- A.D., November 2019
Our home inspection by Paul Duffau was amazing. The audio description of the condition of the house along with the videos were great. This is our second home Paul has inspected and would highly recommend him .
- K.H., Lewiston ID, October 2019
Thanks for the clear inspection report. The videos and pictures made it easy to see what exactly the issues were and made my realtor's job easier as well.
- J.S., Vancouver WA, September 2019
Paul was very thorough and knowledgeable. We've hired a home inspector in the past that was terrible and we said we'd never hire another one. After having Paul inspector our potential buy, we now see how a real home inspection should be. We will definitely use Paul again in the future.
- J.S., Anatone WA, September 2019
Outstanding! Paul inspected my family’s future home with the kind of precision you would expect from someone who loves their trade. He was easy to work with and had plenty of helpful suggestions-once the inspection was complete. I highly recommend his services to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
- H.B., Lewiston ID, September 2019
Very professional and thorough. Report came through quickly with clear explanations and photos.
- K.W., September 2019
Great job...really appreciated the very detailed and thorough report!!!
- R.O., September 2019
Paul did a very thorough inspection on this property. I was very happy with the inspection he completed and would recommend him to others.
- J.C., Hagerman ID, September 2019
During the home inspection, Paul noticed sway in a beam over the garage door and recommended getting it evaluated by a structural engineer. The structural engineer determined that the beam was stressed beyond its load capacity and needed replacing or substantial reinforcing. The sellers and even our realtor had assumed that because the beam was that way when they had bought the house 23 years ago, it was fine - but clearly, it is actually a major structural issue waiting to happen. Paul's use of infrared also pinpointed areas where missing insulation led to ice damming and subsequent damage. Thorough and informative, responsive to follow-up questions. Definitely recommended!
- V.Z., August 2019
Very good servIce!
- R.R., August 2019
This inspection is the 2nd that Paul has done for us. We requested him for a home we are buying because he was so thorough the 1st inspection he did. He walks through and explains the whats and whys to his suggestions and takes time to answer questions even if they seem silly. He is thorough but stays on task and offered to come back for a re-inspection if we had the sellers change anything. We recommend Paul for your home inspection and we will request him again should the need arise!
- G.N., July 2019
Efficient and thorough.
- A.P., June 2019
Paul was extremely pleasant to work with. Thorough and professional while personable enough to help with advice and guidance/clarifications. Thank you for everything!
- B.C., June 2019
Paul did a wonderful, thorough job on our home inspection. He explained everything afterwards and gave thoughtful explanations of his recommendations. He was kind, respectful and so professional. I would recommend him to anyone!
- A.H., June 2019
Very knowledgable, professional, honest, and patient. He was happy to take the time to answer any questions we had and run us through everything he found - both good and bad. We went from unsure and unaware to feeling confident and competent when going to the seller with the inspection response.
- B.H., June 2019
Very thorough inspection and very helpful videos for a situation where the buyer isn't local and cannot be on site.
- M.M., June 2019
Thank you, very professional and detailed. All very optimized to view report on a mobile device. Also easy to read and navigate.
- A.D., June 2019
If you are not working with Paul you are not getting all of the information. This is the second time that I've used his services for personal home inspections and each time I feel like I'm so much better educated in maintenance needs, property upkeep and things to watch out for. He is very detailed and takes the time to do things right. It would be hard for me to choose another inspector to do my inspections!
- S.W., Pullman WA, May 2019
Paul was most kind from the introduction. His report was straight-forward, well written making everything clear, and very timely. This is our first home purchase in 34 years, and his help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
- R.R., May 2019
Paul did an amazing job for us. He is very professional, knowledgable, responsive and fair. His inspection report was detailed and easy to read. I would highly recommend his services to family and friends.
- C.S., Saint helens OR, May 2019
Paul is exceptionally competent, professional, and thorough. Exactly what you need in a home inspector. Would definitely hire again!
- J.C., MOSCOW ID, April 2019
I am just very grateful that my realtor recommended Paul to do our home inspection. I am not an expert about anything, but I do try to pay attention to every aspect of maintaining a home, especially safety. Paul is extremely thorough and has a good eye for issues that come with living in a house, such as proper electrical standards and code. It's just a good feeling to know that the person who has inspected our house is very experienced, and is dedicated to the security and well-being of the parties involved. I would recommend Paul to anyone seeking an inspection, or just a fair opinion about any issue with your home, especially his understanding of current code and his eye for safety.
