Home Inspections You Can Trust

Sentinel Inspection Services in Livermore, CA

Don't trust a review of your biggest asset to just any provider. Sentinel Inspection Services has been providing expert analysis of Bay Area residential properties since 1989. We know the market, we have proven expertise, and we'll give you the critical information you need to value your property.

As the owner of Sentinel Inspection Services, I value your time and concerns; giving you my utmost and exceeding your expectations. You can count on the fact that I have knowledge of the important issues regarding inspections pertinent to the sale or purchase of the home and property.

I have made the commitment to conduct thorough home inspections for buyers and sellers (for pre-sale inspections) in order to evaluate the residence; a family's most valued asset. For the real estate professional looking out for their clients' best interests, I have had the pleasure of nearly twenty years of experience working with some of the best in the industry. This has given me insight into what you expect in the inspection and the report.

I give my clients the personal touch that the larger home inspection companies (with numerous employees) generally don't give – the diligence and high standards of a man who has spent the last twenty years building an enduring reputation of excellence. And I don't forget about your property at the end of the work day, but I continue to walk the residence and property in my mind's eye to reflect on items that deserve more than a quick and casual evaluation.

I have found that my inspections will generally take longer than those of most inspectors. Why? Because I want to know that every concern my clients have about the property is addressed to their satisfaction. You can count on the fact that the residence will be comprehensively examined and that your interests will be diligently served. That's why my motto is and always will be, "Inspected Once, Inspected Right!"
