Aloha! I’m Tom Burgess, owner of Pacific Inspection Group. I'm a Hawaii home inspector. I have been inspecting homes in Hawaii County for years. I have been a house and condo inspector in Hawaii since 2005. My love for inspecting goes back more than twenty years when I started as a general contractor in Chicago, and stepped up to be a commercial building inspector for the City of Chicago.

If you are seeking a quality home inspector you have come to the right place. I've done home inspections all over the Big Island: Kona, Hilo, Waimea, Volcano, Oceanview, Waikoloa, Kamuela, and all places between. I have inspected over 5000 houses, condos and commercial buildings. I am also certified to perform mold inspections, asbestos, and lead testing. We have you covered!

For me, doing a thorough home inspection is very important. I want you to know exactly what you are buying. House prices are rising and as my dad once said “they aren’t making any more land”……Well, dad forgot to mention that in fact Hawaii Island is making more land, though it will be a while before anyone can use it.

Buying a home is probably the most expensive thing a person will buy and you can’t take it for a test drive like a car. That’s where I come in. I’ll inspect every aspect of every system in that home. I have found small issues, for instance, a broken outlet costing around $5-$10 dollars to fix, and large foundation issues that cost more than $35,000.00 to fix--not including the engineering fees! Can you imagine getting stuck with a $35,000.00 dollar structural issue after you spent $178,000.00 on a house?

I LOVE inspecting condos, houses and commercial properties on the Big Island of Hawaii! Big houses and condos, small houses and condos, new houses and old houses.  I enjoy them all.  Each one has a unique story to tell.  A story that you, the home buyer or home seller, need to know in order to make informed and well-balanced decisions in preparation for the purchase or sale of a home.

Hours of operation:
Please leave a message if I don't answer, as I might be under a house performing an inspection. I WILL get back to you.

Whether traversing a roof on a windy rainy Hilo day, checking a sweltering attic in Kona, or navigating a dark and damp crawlspace in Volcano or Waimea, my home inspections are always thorough and balanced to ensure you have complete information about the condition of the house.  I show you the good aspects of the house, along with the deficiencies.  You want a Dream Home, not a nightmare!

Here are some of the many items I'll be looking at during your home inspection:

Foundation and support structure
Roof systems
Basement seepage
Safety controls
Water heater
Electrical capacity & components
Structural integrity
Steps and stairs
Central Air Conditioning system
Walks and driveways
Built-in appliances
