Residential Home Inspections

I inspect homes as if I am moving my family into them. As a independent sole-proprietor licensed and insured home inspector, I provide my clients with unbiased, accurate, and affordable inspections that enables you to confidently decide on the biggest financial decision you will ever make.

I inspect homes throughout the SW area of Washington State. I only schedule one inspection per day so I can focus on your house, unlike other inspectors who conduct 2-3 inspections per day in less than 2 hours each. I usually take anywhere between 3-4 hours to complete an inspection and have the digital report with pictures to you within 24 hours. 


Inspection Reports

  • After the inspection is completed, a comprehensive narrative digital report with pictures and additional reference materials will be given to you within 24 hours by your home inspector. 

  • Your report will cover the following areas:





Interior, Doors and Windows

Fireplaces, Stoves, Chimneys and Flues

Bathrooms, Laundry and Sinks


Attic and Roof Structure

Garage or Carport

Water Heater

Heating, Ventilation and Cooling


Crawl Space

Electric System

Plumbing System


Manufactured Home Foundation Inspections

 If you are selling or buying a manufactured home, then most likely a foundation certification will be required. For all FHA and VA loans, an engineer's foundation certification is required that states that the home is placed on a permanent foundation that complies with the "HUD Permanent Foundation Guide for Manufactured Homes", dated 1996 by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

We have partnered with the engineers at Foundation Certifications to provide a turn-key foundation certification service to you. You may place your order online by going to
