Introduction: Robert Brkal, Certified Professional Home Inspector NJ Home Inspector License # 24GI00147300 NJ DEP Radon Measurement Technician #MET13538 US EPA Lead Dust Sampling Technician Application#R803342 State of Florida Home Inspector License #HI8851 InterNACHI Member#14112105 Due to the escalation in the cost of fuels and tolls, we do ask for the address of the property that you have requested to be inspected at our first correspondence with you so that we can confirm a firm price quote without any additional surcharges. We are upfront with our inspection fees so what we quote will be what you end up paying. COVID-19 UPDATE: With the Covid-19 global pandemic, above all safety comes first. At Do-Rite Property Inspections, we have completed the COVID-19 safety course through InterNACHI® (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors) and as part of the safety protocol we always wear masks. Gloves and shoe coverings can be worn per client request. Based on your comfort level, please use your discretion on the decision to attend the inspection in person. Typically, we recommend clients attend and we practice social distancing; however, if you do not feel comfortable attending due to the pandemic, we can schedule a phone conference post-inspection to go through the report in detail. BIO: After over 15 years as a licensed REALTOR, I noticed a gap in the market for stellar licensed home inspectors that truly communicate and interact with their clients. In 2014 I decided to couple my knowledge of real estate with my experience in home repairs and embarked on the training and certification to become a licensed home inspector in NJ and Florida. Many of my clients find tremendous value in my real estate industry experience since it gives me a unique understanding of a buyer’s needs, questions, and timeline. I am an active member of InterNACHI®, the world’s leading association for home inspectors. Through InterNACHI, I stay current with continuing education and special training. WHAT TO EXPECT: Ideally, clients should be prepared to attend the home inspection. This allows for us to communicate throughout the inspection and discuss in real time any potential concerns. A few days following the inspection, you will receive a detailed digital report with photos highlight any areas of concern. At this time, most home inspectors consider their job complete. However, this is not the case when you work with us. We are happy to discuss any questions on the report and can schedule a call to discuss in detail. Take comfort that no question that you may ask is silly or insignificant! At the end of it all, you should be able to move forward with confidence about the house you are planning on purchasing. OFFERED EXTRAS: • Radon testing. • Wood destroying organisms inspections. • Thermal imaging to help detect a hidden moisture problem which the naked eye would not be able to see. ** Starting July 22, 2022 Lead Dust Sampling as defined by NJ S1147. THE DO-RITE DIFFERENCE: 1. Size does not matter: We treat you, our client, the same whether it is a 500 sq ft. home or a 5,000 sq ft. home. We take the time to talk and explain any concerns and answer any questions that you may have. 2. We communicate throughout the process and are responsive to calls, texts, and emails 3. Family owned and operated; it is our commitment to treat you like family. Our goal is to help you understand the story of your potential new home and give you the confidence you need to make this important decision on your future home or investment. We always say, “Your home inspection is only as good as your home inspector.” Additional Do-Rite Property Inspections Inspector John Cranwell, Certified Professional Home Inspector NJ Licensed Home Inspector #24GI00188600 Member InterNACHI #20012219 Certified WDO Inspector COVID-19 UPDATE: With the Covid-19 global pandemic, above all safety comes first.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do not have any prices listed online because of the nature of real estate, each property is different from the next. It's not the type of business where one size fits all. I want to be able to quote you a firm price for the inspection. I ask questions about the property as to the location, size of the structure, whether it has a basement, crawl space or is on a slab, the age of the structure, etc. I ask these questions to determined whether I would recommend a radon test, mold testing or have any other concerns which may reflect a change to the quoted price. I have never had to increased any of my inspection quoted fees once given and in fact I have reduced a few of my quoted fees once at the inspection.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    At the property before the inspection, I take a some time so we can get acquainted with one another. During this time I go over what I will be doing over the next few hours in regard to inspecting. I ask you if you have any concerns with the property, something that you want me to address in particular. I want you to feel confident in the process and be involved whether you walk around with me during the inspection or will just wait for the report at the end.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I currently hold state licenses for Home Inspection in both New Jersey and Florida. For my Florida license I was trained by InterNACHI, International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and for my New Jersey license, Inspection21 which is one of only a few state approved schools. In addition to my state licenses I have the following certifications:Radon Measurement Technician, Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspector, Commercial Property Inspector, WDO Inspector (Termite), Indoor Air Consultant with Radon and Mold Endorsements, Mobile/Manufactured Inspector.
