Sheldon and Sheldon Jr. were thorough, professional, and personable. I thought the inspection would be a tedious process, but they turned it into a valuable learning experience and a fun time. They were recommended to me, and I will definitely recommend them to others. I'll call Sheldon for future projects of my own. I'm also considering using their new pest control service. I trust them and feel secure moving into my home after Sheldon and Sheldon's inspection!

Sheldon and Sheldon Jr. not only were extremely professional and time efficient, they were very thorough in their inspection and made sure to communicate all of their findings with me, my relator and my wife.

Sheldon was amazing! He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Knowing I had two young children he also addressed things that could help me keep my kids safe (i.e. windows, railings, additional countertop support, etc.) He explained everything in simple terms and used examples to help me understand. As a first time home buyer that was very helpful and important to me.

As a first time homeowner who has only lived in Apartments, I know basically NOTHING about houses. Sheldon and his team (Sheldon JR) made me i feel confident and knowledgeable about all the components of the house. The collective knowledge they both had about everything from plumbing, roofing, HVAC systems to masonry and more was wonderful. They explained things in the simplest terms, used great examples and didn't make me feel unintelligent for not knowing or understanding something. We did 1 full home inspections (basement to attic) with them and they were extremely thorough, provided excellent documentation, pictures and reports and very were also straightforward about the houses. They were all very personable and hilarious, turning something I had been dreading for weeks, into a great learning experience and an entertaining night out.

- W.C., June 2017
I think Sheldon did an absolutely superb job of inspecting my potential new home. Sheldon took his time to explain in great detail what he was going to inspect and why. All doing the inspection Sheldon asked me if I had any questions. When I asked any questions, he explained it to me where I could understand. He gave me great safety suggestions as we circumvented the house from the outside as well as inside the home. One suggestion, due to the incline of the hill in my driveway, I should always place a choke behind the wheel of my car to prevent damage to the transmission over time. Happy customer!?
- B.S., June 2017
Sheldon shows up ahead of schedule and initiates the inspection on the outside of the home. This saves my client and I time at the property. He is very thorough and knowledgeable in his evaluation and guides my client through first steps as a future owner.

Sheldon went far above and beyond what is required of a home inspector. He carefully went through everything he found with me, not just saying that it needed to be fixed, but explaining why and how it should be repaired. He went into detail with everything, even explaining what type of spackle should be used for cosmetic ceiling cracks and wall cracks. He also made numerous very helpful recommendations beyond what was required of the inspection - for example, recommending I use double hung windows when replacing the current windows so that I would be able clean the outside easily (the unit was on the 6th floor). I would recommend Sheldon to anyone without hesitation.
