Jay was very personable and professional. Our report was well done and came to us very quickly. The link to send it to our agent and finance officer once completed made transferring the report data very easy.

Jay was very thorough through out the inspection. Jay had lots of good tips for the new home buyers and even had tips for a realtor like myself. I appreciate the dedication Jay put into time frame and how quickly he responded for setting the inspection up. Would highly use again!
- R.F., September 2023
This is our first experience with a private well. Jay offered clear explanations with regard to the testing process; from prep time, the various elements that would be tested for, and great tips and local resources we could employ, if necessary. He forwarded the results, along with clear explanations, as soon as they were available. And again, he included great information on other testing and prevention measures that we can pursue. We are very grateful that Jay is part of our new community, and will continue to rely on his services in the future!

Words can't even describe how happy my husband and I are with Jay's work! He goes above and beyond with his thorough inspections. With how detailed he is, we have the ability to feel confident moving into our first home. Thank you, Jay! We appreciate you and all the hard work you do!

We bought a home in Roque Bluffs and have been so appreciative and impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that Jay gave to our home. This will be our retirement home and having over a half million price tag, it is a requirement that the skill level of our home inspector be top of the line. Jay did not disappoint and is always quick to respond (still after having bought our home) with our multitude of questions and much needed qualified and licensed trade referrals. His fee is well worth the price. You will not be disappointed and in fact, Jay will exceed your expectations. Chris & April Daly Roque Bluffs, Maine

Thank you Jay for the thorough inspection and report. The knowledge that you demonstrated and shared with us about the effects that indoor air quality can have on our health was eye opening.

Overall, he did an excellent job and I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks Jay!

We were very impressed with Jay and the home inspection he did for us this summer. This was out first time buying a house, and Jay was very patient, thorough, and available through this stressful process. The report itself was a great resource as we went forward and eventually closed on the house. I would recommend you give Jay a call if you looking for a quality and professional home inspection.

great survey, I am enjoy follow up with existing customer very much
- P.T., December 2015
Jay, I have been through several home inspections, most of them pedestrian and only one before yours that I would call outstanding. I am pleased to say that you more than met my expectations with your persistence, professionalism, and eagerness to literally go the extra mile to make sure that I got exactly what I needed in a short time frame. I was unable to be on site for the inspection but it was clear from your written and verbal reports that you have a passion for your job and for giving your customers only the best service. You do exactly what a good home inspector should do: you not only note real and potential problems, but you provide valuable education in how a particular home's systems work.
- T.E., Rockville MD, December 2015
Jay was extremely thorough. He pointed out all issues along with the good of the property. Time was never an issue and no question of mine went unanswered.
