About P413

Fred Kertzel - Owner / Inspector

With 15 years in Quality Management, Fred has attained the inspection/auditing skills needed to facilitate the right inspection for you. 

Through a tremendous desire to succeed, Fred worked his way from a press helper in a print shop to a Quality Supervisor for a 30 million dollar year label manufacturer without a college degree.

While working in Quality over the next 15 years, Fred inspected / audited duties and activities in the printing industry, pharmaceutical industry and the bio industry. In December 2015, Fred began his career at Immunotek Bio Centers. He had no knowledge of the plasma industry and the FDA, EU and customer requirements. Through the next 3 months, he trained and gained the knowledge to assist opening a new center in Myrtle Beach, SC as the Quality Manager. In November 2016 the FDA audit was performed with zero findings.

In 2015, Fred decided to begin his training/certification in the home inspection industry through Inspection Certification Associates (ICA). Once certified, he began additional training through InterNACHI. Over these 2 years, a unique checklist was created to ensure all i's are dotted and t's are crossed. 

His life and professional experiences have been the foundation to begin this journey. Fred has passed South Carolina Residential Builders Commission state licensing exam in April, 2017. This was the beginning of P413 Home Inspection. We know you will be happy when you engage us in your home buying experience.

So what is P413??

P413 stands for Philippians 4:13.  "For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength." This company is built on faith. Fred and Shannon have 4 beautiful children and 4 amazing grandchildren. Through a lot of prayer, they were blessed by being able to adopt 2 boys through the foster care system. Based on this faith, they decided to start this business in April 2017.
