As an inspector with over 35 years experience, including an architectural degree, I bring an extensive knowledge base with me when I inspect your home.


You did such a thorough job for the buyers of our previous property that we wanted you to check out the house that we plan to buy. You did another thorough, great job.
- P.W., September 2018
Robert Foster with Trebor Home Inspections conducted a very thorough, professional inspection of the home I am buying. He spent a considerable amount of time testing and visually inspecting critical components of the house, and allowed me to follow along while he explained what he was doing each step of the way; he answered every question I asked in a patient and courteous manner. I have confidence that all deficiencies were identified, and that the potential ramifications of each was comprehensively detailed in the written report which Trebor provided me within hours after the inspection was completed. I don't hesitate in recommending his services.
- P.H., August 2018
Concise report. Helpful comments and photo documentation. Well thought out and presented in a useful manner.
- F.M., July 2018
Very detail oriented! Robert took the time to answer all our questions during the 3+ hour inspection. Friendly, patient, and experienced. Will highly recommend to friends and family.
- C.S., July 2018
Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and takes the time to explain things if you want/ask questions. He also reiterates that he is available to you after the inspection process for any questions (which I can certainly vouch for). I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone thinking about buying a home. You want to know what you're getting into!
- A.G., June 2018
Robert’s inspection was fantastic and I would highly recommend his services for anyone needing a property inspection. The inspection was very thorough and the report was very easy to read. The report made it very easy to negotiate with the seller to make necessary improvements. Top notch service. Fast and reliable.
- S.M., June 2018
I can't say enough good things about Robert's inspection. He is extremely detailed, very knowledgeable, and extremely helpful in pointing out issues, both those that can be modified and those that cannot. He focuses attention on aspects of the house that will require ongoing maintenance as well as changes that can alert one to problems that are brewing. His report was extremely helpful and I will print it out and keep it in a binder for future reference. I have had houses inspected in the past and I have never had such a helpful inspection done before.
- J.O., June 2018
This is the second time I have hired Robert Foster for a home inspection, and the experience both times was fantastic. He did a very thorough inspection, and the report was uploaded quickly and was easy to read. The best part was that I learned so much about what I was getting myself into with each house--but I also learned so much about houses in general. Robert is extremely knowledgeable and eager to answer questions, and he took the time to look in every nook and cranny, even to the very far corners of the crawlspace. I would (and do) highly recommend hiring Robert.
- C.B., May 2018
Robert Foster is the best home inspector we've worked with! He is incredibly thorough and took the time to make sure we understood everything in the report.
- S.M., May 2018
Robert Foster did a fantastic job. He was extremely careful and thorough. It's helpful that he distinguishes between different types of comments, too -- issues that should be taken into account in the purchase versus normal maintenance issues.
- M.K., May 2018
Robert did a fantastic job on our home inspection. He had incredible attention to detail in regards to every aspect of the house and was able to explain what he was looking for in simple, easy-to-understand terms. His reports was also very thorough, yet digestible to read. I would definitely recommend Robert to anyone looking for a high quality home inspector.
- C.T., April 2018
We've used four house inspectors in our home buying time. Robert definitely one of the best. He's thorough, and uses technology extremely well to communicate and provide evidence for the issues he discovers. This helps make the point to buyers. This includes images of the problems, video (audio -- "hear that popping sound, that's not good") and links to web articles that explain technical elements we weren't familiar with. No equivocation -- hire Robert for your inspector.
- E.B., March 2018
Robert was thorough, helpful, friendly, and quick - we really enjoyed working with him!
- J.H., March 2018
Robert was informative, professional, thorough and most importantly, patient. As first time home buyers, the process could be particularly confusing and stressful. Robert patiently explained every detail in an understandable manner, which made the process even enjoyable. I would recommend Robert to everyone and cannot say enough positive things about him and his inspections.
- C.C., March 2018
I wouldn't use anyone else other than Robert. He is absolutely the best. Smart, knowledgeable, thorough -- and I really appreciate the detailed, easy-to-access online report . Thanks!
- B.M., January 2018
Timely and very thorough. The report was very detailed and saved us from moving forward on a house that was ultimately not what we thought it was. Robert also took the time to have a call with us n short notice to answer some remaining questions we had. Wi HIGHLY recommend using him for his expertise and personal care.
- E.E., January 2018
Highly recommended! Super professional, knowledgeable and explains the process concerning the multitude of dynamic information gathered in a common sense and easily understandable manner. Please consider him in your next home inspection.
- M.C., December 2017
Mr. Foster did an incredible job and was extremely careful and thorough. I would defiantly recommend him to family and friends.
- J.K., December 2017
Robert did an outstanding job inspecting our property. He is extremely thorough in his examination and assessment of structural integrity, construction features and basic operating functions. While onsite, he takes the time to explain his approach and review his findings in great detail. The report he produces is also quite comprehensive and compiled in a way that is both easy to understand and quite helpful in identifying issues in need of more immediate attention and remediation. Moving to a new place can be a very stressful experience - especially when relocating to another state, as is the case with our family. Robert's professionalism, knowledge and expertise provided us with more than enough information we needed to feel more confident about our purchase decision, while offering insights that allowed us to become better acquainted and more comfortable with our new home. We highly recommend him when only the best will suffice for your next inspection project.

