ER Renovation Knows Inspections

Ethan was raised in the construction industry doing remodels and additions in Marion County. His background in construction and particularly remodeling allows him effectively detect issues other inspectors may not see. When choosing ER Renovation to provide a home inspection, you are choosing an inspector that thoroughly understands a home and all of it’s systems. There is no time or money to waste, so avoid an inspector who may have the head knowledge, but not the background with the technical training of the building and systems aspects. With high standards and equally high values and we would be more than happy to show you how to go about fixing problems that may arise with equity and honesty. We are here to help and serve you.
  • Buyers

    Buying a home is a big process, but we can help make it less intimidating by examining the current state of the home and help you avoid any future issues. ER Inspection ensures a comprehensive report on the status of your new potential home. An inspection can greatly reduce risk of unexpected repairs, possibly saving you thousands of dollars. Buy with confidence by making this important minimal investment a part of the process.

  • Sellers

    If you are selling a home, an inspection can increase your profits, and allow the sale to go as smooth as possible. When listing a home, an inspection will instill a level of confidence in buyers as it is evident that you have taken the time to evaluate and survey its condition. Also, as a homeowner you will now have the opportunity to take care any small projects that may arise after inspection–saving you both time and money.

  • New Construction

    Are you having a custom home or building built? Have the confidence that your project is coming along according to proper safety regulations. ER Renovation is available to monitor as construction continues to provide honest, unbiased assessments throughout the process.
