Purchasing a home is a life decision. A comprehensive inspection is essential in making that decision.
Choose Experience. I have inspected over 300 homes in Northern New Mexico in the last two and a half years. With a background in the building trades, experience enables me to provide you the information necessary to make that decision with reporting that is clear and concise.
Whether your investment is a traditional adobe home or a mountain vacation residence, the particular qualities associated with these different building techniques require certain attention.
In Taos, adobe style homes have their vulnerabilities in flat roof and parapet construction, exterior masonry or acrylic stucco, and radiant heating systems installed with outdated Entran II or KITEC/IPEX components. Additionally, many nuances may lay in passive solar design and alternative building materials.
In Angel Fire, homesites for construction are often located hillside or on slope where factors of adequate lot drainage, moisture intrusion into the crawlspace and forms of typical settling are areas of concern. Additionally, exterior deck and balcony components should be inspected for proper fasteners at joist and ledger attachments and contact with surrounding soils.
Your home inspection report will detail conditions, limitations and recommendations for:
Roofing & Attic areas
Exterior & Drainage
Structure & Foundation
Heating & Fireplace
Interior & Appliance
Reports include exploratory photos, highlighted links, illustrations & reference library in a downloadable PDF format.

"Wow. As a real estate investor and homeowner, working with Patrick has been the best inspector experience I have ever had. He was thorough in investigating the property and took the time to make sure that I understood every aspect of the setup of a potential real estate purpose. Easy to communicate with, appointment set up with ease, arrived on time, and spent the time it took to ensure that I understood every detail of a potential buy. I would highly recommend him and most definitely will be calling him again.”
