About The Home Inspector
Licensed Home Inspector
Mark Smitherman is the owner and inspector of Today’s Home Inspections, LLC. For as long as he can remember, Mark has had a natural passion for every phase of home design, from first conception to final construction.
And while it’s easy to get caught up in the way that a home looks, Mark quickly learned how important it is to focus on how well a home functions—and how it can be improved upon if there is any aspect of the design that is compromising the home’s good condition. That’s why you can count on Mark to provide the help you need as you aim to invest in a well-built home that won’t demand repairs and improvements you’re not prepared to handle.
When he’s not inspecting homes, Mark likes to relax by gardening, building and crafting in his workshop, and spending quality time playing with his grandchildren. Some of Mark’s summertime hobbies include boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, hiking, and playing golf.
The Wisdom of Experience
As a licensed master electrician who has specialized in the electrical trade for over 35 years, Mark understands better than most how a home’s structure and mechanical systems cooperate to sustain a safe and livable home environment. Mark also has experience building, buying, and selling homes—all of which became key ingredients factoring into his decision to move to a career in home inspection.
There are countless variables that can influence the quality of home construction, and it takes years to accumulate enough familiarity with construction practices to accurately diagnose a property’s strengths and weaknesses. You can be confident that Mark will put his extensive knowledge to good use, helping you learn exactly what needs to be done in order to fully protect your interests as a home-buyer.
