Day 2 Instructor
Meet your instructor, Seth Hurlbert! All Seth’s life he has been taking things apart, figuring out what was wrong, repairing it, and putting it back together. He used to work on everything from small equipment like lubrication injectors and pumps, to air compressors that were larger than a truck. He has done repairs both in his own home and for other people since he was a teenager. So when he needed a change in career, home inspecting seemed like a great fit.
He likes doing inspections because he is always meeting new people and learning new things. Even after 15 years in the business he’s seeing new and interesting things all the time! The best part of being an inspector is helping his clients really understand the home they are investing in. Sometimes it’s pristine, and sometimes it’s not, but at least they know what they are getting into. He enjoys talking with his clients and explaining not only what is found at the inspection, but also how their new home works. He feels that he is really helping his clients and that his work is important and appreciated.
