About Northern Inspections

Northern Inspections is a sole proprietorship. When you call for an inspector, you get the owner, not an employee, a newbie, or a laid-off carpenter waiting out the housing slowdown.

I have personally inspected over 3,000 properties since 1996. I perform inspections on homes and commercial buildings. I will do full or limited inspections.

I will inspect property all over the metro Atlanta area and out of the area fairly far. Beyond a certain radius, I add a small fee for gas/mileage.


I am a general property inspector. I inspect Homes and commercial buildings. Commercial can be very different from residential. I have been doing residential inspections for 16 years and commercial for 14 years.

Services offered

Buyers of homes that plan to live in the home being inspected. Investors are the 2nd most common.

I inspected a commercial building that had high utility bills and show the client how to lower his electric bill by 15% for rest of his time in that site.

We do not warrant items to last for periods of time. That is what Home Warranties are for.

About 300 per year of all types. In the days before the real estate collapse it was closer to 400. I never schedule more than 2 in a day unlike some inspectors who schedule 3 or 4.

An idea of pricing for the service. The lowest price is never the best inspector and the highest price is a never worth it.

I started when a co-worker who knew I was very mechanically inclined asked me to look at home he was buying. Prior to that I did not the filed existed, since I myself would have the need for an inspector.

I have performed work in every trade basically and had it inspected by city inspectors on homes I personally renovated and "flipped".

There is no 2 or 3 that stand out. Customers ask hundreds of questions of home inspectors.

Most important is how long have they been doing inspections and how many have they performed personally.

I have performed over 3500 inspections since 1996.

I offer free lifetime consultation for as long as they own the property. Clients can call me about maintenance issues or general repair questions.
