Before doing home inspections, our primary inspector , Brian Flanigan, a CT licensed home inspector (HOI 0000787) and member of CT Assoc. of Home Inspectors (CAHI), was a home improvement contractor for over 15 years, so he knows very well how houses should be constructed and how mechanicals should work.
Through CAHI, our home inspectors attend continuing education classes of many topics of new/current importance
For those who are interested in having a pool checked out, Brian also built his own in-ground pool.
As you may know, the 2 main objectives for having a home inspection are to investigate safety, as well as proper function and condition.
4 areas of defects that should concern everyone are:
We will also check: Exterior, Chimney/Masonry, Foundation, Structure, Heating/Cooling, and Interior Components.
Homebuyers should have an inspection for peace of mind. We would be happy to help.
