HELLO, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about Alert Inspection Services LLC.
My name is Todd Moelker. I am the owner of ALERT INSPECTION SERVICES LLC and would like to tell you a little about myself and what qualifies me to be your home inspector. I worked 6 years for a commercial general contractor. During that time I helped build many different types of structures. I worked on everything from grocery stores to large warehouses. After that I worked for 12 years as a residential carpenter, building houses and condominiums. I have been a licensed builder since 1993. During this time I also did some concrete work and drywalling as well as roofing. When I decided to become a home inspector I bought the American Society of Home Inspectors [ASHI] @ HOME STUDY COURSE. This course teaches about each system of the home from roof to foundation. After passing the National Home Inspector's Exam I started working on becoming a member of ASHI and have now been a member of ASHI for over 6 years.
Being a member of the largest, most recognized, home inspection organization in the industry is important. As an ASHI CERTIFIED INSPECTOR I have a code of conduct as well as Standards of Practice that guide how I inspect. The inspection I perform on your home will be done to the highest standards in the industry. To stay on the cutting edge of the home inspection industry ASHI membership also requires 20 hours of continuing education each year.
INSPECTOR BY REVIEW: This is a designation, from the Great Lakes Chapter of ASHI, that I earned in 2009. To earn this designation an inspector must find all the defects found by a team of Master Inspectors and then also pass a technical knowledge test.
As a full service home inspection company I also offer RADON TESTING and WOOD DESTROYING INSECT INSPECTIONS. I hold national certification for radon testing and state certification for wood destroying insect inspections.
I started Alert Inspection Services in 2001 and have performed over 4,005 inspections, [as of the end of 2012], since that time. I refer to my inspection style as solutions based inspecting. What I mean by this is that I make it a point to provide solutions to the defects and problems I find while inspecting. I don't just leave you with a list of what's wrong but give ideas on how most of the defects we find can be remedied. The average inspection will take approximately 3 hours to complete. At the end of the inspection I fill out and print a computer generated report complete with digital photos. When you leave the home after the inspection you have report copies of all the inspections performed. As an added benefit I will also, with your permission, email the report to your Real Estate agent.
Thank You again for taking the time to learn more about Alert Inspection Services. I look forward to the opportunity to take care of your home inspection needs. Please take a moment to read the following testimonial as it summarizes exactly what I strive for as your inspector. [address and names deleted for privacy]
TESTIMONIAL: I just wanted to take a moment and tell you something’s about your home inspector Todd. He did a home inspection for my son at ? address. He was one of the most professional people that I have ever met. I have dealt with the public for several years and Todd went out of his way to be informative and professional. During the entire inspection he was extremely. He showed and explained each step and item to my son and my wife. He explained what he was looking for, what he found and what the reason was. His inspection was very thorough. Because of this my son was very relaxed and a lot more confident in his home purchase. I feel that Todd is a very important and outstanding example of your company. Thanks again for everything and very special thanks to Todd.
