About Horizon Point Inspections

Horizon Point Inspections is a locally owned and operated home inspection company serving the Greater Cincinnati area. We bring over 50 years of combined experience, know-how, and a client-first approach to everything we do. If you’re buying or selling a home, getting to the closing table takes a team effort. We work hard to do our part in helping you to learn about your home in a way you understand with service you appreciate.

A home is a huge financial investment; that’s why a professional, detailed inspection is so important. It’s also why we hold our work to higher standards — standards set by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America. You’ll see lots of logos and certifications out there. The ASHI logo is the one that really matters — it’s the toughest one to earn. It’s a badge of excellence earned by inspectors who’ve passed a tough national exam, complete yearly continuing education, and follow AHSI’s strict standards of practice — Ohio doesn’t require this, but we think you deserve it!
