A bit about our History


1989 – 1994 Amer-The Home Inspector.

I started with  a “Licensing” arrangement through American Technology Systems, Inc. out of Portland Oregon, which eventually became World Inspection Network.  The Licensing agreement was to use their software to print out professional looking reports.  My name at their recommendation used a line drawing of a home inspector that resembled “The Michelin Tire Man” rather chubby. It gave a personal tough to it but not as Professional as I liked.

During this time while honing my skills, I was an original member of The Society of Professional Property Inspectors serving as a Board Member, became a Full Member of ASHI and a founding member of the Great Plains ASHI Chapter and Chapter Officer.

In 1993 I founded the Midwest Inspectors Institute, a training facility for Home Inspectors.

By 1994, I decided that I needed a more Professional Company persona that resulted in a name change.


October 1994, we became American Residential Inspections, Inc. during this time my scope of inspections grew.  Adding to Home Inspections and Termite Inspections, and Radon Screening, I added Code Inspections for both Commercial and Residential construction originally through the International Conference of Building Inspections which evolved into the International Code Council. In 1997 I got involved with EIFS, Exterior Insulation Finish Systems, both for installation and moisture intrusion issues.

This led to Expert witness work for EIFS, Moisture intrusion, and structural defect issues.

Accepted as a designated Expert Witness in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado and Minnesota.

Along the way after several years of writes and rewrites I now offer basic residential Home Inspections that are printed in both English and Spanish, due to the demand for Hispanic Home Buyers to become confident educated home owners.  Commercial Inspection along with Residential Inspections not only in the Leavenworth and Kansas City areas evolved and I found myself inspecting Commercial properties across the United States. In 1997 & 1998 I got a contract to perform Duplex Residential Inspections and Apartment Complex Inspections in 37 States and San Juan.  Comprising 25,000 units within 137 Complexes.  With a lot of assistance from Graduates from the Midwest Inspectors Institute scattered across the country from Anchorage, Alaska to Kew West, Florida we were able to complete the inspections.  Obviously by the turn of the  century I was heavily involved with commercial property Inspections.  By 2010 I had to consider another name change.  With the word “Residential” in the Company name and the online society today, I was missing some commercial opportunities which resulted in the new name.

January 1012 the new identity, Inspect America, LLC.  Today the same professional Residential Home Inspections and  Commercial Property Inspections, with detailed, comprehensive reporting, we strive to inform educate and empower home buyers and sellers with the information needed to make informed  systems.  Our new offering for this year are  Accessibility Inspections.  The populous is aging and so am I my generation is at retirement age and many face the future having to decide what will we do when we can no longer live in our homes.  Assisted living is an option but is it the most desirable. I hear the question more and more often what can I do to live in my home longer?  We now offer Accessibility Inspections, complete with examples, where we can offer recommendations to make your home more livable when have a handicap limiting range of motion or wheelchair bound.  Improvements that allowing you to live in your home longer.
