Home Inspection Description


I will conduct a thorough inspection of your home, inside and out. 

As a TREC Licensed and NACHI-certified Professional home inspector,  I have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with a thorough and  professional, non-intrusive, visual inspection of your home, from roof  to foundation.  Outside the home, I will check the exterior walls, roof,  driveway, deck, etc., and then I will move inside to examine the walls,  ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. The heating, air-conditioning,  plumbing, and electrical systems will all be examined to ensure that  they function as intended. Bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms  receive a thorough check, along with the attic and basement or crawl  space.

Why Choose Charles?


About Charles

My Commitment to You

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike  most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you  hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications,  equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing.Experience, the hands on kind, in the construction of new homes and the renovation of old estate and historic homes uniquely qualifies me over most inspectors to actually understand all aspects of the construction of a home. One thing for sure is that a home inspection  requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends  heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by  permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you  my very best effort.

INTER NACHI Statement InterNACHI front-ends its membership requirements.  InterNACHI turns down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't fulfill the membership requirements.  InterNACHI certified inspectors perform the best inspections by far.  InterNACHI certified inspectors earn their fees many times over.  They do more, they deserve more, and yes they generally charge a little more.  Do yourself a favor...and pay a little more for the quality inspection you deserve.    Inspected Once, Inspected Right!

FAQs For Home Buyers

The most common question from my clients is how long will things last?

  The following material was developed for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Economics Department based on a survey of manufacturers, trade associations and product researchers. Many factors affect the life expectancy of housing components and need to be considered when making replacement decisions, including the quality of the components, the quality of their installation, their level of maintenance, weather and climatic conditions, and intensity of their use. Some components remain functional but become obsolete because of changing sytles and tastes or because of product imporvements. Note that the following life expectancy estimates are provided largely by the industries or manufacturers that make and sell the components listed.  

     Life Expectancy of Household Components 

  1.     Appliances                 Life in Years

  • Dishwasher                        10
  • Disposal                              14   
  • Microwave ovens               11
  • Electric ranges                   17
  • Gas ranges                         19
