I have been inspecting homes since 2001. I have a wide range of construction knowledge starting in 1983. I love helping people in their buying decision to make it clear the investment they are making. It should be no surprises when you decide to buy your home.
I've had a roof leak at my home for the past couple of months and noticed that mold had started to develop in a few areas of the house. With funds being a little tight I wanted to see if the mold growing was something that required urgency to have it remediated or if I can hold off a bit until I had the funds to do it. PPG was actually the first company I called to explain my situation and get advice on how to move forward. Though Darren was extremely informative over the phone and really seemed willing to try to provide the best price, I still called other companies to see which would be the best option. After calling other companies and hearing their advice over the phone along with their prices, I was confident that PPG was the option I felt most comfortable and confident with. I called multiple times to schedule an appointment but something always came up on my end that prevented me from confirming an appointment. Every time I called Darren was understanding and patient with me. When I was finally able to schedule the appointment he arrived on time to the dot. One of the first questions he asked me when he walked into the home was how I was feeling (health wise). That made me feel that he really had my best interest and well being in mind. He was extremely professional throughout the entire inspection and also answered every question that I had ( I had a lot ). He sensed that I was worried about the mold affecting the quality of the air in the home and was able to expedite the lab tests to try and put my mind at ease sooner than later. I had the test done on a Wednesday and got the results back that Friday. It turns out everything was clear as far as the air quality so there was nothing to worry about. I felt like he was being nothing but straight forward and honest from the first time I called to the time he followed up with the results on the inspection. I asked for a couple of business cards so that I can recommend PPG to any neighbors that may be experiencing the same situation. 5 stars easily. I'm glad that I chose PPG opposed to the other companies that I reached out to. No regrets what so ever
We come together on a fee and a best time to do the inspection. I try to set an expectation for the buyer so there is no surprises. I do a consultation when the physical part of the inspection is complete to explain the concerning issues with the residence. I collect the fee and deliver the report in 24 to 48 hours via email.
Outside of being trained at larger inspection companies. I started in demolition work and moved on from there to become a general framer and ran my own appraisal company for seven years.
I have somewhat of a standard but the details are hard to describe without being too long-winded. I try to determine the complexity of the job that I'm doing and estimate of how long it would take me to do it.
I work with selling agents, listing agents, contractors, renovators as well as sellers and buyers.
Just recently I was on and inspection where the selling agent was a handyman and actually repair issues on the spot. It's always great to do inspections where the seller has compassion for the buyer.
Look for someone who has great communication skills and can communicate clearly in dollars or level of safety hazardous how large the issue is and what's your concern should be. Ask if there's going to be pictures and detail communication on the report as regards to the issues in the home or residence.
What kind of service do you need? Would you like mold evaluation and testing? Do you need asbestos testing? Do you need a video scan of your sewerline? Would you like an infrared inspection (see what the eyes can't)?
