He is not only a great inspector but a great human being. His wife Dianne is also very kind and provides outstanding customer service. His report was very thorough and he also gave us a full, detailed explanation of all the property issues we should be concerned about. It really makes a big difference having someone working with diligence, respect and professionalism.

To be honest, I initially did not choose Baler Inspection Group because I theought they were going to cost too much when I read on their website they are certified master inspectors and use 'big boy toys'. (Drones and crawlers). I am so glad I took my realitor's recommendation to go with BIG!! The cost was the same as the others, and the report and pictures was very detailed and clear. I appreciated the face to face time we had with Scot on-site following the inspection. He explained what he found and took time to show us some of the pictures he took. He also explained to us what the report will consist of and certain information that will be in the report. We received a link to our report the next evening in our email. This is our 3rd home and by far the best home inspection report we have ever received! THANK YOU SCOT & BIG!

Scot Baker was a pleasure to have inspect our new home. We appreciated the thorough report, lively discussions at the property, ample pictures and clear, easy to read advice, insight and recommendations. It’s given us an inspected view of our new home and peace of mind we needed buying a 30yr old home. I would highly recommend Baker Inspection Group.
- A.C., Ripon CA, November 2016
Thank you very much for your great service. It's always pleasure working with you.
- V.Y., Modesto CA, July 2016
Thank you, Scott and Deanne, for giving us an appointment so quickly. Scott did such a thorough job inspecting our home, especially under the house. We have an obvious mold problem which needs to taken care of asap. And thank you, Deanne, for getting the report to us as fast as you did. The interesting thing is that the mold counts in our home are actually much less than the outside air. The report indicates the outside and inside air mold counts are all within normal range. Gary sent a copy of the report to his pulmonologist so we will see what steps to take next regarding his health. Again, thank you for your rapid response. Suzanne Love

Thank you Scot. Good Job.

Some photos had shadows cast either from hand over the flash or something in front of it. It would be nice to avoid those dark shadows in the photo. Otherwise the report is very nice and it was nice meeting you.
