Since this is probably the most important purchase in your life should you not know WHO is doing your inspection? Many large inspection firms boost of their many certificates and licenses that are more than likely held by the principle of the company but is HE or SHE doing your inspection or just a employee who is in training ? At Accredited Building Consultants Inc. only Fred Sylvester will be doing your inspection. Nothing takes the place of experience and continued education and Fred certainly has the experience with 45 years in the construction business and 24 years of doing inspections. Fred is also the only inspector in Southwest Florida that is a Building Science Envelope Institute (Click here BESI) Certified Level 2 Inspector. Nothing takes the place of experience, not licensing, degrees or fluffed up certificates. Yes, I said fluffed up certificates. Look very close at printed up logos and certificates, most are bogus at best and or better yet inspectors purchase them. Many "Certified Master Inspector" logos are bought with no proof of experience from inspection assocations. There are no tricks here, its plain and simple, time in the field and report writing are what makes an inspector, Fred qualifies and we prove it, see below.

Certificates and Licenses
We all know that licenses and certificates come fairly easily anymore. Seems anyone can go to a class or submit an application and get just about anything they want published. Remember when you could get a home inspectors license certificate off a television commercial with Sally Struthers. Well I have a few certificates to show you as well. So for what they are worth here they are. Just remember, its experience and dedication in a field or trade that really counts.
