Licensed Florida Home Inspector HI4668


Robert met all of my needs for the home inspection. HIs findings were accurate, complete and very well explained.
- R.R., Tallahassee Flo, January 2018
Rob did an excellent inspection. He was so kind as to explain each aspect of the inspection which gave me great peace of mind in the purchase of my new home.
- L.M., Tallahassee FL, December 2017
Excellent customer care! Rob was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. He arrived early and was professional throughout the entire inspection. He was EXTREMELY informative and walked me and my family through all of his findings in detail (he even offered to draw pictures if we needed!). He even followed up the next day after conducting further research on permits for the property. I would recommend Rob to anyone in need of a quality, friendly home inspector!
- M.H., November 2017
Rob was very thorough and treated this inspection very seriously. This is the second time we have used his services, the first time was a home we liked very much and we're ready to take ownership till his inspection uncovered a serious termite problem which would have caused us a bigger investment than we were able to afford, Thankyou very much Rob for your professionalism and attention to detail.
- E.R., November 2017
Rob was fantastic during my home inspection. As a first time home buyer, there were several things that needed explanation. He answered any questions I had and went through each area of assessment with me. Because I was also able to be there during the inspection, he was able to physical point out the areas he was referring to in his report. I would certainly recommend Rob!
- A.T., November 2017
Rob was so thorough and explained his findings just as if he were the homeowner himself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
- L.O., October 2017
Consummate professional! Fantastic job. Made me feel a lot better about many concerns I had. I would and will recommend him in a heartbeat! Thank you Rob!

Rob did an awesome job! Very thorough and he did a nice job of explaining everything to us after the inspection. Will definitely use again.
- D.G., September 2017
As a first time homebuyer, I had questions and boy did I have them. I had researched the web but there really was no need to. Ron was a godsend! He was very approachable, very knowledgeable and overall a great personality. His professionalism was ultimately a 10! He explained everything to me and was very detail-oriented. At no point did I feel uncomfortable or uncertain about the process. His inspection report was very extensive and he left no stone unturned. Also, being able to pay online and view your report was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend Ron for your future inspections! Thanks again!

- S.T., Savannah GA, June 2017
Mr. Detwiler was so incredibly thorough, and he explained everything he found with a clear indication of whether it was a big problem or just a small fix.

Robert was very professional and helpful, and we would highly recommend his services for anyone wanting a home inspection. He surpassed our expectations! Jim and Mary Parry
- J.P., March 2017
As a first time homebuyer I was intimidated by the inspection process. Rob immediately put me at ease with his great sense of humor and vast knowledge. Rob went through his findings with me in detail. He also took me to the section of the house that had the problem so that I could see it for myself. He was very thorough and patient with me when I asked questions. He told me to contact him for any questions I may have after reviewing the home inspection report. He sent it to us the same day as the inspection was done. I cannot say enough good things about Rob! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, and honest home inspector!
- N.B., Tallahassee FL, March 2017
I was unable to make the inspection but my Wife had great comments from Rob about his work and was able to answer questions. I would recommend him to anyone

I have used Rob Detwiler for four different home inspections and associated follow up re-inspections over the past year and a half. Rob is professional, thorough, considerate, and dependable. His home inspections provide a thorough, accurate, and understandable assessment of the physical condition of the prospective home. If there was ever a question about an issue identified in the inspection, Rob took the time to answer all my questions about the matter.
- P.M., April 2016
Robert does a great job. He is very professional and thorough. He is knowledgeable in every aspect of the property being inspected and is willing to explain the highlights to the potential buyer that makes them feel confident that they have been properly informed.
- R.T., April 2016
Robert did a great job. The report he generated was very detailed with great pictures that clearly showed any issues. He also made recommendations on potential issues that may occur in the future and how to prevent them. As first time home buyers, we are very happy with the services he provided.
- M.S., April 2016
Having some experience with home remodeling and repair, I was glad that Robert was willing to talk to me about all the things he was going to inspect. He also spent some time telling me about the few things he was unable to inspect, but what I could do to protect myself...i.e. the dryer vent that goes up through a roof vent. The list he follows is very detailed and covers everything I would do for myself. However, when buying my OWN house, I might forget a few things in the excitement of getting a new home. So, having a caring professional who can objectively conduct an inspection was a great relief for me. I would definitely recommend Rob for anyone wanting a comprehensive and professional inspection.
- R.B., March 2016
Robert did a great job looking over the house. Knew what to look for and helpful in answering any questions we had with the inspection afterwards.
- L.W., March 2016
Thank you for your professional and thorough inspection. The money spent was well worth it! I saved thousands by renegotiating with the seller on a new air conditioner. I am responsible with the other issues you found, but now I have a blue print of what work needs to be done. Thanks Again, Roger
- R.D., March 2016
Made a scary process not so scary. Explained everything clearly and detailed. Willing to answer any questions even days after the inspection was done. Had my report the same day and it was exactly everything he had explained no hidden items.

I was very impressed with the thoroughness of your report, both inside and out. I would certainly recommend you to others who were in need of a home inspector.

I would appreciate it if this oversight was corrected and thanks again for your excellent services.

- P.B., June 2015
I highly recommend him. He did the inspection for my mom's house and my townhome. Very detail and will take time to explain everything to you.
