Combined 30 yrs in construction, 10 of which was with the Louisiana Dept. of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) as a construction inspector (roads, highways, bridges).
I am a member of the NW LA Realtors Association. An Accredited Business with the BBB (A+), A member of the Shreveport Chamber of Commerce and presently sit on the Louisiana State Board of Home Inspectors (2015 - 2021). And a registered LLC with the Secretary of State for Louisiana
Over 100 combined positive reviews at Home Gauge, BBB, Facebook and several other outlets. Also voted top 3 at Locals Love Us.
I believe in providing an honest and thorough inspection plus an easy to read but detailed report for my clients. Report is delivered the evening of the inspection.
Am happy to announce that there is a 50.00 discount for Military (regardless of status) and First Responders. For more information, please visit my website at www.yourhomeinspection.com
A little about the process - I use a drone when needed / possible to view roofs, also use a thermal imaging camera at service panels to document an issue. I don't just follow the minimum Standards of Practice that is outlined by the State - I try to go above that.
The inspection report is digital and available the evening of the inspection. I do "one" inspection per day (by choice) to ensure that I provide the best home inspection for my client without worrying about getting to the next inspection. I prefer to take my time within reason of course. An average inspection takes about 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours depending on the size and complexity of the home. The report takes another several hours because I am re-analyzing photos on my computer to ensure nothing was missed.
I try to take a more personal approach with home inspections, disclosing information is a valuable asset to the client. I like to take time to discuss the various findings both serious and cosmetic along with explaining the difference. I think it is also important to do this especially with first time home buyers.
