So great! Gave us great insight and so helpful!
- C.H., Rapid City SD, July 2019
Christopher and Michelle did an amazing job on our home inspection. I highly recommend them. They are extremely thorough, very knowledgeable and well organized. I felt very comfortable with the purchase of the home after their inspection. They answered all our questions and concerns, and gave us useful information to help us as home owners.
- M.B., July 2019
We saved a lot of money by having a home inspected by Chris and Michelle before we purchased it. The house had some major problems that we were unaware of. This inspection team is very thorough and explained things in a way we could understand.
- N.S., June 2019
I was 100% satisfied with your friendly, helpful, informative service. I recommended you to a friend who is selling her mother's property in Custer. I will recommend you again, if and when the opportunity arises! Thank you so much! Warm regards, Karen Swanand Vinny Alessi-Narr

Michelle was attentive, patient, and responsive from my first phone call! Michelle and Christopher were very pleasant and efficient to work with, detail oriented, and thorough. Great follow-through! Thank you!!!
- C.N., April 2019
Christopher and Michelle are excellent inspectors. They are very thorough and take the time to explain everything to the customer. They took extra time with me and went through every detail. They are also very friendly and easy to get along with. The finished report is nicely presented and the website is easy to use. Would highly recommend!
- V.W., April 2019
Chris and Michelle were extremely thorough and eminently professional. After they completed their inspection of the house, they walked us through every room looking at everything they looked at and explained each item to us. Chris took almost as much time with our walkthrough as he did the initial inspection and we walked away feeling knowledgeable and comfortable in our decision-making process as we dealt with the sellers. Their prices were beyond reasonable. I cannot begin to express how personable and approachable they both were with us and with our four daughters. Foundations provided us with a detailed report, suggestions for contractors, and connections to programs that will help us take care of our house in the future.
- J.D., March 2019
We really appreciate the attention to detail. Thank you for assisting us on our journey to purchase our first home!! Jonathan & Claudia

Christopher and Michelle, thank you so much for doing an awesome job with our home inspection. You were meticulous and thorough and after our walkthrough we both felt very sure about everything we?d talked about. You did an incredible job! Thanks so much.
- A.C., February 2019
Foundations is the absolute best in the area! You are professional, timely, courteous, thorough, and honest. Your valuable insight and recommendations were greatly appreciated. Thank you for gladly and willingly answering any and all questions and making sure we understood the whole inspection process from beginning to end. I would use you again and recommend you to anyone with complete confidence!
- T.S., January 2019
Chris and Michelle were great! They did such an amazing job with two inspections we had them do. Incredibly thorough, very polite and easy to talk with. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is serious about buying a house!

Both Christopher and Michelle were extremely professional and were able to not only find the issues pertaining to our property but give specific recommendations, and referrals to local experts, who could remedy what they found. Being new residents to this area knowing who to contact for repairs was invaluable. We felt completely comfortable purchasing the property after their inspection and report and would recommend their service without reservation. D. B. July, 2018

Both my wife Linda and myself would like to thank you on the inspection you performed for us on the house we drove out to Sturgis from out of state to view in April of this year 2018. Your report was very thorough and descriptive and it helped us to work through some issues with the sellers. When we have the opportunity to use your services again or for a recommendation, you are out top inspection service. Thank you. Shon Lowry Tucson, AZ
- S.L., April 2018
They were very friendly. easy to ask questions about anything they talked about. It was not over whelming as they took the time to make sure we understood what they meant.
- R.G., April 2018
I will recommend you two whenever I get the chance! Thanks for treating us like family! Even Lyle, our realtor, made the comment that it was the most thorough inspection he's been through and he's been in the real estate business for 40 years! Keep up the good work!

