Since its beginning, AmeriPro has continually focused on customer service; quality products; advanced technology systems; and, most of all, an exceptional inspection service. While the company has experienced nearly 24 years of growth and success—and the inspection industry has changed dramatically—AmeriPro’s core values have remained constant.

Since its beginning, AmeriPro has continually focused on being the leader in the inspection industry, providing exceptional customer service; quality products; advanced technology systems; and, most of all, an incomparable inspection service. While the company has experienced over 24 years of growth and success—and the inspection industry has changed dramatically—AmeriPro’s core values have remained constant. One inspection and one inspector at a time.

Since 1995, AmeriPro has achieved many milestones in its growth path and helping to bring the local industry where it is today. In our earlier years, home inspections were not something that most new homeowners knew where to turn to, or were even aware of. AmeriPro has and continues to spend considerable resources into educating our industry and our consumers on the benefits of a qualified home inspection and how to better prepare new homeowners in a sellers or buyers’ market.

Since inception, AmeriPro and its founder have always been on the leading edge of market trends, and sometimes beyond, for the betterment of all our clients. Whether in redirecting the focus of homebuyers in a down market, to preparing sellers and commercial clients, our ability to adapt and deploy at the greatest speed has never been underscored.

The founder and CEO of AmeriPro Inspection Corporation, Mr. Michael Rowan, emigrated from Ireland in 1994 after almost 10 years of college and an apprenticeship in the building inspection and construction industry in Ireland and the UK. During that time, Mr. Rowan was involved in large portfolio inspection and modernization projects, some ranging in excess of 6,000 inspections; some buildings in excess of one million square feet; and some buildings in excess of 30 stories. Mr. Rowan finished his career in the U.K. as a Chartered Building Surveyor with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors in addition to completing his post-graduate qualification in construction project management from Reading University.

After researching the building inspection industry in the United States, Mr. Rowan decided to establish a building inspection company in Jacksonville, Florida. After obtaining a General Contractor’s license, Mr. Rowan established AmeriPro in July 1995.

Since its beginning, AmeriPro has continually focused on customer service; quality products; advanced technology systems; and, most of all, an exceptional inspection service. While the company has experienced nearly 14 years of growth and success—and the inspection industry has changed dramatically—AmeriPro’s core values have remained constant.
Since 1995, AmeriPro has achieved many milestones. When the home inspection industry was relatively new and only approximately three out of ten resale homes sold included a home inspection, the availability of inspectors in the northeast Florida market was limited and the level of consistency in inspection practices was almost non-existent. At best, Realtor and consumer awareness of professional home inspections was very limited at that time compared to today.

Because of the absence of a baseline standard for home inspections and inspectors, many real estate professionals had little experience with an acceptable minimum inspection report, or what the minimum qualifications were that should be recommended to their clients regarding the choice of a home inspector. More importantly, they had little knowledge of the objective of a home inspection with regard to risk assessment. The AmeriPro Team set out to overcome this through a strong and concerted effort to educate real estate professionals and the general public. Again, the focus of the effort was exceptional service and overall quality.
AmeriPro has successfully presented hundreds of educational seminars to both new and veteran agents, homeowners, property managers, builders and more. The result has been the establishment of a solid baseline for qualifications for the home inspection industry and more importantly, a level of expectation for the value, service and deliverable a home inspection provides. As a result of education, we now believe that nine out of every ten homes sold have an inspection.

As AmeriPro grew, it continued refinement of the necessary systems and procedures required to sustain the company and the home inspection industry alike. As home inspectors are predominantly single operators throughout the country, the technology, training and business systems for large companies like AmeriPro were not available. Certainly, there were no “off-the-shelf” solutions available for AmeriPro to use to recruit, hire, manage, schedule, communicate, and prepare management or quality assurance reports for each function of the business. These technologies had to be developed and continually refined in-house at AmeriPro to ensure the core objective of our service, peace of mind, is achieved.

In order to overcome these constraints, AmeriPro researched and developed all the necessary technology systems to run its business. This included not only the field reporting applications available, but also office operational, human resources, quality assurance and management systems. In addition to technology systems, AmeriPro developed and implemented entire in-house inspector and staff training programs—now among the most respected and emulated in the industry.
In developing these systems and procedures, Ameripro has benefited from an outstanding experience and education that has resulted in our market leadership.
Company Growth and Facilities

By 2001, AmeriPro had outgrown its current office facility and decided to build its own location in Jacksonville designed and built specifically for the company’s needs. This purposely designed building, served by new technology and systems, has been a major factor in AmeriPro’s growth.

