If you ended up here, you've probably seen several inspector websites and we all claim to be very professional and highly trained. Any home inspector will have all of the same certificates that come from being state licensed. Most of us become inspectors because of some area of expertise in one or more home systems.
I'm really not much different, besides my training in home inspections, my secular training comes in the way of building maintenance and power systems. I have achieved the level of 3rd Class Power Engineer. What that really means is two years of schooling at a Technical Institute and several years of experience in power, heating, plumbing and electrical systems. I am licensed to operate 34 million BTU power systems (average home heating system is 60,000 - 100,000).
When I was younger, I worked many of the trades, including; roofing, drywall, pipefitting and HVAC. I have renovated several homes for resale and spent five years in Ocala, with my wife, upgrading a Historic Inn that was built in the 1950's. If the house you are looking at has an issue, I've seen it before and most likely fixed it myself.
What all this means is that when I find a problem with the home of your dreams, I will not break your heart. I've seen the same things many times before and I will help you to see what the defect is and I will help you understand what you need to do to remedy the situation.
There are many very qualified inspectors, and I am one of them. If you honor me with your trust, I promise to do my very best to inspect your home to the best of my ability and I promise to share my knowledge and experience to help you understand your new home.
