Our family started inspecting homes in the Des Moines area in 2013.  Due to the high demand and expertise in which we inspect homes, we have continued to grow and expand to serve home buyers in the Des Moines metro and surrounding suburbs, as well as nearby central Iowa towns.  In 2019 we expanded into the northern Iowa counties of Cerro Gordo, Franklin, Hardin, Wright, Hancock, Floyd & Hamilton. We are home inspectors with years of hands-on home expertise, and for our family, staying on top of home trends and being experts in homes is something we greatly value.   We also offer convenient on-line scheduling for those who prefer to take care of scheduling themselves.  Our slogan "inspecting your home like one of our own" says a lot about who we are and what we do.

With years of combined hands-on building and remodeling experience in all areas of home construction, as well as water, fire and wind restoration, we promise to give you a quality home inspection.  And for first-time home buyers, we'll spend extra time wtih you to educate you in home ownership.  We know homes, because we've worked on them and in them for years.  Our client and realtor testimonials below speak for themselves. You may also click on the Google links to read more of our reviews.  Our 2018 nomination to receive a Better Business Bureau Code of Ethics Torch Award speaks highly of our service before, during and after your home inspection.  

Our Des Moines multi-inspector inspection team inspects homes in Des Moines and the surrounding suburbs of Ankeny, West Des Moines, Johnston, Urbandale, Grimes, Waukee, Altoona, Boone, Ames, Panora and Sun Valley.  We will also inspect in nearby communities as well as in the northern Iowa counties listed above.  Not sure if we inspect in your town?

Testimonials and Reviews
  1. "We recently had our home inspected and didn't know what to expect going in. After meeting Chris Wiemann we knew we were in good hands. He was not only thorough but also knowledgeable and explained everything, plus answered questions as we went through the home. The report we received the same day was detailed with pictures. We felt confident moving forward with purchasing the home and would highly recommend Wiemann Home Inspection to anyone in need of a home inspection!"

  2. "We recommend Wiemann Home Inspection to all of our clients. We have received nothing but high praise from everyone who has had the pleasure of an inspection by the Wiemanns. We love that while they're inspecting the property they take the extra time and effort to teach our friends and clients how to clean, maintain and even fix certain things they notice throughout the house!

  3. "These guys are the best home inspectors we have ever met. Dave took the time to go through the house with us and explain everything. He was thorough and followed-up with us promptly, just as he said he would. Wiemann Home Inspection is prompt, honest, and they take pride in their work. Unfortunately, not every business is like that these days. Highly recommend!"

  4. "Chuck from Wiemann Home Inspection did a very thorough job inspecting our home. He gave us a number of helpful tips (we're first-time homebuyers) during the inspection. He told us, when done, "if you have any questions, call or email". More than three months later, we reached back out with a question. He responded came out to take a look at a couple of things - things I wouldn't have known how to look at myself - and didn't charge us for his time. Really great service."

  5. "My wife and I are first time home buyers and this company, from top to bottom, is hands down the best in town! From the start, our inquiry was handled quickly and professionally. The scheduling staff for the Wiemann Team was responsive and Chris gave a thorough game plan summary before the inspection and made sure to ask us if there were any parts of the home we had any concerns with from the start....looking for quality service, this is your best choice."
    - Tyson Kinsley, August 2017 
  6. "We just had a very thorough inspection completed by Dave of the Wiemann Home Inspection team. He took the time to explain some items to us that weren't initially obvious to us, like how our circuit breakers are distributed, as well as pointing out some of the potential problems that we might face in the next few years but aren't an issue today. We felt confident that having a good home inspection would be worth it, and we were right."
    - Fran B., April 2019
  7. ""Excellent personal service. From the moment I contacted them to make the appointment, throughout the inspection, and afterwards. Answered all our questions, and went the extra mile explaining things, as well as offering tips on repair and maintenance."
    - Jim C., August 2018
  8. "We were impressed by the inspection from Chris. Chris was very detailed in his inspection and while we weren't expecting anything major due to it being almost new, we appreciated how thorough he was, as well as answering all of our questions.
      Thank you Wiemann Home Inspection for a great job!!"
    - Kristen P., April 2017

  9. "Chuck and Chris do an exceptional job of inspecting homes. Having sold homes for over 20 years, I have experienced many inspectors.  The Wiemann team is authentic, professional, educational, knowledgable, dependable and energetic. My clients have called back for additional clarification and they always answer their phones and take time to explain the answer to the buyer's question. I highly recommend Wiemann Home Inspection as a choice when you need a thorough and honest home inspection and evaluation!"

  10. "After researching all of the available inspection companies around me, I chose Wiemann Home Inspection based off of what their company stands for: trust. Inspections are a very vulnerable time for a first time home buyer, and they made sure to put our mind at ease with their professionalism, knowledge, and intimate explanations throughout the entire process.  I could not recommend a company more highly than these folks, and I truly hope their hard work and dedication doesn't go unnoticed amongst the communities they serve."

  11. The team at Wiemann is professional and thorough, but also they are personable and good people. I was impressed that our inspector utilized modern technology (iPad) and produced a very clean and easy to read report the same day! They were patient and spent way more time than scheduled to help me as a first time home buyer to better understand my investment and how to take care of it. I cannot say enough great things about Wiemann Home Inspection and will recommend them to all my friends and family."
    - Mason K., November 2016

  12.  "We have now hired Chuck from Wiemann Home Inspection twice! He did such an excellent job the first time we hired him, so we did not hesitate to reach out to him again when we needed another inspection. Not only does he do a very thorough job when inspecting a home, we love the fact that he gives us suggestions on how to improve or fix along the way. He is clearly very knowledgeable and has his clients' best interest in mind."
