- J.R., March 2017
Waylon was early to the inspection, which was wonderful! Before beginning the inspection, he explained to me how it would work. I was very appreciative of the detailed report he sent after the inspection was complete. It was very easy to follow and explained in great detail everything he found during the inspection.

This inspection service by Chris was outstanding. He found issues with the home that I had overlooked on my previous two walkthroughs of the property, despite my years of engineering and construction experience. And that's before he got down into the crawl space! From minor, to major, he did a comprehensive report (that I received on the same day), and proves to be one of the best values for my money ever. Thank you Chris.
- D.B., February 2017
