Home Inspector – Washington and Oregon

A Portland native, Ben is a licensed home inspector in Oregon (#2120), a licensed home inspector in Washington (#2266), and a licensed structural pest inspector (WSDA #96956).

Ben has worked in a variety of positions within and related to the construction industry.

He worked as an estimator for a contractor specializing in cedar and tile roof repair, diagnosing design and condition deficiencies and producing restoration plans.

He has designed, permitted, and built several new construction projects including homes and detached structures.

Ben also has an Associate’s Degree in accounting, and helped to manage a $240,000 annual capital maintenance budget for a large local waterfront business for 8 years.

He has worked as a licensed residential property appraiser in Washington State, valuing over 800 properties in all stages of construction, from excavation thru completion.

After meeting Charles in the process of obtaining his Oregon home inspector license, Ben noticed Charles’ enthusiasm, intelligence, and integrity.  A short time later, when Nonprofit Home Inspections had an opening for an inspector, he decided to try and join the unusually talented team of inspectors, instead of continuing to run a solo inspection business.  The adage of iron sharpening iron is true in regard to inspectors who can learn and benefit from one another’s experience.

A firm believer that many of life’s great memories are made in the home environment with family, and that it’s important to make an informed decision with such a large allocation of resources, Ben enjoys helping buyers understand important factors they may not have noticed, thought of, or had any way of knowing.
