With Truestar Home Inspections, you are choosing a company with considerable experience and expertise. We have demonstrated our competence over thousands of home inspections, and take great pride in going beyond our clients' expectations. With Tom's many years of experience in home inspection, home construction, and home remodeling, Truestar Home Inspections offers a unique skill set and knowledge base to help ensure that you make the best decision for you and your family.

    Our home inspection experience is inclusive. We encourage you to join us during the home inspection, and to ask questions as you go. Having you with us on the home inspection also gives us an opportunity to provide you with tips on home care and maintenance. For instance, you can learn how to change the furnace filter, turn off the water, gas, and electricity in an emergency.

    A home inspection is valuable, but unless the experience is well-documented, most people won't remember all the important details. That's why we provide a comprehensive written home inspection report to serve as your guide for as long as you own the home. It is designed to not only meet, but to exceed the standards of practice of our professional association. It describes the house components and their condition, and provides insight into what improvements will be necessary, and when.

    Our home inspection report can also help you set up a home maintenance program to take care of one of the most significant investments most people make. Our goal is to ensure that you can live safely, comfortably, and efficiently in your new home.

    And our annual check-up inspection is available to help keep track of the performance of the many major systems in your home.

  • We were very pleased with the home inspection performed by Tom Pape of Truestar Home Inspection Services. Mr. Pape was flexible with his time and accommodated our request for the inspection in a timely and convenient schedule. This was important as it it impacted our decision to buy the house. Mr. Pape was not intrusive when fulfilling the tasks of the inspection. He left the areas of the house he inspected neat and clean. I greatly appreciated the thoroughness of his inspection. He patiently explained all the most important systems of our home. For example, he explained and used excellent graphics, demonstrating how the roof drain pipes need to be extended in order to minimize the possibility of water leakage into the basement. He provided a summary of the condition of each system, i.e., heating system, and any aspects that should be fixed or changed. The summary of each system permitted us to evaluate whether or not to purchase the house as it gave a good indication of the condition, and costs that may be incurred. The Home Inspection Report was extensive, in fact, it is over 80 pages. The graphic images and pictures certainly made the explanation much clearer. I learned a lot from Mr. Pape. His patient, knowledgeable, and thorough evaluation of the house made our decision to purchase much clearer. I would recommend Mr. Pape of Truestar Home Inspection Services.
