My wife and I have had Larry inspect a couple of places for us and he has been good to work with. He’s a good communicator who is very knowledgeable and thorough. He provides results in a very timely manner and he does an excellent job of noting the finer details that some miss. With Larry noting those finer details, he enables you to make a good decision based on solid information. Thank you again Larry for your expertise and professionalism.

Joe performed the inspection of the older house we are in the process of purchasing and has given us an incredibly detailed and valuable insight into the property ... we could not be more impressed and thankful for his thoroughness and professionalism! We hoped to gain an understanding, and Joe's report far exceeded what we thought an inspection would include (our real estate agent also was very impressed!) Thank you for doing an outstanding job and we would gladly refer you to anyone looking for an outstanding report. 5 stars all day!

Felt a good job was done, just need some recommendations for contractors. Thanks a lot.

TOP MARKS! He spent about 3.5 hrs very thoroughly inspecting and reviewing, then personally showing me a few unusual problems so that I might understand what would later be in the report. I had read someone else's comments that this was the best $375 they had ever spent and I feel similarly. It was definitely a product worth it's price AND in the end saved me from buying a home with some serious "defects" as described by the Purchase Agreement contract. Absolutely give this father - son team top marks. KN

Awesome Joe. Did an amazing job!! We were thrilled we went with ProTec. Our money was well spent by utilizing their services. Joe (inspector) was professional, personable, (he let me shadow his every move during the inspection). Customer service was top notch, very knowledgeable, and VERY thorough as he inspected. We will certainly pass along their home inspection contact information to others who are in need of a home inspection.
- J.D., May 2021
We had the pleasure of working with Larry and Joe. Both are very professional and their reports are extremely thorough. The report itself was superb, with intricate details, photos, and videos of the issues that needed to be addressed. They were able to give us the piece of mind that we needed.
- B.S., December 2020
The report was comprehensive with great attention to detail. The big findings we were able to use to work with the seller and the smaller things are a great punch list of items to tackle after we move it. Great job!
- M.G., September 2020
I can't say enough good things about Joe and Larry. Our recent home buying experience involved two different properties. Their ability to fit our inspections into their schedule was great, allowing for us to make decisions within a reasonable time frame. Joe's thoroughness in going through every outlet, window, wire, and wall was impressive. If there's a crawlspace, he will crawl it... if there's a roof, he will walk it (if safe). Very quick turnaround on the report and includes a nice online system that allows for additional tracking of concerns as well as links to additional information. Top notch work. Worth every penny. If you're still around for our next home purchase, we'll be calling.
- K.H., June 2020
Thank you for handling this inspection for me. What an awesome job you did including being extremely thorough !! I love the pictures. I'm thankful for the comments and most importantly the honesty. Sherri Parris

Larry Wall did a magnificent inspection. The pictures and report really gave us an idea of not only how the house stands now but what may need repair in the future. If you are buying a house I highly recommend this very knowledgeable professional. This report was much more in depth and detailed than I expected. We are buying from out of state so it was important to me that someone with an eye for detail could walk through on our behalf. Larry has excellent inspection skills and is a highly trained professional which is exactly what we needed. His report was easy to read and understand. I recommend getting your house inspected just to know the condition it is in whether you are selling or not. Very glad he was recommended to us, fee was expected and reasonable, expertise was a surprise and welcomed, now we know what we are truly buying and feel empowered to proceed. Thank you Larry and Pro Tech!!!
- G.A., Daggett MI, July 2019
Mr. Wall's inspection and report were very thorough, easy to understand, clear and concise while still providing all of the information I was looking for. His services were efficient and in my opinion "top notch". I would definitely utilize Mr. Wall the next time I was looking for home inspection services in this area. Thank you Mr. Wall, your efforts are appreciated.
- K.K., July 2019
Pro-Tec performed a very thorough inspection and fast turnaround with a report that was very detailed, advanced, and using the latest technology. Very happy with their work!
- J.T., June 2019
It was super quick and easy to make an appointment. Very thorough inspection and detailed report! Walked me through the house at the end to show me both major and minor things of note, asked me if I had any questions or if I had any concerns of my own he could go over while we were there. This was my first time getting a house inspected and they went above and beyond what I expected. Thanks guys.
- M.M., May 2019
Joe was an absolute professional!
- J.P., November 2018

