Bob is a State of Illinois Licensed Home Inspector. Born and raised in Granite City, IL. he lives there with his wife, children, and grandchildren. After high school, he joined the Navy as an Electronics Technician. When he returned home he attended Lewis & Clark community college where he received his Associate's Degree in Communications.After college Bob was employed by the largest Cable and Internet Service Provider in the Metro St. Louis area. Starting as an installation technician he received hands-on experience with home and building structures by crawling around attics, basements, and crawl spaces while installing communication lines
During his time with the Technical Operations Department, he was promoted through the ranks to the level of Sr. Business Network Technician. From there he was recruited by the Business Sales Department and as a Business Account Executive, he became an award-winning sales leader helping businesses with their communication needs (internet, phone, and video surveillance).
While working as a Business Account Executive Bob got into real estate investing which introduced him to the world of home inspections. So, after over a decade in the corporate world, he decided to become a home inspector. Bob received his pre-license education from Bi-State Inspections Training School. For additional hands-on education, he has been working with and learning about home inspections from a fantastic home renovation & remodeling company, Kustom innovations.
After obtaining his license Bob decided to start his own business, Madewell Inspections. These life experiences have given him the attention to detail and keen insight into home systems, their deficiencies, and the potential damage related to such deficiencies. He is also familiar with the costs that are associated with the repairs of these home systems. This information is not usually known to other inspectors and gives Bob additional knowledge to perform a thorough inspection for you.
