What do Iron Horses have to do
with home inspecting?

In a nutshell — family history. My great-grandfather inspected and repaired steam locomotive boilers (iron horses) for the Denver & Rio Grande Western railroad. So when developing possible names I was drawn to one that meant something to me personally.

John Phillips, owner and lead inspector off Iron Horse Home Inspections

A Colorado native, I am a Certified Professional Inspector and member of InterNACHI, the largest home inspector organization in the country.
My background in building materials and real estate marketing led me back to school to become a home inspector. With continually growing knowledge and my own experiences buying homes in Colorado, I greatly enjoy helping others purchase their next home or mountain getaway.


The one thing about home inspections
is that there is no one thing.

Every home and location offers a unique set of inspection challenges, whether it’s a newer build out past E-470 or a rustic getaway nestled amongst the ponderosa at 7,500 feet. And changes in standard building practices, methods, and materials are forever ongoing. By belonging to InterNACHI, I have access to a large and ever growing library of courses, seminars, and forums, all of which allows me to continually add to our knowledge base that helps me to serve you better.
