Meet Your Inspector:
Paul is a certified and licensed professional home inspector with over 18 years of experience in residential building trades. He completed his certification through Inspection Certification Associates (ICA) School, as well as a second certification through the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). He was tested by and licensed through the Examination Board of Professional Home Inspectors (EBPHI). Paul is an active member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, as well as a member of MIBOR Realtor Association. He holds several additional certifications in residential inspections, some of which include being a Certified Infrared Thermal Imager, Registered Repair Verification Inspector and Home Energy Auditor.
Paul began his training in 2004 with the New Buffalo High School Building Trades where he and his fellow classmates collectively built a house from the ground up. Paul has since professionally installed, repaired, or replaced components in countless residential systems including roofing, masonry/stonework, tile, decks/porches, framing, drywall/interior covering, electrical, plumbing, insulation/ventilation, carpet, hardwood, windows/doors, kitchen appliances, cabinets/countertops, exterior siding and more.
Paul happily resides in New Palestine, IN with his wife, Kathryn, and their two boys. Paul also works as a nurse in orthopedic surgery and his nursing career spans more than 15 years. His background as a nurse, coupled with his extensive experience in residential construction naturally developed into his career as a home inspector. He approaches every house the same way he would a patient; both presenting signs and symptoms that tell a deeper story. He also approaches every home inspection report just as he would a medical record; requiring clear communication that relays crucial information to any future caregiver.
Paul’s Father, a retired engineer of more than 30 years, instilled a principle in him to inspect the quality and proper design of anything he sees. Paul has never forgotten his Father’s lessons, and his eye has been trained his entire life to “look for the defects”, especially when it comes to homes. As new home construction building practices change year to year, adopting cheaper, faster and more efficient methods, the standards of quality can be harder to maintain. This is why one of Paul’s die-hard passions is insure that while homes may change, their quality shouldn’t.
