Minneapolis Home Inspections, Truth-in-Housing Evaluations, Infrared Inspections. Minnesota State Certified Building Official Limited #MN2893, ASHI Certified Inspector.
I'm an extremely detailed home inspector with a passion for my work. I spend a good deal of my spare time working on houses or learning about houses. I love teaching new buyers about their homes, and I always encourage my buyers to attend the entire inspection. I'm a certified ASHI inspector, and I'm also a licensed Truth-in-Housing Evaluator in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and several other cities.
Areas of Expertise
I'm very well versed in building codes - I am a Minnesota State Certified Building Official, Limited #MN2893. I know the housing codes for Minneapolis and Saint Paul in and out, and a large percentage of the homes I inspect are in those two cities. I'm also very good at troubleshooting attic problems, especially when it comes to frost in attics and ice dams.
These are all unsolicited emails I've received from past clients.
This is an OUTSTANDING report!! Thank you for providing it...the scope and timeliness are excellent! I will highly recommend your services to anyone I can.
Thank you for doing such a detailed inspection and report. Nice touch having photos.

Thank you for the inspection yesterday and for following up so quickly with the report. Despite the heavy doses of carbon monoxide, I still managed to learn a few new words, of which my favorite is "flue."
It was great to meet you; thanks again.
I purchased a house and needed a home inspection. I went with a person someone referred me to for it and he was absolutely horrible (this wasn't Reuben!). It was so bad and incomplete that I got another home inspection after I closed on my house (Reuben did this second one). Oh my goodness, what a difference!! I rarely EVER give my highest remarks to anyone, but Reuben gets them hands down! He exceeded every one of my expectations and that's hard to do (you'd say this is impossible to do if you knew me). I can not believe how complete and thorough a job he did, nor can I believe the amount of time and attention to detail he took. Reuben not only did a great job with the written inspection, he took the time to actually go through my house with me to show me everything and explained it in layman terms so I understood everything. AND he was dead on. There were three things he said I should take care of RIGHT AWAY, which I didn't (no fault of his) and sure enough two of those three failed and I did end up fixing them. (Either he's clarivoyant or a Home Inspection Genius!) His written Home Inspection is incredibly thorough, well written and easy to understand, and the perfect blue print of what needs to get done on the property. I have since recommended him to numerous people and they have all been impressed and given him an A+. If you want a great Home Inspection and at an extremely Fair Price, call Structure Tech!
I wanted to thank you again for your informative and detailed inspection. Structure Tech will be highly recommended to anyone I know seeking home inspections in the future.
Thanks for the excellent report. Of the three home inspections I've had done in the past ten years this is by far the most thorough and professional. I have no doubt that the report will pay for itself through solid preventative maintenance rather than waiting for many of the minor issues to grow into major issues...
Adam and I really appreciate all that you did and explained for us. We are very pleased with the inspection and close on the house August 8th. We don't know anyone at the moment that is looking to buy a house but when we do your services will come highly recommended from us! My mom works in the title business and after Adam and I talking you up she is also going to keep your business card on hand.
Thank you again for everything.
~Angela and Adam
Thank you very much for the Inspection report. Also thanks for coming down and inspecting our home. We are very happy about the way the inspection was done. Excellent job. The inspection process was very informative and educated us about the systems.
Thanks again for all the help.
Thank you for the time and energy you put into the inspection!!! It was very helpful to go through the house with you and learn what will be needed for maintenance and upkeep of the house. Your inspection report will now become my husbands "to do" list : )
Thank you very much. The Inspection was very helpful and was done wonderfully.
I was really impressed with how detailed you were and how you explained everything. The report we got back the next day was great as well.
Thanks again, I will highly recommend you to anyone that needs an inspection done.
Jamie Brown Wells Fargo International Systems Engineering
Thank you for your services. The inspection process and report produced from it may have been the most professionally done service in the entire process of purchasing our home. Although our agent Jon has been great, too, and I credit him for referring us to you.
Quick response, comprehensive inspection, helpful and critical information for having a safe, energy-efficient home.
I immediately referred you to a friend who's new home you are inspecting today.
Keep up the good work! Nate Gorr
I just wanted to thank you for such a detailed report! It's definitely going to be a useful tool for us!
Thank you :) Amanda Lanik
This report is extremely thorough and will be a great guide for us as we move in and continue to monitor and fix our first home. Thank you again for all your help and information. If you ever have need for a reference please do not hesitate to call.
Regards, Veena and Jami
Thank you for putting this together and getting back to us so quickly. The report is very thorough and will help our position in the purchase of this home. I will recommend you to friends and family. In fact I gave your contact info to my sister who will be looking to purchase a town home in the near future."
...I do know my sister was also very happy with your level of detail and exceptional customer service level. Thanks.

...and thanks especially for going the extra mile to get up in that crawl space to find the rotted joists. I'm glad your sense of smell suggested something amiss under there!
Larry McGraw Edina Realty, France 50th
Thank you for teaching me so much about our new home!
Thanks again for the stellar inspection and 'war & peace' style report. We were thrilled with the service!

Thanks very much - I am impressed with the completeness of your report and your attention to detail. It was a pleasure taking a crash course in home operations. I definitely learned a thing or two!
I just wanted to thank you for your services and for preparing this report. It is concise, comprehensive and will undoubtedly serve me well as I make the necessary corrections to the house.

I do also want to pass along Mr. (omitted)'s comments. He was VERY impressed with your report and the thorough nature of the work. Thank you for doing such a great job!
Regards, Angela Johnson
Wow - very extensive! It's great! Again, we thank you very much for sharing your knowledge. We feel very familiar with the house now. Best wishes for you in the future, and I'll keep your card handy :^)
