General Home Inspection

Ours is not just a home inspection but an education on the home, its features, how to maintain them, and any existing issues. We guarantee even the most informed homeowner will learn something during our inspection.

Choosing A Home Inspector

There are many things to consider when selecting a home inspection company. Here are a few we think are very important:

  • Inspectors Credentials: Home inspectors are not licensed or regulated in the State of Michigan. This means that anyone can call themself a home inspector. Because of this, credentials are one of the main tools for you to know your inspector is qualified.

    My Personal Qualifications:
    - AmeriSpec Certified Inspector: 407811
    - Michigan Builders license: 2101191479
    - ASHI Inspector: 251601
    - ASHI Great Lakes Chapter, IBR Award
    - Bachelors of Architecture: Lawrence Technological University
    - Experience as residential contractor
    - NRPP Certified for Radon testing: RT-106425

    * IBR - Inspector By Review: This designation is awarded to individuals whose skills of identifying and reporting deficiencies in a home have been reviewed and confirmed by a committee of their peers.

  • What Past Clients Had To Say: It is easy to post a few select positive comments on a website. We invite all of our clients and realtors to comment on our services and make those comments available to you. We use an independent review company (Listen 360) to collect and make our reviews available to you.

    See what our customers have to say about us:


  • What Is Inspected: During a general home inspection, we inspect over 400 items in categories including: exterior home components, electrical systems, roof, foundation, plumbing, heating and cooling systems and more. We open electrical panels, mount roofs, and enter all accessible attics and crawlspaces when it can be done safely.
  • How It Is Reported: Our report is a full narrative report including description of the issues, photos, a course of action, explanation of  unfamiliar terms, and suggestions of how to prevent future issues from arising. Many home inspectors produce a simple hand written or computer generated check list. Make sure you see a sample of the type of report you are going to receive before selecting your home inspector. After all, it is the report you are paying for.

  • Inspection Day: We typically arrive early and inspect the exterior of the home prior to your arrival. Upon your arrival we will review the exterior of the home and then proceed to the interior where we encourage you to come along as we inspect the property. During the inspection we will explain any deficiencies and features you may not be familiar with. Our inspections are typically 2.5 to 3 hours for an average size home with typical deficiencies.

Rich was terrific and I highly recommend him. Right from the start he was responsible, flexible and had a genuine way of communicating (confident, knowledgeable and simply a nice person). Technically, he was very sound including an array of inspection materials, equipment and resources - well prepared. Rich was very patient and thorough conducting the inspection and took time to explain his findings as well as offer company/industry standards of care (recommendations on monitoring or enhancing going forward) - much appreciated. The report was professional, completed and delivered in a timely manner. His insights and recommendations were very helpful to me. I highly recommend Rich and Amerispec - first class professionals all the way!

Richard Hogan was a fantastic inspector, incredible thorough, detailed, and very honest. He is by far the best inspector that we have come across, and we felt that he truly saved us from a disastrous house. Highly recommend!!

Richard is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the building trade. He took his time and did a meticulous inspection. I am in the construction industry and was pleasantly surprised of the detail and effort that was made by Richard. I will be exclusively recommending his services moving forward.
