Seattles Top Inspection Team!

We are independent, not a franchise, the only one we work for is our clients. 

Many inspectors make you wait for a report. You will never have to wait for our inspection results, all reports are printed onsite.  We use a unique inspection reporting system we developed ourselves.  

What we sell is education, and answers to your questions.  Unless you have a report in hand before we leave, there can be critical details that you may not understand.  How do you know what to ask an inspector without a report?

Our 35 years of experience in construction and real estate is invaluable and allows us to pass along expertise you will not find anywhere else.  With over 2200 inspections, we have many happy clients.  Read what they have to say about our superior customer service.

The Difference in Home Inspections 

Computerized Reports Printed On-site with Full Color Photos, Two Certified Inspectors for complete and efficient inspections.  We work as a team and have 2 independent inspection crews to meet your tight timelines. Covering the entire Puget Sound area and beyond.

Thermal Imaging Scan, Infrared scansFull Members of ASHI, (American Society of Home Inspectors) ASHI certifications assure you that we are the best trained and tested inspectors in the profession.  This is achieved by real testing of applicants (no phony internet certifications here) and peer reviews of actual inspection reports.  

ASHI is by far the toughest home inspection association to join and maintain membership. They require that the person have completed no less than 250 paid professional home inspections and the completion of two written examinations. 

Once a person becomes a member, he/she must take continuing education. No other association certification program even comes close to these requirements.

Many say they inspect to ASHI standards, but this is not the same as being an ASHI Certified inspector.  

We are licensed by the State of Washington, as of September 2009, all experienced home inspectors had to complete mandatory testing and licensing.

Carpenter Ants Carpenter ants will damage homes by nesting in them. The will dig out tunnels to in wood expand their living spaces and can lead to structural damage
Moisture Ants
These ants are only found in wet wood, and if the source or moisture is controlled, the insects will usually leave with no pesticide treatments required.
Wood Boring Beetles
In coastal areas of Washington wood-infesting beetles cause extensive damage to wooden buildings. Damage often is overlooked, as these insects live in portions
of the structure where people seldom see them.
Termites Termites are among the most important structural insect pests in the Northwest. Only carpenter ants rival them in importance.
