Clarity, transparency, and significant value
We provide explanations in verbal, written, and visual form, not only with our on-site services, but also with the formal report that is provided once the inspection is complete.
There are inspectors who compete solely on the basis of price, ready to offer services at a low rate. Our value equation is determined by high-quality and value, both with our expertise and delivery.
A realtors’ job is to sell a property, and a home inspectors job is to describe the defects without emotion and conflict. The goal is to describe the home to the greatest extent possible, good or bad. This provides the transparency needed to make a sound transaction.
As an engineer, Michael always wants to understand the underlying reasons as to why something performs or underperforms. Engaging in this critical thinking, allows for excellent defect recognition skills that provides an outstanding service.
Added Value for the Best Service
Rates are independent of location
We do not charge for extra mileage, unlike many other home inspectors.
Typically, infrared thermography is outside the scope of a home inspection, however we proudly utilize this technology for no extra fee to provide you with much needed added insight.
High quality reports
Our reports are heavy on photography and minimal with text without the use of jargon. Our conclusions tell what the problem is, whether it’s minor or major, and how soon it needs to be addressed.
