Spike Nichols was very thorough and professional during the inspection he did for us. His explanation of both positive aspects of the home as well as potential and actual issues were easy to see and understand. He is easy to talk to and obviously wanted us to be completely informed and comfortable with the information in the report. He made himself available after the inspection was completed and provided a very detailed report to us within a few hours of the actual inspection.

We were impressed with you coming in with tools and stool in hand to allow you to do your job in a convenient and thourough manner. You took the time to look on the surface, and in depth, including under and around the outside of the house. We feel like we couldn't have gotten a more qualified person to do the inspection. Your equipment which captured the pictures of areas of concern were greatly appreciated to include in the report. Thank you for sharing the details of what needed to be done to make this home of quality and safety for us. You truly know your stuff and demonstrated to us your unique talents and abilities to point out all areas of concern. Thank you very much for being so careful in identifying areas of concern needing attention. Donnalynn and George Erickson
