I am a licensed North Carolina home inspector and certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors(ASHI).I have a B.S.degree in business administration and have over 30 years of experience as a licensed contractor, homebuilder and property inspector.I have provided contracting and consulting services to real estate management, insurance companies, property investors and have served as a HUD approved contractor for property repairs and inspections. I have a broad knowledge of real estate, construction, and related fields.
To me a home inspection is more than reporting on the physical characteristics of a home and its systems and components. It’s also about being aware and looking for things that will affect the indoor environment as well as addressing safety concerns that could potentially impact the safety and well-being of the occupants (you and your family). I choose to take a personal approach to educate and share information in regards to things such as, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, safety with gas appliances, deck construction, routine system maintenance, indoor air quality, things that can contribute to or be conducive to mold growth and wood destroying insect infestation, etc. My experience, which includes water intrusion analysis helps me to distinguish between a home that was just prepared for resale and a home that has been well cared for. I make an effort to fill in some of the gaps between what a home inspection is according to the North Carolina standards of practice/and what is included and/or discussed in many home inspections and what your expectations may be about the inclusiveness of a home inspection.
By being thorough and providing useful information is not to be confused with a home inspector being an alarmist, a deal breaker, and implying verbally or in a report that items beyond the norm are expected to be fixed by the seller. There are many real estate agents out there that I have worked with repeatedly over the years that appreciate a straightforward and honest approach to inspections.
