About Us

, ,   

 

We are a locally owned/operated residential home inspection company; serving property buyers, sellers and owners in the Madison area and Southern Wisconsin. With 38 years of construction experience, we offer objective, thorough inspections of homes, condos, townhouses and multi units.   Each inspection includes a pdf format detailed report with free thermal imaging and if requested, a radon test as an add-on service.   (for additional service details, see below)

OUR INSPECTIONS COVER THE FOLLOWING EXTERIOR COMPONENTS:
• Roof, chimney, flashing and valleys
• Siding, trim and windows
• Landscaping/grading
• Gutters and downspouts
• Driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks and porches
• Air conditioner compressor

A home inspection is for your security and peace of mind. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, knowing its condition guarantees you a fair and smooth transaction, because you may not know everything you should about the condition of the roof, chimneys, siding and trim, attic ventilation, electrical wiring, plumbing, furnace, air conditioner,  or a great number of other items in the home. Your HOME INSPECTION is a thorough, in-depth visual examination of the structure and operating components of the home performed by trained professionals. A trained inspector will inspect your home and you are encouraged to follow them for a step by step analysis of your home. Safety is our #1 priority! When the inspection is over, the inspector will prepare a PDF inspection report using HIP software which includes table of contents, photographs, links, glossary, helpful maintenance tips and much more.  In addition, we offer RecallChek free of charge with our reports.   RecallChek is a recall reporting service for home appliances, water heaters, furnaces and air conditioners. Utilizing make and model numbers, Recallchek identifies recalled appliances in about 1 in every 10 homes submitted – all of which are eligible for free, in-home repairs performed by the manufacturer.  Wolf Home Inspection takes pride in every inspection we perform.   We are highly trained, knowledgeable, professional and certified as well as fully insured and bonded.  HOME INSPECTION… a wise decision whether you’re buying, selling or simply preserving the value of your home.
