Growing up I learned the construction industry working for my father, a General Contractor specializing in asbestos abatement. My expertise expanded into inspecting and renovating homes. My combined experience as a Home Inspector and General Contractor has given me a keen eye for finding defects that affect the overall structure, performance, safety and systems of a home as well as to help you better understand your home’s systems.
