The office is temporarily closed and we're not accepting appointments due to a family medical situation.


Buy With Confidence.

There's simply no substitute for experience. You can save literally thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs by hiring a highly experienced home inspector instead of one who just entered the profession.

My earliest childhood memories are of helping Dad pound nails on an addition to the family house and I've been passionately involved with buildings ever since.

Exceeding expectations since 2000.

Why Hire Me


Technical Expertise Second to None.

Knowledge will put you at ease and help you avoid costly unforeseen problems. The more knowledge, the better.

I live, breath, eat and sleep home inspections. I find problems that other inspectors aren't even aware of.

Your biggest investment deserves the best inspection.

Our Services


Be Informed. Reduce Your Risk.

You'll get my full attention, because I schedule just one inspection per day. I'll patiently explain my findings and answer your questions.

But wait, that's only half the job! A jargon-free written report will make the home buying process less stressful. You won't find a more detailed and easy-to-read home inspection report anywhere.

Direct and simple communication will ease your purchase decision and make for a smoother transaction.

Owner and Home Inspector - Garet Denise, PE

You've already found the right home.
Now you've found the right home inspector.

I own Cornerstone Inspection and I do all the inspections. I'm dedicated to providing the most thorough home inspection services available in the Denver, Colorado area. I have no ties with any other business and do not perform any repair work. You get a completely honest and objective opinion about the condition of the house.


Experience isn't expensive, it's priceless. I've been involved with construction my entire life. After earning a master's degree in civil engineering in 1987, I entered a career of foundation engineering, building evaluations and construction materials testing. I've run Cornerstone Inspection full-time since 2000.


Years of home inspection experience combined with my engineering background leave me uniquely positioned to specialize in both new construction and historic homes. Regardless of whether your house is under construction now or was built in the Victorian era, you'll learn what you need to know about it.

Personal Attention

A home inspection should be an educational process. You're encouraged to attend so you have the best understanding of the house. Your questions are welcome at any time during or after the inspection. You should feel comfortable with your investment.
