    Northern Home Inspections LLC
    Mike did a very through job inspecting the house and then went over everything carefully with me. He spent a lot of time and even came back another day because initally he could not access the attic to determine insulation. Again he spent a lot of time and effort making sure I understood his remarks and concerns. He wrote a very detailed inspection report with many photos showing why he made the comments he did in the report. Because of his report and the sellers unwillingness to pay the entire amoutn for the problem areas I had to cancel my purchase agreement. Sure I was out the cost of the inspection but in the long run Mike no doubt saved me a great deal of money and huge headache and heartache!

    SafeGuard Home Inspection
    Went okay but some issues were not discovered. Most notably, a sunroom footing that needed repair, garage door opener that did not work, and sticking patio door. Also, some very minor things were noted in the report, which were of little concern compared to these. Good to point them out I suppose, but not good to miss some more significant things. I did appreciate the willingness to answer some questions via email after reviewing the report. I might hire again but I would shop around first.

    SafeGuard Home Inspection
    10/2015 , we had a home inspection. The inspector missed defects in the brand new roof that was installed by builder, the installation of the roof had 2 chimney flashings never replaced / ice / water shield never added. The 2 flashings leaked rain/ snow into the attic causing all the insulation to get wet, came thru the ceilings , 20% mold growth. Missed the garage furnace not working, Central Air unit hadn't worked in years ( fan came on, condenser was shot) , cold air returns were sealed shut, 10 electrical outlets not working, 2 outside outlets not grounded . The plumbing had leaked under the bar because the plumbing was never sealed causing water to pour into the raised floor/ into all the Sheetrock in the basement causing black mold. We only have 2 livable spaces in our 2900 square foot home. Since purchasing this home, we have over $80,000 in non disclosure / $40,000 in mold remediation . and non of this was caught by the inspector. When we called this inspector back to the home, he said " I stand by my inspection" . We have over 150 pictures/ 5 contractors who cannot believe this wasn't caught by the inspector. Please don't use him, pay a contractor, it's worth every penny! Our 289,000 house is worth 0 because of Steve , we relied on his inspection as the previous owners disclosed nothing. Please beware!!!

    Northern Lights Inspection
    The first home we were interested in purchasing fell through when there were multiple large ticket items found by the inspection that we did not see, followed by the fact that there was radon.  When we found another home we were interested in we used Northern Lights again.  They are very thorough in their work even getting on the roof and checking the flashing and shingles.  inside they test random outlets and lights, make sure the water pressure and drains are working, all the appliances work, heating and cooling are in order, the electrical panels are not overloaded, skylights, windows and doors are all working properly and not leaking.  They even check for excessive heating/cooling leakage with the thermography. Outside they check the drainage around the house to make sure water isn't running towards the home, gutters are installed properly and decks are sturdy and up to code.  We also requested a radon check in our homes which they preform.  When they inspect a home you are purchasing you can meet them at the property and go over any concerns you may have and they will pay special attention to that area to make sure your questions are answered.  The team is very professional, courteous and punctual.  I would be happy to use them again if we ever move again or purchase a seasonal home.

    I-Spect Home Inspection Services
    My wife and I are buying a home, but when it came to inspections we had know idea who to call. I-Spect had a website... That was the deciding criteria, website.  He does have credentials, he's a Duluth fireman and a contractor and that helped ease any initial wariness we had about basically picking a guy off Google.  When I called Brent he was pleasant and flexible with scheduling, but more importantly walked me through the process.  We went ahead and scheduled a time for him to come by the house and do the inspection.
    Brent was all business, but easy to talk to and willing to explain what he was doing and answer any questions I had.  He was punctual and thorough; Heating, water, appliances, electrical, roof, attic, all of this while pointing out important things I would need to know as the new homeowner. Where the gas and water shut-offs were.  Where the furnace switch fuse was located, where the gfi outlet was for the jacuzzi tub.   Basic stuff, but definitely saved time having it all pointed out.  We also took extra time to determine the quality of previous work that had been done and possible remedies, again basic cosmetic stuff, but useful all the same.   
    After the inspection I was able to pay the fee online using a credit card.  He had indicated that he guaranteed digital delivery of his report by the next morning.  I had mine by 7pm that night... and it was extensive with photos and diagrams.  52 pages in all, detailing everything he inspected with notes, recommendations for remedy and timeline.  It is very handy and will definitely be helpful in our final negotiations before buttoning this deal up. 
    All and all a really great experience; I would recommend using I-Spect for any future inspections.

    I-Spect Home Inspection Services
    I'm a licensed plumber and a former licensed contractor, so I know my way around houses. I had looked at the house I was buying 
    multiple times but the bank required a inspection. I called I-Spect and Brent came out and did a inspection. I was very pleased with
    the work, he found some issues with the house that needed to be addressed and they were some things that I missed myself. I would recommend Brent to anyone who wants a honest home inspection.

    SafeGuard Home Inspection
    Mr. Hatcher arrived 30 min. before the inspection to get ready. He shared with me the plan for the inspection. He was very thorough in his process. He had a plan for the inspection. We were done in 2 hours and he had pictures and explanation for each the findings that needed to be fixed. He was very good.

    Northern Lights Inspection
    The guys from Northern Lights were prompt, extremely friendly, professional & very knowledgeable. They explained things to us in a way that we could understand. We received a 27 page detailed report with photos by the end of the same day.  Their report even included "maintenance tips" for us.  We feel very confident moving forward with our purchase knowing they inspected it for us.

    SafeGuard Home Inspection
    Called Steve on the recommendation of a realtor. He explained everything he does as part of the home inspection, answered all my questions.  Scheduled and did the home inspection, even tho my wife and I were unable to be there, which he prefers. Recieved the email and photos, and then the hard copy of the report of home inspection.

    Northern Lights Inspection
    Overall they did an OK job. I wish they would have informed me about the condition of the water heater and furnace and how the windows were in poor shape.
