Client Testimonials


Mark M. Re-max / Advantage Plus

I’ve worked with Brad for several years. His work ethic is exceptional and his skill-set for the work he does is the most knowlegable I have seen.

Beth J. / Home Buyer

I called ARK after my first inspection because of mistrust by my first inspector. Brad found many problems with the house that was missed, some of them dangerous. ARK pointed these out and saved me hundreds of dollars in energy costs plus the dangerous wiring has been fixed. I’m glad I called.

Our home was inspected by Brad Klatke. He did excellent job. He came in time & did inspection throughly. Charges was reasonable.
