Meet Joe Wingenbach, ASHI – certified home inspector
Thirty years ago, my parents began restoring their eighteenth-century house in downtown Winchester.
As a kid, I was fascinated by the way my father and grandfather were able to take that long-neglected but noble old house at its ebb and make it the strong, beautiful home that it is today.
Building science and mechanics have always been part of my life. My part time jobs in high school were for an electrician and a general contractor. When I was in graduate school, my wife and I meet rebuilding houses in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Now, my wife and I are restoring our own little piece of Winchester architecture.
My father was the first to discover the world of home inspection. He made it his career and taught me every step of the way. From him, I learned that the job of a home inspector is to teach people about the house that they are buying and put them in a position to make good decisions.
