My goal is to offer a low stress inspection for my client, provide a fresh look at a home or building, encourage my client’s participation, and describe in detail the issues and potential issues detected and observed.

I can make recommendations when needed and offer suggestions on how to resolve issues.

I utilize a High-Resolution Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera in addition to Combustible Gas and Carbon Monoxide detectors. Also, I have Sun Nuclear 1028 and 1030 Electronic Radon Monitors that take hourly readings of the radon levels and documents the averaged results in a four-page report with an easy-to-understand graph chart. 

It is my desire to provide the Best Quality Service to All Parties Involved.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

{Cliff did an outstanding job inspecting a home that I was in escrow on, there were multiple issues and he made sure I was fully informed. Priceless service. I recommend him very highly.
Marianne Brenna

{Cliff is nothing short of awesome. Extremely thorough (can't emphasize that enough). Took lots of time to bring me through the house as part of the inspection, made absolutely sure I understood everything. Found many things that I don't believe other inspectors would have necessarily found. Helped me prioritize the things to worry about over those to not, and ultimately (indirectly) contributed to the fundamental decisions about the house. Very friendly. Can't recommend him enough.

{Cliff did a fantastic job! Extremely thorough and a very good turnaround time. We had a tight deadline, and Cliff was a Godsend. He is great at returning calls promptly & answering any questions that come up. He spent a lot of time meeting with us at the property once the inspection was complete to go over everything. I would highly recommend Cliff for your inspection needs!

{Some home inspectors may offer a questionable experience; Quality Inspection Service provides a thorough home inspection, with ethics, balance and fairness intact. Cliff is knowledgeable, informative, honest and responsive! Cliff offers a personalized approach, leaving his clients feeling like their details are something more than just a checked box on a computer screen. Thanks again, QIS!

{Cliff Hutchins, owner of Quality Inspection Service, inspected 2 houses for us this past summer. He is very conscientious, competent, thorough, honest, and reliable. The thoroughness with which he inspects a house is unmatched. He probably saved us from spending several hundred (if not a few thousand) dollars on the first house we had inspected. He definitely looks beyond the surface, ferrets out problem areas, and offers suggestions for making corrections. He produces a very detailed report complete with pictures and all at a reasonable price. We highly recommend his services!
Carolyn Brown

{To whom concerned, I just finished purchasing a piece of property in Bayfield Co. Cliff Hutchins was highly recommended as a home inspector. I wanted to express my complete satisfaction in doing business with him. He was easy to get a hold of, courteous, informative and prepared to do the inspection in 1 week. He was there promptly when he said he would be.
