Mike has passed the National Home Inspector's Exam, which means he is qualified to work in all 50 states. The exam requires knowledge in HVAC, electrical, plumbing, structural, ventilation, roofing, exterior, interior and every other aspect of the home. Colorado is one of only 15 states in the nation that requires no licensing. Most inspectors in Colorado are not licensed.
This means Mike stands out among the home inspectors that operate in Colorado. He is simply more qualified than the majority of inspectors in the state. Inspectors in Colorado will list their credentials as "Certified but Not Licensed". To be certified in the state of Colorado, there is no real verification process to prove their experience or expertise. Unfortunately this has lead to many novices in the trade. Not only is Mike licensed, but he has 21 years of experience as a working home inspector with zero complaints, unanimously positive reviews across all platforms, and has additionally worked in many aspects of home construction, including as an electrician, HVAC repairman, and plumber.

Home Advisor User
"Would 100% recommend Mike for your inspection. As a first time home buyer there is a lot to unpack in a house. Mike was a thorough professional that not only inspected the house, but pointed out many home maintenance aspects that many home buyers do not know about. Doing an inspection with Mike is like a crash course in everything about a home. His vast experience in and around homes is apparent in his insight and keen eye during the inspection. Would highly recommend!"

"100% satisfied. Mike was extremely helpful since I am a first-time home buyer. His inspection was extremely thorough which is exactly what I wanted. His report was detailed and included tons of pictures. He patiently answered all my questions and not just about the inspection either. I learned just as much about home building and ownership as I did about my particular house. Highly recommend."
