We perform home inspections for buyers, sellers, home maintenance inspections for home owners, and we perform Short-Term Rental Fire & Life Safety Inspections . A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.

As a certified and licensed inspector, I perform home inspections that meet and surpass the Washington and Oregon Standards of Practice for Home Inspectors.

If you are in need of a home inspection, CGI is here to help. You can trust me to deliver excellent service. We have a thorough, multi-point checklist that ensures that no stone is left unturned. I will explain the overall general condition of the home and its systems to you and your agent after your inspection is complete.

In addition, I will compile a comprehensive electronic report, delivered online via HTML, or in PDF format, documenting all of my findings including images, references and further details. This report will be available in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format, so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.

Drones

The standard protocol for home inspectors is to go on the roof if possible. When climbing the roof is not possible or safe, it could be viewed at the eaves with a ladder or viewed from the ground with binoculars.

Some roofs are too high off the ground, too steep to walk or are made from materials that cannot be walked on for several reasons. Some roofs will be damaged by the weight of the inspector and some roofing is too slippery to walk on top of.

If this is the case, a drone will be used for the roof portion of the inspection. The drone is not as good as standing on the roof, but if the roof and the chimneys cannot be inspected any other way - this new technology offers opportunities to find issues that might have been missed from the ground.
