Gibbs Surette Inspect
About this pro
We have been providing home inspection services in the Indianapolis and surrounding areas since 1976. While no one expects a house to be faultless or without risk, it is valuable for all concerned to be aware of the relative strengths and/or weaknesses of the home's present condition. This is the purpose of our inspection service, and our client's complete satisfaction is our #1 goal. We are professionally trained and licensed home inspectors and are also certified by ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors), as well as InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors). Pride, professionalism, honesty and integrity are among our core values and we strive to make sure every home inspection that we perform is the most thorough in the industry. We guarantee your home inspection experience will be educational, and that the home inspector will communicate his findings with you clearly, and be available to answer questions, not only during the inspection, but at anytime after the home inspection as well. Whether you are a home buyer trying to avoid the money pit, a seller wanting to avoid 11th hour repairs, a homeowner needing to know the current condition/needed repairs of your current home, or even a renter wanting to document the current condition of a property prior to your move in, Gibbs Surette Inspect can help. We have services that cater to each individual need. From new construction to houses that are 100+ years old and everything in between, "we speak house!". What is yours saying?

Q & A
- What types of customers have you worked with?Buyers Inspections for potential home buyers (as part of the real estate transaction), Pre-Listing Inspections for home sellers (helps sellers get their house ready to put on the market and avoid 11th hour repairs), And New Construction / Final Walk Through Inspections are the 3 most common types of inspection we perform for our clients. Each of these types of inspections can also include additional tests for Wood Destroying Insects (Termites, Carpenter Ants, Powder Post Beetle, Carpenter Bees etc.), Radon, Well & Septic certifications, Bacteria testing for well water, and Mold testing.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Don't hire a Home Inspector based off of the cheapest price. Look at an inspectors experience and qualifications. Make sure that they are state licensed and belong to a professional organization such as ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) or NACHI (National Society of Certified Home Inspectors). Review a sample inspection report from the inspector(s) you are considering hiring, you can learn a great deal by reviewing a sample of their work. Most inspectors have a sample available online, or you can request the inspector send you one. Also, look online for customer reviews, comments or feedback about the inspector. These are all more important than how "much does it cost". I have heard more people complain about bad inspections involving the cheap inspector, than I have about the most expensive one. A good quality inspector is going to have no problem keeping his schedule full, and therefore has no need to offer deeply discounted inspections that are well below what his local competitors offer. Most inspectors have special coupons or offers, that's fine...but if you have an inspector who is offering his services for 1/2 price, or $200 less than the other guys, that's a red flag in my opinion.
