Welcome to our site.

      ur mission is to protect you and provide you with a home inspection that will allow you to make an informed decision regarding your new home purchase. With an eye on safety and function, we will help you avoid buying a money pit, point out critical repairs, and educate you on how your house works.

    ou can certainly get a cheaper home inspection. But when you move in and the lights or the dishwasher or one of the myriad of other home systems doesn't work, what are you going to do?  A call to your home inspector will reveal this stock answer, "Well, it worked when I inspected it".

   am Jim Weidner and I'm pleased to meet you. My years as a home inspector were proceeded by a career home remodeler. I specialized in "gut and rebuilds" which gave me an first-hand knowledge of all the different systems that make a house work.  It is this depth of knowledge that I bring to your home inspection.

As a member of InterNACHI I follow their Standards of Practice. What this means for you,  is that you can rest assured that during a home inspection I will be following the best industry practices and inspecting a standardized list of items in your home in a systematic way. You can see the standards for yourself here.

I approch Home Inspections with the professionalism you expect, but also with pleasure. I enjoy what I do.  Every house is different and its own unique issues. What this means for you is, I take the time to analyze problems and sometimes research issues while other inspectors will tell  you to seek further evaluation elsewhere. 

I am a member of  to two of the best associations a home inspector can belong to. InterNACHI (the International Association of Home Inspectors) and MAHI (Midwest Association of Home Inspectors. One is local, one is international. What this means to you, is I have access to a huge brain trust. These organizations provide me with excellent continuing education and access to thousands of fellow members available for answers or advice on unusual or difficult to diagnose problems.
