Phil’s Background in Construction

Many home inspectors don’t have a construction background, which means they don’t possess a wealth of vital knowledge about the most common issues in homes. Fortunately, Phil spent 20+ years working in all aspects of home construction, ranging from foundation to finish. He’s also experienced with project management and estimating.

Phil’s Inspiration for Switching to Home Inspections

When Phil and his wife bought a new home, they discovered that their home inspector was unable to explain issues in a way that someone without a construction background could easily understand. Phil subsequently enrolled in a home inspection course and knew right away that helping homebuyers was his future. He loves putting his construction knowledge to work and takes pride in helping people just like you make informed decisions.

Specializing in Residential Properties

Many home inspectors spread themselves thin by taking on a wide variety of residential and commercial customers. Phil has a specialized focus instead, and this means that he’s able to quickly return high-quality reports. He inspects the following residential building types:

  • Single Family Residences
  • Condominiums
  • Townhouses

Phil’s inspection services are available for new and old homes.

Phil’s Spare Time is Spent in the Great Outdoors

Phil’s background includes more than construction and home inspections; he also spent 20+ years in the ski profession, went to bicycle mechanics school, owned a bicycle shop, and is a volunteer who helps develop and work on local hiking/biking trails. Therefore, it’s no surprise that he loves the Northern Sierra Area and is often found skiing and cycling.
