Critical Eye Home Inspections was started in 1995 by Jan Odé (pronounced yawn o-day).  Having over 30 years of experience in the home building business he opened Critical Eye Home Inspections.  Throughout his career Jan has become an expert in all facets of the Home industry.  From framing homes early in his career, project management for several large national builders, a home building company partner, insurance adjuster and home remodeling – Jan understands how homes are built.  He also has years of experience in the home energy/weatherization field.  He is BPI and RESNET certified and has been a Home Energy Weatherization instructor for several states.

With his experience Jan can help homeowners make sound decisions regarding their home purchase.  Jan’s reporting system is the most advanced available, very user friendly and easy to follow with detailed pictures and easily downloadable.  He is also available to help find qualified contractors to make repairs and make sure the repairs are made according to accepted standards in the industry.  Jan’s inspections are much more than an “inspection”.   He teaches the home owner that they are an integral part in the well being of having a healthy comfortable home and believes that sharing ones knowledge is the greatest reward.
