as always great job...
- M.M., June 2018
Very thorough - patient and helpful with questions!
- K.B., Cypress TX, April 2018
One of the best experiences I have ever had with an inspection. This is the 5th home I have purchased since 2005 and tried to buy 2 others, so have had 7 inspections in that time and this was hands down the best one. I have never had an inspection that included measuring the foundation level and using infrared on the walls to check for leaks or other issues, all for the same cost as a basic inspection with other companies. Darren the inspector was very thorough, explained everything clearly with the few issues that were found, he explained that due to the age of the house that some items were grandfathered in, he made recommendations for a few items that needed to be repaired, and was very professional and pleasant. With past inspections, the inspectors always made things out to be major dramas and because of their drama made my inspections very stressful. The inspection with Darren was not stressful at all. I will recommend Top 2 Bottom to anyone I know looking for an inspection and will use you again if I ever buy another home.
- S.M., Katy TX, April 2017
John did a great job and was very helpful. He let us tag along on the inspection and gave us some great insight into the home, area and community.
- T.B., March 2017
John and Darren are always on the ball! They find every problem even the minor ones. The only problem is that they are too good.
- M.R., August 2016
Professional and very thorough
- R.D., February 2016
Inspection was easily and flexibly scheduled. Inspector was extremely helpful, patient and informative. The price was fair, and the report was very detailed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Top2Bottom to anyone in need of an inspection.
- Z.S., February 2016
Chris was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and very thorough. He gave a detailed explanation of all items and the final report was delivered on time. I would absolutely recommend Top 2 Bottom to future home buyers.
- R.L., January 2016
Thanks and great job.
- S.S., January 2016
Every question I had was answered in a way anyone could understand. I hate those responses that insult my intelligence & leave you knowing they aren't gonna tell you the truth. No matter how hard you try. The gentleman has decades of experience with home builders & it shows. Cannot say enough good things about the excellent & honest report I received.
- J.P., Brookshire TX, December 2015

- K.K., July 2015
Chuck did a great job. He was on time (early) and very thorough.
- J.S., July 2015
This is the second inspection John and his crew has done for me. I was not satisfied with the first inspection but he came out and fixed it right away. He was professional and objective and I appreciate that he does stand by his company and wants customers to be happy. The second report was much better and really needed no revisions although there were a couple items that I think may have helped if they were included. If you want someone who cares about his customers, I would say John is very good. With any inspector, I would go behind them and look, listen and ask questions. I've learned a lot. Thanks John and Chris.
- A.L., July 2015
Chris did an excellent job! The seller was well informed of the inspection time but was at the house at when the inspection took place. Chris was very polite about asking her to step out so we can discuss the inspection in privacy. Chris walked us through the list at the end and explained all the issues in great detail and how to address them. I would like to point out that Chris checked the foundation with a special machine that allows for a plan to be provided. This plan allows you to see the movement in the foundation, if any, and how much it has moved. Thanks you Chris!
- Y.R., July 2015
Chris was thorough, and addressed all of the buyer's questions and concerns. Overall an excellent job.
- A.G., Houston TX, July 2015
Did a great job, showed up on time and was very thorough.
- B.E., July 2015
Our inspector, Chuck, did a great job. He was very thorough and knowledgeable, and answered all my questions. The report was very helpful with pictures, descriptions of issues and suggestions. I would highly recommend Chuck and top to bottom inspections.
- E.W., July 2015
Timing to issue the report was critical and Top 2 Bottom delivered on it! Chuck conducted the inspection. He is efficient, expertise, quality of the report has exceeded expectations. I would use this company again and recommend them to anyone.
- J.M., June 2015
Vary detailed and professional
- B.L., June 2015
Great job- prompt report. thanks!
- A.D., June 2015
I was very pleased with Mr. Onofrey's work. I recommend him. Regards.
- N.C., May 2015
I had 2 inspections done, and while the other inspector did a great job as well, he failed to comment on a major structural issue that Chris identified (pier placed in between floor joists not supporting any load).
- S.M., May 2015
Very good job and appreciated the thorough report that was sent.
- B.C., May 2015

Very professional and courteous!
- R.I., April 2015
The inspector was punctual and very thorough. The inspection report was well compiled with clear pictures and notes. I would recommend their services to anyone.
- D.S., April 2015
I loved how you inspected everything
- A.G., April 2015
I have seen John's business grow over the last couple of years, and am always concerned when new folks join an established group. However in this case got to work with a new inspector and everything went amazing. Was professional, thorough and personable. Would gladly use again and will suggest if possible.
- B.R., April 2015
Inspector was very professional and thorough. I was comfortable with his presentation and expertise. I am confident that he did a good job and that his recommendations were honest and inline with client best interest.
- m.C., April 2015
Great service, fast and precise. I reccommend John to all first time home buyers.

