Inspection Services

Apex has more than 20 years of experience in offering inspections. We hold contractors to the standards that provide you the peace of mind that comes with a job well done by completing on-site, in-person inspections. By being on-site, we can work with the contractor to fix issues and find solutions to concerns at the time of the inspection, saving time and money.
