Welcome to On Point Inspections
Thank you for visiting our website!
I welcome the opportunity to help with your home purchase, selling, safety or peace of mind goals. Whether your home is a cottage or a castle, I offer unparalleled service and reliable information backed by decades of experience.
I bring over 24 years of home inspection, real estate and construction experience when I inspect your home. Prior to home inspecting, I worked with general contracting firms on new custom homes and luxury condominiums. I have experience with developers and especially enjoyed working on an equestrian community. I’ve completed numerous whole house remodels and, my personal favorite, historic home preservations. While in military service, I worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the world’s largest public construction, engineering and design agency.
I take pride in being a trusted resource. The majority of my business comes from word of mouth referrals. Buying, selling or simply questions about your current home, the details and advice provided will help you make sound decisions.

Additional Inspection Services & Certifications
Radon Gas Testing
High levels of radon gas are found in 25% of Michigan homes. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer. In the U.S., over 21,000 people per year die from high levels of radon. The Surgeon General and EPA recommend radon testing in every home.
Neighborhood Environmental Report
Find out what has happened environmentally in the area surrounding your home. The report shows locations of hazardous leaks, spills, toxic releases and other environmentally dangerous sites that may impact health and the value of your property.
Air Quality Assessment
Advancement in technology now allows us to assess air quality onsite with immediate results. This is a cost effective way to measure various airborne factors that may impact health and expensive repairs. The assessment can also help with pinpointing areas of suspected mold in your home.
Mold is often hidden behind walls, under carpets, in ductwork and other areas of your home. We provide several ways to test for mold. All evaluation methods involve collecting samples, laboratory analysis, and further examination of conditions and systems in and around your home.
Whole Home Infrared Inspections
Infrared Thermal Surveys involve an in-depth, foot-by-foot investigation of your home. Experience and training allow us to interpret what the camera is showing. Moisture intrusion, air leaks, damaged building material, hidden areas of mold and overheating electrical components are often uncovered.
The VA wood destroying Inspect reports are required for all Veterans Administration loans in our market. Termites and powder post beetles are found in Michigan. All home buyers should consider a WDI inspection.
Move In Certified
Buyers have confidence to pay more for a Seller’s home that is Pre-Inspected and Move-In Certified. This allows the Seller to address deficiencies in advance saving off-market time once under contract. Sellers have more control to negotiate repairs upfront along with the purchase price.
We offer testing for those interested in investigating public or private well water quality. The presence of such things as total coliform bacteria, E-coli, nitrates, nitrites, lead, arsenic, turbidity, and sodium can be analyzed.
At the 11th month of new home ownership you’ll notify your builder of deficiencies. This is normally the last chance before most repair responsibility shifts. These inspections can pay for themselves saving you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
We inspect multi-unit buildings with up to 4 units. If you are thinking of buying an investment property there is often a fair amount of costly deferred maintenance. The value of the building can be grossly affected by needed repairs.
