My name is Jacob Diaz. I have been in the service field for 18 years working on all types of commercial equipment and building structures ranging from EMS systems, HVAC systems, refrigeration systems, plumbing, electrical, server rooms, underground water detention systems, general construction, flooring, hydraulic equipment, and interior remodels. My goal is to educate the buyer and instill confidence in your next home!

I called ARK after my first inspection because of mistrust by my first inspector. Brad found many problems with the house that was missed, some of them dangerous. ARK pointed these out and saved me hundreds of dollars in energy costs plus the dangerous wiring has been fixed. I'm glad I called.
