"Relax, trust in quality and experience for your home inspection."
Calvin has decided to "retire from the rat race" of doing JUST the BUYER TYPE whole house inspections. He still does everything else listed, except for radon and lead paint.
Before filling out the Checklist, please call my cell phone (574-551-6680) to see if I am in a position to take on more Buyer (type) Inspections.
Listed below is a checklist for a buyer type home inspection. Please provide as much information available so I can provide you an appropriate quote. I prefer email, but a telephone call (574-269-3507/574-551-6680) will work as well. Click here for a printable checklist in pdf. Thank you.
