What to expect

Typically I will arrive onsite 15 minutes prior to the start of the inspection.

I will thoroughly inspect the exterior, interior, electrical system, plumbing system and fixtures, heating and cooling systems, attic, structure and foundation.

A thorough and detailed report with pictures identifying what repairs are needed and maintenance tips will be emailed to you the following day by noon.

You are welcome to follow me. I am happy to answer any question you may have before, during, and after you receive the report.

Colin did an amazing job on my home inspection. He caught key issues before buying the house for us to
bring up to the seller and did a really great job explaining in detail what he was finding and how to
maintain or fix it. Excellent work from Colin glad I. choose him for the inspection process!

Colin did an excellent job! He explained his findings as we progressed through the house. His inspection
and report caught key issues that I was able to present to the seller. Colin even returned to my property
to inspect the garage after I received the keys a couple days later. I highly recommend Colin.
Steve Allen

Colin is an absolute pro. He was very clear on inspection day about the issues he was seeing, and what
those meant for me as the homeowner. Colin was able to concisely explain specific things like building
materials and electrical wiring to give me context, but I never felt overwhelmed with too much technical
information. After just a few conversations with him, I feel much smarter about my house and how to
care for it over the long term. In the end, our inspection report was extremely thorough and helped us
feel comfortable and prepared to own this home.

Colin was thorough and took the time to explain all potential issues in detail. He caught an oil tank that
was still on the property that would have cost us thousands of dollars to remove. Thanks to him we’re
working with our seller to have it taken care of. Can’t recommend Colin enough!
Jordan Vonderwell

Colin inspected a house for me last week. Beyond being a pleasant and friendly person in general, he
was very thorough, knowledgeable, and honest about everything he found. He helped me prioritize the
more pressing issues that need immediate attention and offered recommendations for professionals to

contact for further assistance. He made me feel confident in the house that my family will grow in for
years to come.
