Most home inspectors in Hawaii have little or no construction experience - they've never built a house, they do not know how to read building plans, and they can't identify structural problems. Many do not even know what are the proper sizes of framing components, or even if the nail size is correct. Many home inspectors have no idea how the electrical system works or if the wiring is safe.

As a Licensed General Contractor, Manny Manfredi is a professional with many years of construction experience building and remodeling houses. During a home inspection, he is able to review all major components of a house and alert you if significant problems are found.
