Our Services


Let's start with the two most common questions.

Questions? We have the answers.

What is a home


A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical, structural and mechanical systems of a home. If you’re thinking about buying a house, condominium, or multi-family, you should have it properly inspected before the final purchase by a licensed, experienced and impartial professional home inspector.

Why do I need home


A fresh coat of paint could be hiding serious structural problems. Water marks in the basement may indicate a chronic seepage problem or may simply be the result of a single incident. A home inspector interprets these clues and conditions and presents his or her professional opinion as to the condition of the structure before you buy - to help you avoid unpleasant surprises after the fact.
