When buying a home, I offer you greater peace of mind and clarity on your purchase with a pre-purchase home inspection. For sellers, I help to ensure a smooth transaction with maximum return with a pre-listing home inspection.
Additional services include multi-family building inspections, pool and spa inspections and 4-point inspections.
Purchasing a new home also means buying that home's problems. With a pre-purchase home inspection you can see exactly what you're buying. Problems discovered during the inspection could allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs — potentially saving you thousands of dollars. I'll even help you become familiar with the property.View Details
Sometimes selling your home can be just as much of a roller coaster as buying one. Getting a pre-listing home inspection can help ensure a quick and smooth transaction. You can enter the selling process with confidence that there won't be any nasty surprises. You'll also avoid delays, which could last for weeks or even months.View Details
Unfortunately, new does not always mean perfect. In fact, new doesn't even guarantee good. Material defects and human error during the construction process can lead to expensive problems later on. A new construction home inspection can help identify these problems early, when they're cheaper to fix. Some issues may even be covered under warranty.View Details

As a renter, have you ever had issues with a landlord refusing to return your security deposit in full due to damages that you did not cause or that were present at the time you moved in? Don’t risk losing what is rightfully yours. Allow JDB Property Inspectors to perform a pre-move-in inspection when renting your next home. Although I cannot guarantee your deposit will be returned in full, my inspection services and report can help to document property condition on your move-in date. Keeping this report in your files as it may help ensure adequate refund of your deposit.
A 4-point inspection is often required by insurance companies for homeowners insurance policies, typically for older homes. The 4-point inspection is shorter than a full home inspection and assesses the condition of four vital systems of the home: HVAC (air conditioning and heating), roof, plumbing, and electrical.View Details
If you're looking to buy a home with a pool or spa, then it's strongly advised to get a pool and spa inspection. While these features are highly sought after, they can also be very expensive to maintain and repair. A pool & spa inspection includes checking the pool's structure, safety features, equipment, as well as the surrounding deck.View Details
Some mold growth can be toxic, and mold spores can cause symptoms of mold exposure in some people. A mold inspection will tell you if your home has a mold problem, and identify the moisture source that is causing it. If you are selling your home, then it's important to have your home pre-inspected for mold to avoid delays for remediation, which could take a month or longer.View Details
Check faucets and showers, looking for visible leaks as well as testing water pressure. Identify the types of pipes used, if visible. Identify the location of the main water shutoff valve.
Identify the type of wiring, test all outlets and make sure there are GFCIs installed where needed to protect from electrical shock. Inspect the electrical panel for safety issues and fire hazards.
Determine the age of the furnace and air conditioner, whether or not they function properly, and possibly recommend repairs or maintenance.
Determine the age of the water heater and check for proper installation. I can also determine the condition and possibly give an estimated remaining life span of the unit.
Check for proper ventilation. A poorly ventilated dryer exhaust can be a serious fire hazard.
Test smoke detectors and ensure that the garage wall, if present, has the proper fire rating and is undamaged. Also check the fireplace for proper installation and maintenance.
Check for visible leaks, properly secured toilets, proper ventilation to prevent moisture related issues, and more.
If possible, check for structural damage and proper ventilation. Also check insulation and ensure that nothing is ventilated directly into the attic, such as the bathroom.
Check for damaged or missing siding, cracks, and excessive soil contact which can be an invitation for pests.
Check for possible foundation failure, indicated by cracks or settling.
Check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the house, which prevents water from entering the house or causing damage to the foundation.
If accessible and visible, check for roof damage or poor installation that may allow for water penetration as well as checking the condition of the gutters.
Test the garage door for proper functionality, check for proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, and check for risks of explosion from ignition sources too close to the floor.
