Coronavirus and Home Inspections

Portland Property Inspectors has instituted the following changes to our home inspection process, including but not limited to:

  • Due to current social distancing precautions, we prefer to do the inspections solo, and are foregoing  walk throughs typically done with the client/agent at the end of the  inspection.  We are taking extra pictures, and as always are available  for any questions.  We will be following up on all inspections with a  phone call(which we typically do anyway). 
  • We no longer bring our tool bags or blankets inside homes.  Any tools used get  sterilized prior to and immediately after the inspection.  Including vehicles, keys,  phones, etc.
  • We have quit carrying a wallet or cash, and sterilize the single card we carry after any use.
  • Our clothing and shoe covers are washed in hot water and bleached between each inspection.
  • We can't use gloves during inspection(it's done on our phones), but we are  washing our hands about every 30 minutes during inspection or after anything suspect is touched. 
  • Forthcoming travel restrictions may affect my business.

These measures are being taken to limit exposure between all parties of the home inspection process.    Thank you for your understanding in these weird times.


-Ryan, Owner

Knowledgeable Home Inspector Experts

  

A certified home inspection will take 2-4 hours to conduct, depending on the size and condition of the home, and how many questions our clients have (we love questions!).  For first time home buyers, our home inspections provide an excellent education on home ownership and home maintenance.  For the more experienced home buyer, we’ll focus more on major issues and general building science. We take digital photos throughout the inspection and include them in our home inspection report, along with several helpful diagrams and illustrations.  All of our home inspections include a pest and dry rot analysis with the State of Oregon approved NPMA 33 form.   We also offer radon testing in Portland and some surrounding areas.  Following the home inspection, our reports are securely posted online and available for download in Adobe Acrobat format.  Our clients control who has access to their home inspection reports.


Below is a sample home inspection report (this is an actual report from our home inspector in Portland, with the address and client information removed, cover picture changed as well). 


Our lead home inspector, Ryan Edmiston CCB 209403 / OCHI 1865, has been in the real estate and residential construction industry since 2003. As a current Oregon and former Colorado licensed contractor, and former Colorado licensed employing real estate broker , Ryan has been involved with many aspects of real estate sales and construction.  Prior to opening Portland Property Inspectors, Ryan owned and operated his own construction and real estate companies; buying, renovating, and selling distressed properties.  His construction company also did residential kitchen and bathroom remodeling.  Ryan also spent several years during the 2008 housing crisis working for many of the nation's largest mortgage lenders evaluating post auction foreclosed properties.  Ryan brings many years of home inspection experience to the table.  He can also talk to you for hours about Land Cruisers, and restores several a year during the slow season(including the FJ62 and FZJ80's on this page).

"We  are buying our third home and we had no idea that a home inspection  could be so thorough and useful. The inspector spent 4.5 hours on our  pre-purchase inspection and produced an amazingly complete report with  recommendations, photos, and detailed analysis. He put issues into  perspective so that we were not inclined to put  too much weight on the inconsequential or to be too casual about the  essential. Not only that, he took the time to explain the findings, the  causes, and the possible outcomes of making or choosing not to make  corrections. When confronting a major decision  like home buying, is well worth the very reasonable fee for such  valuable information. It's not often in life that we get such a thorough  analysis of possible outcomes and thus feel confident that we know what  we're getting into. Portland Property Inspectors  provide an essential service and was far superior to the home  inspections we've had in the past "

"Ryan did an amazing job inspecting our older home. He took the time to walk through some of the quirks with me and I had a much better understanding of the property after this throughout inspection. He's a great communicator and I highly recommend working with him!

 "I feel very fortunate my realtor found Ryan.  The whole experience was  positive.  I felt like Ryan was watching out for my best welfare and wanted to do what ever it took to make me happy.  This gentleman is outstanding in expertise, thorough, super responsive, & an excellent communicator, which is a very rare combination.  The comprehensive report[s] came quickly. He  called me timely and explained his findings in detail providing me all the phone time I needed to understand.  I emailed some follow-up questions I thought of afterward and he got back to me with answers almost immediately on a Saturday.   Bravo!"
