Credentials and Experience

Walter Clemens (Lead New Home Warranty Inspector)

Although the State of Colorado, County of El Paso & Douglas, Cities of Castle Rock, Parker, Aurora, Colorado Springs as well as surrounding cities do not offer or require licensing of home inspectors, I have held a General Contractor's license in the State of Colorado. Several National Associations set minimum requirement standards for Home Inspectors. Encompass Home Inspection meets and exceeds all of these required standards in our inspection process including additional materials inspection that can secure long term manufacturers warranties. Extensive expertise and ongoing inspector training preserves the integrity of our inspection process. We notate all the current IBC (International Building Codes) deficiencies which are the minimum standards demanded by the International community, United States and the State of Colorado, as well as all items deemed prudent builder standards to maintain home integrity. My previous work background and experience includes the following: Held position of Warranty Supervisor for a Top Five Colorado Springs Home Builder. Involvement in the building construction of over 200+ new homes. Held State of Colorado General Contractor's licensing and completed construction of over 100+ interior home finish outs. Participation in every aspect of the new home construction process. Supervising both front and back ends of the process, from shooting lots to final walk through with homeowners. Meeting with city and county inspectors maintaining and resolving building code issues in Colorado Springs building inspections. Code Certification in El Paso and Douglas Counties. As a New Home Warranty Inspector, I have identified 1,000's of warranty corrections for homeowners in Colorado and specifically in Arapahoe, Douglas, El Paso and Jefferson Counties. Performance of over 1000+ home inspections on both new and previously existing homes. Maintained county regulations as Code Enforcement Officer for Riley County, Kansas. While residing in California, performed inspections on properties for Hud, Fema and additionally on insurance damage claims for several major insurers.
