Cornerstone is growing and we now offer the following services:

Thermal Imaging-Infrared inspection or Thermography, is used throughout industry as a key diagnostic tool for finding problems. Infrared inspections are a non destructive, non contact and a cost effective way to detect and document defects.

Mold Testing- Mold damages what it grows on...and the longer it grows, the more damage it can cause.

Molds are an essential part of the natural environment. Outdoors, they break down dead organic matter. But indoors, molds are potentially toxic, and their growth should be prevented. Let me inspect your home for mold before expensive problems develop.

Home Toxicology Testing-Don't forget to also get your home tested for previous drug labs, processing and usage! Toxic chemicals from illicit street drugs can make your family sick and your wallet cringe with cleanup costs starting at about $10,000.00. In the United States only 1 in 10 drug labs are ever discovered leaving future buyers at risk.

Ensure the home you buy is a good investment

Buying a home can be a stressful process. Chances are, most of your inspection will be related to maintenance recommendations and minor imperfections. These are good to know about.


The issues that matter, really fall into four categories; major defects, conditions that lead to major defects, issues that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home if not corrected and safety hazards. Anything in these categories should be addressed as soon as possible.

Understand maintenance costs before purchase

It is important to realize that a seller is under no obligation to repair anything mentioned in your inspection report. No house is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Remember that home ownership is both a joyful experience and an important responsibility. Call me to help you devise an annual maintenance plan that will keep your family safe and help protect your investment.


Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment--after you've hired me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you- Matthew Preston