Robert was truly a professional and a wealth of knowledge. He was extremely thorough and took time to explain the what and the why for every detail of the inspection. He addressed my major concerns for the house and provided multiple ideas on how to best address the issues in the future without feeling pushy or overbearing. I would highly recommend him to anybody in the market for a reliable and trustworthy home inspector.
- T.C., November 2017
Robert was thorough, professional, and a delight to work with. The color coding on his report made the report easy to read and to understand. He took my concerns seriously. Coming from a construction family, I appreciate his integrity and the breadth of his knowledge.
- M.P., November 2017
Would recommend highly! I really appreciated the detail and follow-up.
- M.M., October 2017
Robert is personable, thorough, and experienced, and knows the community well, which was great for me as someone moving to town. Follows through, reports are ready when promised. Couldn't ask for more.
- M.L., October 2017
I was very impressed by Robert's thorough inspection and great communication. He came to me strongly recommended by friends, and I have no regrets! He was in touch before, during, and after the inspection, and went above and beyond. During the inspection, he took the time to notice even the tiniest of details. Instead of simply pointing out any deficiencies he noted, Robert also took the time to answer my questions, educate me about the different features in the home, and give me tips on how to plan for future maintenance and improvements. I appreciated his detailed and color-coded written report, which made it very easy to understand the state of the house and how best to prioritize repairs/remediations. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a thorough and honest inspection!
- C.A., September 2017
Robert Foster is a meticulous and detail-oriented home inspector. He systematically reviewed all home structures and systems and called our attention to everything from major deficiencies to minor maintenance items. He was communicative, approachable and a pleasure to interact with throughout the process. Robert identified many issues that were not apparent to the untrained eye and was able to clearly describe the issue itself and the level of concern the issue should raise. Finally, he delivered a written report that was clear and understandable. Robert's work was a critical factor in allowing us to fairly allocate to our seller the obligation to fix the key safety issues and deficiencies, while retaining for us as buyers the routine maintenance items and items that were more appropriately monitored and reviewed over time. Finally, Robert made himself readily available to discuss our questions after he sent us the report and offered to return to the property to evaluate remedial work done. As very experienced old home buyers, we can say that Robert is the best home inspector we have ever worked with, and we would highly recommend Robert to anyone who is considering purchasing a home, old or new.
- , September 2017
Highly recommended! Robert was extremely knowledgable, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process, which I especially appreciate as a first time homebuyer. The report was easy to read and informative - the color coding and accompanying videos were great. Thank you, Robert!
- E.T., July 2017
Robert was the most professional home inspector I have ever used. His report was very thorough and the technology used made it really easy to comprehend. We were not present at the inspection, but he gave us everything we needed to understand the issues and feel confident about buying the house. His communication was excellent and he was able to fit us in with short notice. I would definitely recommend using him.
- T.C., July 2017
This is my fifth home purchase and inspection and I would rank my experience with Robert as #1. He's very thorough and professional and easily communicates what he's looking for as well as any discrepancies he finds. His report is equally thorough and descriptive. In addition, he promptly responded to any email questions we had. I would give my Robert my strongest possible recommendation for anyone requiring a home inspection.
- C.B., June 2017
Robert is very knowledgeable and did a great job putting his findings in layman's terms for me. His report -- color-coded and detailed -- is something we'll be referring to often as we make our move. 10/10.
- J.S., June 2017
This was our 3rd experience buying a home. Robert's inspection report was by far the most thorough we have ever received. We are buying this house while stationed overseas, so have not personally ever set foot in it. Robert's report, with its extensive photos and written information, gave us confidence to go through with the deal. We were able to use the report to very clearly show to the sellers where and why we requested some small repairs. Thanks to his diligence and professionalism, we are making a fully-informed purchase, despite being thousands of miles away. Should we ever buy another house, we would turn to him again.
- M.K., June 2017
Our home inspection was the most detailed and informational report that we have ever had. The pictures that accompanied the report were most helpful. We have purchased several homes, and I wish we had a similar inspection then.
- R.W., June 2017
Thanks for another great inspection!
- K.T., May 2017
Robert was incredibly informative during this inspection, and we have full confidence in our home purchase as a result of his very thorough assessment. He lists his reports with super helpful categories beyond the typical green, yellow or red issues that come up upon a new purchase - as Robert is intent on preparing his clients for *owning* and living in the home rather than just buying it. He is patient with both novice and experts, and takes the time to explain anything he observes. If I could advise a new homebuyer on anything, it would be to stay close to Robert while you all walk through your new home - yes, the whole time - as you will undoubtedly learn much about how your home is built and how to take care of it most optimally.
- C.E., May 2017
Robert is extraordinarily thorough and knowledgeable about every issue relating to inspecting a home. He walked us through every item he found and answered our questions thoughtfully. The report is well arranged and really useful both during the purchase process and will serve as a start to an "owner's manual" in our new home. He is also very professional and helpful. We definitely recommend Robert to inspect your purchased home!
- C.N., May 2017
