Shawn is by far my preferred inspector! He is very detailed in his reports. More so, he is fantastic at walking with buyers during the inspections, explaining what each finding means, and making recommendations for repairs.

I am a first time home buyer and Shawn could have not made the entire process quick and easy! Shawn was very knowledgeable about the inspection process and explained any issues within the home. He was also very detailed about the types of inspections he was carrying out and detailed about how to protect your home and go about fixing any issues that were present. Shawn also went out of his way to explain how fixtures in the home worked and what to do in case of different kinds of emergencies.
