Trent Tarter

Licensed Home Inspector

Trent Tarter is the owner and inspector of Boise Valley Home Inspection. Since he can remember, attention to detail has always been a strength for Trent—it comes naturally, and in all the work he’s done, keeping the details in focus has been a key to success.

As a professional home inspector for over 16 years, Trent has only become more passionate about the nature of the work, enjoying every minute he spends revealing a home’s secrets to help protect families preparing for a truly monumental investment.

Boise Valley Home Inspection

A Full-Time Home Inspector

Since 2006

Trent Tarter started inspecting homes professionally on a full-time basis in 2006, but his knowledge of building science is rooted in hands-on construction. While working in Washington and Oregon, Trent held a license as a General Contractor, and his experience in the field runs the gamut from ground-up construction to large-scale renovations.

It goes without saying that this accrual of knowledge over the years is indispensable to Trent’s work as a home inspector. Whether you’ve fallen head over heels for a newly constructed home, or you’re interested in investing in a century-old historical property, you can count on Trent to inspect it to the absolute highest standard.

Peace of Mind

  • Technology is not to be ignored in this line of work, and we use the latest tech extensively whenever necessary—including thermal imaging to help us pin down the root cause of issues that are difficult to diagnose conventionally
  • As a licensed Structural Pest Inspector for over 16 years, Trent is a prime candidate for inspecting your existing or prospective real estate investment for evidence of damage caused by termites and other wood-destroying organisms
  • Providing exceptional customer service is a task that we take seriously—if you ever have a question before, during, or after a home inspection, please give us a call so that we can help in any way we can

When he’s not performing home inspections, Trent loves spending quality time with his wonderful family. Trent is a big fan of the outdoors, and you can often find him out fishing, biking, boating, hiking, and camping. Trent is also an avid gardener, and he enjoys working on home improvement and remodeling projects.
