David Bugenhagen from Humble Home Inspection

David Bugenhagen Waukesha Home Inspector

Hello and welcome, I’m glad you are here! I am your friendly, local home inspector coming to you from my hometown of Brookfield WI. I decided to establish Humble Home Inspection LLC after many years working in the printer and document imaging industry. During that time, I performed thousands of service calls and handled front line relations with numerous businesses in the area. The professions I have held in the past, including the construction industry, where I have experience in new home construction and remodeling have given me the necessary skills, I believe it takes to deliver a superior service to my clients.

I am truly grateful to be in this position and look forward to having the opportunity to work with you!

I am licensed through the state of Wisconsin and use their Standards of Practice as a guideline in performing all inspections.

Happy Customers

David was amazing! He was very thorough and so friendly! He made sure we were aware of any defects before we left the property, and when sending our report. He was very responsive, and helped schedule our inspection to make sure it met our deadline. I would recommend him to every person / agent I know, and will continue to use him in my real estate transaction going forward. You cannot go wrong by hiring this amazing company!

I was so happy to find David to do my home inspection. He quickly noticed I was detail oriented and created an exceptionally comprehensive report. He found so many things I missed, and I am a really experienced DIYer.

Had a great experience of our first home buying inspection with David. He was kind, on time, professional, and informative. He welcomed any questions and was very willing and patient with us, considering we're new. He gave his honest opinion on the home - which was much appreciated. We would use his service again in the future.

David at Humble Home Inspection was great to work with and helped us pinpoint areas in our old farmhouse that will need attention in order to preserve our home and keep it safe. Very courteous and pleasant to work with!

Humble Home Inspection did an extremely thorough job in inspecting the home we are purchasing. We weren’t in town for the inspection, so it was critical to have someone who we could trust. We recommend Humble Home Inspection!

We had a short timeframe in which to have our condo inspection completed, and David was able to meet our deadline with time to spare. His inspection reports were easy to understand and very thorough. He spent nearly 3 hours checking everything. He was very personable and more than willing to answer any questions that we had. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

David was able to schedule me in for an inspection on short notice for a next day appointment. He has a very positive attitude, is completely professional, does a thorough job, is happy to explain things and answer any questions from myself and my clients and is overall fun. We finished the inspection at almost 7pm and the report was emailed to me the next morning at 8am. It was a pleasure working with David and I would 100% recommend Humble Home Inspection.

David Bugenhagen from Humble Home inspection was on time, painfully meticulous, and highly communicative home inspector. I was probably a difficult client with extensive questions, literally walking through every corner with him, but he didn't flinch and went about his job professionally. He did not hesitate to share his concerns or compliments about things in the house and have a comprehensive report with photographs at the end of the inspection. What a refreshing change from some of the snooty inspectors I've met in the past! Would recommend him strongly to anyone looking for a transparent inspection, especially for first time buyers... Thanks David!

David is a really nice guy and did a thorough job inspecting a potential home for my buyer. He was honest and professional. I especially appreciate that there was a variety levels of severity used (satisfactory, marginal, poor), rather than making it sound like everything's an emergency. I will definitely recommend him to future clients.
