Setting the Standard in Northern Wisconsin Home Inspections

Meet Your Inspector

Since graduating college, I spent about 16 years working as a technician, and the last 14 years in a manufacturing leadership position. Some of my years as a tech involved quality control, report delivery, and feedback to builders and designers, so I already know plenty about discussing complex topics. Since the manufacturing company I worked for was very people-centric, with a heavy focus on customer satisfaction, I gained years of insight into how to best serve you.

If you're planning on buying or selling a home, then hiring a home inspector could save you thousands of dollars. It will also help you understand the property you want to buy and the possible defects.


Radon is colorless and odorless, and it is extremely carcinogenic. According to the EPA, radon is one of the leading contributors to the development of lung cancer, behind only smoking. For this reason, regular radon testing is key.


Thermal imaging is an advanced & newer technology that inspectors use to get temperature details about a home, and assess how protected against environmental elements the home is.


If left unaddressed, wood-destroying organisms like termites and carpenter ants can cause major structural damage. We look at the structure for conditions that could allow wood-destroying organisms to thrive.

Drone Roof

Inspectors are often limited to inspecting buildings from ground level, whether it’s due to safety concerns or because of height restrictions. A drone allows us to view the entire building when the roof isn't otherwise accessible.

Pool & Spa

A pool inspection should be performed every few months, or whenever there are major structural changes made to the pool. The purpose of a pool inspection is to check the safety of the pool and make sure it meets state regulations.

The Best Modern Report in the Industry​

While Up North Inspections LLC encourages our clients to walk through the home with us, we understand that you may be too busy, and may not have time to do so.

Regardless of whether or not you attend the inspection, we will compile a comprehensive Spectora report, which includes all of the information you need to determine the condition of the home.

We will deliver our report within 24 hours of the conclusion of your home inspection, so that you can quickly access a full overview of our findings – and discuss them with us and your agent.

Home inspections generally take 2 to 4 hours to complete. The duration of a home inspection depends on many factors such as the size of the home, the condition of the home, and the ability to access certain areas of the home (roof, crawl space, attic, etc.).

Although it is not necessary, we do recommend that you attend the inspection so you can ask questions and learn more about the home. You will learn a lot from the inspection report, but we always encourage you to attend!
It is important to note that no house is perfect. At the end of the home inspection process, we will provide a detailed report that describes the physical condition of the property, with images and videos highlighting what may need repair or replacement. The information provided is to allow a potential buyer to make an informed decision about moving forward with the transaction. It is not pass or fail.
