About Me

I hear very often what others thoughts are on home inspections and home inspectors in general. I try to change that perception on each and every inspection I perform. My inspection isn’t a “checklist” hit the high spots style of inspection.  I meticulously evaluate and report on every portion and component of the home I possibly can. I’m at the home for one reason…YOU! It’s my job to inform you of the condition of all aspects of the home, and most importantly that the home is safe for you and your family. There’s one thing I can guarantee…you’ll get my very best!

Experience

  • I started in the construction industry in the late 90’s and shadowed my stepfather doing remodeling projects. After three years of working with my stepfather, I knew I had a passion for building and working with my hands, so I obtained a business license and purchased a truck and tools, and started off on my own.

  • For the next several years I subcontracted for several companies around the Tri-Cities, eventually subcontracting with Lowe’s Home Improvements, where I stayed for over seven years. Lowe’s corporate knew of the pride in which I conducted my work, and would use me to “repair” installations that other contractors had conducted, where the client was unhappy.

  • In 2009, I was chosen out of the Southeast region to represent Lowe’s and Pella Windows, by installing windows and doors for ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover.

  • In 2010, I left Lowe’s, and obtained my Home Improvement Contractor’s license and started Professional Exteriors LLC; a remodeling company based out of Kingsport, TN.

  • I have always been detailed, been a perfectionist, and had a hands on mentality. I apply these fundamentals with my experience and my passion for this industry, to give you the best Home Inspection Experience possible!
