Ian was thorough in his inspection of the house in his explanation of his findings. A trustworthy guy who has the buyer's interest in mind. I would highly recommend him and I would always prefer to work with him in the future if I need another home inspection.

I hired Ian with Fort South inspection services. He was super flexible in when he could meet. Which is a breath of fresh air as it's hard to have the seller, buyer, Realator, and inspector schedules to mesh. This is the first time we are buying a home in California. Ian was very friendly and answered my questions and reassured me to ask questions along the way. Ian is super professional. He looked over the entire house every nook and cranny and explained how things worked. He explained the process and encouraged me to ask questions along the way. Ian was very through and pointed things out things that could be a potential danger for my 3 small children. Which I found great comfort in. He didn't just treat us as a "customer" He looked out for the well being of my family and that made me incredibly happy. Ian was very through with his inspection checking inside, outside the roof, the attic and we elected for the addition services he offered which included a complete check of the sprinkler system. He also checked all of our appliances for recalls. After he completed his work he explained an overview to me and provided us with detailed report and an estimate of cost to fix anything needed. Ian is very easy going and easy to talk to. I never once was afraid to ask something that I didn't understand or wanted to know more about. I highly recommend Ian you will not be disappointed.

Extremely happy with his service. Seemed very professional, straight to the point, and gave really good insights to what the house prognosis was. I was able to learn a lot through this inspection. Thank you
