Please check out my resume. You get what you pay for and you get (a lot) less for less. I have a sign on the back of my truck that says: Hindsight is 20/20. In our business knowledge is gained by our experience in performing inspections in the past (problems we’ve found and problems we’ve missed). Our hindsight is sharpened by the number of inspections we’ve performed. Since 1983 we’ve inspected more than 8000 homes. More importantly it’s a communications process where issues are put into perspective (without any special interests). All houses have issues. More information helps you: make better decisions, plan the future, and make a better return on your investment.
Less experienced inspectors have lower fees and usually don’t take the time or have the expertise to help you resolve the issues that are discovered during an inspection. If you are considering another inspector who is not personally a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), then you are short-changing yourself. The experience and qualifications of you inspector will save you much more than the cost of the inspection.

The report: Every house is unique. I do not use a standardized format that most inexperienced home inspectors purchase. I do use a highly modifiable narrative template that I've created and modified based on the knowledge I've gained in performing inspections and communicating with clients during the past 30 years. I include a lot of photos. The "disclaimer language" in the report is mostly that required by our state licensing board or the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). The final report is designed to be uncomplicated and straight forward in communicating all types of information unique to the house that is inspected. It is also designed to prioritize issues as much as possible so that my clients have a better understanding about the strengths and weaknesses of what they are buying (or selling). The report is designed to be a useful tool and reference document in communicating and assisting my clients, real estate agents and building trades specialists during the mediation and resolution of issues. Reports are usually communicated to my client next day via email in a pdf format.
