Your Premier Boise ID Home Inspector
My name is Scott Frasure and I am your home inspector. I have lived in Idaho my entire life. Growing up in southeast Idaho, years of fire fighting with the Forest Service in Central Idaho, and working as a Engineer for the Union Pacific across the Snake River plain has broadened my appreciation and love for the Gem State. I enjoy the natural beauty this great State has to offer as well as the great people that live here. Native or not, Idaho has an amazing way of influencing all who abide here into being gracious and responsible Idahoans. This unique path of life experiences in this diverse landscape has exposed me to a variety of construction endeavours along the way. I have bought and sold many investment homes throughout my travels and relocations, where each one has taught me lessons about home ownership and maintenance. This experience combined with my innate desire to help people made for an easy transition to home inspections. Homes and good stewardship of them has a starting point of understanding them. The beginning of this understanding begins with a clear report from me, your Upright Home Inspector. I look forward to working with you and earning the privilege of being referred to as the one you call “my home inspector”.