- M.B., April 2019
Thank you for your thoroughness and attention to detail. Your flexibility in scheduling is greatly appreciated.
- J.R., April 2019
Thank you for your thoroughness and attention to detail. Your flexibility in scheduling is greatly appreciated.
- J.R., April 2019
Paul was very thorough and answered all my questions. Awesome job!
- L.H., Pullman WA, April 2019
Paul was by far the best person we could have had for a home inspection. He was very detailed and allowed us to ask questions throughout the process. He was very personable and professional. We were able to understand clearly what was written in the report and feel confident in our decision to buy this home. I'd recommend Paul to others for their home inspection.
- J.E., April 2019
Extremely thorough--great job. Paul was fantastic with communication, answering questions, and very knowledgeable.
- D.H., March 2019
Paul is great to work with. I am a first time home buyer and I felt very confident when I left the inspection. Paul explained everything to me that was a concern and even pointed out some things that I needed to be aware of in the future.
- A.Y., February 2019
You were very thorough. While you were pointing out concerns, you were able to do so in a manner that minimized this first-time home buyer?s anxiety. You also gave valuable advice on what it might take to remedy those concerns.
- T.S., February 2019
Great job on the home inspection Paul. It was very thorough and I feel much more comfortable with my purchase. You were very responsive and answered all my question quickly and understandably.
- R.W., Puyallup WA, February 2019
Paul was very thorough, friendly, and in addition to talking about the inspection as he went along, he also related a lot of information about the house in terms of how it was built, what to expect with houses of that age (1905), things that I should keep in mind "beyond the inspection itself" going forward. His reports are extensive/detailed. I highly recommend him!
- M.K., Pullman WA, January 2019
Paul was a wealth of information and provided guidance through a process which seemed daunting. His report was thorough, concise, and provided avenues to address areas of concern. His response time was excellent. We would highly recommend his services and plan on using him in the future.
- B.B., January 2019
Paul was very thorough and did an excellent job walking me through all his findings. Thank you!!
- M.W., January 2019
Paul was thorough and explained everything as he went along. Learned a lot about our new house but also caught some things I think other inspectors would have missed!
- D.H., January 2019
Great home inspector. Thorough and knowledgeable, exactly what you want as a home buyer. He was extremely professional and polite through the entire inspection and knows everything to watch out for. Great for first time buyers.
- a.b., Pullman WA, December 2018

- a.b., Pullman WA, December 2018
He is kind, answers questions honestly, and informed. Very thorough. We appreciated that he let us stay for the inspection as well. Definitely recommend him!
- C.T., December 2018
Thanks for the great inspection! I loved the pictures and videos you provided. I will be sure to recommend you in the future.
- A.O., Moscow ID, November 2018
Great working with you and enjoy your thoroughness. I like the software, how the report is, and the added 360 camera views.
- M.M., November 2018
Excellent! Paul is so detailed with his work. The report is easy to use and understand. Even tho majority of the reported items we will not ask the sellers to fix, it gives us a good start on things to do when we move in since we don?t know the home. You really get what you pay for with Paul! Money well spent. Thanks again!
- M.L., October 2018
Paul, thank you for giving us a clear and thorough report on the first house that we wanted to purchase, I am sure it saved us a lot of money. The second house report was thorough as well which helps us make a confident decision. Thank you again.
- D.M., October 2018
You did great on my home inspection. Thank you, -Jeff
- J.M., Moscow ID, September 2018
Paul, thanks for the job you did on the inspection on 1508-12-16 Leland. Good work!
- J.C., September 2018
Paul found issues with the home that I wouldn?t have even thought to look at
- B.O., August 2018
Thanks for the great inspection on the condo!
- M.F., Pullman WA, August 2018
Very good conversation yesterday afternoon. This gave me greater insight on the reports various issues. Thank you Paul.
- R.P., August 2018
You did great, thanks.
