InspecDoc Inspection Services opened for business in 1994 in an effort to help serve the real estate community. As property inspection demand increased, InspecDoc did as well and quickly became a multi inspector firm. In 1997, Peter Hopkins was approached to assist with InspecDoc’s growth. Peter Hopkins was a practicing inspector at the time and agreed to accept overflow work from InspecDoc. With a strong existing client base and a thriving business model, Peter Hopkins decided to merge companies and subsequently purchased InspecDoc in 1998. The company was further developed and grew to 4 inspectors by 2003 with the real estate boom. 2004 showed a slight decline in business as with that, Peter Hopkins developed a sister company, SoCal Infrared and launched services in 2005. SoCal Infrared was initially developed to capture the growing demand of energy audits and as well to offer our inspection clients the opportunities for further answers when it comes to leak conditions which are often found during property inspections. SoCal Infrared further developed and has expanded to advanced forensics and electrical evaluations with large corporate clients and has become a successful business of its own.
Peter Hopkins has been inspecting homes and commercial buildings since 1996 having personally performed over 7000 property inspections. Peter is an ICC Code Certified Building Inspector and is a member of several inspection associations.

Brad Tucholski has been inspecting homes since 1994 and has worked with InspecDoc since 2000.
