Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. We're here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will provide you with detailed, unbiased information.

We'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

See What Our Customers Say

Although we are first-time home buyers and C.A.M. Home Inspections was recommended by our agent, we were still nervous and didn't know what to expect. Rich contacted us and explained the process and what to expect over the phone. He also made us feel very secure by suggesting we ask as many questions as we needed, as his job was to provide us with as much information in order to be more confident in our decision. The report was filled with pictures, suggestions, and very informative. Hope we're not buying another home soon, but if we do, I'd definitely use them again or recommend C.A.M. Home Inspections. Especially for a first-time home buyer.

I used Rich as an inspector for my first home purchase and recommend his services. He allowed me to visualize any issues he came across and was very well at explaining his findings that were of concern. His report at the end was very descriptive and outlined all issues that needed to be addressed. Thanks!!

Rich was friendly, communicative and thorough during our inspection. He clearly explained what he would look for and kept us informed when he saw something we should know about. Our inspection report was detailed, easy to read, and outlined mandatory and recommended changes. We enjoyed our experience working with Rich and would highly recommend him for your home inspection!

We recently had a home inspection by CAM inspections. Richard Hernandez spent over three hours looking at the home. He offered suggested to remedy the issues. The inspection was extremely thorough. The report we received later that day outlined issues that needed to be addressed. The home was in good shape but we still received an excellent report detailing everything inspected and included photos. The report came back promptly. Richard was very patient and answered all our questions on site as well as responding quickly to an email we sent him later that week.

Working with Richard was an amazing experience being a first time home buyer. Richard highly encourages to attend inspection with him. He walked me through all the things he observed and explained the problem. He was very patient with all my questions and empathetic to my first time home buyer concerns. After the inspection, Richard provided me with a very detailed report the very same day! I am a very satisfied customer and highly suggest his services.

Cam Home Inspections provided great service. Rich was our inspector, he was very professional, he made sure not to rush during our inspection and all of our questions were answered. The inspection report was greatly detailed and we could not be happier. Thank you C.A.M and Rich for making this a bit less stressful for my family.

I've needed my share of inspections and never have I ever had such a great experience!! The guys took their time to explain what they were finding, how to get it fixed (if we purchased home), covered every nook and cranny!! Saved me a ton of money by finding some foundation issues the seller was very obviously trying to hide!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Richard was not only very professional and accomplished exactly what we needed, he was very friendly and my agent wanted to use him for all her properties going forward. He's so thorough, he found many issues, and recommendations that I did not even expect would have come up. I will definitely be using his services going forward. Thanks Richard!

Rich is a very professional inspector. He nicely explained everything he was checking, and answered any questions from me. Not only any major and minor issues were detailed listed on the report, but also many useful notes taken during the checking. Really high quality job.

Very happy with the service's provided by Cam Home Inspections. Rich and his team took the time to walk me thru the process step by step. Very professional and was very helpful explaining things and terms during the inspection that I was not familiar with.
