Welcome to the new Safeguard Home Inspection Website. As a home inspector, I take home inspections very seriously and you should too. Gone are the days when your uncle or your dad would walk through your intended purchase and give you their opinion about how to wallpaper and paint those pesky areas that look old or worn. Home inspectors are held to a higher standard in the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin is one of a handful of states that requires a state issued license to conduct paid home inspections. Wisconsin home inspectors are required to pass a national and state test prior to receiving licensing in our state, along with a requirement of 40 hrs. of ongoing education to renew a home inspection license.
As a home inspector in the Green Bay area, and a lifelong resident of Northeast Wisconsin, it is important to understand how our local weather and temperature differences affect the components of a home. Extreme hot and cold temperatures, along with wind, rain and snow, are constantly testing the structure and and exterior systems of a home. Small gaps and exposed wood framing materials are vulnerable to the elements. A thorough home inspection will identify areas that are in need of improvement, repair, or replacement. Interior air quality and efficiency are directly affected by the condition of the exterior components. Excess moisture and air infiltration drive up heating and cooling costs, and reduce the comfort levels in the home.
We approach every home inspection with the understanding that our customers have varying degrees of knowledge about the systems of a home, and take extra time, if necessary, to ensure that you understand the condition of all aspects of the interior and exterior components. Safeguard Home Inspection utilizes the latest technology to provide it's customers with assurance that we have left no stone un-turned. Thermal imaging, Co detector, gas leak detectors, and moisture meters are just a few of the tools that are used in a typical Green Bay home inspection, but the most important tools that a home inspector can bring to an inspection is his/her own curiosity and willingness to investigate and provide answers to common, and not so common problems. I conduct every home inspection as if it was for my own family, and for that reason, you will get my best effort.
