My last home inspection I would consider a bad experience. I did some research myself to find you and made the choice off your website. From that point forward I was very impressed with you availability and response time. I appreciated your guidance through the inspection and believed your inspection was detailed and complete. The special tools (infrared and microwave bar) helped show the detail and documented your finding. The most beneficial thing for me will be your detailed report with picture. I love that it is in my e-mail and can be accessed in the future to continue working on the little suggestions you gave that would typically be forgotten. Thanks for your time and professionalism. I also appreciated your response after you left the property and your job was completed. It is nice to know you are accessible even as you move onto other tasks. Thanks Eric and Jackie Sullivan
- E.S., September 2017
Thanks for doing a great job Jon! Our clients decided to not move forward based on your findings. They appreciated the in-depth look and extra time you gave the house. The report and pictures were helpful and informative, not too confusing. We would recommend you to others.
- L.S., September 2017

Using Navigator Home Inspection was the best decision we made when buying a house. Jon does a fantastic, thorough job and the best part is how easy and comprehensive the report summary is to use and refer too. We had a great time reviewing the report in person with Jon which he does with patience and expertise. We really can't say enough good things! He also gave us tips and recommendations on who to contact concerning some of the points in the report, which all also turned into good experiences as well. Getting a home inspection is essential and we certainly recommend Jon Kline with enthusiasm. - Holly and Steven

Hi Jon, Great work on the Ashmun property. Appreciated the common sense approach for a house of this age and condition. I've had inspectors in the past overreact to nearly every deficiency. It was a relief to have an inspection that highlighted the serious issues with side notations on minor stuff. Take care, Jared and Annette

He does an exceptionally thorough job. He inspects from the roof down to the slab, inside and out.I love the pictures and comments explaining what is normal maintenance or a one-time fix and where the shutoff valves are located. I saw first hand the inspection he did for the buyers of my house so I hired him to do the inspection on the house I was buying.