Excellent! Fast, affordable, and quality inspection job.
- N.C., February 2017
Christopher and Michelle did a fantastic job. Way beyond me expectations!! I strongly recommend them.
- J.K., December 2016
Christopher and Michelle are phenomenal at what they do. They do a great job of putting everything together and having all the information ready to go once you arrive. They go thru all the information that they have found and are great at breaking down anything that you dont understand. I love the fact that not only are great at this but they go the extra miles that I have not heard of many other inspectors do and provide solutions and other companies that are more then qualified to handle the situation no matter the size that they find. I not only will be recommending them to anyone that I hear is planning to buy a house put plan to use them on any future houses that I buy.
- A.T., November 2016
We thought the inspection was thorough, professional and competently conducted. The report was very easy to read and items highlighted for repair and attention were comprehensive. Overall we were very pleased with the inspection and it was a pleasant experience during the home buying process.
- M.R., November 2016
Thanks very much for such a thorough inspection.
- N.O., November 2016
Thank you for your commitment to quality service and home inspections! Your willingness to go above and beyond was apparent from beginning to end and top to bottom! As you know, buying a home can be very stressful, so, getting a meticulously thorough inspection that you can trust is virtually invaluable. Ultimately, it gave me a strong confidence in my decision to buy this particular house, which was a great a relief! You may remember in our meeting I mentioned I knew people in several different trades? Well, I didn't know any excellent, home inspectors, but, now I do!! Great job, guys! I will gladly refer you to my family and friends! Thanks again! God bless! Blaine Simons (4017 Chief Dr)
- B.S., November 2016
The Verbeck's were most thorough and professional. I would highly recommend them.
- M.O., November 2016
By far the best home inspection we have ever had. Our inspection was just as much as an explanation of the workings of the potential home as an inspection-Chis and Michelle spent >2hrs w/ us after their 2.5hr inspection. Their report was very throe and was in our inbox under 48hrs. Absolutely the best.
- J.K., October 2016
Foundations Home Inspections did exactly what everyone said they would do, and they did it exceptionally well. They did so well in their inspection they save us an approximate $30,000 repair. The garage foundation had failed and the roof trusses were sister jointed with failing nails. It was a complete loss. A new garage and foundation was approximately $30,000 from a local contractor. On the plus side, the rest of the home was in remarkably good condition. They covered more than what I could imagine. I can see why a few realtors don't want them walking through... they are the insurance buyers really need before throwing down large sums of money on heavy investments. We appreciate everything they did.
- J.R., Box Elder SD, October 2016
Very professional team! Report was very detailed but not overwhelming. Would highly recommend them!
- L.I., October 2016
Thank you Chris & Michelle! Your inspection was very thorough and your personal presentation/review with me was very precise and easily understood. I also appreciated all the resources you provided that will enable me to easily find needed materials, contractors or anything I might need in the future. Your promptness, expertise, knowledge and ability to make me feel comfortable while touring the home with you enhanced my ability to comprehend all information you provided me with. Thank You and I highly suggest to you to just "keep up the good work"!
- S.S., October 2016
Professional, thorough, and honest!
- C.L., October 2016
Christopher and Michelle were great! They did a very thorough job. Thank You for making us feel more secure about the purchase of our new home.
- J.O., October 2016
Your thoroughness was greatly appreciated. Your suggestions are going to come in so handy when we need to use them. Thank you!
- M.C., October 2016
Thank you for your support we greatly appreciate all your help.
- S.G., Parker CO, October 2016
They were extremely good at there job and very pleasant when reviewing there work. Thank you
- L.M., Custer SD, September 2016
