TN License #2188, ASHI Certified Inspector #245309, InterNACHI Certified Inspector #20071014, EDI Certified EIFS/stucco Inspector #TN-60

All of my inspections exceed both Tennessee state standards and the ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) standards of practice. I use state-of-the-art equipment including DJI drones for roof inspections, digital moisture meters, FLIR infrared cameras, and infrared temperature sensors, along with carbon monoxide and explosive gas detectors. The inspection reports I provide contain detailed photographs of problems, cover all of the major home systems and give you the knowledge you need to make a fully informed decision.

Experienced and knowledgeable in the science of home construction -

The inspector you hire must have a solid knowledge of the different components and systems that make up a home. It is also important that an inspector is honest and open, communicates effectively, and can offer recommendations based on what he may find during his inspection. A great inspector will give you the tools and information you need to make the right decision - not just give you a report with a list of defects. Since 2005 our company has inspected over 9,000 properties!
