15 Years of Hands-On Construction Experience

Before pursuing his current career as a licensed home inspector, Bruce worked for 15 years in various construction trades. He has experience with home construction and remodeling. This experience and the wealth of knowledge he gained on the job allows Bruce to go above and beyond what is expected of him as a home inspector. He enjoys taking his time to answer customer questions about repair and maintenance, and because of his background as a firefighter, he always keeps an eye out for safety issues.
