Alan is a husband, father, grandfather AND Home Inspector
Originally from Australia, Alan has an extensive background in all levels of construction. Foundation repairs, Building moving, Renovation and New construction have all been a part of his journey. A licensed Home Inspector since 2013, Alan has inspected over 600 homes all over Eastern Massachusetts. He looks forward to meeting you and delivering a rewarding Home Inspection experience. You are encouraged to walk along with him at the inspection, and you should feel free to ask ANY question. As a Home Inspector Alan does not know everything about everything in a house, but does know a lot about everything in the house.
I will conduct a thorough inspection of your home, inside and out. I plan on spending two or more hours in, on and around the home.
As a NACHI and ASHI certified, Commonwealth of Massachusetts licensed rofessional home inspector, I have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with a thorough and professional, non-intrusive, visual inspection of your home, from foundation up to the roof.
On the exterior of the home, I will check the walls, roof, driveway, deck, yard slope etc. I will then move inside to examine the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. The heating, air-conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems will all be examined to ensure that they function as intended. Bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms receive a thorough check along with the attic and basement or crawl space.
Here are some of the many items I'll be looking at during your home inspection:
Foundation and support structure
Electrical capacity & components
Steps and stairs
Central air conditioning system
Walks and driveways
Plumbing system & fixtures
Attached garages, carports, workshops
Windows & doors
Gutters & downspouts
I invite you to come along and watch as I inspect your home, and you are free to ask questions at any time. For more information please browse the rest of this web site.
Home Energy Score Maintenance, Diagnostic & Forensic Inspections
Hiring a professional home inspector to diagnose specific problems or evaluate areas that have not been inspected in a while should be a priority on every homeowner’s list. Problems left unattended can develop costly repair costs.
Crawlspaces are particularly vulnerable due the infrequency they are inspected. Plumbing leaks, foundation leaks, termites if left unattended can cause major damage to the structure.
If you have had construction performed and need an unbiased professional opinion or you may want to hire a professional for quality control.
