Residental Home Inspections

"Code" is the bare minimum requirement for builders. I only schedule one inspection per day so I can focus on your house, unlike other inspectors who conduct 2-3 inspections per day. I usually take anywhere between 3-4 hours to complete an inspection and have the report to you within 24 hours. So if you are quoted by another inspector that will do it under 2 hours or getting report on site, you are getting the bare minimum inspection, if that.

As a independent licensed and certified inspection company, 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.


Inspection Reports

  • After the inspection is completed, a comprehensive narrative report with pictures and addition reference materials will be given to you within 24 hours.

  • Greg retired from the Army after 26 years of service and graduated from the Bellingham Technical College Residential Home Inspector Course in 2018, which is the only course recognized by the Department of Education in the State of Washington.

  • He held numerous leadership and operational positions and deployed on multiple combat and humanitarian missions.

  • As a Non-Commissioned Officer for over 20 years, his job was to lead, train, and inspect Soldiers and equipment. The only job that best fit his transition was to become a home inspector, which he applies the same Army Values to his inspections; Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage.
