ASHI Certified Inspector, Jerry Simon                        




Why Me?

I have a lot of experience, more than most.  Since 1993, I've inspected thousands of modern and historic homes.  With that experience, you get a seasoned inspector, one who will find defects that newer inspectors might miss.   An inexperienced inspector could cost you quite a bit of money because if you move into a house full of unknown defects, you'll be stuck with the bill.  

You'll like my reports.

My reports are completely narrative and include pictures of defects - no checklists.  The report describes what I looked at, what was wrong, why it is wrong, and the best way to address the problems.

This Is Important

I'm a certified member of The American Society of Home Inspectors. I follow their strict inspecting standards and adhere to their code of ethics. ASHI is one of the oldest and most respected home inspecting organizations out there. You'll be working with a true professional.


Worried about the roof?

I've earned the designation Master Shingle Applicator (from the CertainTeed Corporation). Whether your roof is new or old, you'll know for sure if it's up to snuff.


Worried about basement seepage?

I used to fix foundations as a sideline.  The last thing you want is a leaking foundation; I know just where to look and what to look for.


Worried about electrical?

Electrical systems are the weak area of most home inspectors.  For me, though, they're one of my specialties. 


You'll appreciate my pricing, too; it's fair and reasonable. Give me a call or a text, tell me about what you're thinking of buying, and I'll give you a quote for a thorough inspection.


 I've seen more.  I know more.  I do more.


You can call or text me, Jerry Simon, at 847-705-6800.
