Home Inspection Services
CPI: Certified Professional Inspector

Thank you for choosing us to perform your home inspection!

We are proud to give you a wide variety of solutions with the personal and dedicated service that has always distinguished us. Our professional inspector will keep you worry free.  

Home inspections provide great leverage during real estate transactions, but most importantly they provide awareness to the homeowner of home conditions beyond the emotional appeal or cosmetic appearance. A buyer can benefit from negotiation and preventive maintenance, a seller can benefit from having a third party provide disclosures that would not be renegotiable, performing repairs more cost effectively than a last minute transaction rush, and a long time homeowner can benefit by verifying improvements or consulting issues with an impartial party rather than a contractor's sales agent.

Please CHECK OUR CALENDAR to insure availability when you REQUEST INSPECTION.

Appointments can also be scheduled via email, or by calling our office phone at +1 (507) 316-0339. Voicemails are normally returned the same day.

3 Radon Test is a short-term monitoring lasting 48 hours duration using a digital Continuous Radon Monitor under sealed home conditions. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, and according to the Olmsted County Health Department records about half of Olmsted County homes have radon levels that exceed the Environmental Protection Agency Action Level (4.0 pCi/L). It is even present above action levels in some homes with Radon Mitigation systems installed.
