HouseGeek Home Inspection Service

Home Page

Welcome to HouseGeek, otherwise known as Jeff Strang. I have over 17 years' experience in residential construction and inspection. I was in business from 1993-2004 as an Oregon construction contractor (#96029), specializing in residential remodeling and repair. Then I worked for the city of Portland, Oregon, as a Housing Inspector, enforcing the city’s property maintenance code. I was laid off in September, 2009, so I decided to enter the private home inspection field. I became an Oregon Certified Home Inspector (#1409) the following month. As of July 2010, I've been an Environmental Health Specialist at Multnomah County, working to remediate indoor air quality issues for low-income families with children with health problems. I also enforce the County's rental housing maintenance regulations in unincorporated (rural) areas.

I know houses, inside and out. I’m a State of Oregon Residential and Commercial Building Inspector (#5264451 and OIC69), a State of Oregon Residential Plumbing Inspector (#1812CAP), a Healthy Homes Specialist and a certified Oregon Wood-destroying Organisms Structural Inspector (#AG-L1012400CPA). I conduct my business ethically, professionally and personably. I am committed to giving you a thorough, accurate evaluation, and glad to spend time with you going over my report to answer any questions you have that can help you make the right decisions. Once my inspection is complete, I will print a complete report that includes photos and explanations. I am completely independent of real estate agents, brokers and appraisers, as all Oregon Certified Home Inspectors must be.

Price for a regular home inspection: $200 per dwelling unit, plus $0.05/square foot of floor space, plus $50 if the dwelling to be inspected includes a crawl space, plus $2/mile for 1-way distance from my home office. Call me at 503-752-9494 or e-mail at to schedule a home inspection (inspections for other purposes also done, such as wood-destroying organisms only and reinspection after work to correct deficiencies has been done). NOTE: I'm normally available only on weekends and evenings, but occasionally can schedule an inspection on a weekday.
