Home Inspection

A Home Inspection is a visual process where all items typically used with a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper function or installation. The inspection usually takes about 3 hours, but can vary dependent upon the size of the home and the quality of maintenance that has been completed.

Within 24 hours of inspection a digital report, that can only be accessed by the client, is made available through our website.

We have known Rick, the owner of Matrix Home Inspection, for fourteen years. He is honest, dependable, and very knowledgeable. He has advised us on many home improvement projects and has always guided us in the right direction. We do not do any projects at our house without consulting with Rick first, and as we are considering selling our current home and buying another, we find comfort in knowing that we will be able to hire him to help us navigate the process.

Rick, you performed an extremely thorough home inspection. It is clear you are an experienced home inspector. Not only did you point out items that should be addressed in the near future during the home inspection but also provided valuable feedback of how to maintain the value of the home long term. I will most certainly be recommending you to anyone buying a house.

Rick, Ed and I would like to thank you for such a thorough and wonderful job you did on our home inspection. You really took your time in the home and with us and it shows in your very informative and detailed report. We have shown the report to quite a few people who were also very impressed with all the work you did and all the photos and details you provided. I know we will continue to use you for annual inspections on the home that we choose to purchase. Thank you again and we really appreciate you and the professionalism you displayed.

Rick showed up for the appointment early and did an thorough job inspecting my mother's house. Several items that were significant safety issues were identified that we needed to address before placing the house up for sale. He fully explained all items of concern and answered all my questions. I'd definitely recommend him to others.
