My knowledge and experience consists of building, repair, and various remodeling  aspects of construction. In 1993, I began remodeling projects which led to garages, additions, roofing, concrete work and deck building. During the late 1990's and early 2000, I supervised the building of homes from site preparation to completion. Through all of this, I have gained a vast knowledge of home systems and components, which I would like to use for you.

My business partner, Scott Myers, is a past real estate agent familiar with all aspects of home buying. He has a vast business knowledge ranging from quality assurance control, asphalt repair and installation, to real estate and construction management.

We both are dedicated to making sure your home inspection service is cost effective, professional and completed in a timely manner.

Our software reporting system allows for a quick return on your report which will aid you in completing your real estate transaction. We use the most current computerized software program with photos so the client can easily understand what the report describes. We will then explain thoroughly all the aspects of the report to help you understand any issue during your inspection.

We recommend a home inspection when a person is getting ready to take possession of a newly constructed home, before closing a real estate transaction or before you list your home for sale. Most homeowners feel that with a new home everything is completed correctly, however, there are many things that can be overlooked which will cause issues in the future. If your new home can pass inspection then the few dollars you spend up front will save you thousands later. If you are the seller, a home inspection completed before the home is listed will allow you to fix issues before there is a price negotiation. It will allow you and your Realtor to get the most of the market value out of your home. 

We hope that your home buying experience is a successful one and we would like to be a part of protecting your investment for the future by providing a thorough inspection for you. 

Serving Counties of Monroe, Morgan, Owen, Greene, Brown and Lawrence.

Great job. Your inspection saved us so much time, energy, and expense. Because of the report we have decided not to go forward with the purchase of the property. We will definitely ask you to inspect another property when we find it.

Faron was very professional and took pictures of all areas of concern and the metrics of the systems, e.g. the hot water temperature @ the faucet, and the HVAC outlet ducts. We reviewed the pictures before the inspectors departed the property, and Faron answered all my questions. The comprehensive report was delivered as scheduled and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend and use Southern Indiana Home Inspections Inspectors again!!
- B.Z., November 2016
Thanks again to Faron and Scott for another thorough home inspection. We used Southern Indiana Home Inspections two years ago and would not have chosen any other company this time around. Everything they found was explained on site, and the report sent to us the next day was easy to follow and helped us to prioritize any issues they uncovered. Thanks so much!
- Z.M., November 2016
Faron was very nice and very knowledgeable. I let a couple family members see the report to get their opinions as well and we all were impressed with the level of detail and findings that the inspectors came across. Faron also made himself available for additional questions via phone and was prompt with a reply and generous with past experiences/suggestions. I would certainly recommend him or use him again in the future.
- T.D., November 2016
The inspectors that came out to the house was very knowledgeable with there inspection. They was very knowledgeable about all of the problems that they found and explained them to us where we could understand them.I would recommend this company and these Inspectors to anyone for there next home inspection for there house.
- C.C., Ellettsville IN, October 2016
Faron was very methodical and meticulous. He followed a plan to assess each element of the house in sequence so that nothing was overlooked. While I followed him, he answered my questions clearly and fully. I learned a lot about the house by following him around. When he found issues, he was able to give me an assessment of the magnitude of the issue and how to address it.
- R.P., October 2016
Very thorough throughout the entire inspection. Very courteous and polite, took the time to explain everything I needed to know about the house. Will defiantly use in the future!

