My strength in home inspections is my experience; just seeing so many homes (well over 16,000 homes inspected) helps me discern what is normal vs. abnormal in any given property. After 35 years of inspecting homes and over a 33-year membership in the American Society of Home Inspectors, I still really enjoy the inspection process and educating my clients of the good, the bad and the iffy of any particular property.

I find the inspection process more enjoyable when my clients are present, so if at all possible, I encourage you to follow me closely and ask lots of questions. I truly enjoy helping in this way, so please don’t feel that your presence is an imposition or distracting: Answering all questions is part of this very important part of home inspections. This is your time to be educated as to the condition of the home and property you are interested in. Providing you with a great inspection, a detailed report and addressing your specific concerns will allow for a complete and thorough inspection experience for you.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from Purdue University (1983). I have been married for 35 years, have three sons and enjoy hiking (with people or my dogs). I also really enjoy golf when time permits.

John seems very knowledgeable. He helped us to understand the good and the bad, the dangerous vs aesthetic. He helped us to feel comfortable that we knew what we were getting with the house purchase.

John is very knowledgeable, professional and experienced. He takes his time to exam everything, he walks and climbs each inch of the house! John takes his time to explain to clients, and provide lots of valuable information. His report is very easy to understand, also very detailed. We have been using John for almost every inspection the past 6+ years, and will continue using him for every inspection in the future. Highly recommended!

John Bean and his son Justin are a great team. Have used John for years and he is thorough and excellent with the buyers.

I am always thrilled when John Bean is the inspector for one of my clients.

I feel like I have done my clients a tremendous favor when I am able to get John for their inspection. He is very knowledgeable and personable and it is obvious that it is important to him that his client understand the significance and ramifications of the issues he uncovers.
