About Me

I have an extensive background in residential and commercial construction. I have owned a successful residential remodeling company for 25 years. I have worked hundreds of projects in many homes and built numerous churches, schools, shopping centers, etc in Houston and the surrounding areas for 40 + years. I have always been a detail oriented person and this approach has conditioned me for making a thorough home inspection for you. 19 of those 40+ years were in the commercial construction field as a superintendent and project manager and I spent a lot of time on detailed reports and analysis, along with recommendations. This, along with the continuing education for the Professional Inspector’s license and the certifications through InterNACHI have added to the many facets necessary to be well informed in most phases of construction. It also allows me the opportunity to utilize these years of experience and use those insights to make informed assessments and recommendations to share with you about your potential home investment.

Why Hire Me

I am a Texas Real Estate Commission Licensed Professional Inspector and my philosophy is simple: I only inspect one or two homes a day to make sure that I have the required time for a complete detailed inspection, which includes taking as many photographs as necessary, and to be available to answer your questions. I do encourage you to attend the inspection so that I might address any concerns or questions you may have.. I know how stressful buying a home can be because it is a long term investment for you and your family. An important part of the process of buying a home is having it inspected by a highly qualified professional. A well trained licensed inspector can save you from future financial losses by identifying problems such as structural foundation problems, water damage, mold and the list can go on and on. A licensed inspector is trained to perform a thorough inspection by looking at every detail of your home from top to bottom and identify any problems that could result in financial loss to you and your family. Unidentified major or minor or hazardous issues could cost you thousands by having to pay for unexpected emergent repairs. Knowing what to look for is important to identify structural issues
