'Terry On Call' Home Inspections


I Personally answer my Phone. So that all of your questions will be answered.


How to find a Reliable inspector.

  1. One key to hiring a reliable inspector is to ask them to share with you some of their previous sample reports that they have done.
  2. Ask them what they will look for and what they won't? For instance fireplace chimneys, attics, do they walk the roofs.
  3. Ask them how long they are going to be doing this inspection. Some inspectors are in and out in 90 minutes, which is just not long
  4. enough to check everything.
  5. Ask them if you can be there for the whole inspection? Some inspectors don't want you there, or just at the end of the inspection.

Inspected Once, Inspected Right!

I personally perform every home inspection myself and will always give you the utmost personal attention you deserve. Something that is not always possible with the large multiple inspector firms. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.

      In this business you never quit learning. If you do. You are of no use/help to your clients.

      CLIENT WALK-THRU - I believe that the inspection process is an educational experience and not a checklist of items which are or are not operational at that moment in time. I strongly encourage my clients to be active participants in the inspection process. This gives us the opportunity to walk around the property and discuss not only the black and white, but the gray areas as well. In many cases, by the end of the inspection, you will know more about the home than the current homeowner.

      HIGH TECH EQUIPMENT - I refuse to guess on any of my findings. I continue to utilize advanced high tech natural gas and , temperature sensors, numerous digital meters, in order to confirm any of my findings throughout your prospective home.

      12-24 Hour Report Turn Around - Toc Home Inspections provides reports that are all individually written and specific to that home. Our reports provide excellent detail and most of the issues are accompanied by photographs with the report. I typically take over 50 pictures of issues, to aid in the explanations of problems.
