Do you want to know about the conditions of major systems in a house to make an informed purchasing decision? A professional home inspector provides an objective visual examination of the condition of a home. Because this is such an important step in making a smart financial investment in a new home, we recommend choosing wisely.

Tip 1: Find a Home Inspector That Works for You

Many home shoppers in Marathon County, Wisconsin get a list of inspectors from their real estate agents. Because these agents are financially motivated to have the home sale go through without a hitch, the home inspectors might have a bias and be less likely to be thorough.

Purchasing a new home in Central Wisconsin is a very big decision, and it is important to find an independent home inspector that is really working for you. Inspect It Right Home Inspections works for you! We are a veteran-owned, state and nationally-licensed inspection company that serves Wausau, Rothschild, Mosinee, Kronenwetter, Stevens Point, Merrill, and Weston, Wisconsin.

Tip 2: Find an Inspector That Allows You To Join The Inspection

You will own this new home for years or even decades. The information from the home inspector might enable you to perform effective preventative maintenance or to properly budget for future repairs. Getting as much information from your inspector as possible will best allow you to do this.

All of the major systems typically used within a home are tested to verify proper operation or installation. This includes the roof and components, the ventilation system, the home structure, heating and cooling equipment, the wiring, the plumbing system, and even home drainage.

Some inspectors will allow people to join the inspection while others will only meet afterward with the client. Inspect It Right Home Inspections encourages customers to join us on the inspection to gain the most useful information possible. At the end of every inspection, we provide you with the most comprehensive and in-depth report in the industry.

Our inspection reports average over 30 pages and include pictures of issues for clarification, diagrams, maintenance tips, etc. See a sample of our reporting here.  We also provide you with a maintenance manual of the home to help keep your new house in great shape.

  • Son of my client!

    At a recent inspection I had a young boy follow me around.  As I was going through the inspection I was explaining to him what I was doing, looking for and he even helped in some parts.  As young kids often do they lose interest and find the closest toy to play with.  At the end of the inspection he went to his mom and said "I want to do what he does when I grow up"  :-)
