My Promise 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. 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 hire me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
Call today to schedule a detailed inspection with free insect and mold assessments included.

What Really Matters
Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
1. Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
2. Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
3. Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.
4. Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure or nit-picky items.
"Todd was very professional, timely and knowledgeable. He answered all questions and offered helpful hints and other professionals that may be helpful. He immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. He showed me different types of mold growing. His report was complete in less than 24 hours, complete with pictures!"

"Todd from Tricor is top notch! With the patience of a saint! Todd was extremely thorough in the inspection and took the time to explain everything in detail to me as we went through the house. His being a licensed builder was also very helpful. He gave a lot of suggestions with repairs as well as answering questions pertaining to my home improvement project plans, which he did not have to do. I made a lot of phone calls to Todd long after he left and into the next day with other questions I had and he never made me feel like I was bothering him. He even came out the next day to check something out that I had a question about. Top quality!"
