I (Kary) have been in the home inspection business for over 12 years, performing over 5000 home inspections. Growing up my father was a builder/contractor so I went to work in residential construction at the young age of 12 years old. Even though I got out of the business as my primary source of income for 14 years I always had my hand in it some way or another. My wife and I built four houses for ourselves over the years and that was us doing all of the work. When I first started in the industry with my father we did most of the work needed, hiring very few subs. Not only did we frame, trim and build the cabinets, we did the plumbing, electrical, roofing, HVAC systems, flooring, etc. I carry the same values in my home inspection business that my father taught me (if you are not going to do it right then don’t do it at all, it takes just as long to fix it as it does to do it right the first time).
My son Eric joined me in this business in April 2015. He has been in the residential and commercial construction industry for the past 12 years. In the state of Louisiana all home inspectors are required to do ten home inspections with a certified trainer like myself. Eric was trained extensively by me and has completed over 150 inspections under my close supervision before allowing him to do inspections independently.