The current AmeriPro facility includes a large classroom, a 2,000 sf call center, reference libraries for inspectors; development space, conference rooms and individual office space.

AmeriPro and its leadership has been able to “make a difference” in the industry either through association leadership or through helping individual inspectors throughout the industry. The CEO of AmeriPro has held many leadership positions, including committee membership positions within various associations. The following is a list of some of the positions held:

  • Past President of the Florida Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors. (2 years)
  • Director of the Florida Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors. (4 years)
  • Council of Representatives – National
  • Active Board Member (Director) on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Building Inspectors. (5 years)
  • Various committee chairs for the Florida Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors and Florida Association of Building Inspectors.

These positions have enabled AmeriPro to build tremendous relationships with many professional inspectors throughout the state and country.

Michael originated from Ireland and moved to America in 1994 after completing college and becoming a chartered building surveyor in the UK. Upon arrival and in line with his post graduate in construction management, Michael secured his general contractor’s license in the State of Florida.

His goal was to build a company on the backbone of highly qualified and ethical inspectors, one inspection and one inspector at a time. It was his commitment to training has led to what he believes is the best team of inspectors in the United States, with some now being the most qualified market competition!

After an exhaustive analysis of residential property transactions, Michael realized, from his experience in home inspections, that AmeriPro Inspection Corporation would grow quickly when based upon a good reputation for delivering quality inspection services and customer satisfaction.

Backed by a solid inspection team with even more residential and commercial inspection experience, Michael developed his own inspection report system, which is now used not only by AmeriPro but by many other inspection companies around the country.

AmeriPro has not only achieved its success through Michael’s personal commitment but also through the select team of home inspection experts which he has assembled.

AmeriPro Inspection Corporation consistently strives to perfect all aspects of our reporting to produce a higher industry standard. We continuously listen, research, develop and deploy to provide the best service and product available to each and every client; from real estate agents, new and potential homeowners, insurance agents, carriers, and anyone else that may use our company. This is a customer-centric continuum that is a key to our success – not just before and during the inspection, but also afterward. It is AmeriPro’s belief that this philosophy is what has always separated our team from the rest of the industry. We have received hundreds of unsolicited endorsements and commendations from our clients and these can be viewed at any time on our web site review program.

Our Vision

To be the leader in the inspection industry and to be the inspection company of choice by all professional agents and their clients.

To always be there for our customers and real estate professionals when it comes to protecting their biggest interest, their home or property, by providing the unsurpassed peace of mind they deserve.

Our Mission

To build a network of qualified and experienced likeminded professionals capable of delivering the highest service and quality, that is unmatched in the industry for each and every client we work with.

AmeriPro and its leadership have been able to “make a difference” in the industry, either through association leadership or through helping individual inspectors throughout the industry. Our founder has always worked towards a higher standard in the inspection industry, has always been available to any inspector with the same goals, and has spent unquantifiable hours over the years helping make the industry better for everyone.

AmeriPro’s long-term commitment to inspector training and staff development has been a key to our success. All inspectors complete a combination of class room training, DVD distance training, online testing/examinations in addition to apprenticeship training. We also only choose inspectors with past construction experience or credentialing. We use our on-site, hands-on training center and fully-stocked library to enhance the learning objectives for every inspector that works for AmeriPro.

Here is an overview of our training to ensure every client gets the best and most experienced inspector on every inspection.

All of our inspectors have a background in the inspection, engineering, contracting, etc. industries prior to joining our team. Regardless of their background, each of our inspectors must complete the Inspection Depot Training Institute’s 6-Day Home Inspection classroom and distance learning Training Program in addition to its 5-Day Hands-On Training Program. We also provide an additional 40 hours of new construction code inspection training. All inspectors must complete the examinations from each course completed, in order to move into the next phase of training.

Following initial training, each inspector must complete AmeriPro’s Six-Week Boot Camp which includes report writing, mentoring, mock inspections, and additional testing.

We review:

  • Technical requirements
  • Ensure the inspector has the necessary tools required
  • Outline AmeriPro’s Ethics and Standards of Practice
  • Go over customer service issues and practices
  • AmeriPro policies and procedures
  • Inspection reporting
  • Quality control
  • Software training
  • Multiple online exams to test knowledge across various areas

Once the inspector has completed “Boot Camp,” they are ready to begin inspecting with a senior inspector. Following the completion of at least 10 inspections under the supervision of the senior inspector, they are evaluated and can begin completing inspections on their own.

Since new technology, standards and more are consistently changing, we also require our inspectors to complete annual continuing education through any of the major industry associations to ensure our inspectors are up to date with the latest industry advances.
