Jeff Sand, Certified Professional Inspector
InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector, with additional certifications in Radon Testing and Home Energy Inspections. In an otherwise unregulated industry, I have completed the training and exams required by the industry-leading certifying organization, including peer-reviewed inspection reports.
Certified Radon Measurement Professional. This means my radon machines are regularly calibrated/tested and I have passed a performance test and rigorous exam proving I know how to administer and interpret tests.
Former Licensed General Contractor and owner of Sand Building and Restoration, Inc. Licensure required documented experience across a range of trades, maintaining strict professional standandards and demonstrated understanding of all phases of construction from blueprints through finish work.
Years of Hands-On Experience. From an early age, I went to work with my dad, installing kitchen appliances, modifying kitchens and remodelling homes. I bought toy cars with my first $20 tip. I then went on to work on framing crews, actually reading blueprints, demoing roofs, cutting wood members and securing them with nail guns. I have walked into more homes than I can count, gaining an understanding of homes a person can't get from books or classes. I ranged beyond my blue collar upbringing, working my way through 2 college degrees, learned violin making and taught in schools for 5 years, but my roots and ethos are in working with homes and the people who live in them.
General Contractor and Business Owner. As co-owner of Sand Building and Restoration Inc., I signed the contracts with homeowners and the buck stopped with me when issues came up on a job site. I know how imprtant it is to say what I will do and do what I say.
Integrity. I serve my clients. Buying a home is a big deal and you hire me to ensure the safety of you, your family and your investment. I have no disclosed or undisclosed financial arrangements with anybody but you.
Thoroughness. Every inspection I perform is bound by industry-leading Standards of Practice and I use moisture readers, thermal imaging cameras, carbon monoxide detectors, outlet testers and other specialized tools that allow me to maximize what I can observe and clearly communicate to you.
Timeliness. I'll be there when I say I will. You'll get your reports on time.
