Enjoy Peace of Mind…

With a great Home Inspection Report.

My home inspection reports are written in plain english, and extremely thorough, with pictures, video and text that clearly outline the issues, while giving you options for corrections.

I inspect over 1,600 different components during an average Kansas City home inspection!

With all the information at your fingertips, it’s easy to create repair lists that both you and your agent will love!

Certified and Insured

I carry both E&O insurance, with Liability coverage, so you can rest easy knowing you are in good hands.

As a member of InterNACHI – the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors – I perform all my inspections to their rigorous standards, and I’m licensed in both Missouri and Kansas for Pest Inspections.

I am also certified to perform Radon Measurement tests in Kansas City, Independence, and other surrounding Missouri cities.

Home Inspection Services

All my services are priced individually, or you can save some money and buy one of the packages below…

Home Inspection only:  $350.00

No frills inspection, but still covers over 1,600 components.  This price is based on a home that is less than 3,000 square feet, and is less than 50 years old.  Simply a must when purchasing a home.

WDO Inspection only:  $75.00

Also called a Termite Inspection, but I search for much more than termites.

Radon Measurement only:  $100.00

Radon is a gas that seeps through the ground and into homes via cracks and other small openings.

Home Inspection + WDO Inspection:  $400.00

My most popular home inspection package!  Save $25.00 on purchasing seperate.

Home Inspection + WDO + Radon:  $475.00

Cover the major three, all with one low price.

Investor Inspection + WDO:  $275.00   

All the above, but the all important WDO inspection is included.

Investor Walkthrough with Pictures:  $150.00   

Especially for out of town buyers!  I will walk the property and take copious amounts of pictures.  Then host them for you to see.

    Rod Collins is an excellent home inspector. I’m a Realtor and have recommended Rod consistently to my clients for several years now. I have so much confidence in his work that we used him to inspect our new house and had a pre-inspection done prior to selling the old house. I have never had a negative comment and my clients regularly tell me they have been very pleased. Many have told me, “we appreciated how thorough Rod was” and “he’s a great guy and explained things to us so we knew what needed to be done”. Rod has experience as a builder so he has a keen knowledge of what to look for and explains in detail what items are maintenance issues or what needs addressed as soon as possible. As long as Rod is available to do inspections for my clients, I’ll recommend and use him.
