What to Expect

Home or real estate buying and selling can be nerve racking. Let me relieve some of that by inspecting the systems in the home you're buying and selling.

A Closer Look, LLC provides a professional, thorough, friendly inspection experience that is reasonably priced.

How long does it take?

It takes two and a half to three hours for a thorough visual inspection including on-site report creation, printing, emailing and reviewing the report with you in person.

Data is collected on a laptop with cutting edge reporting software. You need not be present during the inspection but it is recommended that you attend the on-site review afterward. The report review typically takes about 30 - 45 minutes.

An eReport is also included and will be emailed to anyone you desire.

What does the inspection include?

  • Site Grounds & Grading
  • Exterior and Structure
  • Roof Components
  • Plumbing Systems
  • Electrical
  • Attic
  • Interior
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchen
  • Basement / Crawlspace
  • Heating System
  • Cooling System
  • Garage

Additional Services

I have partnered with the top radon testing and termite inspection companies so you can also schedule a Radon test or termite inspection during the home inspection. Just let me know when you set your home inspection appointment. A separate check will need to be written for each service.

What Clients
Have To Say. (Yes, these are actual testimonials...)

This is the first home I have bought so you are the first home inspector I have worked with. You are very friendly and we even had a few things in common so we could talk about other things than the house. You had a great sense of humor and you made me feel relaxed. Thank you for making my first experience with this process a great one! I am definitely going to refer you to anyone in need of your services!!

When we moved to Cedar Rapids and purchased our new home, my wife and I decided we wanted to hire an inspector from within our church so we could trust him. We contacted Andrew and were not only pleased that he was trustworthy, but that he was very professional and thorough. Our previous inspector from our first home barely looked at our house compared to the job Andrew did! He produced a full-color, photo-enhanced Inspection Report that blew away my expectations. When I make a purchase this big, I want to make sure there are no hidden surprises. From my experience, Andrew will work extremely hard to uncover any surprises with your future home.

Andrew did our home inspection when we first moved to Cedar Rapids a couple years ago. I had a LOT of questions, not only about the house but the area as well, and he did a great job answering them all and provided us with a very comprehensive inspection report. Thanks Andrew!

Not knowing about A Closer Look previously, we were planning on using a different inspector that we had heard good things about, but they were not available. I was very pleased that our realtor recommended A Closer Look as a second option, and it will now be our first, should we move again. Andrew even came out a second time to double check some items that he was not able to access previously before the prior family moved out. We couldn't be more pleased with the experience.
