Get to Know Michael Wicklund
Michael Wicklund is the owner and operator of STERLING Home Inspection Services. Michael began his career in the construction field. He is a third generation carpenter following in his father and grandfather's footsteps. As a self-employed remolding contractor his focus was on kitchen and bath remodels. With experience in these areas he was continually called upon to bid jobs related to real estate transactions. This work is commonly referred to as real estate work orders, i.e. any item needing repair generated from a home inspection or pest inspection.  After seventeen years of remodeling and repairs from other inspector's reports, and feeling the need for a career change the natural path was for him to become a home inspector himself. With his past construction experience he decided to attend home inspection school, he chose Inspection Training Associates ITA because of their high quality of training in the inspection industry. There he received certification allowing him to become a well-rounded home inspector. In addition, he acquired the necessary licensing from the Washington State Department of Agriculture, which allows him to perform structural pest inspections (W.D.O. inspections). Education is a high priority to Michael; he frequently attends continuing education classes, so he can stay up to date on the most current building practices.  Michael finds great satisfaction as a full time home and commercial building inspector educating perspective buyers.

S T E R L I N G Home Inspection Services has been serving the Puget Sound area for sixteen years. Michael Wicklund is the owner and is an ITA Certified Inspector and member of the American Socity of Home Inspectors (A.S.H.I.).    Michael is also a licensed structural pest inspector with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) and is currently an instructor at the ASHI school in the Seattle area for teaching new inspectors.

S T E R L I N G Home Inspection Services offers the following: Full home inspections, WDO pest inspections, combustible gas leak testing, and sewer/drain video scanning.  We provide computer generated property inspection reports, delivered by noon the day following of the inspection.  Rush orders are available.  A summary review and property walk through are done at the time of the inspection. Reports can be made in a hard bound printed format or CD Disc, PDF Format and E-Mailed.

We encourage our clients to be present during the inspection and to ask questions, so they can become familiar with their new home and its systems and components.  I believe an important part of the inspection process is education and understanding your new home.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEE We pride ourselves in offering the finest inspection services in the Puget Sound.  We back that up in writing with an industry leading satisfaction guarantee, printed on every Sterling Inspection Service Contract. The satisfaction guarantee says, that if a client is dissatisfied with a Sterling Inspections' inspector or the written report, that the client may choose to have the property re-inspected by one of our competitors.  Sterling Inspections will refund your inspection fee and pay for the new inspection.  This guarantee is just one more way we demonstrate our desire and commitment to meet and exceed your expectations. We want to insure you have an enjoyable real estate experience.
