Residential Home Inspection and Report

Our inspection is conducted according to the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of The American Society of Home Inspectors , (ASHI). These standards assure you that the inspection is thorough and is conducted by an experienced professional.

We use a UAV (Drone) to inspect the roof and related components whenever possible*. Our Mavic Platinum Pro Quadcopter employs a 4K High Definition camera for unsurpassed clarity. It gives us the detailed imagery required to properly evaluate the roof and related components. To use a drone commercially, the operator must meet the requirements of the FAA as outlined in Part 107 which includes a written examination. Mark has met these requirements and has been issued a Remote Pilot Certificate by the FAA.
