When You Receive Your Report
The advanced software that UPHI uses results in an inspection report that can be viewed online by you and your realtor within 24-48 hours of the inspection.
Your report can be dozens of pages long, covering hundreds of details of the home. But don’t worry! It is fully searchable, so you’ll be able to find the areas most concerning to you with the click of a mouse. And, we highlight issues of high, medium, and low priority in a special section to help you easily prioritize any repairs that need to be done.
Buyer’s Inspection: What Should You Expect?
You may be asking yourself what you can expect from a home inspection. U.P. Home Inspection, LLC performs each of our home inspections in a manner that meets or exceeds the InterNACHI “Standards of Practice.” These standards are designed to provide a thorough inspection of the safely accessible portions of the home, resulting in a report that details the home’s visible structural and maintenance issues present.
On the day of your inspection, our inspector will need access to the residence. Often the homeowner or realtor will be at the home to let us in, but you are more than welcome to be there also. Home inspections require 2-4 hours to complete depending on the size of the home so be prepared. We take our time and make sure the job is done right.
Having U.P. Home Inspection re-inspect your home after the suggested repairs are made ensures that repairs have been completed to standard. This eliminates surprises from incomplete or shoddy work. Upon revisiting the home we review only the repairs that have been made so the process is much quicker and less costly. When complete, we report back to you as to the quality of the repairs that have been made and whether they meet industry standards. A home re-inspection is an affordable way to add peace of mind to your investment. Contact Rich to schedule a re-inspection today.
The seller’s home inspection performed by U.P. Home Inspection LLC is identical to the buyer’s inspections that we perform. The bonus is that you, the homeowner, can correct issues before you list your home. Showing your buyer that you are as concerned about their investment as they are will put your listing head and shoulders above the rest. You can show your potential buyers your recent home inspection report and the resulting repair records. You can also utilize our re-inspection service which adds another level of assurance for your buyer.

Commercial Building Inspections
Due diligence is critical when purchasing commercial real estate. An inspection by a certified commercial building inspector can help avoid unnecessary financial or safety risks in the buying decision.
Hiring a local commercial property inspector can help shorten transaction times and may reduce travel-related costs for U.P. companies looking to purchase business properties. We travel outside our regular service area for commercial inspections. Contact us for details!
Manufactured Home Foundation & Addition Certifications (HUD Approved)
If you want to secure lending for a manufactured home (MFD home) through HUD (Housing and Urban Development), you will need a foundation/addition certification. Because federal regulations prohibit buying, selling, or leasing MFD homes that do not meet the standards, HUD foundation certification is an essential step in the MFD home buying process.
U.P. Home Inspection LLC works in collaboration with the Michigan engineering firm MFD Home Certifications LLC to provide affordable manufactured home foundation/addition certifications in the U.P. Contact us to learn more.
