If you want top-notch advice on do-it-yourself home improvement and maintenance, you’d likely look for two kinds of experts: people who have built homes and people who inspect them. We found them both in the same guy. During his 12-plus years as a professional home inspector, Tim Hockenberry has inspected thousands of houses. Before that, this former Marine spent years in new home construction and renovation. Tim lives with his wife and three children outside Washington, D.C., where he is most likely at this very moment dismantling a persnickety dishwasher or uncooperative vacuum cleaner — because that’s just the kind of guy he is. Hone in on Tim’s home inspecting experience as the co-host of DIY Network’s Finders Fixers.
