Josh does a great job and is very thorough!  He explains things in a way that is educational and not alarming, which is very refreshing.  On the back end, the reports that he provides are organized, easy to use, and visually appealing.  I don’t know that I can recommend him enough!

Josh is my go to for home inspections.  His expertise and experience make him knowledgeable and trustworthy.  He is always professional.  His reports are always timely.  I know my buyers are in good hands with him.  He is even available and helpful well beyond the home inspection – my clients have called him weeks, even months past the home inspection and he is available to answer questions, provide guidance and provide resources.  You can tell that he values customer service!

Josh did a home inspection for a property I was going to purchase.  He was very punctual, worked well with the buying and selling agents, was super courteous.  I was amazed that he had a drone to do a roof inspection and covered just about every inch of the property.  The use of technology and get in the crevices approach made me confident in closing on my new home.  I would recommend his services to anyone in SE Wisconsin and Northern IL!

Josh performed an extremely detailed inspection for a house I purchased.  He explained each step of the process as it happened, was attentive and answered all of my questions, and clearly cared as much about the inspection as I did.  He provided a detailed 79 page report a couple days later and helped me to understand and prioritize any issues with my new home.


Vertical Inspections did our home inspection for us as we are purchasing a new home.  Josh was professional, very thorough, and great to work with!  Written report delivered post the inspection was received fast and was easy to follow and well put together!  If we purchase another home in the area we know who to reach out to!  Thank you!

Josh was awesome.  He answered all of my questions quickly.  He was friendly, thorough, and flexible with scheduling.  Being a first time homeowner became stressful fast and he took some of that weight off.  Thanks a bunch!

Josh is amazing.  He went above and beyond with my home inspection for a home i am buying.  He went room by room and explained everything he was seeing and even showed me how to change the furnace filters.  He responds to questions quickly.  His report is very thorough and detailed with pictures.  I would highly recommend him and we will continue to use him in the future.

We hired Vertical Inspections to inspect our roof as we recently began experiencing leaking or staining on some of our ceilings.  Josh Johnson inspected all areas of the roof including chimneys, venting, gutters and attic crawl space.  After his inspection, he presented his findings to us and answered our questions.  We received a concise report including pictures to support his findings.  We are now able to move forward on correcting our roof issues.  We highly recommend Vertical Inspections for your home inspection needs.  Josh Johnson does make a difference!
