As your Inspector, it is my duty and privilege, to provide you with all of the information you need to make informed decisions regarding your property.

Whether your property is residential, commercial, resale, or new construction, your safety is my number one priority. By implementing time-tested inspection best practices I am able to provide comprehensive reporting that will clearly distinguish between major and minor problems, while offering mitigation solutions that will help you put things into perspective.

With an Executive MBA, and nearly 15 years of project management, construction and facilities operations experience in the private sector, I have the experience, knowledge and skill necessary to conduct a thorough assessment of your property and to provide you with an extraordinary customer experience.

For residential properties, I highly encourage you to be present during the inspection, as you will be able to see and assess the condition first-hand.

Al was professional, thorough, and great to work with. He explained everythting very clearly and made the inspection process for our first home purchase smooth and straight forward. His report was thorough and provided very useful detail and recommendations. He followed up with us to make sure we were satisfied and answered all our questions along the way. Experienced and friendly service that I would certainly recommend.
