Some of my certifications

CPI-Certified-Professional-Inspector-InterNACHI-logo

 

InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector

Unlike other home inspection associations, InterNACHI requires that its members take many courses and examinations after joining.  All of their certified members must fulfill certification requirements before they can become certified. Other home inspection associations have few or no entrance requirements, and they encourage their members to go out and perform hundreds of unqualified inspections for unsuspecting consumers.

 

 

WDOInspector

 

Wood Destroying Organisms Inspector

Often referred to as a Pest & Dry-rot Inspection, this service is critical in the damp environment of the Pacific Northwest, as many homes are subject to damage from these organisms without the home owner even knowing.

Certified Exterior Inspector

A house’s exterior is comprised of complex systems that must work together to create a secure dwelling. I’ll make sure to carefully analyze all systems to ensure you’re able to keep your home sound.

Certified Chimney Inspector

Chimneys are a critical part of any fuel burning system and must be thoroughly inspected to ensure that they don’t pose a fire risk to your home. According to CSAI, chimneys account for more fires than any other other system in the home.

 

 

Certified Deck Inspector

I’ve undergone specific training to identify any potential problems that decking systems are prone to encounter as they weather Oregon’s varied seasons.
