Welcome to HouseKnowHow.com

HouseKnowHow.com was designed and developed by me, Martin Newmark. I have been a home inspector, primarily for real estate transactions for the past 15 years. I have inspected thousands of homes in the Denver/Boulder metro area. On this site I document the knowledge I have amassed during my home inspection career, and my time working on, and trying to understand, homes and their systems. I hope you find on this site what you are looking for. If not, use the contact page to ask me a question or to make a suggestion.
