About Me

Hello, my name is Barry Saugen and I am the primary inspector for Barry Saugen Inspections.  I am a certified member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) Membership ID: InterNACHI05020720. I have over 20 years experience and have performed over 12,000 inspections.

My wife, Stacie, our office manager, does the scheduling for the business so I can concentrate on the inspections.

Business Motto


I believe that Experience and Integrity are the only way to conduct business.

Which is why my business motto is "Experience and Integrity".

Report Policy


Our policy is to have our reports out to our clients by email within 2 business days, but we consistently have them out within 24 hours.

Timeliness is extremely important in this business, contingencies can be short, if our agents need a rush, we always do our best to accommodate.
