Based in Bellingham, WA, Home Inspections Solutions, LLC was launched in 2018 and is independently owned and operated by Michael Coffeen.
Michael grew up in the building industry. His father, Thomas, owned a plumbing and leak detection business in Corpus Christi, Texas. Throughout his adolescence, Michael tagged along to job sites during the summer to help out where ever he could. That’s where he first learned about the inner workings of homes. He’s lived in Washington State since 2005, moving here shortly after college.
Home inspection became Michael’s profession because he chose work that makes a positive impact in people’s lives. Helping people during a potentially stressful time in their lives, giving them the peace of mind with a quality inspection, and potentially saving them thousands in costly repairs down the road are all reasons why Michael pursues this work.
Micheal earned his licenses to become a Residential Home Inspector and Structural Pest Inspector after completing coursework in summer 2018 at Bellingham Technical College.
Michael also holds a B.S. in Biology from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Though that may seem tangential to home inspection, the skills he developed there make him a smarter and more thorough inspector. He has developed a broad and ever-increasing knowledge base in the building sciences. By applying scientific technique and a systematic approach to the inspection process, Michael provides a timely, exceptional home inspection and pest report, enabling the client to make sound decisions and take clear action, if needed.
With a passion for continuing education, Michael stays on the cutting edge of his field to ensure each customer receives the highest quality results. His business philosophy follows the old saying by Hunter S. Thompson, “Anything worth doing is worth doing right.” Michael stays informed on the latest and greatest approaches while also honoring tested traditions in the field.
When not on the job, Michael enjoys the great outdoors of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. You might bump into him while he’s out walking his dog, Pele, hiking a local trail or riding his bike around town.
