Francis has one critical advantage over most other home inspectors: his small physical stature permits him access to tight places where few others can go. He can move through narrow crawlspaces and undersized openings to spot hidden clues about a home's true condition. Francis can gather a wealth of photo evidence from these hideaways to document findings of importance to the client.
Prior to home inspections, Francis had over 36 years experience in home maintenance and has had an HVAC Wichita city license for 25 years. He has installed hundreds of HVAC units, and has experience in electrical. Francis' expertise extends to smaller home systems as well, logging over 1000 hot water heater and kitchen appliance installations and repairs. Additionally, Francis has experience in a wide range of household repairs, ranging from the simple to the complex.
Francis has owned, managed, and maintained residential and commercial rental properties for over 20 years. He has hands-on experience in maintaining these properties himself.
Prior to starting QHI, Francis worked as a maintenance supervisor for 260+ apartment units that involved repairing HVAC, plumbing, electrical systems, maintenance of swimming pools, as well as other apartment maintenance and repairs.
