About Us

Cities’ Inspection Service, Inc. was founded in 1987. Our vision was to form a building inspection company built upon the principles of character, reliability, service quality, and 100% customer satisfaction. Not to just talk about these qualities, but to consistently allow them to guide and become the foundation for every customer encounter.
