About Total Home Inspection Services

You‘re not just buying a home inspection –
you’re buying years of experience

Many homebuyers don’t realize that Colorado has no licensing procedure or requirements to become a home inspector, so it is important to compare qualifications before making your choice of inspector.

I have over 15 years of experience in construction, home building, plumbing, inspection, and handyman industries learning every part of a house there is to know about from the sewer connection to the rain cap of the chimney. I have significant experience in the design, installation, and service of high-efficiency boiler, hydronic heating, and solar thermal systems.

Additionally, I have joined and achieved a designation of Certified Professional Inspector (CPI) from InterNACHI, the world’s leading association for home inspectors. InterNACHI is also the only home inspector school accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET), a national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.  All inspections that I perform meet or exceed InterNACHI’s Standards of Practice, and I strictly adhere to InterNACHI’s Code of Ethics.  To become a CPI, one must pass examinations on the Code of Ethics, Standards of Practice, and general inspection knowledge, and then complete various courses relating to all of the systems in a home.  To remain a CPI, InterNACHI requires completing at least 24 credit hours per year of continuing education (Licensing requirements in some other states require as little as 12).

InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector, Infrared Certified

  • To date, I have completed over 188 credit hours of home inspection and building science continuing education, and am constantly taking more to improve the service that I offer to my clients.
  • I use the latest tools and techniques, including electrical circuit analyzers, combustible gas and carbon monoxide detectors, thermal imaging, mold sampling, and radon test equipment.
  • I am fully trained and certified in Thermal Imaging, Mold Inspection, and Radon Testing.
  • The detail and quality of my reports are unmatched and includes color photographs and diagrams that actually describe the entire property condition (not just a repair ‘punch list’).
  • I work for YOU and no one else. You are my client and I am proud of your trust in us. I will never do anything to betray that trust.
  • A home inspection requires a lot of work. A thorough inspection depends on the individual inspector’s own diligence, effort, and character. If you hire me to inspect your home, I will give you my very best- I inspect every home with the same degree of expertise, hard work, and care that I would provide to a member of my own family.
