About Trademark Home Inspection, LLC

Trademark Home Inspection, LLC's Boxed logoTrademark Home Inspection, LLC was founded in February 2009. Starting out as a Single Man Operation (Matt Cottenham, General Manager). Matt realized there was a bigger need for the services we could provide to the community. We started with adding a Client Care Coordinator (Theresa Cottenham) to ensure the calls were being answered, and that began the growth of our Customer Service Mission.

Shortly after, we added a Customer Relation Specialist (Don Stout) to assist with continuing to learn about what our clients needed and wanted. We were truly a small family business at that time with Matt’s wife (Tiffany Cottenham) jumping in to help as she could.

In May of 2017, the need for the services of Trademark Home Inspection, LLC continued to grow, and we decided to move to a Multi Inspector Firm to meet this demand. Adding additional Inspectors, Marketing Staff, and a full time Office Manager, we have a Team of dedicated professionals to meet your needs.

Starting out as a Small Family Company, we take pride that as we continue to grow to keep that Family Atmosphere and look at all our employees as well as our clients as part of the Trademark Family.

We hope you give us an opportunity to “Let our family protect your family!”

What Our Client's Are Saying

We were very pleased with Trademark from beginning to end. Tyler was our inspector and he did a thorough job and was very nice. The price was reasonable and we would recommend them and use them again.

Misty L – Belleville, MI

I was SO impressed with Trademark! From the initial phone call, I felt like my husband and I would be taken care of. Tyler was finishing his training so Jim was ensuring all of his recommendations were correct – we were lucky to have two sets of eyes in the process! I couldn’t believe that the report was ready and formally displayed while we were still at the house on their ipad. Jim explained everything thoroughly and put me at ease in terms of our small issues. He was very honest and trustworthy. Both Jim and Tyler handled our crowd well (7 of us total) and I can’t thank them enough. Good luck in your career Tyler! P.S. The veteran discount was much appreciated as well.

Courtney Klien – Livonia, MI

“As a first time home buyer I am putting everything I have into buying my first home. As I approached one step closer to owning a home, I felt the need to have a private inspection to make sure my investment was a good one. Matt was a godsend! He did so much for me in so little time and saved me from a lifetime of headache and financial problems. I am forever thankful for meeting him and his staff and will recommend him to every and any homeowner I come in contact with. Thank you trademark inspection for being genuine people who look out for the well being of other people!”.
