Legacy Home Inspection
        Bretton T Austin, Owner, and Senior Inspector, at Legacy Home Inspection, studied Architectural Drafting at Valparaiso High School and Purdue University before moving to Phoenix, AZ in 1998. There he began his Legacy in Arizona's fast-paced Residential & Commercial Construction Industry.

By the age of 21, Bretton was promoted to Foreman at one of the largest Residential & Commercial Construction Firms in the Phoenix Metro Area, often building more than one home a week. He also managed multi-million dollar Commercial & High-end Luxury Home Projects at the same firm. ​​

      Before relocating to Flagstaff, AZ, Bretton also worked as a Project Manager/Superintendent for a very successful Commercial General Contracting Firm specializing exclusively in High-Rise Commercial Construction Projects in Downtown Phoenix.   
       In early 2009, Bretton accepted a job offer at the U.S. Department of Energy as a Home Inspector / Building Analyst. While working in the public sector, he aquired extensive training and certifications in Residential Energy Usage, Combustion Appliance Safety, Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning Refrigeration (HVAC+R), Building Pressure Diagnostics, Lead-Safe Renovations, and OSHA Compliance.

Bretton helped train and grow many construction companies throughout AZ participating in the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) utilizing funds from the American Relief & Recovery Act (ARRA).  His local agency received special recognition for exceeding it's projected goals during his tenure. Bretton is still well known and recognized for his work developing and administering the program in many Northern Arizona Communities serving Yavapai, Coconino, Navajo, & Apache Counties. After a government sequestration significantly reduced funding for his program in 2013,  Bretton founded Legacy Home Inspection to continue serving the communities of Northern Arizona with his unparalleled experience.
