We used Chuk from Status Inspection & Design for our home inspection based on the good reviews and word of mouth. He's self-employed and doesn't work with realtors. He works for the buyer so your getting an honest inspection report. Chuk is professional, thorough, honest and knowledgeable.

He's a dedicated, intelligent inspector who knows his stuff. You will not...

I have used Chuk for many inspections over the years for both single family homes and multi-family buildings and I can tell you that the depth and detail of his inspections are like no other. I highly recommend using Status Inspections and Design if you are in need of any sort of home inspection!
