home inspections

A professional home inspection helps you learn about the home you're buying, gives you confidence to address potential concerns, and delivers peace of mind about your new investment.

I will thoroughly evaluate all aspects of the home that are visible and accessible in order to determine the safety of the structure and features, as well as the quality and integrity of the framework. I will go the extra mile when inspecting any home. 

I follow and exceed the Wisconsin Standards of Practice and also the InterNACHI Standards of Practice which includes an extensive examination of the following: 

  • Windows
  • Roof
  • Foundation
  • Exterior
  • Basement
  • Garage
  • Heating
  • Appliances
  • Crawlspace
  • Fireplace
  • Insulation
  • Interior
  • Electrical
  • Attic
  • Cooling
  • Doors
  • Irrigation
  • Plumbing
  • Ventilation
  • Pools
  • Spas

Pre-Listing inspections

Selling a home is stressful enough, and you don’t want to be surprised by anything a buyer’s inspector finds. Get the maximum value for your home and stay in control of any needed repairs by gaining knowledge about your home’s condition before you list. 


Light commercial inspections

A Light Commercial Inspection is a comprehensive inspection of smaller sized commercial use properties such as storefronts, churches, offices, restaurants and various low-rise buildings. It includes a visual assessment of all accessible areas of the commercial property's interior and exterior.


4-point insurance inspections

A “4-Point Inspection” focuses only on four main areas of interest in a home: HVAC, electrical wiring and panels, plumbing connections and fixtures and the roof. 


radon testing

 

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that seeps out of the earth and is undetectable by human senses alone. It is the leading cause of lung cancer among those who do not use tobacco products, and the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer among those who do. Almost any home with a radon problem can have successful abatement repairs to keep your family healthy, but the problem needs to be discovered before it can be fixed — and before it causes life-threatening damage.


11th month new home inspections

Contact me before your builder’s warranty expires. Building a house is an enormous and complex undertaking to manage, and details can sometimes be missed by even the best of builders. Make sure you catch any oversights with enough time for your builder to address them before your warranty expires. I'll come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before your warranty expires.


annual maintenance inspections

Even if you’re not selling your home, it’s a good idea to have your home inspected periodically so that you can stay ahead of any potential maintenance needs. This service will help you keep your home in good condition and prevent it from suffering serious, long-term and expensive damage from minor issues that should be addressed now.
