Living and working as a h0me inspector in Portland, OR I spent a lot of time traveling around the city inspecting houses.  Portland has very distinct neighboorhoods and home styles within the different areas.  Because of this it is important to hire a Portland home inspector and not someone that occasionaly comes into the city.

Here are some of the classifications of Portland homes: Tudor, Old PDX-Foursquare, Cape Cod, Crafstman, Bungalow, Colonial, Mid Century Modern, and Victorian.  Since the house style varies it means more is required when doing a Portland home inspection.  Therefore, hiring someone familiar with Portland is extremely important.

One of the main reason you may be moving to Portland is wide range of activities available.  Being a Portland home inspector I've talked with thousands of people who have varied intrests.  I've put together just a small list of some Portland attraction and activities that may be of interest to you.
