Licensed Home Inspector
NJ License #24GI00197400
TJ Hargraves has years of experience working with a general contractor, and has worked as a Firefighter for ten years and counting. While working on residential projects with the general contractor, he gained a lot of experience in residential home renovations. He was able to apply some of that knowledge as a firefighter.
TJ has a unique perspective, as he has studied building construction in great depth. Not only does he know how buildings are constructed but also how they can come apart. In addition, he has taught courses on building construction, as he is a Certified Fire Service Instructor. Having studied and taught the topic of building construction, Hargraves’ understanding of the components of a home and how they work remains sharp and up-to-date.
Inspired by his supervisor at the fire department, he decided to start his own home inspection business. He worked for his supervisor’s successful home inspection company as an apprentice. During that time, he received quality instruction and advice from his supervisor and also performed extensive research of his own. Hargraves’ comprehensive knowledge of building construction has helped him tremendously in managing his own successful home inspection business.
