Charles was thorough, conscientious and explained areas of concern in terms that I could understand. He identified a hazard with the electrical panel that I was unaware of, and at a minimum prevented me from making a big financial mistake, and possibly prevented serious injury or death.

- L.H., Detroit MI, June 2018
Thank you for always being so professional and thorough!
- D.J., June 2018
I?m moving to the area from out of state so don?t have a network of trusted folks to give personal recommendations. My Realtor provided me options of highly rated inspectors in my target area, so I did some homework and selected Charles. Bottom line: I feel very grateful that I did. My Realtor and my brother (an architect) were on-site during the inspection and by all accounts Charles was professional, thorough, personable, and reliable. His report seemed to me to be an objective and thorough assessment of the home. I?ve moved a lot for work and this will be my 8th home purchase. I know a good inspection when I see one and that it is essential, especially for older homes. None of the items Charles found and reported were egregious by themselves, but taken together, they told me a story of underlying issues on a home that - on its surface - looked solid. Buying a house from thousands of miles away means a thorough, professional, knowledgeable inspection is critical. Charles gave me that and I?m deeply grateful for his skills. I will continue to use his services until I find my home. Thanks Charles!
- S.W., Kailua HI, June 2018

- N.T., June 2018
Inspection was very thorough and Charles is clearly knowledgeable and very professional. This is the first time I've used an inspection company based solely on reviews I found online. I would recommend Charles to anyone looking for the services he provides. The online scheduling process makes it a seamless, headache free process. My inspection report was available same day and I love that I can go in and create a request list and the report is broken down into key findings/summary and then the entire report. Thank you, Charles!
- F.T., June 2018

I would recommend Charles to anyone looking for an inspector.

Charles did a great with our home inspection (February 2018). He was very thorough and his feedback was worth every penny we spent on the inspection. We are buying an older home, so the piece of mind that Charles provided us was priceless. Charles not only gave us feedback about major and minor issues within our home, but he also gave us some advice about how to maintain and operate some of the appliances that were older in the home. My wife and I highly recommend him for any of your inspection needs!

Charles Shaver did a great job. His inspection was very thorough and provided valuable information. One comment for the follow up service is: if the system could send out email about "Create the request list" earlier - maybe the same time when the report is available, it could be more useful to me. In my case, I already talk to my realtor to create a request list before getting email from the system. Thank you for your service!