We benefitted from Robert's deep knowledge of building science, thorough and organized inspection, and capacity to translate his findings into a clear, actionable report that we'll be able to use as a reference tool during ownership. He was personable, happy to explain his findings, and open to follow-up questions. We consider this one of the best investments we've made in our new home. Recommended without reservation.
- B.Z., May 2017
Robert not only squeezed in a last-minute home inspection for us, but he conducted it with the utmost kindness, honesty and thoroughness. He talked us through all of the potential issues while we went, so that some of what could have seemed scary became more innocuous, and he answered all of our questions with great patience. His report was promptly sent and easy to read, and we just can't recommend Trebor Home Inspections enough!
- J.M., May 2017
Thank you for being so friendly and professional! We were lucky to have such a knowledgable and careful inspector.
- S.T., April 2017
Robert did an incredible job; he was very thorough and knowledgeable! I'd highly recommend him to anyone!
- A.W., April 2017
We are new to the Charlottesville, VA, area and had no clue which home inspector to go with. Robert was referred to us by our Realtor and we are grateful for the recommendation. Robert was a great communicator before the inspection via email suggesting we visit his website to take a look at a sample of an inspection report to see what he does for an inspection. He also informed us of the cost of the inspection and other services we requested, how soon the inspection report would be available, and confirmed the time and date of the inspection. I was able to be present for the inspection of the property we were under contract to purchase. Being an objective, third party, Robert provided a wonderfully sincere, forthright, and honest approach to the inspection explaining in detail what he was seeing. The inspection report itself was a very straightforward document. Robert doesn't sugarcoat things. He reports what he saw and presents his reasoning for his evaluation. I highly encourage anyone to be on hand for the inspection. Being able to talk to and question Robert during his inspection was a great benefit. We highly recommend Robert for a home inspection.
- J.K., April 2017
Robert was very thorough in his inspection, and that gave us peace of mind as we navigated our home purchase. At the inspection, he explained and showed things to us, and was very helpful with any questions we had. We had a detailed report, with pictures, in hand later the day of the inspection. Since the inspection, he has been very helpful with follow up questions we had about some of the things he found in the inspection. Overall it was a good experience.
- L.W., March 2017
Robert was both professional and thorough. His detailed report was very easy to read and clearly marked for deficiencies that needed attention. I appreciated his honest appraisal of the issues and his positive attitude.
- J.N., March 2017
We were extremely happy with the service Robert provided! During the inspection, he gave clear information as he moved through the house, answered all questions thoroughly, and checked in as he moved along to make sure we were all on the same page. He also very patiently answered questions about possible renovations and told us that he would be happy to continue to answer similar questions in the future. The report he sent us that same night was very easy to understand; it was very well organized, with photographs and videos when warranted and color coding of information. We highly recommend Robert to anyone in need of a home inspection!
- H.J., March 2017
Thank you very much for your thorough home inspection! We could not be any happier with the service we received. We very much appreciated how you explained everything as you went and we feel much more confident purchasing this house.
- R.P., March 2017
We hired Robert to inspect the home we purchased in October 2016. Robert provided us with an incredibly thorough inspection. He truly cared about our experience and noticed things we would not have noticed. His communication was excellent throughout the process. He was very accommodating in doing the inspection without much notice in order to work around my husband's work schedule. We had a wonderful experience and give the highest recommendation for Robert's services.
- S.S., March 2017
Robert was great. He was thorough, produced a 70 page inspection, and gave us a guide for our house. We felt more knowledgeable about our home and how to properly maintain it after a few hours of discussion with him.
- M.S., March 2017
We have had a few "home inspectors" over the years, and Robert, by far, is the most knowledgeable, professional, personal and thorough, truly qualified, inspector we have found. He answered all our questions and provided a detailed written report to back up and include the items we discussed in person at the inspection. He spent several hours with us and our realtor pointing out areas we may be concerned about in a respectful (for both the home owner and buyer) manner. He also will answer any questions about the property we may have in the future. (No one has even suggested or offered that (included) service before. Yes, we would certainly recommend Robert for a competent home inspection. Sincerely, Carol & Ken
- K.R., February 2017
Robert did a great inspection and I appreciated that he responded quickly and thoroughly to all our questions throughout the process.
- T.H., February 2017
We highly recommend Trebor Home Inspections. Robert performed an extremely thorough home inspection and provided us with a very detailed report. His report listed every concerning finding and categorized each according to corresponding house system (electric, plumbing, kitchen, etc.). His color-coded legend at the top of the report helped us prioritize actual deficiencies requiring immediate action versus potential future safety concerns. As first time home buyers, this process was very foreign to us. Robert is very friendly and made us feel comfortable. We attended the inspection with Robert and he patiently answered all of our questions. He explained his findings as we went along and even pointed out general knowledge about our home that will be beneficial to know if we make renovations in the future. Robert was also timely and sent us our final inspection report on the same day as our inspection. We are thankful that we chose Trebor Home Inspections and find peace knowing that we can always reach out to Robert if any questions pertaining to our home arise in the future.
- K.A., February 2017

