Questions and Answers

What is included in my inspection?

I adhere to all the ASHI standards. For more detailed information about what that includes, visit the ASHI website, which outlines every aspect of a standard inspection.

How much does the inspection cost?

Every structure is unique. Price is determined on the following criteria, as well as other factors:

  • Location
  • When It Was Built (Age)
  • Square Footage
  • Type of Foundation (Basement, Crawlspace, or Slab)

A phone call will be needed to determine the exact cost.

Are you licensed/insured?

Yes. Also, I am an ASHI certified inspector.

Do you have Lockbox (Supra) access?

Yes. This required passing a criminal background check.

How long will the inspection take?

Roughly 2 to 3 hours: more or less, depending on size and other variables. After the inspection, I will do a "presentation," where I review the findings with you and show pictures of the home.

When will I get my inspection report?

Inspection reports are usually delivered within 24 to 48 hours of your inspection, by email.

What types of payment do you take?

Cash, Check, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, & Discover.

What Metro Atlanta areas do you service?

How long have you been in business / How many home inspections have you performed?

Started/Incorporated in 2006. I have performed over a thousand inspections and counting.

What is your background / experience / certifications?

I have over 35 years of experience in the residential construction industry and over 13 years of experience in the home inspection industry. This includes hands-on and in-the-field experience that no classroom can teach. I have completed certified training and the National Home Inspector Exam. I am proud to be a member of ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors), and my license number is ASHI #246552. Every member is required to have a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education per year.

Do you check for Termites?

Yes. I look for any type of intrusion to the structure, including insects, rodents, etc. However, I always recommend securing a "Termite Letter/Bond" from a licensed Pest Control company.

Can you do Radon Gas or Mold Testing?

Yes. These are fee-paid additional services.
