B&A is a family owned and operated business which has been serving Arizona for the last 18 years. Tom Buckhardt started the business after leaving the Property and Casualty Insurance business after 25 years of service. His son, Ethan, joined in the business two years ago and is licensed as a termite inspector as well. During that time Tom had been involved in many types of claims all over the United States.  He saw firsthand what happens when contractors either don’t know or don’t care how they complete their work.  He has been involved in claims of all types from poor deck designs to major catastrophic claims like those that arose from hurricane Katrina.  He has seen highly touted new products like polybutylene piping and synthetic stucco turn out to be disastrous, causing hundreds of millions in damages and now banned from use. Given his experience, Tom brings much more to the table then just proper construction techniques. 

Tom also has an extensive construction background that includes renovating, designing and building several homes. Having conducted literally thousands of home inspections, he prides himself on his extensive knowledge and his dedication to excellent customer service, which has resulted in thousands of satisfied customers. Each client is provided with a detailed inspection report that covers every aspect of the inspection and an analysis and recommendations. Reports are sent electronically to save paper and to keep expenses to a minimum. Realtors refer clients to Tom again and again as they trust the quality of his work and are willing to stake their own reputations on it. Appointment hours are flexible and include weekends. Tom is a member in good standing of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors and is an Approved Inspector of the Federal Housing Authority.
