Home Inspection

The elements of an inspection are the same whether they are industrial, commercial or residential. The inspector must have an eye for detail, knowledge of what to look for, and the ability to point out potential problems before they occur. These facts are especially important in residential home inspections because they are visual inspections instead of comprehensive technical inspections. It is also vital to be able to develop a strong rapport with the client and communicate effectively the findings of the inspection.

Areas inspected:

Grounds, vegetation, grading and drainage
Exterior siding, trim, doors and windows
Roof, chimney, attic, insulation, ventilation
Electrical and plumbing systems
Heating and cooling systems
Slabs, foundations, floors
Walls, and ceilings
Driveways, walks
Patios and porches

My home inspection report is designed to give you an accurate indication of the condition of the home or commercial property at the time of the inspection. With such information, you will be better prepared for the decision-making process when considering the purchase. All home inspections comply with current LSBHI standards of practice.

Standards of Practice

Mold Inspection

I assess for bioaerosol (mold) contamination through visual inspections, odors, and various air and physical testing methods. I can conduct mold and moisture infiltration inspections at the time of the standard home inspection. In addition, I can provide a mold remediation plan development or review, post remediation clearance air sampling and third-party air testing.
