Home Inspections

Welcome to Inspect Des Moines, LLC.  We offer Certified Home Inspections,

Radon Measurement, and Licensed Architectural Service to home owners throughout

the greater Des Moines area. We are the preferred home inspector for first time home buyers

because we provide hands-on, on site training and maintenance tips.

With affordable prices and credentials that cannot be matched,

allow us to provide you with the highest quality home inspection in Central Iowa!

Radon Measurement

According to the EPA, Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. The entire state of Iowa is in Zone 1 of the EPA Radon map which means we are at the highest risk. It is a tasteless, odorless, colorless gas that cannot be detected without special equipment. Allow us to perform a 48 hour radon test with any home inspection and assess whether or not you may be at risk. 

Home Inspections

Our primary goal is to provide you with a thorough home inspection, on-site training and a detailed report that most accurately and precisely describes the condition of the property’s vital components and operating systems. With experience as a licensed architect and certified home inspector, we offer you one of the best home inspection anyone can find in the Des Moines area.

Design Services

We offer design services in addition to home inspections. Many homes in the Des Moines area have unfinished basements. For a flat fee, we work with you to design the basement of your dreams.  Detailed construction drawings and 3D renderings will be provided to suit your exact wants and needs. With affordable prices and a keen eye for detail, let’s make your dreams become a reality.

    review rating 5  Paul was super thorough during the inspection. Our realtor was there for the entire walk-thru and noted that it was one of the most comprehensive inspections he has seen. Also had a great understanding of the severity of problems when they did come up. Didn't just point out problems, discussed why it was a problem and options to fix it.

    review rating 5  We had Inspect Des Moines do some architectural design work for a basement remodel project and couldn't be more pleased. There work was professional, thorough, and beautiful designed. Paul addressed EVERY design question and provided us with an amazingly functional guest suite design incorporating a full kitchen, bath, bedroom, and living/media room utilizing the latest technology. He walked us through unseen issues with our original design ideas and gently pointed us to solutions that will work long-term. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    review rating 5  Paul is a great guy, easy to work with and very knowledgeable. It was fascinating to follow him around and let him teach us about what he was looking for, and how we could remedy some of the things he was finding. He answered every question we asked, and even more that we hadn't even thought to ask.

    review rating 5  Extremely thorough and very easy to work with. I was of course nervous buying a home and having something getting missed as I've owned a home and been through this process before and things were absolutely missed. However, the extent of the inspection provided was above and beyond my previous experience with other home inspectors. I presumed he would come in and be just like the rest and was incredibly happy with how wrong I was. Paul was very friendly, worked with me and listened to my concerns as well as my realtors. An extremely detailed report was delivered after inspecting the home for several hours. If you do not wish to waste your money on a half/half inspection, this is the company you want.

    review rating 5  What a great experience! Being a first time homebuyer and purchasing a 95 year old house, I was very concerned about potential issues that could arise in the home. Paul put my mind at ease! He was extremely thorough in his inspection of the entire house, and gave me plenty of information about the history and current state of the house. I will definitely be holding on to his report for years to come so I can reference his many FYI's. He was quick to get my inspection scheduled and was very easy to get along with. My full inspection report was emailed to me within hours! By giving me a heads up about potential issues I may need to fix, but assuring me that the house is in great condition, I'm more than ready to close on my first home! Thanks so much for all of your help, Paul!
