Mr. Ken did an excellent job on the inspection of our home. During the inspection Mr. Ken checked for so many different things and found items that would have been extremely pricey for us to get fixed; such as problems with our roof, insulation and even found issues with our electrical outlets. You can not go wrong with Mr. Ken, as well as seeing the major house issues he informed us of many of the smaller issues as well, he is a great inspector and very friendly. My husband and I will be purchasing another home in 5 years and we have officially found our inspector for life....Thanks Mr.Ken for all of your assistance with our first time home-buying process

Mr. Ken was an amazing home inspector. He went above and beyond during our home inspection and cited 1 critical home repair as well as many others to include a simple faucet that needed repairs. He was not afraid to get under the crawl space and do a very thorough inspection to notice the critical repair that needed to be done. He was friendly and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE in all areas. He was even willing to sit down and teach me about a few things I was not knowledgeable on. Overall, he was great and whenever I need another home inspection he will definitely be the number I call.
- A.G., June 2015

- L.T., May 2015
Ken did a great job checking out our future home. We had questions about some things that were found, and he explained everything so that it was understandable, and we were well informed of the issues and options. He also took the time to show us the specifics so that we could see with our own eyes what he had found, rather than just showing us pictures of his findings. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for a home inspector that is looking out for your interests as a new homebuyer. Knowledgeable, courteous, thorough, helpful, and a sense of humor- five traits that I look for in a "professional", and that is my opinion of Ken Melton, he's a pro! Thank You Ken!
