Testimonials

Chris was excellent. He did a very thorough inspection. He explained everything and answered all questions. I feel confident that I can proceed with my purchase with confidence. In the past year I have purchased a vacation home and sold a residence. Each time I dealt with home inspectors. None of they did as good a job as Chris. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone in need of a home inspection.

I?ve bought and sold a number of houses and buildings in my career. Have had numerous inspections. I?ve never been part of such a thorough but not alarmist building inspection. The way Chris goes about inspection is systematic and complete. And in the end you will know whether to buy or not, and you will have a blueprint for how to maintain and improve your property which you can use as a checklist over the course of the life of the property. The document you receive will become the Bible for your home or property. And it?s always best to deal with a family business. Their name is on their product so you can be assured they stand behind it. Doesn?t get better than this in this field.
