CARNES HOME INSPECTIONS
Put 30 years of construction experience to work for you
My name is Kim Carnes and I would be honored to inspect your home. I have been building and inspecting homes, condos, and construction work most of my life. I look forward to helping you better understand your home with a complete and honest inspection.
My process is not like many of the larger companies. Many home inspectors walk through the house with an inspection checklist and are done in no time at all. My inspections often take 3-5 hours and I welcome you to join me in the process so I can answer any questions you may have about the house inspection or items I mark down on my home inspection report.
I will go out of my way to ensure you feel comfortable about the home inspection process. I want you to understand what we look for in a home inspection, how I complete the inspection, I want to leave you with a better understanding of what problems may be present and what problems may arise so you can make informed decisions. I will do whatever it takes to achieve that. Come with me, call me afterwards with questions, call me in two years for advice on replacing light fixtures, call me in ten years to inspect your house before you sell it, call me whenever you have a questions about your home, because once you are a customer…you are a customer for life!

Most importantly I have been around construction nearly my entire life. I have been a part of the construction, remodeling, renovation, inspecting, repairing, buying, and selling of nearly every sort of structure, both residential and commercial. From modular homes to multi-million dollar homes, apartments, office buildings, and even retail buildings, I have extensive knowledge about the construction process and how the insides of a building work. Have a question about the home inspection process or what we look for in a home inspection? Give me a call. I am more than happy to walk you through what to look for in a home inspection and how you can be sure that your house has been thoroughly checked by a qualified inspector. My job is not done until you are satisfied and comfortable with the inspection process.