I would highly recommend Larry to anyone! We are very pleased!
- A.C., June 2018
This is the second time I've engaged PRO-TEC to inspect a house which I was considering to buy. The first time, Larry's thorough inspection saved me from buying a home with many major problems. The second inspection, which was completed last week by Larry and Joe, was again very thorough. They uncovered some items which allowed me to negotiate a significantly lower price with the seller. I'm on my way to closing, knowing exactly what problems (minor and major) the home has. I can absolutely recommend PRO-TEC for anyone needing a home inspection. Larry and Joe are great!
- G.H., May 2018
I was very impressed with how quickly the condo was inspected and how detailed the report is. This will be very helpful. Thank you.
- L.C., April 2018
We had Joe. He was very friendly and professional. We felt we could trust him which is very important.
- T.B., March 2018
We have used Pro-Tec for inspections on three different homes, and thank goodness!! Your very thorough inspections have saved us from getting trapped into potential 'money pit' mortgages. Scheduling and reporting have been very prompt and detailed, and very much appreciated. On top of that, you are so friendly and easy to work with. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Pro-Tec Inspections to potential home buyers. It is so important to include an inspection in the home-buying process!! James & Sue Wentworth
- J.W., March 2018
I loved how thorough the inspection was, very nice people!!
- C.P., October 2017
Great job guys! Came out on short notice and finished the report in a very timely manner. Thanks again!
- J.T., September 2017
Once again, an extremely thorough inspection! Couldn't be more pleased. M Hill
- M.H., September 2017
Great working with you, Larry. Best $375 we've ever spent. We still feel pretty good about moving ahead with the cabin, but your inspection tells us what we'll need to concentrate on first. Like you said, we can just chip away at things over time. We very much appreciate the high level of detail.
- K.B., July 2017
I couldn't be more pleased with the excellent work Larry Wall has done! I will absolutely recommend him to others.
- M.H., July 2017
I would recommend Larry Wall to anyone that needs a quality, professional and timely home inspection. His reports are very thorough and easy to understand and he takes the time to answer questions as needed. I have used his services twice now on two different properties and have been very pleased with the way everything was handled.
- M.L., June 2017
Larry was extremely detailed and thorough in his inspection and provided us with sufficient information to allow us to make a better informed decision on our search for the right home for our family. Would definitely recommend!
- R.C., May 2017
Larry Wall from Pro-Tec Inspections did a fantastic job inspecting a home that my wife and I are in the process of buying. He saved me money, time, and much future aggravation with his thorough inspection and detailed written report. Don't hesitate to hire Pro-Tec Inspections when you need a home inspection done. This guy is the best in the business.
- A.L., May 2017
This inspection was excellent. From top to bottom of the house, very detailed reports, comments and suggestions. I appreciate the reasonable price for the inspection, especially considering how large the house is and how long it took. He was very likeable, was more than willing to answer questions as he was inspecting the house. I would recommend to anyone that needs a home inspection!
- T.W., April 2017
Was very thorough and timely in his report. He did a great job and was worth the fee.
- A.L., April 2017

Comment: Very pleased with the report and its detail. Also larry showed very little distraction in an environment that was occupied with a loud and intentionally distracting owner.. Suggestion: An upper loft view of the garage and also garage opener would have been nice considering the ladder at hand
- T.B., February 2017
Fantastic job! Thank you for your hard work!

