CRAIG SHIPLE

HOME INSPECTION - SENIOR TECHNICAL CONSULTANT

<p>Craig has been with HouseMaster over 29 years. He is also our senior techncal consultant.</p>
The inspector took the time to explain in lay mans terms the result of the inspection. Since I live out of state, he had to take extra time explaining everything over the telephone. He offered a very professional conclusion to my pending issues with the property and I decided to proceed with the purchase . It is assuring to know what condition a property is in before you buy it. Thank you for going the extra mile

– Joseph Vessichio

The inspector was very professional and thorough. He answered all of our questions and took time out to actually explain different things. We were very blessed to have such an experienced and professional do our inspection.

– Lonnie & Crystal Rachal

The inspection was extremely thorough and professional. Not being familiar with construction in Florida(it's a little different than in New York),I was present for the inspection. Steve was friendly and took the time to explain what he was checking for and why. I highly recommend House Master.

– Patrick/Linda McBride

Our Inspector was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I sell real estate and am adding HouseMasters to my list of inspectors for buyers to consider. Thanks!

– Jan Fergerson

I have used them twice. Both times I got a great report, detailed, in a timely manner. They are extremely professional, and always quick in giving feedback.

PRIVATE WATER

A private on-site water supply (well) system inspection involves an inspection of visible interior pumps, piping, pressure and/or storage tanks and an assessment of the water flow (volume/pressure) from representative fixtures based on a representative water draw from plumbing fixtures. A well inspection does not include inspection of any buried or concealed components, determination of the water supply/source adequacy (yield or well capacity) or water quality.

LEAD PAINT SCREENING

Screening includes: Sample paint on surfaces inside and/or outside of the home following recognized protocol, certified lab analysis. Not intended to determine whether lead is a hazard; rather it determines whether sampled surfaces contain lead-based paint. Sampling can include bulk sampling or use of x-ray fluorescence equipment.

Includes review of the roof, flashings, insulation issues, heating and air conditioning units, grading, the proper function of appliances and plumbing, electric components, smoke alarms for deferred maintenance and recommended action. 

WIND MITIGATION

Wind mitigation inspections are conducted to identify whether construction features that have been shown to reduce losses in hurricanes, such as a roof framing connectors, gable end bracing, impact resistant windows, shutters and opening protection, and secondary water resistance barrier are present. Homes with wind mitigation reports indicating the presence of features to minimize wind damage can qualify for insurance discounts. Performed by individuals that meet training and certification requirements.

THERMAL IMAGING

Thermal imaging services make use of an infrared imaging camera that can detect the thermal energy (heat) emitted from an object. Thermal imaging measurements indicate temperature differentials that may help diagnose a myriad of potential concerns in a home or building such as heat loss or gain and waste leakage.
