The inspection, by John Fordyce, was truly an eye opener. He is very thorough and educated as to his inspection and professionalism. If I needed another inspection done or if my friends needed this service I would truly recommend his services. Also, very nice personality. He did not rush the procedure. I truly appreciated his pictures he took. Bill D.

John and his partner were absolutely amazing. Great communication. Answered all texts, phone calls and responded in a timely manner. If I left a voice mail, he always called me back. There is nothing more annoying than someone who doesn't return calls! He was fantastic! Immediate call backs or texts. After the inspection, I counter-offered the house for many things he pointed out and saved $5000 on my house! Thank you to John and his partner!~

John is a honest and passionate at his job, does the best inspection possible, and he respects our military, thanks john,for being part of our home buying experience.
- B.M., Mohnton PA, April 2019
I have had previous home inspections, however, John provided the most comprehensive report I’ve seen. He meticulously scoured the home, and found items that previous inspections had missed or not reported. The details were complete, but in laymen’s terms to increase awareness. I would strongly recommend John, and I will use his services in the future.
- A.K., Latrobe PA, February 2019
I was not able to attend the inspection with my wife Tammy. However, after reading and comparing the inspection report to the repairs and issues that i had visualized/noted myself at the property. I was very impressed and appreciative to what I saw in the report. The attention to detail and formality yet easy to understand format of the report itself made me very comfortable and confident in our decision to purchase this property. Thank you for your attentive detail in the inspection and user friendly report!
- T.M., Somerset PA, February 2019
John and Doug were incredibly thorough in inspecting everything they could. Their explanations were clear along with showing us details of everything they inspected. They made sense out of any issues they came across. We'd recommend them highly. Gary & Rose Watkins
- R.W., Clearfield PA, January 2019
John was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He explained things in a way so that they were easy to understand and took time to talk through each individual element of the home inspection. I would 100% recommend him.
- J.M., Indiana PA, October 2018
Doug has once again done a thorough job and gave me great insight for the home we are looking to purchase. The report John has prepared has everything Doug and I discussed and more! Quick responses to my emails and in scheduling times. Great company to work with!
- K.S., Johnstown PA, August 2018
They were Clear and through with plenty of clear supporting pictures. Thanks!
- B.M., York PA, July 2018
Doug took the time to answer every question I had and even some I hadn't thought of! The inspection was very thorough and addressed every concern that I had from the seller's disclosure and found several items that weren't even listed. And the final report from John and Doug gave me all the answers that I needed to make the right decision for me! I will recommend them to friends and will gladly use them again in the future!
- K.S., Johnstown PA, July 2018
Very thorough inspection done by Doug. Was very informative and had a wealth of information for every question I asked. Well done!