- C.J., July 2018
Paul, Thank you again for doing such a thorough inspection on a second house. I truly appreciated the time you spent and the explanations that you gave on what needed done. Marge
- M.H., July 2018
We feel Paul was very thorough with his inspection of our new home. We understood his findings so we could choose what we feel is most important to have repaired or replaced. Very professional. Thank you
- J.E., July 2018
I would recommend you to everyone. You are the best. You are very thorough. I like the videos and pictures, they are so helpful. My daughter said she will request your services no matter where she buys a house in Washington. Bonnie Evans
- B.E., July 2018
Paul is simply the best home inspector you could ever have. He catches everything and his reports are super detailed and helpful. He goes into all the crawl spaces and checks everything.
- A.S., July 2018
I was very pleased and satisfied with the inspection. Timely and professional. I appreciate the thoroughness and explanation of the report. I will highly recommend to anyone needing a home inspection!
- A.C., July 2018
Paul did an EXCELLENT job. I have never seen an inspection so detailed. You can see he took the time to check everything. Thank You very much for a great job. You helped me out tremendously. Bonnie Evans
- B.E., July 2018
Paul went above & beyond in squeezing in the time for my inspection. He was incredibly thorough and took the time to explain problems. Honest inspection with sound advice. His fee was minimal considering all of the problems the house would have cost us should we have purchased it without his inspection. Will use him again. Thank you, Paul!
- M.H., June 2018
Thank you for taking the time to explain details and recommend corrective action as we went through the inspection together. I will definitely recommend you if I hear of anyone else needing a home inspection.
- L.B., June 2018
Paul came recommended to us and after having him conduct the inspection, I can see why he was recommended. First, Paul was able to accept, schedule and conduct the inspection in a much shorter time than expected. He showed up on -time and was prepared. Paul is very easy to talk to and very professional. Next - the inspection report. Simply put, WOW!! The report was very detailed and easy to understand. Any deficiencies were explained in layman's terms. He took photos of any and all questionable areas and included whether he felt the repair could be completed by a homeowner, handyman or professional. We are spending a lot of money on purchasing a home and I want a thorough inspection. Paul's attention to detail is truly appreciated. Lastly - pricing. I don't know what is common or normal pricing for a home inspection. However, I feel Paul's pricing was more than reasonable and quite frankly, I was expecting to pay more. Paul, thank you for your time and professionalism.
- T.D., June 2018
I appreciate Paul's being reliable and thorough and that the report is immediately available after the inspection.
- L.F., June 2018
Paul was such a pleasure to work with! My husband and I are first time home buyers who chose to stay at the house during the inspection, Paul walked us through everything as he completed each room. He is extremely knowledgeable and I would recommend him if you are looking for a home inspector. Especially if you are a first time homebuyer!
- Z.B., Pullman WA, June 2018
Paul was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, friendly and provided education with all our questions. He provided recommendations for additional contractors we needed to conduct further inspection where necessary - so helpful, as we're new to the area. He was very knowledgeable about the local code and explained the differences from WA as well. It's so good to have someone with straight answers you can understand and trust!
- J.M., June 2018
Paul did an outstanding job. He was very thorough with his results for everything. He was very detailed.
- D.J., May 2018
I was very happy (though disturbed) about the thoroughness of the report. I would suggest one improvement - note the location of some of the items inspected - I had trouble trying to locate a few of the items inspected and can't figure out where the picture was taken. I am hoping the results of the repairs/replacements that was submitted to the seller will make this home my "forever-home" and a safe and healthy place for myself and my mother. This report also helps me "see" what inspectors look at when selling this house in the future, and what I need to do for my Manufactured home that is in need of repair and updates.
- K.G., Lewiston ID, May 2018
As a first-time home buyer the whole inspection process can be very intimidating. I appreciate your professionalism, knowledge, and friendly service as you explained, in simple terms, all the things you were reviewing. It helped me feel at ease to ask all the questions I had, thank you for your patience there as well. Being able to access the report online at the end of the inspection was a definite bonus, it allowed me to review while still fresh in my mind. The photos were also a bonus! All-around, the experience was great and I will definitely recommend you to others! Thank you so much! Susana
- S.M., Pullman WA, April 2018
I was pleased with how professional Paul was and has excellent attention to detail. He explained everything in great detail so we knew the condition of the house as best we could.
