Raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I was introduced to various trades as a teenager. I worked for our family-owned construction businesses', which taught me the value of hard work and getting the job done right. My family had high expectations for the work I completed, which helped instill a solid work ethic that I carried into adulthood. It’s something I’ll always be thankful for! After living in various states for career moves, my family landed in Des Moines, Iowa. The need to be closer to family and friends is what brought us home to our beautiful state.
From concrete foundations and driveways, to framing, siding, and roofing homes, I’ve been involved in the construction trade for over fifteen years. Whether that be independent projects, working on my own home, or tackling projects as part of my career, this industry is something I’ve always been passionate about.
The desire to be more flexible and available to my family drove me to create On Point Home Inspection, LLC. It’s the perfect job for my skillset and passion for the industry. With my background and continued education through AHIT (American Home Inspectors Training Institute), On Point Home Inspection, LLC strives to give peace of mind with home buying/selling. We look forward to helping you with your home inspection needs!

A home inspection is a thorough and in-depth visual examination of the structure and operating components of a home. It covers both the inside and the outside of the home, from roof to basement. Home inspections are often done before the purchase of a home.
While completing the inspection, we will inspect readily accessible areas. That means things like your furniture will stay put while we determine how functional the home is. ASHI standards along with our detailed report will help understand the general condition of the house and its components.
Items we inspect:
Need radon testing? Let us know, we’re certified by NRSB (National Radon Safety Board) and can include this in your home inspection. http://www.nrsb.org/

When I contacted Matt, with On Point Home Inspection, he was knowledgeable and prepared about what I needed for Radon testing and Home Inspection. He was prompt and thorough on the day of my home inspection and provided me with a detailed report on the same day. Matt was respectful of the home and made sure to wear shoe covers while in my home. Prior to the inspection Matt reviewed everything he would be doing and when the inspection was complete he took the the time to explain his findings. I would recommend On Point Home Inspection!
