With Eric's experience in home renovation and knowledge in construction, an Elementary Property Inspection will give you a needed understanding of the property.

This is my promise to you.

Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until our appointment. Further more, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honour me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I'll give you my very best effort.

I'll inspect your home as if it were my own.

I have known Eric for many years. He is honest, knowledgeable, professional and will leave no stone unturned.
