At Higher Ground Inspections I know that buying a home is one of the largest, most stressful decisions you will ever make. It comes with uncertainty and wondering if everything is OK. At Higher Ground Inspections I never forget that. My goal is to give you the peace of mind you’re searching for. ​ That peace of mind starts with knowing that I am knowledgeable, properly trained, and licensed; as required by the state of Alabama. As a licensed home inspector, I’m certified by the American Home Inspector Training Institute (AHIT) and am a member in good standing of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). I continually strive to maintain my knowledge of current standards and practices so that I can offer you a complete and comprehensive inspection. My unique inspection process is more than just a thorough evaluation of your new home from top to bottom.
