About T R Inspections:
I am certified through ICA ( Inspection Certification Associates) Certification #17709. I am certified for Home and Light Commercial property’s.
I follow the SOP (Standards of Practice) of ASHI (America Society of Home Inspectors). My goal is to provide the client with an unbiased opinion and a good understanding of what the condition of the house is so they can make a home purchase that they are happy with For years. I give a detailed, computer generated report with pictures detailing any deficiencies.
My credits as a professional:
I have been in the construction field since 1986, Drywall, Concrete and structural steel. I have been around all phases of construction in my career. I have owned a Trucking Company also a manager for two other Trucking companies. In 1999 I took a different direction and became a Sheriffs Deputy and after a couple years went back to the Trucking/Construction Field where I enjoy working with people helping them with their goals!
I preform a visual inspection and prepare a written report of the apparent condition of the readily accessible installed systems and components of the Premises ( the house and one attached or detached garage) existing at the time of the inspection. Latent and concealed defects and deficiencies are excluded from the inspection. Sheds, outbuildings, and other accessory structures are excluded ( but can be added on for an additional fee). Installed components included in the Inspection are structural system/foundation, exterior, roof system, plumbing system, electrical system,, heating system, cooling system. (Weather Permitting) , interior, insulation and ventilation, fireplaces and solid fuel burning appliances (if present).
Im a commercial licensed sUAS PILOT (Drone) so all my home inspections include an aerial view of the roof structure.(weather permitting and FAA flight rules) This is important because most roofs can’t be walked on due to there roofing materials such as (ceramic tile/clay/ metal).
Tim was very helpful and answered all my questions. I really liked that Tim spent the time to go over everything with me about the house. He made sure I understood what was needed and was so patient and not rushed. It helped with my decision tremendously, I highly recommend him!

1. IS IT OK TO PREFORM THE INSPECTION MYSELF?
Inspecting your own potential house is not recommended. home Inspectors are specially trained to look for things you may miss. Unless you are a Home Inspector yourself, seek out a professional.
2. WHAT IS THE COST OF A HOME INSPECTION?
The cost of a home inspection usually comes out of pocket of the potential buyer. Costs can vary, depending on the size of the home and the region on which you are making your purchase. According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, a typical range might be between $300.00 and $500.00.
3. WHAT IS COVERED UNDER THE INSPECTION.
Not all home inspectors cover the same things and each state has legal requirements for home inspections. This does not guarantee that the inspector you choose will automatically inspect for those required items. Before calling your list of inspectors make sure they are certified and licensed if your state requires licensing.
4. HOW LONG WILL THE INSPECTION TAKE?
Knowing the length of time for an Inspection is important because you will usually have to arrange a time with the realtor and the current owner for the inspector to examine the house. Since an Inspection usually involves looking at pipes, wiring, roofing, and areas that may be hard to reach, it may require hours to complete. The inspector you choose should provide you with an accurate estimate of how long the Inspection is expected to take.
5. WHAT TYPE OF INSPECTION REPORT IS SUPPLIED AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
A inspection report showing that an Inspection was completed and what the inspection found is usually required before purchase. As with the specific state requirements for what is expected, there is usually a requirement for what is listed on the form.
6. IS ANYONE ALLOWED OR REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE INSPECTION.
The Home Inspection is a valuable experience for you as a home buyer and future home owner. The inspector should allow you to attend the Inspection. You will be able to see first hand what potential problems exist now or may arise soon. Knowing what looks normal and what a problem looks like will help you later in maintaining your home.
7. IS IT POSSIBLE TO FAIL AN INSPECTION?
The inspection is designed to tell you what needs to be repaired on the house. There may be some requirements that the house needs to meet in order for your financial lender to lend you the money for your home. This does not mean that the house has ”failed” the inspection and will not be able to be sold.
8. WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE ARE PROBLEMS FOUND DURING THE INSPECTION?
There are potential problems that can come up during Inspections. The seller of the home is not automatically required to repair any problems that the inspector finds. As the buyer, you can negotiate for the repairs to be made before you buy the home. If the seller is not willing to do the repairs for you, you will need to make other arrangements or terminate the contract. If you still want to purchase the house but are unable to get the financial lender to approve the loan until the repairs are made, you may have to make the repairs at your own expense.
All reports are done at the time of inspection with pictures, and can be reviewed on site and emailed usually the next day.
