Valley Home Inspectors LLC is family owned and operated by Anthony Kovatto and his wife Colleen. VHI is located in Macungie, PA. Anthony has lived in the Lehigh Valley his entire life. Anthony has been doing carpentry, home renovations, home maintenance and then home inspections for the last 17 years. He started working for his father when he was 18 years old doing renovations. When he was 26 years old he took over his fathers renovation company. A few years later he transitioned to home inspecting.
Anthony has experience with all aspects of home building and maintenance as a general contractor and property maintenance technician. Therefore, he has a thorough knowledge of the many components and systems that make up a home. Having a renovations/carpentry and home maintenance background helps him to better his skills as a home inspector because he understands the methods used to build and repair homes. It is very important to understand why a home builder or improvement contractor builds a home a particular way and what it takes to perform certain repairs.
Anthony also Graduated from AHIT (American Home Inspectors Training), is a InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector, PADEP licensed radon tester, and PSMA certified septic inspector. He continues his education every year as it is required to be an InterNACHI CPI and is very close to becoming a Certified Master Inspector.
Anthony understands how important it is to have quality work done on your home. He has seen firsthand how poor craftsmanship can personally affect a home owner. This is a significant reason why he decided to transition into home inspecting.
