Very thorough inspection with a timely, detailed, user-friendly report. Highly Recommend!!
- J.J., June 2021
My inspector was great. He went over every inch of my new home and provided detailed lists and pictures of all discrepancies. He also gave me a lot of recommendations on how to maintain the home. He was quick but extremely detailed. I will definitely be using him for my next inspection in 11 months.
- D.S., June 2021
Jamie was accommodating to a short notice inspection over the memorial day weekend. I can't imagine other professionals providing that kind of customer service. He was very thorough with his inspection. He provided more than sufficient pictures and videos of my family's future home. Which is comforting since we're coming from out of state. His details and recommendations/opinions were very objective and genuine, which is helpful in the decision making process. Jamie is a professional through and through. I received the inspection report very quickly, efficiently, and followed by a courtesy call from him after I had time to read it to go over any questions or concerns. I'd highly recommend Jamie any day.
- A.P., June 2021
Jaime will always be the home inspector my family recommends. He takes his time to explain in detail what he finds during the inspection. He is reliable, honest, knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and kind. His report is detailed and easy to understand. All future home buyers should definitely choose Jamie and Guardian Home Inspection.
- S.J., May 2021

Jamie (and his assistant) performed an exceptionally thorough inspection in a professional, knowledgeable and useable format! I especially appreciated the Summary at the end of the report. I’m forwarding that to my service personnel for use in the repair and replace Items identified. The only suggestion would be to provide Customers (especially Seniors) with a color Summary. Thank You very much!
- M.W., Orange Park FL, August 2020
Very thorough and professional report, with ample photos to demonstrate what the written portion describes. Jamie found things we hadn't seen, and for the things we did notice, he was able to tell us just how bad they really were and whether we should be concerned about them. He has years of experience in construction and really knows his business. We have used him twice so far, and he always exceeded expectations. I give him top ratings, and would never buy a house without using his service.
- B.M., August 2020
Jamie was superior! Made the appointment setting convenient to my time, arrived on time and provided an extremely thorough inspection. Report items very very detailed and easy to understand by descriptive account and numerous pictures including thermal imagery. Had a couple of questions that I wanted clarification on and even though he was away for the weekend he took the time ti immediately contact me and provide the information fully to the items I needed extra on. On-site he and his son were both very professional and friendly taking time to point out items that may need attention to me while we were on-site. Jamie and Guardian Home Inspection exceeded my expectations and for one am very glad they did.
- D.M., August 2020
Jamie and his assistant did a very thorough buyer's inspection for me. They uncovered serious structural damage beneath the house. A water leak had damaged about 12% of the sub- floor area. In some areas, the subflooring was so water damaged it was sagging. In addition,interior walls in that area showed significant water content. These are the types of things every prospective buyer wants to know.
- A.S., St Johns FL, August 2020
Excellent and thorough job. I appreciate the focus and detail. I will certainly remember you in the future.

Jamie inspected the home that we are negotiating to buy. This will be our 6th home, so I plenty of experience buying a home. I am very impressed with Jamie, he is obviously " highly experienced " in the detail of his job as a home inspector. I can't say enough about Jamies ability to thoroughly inspect a property, so that you can feel confident about the homes current condition. You can be assured this guy knows what he's doing. Jamie's "hands-on" experience in the construction trades gives him a firm background in proper construction standards, as well as typical areas in a home that should be thoroughly inspected. Using Jamie's services gives me the confidence to purchase our next home , without the worry of hidden problems/conditions becoming a nightmare after closing.
- M.S., January 2020

Jamie did a great inspection and has been available for answering all my questions. Thank you!
- M.C., Jacksonville FL, November 2019
Jamie is the only inspector I use and recommend because I trust him to do a thorough inspection and provide excellent results! I have used others in the past who are not as knowledgeable or personable. I always refer to Jamie now. You can ask him any questions. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, honest, and hard-working. He gives you a full online report you can refer back to any time with your log-in. Not to mention his rates are unbeatable and he is a veteran which I fully support. I used him for my own home inspection and I recommend him for all my clients. He even stayed after an inspection was over when an unexpected prospect showed up and asked me to show him the house we had just inspected. As a female realtor, I was put into an uncomfortable situation with a strange man I had never met before asking me to show him a house. Jamie stayed with me to make sure I was safe which I really appreciated. Goes to show he goes above and beyond in his work which I truly appreciated. Thanks Jamie for another amazing job!!!!
- A.M., November 2019
Mr. Hankey, Thank you for your precision. We are in the construction/real estate business ourselves here in Europe. The issues you pointed out are exactly what we would look at in our local projects. The report was easy to follow and very detailed, from structural, electrical to plumbing incl. thermal pics etc. Again thank you, Fam. Reinthaler
- V.R., November 2019
Jaime was fantastic! He arrived on time. He was thorough and explained items as he went. He even took his shoes off when he came in the house! He e-mailed me the report the same day as promised; and the report came a few hours before it was expected. The report is very easy to access, understand and forward to whom ever needs it. I would definitely recommend him. If I ever need another home inspection I know where to go.

He explained things to this senior citizen with patience and consideration. We went around the house and he pointed out the excellent, good and not so good attributes of the home. He was friendly, offering tips on what was needed now and what I could hold off on doing for a minute according to warranty standards. I was given literature and tools that will help me keep abreast of any and all home repairs. Jamie is extremely thorough, he went above and beyond what I expected! Do I recommend him Definitely!!!

I found your report to be very thorough and your attention to detail was well received. Your use of both pictures and the written details made it very easy to read through the report and understand exactly what you were referring to. As a retired US Navy Certified Steam Generating Plant Inspector and a National Board Commissioned Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspector I am well aware of the importance of a detailed inspection report. I certainly appreciated the attention to detail thorough-out your report. Thank you, Harold E. Mills

I use this company twice, Jamie is thorough and upfront with any issues found. He explains in simple terms the issues and exactly what it could mean to a buyer...he leaves no guess work - if you need an inspection for any reason call Jamie Hankey, he won't leave you hanging in the wind to figure out what your next step. C.R.DiGregorio
- C.D., November 2018
It was a pleasure to deal with both you and Connie on the phone and via texts when setting up my inspection. And I appreciate how quickly your process allowed you to get a report back to me. The report was as comprehensive as any inspection report that I've seen, and the photos are excellent and very clear. The drone photos of the exterior and the various infrared imaging views inside are impressive. Your report gave me and my wife peace of mind about our purchase, and we feel that it was well worth the cost. We also feel very fortunate that we've got a sharp and very customer-focused Realtor who knows you and Connie and could meet you at the townhouse. There's one final thing. This isn't a big deal to me, but I was surprised: When you and I spoke on the phone on Monday 11/26 when you took my credit card info, you offered to phone me after Tuesday's inspection (but before your report was completed) to give me a heads up about what you found and what I'd see detailed in the report. I never heard from you. Again, this isn't a big deal to me, but I'm surprised that you overlooked this promised courtesy call. Best regards, Chris
- C.R., Jacksonville FL, November 2018

I was very satisfied with the inspection process and the inspector. Jamie took the time to explain what he was doing and why. I learned more about the condition of my new home then I could have found on my own. I am a previous home owner of 40 years and I know that the little things missed now can cause a big problem at a future date. I will use Jamie again before the Home Warranty expires to make sure everything is good before I become responsible for the costs. I would and will recommend Jamie to anyone who needs a home inspection.
- D.G., Orange Park FL, July 2018
