Rick Newton and his son, Shane couldn't be nicer to work with. They are thorough, friendly and detail-oriented. While it's nice if buyers can let them do their work with as little comment as possible, Rick and Shane are happy to stop what they're doing to explain and/or discuss anything that might come up. They begin by explaining what they'll do, how they'll do it and then sit down and review all issues found during the inspection. They make inspection time a pleasure!

The thoroughness and quality of the inspection is amazing. Rick and Shane Newton are exceptional at their job, and they also happen to be delightful, caring people. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful experience for their home inspection. They gave us a ton of confidence that we understand all the details about what we're buying. Thank you both!

Rick and his son were very professional from the start. They explained what was going to take place before beginning. This was very helpful because my wife and I are buying from out of state and he made us comfortable knowing the job would be thorough. They also took the time to explain how certain aspects of the house worked that we were unfamiliar with. In the end, I felt the house recieved a very complete inspection. The report contained great quality photos and was well written. He and his son make a great team.

Superb inspection. Very professional. Rick and Shane were at the house checking the condition of exterior before I arrived. Having two inspectors was nice because the inspection was completed in under 90 minutes. I received a digital report detailing the results of the inspection later that evening Highly recommended!

Efficient, always on time, detailed, informative, customer service oriented. Always does a good job, takes time after the inspection to review with the home buyer with any questions or follow up. Points out the deficiencies and problem areas especially unseen or unknown issues, and to follow up with professionals when needed.

We are so fortunate to have you inspect the house we're hoping to buy. You were so thorough and instructive. As first-time home buyers we're not up on all the things that go into keeping a house functioning properly, so your bits of advice were very appreciated. The report was quick in coming, and with the photos pointing out what needed to be repaired, there was no puzzlement at all. We have recommended you to our Real Estate Agent, and will to all our friends needing an inspector whose integrity is outstanding.
Best of luck in all things,
Kim and Kathleen Babb
