We loved working with Chuck. We highly recommend bringing him in to make sure your home is ready to sell before selling and for purchasing next house. Not only was he professional but fun to talk with. He took the time to explain options for things that needed to be fixed or not. And also very patient. Thank you guys for a wonderful experience.

Customer service was amazing. Thank you for coordinating with the listing agent for availability. You explained everything and even gave suggestions for how to accomplish some of the matters at hand. The report you gave me is easy to understand and I'm so glad it has pictures too! I've already told others about your service!

Excellent service. We bought a newer home where there really wasn't much to critique, but instead of taking that as an opportunity for a quick "in and out", Chuck spent time giving us tips on maintenance, informing us on best practices to take care of our new home. On the day of the inspection, we had just got some snow, so there wasn't a clear view of the roof. Chuck came back a few days later to take a better look at it (once the snow had melted) as well as getting into the attic, which he couldn't get into during the inspection day. Thank you Chuck for wonderful service!

Chuck was awesome ! Very professional and did a great job guiding us through our first home inspection! Very informative and thorough. We were very impressed with the Essential home inspection binder we were given and the services Essential home inspection will provide us in the future after purchasing a home.
