Introduction: You're the kind of person that appreciates the value of knowledge. You know there are risks involved in making such a large investment. You know that knowledge is your greatest asset in making a wise decision. My business is assisting people like you in the purchase of their home. How? By delivering the knowledge that a professional Home Inspector (Building Inspector) can provide. Additional Home Inspection services we offer such as: Home Inspection Radon Testing Mold Testing Carbon Monoxide Testing Infrared Thermal Imaging are all designed to help you completely understand the property you're considering. We perform Home Inspections on residential homes, New Construction, manufactured homes, condo's, apartments, multi-family and even mobile homes. I enjoy the Inspection (exploring) of their new home. It can be exciting and fun for client and myself.

Ted Nelson is professional and friendly in just the right measure. He discovered something about the home we were going to purchase that we would have never guessed. We did not purchase the home because of it. His report was thorough and fair. He stood by his work even when challenged by the sellers Realtor. If Ted had been less knowledgeable and confident in his work, we would have purchased a home that was much less valuable than we were led to believe. We would have had some serious buyers remorse. We were more than happy with Teds service; he went above and beyond what you expect from people these days. And we will heed Teds advise in the future get the home inspected BEFORE you put in an offer! It wasn't easy to break the contract.

We were very impressed by Ted. He was prompt, did a very detailed job, showed us the defects in the house, explained the problems and also let us know approximately how much would it cost to fix those problems. We actually inspected the house before we made an offer. Ted's detailed pdf (electronic document) report which included pictures of all the defects and which he emailed within a day of the inspection, helped us make an offer on the house with confidence. We highly recommend him for home inspections Linga R

Thanks to Criterion I know everything that's wrong with the property and will use the report as a to-do-list. Ted did a great job of explaining the major problems and a potential cure. I new I had some major problems, however as we proceeded thru the inspection, like a puzzle, we put the pieces together to see how the problems occurred. Great job!" Len D

I also keep up with the latest technical tools available to the Home Inspection trade.
