Miller Building Inspections


About Me

Robert Miller

Illinois State-Licensed Home Inspector #450011744

When I first started my business, I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t be respected as much as the bigger firms with multiple inspectors.

Thankfully I was wrong and was soon faced with the need to add additional inspectors. As I started thinking about putting the fate of my customers in someone else’s hands though, I decided bigger isn’t necessarily better.

When my customers work with Miller Building Inspections, they get ME! Not a guy they’ve never met or a guy that might have just started last week, or one that might be gone next week. They work with the guy whose name is on the line. And that’s important to my customers!

I’m proud to be from Bloomington-Normal. I graduated from Normal Community, and also attended both Heartland Community College and Illinois State University. My wife (Kathi) and I have lived in the Downs area for the last 37 years and our daughter is a Tri-Valley Graduate. When I’m not working for great people like you, I enjoy helping on our family farm, spending time with friends, family and our two grandsons. I’m also an avid golfer, loyal St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan and enjoy traveling to the Caribbean.

Core Values


Whether it’s using my drone to get the best shot of your roof or my thermal imaging camera to diagnose issues, I’ve invested thousands of dollars and completed rigorous education (not to mention FAA exams!) to ensure I have the tools necessary complete a thorough inspection of your new home. I also maintain membership in industry trade organizations to stay on top of emerging issues.


I’ve taken the responsible position of carrying liability and errors and omission insurance. Why do you care? In the unlikely event that I miss a critical component on your inspection, you’ll have protection. And yes, unfortunately that makes me different. The State of Illinois doesn’t require home inspectors to carry E & O insurance so many inspectors skip the expense. I take my responsibility to you seriously and am proud to be an inspecting service that protects you long after you read my inspection report.


Is your new home one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make? If so, you’ll appreciate the time I spend on site with you. Sure, my 70+ point home inspection focuses on the safety of the home but it also helps you avoid those unexpected expenses that no homeowner enjoys. During the inspection, we’ll also talk about long-term maintenance items allowing you to budget for them instead of being blindsided. On top of that, as a gift to my clients, I’ve developed a “4 Year Home Inspection Checklist.” It’s filled with seasonal reminders to help you take care of your new investment and a favorite of our customers! We’ll review it together at the end of your inspection.


In most cases, I am the first professional to visit your new home. So it’s important to me that you get ALL of your questions answered! Not only do I allow plenty of time at the completion of your inspection, but you have FREE access to me for one year following your inspection.


Chances are, your life was busy enough before you threw a new home into the mix. I get it! But I also know you’re making a big investment and want to be sure everything is okay with your new home. You’re always welcome to attend the inspection but if you just can’t fit it in, I certainly understand. Either way, you’ll receive a customized report complete with pictures of your home and my recommendations.

Give me a chance to put over 30 years of construction experience, to work for you. You have my commitment that you won’t be disappointed!

Very professional and thorough in going over his findings with me. Would highly recommend him!

The price was very fair, and the quality of the work done was A+. I would gladly use Miller Building Inspections in the future, and I highly recommended him to others.

What really set him apart was him coming back out to take some thermal images with no questions asked. I had scheduled another company but he went above and beyond.

Robert Miller inspected my new home, and I will never use a different home inspector as long as I live in the Bloomington area. He gave me a personalized in-depth look at the bones of my new house, and pointed out every little detail that either needed attention now or later. I am very confident knowing that I have the Robert Miller Home Inspection name behind my new house.

I was SO pleased with Robert! He was so thorough and offered helpful information. And I’ve already shared my experience with many people. Thank you so much for a job well done! Keep up the good work!

Bob completed the inspection on the new home we are purchasing and we were very happy with his work. He was flexible with us and the sellers on getting into the house and meeting with us. He went through his inspection report with me and explained each item and which items needed to be addressed. I would recommend him for your next home inspection.

- Chris C

Working with Miller Building Inspections on my first home purchase was a great experience. Robert is very knowledgeable and quick to respond to questions. They inspected the home in less than a week and had the report written up the next day. Couldn’t be more happy. Thanks Robert!

I recently purchased a home and Miller Building Inspections provided me with a home inspection. The inspector, Robert Miller, informed me exactly when he would be there and showed up on time and spent several hours conducting the inspection. He was professional, thorough, and provided excellent feedback. Shortly after the inspection he provided a complete written report of his findings. I definitely recommend Miller Building Inspections.

Very thorough inspection. Robert let us know what needed to be looked into right away and some things down the road as well. Highly recommend.
