Professionally Trained CREIA Certified Home Inspector
My name is Paul Harriott and I’m the President & Owner of The Home Inspection Company. I am an Australian native who moved to San Diego, California in 2006. I have been a CREIA (California Real Estate Inspection Association) certified Home Inspector since 2009. In California, Home Inspectors are not required to be licensed, but being a member of CREIA gives us credibility. I firmly believe that you should hire a CREIA certified Home Inspector.
To qualify as a CREIA certified Home Inspector we must pass an extensive exam demonstrating proficiency in all codes and regulations regarding home inspections and must annually complete a minimum of 30 hours of continuing education to maintain our membership. I pride myself on doing more than the minimum 30 hours. The home construction, and therefore home inspection industry, is an ever changing industry and it is essential for home inspectors to keep up with these changes. CREIA sponsors educational events to make sure that its inspectors are on top of these changes and can pass that information on to you during the home buying and selling process.
My passion for Home Inspecting came after I purchased my first home and realized how important the Home Inspection was to the home buying process. As a home owner myself, I know that buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions of your life… And, as with any investment, you must go in with all the information possible to make the best decision. And that is The Home Inspection Company’s promise to you. Our home inspections will provide you with that information.
Thank you for letting me be involved in this wonderful experience and delivering you the peace of mind that you deserve!
