I was a aggregate production supervisor for 20 years, inspecting , maintaining and modifying structures and equipment. A eye for detail. Preventive maintenance. I enjoy improving and maintaining my own home. Owning my own business now (Gallant Home Inspections) I rarely miss family activities and events unlike before. Between my wife and I were have 7 children and 16 grandchildren, always something going on. I'm a bit of a organized , clean fanatic.I believe honesty and integrity is ALWAYS the best policy ,both in work and life. Sincerely Michael
I like helping people find a home, inspecting so there are no surprises and listening to there plans to improve and make it there own.
Mike was clear in his communication and articulated his concerns well. He was diligent and made it a point to be thorough.
Timing, thoroughness, pleasant person to work with, (ie Michael), somebody that really gets down and dirty to find issues (literally), if you want a good inspection here's the best company to do it for you.
Michael was prompt, very thorough and took the time to explain our inspection clearly.
All I need is square footage of the home so we can agree on a price, then a first and last name, phone number,email address were to send the report when finished and the address of the home to be inspected.
20 years maintaining, inspecting and modifying structures and equipment in the sand and gravel industry. I am a AHIT (American home inspector training) graduate, Washington licensed and insured. Inspectors also are required to attend continuing education classes.
Cost of inspections are based on square footage, for example,,, up to 1,000 sqf 250$ up to 1,500 300$ to 2,000 350$ over 2,000 400$
My job for years and years was inspecting equipment, maintaining production and prevention of down time. I missed out on family activities and functions working long hours and 6 days a week. Owning my own business allows me to schedule around family time.
Young first-time buyers, middle aged up grade buyers and sellers, wealthy investors buying and selling, I have several repeat client's and give discounts when a client keeps getting under bid and forced to keep looking for a home
A young family hired me three times tell we found a home wear there offer was accepted and the inspection showed no hidden issues or surprise improvement cost.
Find your own inspector, not the realtors inspector, get a fair price based on square footage and be sure to attend at least most of the inspection.
Think about location of the home and your commute, plan a budget for any deffered cost items like new water heater or furnace, let the inspector know if you have young children so safety issues are closely inspected. Make note of the landscape and how weather might affect the home and your comfort personality.
