What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Full home inspection pricing is based on the square footage of the home, age of the home. Termite inspections scheduled for an additional $40. No hidden fees or add ons. Pool, spa and irrigation inspections at no extra cost.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a certified member of NACHI (National Assocation of Certified Home Inspectors) and we are required to complete 26 hours of continuing education yearly.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have a background in home construction, remodeling and repair work. After having a home inspection done on a rental unit, I became very interested in the home inspection process and felt that my knowledge could help others.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common type of job that I do is a Full home inspection for a client buying a new or resale home. I also provide New Construction inspections, Builder Warranty Inspections, Seller Inspections and Home Check Up/Maintenance Inspections.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Call at least three different home inspection companies or home inspectors to get a quote, but also discuss with them how and what they inspect. Do they walk roofs? Do they open the main electrical panel? Do they go up into the attic and inspect duct work, insulation and roof trusses? Not all home inspectors are created equal.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I want my clients to know that I work very hard to give them a detailed, honest report on their prospective home purchase. I understand that it is a very big investment for them and it is important for them to know the true condition of the home.
