Bob knew exactly what he was doing.  His inspection was spot on and the builder complimented them on the fact that they were all key areas that needed to be improved.  They said that it did not come across as nitpicking. Also did a follow up review and found that all of the corrections were made.  Buying a new construction home was a bit daunting but Bob and his inspections made it smooth and easy for us.  I highly recommend him.

the KEY difference

Walk > On > Roof > Inspection

This is the KEY feature that makes us different from every other home inspection company. 


Many buyers are surprised to learn that home inspectors are not required to actually access the roof.  Most other inspection companies perform a visual inspection from a ladder or even from the ground, never setting foot on the roof or viewing it entirely. This procedure addresses only the type of roof-covering material, whether it appears that there are any active leaks, and the presence of gutters, vents, etc.   A walk-on roof inspection reveals failing pipe boots, faulty flashing, ripped or missing shingles, inadequate roof sheathing, etc.   


With our inspection, you get so much more.

off any      whole-house inspection!

We know that price is important, and we've tried hard to stay competitive.   We believe that, by including a walk-on roof inspection, we have the lowest prices in town.  If you find a lower price, let us know!  

Thanks for all you do!
