My standard home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the home’s visible and accessible structure, systems and components, both inside and out. I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.
Your same-day inspection report will include digital color photos of any defects I discover, checklists, and an easy-to-read summary page. Videos are available for sewer and duct scope inspections.
I want you to feel confident about your home purchase or sale, so my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in your report.

The Home Energy eBook is included with your Home Energy ReportTM.

Are your sinks and tubs emptying too slowly? I will use a special camera to scope your sewer to visualize any blockages that are interfering with your plumbing system’s proper drainage. Finding and addressing such problems now can head off catastrophic and expensive repairs later.
Are your water bills unusually high? Do you find yourself frequently refilling your swimming pool? Let me check your property for underground plumbing leaks. I can evaluate in-slab and in-ground exterior areas using a ground probe, listening device, and thermal camera to identify the location of leaks and help you devise an action plan to fix them.
If your house uses a radiant floor heating system, I will check it for functionality and efficiency by mapping out your home using both a digital camera and state-of-the-art thermal imaging equipment, then evaluate the images and pinpoint any problems.
If your home is plagued by unwanted odors, such as those caused by smokers, pets, and even musty mildew, let me use my Ozone Treatment System to rid your house of these pervasive smells and improve its indoor air quality. I’ll use a professional, commercial-grade ozone generator to purify your home’s air. My four-hour treatment can also effectively kill airborne mold spores before they settle on surfaces and become a difficult-to-remove threat to your family’s health.
