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 promise to deliver an exceptional thorough inspection with only your best interest in mind and educate you about the home.  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 most 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 17 years I have completed more than 8000 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 background and professional journey has provided me with the knowledge, experience and ability to provide a superior service to my clients. 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 four years in row (2011 - 2014) is what I am most proud of.  The endorsement of my past clients is priority to me!
