About Premo Home Inspection Services

A home is probably the largest purchase you will ever make, so it is important to understand the condition of your investment. The standard home inspection from Premo Home Inspection Services is an evaluation of the home’s visible and accessible interior and exterior structure, systems and components. I use the latest in tools and technology to collect data during my home inspections, such as moisture meters, electrical circuit testing devices, and different types of cameras to visually document the problems I’ve identified.

I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can show you important shutoff devices and maintenance items, and to answer any questions you may have. I will inspect all of the following items, when visible and accessible:
Structural Components
Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
Exterior Cladding, including EIFS
Porch & Deck
Attached Garage
Electrical System
Plumbing System
HVAC System
Built-In Appliances
Ceilings, Floors & Walls
I use an iPad and PC loaded with Home Inspector Pro reporting software (the inspection industry’s state-of-the-art program) to document my findings during your inspection. Your easy-to-understand report will include detailed descriptions of the defects I discover, as well as digital photos. Your report will be emailed to you within 48 hours. It will also be stored online using a Cloud service, which enables to you securely access it anytime so that you can download it and email it to third parties at your convenience.


In the last days of 2016 my wife and I purchased a home, built in 1887, in Charlevoix, Michigan. As we live in Colorado, and as my wife had only a few hours to inspect the house - I was unable to even see it - the selection of an inspector became extremely significant, if not downright critical. We chose Chris Premo, 231-330-1525, and we thank our lucky stars for doing so. Chris is a person of the highest possible integrity and he conducts himself in the most professional and businesslike manner. Chris did what he said he was going to do, exactly when he said he would, something that is becoming a little rare these days. Chris is also a Michigan licensed General Contractor with over twenty years of construction experience, which is hugely significant when inspecting a home. Chris is detailed orientated to the extreme and as a result produces a very detailed report the size of a book, filled with photographs, which is at once easy to read and extremely informative. And one more thing, and this is very important, Chris takes a very personal interest in his clients and is helpful in many ways beyond his outstanding inspection services. Chris Premo has our highest possible recommendation. Feel free to call me, personally, if you have any questions.

My wife and I are purchasing our “dream cottage” near Lake Huron, around 200 miles away from our home downstate. We realized we needed a trusted professional in the area who really knows his trade. By phone I interviewed eight inspectors from a list that my realtor provided, spending a few minutes with each while attempting to make the best choice with regards to availability, scope, depth, and first impression. Chris told me that he treats every home inspection as if he is the purchaser and strives to be as thorough as possible. I asked if I could shadow him, and he welcomed me to join him in his task. Together we went over just about everything that could be done in the time allowed, and then some. Covering everything from inoperative duplex outlets to a compromised floor joist issue deep in the crawl space, I felt that I knew more about the house than the previous owner did. Chris also tested the water at the County and checked the septic system which was found to need a new tank. All in all, it was the best money I could ever spend on a major purchasing decision. I wholeheartedly recommend Chris to anyone who desires a hard-working, personable professional to perform a top notch inspection. I’ve since contacted Chris a few times and he is always cheerfully willing to take my calls even though our official business is complete. Two thumbs up!

Mr. Premo is the man to add to your list of professional, courteous, thorough, and timely. Mr. Premo inspected a home we are about to purchase from top to bottom, inside, outside and under. Brought his mechanic to test & inspect the generator and other mechanical details. Affordable and the report is unlike any others I have seen. Detailed description with photo's. 5 out 5 stars. He came back a second time to detail the septic & drain field to satisfy the lender. Chris, you can use my name & number because I trusted you with our new adventure in life.
Chris came out tonight to look at a suspected mold problem. He identified the suspect as black paint, which was a great relief to hear. He then investigated a window seal case and came up with a good solution. He further identified a device that signals us when the heat gets too low, and provided good information on dehumidifiers.

Chris could not have been more helpful, which we deeply appreciate. Thank you for recommending him.
Premo Home Inspection Services did an outstanding job for us. We were very pleased with the thoroughness of the job Chris Premo did and the subsequent report. I was present during the inspection and Chris was very detailed in explaining what and why he was checking certain things. When I had questions he was quick to show or explain to me what I needed to know. Our inspection was on a Friday and Chris had a complete inspection emailed to me by the next day. When we ran into the need for a well water test from a third party, Premo home Inspections was happy to to help us out. We were extremely pleased with Premo Home Inspection Services and would highly recommend them to you for all of your home inspection needs.

My wife and I just recently relocated to the area from out of state. When we were purchasing our new home and needed a home inspection, I wanted to do business with a highly qualified inspector that lived, worked and was respected in our community. Chris Premo and Premo Home Inspections Services fit that bill. I liked the fact that Chris is a small operation, and that he “actually” does the inspection himself. The technology he uses is cutting edge and I was very impressed with the attention to detail that Chris himself put into the reports. He was very thorough and offered insight and suggestions of preventative measures to insure that our home remains safe and structurally sound for years to come.

I cannot thank Chris enough for being the professional that he is. When I purchased my first home in 2015 I found a great deal on a foreclosure. Due to issues at the bank the home was not dewinterized in the timeline they had promised and Chris was more than accommodating with a last minute calculation. This continued for 2 weeks with us scheduling appointments and having to cancel last minute. Chris was always understanding and patient. When the home inspection occurred I was truly impressed with how thorough the inspection was. Chris provided us with a detailed document, pictures of all things good & bad, additional information on future maintenance and repair plans and he did all of this in a span of 24 hours. I couldn’t believe at the level of detail provided and how quickly it turned around. My next home will undoubtedly be inspected by Chris and anyone that asks me for a recommendation will hear the same.
