Great Lakes Home & Property Inspections
Finding a Michigan home inspector can be just as stressful as finding the home of your dreams, especially since the state of Michigan has no governing body or licensing to oversee the home inspection industry. So how do you know your inspector is really qualified? Ask these important questions.
What Experience Do You Have In Building Construction?
Hands on work experience is a key element in learning the building process and the problems that can be encountered through each phase of construction. 22 years in residential and commercial construction has given me the experience and knowledge it takes to recognize defects, safety issue's and systems and components that have failed or about to fail.

Do You Perform Michigan Home Inspections Full Time
This is an important question to ask any inspector you are interviewing. The inspector you choose should do inspections full time, and here's why. Many horror stories have surfaced from clients who hired a part time inspector who were told during the inspection that a major issue was found. The inspector would disclose that they were also a contractor and could perform the repairs. This is frown against by the inspection profession due to a conflict of interested. Most inspection associations have included language in there standards of practice, which strictly prohibits this behavior. If your inspector discloses they are a contractor and indicate they can repair your home, an immediate red flag should be raised. Great Lakes Home & Property Inspections adheres to all rules and regulations governed by the Certified Master Inspector board and National Association of Certified Home Inspectors. Residential and commercial inspections is our only business in Michigan.
