My name is Jerry Kuiper, owner and home inspector for Progressive Inspecting Solutions.  My goal is to provide high-quality services to help you, whether you are searching for a new home, or want to know the condition of your existing home.  In fact, if, at the end of the inspection, you are not 100% satisfied with the inspection, I will give you your money back.  You will receive one-on-one attention throughout the process, and I encourage you to contact me at any time after your inspection.  I am here to help you in the future as well.

I'm a Certified Professional Inspector, a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). It's the only organization that requires it's home inspectors to pass a certification exam to become a member. Other organizations allow candidate membership just for paying dues. Not NACHI. To be a member of NACHI, I had to pass their Home Inspector's Exam, as well as their other requirements for membership. I've done that and earned the seal you see in the sidebar to the right. Click to verify my status as a member in good standing.

I am based in the Hudsonville / Grand Rapids area, but I inspect homes throughout West Michigan, including Kent, Ottawa, Barry, Muskegon, Newaygo and Allegan counties. Please contact me for a free quote, or if you have any questions about home inspections or house related things.  You can contact me in many ways:

  • Just click on the "Have me call you" button to the right.  I will call you as soon as I am able.
  • Call me directly - 616-617-1550
  • Go to the contact page and fill out the information.
  • Email me - I will get back to you as soon as possible.


My Philosophy - My goal is to provide high-quality services that are appropriate to your needs and give you the information you are looking for.

Personal Attention - You will receive one-on-one attention throughout the entire process from beginning to end.

Your Participation - You are encouraged to participate and provide input and questions during or after the inspection: my job is to give you as much information as possible.

Professionalism - I strive to maintain a consistently high level of professional care and responsibility in each project.  I guarantee all of my work to be of the highest quality, because I know you would expect nothing less.

"Approachable, thorough and professional would be the first 3 words I would use to describe your inspection. You were not annoyed with all my kids asking questions and explained things very well to all of us. Thanks for taking 3 hours of your day to inspect the house and for taking descriptive pictures to go with the report which probably took another 3 hours to prepare. Your report held no misunderstandings and was exceptionally meticulous. Thank you!" Lynn D., July 2014

My Promise to You

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me.  Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing.  One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work.  Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort.  If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.  This I promise you
