Important Announcement: Another New Addition to the Strong Foundations team:

We are pleased to announce that this summer we took yet another step to grow our team with the adoption of Simon John on July 30th. Though we are presently hampered from making full use of Simon by child labor laws, we are looking at the big picture here, and are confident that 18 years down the road Simon will be able to make full use of his intelligence and gift of keen observation in order to make a strong contribution to the company.

For the time being, Simon will take over the role of Communications Director, once held by Malcolm. Malcolm will move into the role of Inspector’s Assistant (license pending).

New Feature on strongfoundationsinspection.com:

See the link above (or click here) for our new and ongoing “What Not to Do” feature. If you’ve ever had an inspection with us, you may have heard warnings about things to avoid in maintaining or repairing a home. Usually we give these warnings because we have seen just how wrong things can go if not done properly. In this new feature we want to explain and inform so that you know that we’re speaking from experience!

New for the New Year: FREE THERMAL IMAGING SCANS!

  Happy New Year from Strong Foundations Home Inspection!   We are pleased to announce that we will now be offering FREE THERMAL IMAGING SCANS on all standard home inspections. We have always offered thermal imaging as needed, or upon request, but this year we want to emphasize this opportunity to use technology to aid us in serving you and your clients.  Thermal imaging has many benefits in the inspection process. It helps us to better identify the presence of moisture in some cases, it allows us to identify the location and causes of cold or hot air infiltration (gaps in insulation or unwanted air flow), it allows us to identify, in some cases, the locations of studs, joists and beams within a wall or ceiling (which can help identify changes made to the home structure), it allows us to identify some plumbing or heating issues.  Though not without its limitations, we are excited to make greater use of thermal imaging technology in the future in order to provide you and your client with just one more tool to make wise decisions.  Again, while other inspectors often only include thermal imaging as an option for an additional fee, we are excited to offer this service to your clients for FREE!

We've Moved!

Strong Foundations Home Inspection has recently relocated to the Tacoma area! What does that mean for you? Not much, to be honest. We still offer the same great inspections for the same territory in the Puget Sound (though we may be able to get to our Southend and Pierce County appointments a bit faster).

Moving into a new home also means the opportunity to do an inspection for ourselves for a change. We've inspected our "fixer", and the results are available at the "Sample Report" tab at the top of this page, or by clicking here. 

We look forward to continuing to serve you from our new location!

 


Strong Foundations Home Inspection Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

Strong Foundations Home Inspection has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the Home Inspection companies in the Puget Sound region were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

"At Strong Foundations we are honored to receive this award, which exemplifies the values and ethics that we strive toward as a company: Superior devotion to customer service, timeliness, attention to detail, and overall quality of our work and product. We look forward to continuing our devotion to our customers and our values in 2017 and beyond." - Isaac McPhee, Owner, Strong Foundations Home Inspection

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”  

### 

Angie's List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie's List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

Whether you're buying or selling a home, having a professional home inspection from a leading home inspection company will give you peace of mind and assist you in a fair and smooth transaction.

Strong Foundations Home Inspection is the premier home inspection company in Western Washington. Our inspectors have been entrusted by home buyers to help them make informed buying decisions.

All questions are welcome, and we specialize in helping both experienced and first-time home buyers better understand their new home.

We take great pride in every inspection we perform. When the inspection is over, your inspector will prepare a detailed inspection report regarding the property and deliver the report quickly (always within a few hours, but often we can deliver ON SITE). This means no need to wait days or even overnight for your home inspection report.  Additionally, every client is welcome and encouraged to contact us with any questions and concerns you may have, even long after the inspection is completed!
