InterNACHI Certified, VA Licensed Home Inspector, VA NRS Certified (New Residential Structures)
“…the best home inspectors combine their skill with a natural curiosity and integrity.”
Wrigley Home Inspections provides me the opportunity to meet new customers, realtors, and sellers throughout the entire Northern Virginia region. Learning a methodical inspecting protocol and developing it further benefits my customers with a clear, detailed, informed picture, and current status of the home on the day of the inspection.
When my wife Lisa and I were buying our first place, our home inspection report identified two defects that enabled us to negotiate a lower purchasing price. Unfortunately, the home inspector did not explain the importance of immediately correcting those defective items. Delaying the repairs in a timely fashion ended up costing us three times the amount of money that we saved on the purchase. This was an expensive lesson that I share with all my customers. Understanding your inspection report matters.
Information is power. My goal is to help you make smart decisions that serve you and your family best for the short and long run. Sharing my knowledge with my customers is personally fulfilling. The best home inspectors combine their skill with a natural curiosity and integrity.
I am committed to providing you a thorough home inspection in a professional and instructive manner. I remain current with the industry’s best practices through continuing education and certifications. Below is a sampling of my certifications, which exceed Virginia state licensure requirements.
Take a look at my sample report and compare it to my competitors. I chose Spectora home inspection report-writing software after trying several different company’s applications. Your full report will be clear, and easy to understand and read. There will be an easy-to-access summary at the beginning of the report, which is one of the reasons realtors love this report; it allows them to readily identify the important issues. Wrigley Home Inspections is always available via phone, email, or text to answer any of your questions.
I research and test all tools and equipment before deciding which ones get to come along on my inspections. A home inspector’s tools and equipment need to work consistently and accurately during every inspection. For this reason, I always carry backup tools and equipment to ensure each inspection moves forward smoothly.
“It takes less time to do a thing right than to explain why you did it wrong.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
My prices are based on the square footage, age, and particular variables within the home. You will find that they are competitive and fair. Just after being licensed, I was offered a job by large national home inspection company that charged a flat rate for any single-family home. They actually expected me to complete any inspection in less than 2.5 hours regardless of the square footage. I’m a believer in the old adage, “You get what you pay for…” A professional and thorough home inspection can save you thousands of dollars in the short or long term. When you schedule your home inspection online, a price guideline is provided; however, your contract will include the exact cost.
Fifty percent (50% ) of home inspectors started in the trades and I fall into this group. I owned and operated a residential contracting business in Northern Virginia for over twenty years. I am innately curious and love to learn new things. Home Inspecting is a perfect fit for what I love doing: learning, teaching, and helping others.
When it is crunch-time and your closing is nearing, I want you to know you can count on me being available for any questions you might have. I have access to your report, wherever I am, so answering your questions can be addressed easily and immediately.
