What Does "Deck Plate" Mean?

"Deck Plate" is an old navy term coined to describe leaders who know their mission, their people, and develop their people beyond expectations to work as a team and as individuals.  We go beyond checking off boxes, time limits, and the quick hello.  we have hands-on construction experience and promise to empower you with the information you need about the home you are considering.

how can we serve you?

we offer the best team and services.  one call does it all.  our office manager is on standby via phone, text, live chat, or email to discuss your home inspection needs.   

our services include:  home inspections for buyers and sellers, radon, mold, water, well and septic, chimney, sewer scope, termite, and Baltimore county rental inspection.  

all of our full home inspections come with a free warranty package which includes:  90 day warranty, moldsafe, platinum roof protection, sewergard, recallchek, and a homeowners resource for getting set up in your new home.  sellers who order a home inspection also receive the warranties which are transferable to the buyer.  

buying or selling a home is 

one of the biggest decisions you will ever make.  

it is not the time to shop for a cheap inspection.  the cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the value of the home being inspected.  if you are purchasing or considering selling, you have been doing a lot of number crunching:  closing costs, mortgage loans, contractors, etc.  we have the experience, years, and credentials to complete the best inspection for you with the best tools to identify potentially costly issues during the buying or selling process.  we earn our fees many times over.  we charge more but we do more for you.
