Home Inspections are Our Specialty
The home inspection we provide is very thorough and will usually take from two-to-four hours to conduct. After the inspection is complete, a comprehensive report and color photos are printed out detailing the findings, and this is provided onsite at the time of the inspection before the home inspector leaves. We welcome all questions, even days or weeks after the inspection has been completed.
Our years of experience throughout North and Central Ohio gives us the knowledge to inspect homes of all types, sizes, and ages. We have extensive experience in homes built near the lake, century homes, slate roof properties, older larger homes, and new builds.
We are a full-service professional home inspection team—this means that in addition to home and commercial building inspections 7 days a week and some evenings, we also can provide:
- Mold Inspection and Testing
- Radon Testing
- Well Testing and Assessment
- Septic Tank Inspections and Testing
- Wood Destroying Insect Inspection (WDI)
- ***Sewer Scope*** We are one of the few inspectors in the area qualified and licensed to perform sewer inspection services
- A full sewer line replacement costs between $3,000 and $25,000 depending on the distance from street to home according to Home Advisor.com
- Sewer scoping can determine if there are roots or debris build up within the sewer line. They can see if there is separation in the line letting waste enter your yard. This can show collapsed/crushed piping which can indicate if repairs or replacement needs to occur. Click here to view our video and learn more.

These are a few of the comments that we have received from real estate professionals:
“As an agent I appreciate the skills and professionalism expressed during the inspection. Having said that those are things shown by a number of different inspectors I have worked with in the past. The thing that really stood out and impressed me was the people skills shown by Neil Clark and Mark Hershberger to accompany their knowledge of homes. They did a great job with the inspections I have seen and did not scare the clients over minor details. Even with larger issues that were revealed through the inspection they calmly reassured the buyer that this issue would be properly dealt with. I would highly recommend Pillar to Post.”
“There are 2 inspectors and it takes less time. You are able to do termite, septic, and well all at the same time. The knowledge of the inspectors is great and the service to my clients is excellent before, during and after the inspection. I like how professional the inspectors are, how professional the reports look and how quickly the reports are available. The perfect home inspection company.”
