Certified Professional Inspector

You‘re not just buying a home inspection – you’re buying years of experience.

You can trust me to perform your inspection with great detail while following the InterNACHI Standards of Practice and Home Inspector Code of Ethics. I have years of combined experience in the construction and home building industries learning every part of a house there is to know about. In addition, we’ve received certifications from the top home inspection association in the world.

Reports are routinely sent out the same day, usually within hours of completing the inspection. In the rare event that a same-day report cannot be sent out, reports will be sent within 24 hours.

If possible, yes. The best time to attend is about two hours after the start of the inspection. This will give me enough time to get a good “feel” for the house as well as have the major components inspected prior to your arrival.

If you want an awareness of radon levels in your home, then yes. The EPA has set the action level of radon at anything greater than 4pCi/L. According to the EPA map North Idaho is Zone 1, which means levels are predicted to be above 4pCi/L. Radon levels are frequently tested to be much higher than that. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer aside from smoking.

An inspection for your home is like a physical or health check up from your doctor; It’s not invasive like a surgery, but is meant to look for red flags. Here are some more specifics:
  • A home inspection is a visual examination of the home’s observable physical structure and systems. Because only what can be seen can be inspected, issues hidden from view cannot be accounted for. For example things obstructed by furniture or personal belongings and things behind walls or below ground.
  • A home inspection is a snapshot in time. The defects found during the inspection are the ones that were present and observable at the time of the inspection. While I do my best to identify potential future problems and suggest preventive measures, you should expect future issues in the house that your inspection cannot predict.
  • Home inspections are not code inspections. Although many home defects have roots in code compliance, we do not enforce building code. For a more comprehensive picture of what is inspected, look at the InterNACHI SOP.
Home inspections start at $345 for single family homes up to 4000 sqft. Single family homes larger than 4,000 sq ft will have an additional fee of $0.05 per sq ft. Contact me directly for pricing and lead time on homes larger than 4,000 sq ft. Multi-family units like duplexes, ADUs, and homes with “granny units” add $95 per unit.
Radon testing is $135 and includes a detailed document with hourly measurements of radon levels, temperature, air pressure, and humidity.
