Gary was great. Even in the poor weather conditions, he performed a very thorough inspection. He followed up with me that evening to give me a quick summary, and then stayed up late working to finish the report. All very much appreciated!
- M.H., March 2018
Gary was very complete in 2 home inspections for us. He helped to uncover deficiencies. His reports contained images of the areas that needed further investigation or repair. He returned for a re-inspection prior to closing. We are very satisfied with his work and attention to detail. He reviewed all findings with us at the end of the inspections and then sent out a complete report the same day. We highly recommend Gary Sutton at Steve Smallman Property Inspections.

Gary was very attentive & informative. He took his time going over his findings and his demeanor was very pleasant when he was asked questions. I expressed my dislike for mice and he was very supportive with solutions to prevent mice from entering through cracks or what not. All in all my experience was wonderful considering I'm a first time home buyer and didn't know what to expect.
