Preparing Your House for a Home Inspection: with Debbie Schiller of Amerispec

By Debbie Schiller

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

This is a link to the 25th Anniversary video for AmeriSpec corporate : A little about our Company Our specific franchise in Bloomington was started in 1993 by John (& Barbara) Kaiser. We like to invite and encourage our clients to join in on the entire inspection so that we can Tell them & Show them what we're finding vs. just having them read it in a report. Our goal is education and we deliver our findings in a clear and non-alarming way.

What are the most common areas that fail home inspections?

We are not code compliant in MN since there is no license to be had for Home Inspectors, so "failing" isn't really the right terminology. We meet and exceed the ASHI standards and will make sure to inspect all accessible areas of the home.

What is the best piece of advice you can give someone who is about to have a home inspection?

Best advice is take the time to attend the inspection. There will be common things (i.e. cracks) that we see all of the time and are normal that could be alarming later if you didn't have the opportunity to ask the inspector. It is also a great time to have an expert in your potential new home showing you shut off valves and telling you about seasonal maintenance that you will need to know.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you and your company?

Best to call our office at (952) 854-5110 since we have a live voice answering all of the time (weeknights and weekends). You can also email us at info@amerispechome.com.
