We're Here to Help You

Make Informed Decisions

Buying a new home is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make. And it’s a decision that will affect you for years to come. There’s always considerable risk involved when making such a large purchase decision, but a professional inspection will significantly reduce your risk and help make the entire home buying process easier and less stressful.

We strongly encourage all of our clients to accompany us during the inspection. You should feel free to ask the inspector any questions you may have during the inspection process. The inspector will point out problems and explain them to you. The inspector will also show you the good points of the house as well. Plus, we will explain what routine maintenance is needed to keep the house in top condition. This will help you to get the most benefit from the inspection and gain the most understanding of the systems that make up your home, and how to maintain them.

Mike Steinmetz

Inspector for Regional for over 25 years
We lost a very valuable member of our family, a friendly and devoted inspector and a very good friend to many realtors and clients over a span of thirty years. After a stint in the US Navy doing pre and post flight inspections on fighter jet aircraft on an aircraft carrier Mike returned home to St Louis. He put his training and well developed skills to use in the home inspection business and became really good at finding details, both good and bad, in a house and conveying that information to a client. He had a laid back manner and made clients comfortable with the home while making sure they understood what he found and the severity of it.Mike was a conscientious and completely reliable Inspector, never calling in sick over the years until he was too ill and hospitalized. Once he recovered he was eager to return to work and did so as soon as his doctors released him each time. He made himself available even when in pain and not feeling well. He put up good fight and tried to battle right to the end. Mike will be remembered as a good worker, inspector and above all a good man.Michael Joseph Steinmetz 56, of Hillsboro Mo. passed away on September 25, 2019, in St. Louis Mo. Born July 2, 1963, in Mc Minville Tn. He was a U.S. Navy Veteran and member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Hillsboro. 30 plus year employee of Regional Home Inspection Co. An avid football fan and fisherman and a lover of music.
