He was very thorough and helpful.
- S.R., August 2019
I was very pleased with how thorough Paul's inspection was, as well as with the level of detail in his report. He is very professional and does a wonderful job of explaining potential issues and making sure you are aware of what they may mean for you as the buyer. I would absolutely recommend Paul to a friend. Thank you again!

I left a review when we first bough our house that he?d been great to work with and although he was, he completely failed to address that one of the bathroom ceilings was covered in mold. When my husband asked about it he said it was just dirt in the paint. Now we have a nightmare in our hands. If you do use Paul go with your gut and insist on that your worry be addressed even until you have peace of mind. As first time buyers we really didn?t know any better so we trusted everything he said. The picture of the ceiling wasn?t even in our report or even mentioned in it.
- C.B., June 2019
Paul was thorough not only in the inspection, but also in explaining what he was doing, and why, as well as answering questions throughout the process. Report was clear and sent out so efficiently. Great to have an inspector like him!
- C.H., June 2019
Really nice guy to work with and very thorough.
- P.S., April 2019
Thorough and informative.
- M.A., December 2018
He was great and his report is very thorough. He talked to us as he was working point out things that needed fixing and offering solutions both for short term and long term which was really helpful.
- C.B., August 2018
Paul was extremely knowledgeable and willing to share any information he had with me as he conducted the inspection. He was thorough and detailed and took his time. When questions came up, Paul went out of his way to answer them and assure that I had the information needed. Overall the process was great, and I feel like I know the home I am moving into much better than I did prior to the inspection.
- B.R., July 2018
First, Paul was early for our appointment, which is nice. He was inviting and more than willing to have me follow along with his inspection. He stopped to show me what he was looking at along the way. Proactively explained pros and cons of different systems and was more than willing to answer and discuss any questions I had. He respected the property (ex. using different shoes inside and out) and brought all of his own equipment. His inspection seemed very thorough and his demeanor was very professional. He delivered his inspection report the same day. I would recommend Paul's services to others.
- W.K., July 2018
I was super pleased with the detail as well as knowledge of Paul Hughet. I felt like he took time to talk to me, make sure I understood, and answer any questions. I am going into the purchase of my new home with what I consider a working plan of small projects to take care of in the future. I?m super confident in my plans going forward thanks to the inspection result! I would definitely refer him to a friend.
- L.C., June 2018

Thank you, Paul, for a comprehensive report on the property you inspected for me. Your comments at the time of the inspection were clear and concise, so that I understood the condition of the home.

- S.D., August 2017
Paul was recommended to us by our real estate agent, and we were very happy with his services. The inspection was thorough, and he took the time to go through every little detail with us. Because we are first time home buyers, and don't know all the right questions to ask, he was very forthcoming with information and offered a lot of information without us needing to grill him. He was a pleasure to work with!
- E.B., July 2017
I currently live out of state and Paul was recommended by my realtor. My dad is a retired civil engineer for one of the cities where I live and has seen many of these reports. Both my dad and I were quite impressed with the thoroughness of Paul's report and the speed with which he provided it to me. Should I buy or build another house within Paul's region of business I will definitely use his expertise, again. I also plan on recommending Paul to anyone I know buying or building a home!

I appreciate Paul's systematic and thorough approach to the work . His style and grounded knowledge greatly increased my comfort level about this property. I feel the time and effort were well worth the compensation. I really like the report format, clarity and precise photographic detail provided.

- P.R., February 2017
Paul was a pleasure to work with! He was extremely thorough and patient with us as he completed the inspection on our first home.

Thanks so much for your inspection services on our future home yesterday! I liked the fact you explained the details of the property and offered ideas on reasonable fixes when necessary.

- R.M., August 2015
I have previously had home inspections, but none were as thorough as the one done by Paul. He answered my questions and never made me feel awkward or silly for asking questions. He addressed my concerns and me feel really good about the whole process. I would never want to buy another house without having Paul look at it first!

Being first time homeowners, we appreciated how thorough and professional Paul was. It was extremely helpful to us that he had sample reports on his website so we had an idea of what to expect. He encouraged us to ask questions, and his answers were satisfying. His pleasant manner and humor got us through the process. His inspection report was helpful in not only seeing defects but what general maintenance items we should handle to extend the life and quality of the home.

Paul and Capitol Inspection Services was suggested to us by the realtor we were working with and we were quite pleased with his inspection. He was quite personable and friendly as well as incredibly thorough. He walked us through all the details of his evaluation and suggestions as he went through the house and all were detailed in the final report. We appreciated his attentiveness to detail.
- L.B., February 2015
I called a lot of possible inspectors and Paul mentioned many of the things I was looking for in the first call. The longer we spoke I could sense he had the right balance between good attention to detail regarding serious issues and not being overly concerned about what are simply cosmetic or simple issues.
