Did you know that some inspectors send someone other than a licensed inspector to go into the crawlspace to view with a camera? PROVIEW Professional Home Inspections takes our job seriously and if I can enter the crawlspace I will inspect as much as.. read more →

Without a Home Inspection it might dampen your purchase!

Home Inspections is a very important part of the process of buying a house. I realize that not everyone gets a home inspection, but they should and not because that’s what I do for a living.

Dryer Vent Hood Issue

Recently on a Home Inspection found this dryer vent hood that makes you sit back and wonder. Most likely the person did this to stop perhaps birds from entering but what a fire hazard. If the flapper doesn’t operate get a new vent hood but never do this.   read more →

Crawlspace Inspection Being Watched!

I always recommend that my clients be present during the inspection if possible. I look at my job not only to report on defects but to educate my client, and that means most of the time I’m being watched as I work. At a recent home inspection,  I was performing my crawlspace inspection and came across someone watching me! Must say it startled me for a second but then found it amusing!

Crawlspaces and Inspections should go “Hand In Hand”

One thing that sets us apart from some of our competition is that “I” actually go into the crawlspace. I know that many people think “doesn’t every Home Inspector do that”?Well you may be surprised to find out the answer is “NO”. Some may send unqualified persons into the crawlspace to take photos but unqualified persons and Non-Licensed persons should have a part of the Home Inspection. We also use technology to see in areas that.. read more →

Does It Really Matter If You Know How To Do A Repair?

As a Home Inspector, I understand that people try to save money by doing repairs. Sometimes a repair may not be a skilled job but then there are others that require knowledge and skill that many homeowners do not have!  Many repairs are rather simple but when it comes to electrical, plumbing or perhaps structural issues then it should be performed by those trained, licensed, and legally to make the repairs. In fact, it’s just.. read more →

Roof Valley that collects water

An important part of a Home Inspection covers the envelope of the structure. The roof is the 1st line of defense and can allow a multitude of other issues. Homeowners sometimes feel that they or someone in the family can do such repairs but often they can make it worse. Here is a photo of one such instance where a roof repair was made, but the shingles and the method of installation are incorrect. The shingles.. read more →
