What We Inspect and Why
A home inspection is a visual examination of the home's major structure, systems, and components that are visible and safely accessible. Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make, so it's important to get a home inspection because the inspector can find and document defects that may or may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer. Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs to severe damage or safety and health concerns.
Interior, exterior, walls, windows, and doors
HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)
Basement, crawlspace, and structure
Roof and attic
Meet Your Inspector
My background might be a bit different than many other home inspectors. I worked as a plumber’s helper when I was a kid because my father owned a plumbing business. The things I learned helping my dad on residential and commercial plumbing sites has stayed with me throughout my life. Then, as an adult, I became a police officer in a large city in Southeast Florida. I have bought and sold many homes and I am familiar with the process.
To earn extra money, I worked for a General Contractor during the day while working as a police officer at night. For this contractor, I performed plumbing repairs and installations, and worked as an apprentice doing construction and remodeling. I did this for about 10 years. When the building and plumbing with the contractor was slow, I worked for myself doing plumbing repairs for my family, coworkers and other close associates.
With my background and experience in plumbing, building, remodeling, and of course police work, it should be no surprise that I know how to do an investigation an prepare written reports. I am very familiar with just about every aspect of a home. I do not claim or pretend to know everything, but I certainly know how to find information about things I need clarification on.
