Clayton was thorough, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions no matter how big or how small. This is my first time attempting to purchase a home and it can be a scary process. No piece of the house was left unturned. He also offered me useful advice as the future owner of the home and how to fix simple things that would help me in the long run. The detail of his report was also easy to read for those of us who have no contracting or building experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get the most out of a home inspection.

I have used Clayton twice in my home buying process and both times he was fantastic. I feel confident knowing the details of the new home I purchased from top to bottom. Clayton was everything you want in an inspector: prompt to the appointment and with his reports, highly detailed, communicates well in non technical language, and just a very pleasant person. His reports were clear and contained appropriate detail including a distinction between a problem area and a maintenance issue. I highly recommend him!

Mr. Clayton Bowman of Bowman Inspections Group was a true professional and a pleasure to do business with. When I requested quotes from Home Advisors website for home inspectors, I received a phone call from Mr. Bowman in less than a minute from the time I submitted the request. He was very professional in discussing his rates and what duties he performs during his home inspections. I was 1200 miles away when this inspection happened and he was very thorough and detailed in his reports, which provided plenty of pictures to show everything he was doing. I received the final inspection reports via e-mail the same day which was very nice and provided a quick turn around in getting documentation to the insurance company. As an added bonus, Mr. Bowman is willing to come back out to our home when we close on the house and walk us through everything he did in person which is extremely nice and professional. Thank you for a very positive experience Bowman Inspections Group !
