Before he became a home inspector, Mike spent 25 years in the termite industry as an inspector, so making the switch was an easy one. “I enjoy being outside and meeting people,” he says. “I guess it’s fun finding things that are wrong with a house. In some ways, it’s like putting a puzzle together to discover issues with a home and help someone make an important life decision.”
For Mike, two things about a house stand out first—the foundation and then the roof. “I’ve seen some houses with some pretty major foundation issues or terrible roofs,” he says. “Those types of problems need to be addressed immediately.”
Mike enjoys the outdoors, camping, fishing and does all the cooking at home. He and his wife, Kayron, have two sons, 25 and 22, and are finally enjoying the empty nest.
