A family-owned business
My name is Stephen and I’m your KC HomeCheck inspector. I like to get to know those I work for and I strive to make each encounter a memorable one. Buying a home is often the largest purchase someone will make and my goal is to ensure that you are well-informed so you can be at peace about your decision. I am your inspector for life. You can contact me anytime a question arises about your home.
I have more than 17 years of combined experience in the fields of home improvement, general construction and home inspecting. I have built homes and extensively remodeled homes. It is something that I truly enjoy doing! In remodeling, it is very common to open the proverbial “can of worms”…and then we re-modelers become investigators. We find that in order to complete the job we were hired to do, we must figure out how to first deal with this leaky pipe and rotten subfloor (or whatever it may be). I enjoy the challenge of investigating a problem or perhaps proving that there is no problem at all. This intriguing and fascinating part of the job is what led me into home inspection. Since 2013 I’ve performed more than 1000 home inspections. I was trained to be thorough and I feel a personal obligation to put my eyes on every square foot of each house I inspect. Therefore whenever possible, I go up on every roof and explore every dark corner of the crawlspace. I know where most concealed issues hide and I’m not afraid to go find them. I also take continuing education classes each year to stay sharp on my skills and keep up with the ever-changing housing industry. These things, and others, are what set us apart from our competition. You may find other inspectors who are willing to “do it cheaper”, but you can trust me to be 100% thorough, 100% of the time.
A little background We moved to KC in May of 2019 after 16 years in Charlottesville, VA. I owned and operated a very successful home inspection company there (C’ville Home Inspection) between 2013 and 2019. Prior to that I worked in the home remodeling field for 7 years and gained an enormous amount of experience in framing, roofing, plumbing, electrical, and other trades. For the past 10 years we’ve been connected to KC through our church and we’ve longed to be here full time to be a part of this amazing community and city. We hired an inspector to take a close look at our home before we purchased it and I would be happy to provide the same invaluable service for you.
From our family to yours 🙂
