My Qualifications

john fordyce home inspector

I began my inspection career as a Civil Construction Inspector about 12 years ago and excelled at the process as I’ve always found a natural eye for finding faults and deficiencies in construction. My original background in Civil Engineering inspections led me to begin training to be a home inspector. I initially searched my local town and didn’t find any other home inspectors and immediately knew I’ve found a great business opportunity. I began training with other inspectors and taking Home Inspection classes in 2005 leading me to open Safe Buy Home Inspection LLC in fall of 2006. For over 10 years I’ve been continuing my education, learning the new trends in construction and the home inspection industry and fine tuning my home inspection skills.

I currently hold national certifications from the American Society of Home Inspectors ASHI and the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors NACHI. I am insured and compliant with all Pennsylvania laws and Home Inspector requirements. I’ve completed over 1800 inspections in Western PA over the last 10 years and I’m completely qualified to inspect and report on any home or buildings deficiencies.  I was rated “Best Home Inspector in Pennsylvania” in 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 in Western PA by Kudzu Inspector & Contractor review service.
