Welcome to HouseGeek: Jeff Strang, Oregon Certified Housing Inspector #1409, based in NE Portland. Highly experienced, knowledgeable and personable. Limited hours, since I work full-time at Multnomah County in evironmental health (focus on indoor air quality and safety). If you need a full-time private home inspector, check out my mates at the Oregon Association of Home Inspectors, www.oahi.org, or NorthWest Oregon Certified Home Inspectors, www.nwhomeinspections.com.
If you’re still interested, here’s a brief rundown of my licenses and certifications:
- Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) license #189905 (important info about ANY real-property contractor is at www.oregon.gov/CCB)
- Oregon Building Inspector (Commercial and Residential) and Residential Plumbing Inspector certifications
- Oregon certified Lead Paint Inspector and Lead Risk Assessor
- Oregon Commercial Pesticide Applicator–required to legally file wood-destroying organism forms for mortgage loans
Fee: $200 per dwelling unit, plus $0.05 per square foot of floor space, plus $50 if the dwelling to be inspected includes a crawl space, plus $2/mile for 1-way distance from my office (1137 NE Beech St., Portland, OR).
