Horizon Point Inspections

Horizon Point Inspections is a locally owned and operated Cincinnati home inspection company. We bring over 50 years of combined experience, know-how and a client-first approach to everything we do. If you’re buying or selling a home, getting to the closing table takes a team effort. We work hard to do our part to make getting there easy, fast and down right pleasant.

A home is a huge financial investment; that’s why a professional, detailed inspection is so important. It’s also why we hold our work to higher standards — standards set by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America. You’ll see lots of logos and certifications out there. The ASHI logo is the one that really matters — it’s the toughest one to earn. It’s a badge of excellence earned by inspectors who’ve passed a tough national exam, complete yearly continuing education and follow AHSI’s strict standards of practice — standards Ohio doesn’t require, but we think you deserve

 

Meet Our Team

 Chris Heywood-President/ASHI Certified Inspector

Chris launched Horizon Point Home Inspections, LLC knowing it was a good fit with his experience as a local firefighter, an Ohio certified fire inspector and hands-on work in remodeling and construction. That knowledge and experience, combined with the life lessons his parents, and high school and college football coaches taught — integrity, hard work, and a winning attitude will take him as far as he wants to go — drive Horizon Point’s success. Chris serves as the vice president of the Ohio ASHI Chapter Board of Directors and is a ASHI-certified inspector, earning the highest level of training and certification in the industry. Chris has been doing property inspections for six years and has been a certified Ohio Fire Inspector for ten years. 

Carl Heywood - ASHI Certified Inspector

Carl started his on-the-job training in construction, working as a second-hand man for his do-it-yourselfer dad. He later worked in home construction, getting hands-on experience working in newly built and existing home construction. Carl is an ASHI-certified inspector, earning the highest level of training and certification in the industry. Carl has been with Horizon Point for three years.

Brian Tregoning - ASHI Certified Inspector

Brian got his first job as a young teen, working with contractors and learning to be a framing carpenter. His hands-on work in construction led to work in underwater bridge inspection, forensic inspection and storm water inspection. That experience sharpened his skills in uncovering and figuring out causes for system problems and failures, making him a top home inspector today. Brian is an ASHI-certified inspector (ACI), earning the highest level of training and certification in the industry. Brain has been with Horizon Point for three years.

Radon Testing

Screen Shot 2018-10-13 at 3.58.49 PM.png

For both adults and children, most exposure to radon comes from being indoors in homes, offices, schools, and other buildings. The levels of radon in homes and other buildings depend on the characteristics of the rock and soil in the area. As a result, radon levels vary greatly in different parts of the United States, sometimes even within neighborhoods. Elevated radon levels have been found in every state.

According to the EPA, the average indoor radon level is about 1.3 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). People should take action to lower radon levels in the home if the level is 4.0 pCi/L or higher. The EPA estimates that nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States has elevated radon levels. Call us today to learn more about radon and our radon testing services.

 

Termites may seem like a big scary thing to deal with, but really they are not. If you can prevent them before you sell your home you can save yourself a big headache and some money. As a buyer, you want to know if the property is infested with termite and termite damage. Buying a house with active termites and termite damage can cost thousands of dollars to treat and fix the house.
