What we insepct  

The major systems

We inspect all types of structures throughout Kern County. 

 

Thermal imaging included with all home inspections.

The thermal imaging camera is a powerful tool that few home inspectors utilize.  I include it with all inspections.

Detailed and easy to read reports.

The home inspection reports we create are not simple checklists but actually narrative in nature to give you the details about the defects so you can make an informed decission.