- H.P., February 2017
Robert was fantastic! He is very detailed and goes above and beyond to make sure you understand your new home. We would recommend him to anyone.
- K.K., February 2017
Thank you for your professionalism and thoroughness!
- E.W., January 2017
Trebor Home Inspections is exactly who I needed as I contemplated buying an older home. Robert Foster was very thorough, professional, friendly and clearly knowledgeable about homes. The report was clear and included both photos and videos. When you buy a home, you want to know what you are getting into. After receiving the report, I felt confident that I had the information I needed for a successful real estate purchase.
- M.A., January 2017
Robert was extremely thorough and knowledgable. He made us feel as confident as possible with the decisions we had to make about the house by pointing out the extent of the issues and the possible ramifications. I'd highly recommend Robert to anyone.
- S.O., January 2017
We've engaged Robert's services multiple times in the last few years and have always been impressed by his knowledge, thoroughness, and professionalism. As long as Robert is inspecting homes, we'll be his clients!
- B.H., December 2016
The best experience we have with an inspection. Robert was communicative, prompt, efficient, and thorough. We could not ask for a better inspection. We ultimately are not buying the home he inspected, and that is in part due to his thoroughness and findings. It was money very well spent. I absolutely would recommend Robert!
- J.E., December 2016
Robert provided an incredibly detailed, thorough, and thoughtful inspection of our home. As first-time home buyers, he took extra time to point out items that we might not have noticed otherwise and gave us helpful advice for upkeep of the home. His report was extremely detailed and easy to read. It will be a resource that we will refer to many times in the coming years. Robert was approachable, easy to work with, and made us feel confident that he was committed to providing us with a high-quality product. Highly recommend working with him!
- K.H., November 2016
Robert was a great inspector and made the process very clear and understandable. The report was clear and the color coding was amazing. My husband and I are first time home-buyers and Robert certainly made the process clear and understandable for us first timers! An added bonus was that he was quick to respond to email and always answered questions with clarity as well as regularly offered his assistance if we had questions. We will definitely use him in the future - I highly recommend him!
- S.H., November 2016
Great work. Thanks again!
- D.C., November 2016
Great value and service. Thank you!
- J.C., October 2016
My home inspection was a terrific experience. Robert allowed me to follow him for most of the inspection and readily explained to this first-time detached home buyer the deficiencies he noted and how they should be fixed. He pointed out small problems that might become large problems in the future. His written report went into even more depth but was written clearly and included illustrations and photos. Whether you are a prospective buyer or an owner looking to sell or concerned about the status of your home, Robert Foster is most definitely the home inspector to call upon.
- R.I., October 2016
I'm so glad Donna recommended you! I felt well-advised throughout the process. Thank you for a great job!
- M.L., October 2016
Robert was friendly, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. He answered all of your questions no matter how big or how small. This is our first time attempting to purchase a home and we now have very high standards if Robert is not available in the future. He was also extremely thorough. No piece of the house was left unturned. I feel that he was fair in the issues that needed attention and will help us immensely in gaining concessions. He also offered us useful advice as future owners of the home and how to fix simple things that would help us in the long run. The detail of his report was also easy to read for those of us who have no contracting or building experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get the most out of a home inspection.
- C.M., August 2016
Robert did a fantastic job with our home inspection. He is extremely knowledgable, friendly, thorough and professional. His report was delivered on the same day and was easy to read, very detailed, included pictures with arrows and diagrams and even is color-coded so you know where the big problems are! He has tons of special equipment and literally checks every square inch of the house. For us, he even had to crawl through the entire crawl space in the rain and still came out smiling! He is the best and great with communication during the inspection. if you need a home inspected and you want to know every potential issue, call him. You won't be disappointed.
- R.M., July 2016
Robert was extremely professional and moved through the house in a very deliberate and thorough way. He shared with us his plan of examination, and let us ask as many questions as we'd like, while still conducting the inspection. I know it is impossible to find all issues with a home, but, I'd be surprised if he didn't. The home inspection can be overwhelming and an emotional low point in the purchasing process. Robert was very informative about the issues he was finding. He talked to us about why it was an issue, how it could be repaired, and any other inquiries we had. His straightforward and informative manner was comforting and helpful during and after the inspection as we negotiated with the sellers. His report went even further beyond what we saw that day, and will be a valuable resource as we get settled into, and live in our new home for probably a few years to come. Robert has the utmost integrity and ethical behavior around the inspection process and we are very glad that we chose him. Thank you, Craig and Abby
- A.D., July 2016
We were incredibly appreciative of Robert's expertise and thoughtfulness during our home inspection. We bought an older home, and having never bought a home more than 5 years old, we needed a lot of guidance. Robert was extremely thorough and thoughtful in all of his assessments and we were beyond impressed with his report. We are still using it to guide us through all of our home improvement projects and know that we can call on him in the future if we have any questions. We hope to not be buying another home any time in the near future, but if we did, we would hire Robert again without hesitation, and will certainly be recommending him to friends and family!
- M.A., July 2016
Robert did an excellent job with my home inspection. He was extremely thorough and the report he provides is outstanding - complete with pictures and color coded so you can easily prioritize repairs. I would recommend Robert without hesitation! He truly takes pride in his work and clearly enjoys educating home buyers.
