Home Inspection: Interior Only

An interior only home inspection is the perfect choice for buyers, sellers and owners of condo or apartment style units for which there is a homeowners association (HOA) responsible for exterior maintenance and repairs. Interior only home inspections can also be a useful tool for people who are buying a distressed property with plans of exterior repairs.

Home inspections performed by Noble Inspections are the most comprehensive interior inspection available in southeast Wisconsin. I meet and then far exceed the standards that dictate what items a home inspector is required to inspect and comment on in the state of Wisconsin. I look forward to working with you.