- J.H., February 2016
Larry gave me such a good sales pitch over the phone. He was a $50 more than another inspector but he told me I'd be very pleased with his inspection and reports...And boy was I !! He took tons of photos and basically made our honey-do list. I would highly recommend Larry Wall for home inspections. He is very thorough and professional. Thank you Larry!! Carol Newbury, Oconto
- C.N., January 2016
The report and pictures are so useful. I feel very confident in his assessments of the home. This inspection is very important since I am buying this home without ever seeing it, I am very happy with the quality of the report.
- R.W., December 2015
This is the 2nd house Larry inspected for us and both were done with a high degree of professionalism and detail. Very knowledgeable and communicates results in a way that is understandable to anyone. Thanks Larry for a job well done and will recommend you to anyone looking for these services. Jerry
- J.K., October 2015
Mr. Wall, You have offered us confidence in buying our family home, on two separate inspecting occasions. We are so grateful for your personable approach, while we are impressed by your complete attention to detail and subsequent thorough report(s). Thank you for your efforts. We really appreciate you!
- B.K., September 2015
We were so surprised how thorough the inspection report is! It is very detailed and fully documented by photographs so one knows exactly what the inspector saw. We are very glad we contracted with Larry to do our inspection because we now feel confident we can make good decisions about the property that interests us. We have purchased homes in the past but never had such complete inspections. Thanks, Larry
- K.L., August 2015
Larry Wall did a home inspection for me, a prospective home buyer. His inspection was as thorough as any I have ever seen. All of the attached photos clearly identify the exact place to which his comments refer and the exact nature of the problem or concern. I knew it was a good inspection when the seller, who was present, asked over and over, "Are you finished yet?"
- B.J., July 2015
Very good inspection on our home, noticed things we missed.Thank-you for an excellent job.
- W.P., June 2015
Really just an excellent overall experience. Very thorough but never too busy or in a hurry to answer questions. Clearly highly experienced. He'd be an awesome handy-man as well!!! Anyway, I'd have ZERO reservations about using him again or recommending him to a seller or buyer.
- D.R., June 2015
Thank you for the very detailed report filled with pictures! Since we are out of state and were unable to be there for the inspection we appreciate the excellent job you did!
- N.P., June 2015
Wow. Mr. Wall gives an excellent report. It is very detailed & well laid out. Easy to read and understand. I really like the recommendations given at the end of the report. So easy to determine the order repairs need to be made.
- M.C., May 2015
Extremely thorough and knowledgeable.
- D.N., May 2015
Tk you, great inspection.
- R.C., April 2015
Thank You Larry for being so thorough. Much Appreciated!
- K.M., February 2015
Larry was recommended to me by a professional who works with titles and properties. He responded and did a very thorough inspection within a couple days of calling him, and the report was available the next day. The inspection took a few hours, he took lots of pictures, prioritized the faults, and prepared a professional report. Highly recommend!
- C.K., November 2014
He was very thorough, quick, and accommodating. Went through all the areas that were a concern and friendly service. Highest marks possible. We were very impressed!

My whole family is very impressed with your very detailed report. I am glad I took my son Dale's advice and hired you to do my inspection. My daughter Kris says that it is just great and you should be commended. It was wonderful to have Kris in Illinois and my sister in Washington state be able to see the report and go through it with me via the computer. Thank you again for all your work. Sylvia J. Stanchik
- S.S., March 2014
Very thorough and knowledgable.

