 Inspectec is a locally owned and operated inspection company based in northeast Ohio.  Your home is a big investment, so we take property inspections seriously, utilizing state of the art testing equipment, infrared sensors, combustion gas and CO detectors, microwave leak detectors, etc. and we always keep our clients best interests first.  We will inform you of the properties condition and what it means to you in making your decision. This information is key, to negotiate needed repairs before you buy, or to understand just what conditions are present.  We work hard and continually strive to exceed our competitor’s services and pricing, giving you the best property inspection for your money.  And, based on the feedback we receive, we are!    (Note: We "DO NOT" do the typical and unfortunately common "minimum standards" or "checklist type" of reports like many companies do.   Ohio has no "inspection standards" so unfortunately it is "buyer beware").    


 Inspectec is owned and operated by Richard Sumen.  As a board certified CMI (certified master inspector),  Richard is the lead inspector and trains / oversees all *authorized Inspectec inspectors.  CMI certification is only given to the industries most experienced inspectors. As of this update, only 17 CMIs are present / certified, in the state of Ohio.
*Authorized inspectors are independent inspectors that are "approved to our high standards" and work in conjunction with Inspectec.


  Our reports are custom written and easy to read.  We never use generic "On Site" or "Off the Shelf" type reports that are so popular with many of our competitors, but may lack important information.   Our property reports include digital photographs of the homes main components and/or problems.  They are detailed & informative, giving you ALL the information you need about the property you are buying or selling.  Reports may also include additional information about unique components the home may have such as "knob & tube" wiring, CSST gas piping, ect.  Compare our reports with ANY other inspection company, you'll see the difference.   Reports are written and usually delivered within 12 -24 hrs via, a PDF file, USPS mail, or hand delivery.
