Need more reasons to choose us?


All our reports are reviewed by an engineer.

We use our building science knowledge not only to find deficiencies but also to advise you on avoiding future issues.

We have no hidden fees.  Other home inspectors charge extra or don't have the experience or capability for certain services which we include in our price (i.e. Termites), which we consider to be essential to a thorough home inspection.
