Schaefer Inspection Service is family-owned and operated, and has been serving residents of Connecticut since 1980. Before home inspections were commonplace and regulated, Bruce Schaefer recognized how vulnerable homebuyers were to unknown deficiencies in a home they were purchasing. He saw the value a home inspection could provide home buyers/sellers. Bruce recognized that his many years of experience in building and remodeling prepared him with unique expertise to perform home inspections in the state of Connecticut. Bruce developed a reputation for careful, all-inclusive service extending beyond the inspection.

Contributing to a Higher Standard in the Home Inspection Profession in Connecticut:

Before 2000, Connecticut did not have laws requiring standards, regulations, or guidelines for home inspectors. All Schaefer Inspection Service inspectors have since become licensed. Bruce Schaefer is one of 4 members on the state of Connecticut Home Inspection Licensing Board. From the start, Bruce wanted his clients to know that his company upholds the highest possible home inspection standards. He became an early member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) in the 1980s. At the time, ASHI was the only home inspection organization in the country with a required standard for its members to conduct their inspections. The ASHI standards continue to be a gold standard for home inspections and became the blueprint for the Connecticut Home Inspectors Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. As Schaefer Inspection Service has grown into a multi-inspector home inspection company, the quest for excellence has not diminished. Our inspectors are also members of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). To improve the professionalism of the home inspection business, Schaefer inspectors have held the following positions in ASHI:

  • Chapter President
  • Chapter Vice President
  • Chapter Board of Directors
  • ASHI national education committee
  • ASHI national nominating committee

In addition to holding Connecticut home inspection licenses, and as certified ASHI and InterNACHI inspectors, Schaefer also has inspectors licensed or certified for the following:

  • Supervisory-level licensed Pest Control Officers for wood-destroying insects
  • Certified radon measurement specialists
  • HUD-certified 203k Consultants
  • Licensed New York inspectors
