Inspection Services in King & Pierce Counties
I’ll inspect the structure, systems, and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.
I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.
As a state-licensed Certified Professional Inspector® trained by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), I adhere to a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I will inspect all of the following, when visible and accessible:
- Structural Components
- Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
- Exterior Cladding
- Exterior Fencing
- Porch & Deck

Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report immediately after your inspection before I leave the property, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
Annual Home Maintenance Inspection
Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let me help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year.
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it is also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the U.S. Surgeon General. Nearly one out of every 15 homes is estimated to have elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have already had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.
