Why are we the best choice as your home inspectors in Eastern Iowa? Most importantly I have been doing inspections on residential and commercial properties 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.

This lead me to the ability to work with clients and builders all over the USA for a national HERS provider. 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, limited time with family it 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. You should know everything about your home before purchasing it.

With the support of my family and friends my wife and I started doing home inspections again in Eastern Iowa. Sara has been doing inspections with me for the last 7 years. 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.
