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.

Questions and Answers

  • What types of jobs are the most common?
Buyers of homes that plan to live in the home being inspected. Investors are the 2nd most common.
  • What are you most proud of?
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.
  • What is important to know about your profession?
We do not warrant items to last for periods of time. That is what Home Warranties are for.
  • How many projects do you average in a year?
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.
  • What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
An idea of pricing for the service. The lowest price is never the best inspector and the highest price is a never worth it.
  • How did you get started?
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.
  • What we may not know about you?
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.
  • What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
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.