- V.L., July 2016
Robert is extremely knowlegeable and thorough when he performed his inspection of the home my wife and I are purchasing. His inspection was a "top to bottom" review of all the systems and building structure (from the crawl space up to the roof) and I found his inspection process very detailed oriented and well worth the price. I would highly recommend Robert to any of my family and friends when it comes time for their home inspection!
- M.F., July 2016
Thanks for arriving in a timely manner and doing such a thorough inspection! We appreciated all of the advice.
- C.Y., June 2016
I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into (buying an older house) and your report gave me so much information and a lot of direction--It was very helpful in allowing me to make better decisions about how to move forward with the purchase. Many thanks, Robert!
- J.S., June 2016
Robert, your report is very thorough and the photos included in the report are very helpful. I really appreciated your insights in pointing concerns and positive things that you noted in the house. Thanks Dwayne
- D.P., May 2016
I can't really add to the remarks found on Robert's website. After participating in at least a half dozen pre-purchase inspections over the years, I can say this was the most interactive and complete inspection, followed by the best report, that we'd ever seen. My only hesitation in recommending Robert is that his schedule is bound to continue to put him out of reach of those folks on a short deadline. He is absolutely worth the wait!
- J.W., May 2016
Robert is incredibly thorough and detailed with his inspections. We appreciated how much education he provided us with on the current status of our home and the inefficiencies that were present. We would highly recommend Robert!
- C.L., May 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Robert on my home inspection. His inspection of the house I was buying was extremely thorough and he took the time to explain to me what he was doing and looking for in each part of the house. His report was very comprehensive and easy to read. His use of pictures and color coding made it very easy to follow and I was shocked at how quickly he sent me the finished report given how much information was included in it! I'd highly recommend hiring Robert.
- C.F., May 2016
Robert inspected the older home we wanted to buy In a meticulous manner. He arrived early for the appointment, had everything he needed for a thorough inspection, and explained everything he was going to do before he started. He had the list of items we wanted him to pay special attention to, and he provided superb feedback on those items and all of the standard items on his checklist. We received the report in its entirety the next morning, as promised. Robert did one additional thing that I have not had happen in several prior home inspections. He offered to answer any questions that came up later in regard to the house. Several days later, we contacted him with a question about gutters in general, and he provided an expert answer to our inquiry. We were extremely pleased with his services and highly recommend him.
- B.K., May 2016
Robert came highly recommended to my wife and I. He is extremely thorough in his inspection and reports, and explains his findings in a way his clients understand. He was more than willing to work with us and our realtor from afar via videos, and we felt perfectly comfortable entrusting him to tell us if we were buying a good quality home when we could not be there in person. He will gladly answer questions about your home well beyond the time of the home inspection. We would certainly recommend Robert and request his services again in the future.
- J.C., May 2016
Robert came highly recommended to us and we can see why! We're are first time home buyers and Robert was very patient as well as keeping us informed all along the way. He left no stone unturned, and explained everything he was finding as he went. Not only was the home inspection thorough but his reports are detailed and are a great resource when it come time to negotiate. The reports not only include problems with the house but just general information that is good to have as a home buyer. We could not recommend Robert more and we are very glad and honestly lucky we worked with him in our home buying process! -Matt and Robin Jackson
- M.J., April 2016
Trebor home inspections have never let me down. Robert is top notch with professional reports citing extremely thorough details. Highly recommend.
- A.H., April 2016
Robert was:- 1. punctual and provided a thorough inspection of the outside, including windows, siding, roof, mechanical as well as evaluations of the driveway and landscaping contour 2. provided clear explanation of all his findings - particularly the mechanical issues 3. was pleasant in his manner and did not fill his time on the clock with idle chatter 4. explained along with the realtor what were reasonable requests to be made to the home-holder to be repaired. 5. good value for the amount of time he spent and the quality of his reporting.
- J.R., April 2016
Robert was incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, and patient with his explanations to a first time home buyer! I appreciated his professional operation from initial contact, agreement, report, etc. This made me feel very comfortable with this part of the home buying process, considering all of the moving parts to a home purchase, and getting things done in a timely fashion.
- P.K., March 2016
Robert was incredible to work with! I really appreciate his attention to detail, his prompt and detailed report. I really appreciate that he allowed Jim to film him to give us an idea and updates of how things were going. It make the experience much more personal. Thanks again!
- L.S., March 2016
We have had a number of inspections over the years due to a few moves and will say hands down that Robert Foster provided the most thorough inspection and report. We cannot thank him enough for his time and efforts and feel confident with our home selection following his thorough inspection.
- D.R., March 2016
Robert conducted a very thorough inspection of all facets of the home. He pointed out each item he saw that needed some attention whether it was a safety, maintenance or deficient condition and explained what would have to be done to correct or maintain it. His written report was provided later the evening of the inspection. Don't know how he does it. The report had his observations clearly categorized with major and general deficiencies clearly identified and explained with relevant references. He points out the good things about the home in addition to any issues he finds. His pictures clearly identify the observation and will be helpful in attending to them by either the seller or buyer. My wife and I can rest assured that we know the good and the not so good about our new home

