Ryan did a great job on our inspection. He was very thorough and knowledgable. He took a great deal of time showing us everything he found and explaining both why it was of concern and what steps needed to be taken to correct the issue. We felt Ryan went above and beyond and his great customer service is why we will recommend him to others and use him again in the future. We were also very pleased that he gave us his phone number and encouraged us to call him any time we had questions (about anything) in the future. Thank you Ryan for a job very well done!

Ryan always returns my phone calls, arrives early for the inspection appointments, is polite, honest, knowledgeable, thorough, informative, explaining things in such as way that everyone can understand & patient with all questions aksed, no matter how many. I believe that a building inspection done by Ryan Heyl is always going to be in the best intrest of my clients.
- W.D., April 2011
Ryan did our inspection in a very professional matter. He's very thorough and detailed about his inspections. He went through everything step by step with us and answered our questions about current problems and explained how to prevent any future problems with the home. He also explained everything that he felt that we should discuss with our realtor concerning the home, before we buy the house. Ryan was the best home inspector that I have ever dealt with. I have had previous home inspectors that were not informative when you ask them questions. Other inspectors that I have dealt with always state that I will be able to read everything in their report. Ryan took the time to go over everything with us and answer any questions we had, while he was there in the home. Since Ryan was very thorough with us, we felt much more comfortable about going back to our realtor to renegotiate the home price and what we felt needed to be fixed before going forward with the purchase of the home.
- M.A., April 2011
You did a great job Ryan, you were thorough, competent and patient. I am very satisfied with your work today.
- B.H., March 2011
Great job, glad you were there. You did a Thoreau job. Thanks for all you help.
