Highlighted Services

Home Inspections

When purchasing a new home, the last thing you want are surprises that require repairs, especially significant ones! Knowing the true condition of the home upfront provides peace of mind when signing on the dotted line.

Septic Inspections

With homes that do not have city-provided sewer service, a properly performing septic system will be a vital feature to know about when deciding to buy the house.


Well Inspections

If you will be moving into a home in the country where city-provided water is not available, the condition that the well is in as well as ensuring the water is healthy is important to know before making a purchase.

Garages & Outbuildings

In addition to knowing the true condition of a home before making a purchase, it is also important to know if there are any issues with a garage and any outbuildings that may be on the property. We can do that, too!

Why your Home Inspection company NEEDS to be NACHI Certified

Surprisingly, Home Inspectors are NOT required to be licensed in the State of Michigan like building contractors and real estate agents are. However, when a NACHI CERTIFIED Home Inspector performs an inspection of your home, you can be confident in its results.  Learn More Here >>>

Client Testimonials

Bob Baur inspected my potential home and was nothing short of professional and understanding of my inexperience. He took time to thoroughly explain what he was doing/inspecting and why EVERY step of the way. Would highly recommend Bob for anyone buying a home in Northern Michigan.

Matthew O.

My inspector was Bob Baur. He did a great job!! I had some questions and he had no problem breaking down the information for me so that I would understand it. I was referred to this company by my realtor. I am very pleased with the quality of work and the price. Thank you, Bob!!