Robert has inspected two of our homes and I wouldn't dream of using anyone else. Robert's integrity, deep knowledge of all things construction (both new and old), and passion for what he does leave us feeling confident in our purchases. Robert is always willing to let us tag along during his inspections and ask probing questions regarding his observations and insights, always providing an honest and considered response. Robert is thorough, committed, passionate about his work, incredibly trustworthy, and highly recommended.

When I was asked to rate Trebor Home Inspections, thorough, professional, and helpful came to mind immediately! Robert explained the process clearly before we even got started and followed through with everything quickly and completely. And he didn't mind my following him around and asking questions as he worked! The final report was full of information and easy to understand. He not only included immediate concerns, but offered safety and maintenance issues I should watch for in the future. An excellent experience all around, I would highly recommend him.

We had the pleasure of having our housing inspection completed by Robert Foster of Trebor Home Inspections. The level of professionalism exhibited was exemplary and far surpassed our initial expectations. The preparation, quality, pride and integrity were obvious throughout the process and has set the bar for future interactions with the home buying process. Robert is a consummate proprietor and left us with the knowledge and belief that his desire and promise to provide the best customer service would be achieved. His proficiency was quickly established and maintained throughout the inspection and follow  up process. His ability to communicate and explain his findings both verbally and in writing in an understandable manner were very helpful and appreciated. He is a true pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others or work with him in the future.

