About Us


There are dozens of home inspection companies in Portland, but we set ourselves apart by setting high standards for our Home Inspectors in the thoroughness of our inspections, and the detail of our reports. PDX Inspect has always been a referral only business. All of our "advertising" comes from our previous clients.

What makes us different is our highly qualified consultants who utilize the latest technology and balance hi-tech with old fashion know-how. Some of the tools of our trade include: laptop and hand held computers, digital cameras, moisture scanners, laser thermometers, etc...

All the technology in the world cannot do our job for us, but combining this technology with years of hands-on building and remodeling experience have created a service that our competition can't touch.
