truly an expert

Rusty is as good as it gets..... so much so that he actually teaches other inspectors classes. I am happy our paths crossed and plan to have him come out and do short follow up inspections to make sure I am maintaining my investment. Thank you for your knowledge and service Rusty! The Becks

explained everything

Rusty was fantastic for inspection on a Condo. He was able to quickly fit me in as I had a limited window to get the inspection done. Rusty was very informative during the inspection and explained everything he was checking, why, and how it works. He provided helpful tips along the way about maintenance, potential problems that may arise, and how to address. Not being familiar with HVAC and plumbing components, the information was invaluable and could pay dividends later on. The final report was very detailed and captured everything we went through. If I need this type of service again, without a doubt I would look to Rusty!

a great experience
