USBI has had a breakout year thanks to many of you referring many buyers, realtors, real estate lawyers to us, and spreading the good word.  Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.  It is important to stay on top of all the latest information that affects us all.  Better equipment was purchased to stay in line with what is necessary to find out what goes on inside a home, equestrian farm, residence with an airplane hangar, a residence on the ocean, or commercial building you are purchasing.  Here at US BUILDING INSPECTORS, we do it all.


USBI has been working on our creativity in sharing the best photos, information, and thorough detail of each home or building we inspect.  You have responded positively to our new highly skilled staff and software technology which has been updated to the top of our industry standards.  We aim to please and apparently we've done well.  Check out our ratings from customers


Our best year yet!  USBI has made new improvements in staff, tools, computer software, equipment, trucks, and multi-inspector professionals.  We've added everyone from general contractors, structural engineers, Chinese "defective" drywall inspectors, mold inspectors, and termite/pest inspectors.  Our ever-increasing techie crew has enabled us to share better photos and description of what we are looking at so you can view it from another state, country, or simply from your home or office, as though you were there with us.  We've received the greatest compliments from lawyers, realtors, buyers, and sellers, and yes, even from roofers, plumbers, and other contractors who have viewed our reports.
