John Schwencke – Chief Home Inspector

John Schwencke is the owner and lead inspector of Porch Light Home Inspection. John got his start in the industry doing remodeling and restoration, a line of work that shaped his vast knowledge of building science. John later led a career for a contracting firm that specialized in home performance and energy efficiency, a precursor for Porch Light Home Inspection’s choice to offer Home Energy Scoring as an additional inspection service.

Based on his prior experience, home inspection was a perfect fit for John—and he loves overcoming new challenges every day in order to help his clients maximize their knowledge of the home they intend to sell or purchase.
