Northwoods Property Inspections knows that a home inspection is a vital part of a home purchase. We believe that home inspections can continue during the COVID-19 outbreak when prudent safety precautions are practiced, and when performing the inspection does not conflict with government orders and recommendations.

We are still performing home inspections for our clients, however, we are enacting precautions to do our part in the fight against the COVID-19 Coronavirus spread. We want to protect our clients, realtor partners, home owners, tenants, and our inspectors.

 

Per the Governor's Emergency Order #12; real estate, appraisal, inspection and title services ARE considered "essential businesses". It is requested that we do our best to avoid in person meetings to the greatest extent possible. During this time we ask that non-essential people do not attend the inspection unless necessary. We know that you, as clients want to attend the inspection, and normally, we highly encourage that, but this is a unique situation and we must follow these orders to help stop the spread. Rest assured that we will continue to provide you with a thorough report and will be more than happy to set up a time with you to review the report over the phone. 

Let’s all do our part, protect ourselves and our loved ones. Please call us if you have any questions or concerns.  715-934-9105
