"What You Don't Know CAN Hurt You"

Buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you will ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the home being inspected. We are determined to perform inspections of the upmost quality, with integrity. For a buyer, we make sure that they know and understand every fact about the property that they are purchasing. For sellers, we will provide a report that gives 100% full disclosure, with no worries if a buyer coming back and questioning anything regarding the property. We are a leading home inspection company in Colorado Springs, CO. We conduct home inspections in Colorado Springs, Black Forest, Castle Rock, Falcon, the Fountain Valley, Palmer Lake, Monument, Manitou Springs, Woodland Park, Woodmoor, the Pike’s Peak Region, El Paso County, Douglas County, Jefferson County and Pueblo County. Due to our reputation and attention to detail, we’ve even been hired to do home inspections as far away as Ohio.

Review by Jack T. in Colorado Springs, CO
Project: Inspect a Home
Fred missed a big mold infestation that was under the kitchen sink in our new home. He's very unprofessional when discussing what he will cover even though he indicated the he would "make it right" and that he missed the mold during inspection. The mold remediation and repair is costing about $6k. Fred did pay for the remediation, but not the repairs. He also missed an extremely rusted window well that will require replacement. Overall not a company I would recommend.

Project: Inspect a Home
Fred is an absolute master of his craft and did an awesome job walking us through the home and finding areas of concern. He is great at explaining issues in layman's terms and his inspection report was very thorough - he writes them narrative style instead of just checking boxes and includes a ton of pictures. Fred isn't the cheapest inspector but in my humble opinion a home inspection is not the time to pinch pennies. Thank you very much Fred!

Review by in Aurora, CO
Project: Inspect a Home
Fred is an extremely knowledgable profesional, he was very detail oriented and spent 4 hours going theorly through the house, examining every corner and pointing all the problems in his inspection, he goes up to the roof through the all cellar, he discovered termits and even examining if they have pool permits in the county to do improvements. He is extraordinary in his craft.

Project: Inspect a Home
Fred was very informative and walked me through the process. He showed me issues that may need to be addressed and listed them in order of importance. He was very thorough and made sure i understood what he was explaining. The price was fair and I was very happy with the work. I will recommend him to my friends and anyone who asks me. Thank you, Fred for a great experience.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