Outstanding service - highly flexible, greatly knowledgable, incredibly helpful. Provide a much-needed, short-notice inspection. Went above and beyond by going into great detail in our "walk through" (which they were more than happy to do over the phone since we were out of state), providing not only complete explanations of all discrepancies, but also tips for routine maintenance, education on anything I didn't understand, and they even emailed us a comprehensive list of recommended local contractors. Awesome!
- D.H., September 2016
So complete, timely, courteous and affordable!
- L.A., September 2016
It was a pleasure working with you both. Thank you for being thorough and prompt. Awesome work , great info and suggestions. We greatly appreciate it! Keep up the awesome work! Mary Bedford
- M.B., September 2016
Thorough, organized, and friendly. We would recommend Chris and Michelle to anyone.
- E.F., September 2016
They are very professional, thorough and friendly. I trust them 100% and would only use them for a home inspection. I really like their recommendations on products and professionals to assist with your home.
- H.L., September 2016
As a first time home buyer, the process can be a bit overwhelming especially adding in the fact that we are purchasing a home sight unseen in a state we have never been to. The home inspection was one of those things that i absolutely did not want to go cheap on. Getting multiple recommendations for your home inspection company without a doubt took any hesitation and worry out of the inspection process. After the initial contact i knew i was in good hands from the very beginning. You both were very respectful, helpful, and accommodating. Your knowledge went well beyond the inspection to provide insight, expertise, and recommendations for future maintenance and it is very much appreciated. I wish there was a "Foundation Home Inspection" with Christopher and Michelle in every city so that when i have to do this all over for a second time there is not a worry to be had. Thank you both for your hospitality and understanding through this inspection and i know now that if i have any questions i can count on you to help get me on the right track! I will definitely recommend you in the future to any that is looking to buy in the area. Thanks again, and you have made a customer for life!
- K.W., September 2016
Did a very wonderful job. Looked everything over and made sure they explained everything very well. Very happy I picked them for our new home inspection.
- C.N., August 2016
Christopher and Michelle are awesome! They spent a great amount of time with us and seemed to genuinely care about our purchase. They answered a ton of questions. They brought many things to our attention and gave helpful suggestions. I've had inspections in the past that were basically walk-throughs. They repeatedly said that we are welcome to call them for advise. I'm sure I will. Thank you!
- K.V., August 2016
This is the second home Christopher has inspected for us in the last few months. His home inspections are very thrall and very detailed when possible. He will answer question to his best knowledge and or recommend where to go for answers. Michelle excellent goes over all the report on paper and how to read and understand the report. The CD contain the picture are awesome. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to buy a home to avoid costly issues down the road.
- R.M., July 2016
The inspection report was by far the most detailed report we have ever received. Christopher did an extremely thorough inspection and caught things that most would ignore. He made himself available to answer questions and recommend local businesses to help with the repairs. Now we have peace of mind with the purchase of our home. Thank you for the wonderful service. Adam and Amber Martin
- A.M., July 2016
Money well spent. They were very thorough and spent a great amount of time explaining and educating us about the home. I would highly recommend!
- M.R., June 2016
I appreciated the thorough inspection and the offer to answer follow-up questions at a later date. The walk-through was very informative with a lot of good and interesting information. The documentation will be good reference for when we move into home. The recommended products guide is very helpful reference material. I was glad that I had the inspection, even with a newer home.
- M.P., June 2016
So thorough, very at ease about the largest purchase of our lives!
- H.B., June 2016