Very thorough inspection that uncovered a hidden defect in the home that I would have never noticed until after closing. Your inspection saved me many thousands of dollars in repairs and the headaches associated with it. Thank you very much! I would not only use you again, but I will recommend you to others.
- M.H., August 2016
Most thorough home inspection that we have experienced in our 35 years of 10 home purchases. Thank you for caring about us as the prospective home owner.
- B.H., August 2016
Mr. Farron Lake and his team were absolutely spectacular. They gave prompt responses to ALL communication / questions I asked, they showed up for the inspection on time, they were dressed clean and professionally, and, during the inspection, walked me through exactly what they were doing and why. During the conclusion of the inspection, Mr. Lake ran through a rough draft of his team's analysis by showing me digital photographs they had taken of any suspect findings, and then explained how they could be remedied. Afterwards, Mr. Lake told me that I would be receiving a copy of his report via electronic mail. The report which I received was professionally put together, and it included clear, color pictures, a thorough and easy to read synopsis of their findings, a termite inspection report, and an invoice. Further, the price paid for the services was extremely fair, and I am happy to report that I would recommend Mr. Lake's team to anyone in search of a great home inspection team.
- J.C., July 2016
Professional yet friendly and able to explain findings in laymans terms and help me understand what items were necessity and niceties.
- H.P., June 2016
The inspection was very thorough and you explained everything very concisely to me. It was a great experience. I would definitely use you again and I will recommend you to everyone! Thank you!
- S.K., June 2016
Faron was absolutely awesome!!! Showed up at the time stated he would be there, and finished right when he told us he would. We left during the inspection to let Faron work, but he made sure he called us to let us know he was wrapping up so he could go over the entire report before he left. He was very knowledgeable about his trade. Very detailed throughout the entire process. Took time to discuss the questions we had, not just quick answers. He definitely knows what he is talking about and gave us a wonderful experience. We ARE going to recommend his services to everyone we come across needing them. A job WELL DONE! Way MORE than we could have expected... Thank You Matt Whitney
- M.W., May 2016
I have used Southern Indiana Home Inspections twice now. The first time, they helped prevent me from buying a house that probably would have been the biggest mistake of my life. It would have been a continuous money pit and I would have never been able to get rid of it for what I would have eventually put into it, just to make it safe. The second inspection was also a great help in that they pointed out that the house had 3 layers of shingles installed and recent hail damage. I would likely not have been able to get the house, which I wanted dearly because the insurance company would not insure it in that condition. Since we had Faron come out well in advance of our closing, we were able to let the homeowner know, turn the inspection into their insurance company and one way or the other, there will be a new roof on the house before closing. Not every inspection team would have caught that. They work as a team, are very thorough, and check each others work, making sure every inch of the house is documented. I would and will highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of a home inspection, which is anyone thinking about buying a house, trust me!!
- D.M., Poland IN, May 2016
You both did a fantastic job! You were punctual and professional. We will definitely recommend you to friends and family.
- M.M., April 2016
Thank you Faron. It was a pleasure meeting you and I like the professional manner in which you conducted your inspection.
- E.H., Bloomington IN, April 2016
The most thorough inspection ever. So very professional and such wonderful customer service!
- J.L., April 2016
The inspectors were very thorough and we appreciated the time taken to review the items of concern and to answer our questions after they completed the inspection. I would not hesitate to call Southern Indiana Home Inspections again, or to recommend them to others. Thank you !
- D.B., April 2016
Professionals in the strongest sense of the word. Faron and Scott were truly extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to providing the best inspection that I could have asked for. I liked the way they were very methodical and tried to exploit any issues currently or could be an issue in the future. Very satisfied how the report came out and how it was listed with an initial summary and the specific issues at hand and what needs to happen to bring it up to speed. I highly recommend anyone that wants a thorough and knowledgeable inspection...thanks again!
- M.C., April 2016
Excellent and thorough job, professional and pleasant personnel. We had brought our own builder with us during the inspection and even he had commented how thorough the inspectors were from Southern Indiana Home Inspectors.
- S.G., March 2016
This was a very thorough inspection. Excellent job, friendly inspectors

- V.T., February 2016
Faron was extremely thorough and helpful, he answered all the questions we had and provided information on any concerns we had.

I would definitely recommend Faron and the entire SIHI team to anyone else looking for a home inspection.
- G.H., February 2016
I was surprised on how in detail our report was, and received it in a timely manner. Photos were included so we could see the areas the house needed updating. I will defiantly use this company again for my next home inspection. Only complaint is that they are not certified in everything! I would love for them to do the other needed inspections! Haha :)
- J.M., December 2015
Excellent, timely, and friendly service. Answered all my questions, gave sound advice, and allowed me to view everything going on during the inspection. The final report I received was clear, concise, easy to read and understand... very visual. I would definitely use again if I ever purchase another home in Monroe County.

- J.T., May 2015
Very thorough and professional job! Farron and Scott were polite and understanding and took the time to explain things so they could be easily understood. They also had pictures on a tablet that we were able to see to get a preliminary "report". We were very impressed! We would gladly recommend them to any prospective home buyer
- M.S., April 2015
Faron was thorough, patient, and kind. As first time home buyers in the process of buying an older home, we had lot of questions. Faron answered all of them and patiently explained more complicated matters. We'll use his report now and in the years to come. It's essentially a manual on our to-be home. Faron's report also helped us identify which repairs to prioritize, and with the knowledge, we sent the seller a reasonable request which she accepted completely. Faron was the utmost professional and we would recommend him in a heartbeat. We appreciate everything he did for us and will tell everyone who will listen to us to book him. Thank you for such great work!
- A.W., March 2015
Faron did an excellent job at identifying smaller issues and cosmetic problems as well as identifying large issues that can drastically reduce the value of the home. I would absolutely recommend Faron! Thanks!
- A.W., March 2015
You two did a through job and I will write a positive review if you wish to post it on your website. Comments: I understand how careful you have to be in your business. And I understand that you don't know me. But you, and Scott in particular are guarded in what you say to such an extent that I don't feel like I got my questions answered sufficiently. You observe, you record factual data and present it well and I received my report promptly. But as a professional who is in homes on a daily basis, I value your opinion. I would have liked to know if the issues pointed out are serious or just an indication of normal wear and tear on a 53 year old home. Please don't take this that I am unhappy with what you did. "Faron and Scott did a thorough inspection of my home and I would recommend them. They leave no stone unturned!" Cut the above to post on your website if you want.
- G.K., February 2015
The inspection was well done and included an easy to follow report.
