Certified Home Inspector Michael Lock

Michael Lock

Certified Professional Inspector (CPI)®

Michael Lock is the owner and inspector of Lock Home Inspections. Where many home inspectors fail to deliver is by not taking the initiative to build strong relationships with clients—but you can rest assured that Michael is different. Michael goes all in, exhibiting true professionalism by learning where his clients stand so that he can do everything possible to help.

Before he sets foot on a property, Michael will discuss with you what your goals and limitations are as a home-buyer, going on to provide an investigative inspection of the home that will answer your questions and ensure that your peace of mind is secured.

Certified Professional Inspector

A Home Inspector Who Holds the

Key to Success

Prior to becoming a professional home inspector, Michael worked for one of Ohio’s major real estate development and property management enterprises. Michael’s primary role was supervisory in nature, overseeing numerous new construction and renovation projects throughout the area. This experience is pertinent to Michael’s daily duties as a home inspector because it paved the way to his immense knowledge of how buildings are properly constructed and how their systems function.

No matter what shape, size, or age a residential or commercial structure may be, Michael is able to determine if a property’s condition misses the mark in any way—and that knowledge proves time and time again to be the key to success for anyone investing in real estate.   

Providing a Top-Tier Inspection for an Incredible Value


Michael’s comprehensive inspection reports are supplemented with videos and photographs taken during the inspection, making it much easier for his clients to grasp why certain home components were diagnosed as defective.


Every client is welcome to follow along during the inspection for a more direct learning experience—and on top of that, Michael keeps his phone line open so that you can call with questions as needed, no matter how long ago it was that your inspection took place.


Thermal imaging is included with every home inspection at no extra cost, a tremendous value that is essential for diagnosing potential issues in the home that aren’t ordinarily accessible or visible.
