About Us

Wheat State Home Inspection is locally owned and operated in Garden City, Kansas by Doug & Brenda Harder.  Garden City has been home to us for more than 40 years and we love it here.

If you're moving here, then you'll love it, too.  It's a fine community, a beautiful community, a progressive community and a wonderfully metropolitan community in Western Kansas.  Our desire is to provide both new and existing home owners, either through the real estate purchase process or simply as a way to guard your largest lifetime investment, with quality residential home inspection service.

I have an early background in construction and have worked for local general contractors.  I have poured and finished thousands of square feet of flatwork concrete from sidewalks and air conditioner pads, to driveways and building floors.  I've formed up and poured dozens of basement walls and stem walls.  I know what I'm looking for when inspecting concrete.

I've also worked as a finish carpenter under one of the finest home builders in Garden City.  I learned early on that the only work worth doing is the very best you can do, every time.  If it wasn't perfect, it wasn't right.  I apply the same principles to my inspection work.  If you want it done once and done right, you want to hire us.

My Promise to You

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult.  Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and -- yes -- different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work -- a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.  This I promise you.
