You’ll receive:

  • A detailed and thorough home inspection of all items listed on CREIA’s Standards of Practice
  • A PDF computer generated report with color pictures emailed to you the day of the inspection, usually within a few hours.
  • Comprehensive explanation of the findings with pictures at the conclusion of the inspection (not just a 10 minute summary) and unlimited consultation thereafter. For a typical single family residence this review usually takes at least an hour and has taken up to two hours long. I will be there no matter how long it takes until you fully understand the severity of all my findings.

If your SFR roof materials (excluding HOA) are too high to evaluate from my ladder at the lower eaves and or can be easily damaged by walking on them from the lower level and there are areas that are not readily visible, I have an FAA Airman Certification to legally allow me to use a drone at MY discretion (if the property is not in a restricted airspace and weather permitting) to evaluate those areas. I do not charge extra for this service if needed.


Great! Contact Mike at A Thorough Guy now. The job is as good as done.
