Sheldon made the process of the inspection super easy, and he took time to explain to me what each issue was and how it could impact my future home.

Sheldon was very knowledgeable and really helped me to understand exactly what I am getting myself into. Buying your first home is stressful enough, but I really felt comfortable with his assessment of the property. When I had any questions, he answered them in a way that makes it easy for the everyday person to understand. I felt I had a much better understanding of what it takes to get a house in good working order and how to keep a home in good running order. He brought my attention to things I had no idea to look for, so his attention to detail is impeccable! I would definitely recommend Sheldon to anyone looking to purchase a house, first-time buyer or not!

I have been very blessed with my team during this renovation project, and meeting Mr. Faison is another person I can add to my team of professional people. Mr. Faison is a professional that explains things to you to help you understand where he is coming from, or what he needs to point out you concerning the property. He CLEARLY knows what he is doing and I am so glad my Realtor suggested him. If I ever need another home inspection or know someone who needs one Mr.Faison is the person I am reaching out to first.

Mr. Sheldon is not only professional, he is extremely knowledgeable in his field! When I initially made contact with him I explained that I didn't know too much about home inspections, his response was perfect, "you will learn a lot today." Not only did he meet me at my level of knowledge, he patiently walked me through everything answering all my questions (which I must note my questions were minimal due to his thoroughness). I learned a lot about the home I'm preparing to buy all thanks to Sheldon. He has a client for life. This is the second time my family comes in contact with Sheldon. My brother being the first when he was purchasing his first home. Needless to say my brother had amazing things to say about Sheldon as well! I hope this post can help someone looking to identify a knowledgeable, thorough, patient and personable inspector. His name is Sheldon Faison.

I was referred to Mr. Faison by a coworker who used his service before.  I looked up F.A.C.E.S online checked for reviews and then emailed them.  They're very responsive I received a response within hours.  I spoke with Mr. Faison via he asked questions regarding property and I was able to make an appointment that fit my schedule.  At the property he introduce himself and informed me what he'd be doing.  He was very thorough and informative throughout my inspection.  He took time explaining the different parts of the home and their purpose.  He asked if I understood and had questions often which I appreciate.  I'm a first time homeowner who didn't grow up in a house.  I didn't have a clue of what ownership consist besides what I've heard, but  after my inspection with F.A.C.E.S  I know more and I'm better prepared.  I'd definitely recommend F.A.C.E.S and I will be utilizing their services again

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.
