Michael Larmon Sr.
Mike Larmon Sr’s first career was as Chief Operating Engineer at one of the nation largest water treatment/reclamation facilities. He has also personally remodeled, rebuilt, and added to every house he has owned. This combination of skills has afforded him significant hands-on knowledge and experience in construction principles, mechanical operations and design methods. During the advent of the home inspection industry, Mike Sr. founded Protech in 1987 and was among the first home inspectors licensed by the state.
Mike Sr. has built Protech into a multi-inspector, full service home inspection company. Over the past 30+ years, Protech’s trusted inspectors have inspected all types of homes, from historical 100+ year-old homes to modern, new construction. Protech has grown to be Chicagoland’s trusted, experienced, premier home inspection company, sought after by home buyers throughout the city and suburbs. Presently operating in “retired” mode, Mike Sr. regularly consults with, and often joins, the inspection team in the field.
