“Tim’s professionalism is matched with a personal style that makes him accessible and extremely easy to work with, and equally easy to recommend!”  -Jane T.

“It was a pleasure to meet you and have you inspect our new home. We really appreciate your thoroughness, given the scope of our investment in this property.” -Kevin B.

Hello Tim, I just wanted to reach out to you and thank you for your detailed report. It is extremely helpful and very informative. Thanks again for a great job!  -Heather B.

We really appreciate the thorough report. We decided not to pursue the property. We’ll be in touch as we plan on continuing our search and anticipate needing another inspection sometime in the future. Thanks again for your thorough and honest assessment of the house. -Matt W.

We enjoyed our visit greatly and felt you listed all of our concerns, thanks for sending the report in a timely fashion. – Bob C.

“It was a pleasure working with Tim. I work in the realm of construction defect litigation; therefore, when purchasing a vacation home in the Summit County area, I was especially concerned with hiring an inspector qualified to detect issues unique to this high altitude alpine environment. After researching a number of inspectors, we selected Tim because of his credentials, reputation and over 30 years of experience in this alpine environment. His inspection was exceptionally thorough and he was able to provide useful context to identified issues. Tim was especially pleasant to work with and is skilled at explaining issues in layman terms. His infrared scanner was most impressive as we were able to see into the floors at the in floor radiant heating system to detect potential issues. I strongly recommend Tim for anyone considering purchasing a home in Summit County.”  -John C.

What is the cost of a home inspection and who pays?

The price for a home inspection starts at $250 for a 1 bedroom condo and $375 for a 2,000 sq. ft. single family home. Age, size, and distance from Summit County are factors. Radon gas levels and water quality/ flow testing are extra charges. This is paid by the buyer directly to the home inspector and is not included in closing costs.


Free Infrared Thermography Scan Included

IR_0338One of the latest tools for home inspectors is an infrared camera.

This helps to find problems like leaking roofs, wet floors, and poor insulation.

An IR camera is the best tool for inspecting in-floor radiant heat. This is so critical for a home inspection that it’s included for FREE.

Should You Get a Radon Gas Test?

Yes, for single family and townhomes in Summit, Park and Lake counties, as we are in a designated EPA “Red Zone”. Radon gas is natural radiation from the earth. A building acts as a vacuum and sucks it in. Over half of tested homes in Summit County are above the EPA safe level. When ordered, this is a 48 hour radon gas test designed for real estate transactions with immediate results.

Should You Get a Water Quality Test?

If your dream home has a well, a water quality test can be made for an additional $150 with the results available in a few days from a certified lab. Testing the well and septic system beyond normal use during the inspection is for licensed specialists. County laws may also mandate these separate inspections during a real estate transaction.
