Steve Surette's Home Inspector Bio

Father of three girls, Catie 19, Molly 16 & Annie 9.  Married to Cathy for the past 23 years.  We live in a 40 yr. old home in Carmel, IN.  that was built with a crawl space then converted to a basement.In 1991, I was offered to take over and run my Dad’s home inspection business.  In 1976 my father began Dave Surette and Associates, Inc. when I was 14 years old.  My younger brothers Scott and Randy also operate inspection companies in the Indianapolis market place.  

During the past 20 yrs I have inspected nearly 10,000 single family homes.  I bring an understanding of defects in foundations based on experience.  I know when your foundation system is defective and which repair method will correct the problem.  I also know that foundations are one component in the complicated system you call home.

I served two one year terms as the President of the Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).  In that position we formed professional relationships with MIBOR, IAR, BAGI and completed a five year effort with our State legislatures to enact a law requiring licensing for professional home inspectors.  This began July 2005.

When I am not working, I enjoy traveling in our mini-motor home with the family. But most of the time I ride bicycles and have competed in long distance events such as RAIN (Ride Across Indiana). My best ride was the Hilly Hundred with my daughter’s Catie & Molly.  We rode a tandem with a tag along.  I seldom had to pedal.  I am active with Bicycle Indiana, the state wide advocacy group for bicyclist. Currently I serve on the License Plate committee.  Beginning 2011 you will be able to purchase an           “I Share the Road” bicycle license plate through the BMV.  Proceeds will improve the transportation system for all user groups as it relates to bicycles.
