My home inspections are a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home. I am licensed in the state of Washington through training, testing, and certifications. I am a certified Home Inspector for the largest association of inspectors: InterNACHI. I prepare and deliver to the client a written, contemporary report of my findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase.

This is what I can do for you:
(not a bullet-point list. I don't like those!)
As a licensed inspector, I feel a little like Sherlock Homes. I find defects and then search for the source. A leak can start at the roof and gravity moves moisture downwards, sometimes as far as the crawlspace or basement. My experience helps me zero in on anomalies within the patterns of the home. I may spend more time than some inspectors. I want to be thorough. I love this job so you get enthusiasm! It is going to be an Awesome Day!
I am a licensed structural pest inspector or SPI. This means I have experience in identifying insects that destroy wood. Is it a Carpenter Ant or ant damage? Is that a mud tube for Subterranean Termites? Ever heard of the Anobiid Beatle? They are prevalent in the crawlspaces where high humidity can draw them in and rip up the structural foundations. They leave piles of frass. You can hire me to create a separate report dedicated to the insect inspection of the home you want to buy, for a loan or other reasons. Yet I will still inspect for insect problems as part of the normal home inspection price. Let’s hope there are none!
Wells are important! Knowing that you are moving into a home where well water that has no Coliform Bacteria, Arsenic, Lead, Nitrates or Uranium, helps you feel confident in the drinking water. Also, how many gallons per minute (GPM) does the well produce? Good question! I can test for that. I can help you know the strength of the well.
Radon testing? I can do that.
Mold testing? I can swab test and I can also sample the air at a quick turnaround for the lab results.
Thermal camera? I have one and if I feel there are possible moisture problems, use this camera to enhance my findings along with moisture meters. This is free! Helps me find the extent of where that moisture is and how far it has traveled. This makes it into the report.
I used to be a professional photographer so your images, I think will be a step up from the normal inspectors.
Commercial property? I got you covered. If the project is large, I will hire a team of experts to get the job done quickly and correctly, combining all findings into one report.
I know you will find me interesting, upbeat and contemporary. My reports are image filled with some videos if needed. They are easy to understand.
Hire me and you will think “Awesome!”
