About Us

High Value Inspection Reports that Focus on Our Client's Risk Exposure

Our inspectors write reports for clarity. Top priorities are identified on page 1. We reference real estate contractual milestone dates such as ‘prior to subjects removal’ for critical actions. We avoid boilerplate language. The report identifies damaged or compromised items, failed or non-operational components, systems at or approaching the end of their service life, and health and safety concerns. We employ specialized sub-contractors when inspecting for mold, asbestos, hazardous materials, buried oil tanks, septic systems, pools and spas, geo-thermal and solar systems.
