Ken was our home inspector for our first home. He was very detailed and offered suggestions above and beyond the requirements of a home inspector. Even our realtor said she loved him and plans to use him again. He took his time explaining and made sure we understood what needed fixing. He took photos and left very detailed descriptions. (Plus, he is a redhead which gives him bonus points).Thank you, Ken. We highly recommend him!

- J.D., May 2014
Ken, the fact that both realtors asked for your card tells it all. Prompt, great explanations, and good follow-up.
- K.W., May 2014
Ken called prior to the inspection to see if I had any questions which was great since I live out of state and had only seen the house through pictures and visits by my family living nearby. He was very thorough in his inspection and noticed a couple of things I didn't know would be part of the regular inspection. He also sent pictures to me of areas of concern to give me a better idea of what he saw. I think his background in housing construction and building practices make him well qualified to do a proper inspection.
