I purchased my first home when I was 23 years old, at the time I was working as a master automobile technician, I fell in love with houses! I embraced all aspects of this house, stripped it down to the studs and rebuilt it with help of friends in the trades. I learned along the way and finally sold it to do another one and made a handsome profit due to the "sweat equity". I became proficient with buying & selling these homes after renovations while having my day job in the auto industry.
Eventually I developed the desire to enter the real estate industry as an appraiser. I approached an appraiser I knew and her response was" with your mechanical and technical background you should be a home inspector"... So in 2002 I became an ASHI certified Home inspector. Around that time the state had adopted new building codes so I decided to become active in Code Enforcement and became certified with the International Code Council in 13 categories: Residential Building Inspector, Residential Electrical Inspector, Residential Mechanical Inspector, Residential Plumbing Inspector, Residential Energy Inspector, Commercial Building Inspector, Commercial Electrical Inspector, Commercial Mechanical Inspector, Commercial Plumbing Inspector, Commercial Energy Inspector, Commercial Accessibility Inspector & Plans Examiner, Commercial Building Plans Examiner, Commercial Plumbing Plans Examiner.
In 2005 I was approached by the township I lived in to be the Building Code Official for the Municipality, then established a Third Party Inspection Agency with the Commonwealth and provided Code Enforcement in 12 surrounding townships. All the while we were also doing home inspections. Home inspections are and always have been my passion. I became certified as a Septic Inspector with The National Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association. A Radon Measurement Technician with the National Radon Safety Board, Building Performance Institute Certified performing Blower Door & Duct testing. Now living in South Carolina I am following my core passion of performing home inspections and only home inspections, I have dedicated my professional career to the building, housing and real estate industries and will provide you with an accurate, detailed assessment of your home purchase.
Jacob was a pleasure to work with! He is very knowledgeable, answered all my questions completely, and takes his work very seriously. Jacob's home inspection report is incredibly detailed. It's given me more confidence in the home I am looking to purchase. I would work with Jacob again without a second thought and would recommend Jake anyone purchasing a home.
Jacob is an amazing man. He was incredibly nice, super thorough inspection, and above all he cared enough to reach me about things. This was my first home inspection and I couldn’t be any happier and more pleased. Thanks again!!
I am a code official and have used Jacob as an expert inspector on many of my problem inspections. He is through and very detail oriented. His long list of credentials have proved invaluable to myself and fellow colleagues. His integrity and honesty allow me recommend his services to other inspectors as well as residents who ask for an inspector for private inspections. I have no reservations in recommending Jacob and will continue to do so.
I have used this company for both my own personal home purchases, and my clients. I continue to use this company because of his honesty, reliability, and depth of knowledge. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.
Jacob has been my primary inspector since I started selling Real Estate almost 8 years ago. He's very professional, easy to get a hold of, and does a great job. I've asked him to go above and beyond what's expected of him numerous times and he has done just that. It's great to have a team of professionals that you can count on in my line of business and Jacob is definitely a great asset to me.
