Whether you are buying your first home or your third luxury residence, the most important key is to have an experienced inspector on your side.

As an experienced certified home inspector, I will deliver an exceptionally thorough and educational inspection with only your best interest in mind. I serve Central Virginia including Glen Allen, Henrico, Hanover, Chesterfield, Goochland, Richmond and beyond. As a third generation contractor, I have been been around construction all of my life so climbing ladders, walking on roofs, and crawling under the houses are all second nature to me.  Everyone knows something...I know houses!  Over the last 16 years I have completed more than 7000 inspections, chaired two committees for the American Society of Home Inspectors which included the Technical and Standards committees. The committees develop, review and interpret resources for inspectors and consumers. My professional journey has provided me the knowledge, experience and ability to provide a superior service to my clients that is unsurpassed. I am a certified home inspector in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I am the founder of Cranor Inspection Services, LLC.  I am honored to have many thousands of satisfied customers but winning the Angieslist Super Service Awards for the last three years (2011 - 2013) is what I am most proud of.  The endorsement of my past clients is priorty to me!  I welcome the opportunity to serve you and if I do...please share your experience.
