Certified by the International Home Inspector Board.
I have accumulate over 25 years of experience in home construction internationaly, having built and renovated homes in Canada, USA and for the last 8 years in Panama. This means totally rebuilting many older homes for resale the problems we encountered just seem to repeat themselves on many occasions as poor workmanship and lack of following standard construction rules and practices.
Having identified those, it makes it easy for us to spot issues in a thorough inspection.
Having also experience in building in ground pools, some possible hard to notice defects can adversely affect your enjoyment.
Correct landscape drainage is the one of the biggest contributing factor in structural failure, I have the knowledge to do a visual in that regards and make recommendations.
Panama housing construction is very different because of the climate, lots of sun a tremendous amount of rain this requires different type of materials very little wood, lots of steel beams locally known as carriolas, steel roofs that have a tendency to corrode if not installed properly, concrete blocks, stucco finishes all of which if not done according to standard practices and are not identified at the time of purchase can be a costly expenses in a very short term.
Electrical, plumbing are all visually inspected.
We will recommend in this respect if a repair is needed a time span of the urgency for the repairs.
