Why we started 5 Tides

Our personal experience with home purchases and home inspections led us to start 5 Tides. We know what it is like to have an inspector seemingly not care. We also know what it is like to have an inspector miss major items and yet find the minor cosmetic items important. We have seen it as both a buyers and  sellers. We don’t want anyone else to have those same experiences. By choosing 5 Tides as your home inspector, you will have a trained eye giving you a thorough inspection with a report you can understand and an inspector who wants to answer your questions. We are your advocate, what is in your best interest in the purchasing experience is in OUR best interest. We happily work for you! 

Home Buyers

Found your dream home? Let us help you ensure everything is in proper working order. We take our time and go through the entire house step by step looking at the things you don't so you can be sure that your home is everything you are dreaming of. For peace of mind we offer 3 guarantees. 

  1. First is my personal guarantee, if during your inspection you feel I am not performing to the standard you want to see and I cannot fix your concerns, I will refund your money and recommend another certified inspector for you. 
  2. Second I am proud to be part of the InterNachi Buyback Guarantee. Giving you peace of mind that your inspection is done right or they will buy your house back.
  3. Lastly is the Honor Guarantee. InterNachi offers a $10,000 damage and theft guarantee. Again peace of mind that not only is your inspector qualified but that the home is protected from theft during the inspection process.
