Rich Moreno

"John is the best guy for my home inspections. Quick, prompt, knowledgeable, professional, comprehensive, detailed with the touch of sense of humor. With vast knowledge of plumbing, electric, heating, foundation, roof, structure systems, he will explain to my client with plain English and suggest easy solutions. Way better than many inspection companies which have no clue on roofs and charge you extra."

Frequently Asked Questions

An ASHI inspector looks at over 2000 items in a typical home inspection which cover the roof, foundation (including entering the crawlspace), testing of the heating system, plumbing system, electrical system as well as visual inspection for safe connections and installation of each system. In addition, the inspector will inspect the exterior grounds, including the grading around the building, the exterior siding and windows, porches, patios, and decks, as well as interior components like bathrooms, kitchens including ovens and dishwashers, laundry facilities, interior walls, ceilings, and floors.

All our home inspections conform to the Standards of Practice from ASHI which itemizes in great detail what is included in a home inspection, from top to bottom, a copy can be obtained from their website at ASHI.org

Items such as pools/spas, termite inspections, moisture-related damage, code violations, home appraisals are not within the scope of our inspection and are not included in any service we provide.

A typical inspection should take around 2 hours for a home of 1500 sq. ft. Add another 20 -30 minutes for each additional 500 sq. ft. thereafter.

We email reports on the second day after the inspection, usually in the morning.

We accept cash and check as our standard forms of payment. For a $25 service fee, you can use your credit or debit. Payments are expected on the day of inspection. There is a $50 escrow processing fee if you would like us to bill escrow.

We carry Errors and Omissions and General Liability insurance for your protection.

In the state of California, you do not need any kind of certification or qualifications to become a home inspector. Therefore, anyone can say they can inspect your property, however not everyone you hire will be qualified for the job. Not only is our inspector a certified member of ASHI, the national leader in providing certification for home inspectors, but he has been providing home inspections for over two decades and has worked in the construction industry long before his current profession. In addition, he has worked with a major California Roof Inspection company for 18 years, providing roof inspections for insurance adjusters, with vast knowledge in leak detection. So there is no home inspector in our area that has better knowledge of roofing systems.
