AHIT Certified - ASHI Member - MN Licensed Builder #BC376061


Jonathan Kline is a Minnesota Licensed Builder. His 20 years of experience working hands on in the home renovation business provides a strong background and great insight when inspecting homes. Call today to schedule your inspection.


I am very happy with the service I got from Jon. He was professional, prompt, and very thorough. I would say it was the best money I have ever spent. Jon did a great job inspecting a home I had just put an offer on. My offer was contingent on inspection. I had ten days to get the inspection. Called late on a Friday and had the inspection early the following Monday. He was in constant communication with me. Jon wrote a very thorough inspection report that was full of very detailed photos. I could not be happier. Made my decision on the property very easy. Like I said money well spent. Would highly recommend to anyone or use again in the future.

Jonathan did an excellent job for inspecting a cabin I was purchasing. He was very thorough, professional and knowledgeable.

Jon was able to squeeze in our home inspection when we had a tight deadline and provided a very detailed report that caught several issues that needed to be addressed by the seller. We appreciated his attention to detail!
- J.K., November 2020
As a retired realtor, Jonathan did the most thorough inspection I have ever seen. Unfortunately, we couldn’t proceed with the purchase because of the extensive corrections that needed to be made. I had visions of the repairs that would have come up in the future due to the nature of the building construction. He saved us from buying a headache. Thank You, money well spent. He will be doing the next inspection as well, when we find another property. Melanie & Bob
- R.D., October 2020

Kline was extremely thorough. He uses the latest technology to complete your home inspection. He provided insight from the smallest of problems, to the most major of issues.

Jon is very professional and knowledgeable about conducting house inspections. He was punctual and supported me following him around and asking questions. He made recommendations on what to do with items that were found. He would even take a second look at something if I thought it may be an issue.

Jon Kline is the best inspector we have ever encountered. Jon's report is amazingly thorough with photos clearly showing what he found along with reference material explaining the issue. My wife and I have purchased many homes over the years and because the home was fairly new, we felt that with our experience we probably did not need an inspection on this home. We are so glad we had the inspection. There were literally dozens of significant issues Jon found that we had completely missed. The modest inspection fee more than paid for itself many times over. We highly recommend Jon Kline.
- E.L., Brainerd MN, March 2020
