Leading Home Inspection Company​ in Northwest Indiana

Making A Difference​

Our company was founded in 2013 by Michael & Janet Metrakos. Michael is a native Northwest Indiana resident with a desire to help others and has always wanted to operate his own company. From 1996 through 2001 Michael and Janet have built three residential homes together. Being a home inspector is a perfect fit as Michael enjoys helping others while also being an entrepreneur at heart. Janet keeps the communication channels open with our clients starting from the initial call from clients, etc. to schedule the final inspection.
