About Trademark Home Inspection, LLC

Trademark Home Inspection, LLC's Boxed logoTrademark Home Inspection, LLC was founded in February 2009. Starting out as a Single Man Operation (Matt Cottenham, General Manager). Matt realized there was a bigger need for the services we could provide to the community. We started with adding a Client Care Coordinator (Theresa Cottenham) to ensure the calls were being answered, and that began the growth of our Customer Service Mission.

Shortly after, we added a Customer Relation Specialist (Don Stout) to assist with continuing to learn about what our clients needed and wanted. We were truly a small family business at that time with Matt’s wife (Tiffany Cottenham) jumping in to help as she could.

In May of 2017, the need for the services of Trademark Home Inspection, LLC continued to grow, and we decided to move to a Multi Inspector Firm to meet this demand. Adding additional Inspectors, Marketing Staff, and a full time Office Manager, we have a Team of dedicated professionals to meet your needs.

Starting out as a Small Family Company, we take pride that as we continue to grow to keep that Family Atmosphere and look at all our employees as well as our clients as part of the Trademark Family.

We hope you give us an opportunity to “Let our family protect your family!”

What Our Client's Are Saying

We were very pleased with Trademark from beginning to end. Tyler was our inspector and he did a thorough job and was very nice. The price was reasonable and we would recommend them and use them again.

Misty L – Belleville, MI

I was SO impressed with Trademark! From the initial phone call, I felt like my husband and I would be taken care of. Tyler was finishing his training so Jim was ensuring all of his recommendations were correct – we were lucky to have two sets of eyes in the process! I couldn’t believe that the report was ready and formally displayed while we were still at the house on their ipad. Jim explained everything thoroughly and put me at ease in terms of our small issues. He was very honest and trustworthy. Both Jim and Tyler handled our crowd well (7 of us total) and I can’t thank them enough. Good luck in your career Tyler! P.S. The veteran discount was much appreciated as well.

Courtney Klien – Livonia, MI

“As a first time home buyer I am putting everything I have into buying my first home. As I approached one step closer to owning a home, I felt the need to have a private inspection to make sure my investment was a good one. Matt was a godsend! He did so much for me in so little time and saved me from a lifetime of headache and financial problems. I am forever thankful for meeting him and his staff and will recommend him to every and any homeowner I come in contact with. Thank you trademark inspection for being genuine people who look out for the well being of other people!”.

We Are Open!

First we would like to say our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by COVID-19. We would like to also express our sincere gratitude for all of the first responders and their hard work.

In light of recent news regarding COVID-19 in Michigan, The Department of Insurance and Financial Services, inspections are deemed an “Essential Service”, and our office has implemented policies in line with what the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Health and Human Services are recommending. All of our inspectors have also taken and passed the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI’s) class COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for Home Inspectors and gained Certification.

Keeping Everyone SAFE!

Typically, we encourage our client(s) to attend their home inspection however, the current COVID-19 guidelines dictate that we no longer are allowed to have our client(s) or their agents  attend the inspection. Our inspectors will call the client at the end of the inspection and once payment is received to briefly sum up our findings. In addition, we require that the sellers must also vacate their home during the inspection. In order to comply with CDC guidelines, if they do not have another residence they are welcome to stay in their vehicle, at the premises, during the inspection.

During inspections we will: 

  • Wash hands multiple times during every inspection, especially after touching things like faucets and door handles.
  • Bring hand towels or paper towels for drying our hands. 
  • If available, we’ll keep hand sanitizer nearby and use it when needed.
  • If available, use disinfectant wipes or the equivalent on faucets and door handles.
  • We will not shake hands or bump fists.
  • We will avoid touching our faces.
  • If requested by the seller, our inspector will wear a mask during the inspection.
  • If any of our inspectors have a fever or cough, we will not conduct the inspection.
  • If any of our inspectors have been exposed to COVID-19, we will not conduct the inspection.

Likewise, if anyone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 21 days, have come in contact with someone who has, or if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, we kindly ask that you reschedule to a later date:  

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of Breath

Thank you again for trusting Trademark Home Inspection, LLC with your inspection needs and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