Thank You for the inspection. You were very helpful from the first phone call for information. This was very informative and helpful. I am glad that I used Foundation Home Inspections.
- L.B., June 2016
Christopher and Michelle Verbeck were great. The were very personable, friendly and thorough in their inspection. Having been a licensed home inspector myself I couldn't help but compare a little, and they go above and beyond in their services!
- M.N., June 2016
You two are the best, Thank you. Lorielle Blacklance
- L.B., June 2016
This was an amazing experience. They took the time to show me where shut offs for all the services are, where to change my filter and recommended maintenance for the home. I felt like their inspection was more than just an inspection; it felt very personalized to help me long term. All the resouces they sent me home with are great, and much appreciated. I wouldn't have anyone else inspect my homes and 100% recommend them.
- A.W., May 2016
I truly appreciate the thoroughness of the Verbecks' inspection. When you get their report, you truly know your house in a detailed way. No hidden surprises - you can trust that what They see is what You get, or don't get, as the case may be. I would recommend their services to anyone, with no hesitation.

Both are extremely thorough, very engaging, extremely knowledgeable and have put together a very understandable, complete report of their findings. The extra sheets with suggested products and recommended services/vendors is extremely helpful. Will recommend Christopher and Michelle any chance we get. John and Kay Rozell
- S.L., February 2016
Christopher and Michelle did an outstanding and thorough job of inspecting our rental property. I appreciated the time Christopher spent with me going through the house to show me what needed to be done. The report itself was excellent-pictures and write up. They were also so patient and helpful when I had difficulty opening up the report. They talked me and my realtor through it. I would highly recommend them to any one and I will continue to use them as I get ready to sell my propertied.
- J.F., January 2016
What a great experience my home inspection turned out to be with Christopher and Michelle! They were extremely timely in returning my first phone call and had an appointment set up within 4 days of that initial call. They spent over 2 hours walking me through my new house and explaining every bit of the home inspection to me. What a great service! Being a first time home buyer I was super nervous about the whole process of buying a home and going through the inspections. After meeting Christopher and Michelle and now having a great understanding of everything in my home I'm excited to get moved in. I would highly recommend them to everyone I know who is purchasing or selling a home. Thank you for the great service!
- E.S., November 2015
Foundations Home Inspection provided an excellent service in their work for us. Chris and Michelle are thorough, knowledgeable, and very professional. From the start of our visit they made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. The report arrived extraordinarily quickly considering the detailed nature of the inspection. When I need a home inspected in the future I will be calling Foundations Home Inspection!
- P.J., August 2015
Christopher and Michelle Verbeck did a great job on my inspection. They were very thorough and professional as well as knowledgeable. I'm very happy with the service I was provided and I thank them for it. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing the services they provide.
- J.S., July 2015
Very thorough inspection. I highly recommend FHI.
- D.L., July 2015
They were professional, courteous, constructive, prompt in arrival and delivery of their inspection results. A pleasure to work with
- T.W., June 2015
I loved Chris and Michelle. They made us feel very confident and comfortable buying our first home. They were very informative about everything that we needed to know.
- J.M., June 2015
We bought our first home and decided to choose Foundations as our home inspectors and couldn't have been happier with that choice. This husband and wife duo was incredibly thorough, not to mention professional and friendly. They provided excellent customer service and we would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone in need of an inspection!
- T.H., June 2015
As first time home buyers, I was worried that the inspection would be too much information and that we wouldn't understand it all, but Christopher and Michelle did such an amazing job on explaining everything and going over it in detail in ways that we would understand it. I will go back to them over and over and refer them to anyone who needs a home inspection. Thank you so much for you hard work!
- J.M., June 2015
Christopher and Michelle did an awesome job! Love the detail provided.
- A.J., June 2015
I worked with Michelle to get the inspection set up. Very professional and accommidating. I was not able to be present for the summary review of the inspection but I had someone represent me and they informed me that the Verbeck's were very thorough, knowledgeable, and very detailed when they went over the results. I received the detailed report and summary the next day. It was a pleasure to work with Michelle. I am very satisfied with Foundations Home Inspection Inc. and the attention they gave me to set up the inspection within the 10 days I had to get the inspection done. They scheduled and completed the inspection within two days. Fantastic, and very much appreciated. Thanks Verbeck's
- D.M., April 2015
Christopher and Michelle are awesome! We are buying our first home and didn't really know what to look for. The walk through was like home ownership 101. We learned SO much and now feel comfortable with our house. The book that they gave us at the end of the meeting might as well be made of gold! My dad came with and said that he wished he had done an inspection on his own house when he bought it, because there was so much useful information given to us. The report is very detailed and easy to understand. I will probably refer back to it often. If we ever move again in the area, you can bet that we will call this company. The only suggestion that I have is that I wish I had the option to get the pictures on a memory card instead of a cd, as my computer does not have a cd drive.
- S.K., April 2015
Christopher and Michelle Verbeck were very professional and courteous to our family and I would recommend them to anyone for home related services.
- J.R., March 2015
While the purchase of a new home is exciting, the value of the pre-purchase inspection is paramount. The investment in working with Foundations Home Inspection Services was one of the best decisions I made. Reports are clear, understandable and easy to read. While, in this case; no major issues were identified it is nice to know should a safety issue been located, Foundations would have found it. If you are thinking of purchasing a home for your family please be smart, hire Foundations Home Inspectors! Robert Brancato--CFE

They did a fantastic job on our new home. Customer service was great and they were able to answer any questions we had. Inspection seemed very thorough. We are first time home buyers and they made us feel at ease the entire time. Definitely recommend to others and will be using them again in the future!
- T.M., January 2015
Thorough, courteous inspection, comprehensive documents, a very positive experience. Thank you!
- T.D., January 2015
Christopher and Michelle were extremely knowledgeable and thorough, as well as friendly and helpful. I appreciated the time they spent explaining everything to me.
- C.P., December 2014
From my first call to Michelle to walking out the door with them from our inspection, the Verbeck's exceeded every expectation I had. They scheduled an inspection for me 2 days before Christmas and were more friendly and knowledgeable than I ever thought possible. I can't imagine there being a better inspection company anywhere in the world!
- C.S., December 2014
