I obtained a National Higher Diploma (NQF6) in Construction Management in 1974. I was employed as a contracts manager and later as an area manager by companies such as Murray&Roberts, LTA, Stocks & Stocks, Schacht Homes and Balwin Properties.
In addition, I have over 40 years of experience in the building industry. This includes construction project management of complexes, high rise and industrial buildings, large housing township projects including roads and services, systems experience, property inspection and much more! To sum it up, during my career, I have been involved with building and inspecting every type of construction project excluding a bridge and a tunnel.
I am a certified home inspector and a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).
Therefore, I have extensive professional training to provide you with the best service you will find anywhere!
My business is not a franchise like many other inspection companies, I am the sole proprietor of my business. Moreover, to guarantee the highest inspection and report standards, I conduct all inspections myself! In addition, because I am independent and not connected with a franchiser, I can offer you far better value for money with reduced inspection fees!
You will still receive the best in-depth, detailed and comprehensive inspection report, with photos, that are easy to understand. If you are still unsure, look at how many unsolicited testimonials I have received on Facebook and Google My Business in comparison to other inspectors!
Furthermore, I use the latest technology and home inspection equipment. I also have had extensive professional training to provide you with the best service you will find anywhere!
My pricing is extremely competitive, but if you get a cheaper quote from another certified inspector or inspection company, and you feel comfortable with them then you should go with them! But please, whatever you decide to do, have an inspection for your own benefit.
I inspect properties from Johannesburg South to the north of Pretoria, as far west as Hartbeespoort and brits and as far east as Bronkhorstspruit.
My availability until 7 pm every evening on weekdays and during the day on Saturday gives you the option of having your inspection at your convenience. Furthermore, you are welcome to phone me 7 days a week to answer any questions you may have.
But one thing is certain, good home inspections and reports do require a lot of work! Most of my work in a home inspection and a report is not in the physical inspection itself but in the producing of the inspection report! Reports can take anything from 1 to 2 full days to produce!
As a result, the home inspection knowledge, skill, experience and commitment that I have are paramount in providing you with the best home inspection and report in the business. I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort and commitment when inspecting your property and producing your inspection report.
