As a first-time homebuyer, I highly recommend Alan at Vertex! He's professional, efficient and extremely knowledgable. He gave tips along the way and answered ALL of our questions (and we had lots of questions!) Would recommend Vertex to anyone in need of a highly qualified home inspector! If I could give more stars in my rating, I would!!Mar 3, 2016
Alan did a home inspection for a home my wife and I are purchasing. He knew his stuff and took time to explain everything. He walked us through the house and explained everything in detail of what wasn't up to par I would highly recommend Vertex to any friend or family! The best home inspection experience we could of ever asked for.Feb 15, 2015Verified
I am a Realtor and did hire him for a mold inspection but my client backed out of the deal before we got to work together. In his introduction to me he was responsive, informative and helpful. I felt I couldn't rate him a 5 since I hadn't actually had him do the work, but I do like his attitude and what he had to say!Nov 7, 2014VerifiedVertex Home Inspection LLC's reply
Thanks for the kind words. I hope we get to work together soon.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Membership in InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors) requires continuing education annually for a membership to remain in good standing. Our National Radon Proficiency Program listing requires 16 hours of Continuing education each year as well. This is hugely important in this business. We are constantly taking refresher courses and focus courses to provide a better service.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I really enjoy learning everything about everything, and a home has a huge variety of interesting systems and construction techniques. I have experience remodeling homes, and enjoy carpentry as an art, so inspecting homes allows me to use those skills to help others make a proper decision when it comes to home purchase. I really wanted to offer a competent and honorable service that people can rely on.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure you verify that the inspector is certified by a respectable trade organization like InterNACHI, that requires certain education, experience, and continuing education, to ensure that you find a qualified Inspector. Since licensing isn't required in Virginia, this is really your only assurance that the inspector is properly trained.
