Why a Licensed Civil Engineer?
A civil engineer has specialized training related to your home, from the foundation to the roof, from the soils to the plumbing. A licensed engineer combines training with extensive experience, and has passed a rigorous exam earning the letters “PE”, or Professional Engineer after their name. There is simply no one with better qualified to inspect your home. By law, only a licensed engineer can use the term "Engineer" in business.
Why Kemp Home Inspections?
Any home inspection done in accordance with the major home inspection standards (NAHI,ASHI, NACHI) requires a structural inspection as part of the standard home inspection. What does this mean? Well, it means your inspector will look for signs of structural problems: cracks in the foundation, damage to floor joists, cracks in the slab, broken or damaged roof trusses and roof rafters, or problems with the framing. If an inspector identifies problem with any of these, they will usually recommend a structural engineer to assess the situation.
But that doesn’t help you much. Because you want to know if the house is okay to buy.
That’s where Kemp Home Inspections can help. We ARE the structural experts who get called in to make the difficult assessment.
Home inspectors come from many backgrounds and levels of education. Some inspectors come from the handyman industry, others might be carpenters, you might find a former cab driver turned inspector or even accountant. In some states there is no educational requirement for a home inspector, such as Virginia or DC. In Maryland a high school diploma is required.
At Kemp Home Inspections you get a licensed Engineer. An engineer with 15 years of experience and broad real estate knowledge. I have experience in all phases of building construction: design, construction, inspection, and repairs.
