I'm not just an inspector, I grew up around construction, starting when I was a kid, getting tools and cleaning up jobs for my dad. The work ethic I learned then has served me well over the years on my way to having my own contracting and inspection licenses. I have built homes and accessory structures for over 20 years and know how they are constructed from the ground up. I have also remodeled older homes so I know how building processes have changed over the years.
Thank you for considering Lifetime Inspections.
Every home you buy is one of the largest purchases of you lifetime. Why not trust the inspection to someone with a lifetime of construction experience.

From the foundation to the roof, all of the systems of a home can be costly to repair or replace. A home inspection can help determine the overall condition of these systems. Roofs that are only a few years old and look in good condition can have loose shingles or missing fasteners. AC units that are clean on the outside may be packed full of dirt on the inside. A roof truss that has been cut to make room for an plumbing pipe weakens the roof structure. These are just a few reasons a trained eye can be a huge asset when purchasing an existing home.
New Home Inspections typically include 3 steps:
Wind Mitigation Inspections are a great way to save money on your homeowners insurance premiums. The inspection is preformed using a form provided by the insurance industry to verify features of construction that help reduce the likelihood of damage during high wind events. Some of these features include roof coverings, truss strapping, and window protection.
When purchasing older homes, typically over 20 years old, insurance companies may require a 4 Point Inspection. Like Wind Mitigation Inspections, 4 point Inspections are also preformed using an insurance form and cover these 4 systems of the home.
