Certified Professional Inspector (CPI)®

Christopher Melton is the proud owner and inspector of Northern Lights Home Inspections. Everyone has a specific vision of what they want out of their future home, and naturally, it’s hard to fulfill every aspect of that vision. However, when a real estate investment is approached the right way, you can come close enough where you’ll be absolutely over the moon about what you’ve accomplished.

That’s where Christopher comes in, going the extra mile for every client to help families realize those home-buying dreams—while also ensuring that the home’s structural safety and indoor environment meet and exceed the most rigorous industry standards.

A Safety-Minded Home Inspector With Immense Technical Proficiency

Christopher is a veteran of the United States Air Force, where he primarily worked on the repair and maintenance of navigation and communication equipment for cargo jets. After receiving an honorable discharge, Christopher went on to work at a major airline for 10 years as an FCC-licensed radio and electrical mechanic for aircrafts. Christopher’s military and civilian experience has given him an edge with technological know-how, and his attention to detail is a trait that truly sets him apart.

As a Certified Professional Inspector (CPI)®, Christopher has attained one of the highest certifications in the industry—and he’ll work tirelessly to ensure that your future home is safe and sound so that you can invest with peace of mind and confidence.

The Customer Service Experience You’ve Been Waiting For

  • In addition to his technical experience, Christopher has worked in law enforcement and also done his fair share of residential remodeling and construction—and he’s committed to combining all of his wide-ranging investigative knowledge in order to help you enjoy a smooth transition into homeownership
  • It’s critically important to use different approaches in order to keep people informed when they’re about to make a major decision—and that’s why Chris encourages you to attend your home inspection, showing you his findings personally so that you have a head start on learning about the home before you receive the inspection report
  • Not having all of your questions answered is incredibly disappointing when you’ve invested in a professional service—but you don’t have to worry about that here, because Christopher is always available by phone to answer your questions even in the months that follow your home inspection

When he’s not inspecting homes, Christopher enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Stephanie, and traveling, especially to the North Shore Duluth area. Christopher is an avid guitarist, and he teaches guitar lessons in addition to regularly playing with bands in the local area.
