Our Approach

The purpose of a home inspection is to provide the consumer with comprehensive information to help them make a confident and informed decision when buying a home.

As we complete your home inspection we have two main goals: first, to inform you about the status of the structure and systems of the home and secondly, to explain the future maintanence needs of the home.

For most of us a house purchase is the largest monetary investment we will ever make. Our job is to help you understand as much as possible about this investment
