Does anyone know where we should start with fixing/repairing a 1930 field stone bungalow?

We have done the obvious: new roof, new siding, new windows (some rooms) but we are wondering if such a thing exists as a professional will do a "diagnostic" on a house?
A professional who can point out things in need of repair that the layman homeowner is clueless about?
Our first thought was to hire a home inspector (though no intention of selling) we thought this could help give us some insight and direction as to what needs work and a starting point? A priority fix list? We have owned the home for 15 years and now are in a position financially to start digging in-- and di$hing out.
If anyone has ideas, they are greatly appreciated!!
