Jim is extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and helpful. Jim allowed me to ask questions and gave me thoughtful and useful information. I have had more than five years remodeling experience / cabinet installer and eleven years as a journeyman industrial painter, so I was able to ask specific questions. Outside my area of knowledge or experience, Jim was very generous with his experienced recommendations and very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Jim and will do so with any friends or family looking for a qualified, reliable, and trustworthy home inspector. Thanks, Jim!!! KUDOS.

I was present during the inspection and thought that Shawn was very thorough in his inspection. He was also very courteous to me and answered all my questions in a way that I could understand. Thank you to Shawn for a job done with a high level of professionalism...and for his reassuring words to a buyer who is more than a litle anxious in this time of economic uncertainty in the real estate market in our country!
- A.L., December 2010
Jim did a fantastic job. this was my first home inspection and I did not know what to expect. Jim was both knowledgeable and polite. He allowed me to tag along with him during the inspection asking questions and also receiving advice where he saw fit. He thoroughly scavaged the house and displayed a keen interest in doing a great job. As a buyer a priority is knowing as much about a property as possible prior to signing on the dotted line. Jim found issues which had not been previously found by contractors that I had requested look at the house. Having full insight prior to closing is a great thing. I would highly recommend Jim and Quality Inspection for your inspection needs.
