Whether you are buying or selling, it is very important to have your new or current home inspected by a Certified Maine Home Inspector like myself.
I am a Certified Master Inspectors (CMI)® and proud member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). I abide by InterNACHI's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. I am an independent Maine Home Inspector that works for you and will perform an unbiased inspection with the utmost quality and integrity.
My General Home Inspections are a Non-Invasive and are an evaluation of the Visible and Accessible area of the interior and exterior structure, systems and components. Such as the Roof, Exterior, Basement or Crawlspace, Foundation, Interior, HVAC, Plumbing, Attic, Insulation, Ventilation and Electrical. You are invited and encouraged to follow along as I perform the inspection.
The report is based on observations made on the date of the inspection only and not a prediction of future conditions. Your report will include my findings of any material defects and safety concerns I discover that day, in an easy-to-read format. I may also provide my recommendations for monitoring, repair or replacement.
And my job isn't finished until you understand everything in your report.
My home inspections typically average around two to three hours onsite depending on the size of the house. There are some inspectors here in Maine that will show up at the inspection with no other tools other than a flashlight and be in and out of the property in 45 minutes. Hand you a 2 or 3 page handwritten, click list report and then they hurry out to another one of their several inspections they booked that day. I am not one of those type of inspectors. I only schedule one inspection a day, so I can dedicate my day just to you. Once I get back to my office, I review and edit all of my photos and videos from the inspection (which are typically between 200-350 photos). I will gather the most important photos and videos to be included in the inspection report. My easy to read reports are on average around 45 pages. Please see a sample inspection report for yourself here.
Thank you, I look forward to working with you and your family.

My Promise to You
Understandably, the task of finding the right Maine home inspector can be challenging. Unlike most professionals, you may not get to meet me until after you hire me. Different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. A thorough inspection relies heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. My business is providing peace of mind and if you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new dream home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
This I promise you.
Tim J.Bright CMI®
I want for you to be 100% satisfied with my services. I am an honest Maine small business owner and feel that my clients deserve what they pay for. I truly hope that you would never have any doubts, but if for any reason you are not satisfied, I will do my best to make it right. If you are present for the inspection and are still not satisfied with the “quality” of my services, please inform me before the completion of my inspection. From there, I will discontinue with the inspection, you will not pay the home inspection fee and no report will be given.
