About On the Level Inspections



Our Mission:

On the Level Home Inspections is committed to excellence in every aspect of our business. We uphold a standard of professionalism bound by Integrity, Accuracy, Fairness, Honesty, Reliability and Personal Responsibility.

Our distinction is the quality of service we bring to our customers. Accurate knowledge of our trade combined with experience and ability is what makes us true professionals. Above all, we are watchful of our customers' interests and make their concerns the basis of our business. "We do our inspections as if we are buying for ourselves".

At On the Level Home Inspections we are seasoned, veteran inspectors with years of residential construction and remodeling expertise. A family-owned business, we specialize in residential and light commercial properties. We are members of NACHI (National Association of Certified Home Inspectors) and have had extensive inspection training. We cover southern Arizona and are familiar with building codes and issues unique to homes and commercial sites in our part of the state. Additionally, we inspect pools and spas for an additional fee.

We have a genuine interest in your safety and well-being. From top to bottom, we inspect the property for any existing or potential safety hazards that may exist, and report on them in a clear format. We also check for problems with the structural integrity of the property.

Committed to consumer education, we urge you to be present at the inspection, a valuable educational experience during which you can ask questions on the spot and better understand our report. We offer maintenance tips, and share knowledge of the home that gives you control, confidence, and peace of mind about your decision and negotiations. Whether you are buying or selling, knowing the condition of the property guarantees a fair, smooth transaction, especially with today's current high cost of real estate.

Our advice does not end with the inspection; we welcome your calls anytime after the inspection. On the Level Home Inspections understands that buying or marketing a property is one of the largest financial and emotional investments that you can make. Using our services early in the process can save you thousands of dollars on repair items.

Our user-friendly, computer generated reports include digital photographs and videos, with problem areas highlighted throughout the report. Easy to read, detailed, and thorough, our reports are available by e-mail so they can be accessed by you or your real estate professionals from anywhere. The report will tell you exactly what to expect in both interior and exterior maintenance before you buy or sell, to avoid unpleasant surprises. Our reports also allow you to easily generate a repair list to help simplify your real estate transaction or perform your own service.

We request that you call as soon as possible to schedule an inspection, as our schedule fills up quickly and we want to accommodate you as best we can.

How is On the Level Home Inspections distinguished from other inspectors? With our extensive background and experience, we're well-respected in our service area. We receive much of our business from word-of-mouth referrals given by satisfied customers, which means a great deal.

We love what we do, and give it our all. We're totally patient and personable, good teachers, and easy to work with. We want to help clients in every way possible, and we keep clients' concerns uppermost in mind throughout the entire process.

Most important, we're distinguished by providing integrity of quality, personalized service and, again, by our experience-- there's simply no substitute!

Our dedication to you and our wish to see you safe and comfortable in your home are unparalleled-call us today to find out for yourself why On the Level Home Inspections is your home inspector!


Meet Your Inspector


Pat Zech Owner / Certified Inspector

"I have been around and involved in construction since I can remember!" My father taught me the satisfaction of building things with your hands and that pleasure has never left me. I remember building and working with him on our mountain cabin back in the 60’s. I started working on my own homes and doing construction back in the 70’s and worked on a framing crew for Estes Homes during that time. My wife and I are currently in our 14 th home (she says last one!) that we have been remodeling and working on for almost 11 years now.

My involvement with the construction industry stayed strong enough that when I retired from police work in the early 90’s, I moved to Reno, Nevada and was the general manager of a construction material and supply business until I became a general contractor and started my own company. We grew our own company to the point we had branches in both Reno and Las Vegas and at one time had 80 employees in the field! Family and medical concerns brought us back to Tucson in 2001 where I became a corporate trainer but still kept my involvement in building and remodeling strong. I teamed up with a long time friend in 2013 put my talents in the industry to work by becoming a licensed home inspector and working for his company.

My exposure and experience has allowed me to become familiar with a multitude of building styles, techniques and materials and has educated me on the various systems within your home. I look forward to putting my expertise and experience to work for you by serving your home inspection needs!
