Why am I the best choice as your home inspector in Eastern Iowa? Most importantly I have been doing inspections in Eastern Iowa for 20 years. Working in multiple trades for years I gained a well rounded skill set with residential and commercial buildings. I started working with an energy consultant business to do home inspections locally for code compliance and efficiency. During my time there I learned how to work hand in hand with clients to implement and test energy efficient design into their home. This includes framing, insulation, electrical and HVAC systems.

During my time there I was approached by a national HERS provider. This lead me to the ability to work with clients and builders all over the USA. By doing this I was able to expand my knowledge base to include a more in depth understanding of HVAC systems as well as code compliance. After working there many years the travel and limited time with family just wasn’t worth it. To me family is everything and that is why I work as hard as I can for my clients. Buying a home is already stressful enough.

With the support of my family and friends we started doing home inspections again in Eastern Iowa. Our goal as a company is to offer our clients a great and stress free inspection process. This includes using the most up to date processes and software available on the market today. We expand our knowledge with continuing education and working with different trade organizations. Our reports are delivered with in 1 hour of the inspection end. This ensures you and your agent have the information you need to move forward.

We are a life long resource, long after we do your inspection. When you need information on issues that arise with your home or want to know who to call to fix something. You give us a call and we will do our best to help you find the information you need.
