When you buy a home, one of the questions that eventually comes up is who you are going to get to inspect it for you. A good inspector will find things that can be bargaining chips in the final closing, or warnings to stay away, depending on what kind of person you are. A bad inspector will give the green light after taking your money, leaving you with plenty of bad problems down the line.
Compliance Inspection Service is run extremely professionally - and that can be frustrating at times. Gerrit P Van Ness, the inspector I worked with, has been doing inspections for 20 years, and was a general contractor for 20 years before that, all in the Seattle area. As a result, he knows a lot of businesses around and who to go to and who *not* to go to. While he'll share the latter list with you, he won't recommend good people to fix the problems he finds, citing a conflict of interest. Professional, respectable.... but frustrating.
Still, the guy knows his stuff and quickly writes out a report, giving you plenty of ammo for the closing deals.
