Experienced MN Home Inspector

Different Home Inspections

  • Each home is different, however there are common inspection issues found within homes of the same city or same age.
  • Older St. Paul homes will generally have foundation, or electrical issues.
  • Homes built between 1950 - 1975 will tend towards more electric and roof inspection issues. Learn more about electrical grounding of older wiring-
  • Homes that are 20 years - 30 years old will have aging furnaces, air conditioners, and will possibly need re-roofing.
  • Home inspections in cities with a high water table may have basement flooding problems. 
  • Older homes generally have less insulation in the attic and subject to water damage from colder MN weather, and  ice dams. Learn more about MN roof ice dams-.

Radon testing is also available for $119 when added to an inspection. The EPA Radon Zone map outlines MN radon averages per county.

 Victoria -After working as a building inspector for the City of North Branch, MN and Coon Rapids, MN I started Minnesota Building Building Inspections in Cambridge, MN in 2009. We travel all over the Twin Cities area - north, south, east and west! We perform home inspections in East Central Minnesota weekly (Cambridge, Isanti, North Branch...) - that's where we started!

"Before I start every home inspection I remind myself that this home is special to the family that currently lives there,  and that this purchase is a very personal and important decision for you." -Victoria Morris

Mike- A second generation home inspector! Mike has been performing commercial building inspections since the beginning. He is now training to take over our home inspection , and home radon testing division. He can be seen picking up additional inspection details, and writing your report onsite with his cell phone home inspection software!

"I'm always looking for ways to make the inspection process better using the latest technology. My reports are thorough, with extra pictures, and easy to read. I remind myself that this is a very exciting moment in your life! "- Michael
