OUR INSPECTION SPECIALISTS

Jim Adams

Jim Adams opened Made to Last Inspections in 2011.   His father, an accomplished carpenter, had insisted that while growing up Jim be by his side to learn as much as possible.  The years spent learning from his father paid off! After spending most of his adult life working in customer service at one level or another, Jim decided to use the skills he learned from his father, and became a home inspector.  

Since starting Made to Last, Jim has performed thousands of inspections for buyers and sellers.  He loves what he does, and it shows in the reviews he receives.

“My realtor recommended Made to last. Jim (the owner) did my home inspection and he was awesome!! He inspected a few of my potential homes and helped me make this best choice for my first home. He was very honest and informative while explaining the inspection to me. And we had some great laughs along the way! I would highly recommend this company!”

“This small company has the BEST customer service; every person I was in contact with was a pleasure to associate with. The owner, Jim, has a great personality and is very up front and honest about everything that is going on with your home; he has great suggestions about your home also if needed. The lady I talked with for scheduling was also a delight, she was very thorough and appreciative. I will also say Made to Last Home Inspections is not out for your money; they just want to help and it shows! Thank you Made to Last, we will definitely refer your company to every home owner we know.”

When not inspecting or running the business side of things, Jim enjoys RV Camping trips with his Bride Kari, and their 5 year old granddaughter Shyla.  He also enjoys preparing food for family and friends, he is well known is some Real Estate offices for the smoked chicken and sausage lunches he brings in!

Kenneth Halford

Kenneth Halford joined Made to Last Inspections in 2013.  Having an electro-mechanical background helped in his transition to inspecting the different systems of the home.  Kenneth and Jim have known one another and worked together for almost 20 years. Kenneth lives in the Keller area, is married and has two children, a son in College at Tarlton , and a daughter in High School.  

Kenneth started his home inspection career with us here at Made to Last as soon as he had completed his training and passed the State exam.  He worked under the supervision of Jim Adams for the first year, shadowing Jim in all things inspection related. Since then, he has taken off and his friendly personality shows through to all of his customers.  

“Kenneth with Made To Last was awesome. He was very thorough with his inspection & allowed my realtor & I to be present for it. He explained everything in easy to understand terms & answered all my questions. He was very kind & professional which made me feel very secure in buying the home. I will definitely recommend them to my friends & family.”

“Very good experience. I felt like I was talking to an old family friend rather than someone that was being paid to inspect my home. Kenneth was friendly and did a good job explaining the report. I would use them again for my home inspection needs.”

Kenneth is a big sports fan and played competitive soccer until just recently when he figured out that he’s actually aging like the rest of us.  He enjoys all things Halloween (yes, he’s “that guy” in his neighborhood). We are pleased to have Kenneth at Made to Last Inspections!

Russel Bonner

Russell Bonner became acquainted with Made to Last as a Real Estate Agent.  He was always looking for a good inspector to refer to his buyers. After working with Made To Last, he realized this company had the high standards he wanted for his clients.  It was then that he set out to get the necessary education and licensing to become an inspector.

Having worked with him as an agent, we knew that he had the kind of work ethic that fit with Made to Last, so once he had completed his education we brought him on board!  He worked hand in hand with Jim for the first year learning the inspection ropes, and now he’s out on his own gaining the respect of our clients!

“Russell was very knowledgeable. He was very clear in explaining his findings and really highlighting the items that were a must-address versus what were normal findings in a home of that age. He walked us through the home and made sure we understood what the potential impacts, or lack thereof, of not addressing the issues could have on the longevity of the appliance/home. I would definitely recommend working with Made to Last Home Inspections!”

“Russell was fantastic. Knowledgeable and personable!!! I felt comfortable to ask any questions I wanted. I loved how he reviewed the report with me and the pictures are the report are so helpful too! You came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint. I’ll definitely recommend you to others from now on too!”

Russell works full time with Made to Last, but aspires to build his own Inspection business that he started this year, Dream Home Inspections.   Russell is based out of the Duncanville area, where he lives with his wife and sons.
