Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. We're here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.

We'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

Happy Customers

I hired Cousin's for my inspection. This is my first time purchasing a home and this process is unbelievably hectic. He made this process simple and stress free. He did an amazing job! He was very thorough in the inspection and definitely paid attention to every detail. He answered every question I had and explained what I did not know. I received the report right away. I will definitely be recommending them.

Look no further for your home inspector.
Cousin's Home Inspection is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

Robert was so thorough! He took his time walking through the ENTIRE property. He checked EVERY outlet, EVERY switch, EVERY faucet, EVERY handle, EVERY door knob, EVERY window, every single square inch, down to the centimeters of the property. Both inside and outside. You name it, he checked it.

While he was doing his inspection and guiding us through the property, he was very informative and took the time to explain the process.

Robert was very professional and showed a great deal of knowledge. I highly recommend him. Buying a home can be very stressful but having an inspector like Robert Salas really helped to ease our minds. We felt confident in making out purchase.

Cousins home inspection recently did an inspection for me. The service was very professional from start to finish. From the beginning the inspector introduced himself and explained a little bit about the detailed work he was about to do. He thoroughly covered every square inch of the house, I was planning in purchasing without overlooking anything. At the end of his thorough and extensive inspection he went over several key findings and generated a report very quickly. The report was very detailed with findings and pictures of items that did and do not need attention. This made me feel comfortable in purchasing this home. I highly recommend using their service.
