Our Services


Full Residential Property Inspection

Looking to purchase a home? With a 2-3 hour thorough home inspection you will learn what parts of the property need attention and which are already functioning properly.  You are invited to walk alongside the inspector and have your questions answered.  You'll receive a detailed report within 24 hours of all findings and recommendations, including photos and thermal imaging.

Thorough explanations

Verbal Residential Property Inspection

With a 60-90 minute verbal inspection you receive the same one-on-one attention as in a full inspection and the property is inspected just as thoroughly, but you take the notes along the way.  No official report follows the appointment.

Remodel Consulting

Ready to save some money on your remodel project?  Let us help!  We are your go-to consultants for advice and guidance about timeline, which professionals to hire, and when the job's been done correctly. Our consulting fees are less than a general contractor's mark-ups, which is where your cost savings comes in. You hire and pay your chosen professionals directly, rather than a GC being in that role, and we watch over the quality and integrity of the results.