The home inspection performed by Top 2 Bottom Inspections was performed by Chuck Pogue. Chuck was on-time and professional. He checked all parts of the house and provided me with an accurate assessment of the potential issues, including photographs and descriptions. I would recommend Top 2 Bottom Inspections to family and friends.
- G.V., March 2015
Excellent work. Would surely recommend to others. Chuck was a true professional and the final report reflected that.
- D.M., March 2015
Chris saved us from buying a nightmare. That home on Cheaney needed so much work and the seller was not going to fix anything. Again we would like to thank Chris for doing such a fantastic job. We now have another home in Bear Creek on Pattiglen if they take our offer. We would enjoy to have Chris do the inspection. Thank you again John & Martha Treul
- J.T., March 2015
I called last minute to set up an inspection on behalf of a client and John was able to set it up for the next morning. The reports are always very easy to read. Thanks John.
- C.B., March 2015
Chris did a great job! Very Thorough! Thanks Guys
- P.C., March 2015
I was helped by Chris. He did an excellent job and was very helpful. Answered all my questions and gave detailed explanations on everything he found.
- T.L., March 2015
Second Home Inspection your company has done for me and both inspectors were very informative and professional.
- C.V., March 2015
I was very pleased with the quality of service from Top2Bottom, and their prices were competitive with or lower than many other inspection companies in the Houston area. It was also convenient that their inspectors are certified to perform the termite, pool, and HVAC inspections, saving having to have multiple different personnel out to perform inspections. They saved us from purchasing a property with some significant deficiencies, and I used them on our second choice without hesitation.
- J.M., February 2015
Very thorough and fair. Good inspection.
- J.M., February 2015
I am a first time home buyer and I was very impressed with the way the inspection was done and how thorough the report was. I would definitely recommend anyone buying or selling a home to utilize his services.
- M.C., February 2015
He was great and a big help. Took the time to explain questions and walk the buyer through everything.
- S.C., February 2015
Very prompt, professional, and thorough inspection.
- J.M., February 2015
Very efficient, took the time to show my client the particulars about the house, level-headed and practical in findings, received the report the next day.
- C.F., Katy TX, February 2015
On time, thorough, courteous, explained everything, and was patient with all of my questions. Home was recently remodeled and we needed to be sure it was all done correctly and there was nothing missing. Found several items the contractors had left undone or poorly done in the attic and roof that were safety issues. Highly recommend, well worth it!
- M.M., February 2015
Chuck Pogue did the inspection for us. He is very knowledgeable and clearly explained everything at the property. His detailed report was easy to understand and efficient. We highly recommend Top 2 Bottom Inspections for anyone. In the past, I had several issues with home inspections with different individuals and small time companies, but John Onofrey and his team are the ones to hire for peace and comfort for your dream home. Robin Elackatt
- R.E., February 2015

Chuck was courteous, professional and thorough. I felt very confident in his knowledge, experience, and expertise. I highly recommend his services.
- J.R., May 2014

- N.A., May 2014
Very helpful and friendly!
- C.C., April 2014
I have used John's service for two home inspections so far. The 2nd one is just as good as the first one. We use his report before the house is purchased. I have been pleased with the thoroughness of his inspections and will always use the reports to get repairs or remodeling done once the house is purchased.
- B.G., January 2014
John arrived at the scheduled time. Took time to explain as he went through the home his findings. Ask if I had any questions or concerns regarding the home. I would definitely recommend John.
- M.H., December 2013
John and Chris were outstanding. Very professional, thorough, and timely. I'd recommend Top 2 Bottom to anyone looking for a home inspector.
- K.K., August 2013
Inspector was great! He explained everything in detail! Very friendly as well.
- J.C., July 2013
John did a great and thorough job! He was readily available and scheduling our inspection was quick. He was timely and explained all the "discoveries" of our new home thoroughly so that we left leaving confident about our purchase. Would highly recommend him to a friend as we hope to not move again! :o)
- M.D., April 2013
Chuck Pogue was the assigned contractor that completed the inspection for me... To put it in plain wordsâ?¦. A true Professional that takes Pride in what he does! A+ If I had met him prior to going into contract on this home, I would have hired him to build me a custom homeâ?¦. It was a pleasure!
- A.S., March 2013
Chuck Pogue was our inspector and did a great job. Very thorough and explained everything clearly.
- M.S., February 2013
Mr. Onofrey and Mr. Chuck completed my first home inspection with a spirit of excellence and thoroughness that is rarely seen these days. No detail was left unnoticed. If there was something noticed or suggested that was outside their workscope they made sure to bring it to my attention. I would highly recommend Top 2 Bottom Inspections to anyone and everyone! Thanks again guys! -Ogden
- O.M., February 2013
In my over 25 years as a Realtor I have never come across a more professional and thorough inspector. Thank you John
- J.M., February 2013

John is very approachable, experienced and thorough inspector. His services are competitively priced which makes it a win win for my clients.

Overall, I think he is one of the best guys in town!
