About Our Inspector & Owner of PRS
Paul R. Suhrie has over 35 years of experience in home repairs, remodels and construction.
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Home Inspection?
A professional inspection is a competent and thorough evaluation of the condition of the structure, systems, and components of a home. Materials used, construction quality and maintenance are some of the considerations of the inspection.
Do I need a Home Inspector?
Your purchase of a home is a large investment. Once you have chosen a house you like, evaluate it carefully. You have the right to know any information affecting the value and desirability of the property. One thing all home buyers have in common is a desire to know as much as possible about their prospective home.
After the purchase agreement has been accepted, we can typically schedule a time within several days of your call. We are available six days a week, allowing you to book the inspection, have it conducted, and the report delivered well within your time limit.
