We encourage attendance; by following the home inspector around the home, observing and asking questions, you will learn more about your new home as well as obtain an instant evaluation.
We provide you with personal attention; by taking the time to explain unfamiliar systems, suggest maintenance procedures, and point out ways to correct problems.
We will even provide repair and maintenance hints; and even if requested remodeling advice.
We work for you exclusively; and if needed will continue to even after you move in by telephone consultation.
