Our Process

At Boggs Inspection Services we believe that professional home inspection is an interactive business. We enjoy serving the Thurston County region real estate community.

A professional Olympia home inspector gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.
Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than two and a half hours, Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.

We take our business seriously. Every home inspection in Centralia, Olympia, DuPont, Lacey and Tumwater is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with pictures of any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them.
