Get to know Joseph Lang
Buying a home is a stressful experience and usually your largest investment. We will help you in this process by providing an objective, thorough and professional home inspection report. Though we are based out of Rancho Cucamonga, we have easy access to the 210, 15, 10 and 60 freeways, which can get us to many Southern California locations easily. We perform home inspections full-time and carry a $1 million Error and Omissions insurance policy and General Commercial Liability insurance. We also invest in our business to provide you with the best home inspection. We carry over $4,000 of equipment including a laptop computer, color laser printer, digital camera, moisture meter, laser thermometer, ladders and more. Our average time on-site is 3-hours, compared to 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours by many of our competitors. Many times the money saved in items to be requested for repair is greater than the home inspection fee, thus paying for itself. We'd love to earn your business!
Your local Pillar To Post franchise owner, Joseph Lang, earned two Pillar To Post Pinnacle Awards in 2008. Joseph's home inspection franchise had the largest % increase in gross sales and the largest % increase in inspections performed throughout the entire Pillar To Post home inspection franchise in the U.S. and Canada.
When looking for a home inspector, please do your research. There is no licensing for home inspectors in California, so anyone can call themselves a home inspector. Some questions to ask when selecting a home inspector (with my answers in italics below):

How long will it take to receive the report?
The report will be printed and reviewed on-site, no waiting. It includes color pictures, a summary, a detailed report and comes in a hard binder. The report can also be emailed that same night at no additional cost.
How long do you usually spend on-site?

Should I attend the inspection?
Though it's not required, we highly recommend you attend the inspection. It's always better seeing things in person, plus we can answer any questions you may have.

We have been performing home inspections since 2004 and have inspected over 1,500 homes: From homes built in 1889 to brand new construction, from small condos to 8,000 sq. ft., from $60,000 homes to $8.5 million.
