About Me:
My name is Keith Collins - thank you for visiting my website. If you are reading this then
is it safe to assume that you are planning to make one of the largest financial investments
of your life. Few inspectors in the area have my extensive trade experience. I believe that
28 years in the trade, coupled with my home inspector training, provide me with unique
insight into the home inspection business.
