Ralph D'Angelo did a wonderful job inspecting our home. He was thorough and professional, and spent extra time explaining everything to us. He even pointed out some maintenance tips and suggestions that we would need to know as first time homebuyers. We are grateful for his services.

I was so impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism of his work when he inspected my current home, I insisted we use him again to inspect the new construction that I am purchasing. He was flexible enough to accommodate my schedule, he arrives on time, has all the equipment that he needs to perform the inspection and had the report in my hands in a timely fashion!! Can't say enough good things about Ralph and I would absolutely have him inspect any future property and that I was interested in.

Mr. D'Angelo has conducted two separate home inspections for me now. He is thorough, clear and concise and I would recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.
- S.D., December 2015
Combines a rare commodity these days, personality and professionalism. By this I mean through inspection clear communication of what and why he was looking at and the ability to communicate technical information to a layman. Wasted no time doing the inspection, but took the time to truthfully answer questions without rushing the explanation. Solid value for the price charged; I actually feel like he should/could have charged more. This Inspector carries my highest recommendation and guarantee. Ed Boddie
- E.B., October 2015

Ralph did a thorough job with our home inspection and radon test. His many years of experience were obvious and comforting to us as first time home buyers. He took the time to review all aspects of the property and explained each item to us. We were also pleased with his comprehensive report, delivered the very next day after the inspection. I sincerely recommend Ralph to anyone who needs a quality home inspection.
- A.R., October 2015
Mr. D'Angelo thank you for providing great service and taking the time to explain and provide useful advice during the inspection period. First time home buyers need all the help they could get. So good job!

Ralph was professional but engaging, walking me through exactly what he was looking at during each leg of the process. He explained in plain language any issues he encountered, as well as his recommendations for remediation and often gave me two or three potential solutions to try myself. He has a keen eye and noticed many things I had completely missed. As a first-time home buyer, you want someone like Ralph looking over your property before you sign the papers.
- A.R., July 2015
Always does a good job.
- E.C., July 2015
I found Ralph's services to be extremely professional and thorough giving me an extreme peace of mind. I would highly recommend his services and will not use anyone else going forward. Thank you Ralph!! Your amazing!!!!!!
- B.R., July 2015
Ralph was exceptionally thorough. We have the experience that we hired him to inspect our new home because the person buying our current home used him, and I was impressed by his report. I find that Ralph doesn't just look at large details and generate smaller ones from that information, but he thoroughly inspects all the possibilities in the home and reports only the facts. A inspector who doesn't make conjectures is exceptionally welcome, in my opinion.
- D.B., June 2015
I appreciated his attention to every last detail no matter how big or small. He also answered a lot of questions we had to help us better understand everything he found.
- M.B., June 2015

Ralph, well done again. I was happy to hear that you would be doing my inspection personally, as the last one went so well. I had high expectations and was not disappointed. Your inspection was thorough and I appreciate your taking the time to discuss courses of action with me. I especially appreciated your willingness to discuss things to be on the lookout for in the years to come. Thank you for a great inspection and in depth report. -Bob Duffy
- R.D., October 2013
Ralph is thorough, informative and courteous which is why this is the 3rd house that Ralph has inspected for my husband and I over the last 12 years. The first house we thankfully did not purchase because of the many issues that he had brought to our attention. We are in the process of purchasing our second home and I thought of no one else to do the job! He also arranged for a termite inspection and gave us contacts for pool inspectors. I have also recommended Ralph to friends and co-workers and even for the law firm I had worked for who used his services many times since. They all have nothing but great things to say as well. He will always be my go-to guy!
- A.D., October 2013
Very courteous and thorough
- A.D., October 2013
Ralph was fantastic. He covered everything, documented extensively, made recommendations and explained to me everything I needed to know.
- J.G., October 2013
Thank you Ralph for making this a quick and easy process. You are very good at pointing out potential problems for my family and I. Also, you are quick to answer any questions that we had. Thank you again and we will tell any friends in the market for a home to give you a call. Thanks!
- C.V., September 2013

- R.R., April 2013
Ralph D'Angelo provided a thorough and detailed home inspection for my wife and myself. From my initial contact via email, Mr. D'Angelo demonstrated a responsive, professional manner that continued throughout the process. We received a recommendation to use his services from one of my wife's colleagues, and our experience mirrored what was described to us. Mr. D'Angelo was communicative leading up to the inspection and arrived on time. He introduced himself, set up his laptop and paperwork, then provided a summary of his process. I accompanied him through most of his inspection, taking notes, and we investigated the areas noted in the services performed section of this review. During the actual inspection, Mr. D'Angelo took the time to explain why certain elements were appropriate or needed attention. In addition, he frequently paused to ask if I had any questions. We spent the better part of four hours reviewing the home, and I left feeling confident about the inspection.
- D.P., April 2013
Inspector very thorough and knowledgable, explained items I might have to deal with later, and delivered comprehensive report complete with photos faster than we could believe. Bravo. Ken Campbell
- K.C., March 2013
My experience with Mr D'Angelo was an extremely positive one. He provided a thorough and detailed home inspection. He is very experienced and the general depth of his knowledge proved invaluable. As the home I was looking to buy was over 100 years old, the inspection required astute attention to detail. As we were going through the house he not only reviewed the structural and functional requirements of the inspection but offered insightful suggestions on how to manage and preserve the integrity of the home in the future. I would highly recommend him to any buyer.
- A.Z., February 2013
Ralph was very thorough and patient with all of our questions. As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect and Ralph explained how all of the systems in the home work. He pointed out immediate problems, and made sure to emphasize major potential problems. He also pointed out the positive features in the home. Highly Recommended!
- J.S., February 2013
Ralph, You well excellent. Very thorough and you provide a very good report. Thank you, Bill
- W.Y., January 2013
Quick and efficient!! Pointed everything out that needed to be fixed and he spent extra time helping to clean up a nasty mess that a broken pipe (that he discovered) had made! He was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions! (Being a first time home buyer that was so helpful for us!!) Thanks for everything Ralph!!!! Will be recommending to everyone!
- C.M., January 2013
Ralph really does a great job of explaining various issues with the house and even explains parts of the house that could become problems in the future and what to do to alleviate those problems. He did a great job.
- J.H., January 2013
We are very pleased with Ralph and the inspection that he completed. He took his time and was very thorough. We will definitely recommend him to friends or family members who may be in need of a building inspector! Thank you!
