We're available 7 days a week for your building inspection.  We encourage you to be present for the inspection and ask questions.


THE ONLY WRONG QUESTION IS THE QUESTION YOU DID NOT ASK!


We not only give you a report that will both inform you of the issues found at the building inspected but we give you the "owner’s manual" and educate you about the building and the components contained within.
