Experienced Inspections

When purchasing a homes it's all about location, location, location. When inspecting a home it's all about experience, experience, experience. With 25 years of experience, John Simler and his team of professionals are the ones to call. In addition to being a Registered Architect, John was a founding member of the Ohio chapter of ASHI, the industry's premiere professional organization. Since starting the business in 1983, John and his team have performed over eleven thousand inspections. In that time, they have inspected small bungalows to sprawling estates, century homes to new construction, farm homes to city townhouses, and everything else in between. Simler Inspections will professionally handle your inspection needs.

Superior Reporting

Our reporting system is "state of the art". Using our laptop computers and digital cameras, the report contains easy to understand text/checklist information, and includes an unlimited number of color photos. Someone once said, "a photo is worth a thousand words". The photos in the report provide an extremely helpful visual of what the text is describing. This is especially important for those who cannot attend the inspection. The reports and photos are emailed within 24 hours. View a sample »
