Some inspectors began in another industry, such as banking or computers, and started doing home inspections. That can be good if you are trying to find the cheapest inspector, or you are having problems with your laptop, but not so much help with finding things that you really need to know about your new home.
I have worked in residential construction for over 20 years. I have held positions such as Customer Service Manager where I was responsible for helping homeowners solve problems with their home to Project Manager where I managed construction, sales and customer service. I also spent about 9 years as a Quality Control Manager here in the Orlando area. I was responsible for inspecting homes during construction to make sure that they met the building codes and quality requirements of the home builder.
I know how a home is constructed and what can go wrong. More importantly, I know when something is right. Nothing is worse than a home inspector telling you that you need to hire a contractor to make repairs only to find that you spent your money and discovered that there is nothing wrong.
Over the years there has been an explosion in home building through out the Orlando area with many years seeing more than 20,000 homes built. With that many homes to monitor, it was virtually impossible for the building departments to adequately enforce the building code, let alone the quality of the homes. Even if they could, you need to keep in mind that the building code is designed to define the worst home that can be legally built. Therein lies part of the problem.
If you are buying a home in the Orlando area, you want to make sure that you enlist the help of an experienced Home Inspector to ensure that the home you buy is not going to be a money pit. I would like to help you with that process.
