Matt Cantor, a graduate of the University of California (Cal) Berkeley's College of Environmental Design, has been performing inspections since 1988. Matt's area of expertise is centered on the retrofitting and upgrading of early 20th century houses, with special emphasis on seismic issues, energy conservation (green remodeling) and moisture intrusion issues. Matt has been featured on six episodes of HGTV's "House Detective" program and is a weekly columnist for the Berkeley Daily Planet, where his humorously informative articles about home ownership, remodeling and maintenance are read, collected and used to line birdcages throughout the Bay Area.