- C.B., April 2018
We have hired Paul as our home inspector for years, and he always does an exceptional, meticulous, and thorough job. He explains everything very clearly, and always goes the extra mile to find the things the other inspectors miss. We'll certainly continue to hire Paul for any future home purchases, and recommend to all of our friends to do the same!
- R.J., Lewiston ID, April 2018
Paul was the inspector on a home that I recently sold. I could tell he was very thorough based on what the buyers wanted me to fix. So, when it came time to buy my next home, I chose Paul. He was professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and paid attention to every detail, which was absolutely essential when buying a 130 year old home. Highly recommended!
- N.D., April 2018
Thanks for your time and expertise! You are very knowledgeable and personable which is a hard combination to find in this industry.
- R.N., April 2018
I would have to say that Paul is by far the BEST home inspector that I could have had. He did a very thorough inspection and took the time to explain what he was looking for and why. The issues that he was able to uncover helped me to make the most informed decision I could for buying my home. His expanded services including the infrared helped to make me feel comfortable that there wasn't anything hiding behind the walls that I needed to worry about. If you want an inspector to tell you the truth and have your best interest in mind, he is your guy. I could not recommend him more highly than to say that he is the only inspector I would ever consider using.
- B.F., Moscow ID, March 2018
Paul, I feel I got high value for the amount of fee, and the report was thorough. I am a licensed architect in Alaska and am glad that I had you take a look at the property in Idaho before the closing.
- G.P., Ester AK, March 2018
Paul is a rock star! He is unbelievably thorough, and has a great attention to detail. He is extremely honest about what he finds and really takes the time to explain to you what everything means. He inspects everything to the most stringent code, but is also very realistic about code vs. Reality in helping you decide what are major issues and what is not. I will never use another inspector. Paul is my guy!
- C.B., March 2018
I had Paul perform an inspection on a house I was purchasing. The procedure went very well and Paul was extremely particular which is very important when making such a large investment.
- M.R., Moscow ID, March 2018
Paul was excellent to explain information as he inspected the house and surrounding area. He gave explicit information on the report along with pictures. I have hired him twice and would recommend him to others. My daughter and son in law recommended Paul to me , along with my relator. He continues to educate himself to help build a better knowledge base for his occupation. A home is a large investment. It is important to hire a person who is well informed and is willing to work in your best interest.
- C.P., February 2018
Paul is very thorough with his inspections. He is very reliable and cognizant of all the local regulations and codes. You can't go wrong using Paul Duffau for your home inspection.
- D.P., February 2018
Paul was very thorough and professional. He knew codes and what could be potential problems and costly maintenance in the near future. He was concerned for the value of the purchase we were investing in. I appreciate his timeliness and professionalism in his interactions. I would highlyrecommend him.
- C.B., February 2018
Very attentive to detail, efficient, friendly, courteous, and on time.
- S.R., January 2018
Paul was thorough, friendly, and knowledgeable during the whole process and allowed me to be there the whole time (as the buyer). He is a fount of knowledge (and a good conversationalist besides). The thermal imaging we paid a little extra for was able to identify a leak we couldn't see otherwise and confirm with a water moisture meter as well as areas needing some TLC. While not all the news during the inspection was positive, it was well worth knowing. I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a complete and thorough home inspection.
- J.M., December 2017
Great service, efficient and thorough. Thank you
- S.F., Oak Harbor WA, December 2017
Did a FANTASTIC job! Highly recommended!
- J.M., December 2017
Paul was great! Very thorough and personable. Highly recommended.
- R.A., November 2017
The most thorough inspection I have ever seen. Thank you for helping deal with this long distance.
- L.S., Brookwood AL, October 2017
I really appreciated how thorough, honest, and personable Paul was. As a first time homebuyer, he was able to walk through the home with me, show me pictures/videos, and was also able to tell me what was a major concern and what could be improved over time. I would absolutely use him again and recommend him to friends and family!
- M.M., October 2017
Thanks for your thorough job inspecting our properties. We proceed with confidence when you give us the green light!
- D.T., Lewiston ID, October 2017
Very thorough and nice. Easy to talk to and understand. I am a first time home buyer and Paul made everything very clear and he didn't make me feel silly or dumb for not knowing what some of the stuff was that we were going over. Kind person. Very professional, top notch!
