Why is a home inspection important for me?
When purchasing or selling a home or investment property, an impartial, unbiased report of all the structural or pest issues that may be present, will give you knowledge and empower you to make the best decisions. With that, you have piece of mind knowing your home is as safe, energy efficient and structurally-up-to-date as it can be. Now, and in the future.
What does a home inspection entail?
With a keen eye for detail, we will inspect the home’s structure, construction and mechanical systems. We will identify anything that needs repair or replacing and give you an estimate on the remaining life of any other parts of the home.
An inspection typically starts outside, with everything from property drainage, the outside structure to exterior paint, walls and any sticky doors that are tough to open. We’ll evaluate the gutters, check the roof, siding and any issues with that garage floor.
On the inside, we will look at everything from electrical and HVAC systems, to furnace and water heater lifespan. We’ll take a look at leaky faucets, vents, cracked tiles in the kitchen and things like house ventilation and make any suggested recommendations. Let’s not forget about the crawl space and attic! In our Pacific Northwest climate it’s imperative that those spaces are checked for signs of mold, leaks or moisture collection.

What experience do you have?
I've been in thousands of homes – most of the time while saving lives. My number one priority is going above and beyond expectation. I've lived a life of service, both in the air force and as a firefighter. No job is too small for me.
