Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort and utilization of available technology. - Brad M.
I have over decade of experience as a warranty writer and inspector within the commercial, new home and renovation industry. I partnered with contractors and new home manufacturers, under the following umbrella companies; ICI Paints, Akzo Nobel and PPG Industries. My coatings inspections (typically warranty assessments) uncovered common structural issues, such as; roof and plumbing leaks, a lack of insulation or proper venting or a lack of an appropriate moisture barriers and so on. These often resulted in an increase in mold and mildew issues as well as WDO(Wood Destroying Organisms) problems. In prior experience as well as growing up, I worked alongside my father... He was a contractor/inspector and full rehab specialist. This is where I learned even though more often than not, it seems these days, hard work is under appreciated and so is what it means to do things right the first time.
Based on this experience, each home inspection also tells a story. I have created a custom reporting method that assists you by giving you power of negotiation. typically range from 15 to 30 pages. You will find a clickable table of contents and photo details that follow a narrative, with ease, on your computer, phone or tablet. As the report outlines each function of the home, you will not find yourself struggling to navigate back and forth throughout the document trying to find a category of desired information. Also, my report includes a one-page summary of the inspection site and a checklist separating major issues (Safety Hazards) from minor issues or maintenance (General Upkeep) . I would appreciate an opportunity to work for you or your client assisting with the home buying experience.
