It was very easy to communicate with Joel from the beginning. He was on time and did a thorough inspection, went over the highlights of his findings with us on site, and then sent a detailed report with lots of pictures within hours. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection!

I had great experience working with Joel. From the start of scheduling the appointment, to the punctuality, and his excellence in detail oriented inspection was fantastic. With his help we have been able to re-evaluate the property and deal. I highly recommend his service.

Thank you Joel for the thorough inspection work and report. You stayed focus at your job inspite of all the distraction with family there making noise and running around.

I am afraid you will become too busy and not as available as you have been. Keep up the good work.

Joel did a fantastic job explaining everything in great detail about our prospective home. Very easy to talk to and understand. Did a extensive inspection even including stuffing himself into a spider infested attic. Wouldn't hesitate to recomend him or the company to anyone I know. Great job.

Hi Joel, I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection, as well as the report you provided within 18 hours of the job. The number of photos and the comments attached to each one were extremely helpful. I would highly recommend your services to anyone that I know who may be looking to have a property inspected. Thank you! Dan

Joel was very detailed in his inspection - He checked every nook and cranny. If we wouldn't have had his inspection, we might have been in a very poor situation. He was very dilligent, personable, and gave us the information we needed to make a smart decision.
