John Marshall, Inspector

Starting his construction career as a general laborer (starting the summer he turned 13), he eventually became a journeyman carpenter in his early 20's and has done almost all other aspects of construction from excavation to finish punch lists on multi-million dollar projects. After going back to school and receiving a degree in Business Management from Sonoma State in 1989, John founded Marshall Construction Company. 

In 1999, it was time for a career change and John decided to pursue a career in home inspection. In 2000, John earned his International Code Council - International Conference of Building Officials Building Inspector Certification. John had both ASHI and CREIA inspector Certifications.

Late in 2001, John launched North Bay Inspection and was able to earn a loyal client base by offering high-quality inspections and reports at a fair price. John has professionally inspected over 8000 structures. Today, John works only occasionally as an inspector but primarily works in the background supporting Scott and North Bay Inspection. Mostly retired, he now spends time traveling, boating, motorcycles, camping, hiking, and most of all, spending time with his wife and family.
