You need to have the freedom to enjoy and be proud of your home. This is my goal as the owner of Stairs & Pipes. Be confident a well trained and Certified Professional Inspector® thoroughly inspects your home. I take pride in my work. Be well informed in the systems and condition of your home. You benefit by joining the inspection because it helps you defend against water intrusion and other hostile environmental enemies that can attack the structure and components of your home.
I inspect every inch of the property including all structural, electrical, air conditioning system, and plumbing. You are notified of any item noted during the inspection. I provide quality color photos with every inspection. Most importantly, you understand every item by the time I am finished.