I would recommend your services at any time. Your work is professional and yet done with charm and courtesy. You make a time that has some stress a little bit easier to endure. Thank you!
- , December 2013
Excellent report! Larry was great with his communication, very thorough with his examination, and did a nice job of explaining everything. I would strongly recommend him to anyone, and we will use him for a sellers inspection before we put our old house on the market. Good Job! Eric Knudsen
- E.K., September 2013
Mr. Wall did a great job with the inspection of the house I am looking to buy. He took a ton of pictures to make sure I could and would see everything he was reporting since I was unable to be present during the inspection. I highly recommend him.
- R.M., August 2013
thank you so much for being so helpful for both of our houses.
- K.D., July 2013
This is the third home purchase I've had and this was the most thorough report of all of the them. The photos were helpful and the color-coding of "issues" as well. (I get geeked up about things like that.) I appreciate how quickly you got back to me, finished the inspection, and sent the report. I also like that you emailed it. You were very professional - thank you!
- A.K., July 2013
We were extremely impressed by the thoroughness of the home inspection and all the detail/pictures provided. Larry was very patient and answered all of the questions we posed to him. We would not hesitate to recommend him to future homeowners.
- A.L., May 2013
Thank you again Larry for your excellent inspection. We will have any safety issues taken care of in buying this home. As for the deceased bat, will have to cover those open areas on power box for safety and to keep out bats. I will have the furnace and AC checked. Thank you again for your thorough and excellent inspection.
- T.B., April 2013
Larry thank you so very much for taking your time and thoroughly inspecting our new home. The explanations from you in person were great and made me feel so much better about our home. You took the time to do exactly what we needed. We are thankful for all your help. The pictures are greatly appreciated. I would recommend you to anyone. Thank you again!
- M.G., March 2013
Larry is always knowledgable and professional
- R.K., Escanaba MI, January 2013
Larry was very thorough and very knowledgable regarding conditions, root causes and suggestive repairs. His pleasing and courtious demeanor made it enjoyable to work with. I am very appreciative that he expediently fit my inspection within his work load and also worked around my work schedule so I could be there during the inspection.
- D.B., August 2012
I am very pleased with the home inspection conducted by Larry and the very thorough report he provided. The report included many more pictures than expected. Also, Larry walked the roof instead of just using binoculars as other inspectors do. I was present during the inspection and Larry took the time to answer my questions and point things out to me. With this information and the report, I was able to make an informed decision about the home being considered for purchase. I would not hesitate to recommend Larry for anyone needing a good home inspector.
- G.H., June 2012
I had the opportunity to use Larry's service this past year to purchase a home over the internet. Yes, I did that!! However,I would had not done it had it not been for Larry and the service he offers. Larry did a detailed report with specifics on the good, the bad, and the ugly. (no just kidding) Everything was done in a structured format which included pictures and points of interest.As a Investigator of many years in a totally different field I was taken aback by the fact that everytime I called long distance from San Diego Larry answered my calls and was very straight forward with his answers. When I first called Larry I asked him a simple question. If I put him up against another Inspector who would he not want to go up against? He answer was quick and clear. He said "nobody, because their is no one around here as good as me". I purchased my retirement home based on his findings and I look to many years of enjoying that house. Thank You Larry!
- M.M., April 2012
Very thorough and professional. Took the time to inspect and note things I missed when doing my own inspection, and things not easy to find. I would definitely recommend Larry to someone else.
- D.G., April 2012
Great job and wonderful,extensive report. We feel totally confident knowing what we know now!! Thanks for your prompt, concise service. Karen & Mick Costantini
- K.C., November 2011

- R.W., June 2011
Very nice, well organized report. It increased my confidence about the purchase, but also alerted me to items that need attention. You were very polite and prompt. Thanks.
- J.G., June 2011
We called Larry on a Friday morning at 10:00 and he was on site by 12:00 to do the inspection. We can't tell you enough how much we appreciated the prompt service. It was a pleasure to work with you.
- R.C., September 2010
Great Job! Fast service. A+++ Highly recommend.

- S.S., July 2010
Thank you, Larry, for being so accomodating when scheduling the inspection, for taking the time you did to explain the inspection findings, for explaining how the problems might be corrected and what typical average costs for these repairs might be. Its been a pleasure working with you and you've eased my concerns about purchasing this condo.
- K.C., June 2010
Quick, efficient and very helpful!
- S.H., May 2010