- J.Q., Indiana PA, June 2018
We could not have picked a better home inspector to work with during our first purchase. John was extremely thorough and detailed throughout the entire process. He explained everything to us in a simple, easy to understand way. His report was issued quickly with helpful pictures and notes. His expertise made us feel very comfortable with our decision. We highly recommend John.
- D.D., Indiana PA, May 2018
John was very thorough and helpful. He made me appreciate the house that my wife and I are buying even more. He has a keen eye, very honest, will give you the brutal honest feedback you want. Thank you John!
- D.R., Indiana PA, April 2018
Mr. John Fordyce and his assistant Doug, were very professional and knowledgeable. A very thorough inspection was completed. He answered any questions that I had. A very detailed report was emailed on the same business day. I would highly recommend others to utilize his service. Best money ever spent. Great job gentlemen and thank you ever so much.
- J.F., Indiana PA, March 2018
John was very helpful, showed up right on time, was very nice and presented a thorough report. I would definately use John again for an inspection.
- R.L., New Florence PA, February 2018
Paid $70 for a pest and termite inspection on top of the normal inspection and did not receive the pest report. I emailed John about it a few times and never received a response. The normal home inspection and report were great. Just disappointed that I wasted $70 and cannot get a hold of anyone.
- J.H., Ford City PA, January 2018
Inspector was very good in answering my questions and fully explaining everything. The report and inspection is very thorough and professional. It was worth the money!
- J.H., Ford City PA, January 2018
I am very pleased with the result and attention to detail that I received from John on my home inspection.
- C.L., New Alexandria PA, January 2018
Very nice, honest, down to earth man. Made me feel comfortable. Explained everything after the inspection and answered the questions I had. He and his helper took their time and didn't seem rushed but were very thorough. This is the home I'm working on buying, and I don't want to be worried about this and that. His report not only contained the few items that needed fixing but his suggestions on what to do and who to seek for help in fixing it is really appreciated. I received my report on the house in less than 24 hours. That is great service!!! I would recommend him to anyone that ask. Thank you John.
- R.W., Seward PA, December 2017
I was very impressed with Johns ability to work with me around the Holiday's and his quick replies to my emails.
- R.W., Summerhill PA, November 2017
John is a pleasure to work with. He explained everything that was inspected, what should be changed and the priority of the problem. First time buying a home and he explained everything in layman’s terms so we could understand it and ask if we had questions several times throughout the process. We certainly couldn’t ask for a better inspector. Thanks John!
- R.W., Kittanning PA, October 2017
We really wished to be present for the home inspection, but since we are currently living out of state we were not able to be there. The confidence in John's voice assured us we need not worry about not being present during the inspection. John is very professional & accessible, and if he is not available to answer a call he will return your call in a very timely fashion. Inspections were scheduled and completed within the time frame requested. John's reports were thorough and so simple to follow and understand. For each item that may pose a problem the report listed the problem, why it is a problem, and what you can do to fix the problem. Along with the detailed information is a photograph showing exactly where to look and what to look at, and if something is small there is an arrow showing specifically where to look. Thank you John for making this step of our home buying process simple. All of your suggestions are valued and will help us to make our home safe and sound.
- W.D., Greensburg IN, October 2017
Very fast turn around! extreamly knowledgeable and took his time to explain everything to me as we walked through.
- L.L., apollo PA, June 2017
I recently had John run all of my home inspections, and was remarkably pleased. He was very observant of all the minor details as well as the major ones. Very interactive on what he was looking at or for, which allowed for an easy conversation to what he had acknowledged. Discreet to the buyer and not persuaded by outside comments deterring his findings. If given the chance I would not only use John again, but I would entice others to seek his expertise!!!
- J.H., Vandergrift PA, June 2017
Doug did a great job for my inspection. He was very thorough and informative. He explained everything he was looking for and the issues he found. He gave great recommendations and advise. The price was reasonable for the amount of time put into the inspection and report that I received. I would recommend Safe-Buy Home Inspections to others.
- A.B., Indiana PA, May 2017

- D.P., Johnstown PA, October 2016
We found John and his assistant to be very professional and personable. Following him throughout the inspection, he pointed things out to us and gave us suggestions for the minor details that we could do to the house to make it a safer home for us. During the inspection he explained the reason for the need for certain repairs that we would not have otherwise understood. We wanted and ASHI Certified inspector, and we got more than we anticipated using John. He was highly recommended by family and friends and we are certainly pleased that he did our inspection. He provided photos with our report so that there is no misunderstanding of the needed repairs. Thank You John!
- P.L., Jacksonville FL, October 2016
It can be very difficult to buy a home from long distance, one that you have never seen in person. It is great to have competent professionals who can be your eyes and help you make good decisions. Having John there to help with this process has been great and we could not have bought this house without his professional opinions. Thank's John!

He and his coworker are very thorough and full of knowledge. I would suggest them to others and use their services in the future. He is patient and will explain in detail would should and what shouldn't be with a home. Thank you again for the knowledge and great service.
- K.B., Vandergrift PA, February 2015
John was extremely professional, courteous, and made sure to explain, in detail, everything he was inspecting. I do have a moderate background in construction and could tell from my experiences, John has an outstanding and thorough knowledge base. However, don't be intimidated by John's expertise. He does very well explaining everything in a way anyone could understand (even those with no construction background). I also appreciate John providing a military discount. I truly feel that goes above and beyond in businesses today. John Fordyce comes with my highest appreciation and recommendation.
- B.B., Latrobe PA, February 2015
John showed up on time. Answered all of my questions. Instead of trying to get more money out of me he actually saved me money. When your already purchasing a home every little bit counts
