I initially thought the home inspection process would be quite daunting, but Sheldon was informed, patient and very personable. We actually had a great time learning and laughing. He made sure I understood every surface of the house and I greatly appreciate it. I will definitely be recommending him to everyone I know.

- A.D., February 2017
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.
- M.J., February 2017
Sheldon came highly recommended, and I now see why. He is extremely thorough, meticulous, and patient!

The service was incredible. Sheldon was professional, through and knowledgeable. He took his time and ensure that I understood everything, he managed my expectations on what my home should feel, operate and look like. This was my first time building a home and I was not happy with the process and unsure of the quality of craftsmanship use by the builder. However the inspection that I received for Mr. Faison made me rest my mind knowing that the builders are fixing the issues that were found and that I am aware of how my house operates.

- M.M., Washington DC, April 2016
Very thorough inspection conducted on the home on 41st Street in DC. We were leery about purchasing a renovated property due to the horror stories we've heard about unscrupulous builders. Mr. Faison took us through the entire house and explained all nuances of what we should and should not see to our satisfaction. I've been through this home buying process three times and this by far was the best home inspection we've had performed thus far. Alton C

Great person to have as an inspector. Explains everything he sees with insight on best possible way to handle them.
- T.H., December 2015
Sheldon was great. As first time home buyers there is no way we would have known what we needed to know about home maintenance without Sheldon. We feel much more comfortable taking on a mortgage because we know exactly what we're buying. Sheldon and Sheldon are a great team and are extremely knowledgeable, punctual, and courteous. I would gladly work with him again. Do yourself a favor and take a bit of stress out of the home-buying process with an inspector who is going to do a thorough job and give you an education at the same time.
