EIFS (we inspect EIFS at a visual level only, no probing. click to learn more)

Aerial inspections  

If the roof is too high or too steep, I have a drone.  My Drone can also provide you with a alternate perspective on the property your looking at as well as the surrounding properties.


Inspections start at $350.00 for homes up to 2500 sq ft. built on a concrete slab foundation.  3-4 four hours on site would be needed for this size inspection.


Crawlspaces add to the fee,  depending on size and access.

Pools are additional, with price depending on complexity.

I offer Home Inspection everyday,

including Saturdays and Sundays.

When choosing a home inspector, it should not be about the price, instead it should be about the Home Inspector.

Home Inspector level of experience, education and qualifications make a difference to help you make one of the most important decisions of your life.
