Notable Recognitions

Within first year of entering the inspection business, Stanley was awarded the contract to perform the Exterior Insulated and Finish Systems (EIFS) inspections for Pulte Home Corporation, the largest homebuilder in the nation, in their Northern Virginia and Maryland communities.  Upon completion of the EIFS inspections, Stanley was then hired by Pulte to participate in the development of scope of work for repairs and training for the contractors as well as inspections and testing during the repair process. Stanley has continued consulting with Pulte on roofing problems and potential repairs.

Investigative Inspection Services was designated by Building Specs, Inc., of Stevensville, MD, a national home inspection and training company, as the company to handle their EIFS inspections. They have also hired us to develop and teach mold inspection and sampling, EIFS inspections, and other specialty or advanced sections of home inspector training courses.  Stanley has been teaching for Building Specs, Inc., since September of 1999.
