I found your inspection to be very thorough. I also appreciated the information as far as location of gas shut off water shut off etc. thank you for the timely report. I would definitely recommend you to anyone needing a home inspection.

After reading Facebook group recommendations, we contacted Jeff on a Monday to schedule a home inspection and were surprised he had openings over the weekend. However, we deferred until Monday due to our schedule. Jeff arrived early and was very friendly. We walked around the property as we waited for the RE agent to arrive to open the house. Jeff explained items he had already observed as I asked questions about items that were my greatest concern. He was very thorough and answered all of my questions. The inspection report was available the next day. However, I did not understand the backflow preventer was not included as part of the inspection process, so my only suggestion would be to inform customers of that at the outset of the inspection or before. Despite this, still very satisfied with using Jeff.

Mr. Triphahn did an incredible job inspecting our first home and we couldn't be more pleased. Very thorough and knowledgeable of all components of the home, inside and out. Thanks!

Jeff is professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and honest. In addition, he was very flexible in scheduling the inspection. I was most impressed with his attention to detail and he seemed to be equally adept at finding issues with all functions and systems of the home. I have already recommended him to friends, something I have never done before despite experience with perhaps eight inspectors. None has ever impressed me until Jeff.

Neither myself nor my agent were able to be present for the inspection, but I received the report immediately, and was highly impressed. Even though I have not spoken to Jeff except via email, I have been impressed from the beginning of the process. He and the company are organized, professional, quick, and knowledgeable. I did not have any reason to doubt the report, and I felt as though everything was covered thoroughly. This is my second home purchase and 4th property I've had inspected, but is by far the best inspector/inspection company I have used. I will absolutely recommend Jeff and HomeGauge to my family and friends.

As a first-time home owner, I appreciated the explanations of the areas and items being inspected, as well as the recommendations on how to resolve/mitigate the issues that were found. Very thorough and professional job!
- C.M., August 2017
Very, very thorough and willing to explain everything. Also answered all questions. Very satisfied and happy. Thanks!!!
- N.D., June 2017
This was my second time around buying a house and I was very impressed with Jeff's work compared to the first time. In particular, the photos provided in the report made it very easy to identify issues to the seller with no chance for miscommunication. He was also very persistent in gathering all the information he needed. For example, the water heater in the condo he inspected was in a difficult-to-reach location, but he still managed to get the manufacturer's information off the plate. Thanks, Jeff!
- N.G., June 2017
Jeff was easy to work with and prompt on scheduling. He answered all the questions during the inspections, walking us through each item in detail. I would be happy to work with him again and highly recommmend him.

I have used Jeff on a number of occasions. My clients truly appreciate the thoroughness of his inspections. Jeff takes the time to discuss items found during the inspection with my clients to ensure they have a clear understanding of the items. I look forward to recommending Jeff to my future clients.

Thank you very much Jeff for the exceptional work, we truly appreciate it. I would highly recommend you to my neighbors, family, and friends.

As a first time home buyer, I wanted to be present at the inspection, mainly for the learning experience. A big thanks for taking the time to explain what you saw to me and answering any questions I had. I would highly recommend you guys for anyone in need of a home inspection.
- S.T., January 2017
Jeff was very thorough and we would definitely recommend him to our friends!
- B.C., November 2016
Jeff did an outstanding job and we were very happy with his service. Jeff took the time to go over his report with me and point out all the potential issues. His report was well written and provided pictures of all of the issues noted. I would definitely use him again or recommend him to any of my friends that may be looking for an excellent home inspector.
- R.N., September 2016
Jeff was very professional and thorough in his inspection. He went beyond my espectations returning to the home we wish to purchase to work with the owner on a couple of repair issues that are important to us
- M.G., August 2016
I wish we could have been on-site for the inspection. Barring this, I wish we could have been on Skype with you during the inspection. I appreciate the time you took to really check out the home for us. It was a real eye opener how much we didn't see or hear about from our realtor that you picked up on. Obviously we didn't expect our realtor to go into the detail search that you did but even just the basic things like leaky faucets and broken screens were something we didn't know anything about!
- M.D., August 2016
With our recent move to the Low Country area having Jeff do our Home Inspection gave us the confidence we needed for moving forward in our new home! He is awesome, both professional and personable, willing to take the time to review, explain his report and was available for any post questions we had! We have already recommended him to others and will continue to do so. Thank you Jeff!
- R.S., July 2016
Thank you for making the inspection about quality over quantity. You gave us your complete attention and time. You were patient, very willing to explain all issues, and went out of your way to consult with other specialists to give us the most thorough report possible. Thank you for your time and we will definitely be using you again for our next inspection.
- L.W., July 2016
Jeff was a true professional to do business with. His patience with our multitude of questions and the ability to explain things in terms we could easily understand made this inspection stand out amongst others we've done in the past. He was very honest and forthcoming with issues he encountered while reviewing the property, and also took the time to show us how everything worked along the way. Jeff would be the first one I'd call if I would need an inspection in the future, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his company to anyone I knew. Thank you, Jeff, for such a positive experience!
- J.M., July 2016
Jeff is an 'attention to detail guy". That's exactly what you need for this job. Thanks Jeff!
- B.G., June 2016
Although, I personally did not have the opportunity to meet Mr. Triphahn; the realtor spoke warm fuzzies to say "I felt he did a thorough job with no complaints from me!". Thank you for honoring your scheduled date and arrival time.
- B.F., June 2016
Jeff was professional and thorough in his inspection. I will use his services for future inspections.
- P.C., Charleston SC, June 2016
Jeff did an excellent and thorough job inspecting my Client's future home. He is very knowledgeable and great at explaining his reports. I was especially impressed by his efficiency in sending the inspection report to my client. I will definitely use Jeff Triphahn with future clients!!

- T.J., Mount Pleasant SC, January 2016
Jeff did a very thorough job of inspecting our home. At the end of the inspection, Jeff gave us an overview of his findings. He explained each of the findings and which findings needed to be resolved ASAP. Jeff also met his commitment of when he said our report would be completed and available to us online. He is punctual, thorough and very professional. As a Realtor, I highly recommend Jeff to my clients and/or friends.

- E.P., October 2015
thorough, well-articulated report, photos labeled and encompassing, obvious attention to detail, the report itself seems to be repeated (or at least the photos are) as user scrolls down to end