- M.K., October 2017
We are very pleased with Paul's thorough inspection and his explanation of the finding results. Paul was very timely and provided great communication. Thank you Paul. We enjoyed our experience working with you ! Jim Miller
- J.M., October 2017
Very thorough and extremely knowledgeable
- M.R., October 2017
You were excellent.
- A.S., September 2017
Paul is the best around. Very knowledgeable in all areas of home inspection. Thank you Paul.
- R.O., September 2017
Paul is very knowledgable and does an excellent job of inspecting a property. He was thorough, explained his findings, and answered any questions I had. He was prompt for both the inspection and getting his final report to me. The use of his website makes this inspection process exceptionally easy. I highly recommend him. Marlene
- M.N., August 2017
Paul was efficient, on time and strict with all the detail required. His report was easy to understand and very helpful in our purchase, ie things (issues and codes) that need to be taken care of. A couple of serious ones. Thanks. Marlin
- M.I., July 2017
Paul was incredibly thorough. After the inspection, all the uncertainty that troubled me had gone away. If you want a trustworthy inspector who is going to get the job done right, choose Paul.
- J.C., Pullman WA, July 2017
We really appreciated your thoroughness and time discussing your findings. This inspection was extremely helpful.
- L.H., Pullman WA, July 2017
Out realtor recommended that we call Paul to do an inspection on a house that we are considering buying. Paul did an absolutely fantastic job looking over the property and preparing a thorough report that included excellent descriptions and pictures of issues we should be aware of. We shared Paul's report with an out-of-state family member who has years of experience doing inspections. He was also very impressed with the quality of Paul's work. Paul's work gave us a lot of peace of mind about what we were getting into as we consider buying the house. I highly recommend this service.
- A.C., July 2017
Did an amazing job! Went through everything even things I did not know existed!! Thanks for your business!!
- R.K., June 2017
This was a superb inspection and report: clear, thorough, and timely. The report will serve us very well in maintaining the quality of our new home. I like that Paul makes it crystal clear what he is able to examine and what he is unable to examine, whether because it's outside the scope of the inspection or because access was impeded in some way. Video was very helpful. Communication initially, just prior, and after the inspection was clear and timely. Being able to pay on the website is great, especially for those of us having to do this while traveling or otherwise away from the property. Despite the fact that we could not be there for the inspection, we feel that we received every bit of our money's worth. Thanks, Paul.
- B.S., June 2017
Great job! Thank you for quick submission of report. ...wow....that was fast!
- W.M., June 2017
Thank you Paul! We always appreciate how thorough, detailed, and knowledgeable you are with your home inspections!
- M.G., June 2017
Very easy to work with and he explained things in great detail with pictures
- R.S., June 2017
Paul- You exceeded my expectations in your inspection and reports! I understand why you are highly recommended. Thanks to your findings, we will be asking the current owner to address the major concerns revealed in the inspection, should we decide to proceed with the purchase of this property. If we decide to keep looking, you will be hearing from me in the near future. Lisa P.
- L.P., June 2017
We appreciate how quickly you were able to schedule with us and were so impressed with a very detailed report complete with pictures and videos.
- C.M., Dalton Gardens ID, June 2017
Paul prepared a 40+ page inspection report with pictures, recommendations with reasons and explanations, and information about the law. It was very helpful for negotiating with the seller and gave us our first to-do list at our new home. He even have us some instruction on how to fix some problems I highly recommend Paul for home inspections. He was reasonably priced, very easy to schedule and communicates professionally and quickly. Thank you so much for providing us the information we needed to buy our new home with confidence. Amy K.
- A.K., Clarkston WA, May 2017
I was so impressed with how thorough Paul was during our inspection. He documented every small detail and as he walked us through his findings he made it very clear which were the major findings and which ones we shouldn't be as concerned with. Not only did we learn a lot about the home that we had inspected, we also learned more about the process. As first-time home buyers, going through inspection can be very stressful but Paul made us feel very comfortable and confident in his findings. If you're looking for a home inspector who has a lot of integrity and does the job by the book, Paul is your guy! We won't use anyone else.
- E.E., May 2017
