You’ve looked at a dozen websites about Oklahoma home inspectors. They all say the same thing. Now let’s get to what really matters. EXPERIENCE. Not just experience in home inspections, but experience in home building and repair. If you hire me to inspect your home, you’ll get an expert who is a home builder and has the practical experience and technical knowledge to assess the condition of any home built in Oklahoma.
Home Inspectors in Oklahoma are required to be licensed. Never hire one that isn’t. Mine is #649. But let’s face it, anyone can take a class, study, and pass the test. Don’t get me wrong, the test is long and detailed, but if you can study, you can pass it, and during this last recession, many did. (Teachers, firemen, realtors, students, retirees, etc.) That doesn't mean new inspectors can't inspect a home. But can they find the problems and safety issues that matter to a home buyer. I can, and do every day. I am a professional building inspector, who has been certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors with decades of experience and 100’s of hours of training.
I have over 25 years of construction experience. I am a home builder. I have skilled trade experience, actual hands-on experience, in most every aspect of the construction industry. I have formed and poured foundations, installed and repaired plumbing systems, electrical systems, roofing, siding, brick, stone, framing, doors and windows, wall boards, paint, cabinets, flooring, and fireplaces. I have built and repaired swimming pools, installed and repaired sprinkler systems, and repaired well systems. Ask a potential home inspector what practical experience they have. If they have as much as I do, hire them, they will do a good job. But guess what, there are only a handful of us, so save yourself some time and call me now at 405-514-8583 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your home purchase and how I can help you make a wise decision.
How much more is this house going to cost me, is of course, the next thing you’ve been trying to figure out. I’ll answer that question by helping you understand this: Like any professional, the price of the inspection is directly related to the experience and expertise of the Inspector and how much work that Inspector spends on your project. I schedule one inspection a day and devote my full attention to your house. If you are looking for the least expensive homeinspection in Oklahoma, then you can stop right here and find a less qualified person to inspect your house. In this profession, it is absolutely true; you get what you pay for. Considering your new home will probably be the most expensive thing you ever buy, you should call me at 405-514-8583 or email me, and let’s discuss how I can help you out. Receiving a detailed inspection report with pictures from an expert is not as expensive as you might think. See an example of an inspection report here.
Unlike most professionals, the first time we will meet will be at the inspection. And different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure, a professional home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. And I’ll always be your inspector, for as long as you own your home. Call me any time with questions about repairs and maintenance. My clients call me years later, and I can usually save them money and time by helping them solve their problems.
