MEET HOUSEMASTER OWNER AND HOME INSPECTOR JOSH SADOWSKI

OWNER/INSPECTOR

<p>Hello, my name is Josh Sadowski and I am the owner of HouseMaster of Melbourne. I have been a resident of the Space Coast for over 30 years and am very excited to be able to further serve the community in my partnership with HouseMaster. I have a Mechanical Engineering degree from the Florida Institute of Technology and have been doing residential and commercial remodeling and construction on the side since I was very young. In my professional career I spent some time in Houston as an ME designing, building, and operating subsea tools for the oil and gas industry. I loved my work there but truly missed the Melbourne lifestyle and great people in this community, so I returned to the area as a Quality Engineer at Northrop Grumman Corporation. After over 6 years in corporate America, I decided to switch career paths and invest in ways to help the community. After seeing the HouseMaster method and all the great benefits that we can offer our customers it was a natural choice with my background and expertise. I look forward to earning your business and making a positive impact to the Space Coast.</p>

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.

SEWER SCANS

Sewer inspection services can help give both homebuyers and homeowners piece of mind regarding this critical but otherwise unobservable component of a home. With the aging of the housing market, there is an increasing number of homes with sewer lines that are subject to blockage or collapse from tree roots, soil settlement/erosion and other factors. The only way to adequately assess these potential concerns short of excavation is by inspecting a sewer using video camera equipment.
