Wisconsin Residential Home Inspections

We Are Looking Out for You

Choosing your Home Inspector can be one of the most difficult tasks you will do. Every home inspector has their own style, tools, and reporting method to communicate the problems of the home to you. Our philosophy is very different from our competition. We work hard to educate you about your new home. Just ask your Realtor who they would choose to inspect their home or a family member's home. Odds are they will choose 4-Square Home Inspections.

No home is perfect, and I will explain the differences between Significant Defects, Safety Issues, and Normal Maintenance Items with you at your home. I also offer tips and suggestions that will help you maintain your home in the future. Every report is customized for your home with the information you need.

We follow the Standards of Practice of the State of Wisconsin for Home Inspectors. We encourage you to read this document to understand the requirements of Home Inspectors in Wisconsin.

You are welcome and encouraged to attend your inspection. We will review the results of the home inspection with you and answer your questions about your home and your home inspection. We work very hard to exceed our client's expectations!

Price Shopping?

Think about all of the hours you have spent looking for your dream home and you finally found it. Now you need your home inspected. Your home inspector is your advocate and keeps your interests in mind during the inspection. Be sure to look for a knowledgeable home inspector who has the experience to give you their expert opinion on the condition of the home.

Knowledge is extremely important and it does not come cheap for the inspector. Some inspectors may only do the minimums. If you're looking for a cheap inspection and a cheap report, I may not be the inspector for you. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Our clients can attest to this. We offer very competitive pricing.

When you call for a price quote, we will ask you several questions including the square footage and the age of the home. Our price is based on the square footage, age of the home, one furnace, one service panel, one water heater, one air conditioner, one attic space, and one garage. If there are additional items found during the inspection, you can choose to have them inspected at a small additional cost.

Your Home Inspection Report

Compare Reports! Wisconsin does not require a standardized inspection report for consumers. That means each inspector has the ability to provide a report in any format they choose. And they are very different. Be sure to ask for a sample home inspection report so you know what to expect at the end of the inspection.

All of our residential inspection packages include a customized full color home inspection report including pictures that are annotated and embedded within the body and summary of the report. The 20 to 50+ page color-coded report is very easy to read and understand. We've been told by our Clients and Realtors it is the best in Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and Ozaukee counties!

Your home inspection report is delivered within 24 hours (usually the same day) via your secure private account you create on our website for your 24-7 access from anywhere there is an Internet connection.  If you don't have Internet access, other arrangements can be made for delivery of your home inspection report.

Home Inspection Contract

Please take some time to review the Inspection Contract you will be asked to sign before the inspection. If you have any questions about the contract. Please ask!

4-Square Follow-up Support

When you Choose 4-Square Home Inspections, we're available for free telephone consultations for any questions relating to the inspection of the home. Our Premium Home Inspection and our Standard Home Inspection includes one complementary re-inspection of any repair work that may have been performed after the initial inspection and before closing. That is a $75.00 value! Any subsequent inspections will have a minimum trip charge of $75.00

Payment Terms

Payment for services rendered are expected upon the completion of the home inspection and before the report is delivered. Payments can be made either by cash, check or money order. We use PayPal or Intuit Payment Network for Secure Credit Card Transactions. Other payment arrangements can be made in advance of the inspection if necessary.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel within 72 to 24 hours of the start of the inspection window, the cancellation fee is 25% of the quoted price above. If you cancel after 24 hours prior to the start of the inspection window, the cancellation fee is 50% of the quoted price above. We will apply half of the cancellation fee towards a future inspection with us at your choosing.

Why Inspect a Foreclosed Home in Wisconsin?

Unfortunately, there are many more foreclosures on the market than ever. These homes can be very good buys for investors or people purchasing their first home looking for that great deal. However, these homes are also usually sold "as-is" meaning you are also buying all of the problems, too. Foreclosed homes are usually priced well below market value and many people think they can handle anything they may run across and skip the inspection since the mortgage holder (usually the bank) won't repair anything anyway. This can be devastating to people without thousands of dollars in cash reserves to fix serious problems before they can even move in!

We want you to make an informed decision before you buy a foreclosure. To know what it is you may be getting yourself and your family into. Here are some things to consider.
