Adobe homes are unique, with special needs and knowledge to maintain them at their peak efficiency. If you are in the process of purchasing an adobe home, are unsure of what you are buying and need professional advice, I can help.
I have done many inspections and analysis’ of adobe homes. For a reasonable fee, you can have my thirty years of working on and preserving adobe homes at your disposal. Even if you do not live in Tucson, I can still assist you. With the advent of smart phones and “FaceTime,” you can walk around your potential home in real time and show me the property, a remarkable aspect of modern technology.
In March of 2017, I received an email from Jay G. in Texas. Jay is interested in purchasing an old, circa 1900 or earlier mud adobe building in Marfa, TX. He hired me to do a phone consultation with him while he walked around the property in Marfa. Using his Android smart phone, my iPhone, and utilizing a real-time Facebook live-link feed via Messenger, I was able to inspect the property while Jay did the videoing…all done within the comfort of my own home.
Technology is remarkable, and only getting better. Jay was informed by someone that this particular building was a tear-down; wisely, he sought out an alternate opinion and he searched on the Internet and found my website. Though the building was indeed in rough shape and some of it would have to be torn-down, much of it was salvageable. My expert opinion helped Jay to make the decision he needed to.
Even if you don’t have a smart phone, as long as you have a decent digital camera and know how to download pictures to my email address (email@example.com), I can still help you.
People frequently call me from across the country because they cannot find a local expert to help them with their adobe home needs. With the internet, I can become your “virtual” inspector and help you with your adobe home purchase.
Most problems can be solved by my minimum consultation fee of $125.00. For this, I will look over the pictures you send me, ask a series of questions to find out as much information on the problem from your perspective as possible, and formulate a repair/restoration plan. Then, I will walk you through the actual steps of the repair/restoration process, as well as provide a needed material list for you to purchase. Call Roy Spears at (520) 331-4004 for more details. Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For more complicated issues, the fee can be higher. After viewing the photos a client initially sends me, I can then determine the approximate cost of the analysis. I will inform you upfront if I anticipate the cost will exceed the typical $125.00 fee and you can decide whether or not you wish to proceed.
