About Burrell Building Inspections
Burrell Building Inspections
is owned and operated by Bruce Burrell. He has lived on the Palos Verdes Peninsula all his life. He grew up swinging a hammer and carrying lumber for his father who started building homes on the Peninsula in 1954. After attending UCLA he went to the Southern California Institute of Architecture and then came out to work in the family business designing and building houses. He did the foundations, framing and finish work on those homes. So when it comes to knowing the Peninsula, he has probably dug in the dirt by the house you are looking at. There is also a street in Rancho Palos Verdes named after the family. He has also worked with all the different trades necessary to finish one of these beauties so he knows the components of a house inside and out. The upper house pictured was designed and built by Bruce and the lower house was the last big project he constructed - over 14,000 square feet.
The inspection business was started over 20 years ago. Training was completed at the Inspection Training Association and has been embellished with continuing education ever since. But the best training is experience. Just when you think you have seen every situation in a house something new comes along. Now after thousands of inspections there is still room for continued learning. That is why Bruce is a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, the largest international inspection association. He has continued to take their classes and tests and has been awarded the title of Certified Professional Inspector.
It is gratifying when a Realtor is buying their own house that they call Bruce to do the inspection. Even more so when they hire him to do the inspections for their parents or their children. With all the inspectors available to the Real Estate industry it is a powerful testimonial when Burrell Building Inspections has been chosen by many of the Peninsulas best Realtors as the preeminent inspector for their families.
