 RELIABLE INFORMATION COMMUNICATED HONESTLY

I would be honored to inspect your home.

What I Inspect and Why

A home inspection is a visual examination of the home's major structure, systems, and components that are visible and safely accessible. Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make, so it's important to get a home inspection because the inspector can find and document defects that may or may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer.  Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs to severe damage or safety and health concerns. 

  1. Interior, exterior, walls, windows, and doors

  2. HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)

  3. Basement, crawlspace, and structure

  4. Fireplace

  5. Roof and attic

  6. Electrical

  7. Plumbing

  8. Monsters

Why I'm Different...

Reliable and Informative

I thoroughly enjoy taking the time to help you learn about your home in a non-alarmist way. During the inspection, I will show you how everything in your house works, how to maintain it, and how to save home energy. I'll also provide you with a free 100 page home maintenance manual once we are done.

 

Timely Communication

I leverage a state of the art online scheduling system via this website that feeds a client facing portal. Once your appointment is scheduled, you will get access to the client portal which will provide real time email/ text updates and other simple functions throughout the inspection experience, including the report. This portal also empowers your real estate partner with the Repair Builder Tool setting up easier post-inspection follow up.

Confidence

As a fully trained, licensed and insured Certified Professional Inspector(CPI), I also offer InterNACHI’s Buy-Back Guarantee www.nachi.org/buy providing you with a greater level of confidence and peace of mind.

Meet Your Inspector

RICH SMITH

I am a proud husband, father, grandfather and veteran. My mission is to leverage my technical training, successful corporate career and life experiences to help people better understand their current, next or forever home.  Many people want to "ask Dad" to look at a home. Some times, that's not possible.  I want you to hire me to help.  It's about more than a home purchase. It's about the safety of the home for their family, visitors and pets. It's about the financial impact to the client for things not known before the purchase or after. I look forward to helping you by providing reliable information communicated honestly.
