Matthew Cottenham

Welcome, my name is Matt Cottenham I am the owner of Trademark Home Inspection and the certified inspector that will be performing your inspection. When I inspect a home my only interest is you. As a father and a husband, I perform every inspection with my family in mind.

Aside from making sure everything is structurally sound and functioning correctly while performing a home inspection, I always ask myself, would I feel safe putting my family in this home? I look for environmental issues like mold, asbestos, and lead paint. I will also look for other safety issues such as loose handrails, trip hazards, and electrical hazards just to name a few.

Lastly I will make sure you are comfortable with the home and know how to operate the systems. I will never rush your inspection to get to the next, and though most home inspections take between three and four hours I will stay onsite with you not only long enough for me to feel comfortable with the inspection, but long enough to make sure you are comfortable with everything about your home.


Michigan Licensed Builder, interNACHI Certified Home Inspector, NAMP Certified (Mold),IAC2 Certified (Mold and Radon)


My wife often tells me to stop looking around while we are out doing things. The truth is I can't. That is because inspecting isn't something I do or a job I have, It is something I am passionate about and enjoy doing.


Matt is very professional and gave honest, constructive feedback. The details in the report are great. Being a first-time home-buyer, I walked away educated and feeling more confident about my decision because of his expertise. Thank you!

We learned a lot. Thank you for being thorough. We feel strongly that we got out money worth even though we had to pass on the home. Look forward to future business.

Matt is awesome as an inspector. Very polite and easy to talk to. He really knows everything about home inspections and will not hesitate to give the details if anything of question is found. I like that I can ask questions and he is always able to give me a good answer. Matt is very thorough and has a keen eye for details. From what I have seen he has invested a good amount of money into making sure he has all the best equiptment for the job which makes me feel like I paid for a top quality inspector.

Thank you Matthew. Your team was very professional. We truly appreciate the professionalism, prompt responsiveness, guidance, knowledge and truth that we needed to know. Thanks again for your assistance with our home's inspection.
- D.K., Gross Ille. MI, January 2015
The knowledge of the field was impressive and in a language I could understand. The tests were described well and executed as explained. The inspection was timely and the results explained by you were understandable. The lab report is typical of a science based industry and would have been somewhat difficult to follow without your explaination. Hopefully I can get my problem resolved. Thanks

He was great. I learned a lot that day. We are not going to get the house he did the inspection on due to the items Matt found. But when I find another hopeful I will be calling on him again...Thanks.
- V.N., December 2014
Matt was extremely professional and friendly. We called him up at the last minute and he rearranged his schedule to accommodate ours. It was truly a blessing to come across someone so studious, effective, humble, and time-efficient. Hand downs he's the guy you want to leave your home inspection in the hands of. It has been a pleasure in knowing such a awesome guy. From my family to yours thanks

- J.F., Farmington hills MI, October 2014
Thank you Matt for doing our inspection. We thought you did a great job. As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect. We appreciated your honesty and thought you were very thorough with your work. We also appreciated you taking the time to answer all our questions and concerns.
- D.S., Plymouth MI, September 2014
I was very pleased with all the help Matt provided to me and the potential contractors I was considering. Feedback for the future is perhaps clarify up front that an inspection will be needed before and after that the homeowner is responsible for. I say this because friends in similar situations knew enough to have it included in the remediation company's cost (the second inspection). I was too upset to think clearly while I was gathering information and did not consider this cost up front. But the bottom line is that I was very pleased with the service, and Matt's help in getting my job completed. Thank you!
- G.P., Naples MI, September 2014
Thanks for all your help and answering every single one of my myriad of questions!
- J.A., September 2014
I had an excellent experience with Matt. He was thorough in the inspection and checked with me repeatedly throughout the entire time to see if I had questions. He made certain I understood any issues he viewed that needed attention and provided a time frame to consider. I would strongly recommend him to anyone I know who needs to have an inspection on a home they are considering buying.

Very thorough, explained what he found as he went along, invited me to contact him in the future with any questions/advice I may have or need. I felt comfortable with him and confident of his ability. His report was concise, informative, and detailed, and easy to understand what's needed to bring the condo up to standard. I would definitely recommend him to anyone searching for an inspector. Trish Reeb
