Having recently retired after serving the citizens of our community for 28 years with the City of Lima Fire Department, I bring with me to the home inspection industry the same dedication to professionalism and customer service developed during those years of service in the community.
As a Licensed Property Inspector and a member of the Inter National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) as well as being introduced to the building trades at the age of 12 through my grandfather's construction company, I have continued to expand my knowledge and my skill level in the construction industry.
While we are certified to perform both commercial and residential property inspections we take special satisfaction in our residential inspection process. First time home buyers as well as those who are moving up or downsizing will benefit from our experience, our dedication to detail and customer service as well as our professional yet practical approach to home inspections.
