With all of the stress that comes with the home buying process, it was a welcomed relief to have to opportunity to work with Alton Inspection for the home inspection. He was professional, thorough, and make sure we had all the information to make an informed decision on purchasing a new home. The report was comprehensive and he even took time to follow up to ensure he answered all of our questions. We could not have asked for a better experience.

Very thorough, professional and friendly. This was the easiest and smoothest element in my home buying process!!

I used Richard Alton to inspect the home I was selling as well as the home I was purchasing. I truly appreciate how thorough and conscientious he was, and the time he took to explain the findings to me personally as well as the written report. I consider myself knowledgable about home repairs, etc., and he found many items I never would have considered, both in the home I was purchasing as well as the home I was selling. The price he charged for his services is quite reasonable. I highly recommend using him if you require a home inspection.

Richard Alton is extremely thorough. He does his best to address everything, even if it requires more of his time. He is a great home inspector. His report is well written and easy to navigate. We love the fact that it has the create a request list feature so that you can make a shorter list to negotiate with the seller, use for repair estimates etc. He is honest and has a lot of experience. I highly recommend him.

Richard recently performed building inspection on my first house and I was surprised by how stress free the whole experience was for me. He is very knowledgeable and experienced and right at the get go he set clear expectations of what the inspection is and what it isn't. He is very detail oriented and guided me through the entire inspection of what his findings and concerns are. He answered all the question I asked to my satisfaction during and after the inspection. His report was very visual and detailed. He was kind enough to follow-up with me when his report came out and encouraged me to ask more questions. I absolutely recommend his services to all home buyers.

Richard was very thorough, explained everything he found, and the report was amazing! We took a contractor up to look at the concerns of the house we are considering, and because of Richard's extensive report and expertise, were able to seal the deal quickly and efficiently...can't thank him enough for all the hard work he put into checking this house over. AND especially explaining what he found in great detail, following up with emails and phone calls to make sure we were completely satisfied! Will recommend his services to EVERYONE that asks! Thank You was a pleasure working with you.

Richard is incredibly thorough. We are purchasing a 100-year old house, and Richard is very conscious of putting the home's issues in proper perspective and making recommendations to us. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

We loved Richard! He explained everything right from the start including what his job was , what he was going to do and how he was going to do it! He went over all his paperwork page by page so we knew exactly what we were signing. He was professional, courteous and efficient, just like a well oiled machine! haha Our finalized emailed report (which came exactly when he said it would) was fantastic with much detail and many clear pictures. There is no question Richard has been doing his job a long time and has completely aced it. Very satisfied and highly highly recommend him.

Mr. Alton spent 5 hours with me on a 3800 sq ft home. He is methodical, thorough, communicates well, and willing to share residential construction and maintenance insight. I have had good home inspections, however, this was the best work I have seen and provided the most value as a home buyer. J. K.

Enjoyed the knowledge Mr Alton shared, was a great experience! Walked us through every step, and presented a very professional report with pictures which makes for easier reference. Highly recommend!

Dick, very personable, thorough & dogged at following protocol. Even made the experience pleasant! Detailed reporting is unmatched. I'm still filling-up my pea-brain with such an abundance of critical information. Impressed & schooled! ~holliewoods

I found Mr. Alton to be both extremely knowledgeable/competent and instructive to me (as the potential buyer). He clearly is very experienced and was able to use his experience to my advantage, pointing out areas in need of repair and talking about various methods of addressing the concerns. He was thorough in explaining his process and conclusions. The final report is extremely detailed and reflects his professionalism. I recommend him highly.

I recently accompanied Richard Alton on a home inspection and was very impressed. To visually see trouble areas was nice, but to get such a detailed report was very helpful in our decision process. The pictures are very clear and helps document everything that was a potential problem. We will definately use him again and recommend him to anyone that is looking for a quality home inspection!

Wonderful job! The report is very comprehensive. Richard was very flexible in scheduling the inspection.

Good job!

Attention to detail was unremarkable. Felt like Dick was inspecting his OWN house. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspection.
