Are you a home buyer and wish you could get a home inspector's advice before you put an offer on a house or a home owner who wants advice from someone who isn't trying to sell you something?  Armor Inspections blogs about home related topics weekly.  We try to take care of our clients first and blog second; so some weeks there may be three posts and other weeks, there may be none.  If you want to be notified when there is a new post, please connect with us on either our Facebook or Google+ pages.
