Vancouver Island Home Inspector

A Home Inspector Who Didn’t Take Shortcuts

Rod took his first step into the world of real estate when he started a career in the construction industry, forming foundations and framing the underlying structures of homes. Before long, Rod completed a 4-year apprenticeship and after completion, became a certified Red Seal electrician, developing a highly specialized skill set that is an asset to his home inspections. Rod also has experience buying and selling homes, as well as doing his own renovation and remodeling work. He also completed the Carson Dunlop course with a straight A average and became a licensed home inspector. It’s safe to say that Rod took no shortcuts when it came to acquiring the knowledge to be an outstanding home inspector—and you can count on him to take no shortcuts when he inspects your home today.

Providing Excellent Customer Service

  • In the event that we’re unable to walk a home’s roofing system due to safety issues, we won’t just leave it off the final inspection report—instead, we’ll use our aerial drone whenever necessary to photograph the roof and carry out the inspection as intended
  • If you’d like a more direct route for understanding your prospective home’s condition, you’re welcome to attend your inspection to follow along through the entire process
  • Customers who have additional questions about their inspection report can call us anytime, whether it’s the next day or months afterward

When he’s not inspecting homes, Rod loves to go fishing, hunting, and camping. Rod and his wife own and care for a little hobby farm with chickens and goats—and they like foraging for mushrooms as a shared hobby. They also enjoy going to car shows with his 1966 Chevelle SS that Rod and his father restored.
