The above logo is what we created for the team over at South Shore Home Inspections in Venice, FL
Q: So tell me about your business a little bit.
A: Well, we are a new startup down in Venice and we were recommended to you from some friends of ours. We are a home inspection company with a range of different inspection services depending on what type of inspection you need done.
Q: How long have you been a home inspector?
A: Funny question. I just became one. I recently have taken and received all of my certification but technically speaking I am a newbie in this industry. Professionally speaking though, I have been in the skill trades industries for over 35 years and have seen it all. I know the hack jobs when I see it and what to look for. Surprisingly, even though being in and around the different trades for all of those years and seeing everything, I still learned a heck of a lot more than I thought I was going to.
Q: What made you get in to being an inspector?
A: To be honest it is my health. I had a surgery a few years back and it has taken a toll on my body more than expected. That, coupled with the fact that I am not getting any younger, I decided to take what I love and still be able to put it to good use. I am a people person at heart so still being able to carry on day to day and interact with others while not adding the extra wear and tear on myself was a perfect decision.
Q: You originally told me that you were not from Florida, care to elaborate on that?
A: Sure. We relocated looking more towards the future and retirement. We are from Ohio and were always going to eventually make the move south, we just did not know where. We looked at the Carolina’s and Georgia, but ended up settling on Florida – but hey, they are all warmer than Ohio so you wont catch us complaining.
Q: What do you like most about your logo design?
A: We liked the colors. It was funny because the colors that we ended up choosing, we did not realize till after they were the ones we liked that they are similar to Florida Gators team colors. We swear that was not a planned thing. Funny and true story.
Q: For anyone in the southwest Florida area needing an inspection, where can they get a hold of you?
