Jacob Troost
Owner/Inspector ASHI Certified
State Lic.# RB49660
Click here to verify your home inspector is part of ASHI.

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 Building 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’m continuing to persue my passion of performing building code and 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 property purchase.
