Erskine did an outstanding job inspecting the home we are buying. He was extremely thorough and explained several items to me during his inspection. He was very clear in his explanations and in indicating items that were important, needed attention or just for my information. His report (80 pages) was very detailed and he highlighted those areas needing additional attention. He included many color pictures within the text to clearly identify each item he comments on. Bottom line, I recommend him highly.
- J.M., March 2017
Mr. Betts is the best. He did a great job on my daughter's inspection a few years ago and the same recently on our condo unit. I will definitely recommend him to others and call him again, if needed.
- M.F., March 2017
Erskine was extremely thorough and very clearly communicated his observations on the property. He was knowledgeable about the older home and was able to understand the various conditions and elements within the context of their age and type.

Erskine, I want to thank you for your work inspecting our recent home purchase. I was profoundly impressed with your knowledge and your willingness to explain some of the issues to me.

Well done Erskine. Good job and report. I've been involved in building 3 homes, designed one, and managed the building of one.

Erskine did a fantastic job. The report was thorough, easy to read, and honest in opinions and areas of concern vs areas for further evaluation. Considering the depth and breadth of detail, to have this returned in less than 48 hours is to be commended as it certainly is appreciated when due diligence deadlines are needing to be met.
- A.E., December 2016

- L.D., March 2016

- A.J., February 2016
I've never been through the home buying process so I do not have preconceived notions as to how it should be done, however, I will say I am beyond impressed with how thorough Erskine Betts was with my home inspection. He made many suggestions for us that weren't necessarily a part of his routine inspection but instead were just for our own good. Thank you for your time, Erskine!
- K.B., February 2016
The home I was looking to purchase had a recent inspection done on it, and that report was shared with me. Knowing how thorough Erskine is, I hired him to do another one. It's a good thing I did - he found a major issue that the other inspector missed, and some minor ones as well. It was money well spent and even if he doesn't find anything wrong, it's worth the peace of mind.