The inspection process was very clear, and very welcoming for us to ask questions at any time. The inspection report was incredibly detailed and thorough - the level of detail and aspects like the color coding helped us immensely in terms of prioritizing our negotiation requests for the Sellers. The inclusion of photographs throughout was also incredible helpful. The report provides us with a fantastic baseline "manual" for short and longterm improvements to the house. Thank you again - we really felt like we got top-notch expertise and service.

Robert was extremely thorough and professional during our home inspection. He included not only information about what inspection items were critical, but also information that is helpful for general home ownership, including areas where energy efficiency could be improved. His report was easy to read and understand. We would absolutely recommend him to potential home buyers!

Mr. Foster combines professionalism and accessibility to inform and educate his clients. There is no detail to small or task to simple for him to take the time to examine and explain how it works. He has inspected two houses for us and we will ask him to inspect all our future houses as well.

Robert did an excellent job and took his time giving the home we are considering buying a thorough inspection. We appreciated him taking his time to explain his findings to us in a way we could understand.

Robert not only gave us a thorough and complete professional inspection, he patiently offered a veritable tutorial on the home and its systems. He didn't mind me tagging along for the inspection, in fact he seemed to enjoy my involvement and my questions. He explained not only the potential issues but how to manage them to prevent future problems as well as how some of the systems/equipment work and suggested maintenance tips. Robert is a no-nonsense and trustworthy professional who had no bias except to give an honest report on the condition of the our future home. I am not only more confident about our purchase decision, I'm more prepared to own the home without the learning curve it might take to become acquainted with how it functions and how to properly care for it.

Robert was not only professional and extremely knowledgable, but he was a pleasure to work with! We felt very comfortable with his level of expertise and his report was so helpful as we moved forward with the home buying process. We not only felt like Robert's inspection and report was helpful for our decision as potential home buyers, but as future home owners! We are so grateful to understand our home at the level that we now do and would feel completely comfortable recommending Robert to our friends, families, and acquaintances in the future! Thank you!

As first time home buyers, Robert's thorough report is going to be a tremendous asset to us as we maintain our home over the coming years. We are beyond grateful that we had him perform our home inspection.

Enjoyable, and we felt we were in very good hands!

Robert, My apology for not sending a message sooner but I was hopeful that we might see you again this summer for another inspection. We did not purchase the house on Rutledge Avenue for various reasons. Your thorough and informative inspection of the property helped us very much as we considered this property. However, we ultimately decided that we needed more space and did not want to invest the funds necessary to do so at this house. We continue to look for a suitable home and will again call on you for the inspection. It was a pleasure to see you at work and your written report was excellent! Thank you very much.

Couldn't have asked for a more thorough, thoughtful, and knowledgable inspector. I learned so much about the property, construction, and home maintenance that will last a lifetime. I felt comfortable asking lots of questions and he took the time to explain many concepts to a new homeowner. I felt like he was extremely detail oriented and brought to light many issues that could easily been overlooked. I felt like he gave me the full picture so I could go into the buying process with my eyes wide open. Overall a great experience and a great guy.
