Your Trusted Master Home Inspector


Serving The Greater Grand Rapids Area For Over 10 Years!

Same Day On-Line Reporting

In most cases, your inspection report will be delivered within a few hours of the inspection.  The report will have detailed pictures and will be in terms that are easy to understand.  The safety hazards and items that are not functioning properly are separated into a report summary at the end of the report.




Advanced Inspection Tools

We want to make sure that even though a home inspection is non-invasive in nature that we do everything possible to bring maximum value and insight to your inspection experience.  Our inspectors not only carry basic tools that any inspector should have but also carry advanced tools to assist in uncovering defects that may go unnoticed.  


200% Satisfaction Guarantee

Finding a good inspector is difficult, and we want you to feel confident in your choice.  If during the home inspection, you are not completely thrilled with our services, just let us know.  Not only will we give you you're money back but since we feel so strongly about having a good thorough inspection, we will pay for another certified master inspector to perform the job.  Just see what the 400+ clients have had to say about us.
