William Henning

Guardian Residential Services, Inc. provides home owners the Peace of Mind that the roof over their heads has been inspected and informs them as to any items that need repairs. Providing a thorough inspection report with customer service is our primary goal, as well as a providing a detailed assessment of the homes current condition.  

We provide home buyers with information right at their fingertips about the appliances and equipment associated with the home.   Being able to catch and repair items around the home can save the home owner thousands of dollars in repairs. We recommend that homes are inspected every year, so it will build a history of the home and provide a full disclosure for future sale of the home.  These annual inspections increase the probability of it being sold quicker than a home that hasn't had yearly inspections.

We also provide home inspections for homes presently on the market. The InterNACHI and ASHI inspection Certification requires us to provide full disclosure to the home owner, which eliminates the prospective buyer from having to obtain an inspection of the home. I inspect the home for the seller and will re-inspect the home and put the inspection report in the buyers name for a fraction of the primary inspection cost. We know this will assist the seller in preventing the buyers from backing out since both the buyer and seller will be fully informed at the time of the offer.

We also provide consultation services to assist the Home or Commercial Owner in being assured that any repairs, alterations and/or additions have been performed as per Construction Industry Standards.

We service St. Simon’s Island, Sea Island, BrunswickGlynn county, Camden county, McIntosh County, and all surrounding Counties

- J.T., March 2018
Bill's knowledge of structures and construction methods is unparalleled! I would NEVER buy a home without Bill inspecting it first. Over the last few years, Bill has inspected at least six homes for me. In each instance, he made me fully aware of all issues regarding the home, so that I could make an informed decision on whether to continue with the purchase. Once you have a binding contract, I highly recommend any home buyer's first call should be to Bill Henning of Guardian Residential Services!

- J.S., April 2017
Bill completed two home inspections for me and performed a very thorough job. The first inspection identified several issues with the unit and ultimately lead to backing out of the condo purchase. The second condo inspection was just as thorough as the first. Bill is very personable and takes the time to explain various inspection issues. I highly recommend Bill Henning for your home inspection needs.
- M.R., Canonsburg PA, April 2017
Awesome Inspection! Timely, knowledgeable, personable and report ready very quickly.

Very impressed with his knowledge and the completeness of the inspection. Money well spent and would definitely use him again.
- R.W., February 2017
Bill was very thorough and spent a lot of extra time explain the specifics of older home construction. He crawled through an extremely small attic to inspect the far reaches of the interior of the home. I am very grateful for the effort he expended inspecting the home. Thank you, Bill!
- V.B., February 2017
I was very impressed with Bill's knowledge and expertise. Not only was he extremely thorough while looking at everything, but there were also a few things that he had not seen before and he really took the time to try to figure it out and explain things to me along the way. Bill also made some very interesting suggestions throughout the inspection as we discussed possible renovations. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone looking at a house on Jekyll Island or around the area.
- T.E., January 2017
William is extremely knowledgeable about homes and the inspection process. He is very professional and accommodating to any and all questions and will go above and beyond to ensure questions are answered. I would absolutely recommend William for home inspections. My only critique is I wish the report was more detailed. Many of the sections had listed "inspected" but no rating or description such as "functioning well" "operating to spec" or "may need some updating" for example. Thank you for being available on such short notice and I will certainly recommend you!!
- P.K., November 2016
Bill did a great job going through the house and finding issues that another inspection did not find. He was very timely with the report which was very detailed. He was more than willing to discuss issues found. I would certainly use him again.
- R.S., August 2016
Great job Bill.
- S.M., July 2016
Excellent inspector. Even though he was recommended by my (the buyer) real estate agent, he showed no bias or conflict of interest. Bill prevented us from purchasing a home that had many issues. I'm sure the owners will use Bill's thorough report, which I shared, to make the necessary repairs to their home. Thanks Bill. I will use you for the next inspection.
- S.S., June 2016
Thank you very much for you prompt and very complete inspection of the home that we are buying on St. Simons. In our case, we are moving from the Chicago area and were not able to be present for the inspection. Therefore it was even more critical that we could have confidence in our inspector. We certainly do and I will happily recommend your inspection services. Chris B.
- C.B., Western Springs IL, June 2016
I liked the way you explained everything prior to writing down what you saw. I really felt you were doing a quality job inspecting my future home and appreciate the effort you took in ensuring it was safe and efficient. Very professional and very knowledgeable.
- M.T., June 2016
Bill Henning is the best home inspector I have ever seen. He took his time and went through everything very thoroughly (and more than once). He put in a lot of time, work and effort to complete his inspection and report. He was also very knowledgeable about what to look for. Then to top it off... Other than being intelligent, thorough, diligent.... He was also very personable.
- , March 2016
Quick turnaround, extremely detailed report. We are remote buyers; the pictures and detailed descriptions of findings really have helped us determine whether we want to move forward with the purchase. Highly recommend.
- C.R., February 2016
Bill, thanks for your thoroughness during the inspection. Raul.

Extremely thorough on construction, safety and ascetic issues. Identified several hazards created when new appliances were installed as well as possible solutions.
- H.L., November 2013
Bill has been an excellent inspector thus far. He is a very detailed inspector and an excellent communicator. Being a long distance buyer it was important to hire someone in which you have complete confidence and trust because, Go/No-Go, decisions are made based on their findings. Our walkthrough and post inspection discussions are tomorrow but I am fully confident there will be no surprizes. That is important. Bill was highly recommended to us and rightfully so. Thanks Bill
