About Ken of Key Home Inspection

Ken was born and raised in the Portland metro area. He grew up in the construction world as his father was a contractor and remodeler.  After working several years with his father building homes, he worked in the property management field for seven years before starting his own construction company in 2006.

As a general contractor, Ken and his crew completed hundreds of construction and remodel jobs from decks and siding, bath and kitchen remodels to basement conversions adding ADU’s to people’s homes. Ken specializes in older homes and the unique issues they present.

Every issue he calls out during an inspection, he has built, remodeled, repaired or installed at one time or another.  His deep knowledge of home construction is what makes him the best choice as your home inspector.

Ken has been inspecting homes since 2005 and performed over 10,000 inspections. He is a member of ASHI, (The American Society of Home Inspectors) and his inspections exceed the Standards of Practice of ASHI, and the state of Oregon and Washington Standards of Practice.

An Inspection is integral to the home purchasing process.
