Schaefer inspectors have earned national certifications for radon testing by the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) and the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) to ensure quality, and accurate and dependable results.
Schaefer Inspection Service is family-owned and operated by Bruce and Jill Schaefer. Bruce Schaefer founded Schaefer Inspection Service in Connecticut, with his father Marvin Schaefer in 1982. Bruce is a 1977 graduate of Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, earning a BS in Accounting. He has developed raw land, and built both residential and commercial properties. He is also an experienced property manager. Bruce is licensed as a home inspector in Connecticut, a certified ASHI Inspector, holds a supervisory pest control license for wood destroying insects, and earned NRPP (National Radon Proficiency Program) certification for radon testing. Bruce served as president of the New Haven chapter of the National Association of Home Builders, and was selected as Builder of the Year. His many years of experience, knowledge and expertise allow buyers, sellers and real estate agents confidence in the information they receive about the integrity of buildings for which they hired Schaefer Inspection to inspect.
Jill Schaefer has a BA in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin and an MS in School Counseling from Southern CT State University, and is certified by the National Radon Safety Board as a radon measurement specialist. Along her career path in the past 30 years she has raised 3 sons, worked in schools, and built and remodeled properties in CT with Bruce.
As a team they are committed to providing a service that offers attentive, well-trained inspectors and good, accurate information. Jill hopes that any buyer, seller or agent who contacts Schaefer Inspection Service will be satisfied with our customer service. And if not, please let her know so that we may try harder!

“A Home Inspection is a visual examination of the accessible structure and systems of the building, adhering to the Connecticut Regulations for Home Inspections. A Tiger inspection will evaluate the structure, systems and components of the property and offer maintenance and upgrade suggestions beyond the minimal Standards of Inspection. Our report will provide you with the information necessary to make an informed purchase.
We encourage buyers to be present and participate in the inspection process. You will find your Tiger inspection to be an excellent educational experience. This education includes an explanation of your home’s systems, utility shut-offs and seasonal needs. In addition, we will provide you with a preventative maintenance guide to assist you in understanding how to effectively protect your investment.”
