Robert is a thorough, conscientious, and personable home inspector. He made sure that I understood every point mentioned on the inspection report and provided great details on the home. I can easily recommend him for any of your home inspection needs in the Tallahassee area!

Bob was extremely thorough and very nice to work with. He put everything in easy-to-understand terms and answered all my questions. The report I received detailed all issues found, along with photos and suggested fixes. I highly recommend Bob and his firm to anyone seeking a similar inspection.
- B.M., August 2022
Rob was recommended to me by his fellow inspector. He did an excellent job with my 4 point inspection & a week later had to come back for the wind mitigation inspection. He even found a leak at the water meter caused by the roots of the big tree near the meter. Thankfully he saw it & that problem is now fixed. He did not mind coming back, gave me a generous discount, friendly, professional, hard working, knowledgeable, & a great person to work with.
- M.E., August 2022
Rob is the best! He's prompt, efficient, and very thorough. He even found a leak and a seal that needed repair even though they were not part of this inspection. I will always call Rob for our inspections.
- C.G., May 2022
I found out about Rob through a friend of a family member; that friend I have never met. On a leap of faith, I called, had a very nice thoughtful conversation, our philosophies aligned, and I believed Rob would ensure I knew what I was getting into as a result of his home inspection. I was blown away by his flexibility and professionalism, community resources, inspection detail and the follow-up service with the HomeGauge application. I had a perfect experience. The value provided for the cost is well worth it and I would feel confident in recommending Rob to anyone who needs a home inspection without a doubt.
- B.B., April 2022

- J.W., Tallahassee FL, February 2022
Inside & Out did an inspection for a home I'm buying. Rob did an awesome job! He was very thorough with his inspection and his finished report was easy to understand! I met him once he finished the inspection and he took time to talk me through his report and told me to call him at anytime if I had more questions. I would recommend Inside & Out to anyone needing a thorough inspection!!
- T.C., July 2021
Rob is a stress saver! He inspected our house before we bought it. Then, a contractor had me afraid my house was going to fall apart I called Rob out to give me a clearer opinion. He is very professional and doesn’t use scare tactics. He explains things thoroughly so that you know exactly what needs to be done when he leaves. He came highly recommended and now I see why!
- T.H., June 2021
Very nice and willing to answer any questions about the inspection.
- L.V., April 2021
Great Job, Thanks Rob Rob is very good at finding out if the home he is looking at is worth buying. Most places are there to just look and fill out a report. Rob is looking to make sure the place is going to be standing in 10 or 15 years. If you want to know the condition of a home, call Rob,

Robert Detwiler (Rob) was the inspector from Inside and Out Property Inspectors who inspected the house we were trying to purchase. Rob was on time for this appointment and professional with us and the other people who were present during this event. We found Rob to be very helpful in explaining what he saw and was patient with our questions. He went through the house and did a very thorough job of reviewing every facet of this home. Rob turned around the report in a timely fashion so we were able to use it in our contingency contract negotiations. I would not hesitate to use Rob again or to recommend others use his service as well.
- C.M., October 2020
Does a great job telling it how it is without creating problems for both buyers and sellers!
- M.L., Tallahassee FL, September 2020

Rob performed a home inspection, a four point inspection, and a radon test for me. He was highly competent and did thorough and well-documented inspections. Rob also answered all of my questions and explained things in a simple way without being condescending about it. As a first-time homebuyer, I really appreciated that. I also appreciated the recommendations he made regarding repairs that needed to be completed and maintenance of the various systems in the house. I'd absolutely recommend him to other people.
- B.B., July 2020
Rob is an expert inspector! He not only impressed me with his competence, but also my realtor. She is going to use him in the future. This is the second property Rob has inspected for me in the last five years. He is thorough, prompt, accommodates your schedule and is very pleasant and patient.
- M.C., July 2020
Robert did an excellent job on our home inspection. He was extremely thorough, straight forward and upfront throughout the entire inspection. His findings and recommendations were spot on and way more helpful in our decision to purchase the house than we ourselves could have observed and/or asked for. Robert has a reputation of not only being meticulous, truthful, accurate and sincere in his inspections and reports but he also has a hard to find unique gift of providing proficient, considerate and caring customer service. If you want it done right the first time, every time, we recommend Robert Detwiler of Inside and Out Property Inspections, Inc.
- H.M., July 2020
Robert did a very thorough inspection, was professional, and made me feel secure with my decision to purchase my new house. I would highly recommend him. Thanks again Robert?? Kathy S
- K.S., Tallahassee FL, June 2020
I was very pleased with the inspection. The house had many problems and it was "as is" , so i could not buy the house . I did not realize that the home owner would require me to repair the holes put in the house in wood rot locations made by inside and out. Was i a dumb bunny for signing the standard real estate contract? Was i suppose to tell Robert not to inspect for wood rot until after the WDO inspection was done the same day? I thought i was hiring someone that knew about real estate. I obviously do not .
- D.C., Tallahassee FL, June 2020
Rob was very thorough with the inspection. He made valid suggestions and was very helpful. Rob answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone buying a home. He sure gave me a piece of mind.

He takes his time to make sure to go over everything with you, big and small, and to answer any questions you have.

Based on his reports we were able to make informed decisions and were able to negotiate intelligently with the sellers. We will definitely use Rob again and recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking into purchasing a home!

Good Morning Rob, I just want to say thank you for the professionalism, courteous attitude in the manner to which you treated and assured my wife and I that you would be thorough in your inspection process. You did all of that, from start to finish you explained what you was going to do and then followed through in doing just that.

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.
