Highly knowledgeable and highly recommended. Andrew Watson spent two hours thorghlyly inspecting every part of my house and then walked the property with me explaining concerns and priorities. He followed up with a highly detailed report within a day or two. Great experience!

We had Andrew come out to our newly built home about 2 weeks ago, we were very happy with Andrews professionalism and attention to small details, he even found issues that the county inspector did not find so he is very thorough. We will definitely recommend him to others. Great work and a great guy!

  • Common Sense and Common Courtesy- We hold ourselves to a higher standard by applying common sense and being courteous to all. This includes the Buyer, Seller, and Agent. We know the little things matter to you, such as wearing boot covers to protect your floors and cleaning up after ourselves. 

  • Precise Timing- We believe that if we are not early, we are late! The seller vacated the premises for the scheduled appointment, while the buyer took time off work to be present for the inspection. The agent may have back to back meetings; there is no reason your home inspector should be late. However, life happens, which may result in a lack of punctuality on our end. This is why we offer an "On Time Promise". Because we hold ourselves to a higher standard, you will be discounted $50 from your inspection price if we arrive late.

  • A Non-Invasive Home Inspection- We will be assessing the condition of your home using visual observations, simple tools, and normal homeowner operational controls. We will then report deficiencies of specific systems and components. However, the home inspection is not technically exhaustive and does not identify concealed conditions or latent defects. Unfortunately, we do not have x-ray vision and currently do not have the ability to predict the future! We follow the Washington State Standards of Practice to ensure each inspection is completed thoroughly, delivering a consistent product each and every time.

  • A Professionally Compiled Report- Verbally communicating the status of your inspection is not enough. You have a lot on your mind and can't be expected to remember every detail you were told during a 2-3 hour inspection. This is why you will be emailed a PDF file containing a detailed home inspection report within 24-48 hours. It will contain basic information including the type of utilities your home uses, as well as descriptions of defects found during the inspection with plenty of corresponding photos.

"A specialist is a man who knows more and more about less and less."
-William J. Mayo
To say Andrew is a specialist is a general misunderstanding. A specialist would be an expert in a particular field, a master of a craft after thousands of hours of practice. A guy like Andrew doesn't have the patience, time, or desire to master a specific discipline. Instead, he is knowledgeable in a general sense. He knows when something is off based upon his attention to detail. After a thorough evaluation, he can tell you what is wrong, what could go wrong, and why. Although Andrew is stuffed full of generalist knowledge, he knows his limitations and he knows when to call upon the experts. While Andrew is neither a master nor a specialist, he can point you in the right direction when one is needed. After all, he is here to help. Unless you plan on hiring a panel of specialists, everyone in the process of buying a home should call upon an Andrew.
-Common Concerns Home Inspections

Born with a desire to take life by the reins, it was always inevitable that Andrew become a business owner. Raised alongside his sister by a single mother who owned a local business, attention to detail was a necessity in his household. Ethics were taught; integrity was practiced. Timeliness was learned by example and a willingness to help was always appreciated.

Much of these early lessons shaped the way Andrew currently conducts business. With hands-on experience in residential construction, the foundation of his knowledge resides in a solid understanding of building a home. Communication is crucial in the home inspection industry and it is of near equal importance to sustain the mindset of a student as it is a teacher. Each inspection starts with an objective mindset and concludes with a customer whose expectations have been exceeded and who holds no doubt in their choice of a home inspection company. Andrew understands that customer service is lacking in many fields and vows to exceed the expectation of his clients and colleagues by providing an extraordinary experience.
