Qualifications

Background and Knowledge

Having a qualified home inspector is very important. I am a skilled 3rd generation tradesman in the heating, air conditioning, and plumbing field. As a graduate in HVAC, I worked for a family business in Plumbing, Heating, and Electrical for 15+ years. My main position was an HVAC installer and service technician. Along with being experienced in those fields, I also participated in other building activities over the last 20 + years. These include, but not limited to: roofing, siding, framing, flooring, concrete, landscaping, decking, windows and doors and other various building activities. I have sense then become licensed in Wisconsin for Home Inspection. I continue to educate myself in various building related aspects and take great pride in staying informed.

Time Commitment

JDH Inspections LLC is a full-time inspection company. Home Inspection is very important to me and I strive to stay knowledgeable in the field.  I am a member of The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (interNACHI), and Wisconsin Association of Home Inspectors (WAHI). I adhere to Wisconsin’s Standards of Practice.  Being a member of inspector affiliations helps me improve my services and keeps me informed.
