Thank you for visiting the Home Tactics Inspection Services website. We are licensed professionals that specialize in providing high quality home inspections throughout most of Maryland. Our top priority is making sure that home buyers are informed of any and all major issues with the home they are planning on purchasing before settlement. With the combination of advanced tactical instruments and well-trained eyes, we significantly exceed the national standard for home inspections. You can rest assured that you will be in good hands with Home Tactics Inspection Services.

We are also certified to test for Radon, which is an odorless radioactive gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, right behind tobacco products. Some of the counties in Maryland are classified as a “Zone 1” Radon risk, and require Radon testing with every home sale, so check with us or your realtor if you are not sure if you need one.

Home Tactics Inspection Services LLC has 5-Star Google and Yelp Ratings, and most of the realtors that have seen how thorough we are, recommend us to every one of their clients that need a home inspection or Radon test from then on. Our inspection reports are easy to read, full of helpful pictures, and very detailed.

Buying a home is one of the largest purchases that most people make in their life. So let Home Tactics Inspection Services inform you of any safety issues or major repairs needed, as well as give you peace of mind for the future of your home. Thank you.

About The Owner

The owner and main inspector of Home Tactics Inspection Services LLC is Chaz Shipley, a seasoned Certified Professional Home Inspector as well as a Certified Radon Tester. He has always had a keen eye for spotting safety hazards, and has potentially saved countless lives and injuries as a safety inspector for a major corporation in a former career. He is no stranger to home improvement either. He grew up watching and helping as houses were being built from the ground up, which gives him a distinct advantage as a home inspector. He is familiar with every major system of the home, so he can usually tell if a system is about to fail. And as with all home inspectors, he can only report on what he can see at the time of the inspection, and cannot guarantee that systems will not fail in the future. He uses an arsenal of high-tech devices such as a thermal imaging camera, advanced moisture meter, spectoscope, etc., to search for issues that the naked eye would normally miss.  He is very thorough in his inspections, but also efficient, utilizing his time effectively. He encourages his clients to follow along during the inspection process, and enjoys educating people about the home that they are considering buying. His inspection reports are very detailed and professional, so even if you cannot be present during the inspection, you will still be able to know about any deficiencies that he finds. He has had nothing but 5-Star customer reviews on Google, and just about every realtor that has experienced his work recommends him to all of their clients that need a home inspection from then on. He is truly a master of his craft, and genuinely cares about every one of his customers. When he inspects your future home, you can rest assured that the job was done right. So call today and schedule your home inspection. Thank you.
