My many years of residential construction application and management
began in the early 1980's as a carpenter apprentice building and framing
roofs, walls, decks, stairs and other structural components. Through the
eighties and into the early nineties my construction experience grew to
include all conventional types of residential flooring, roofing, drywall, siding,
windows, doors and more.
In 1994 I purchased my first of many investment properties and began the
long journey of planning, managing, and applying my practical construction
abilities to rescue crippled houses.
Through education and application and many, many meetings with city and
county inspectors of all kinds, I built a working knowledge of plumbing,
electrical and mechanical systems as I continued purchasing and restoring
various types of residential properties. With my well rounded knowledge of
residential building systems I began offering my services as an inspector to
my fellow investors, giving paid advice regarding the general condition of
their potential investments.
In today's uncertain real estate market I have become a full time inspector
offering a wide range of services to buyers, sellers, investors,
landlord/tenants and real estate professionals.
I am a member in good standing of the National Association of Certified
Home Inspectors and we meet or exceed their Code of Ethics, and Standard
Operating Procedures. NACHI member requirements include, but are not
limited to- passing the Annual Comprehensive Certified Inspector Exam,
Annual Continuing Education Requirements, and required member
