Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until your inspection appointment - after you have hired me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that's certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
This I promise you.
