain why things are built the way they are.”

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

WC: “Homeowners should try to understand as much as they can about their homes. They need to regularly educate themselves on how things work and not be intimidated by technical aspects of the home.”

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

WC: “In one home I was inspecting I found that a corner of the foundation had cracked. The house was literally tearing itself apart and sliding down a hill. You could stick your arm into these cracks, they were so large.”

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.
