Mr. Manock did an outstanding job performing our home inspection. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, very friendly and went above and beyond what is required of a home inspection and took the time to fully answer all of our questions in a way that everyone could understand, even if you are new to buying a home. It was very apparent that he has many years of experience under his belt and my wife and I would HIGHLY recommend his services and if ever needed, we will definitely call him in the future!! We had a great experience!!

As a first time home buyer I was very nervous going into my home inspection (I had just watched a marathon on TV about Home Inspections…BAD IDEA!) but Craig really put my nerves at ease. He was very professional and took the time to explain to me exactly what he was doing and what he was looking for. I would definitely recommend Northern States Inspection.

But aren't all Home Inspectors the same?

You are making one of the largest investments in your life. Choosing the wrong Home Inspector can be a very costly mistake. What happens when you move in and then get stuck with post closing costs because the Home Inspector you hired didn't have the proper training or experience? What happens 2-3 years from now and you have problems? Is your inspector still going to be around to answer your questions? 

What you need is a home inspector that has your best interests at heart. You need someone who has the experience to find the problems and a proven and professional method to present the problems to you in an understandable way. A way that makes sense to you and does not scare you. You also need an inspector that will be there for you after you move in. Someone you can call with questions and get an unbiased answer. I always tell my clients that when you hire me you are my customer for life. Don't settle for less.

When calling for a home inspection Craig was the 2nd to the last call I made out of a dozen and after a few moments with him on the phone I knew this was the inspector for me. His easy going demeanor and the way he described his services we made an appointment. It was only a 2 day wait and he did a through job that I was confident in, not only pointing out what a buyer needs to know but how any problem could be remedied. I was impressed with his knowledge and his personable way of treating us. He left no stone unturned or corner unchecked. We could tell we weren’t just clients or a pay check. I would recommend Craig to anyone buying any property. I don’t think they’d be sorry.

Having looked at a number of homes in our recent home buying experience, we found having Craig Manock of Northern States Inspection to be an extremely valuable asset. While we were reasonably confident in our inspection of the property we chose, Craig was able to point out some concerns that we had totally overlooked in our home search. The explanation of the inspection and issues pointed out during the walk through inspection was very helpful, educational, and thorough as was the inspection report provided by Craig. We would not hesitate to recommend Northern States Inspection to other homebuyers.
