Tom was incredible. Very knowledgable, thorough, friendly, everything we needed as clueless first-time homebuyers. He walked us through the entire process and was kind enough to offer additional advice that he thought might help us. He is skilled at septic and home inspections where most do not do both. In all my research I found only a few who could do both.

- T.A., Virginia Beach VA, April 2018
Tom does an excellent job inspecting homes and is a pleasure to work with. He's done two inspections for me. He uncovered issues in the first house that I was uncomfortable dealing with, and the thoroughness with which he conducted that inspection is what lead me to hire him again. If for whatever reason you are unable to attend the inspection he also writes detailed, photograph filled reports and will walk you through said report over the phone to make sure you have a good understanding of the findings. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
- M.B., Madison CT, March 2018

Very informative and welcoming. Thank you for explaining things to us and taking your time to make sure things were in order for our new home purchase. Highly recommend Soundhome.

Tom was more than helpful with our home inspection.

Worth every penny! We will be sure to use him on our next inspection.
- A.J., Stonington CT, February 2018
Tom is thorough, precise, knowledgeable and friendly. He found things during my inspection that I had no idea even existed. He took the time to explain various aspects of my new "old" home that were relevant and needed attention, and offered advice as to the best course of action I would need to take to remediate. This is my second time working with Tom, first as a seller and now as a buyer, and I heartily recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspection. He even offered to help with some of my repairs if needed and suggested folks he knew would give me a "good bang for the buck." In fact, that perfectly describes Tom Morgan.

Wonderful inspector! Pays attention to every detail throughout the home he is inspecting. Tom also takes the time out to explain in detail what he found, as well as shows you the problem's location, and gives his recommended solution to correct the problem. His reports are detailed and very easy to follow, plus he gives you pamphlets'/books with great general home care information. The business is family ran, with his wife as his assistant.

- J.M., August 2017
As a realtor, I chose Tom for the inspection of a home that I am buying. I knew that he was professional, and responsive due to my interactions with him on previous sales. What I didn't know was that his system of delivering the reports was so seamless. Not only did I feel he did a thorough job of inspection my future home, the tools provided by him in order to quickly and easily organize requests for repairs, and credits were amazing. It took me 5 minutes to go through the report, select key items, assign a dollar value, and submit all in a pdf! I highly recommend SoundHome. (And Tom and April!)
- S.M., August 2017
Tom and April were punctual, very thorough and they were friendly to all involved: seller, buyer and building manager. No stone was left unturned but ever so pleasantly. The report was available in less than 48 hours as promised.

- D.S., Guilford CT, June 2017
Tom is quite knowledgeable in so many aspects of building and home operating systems. I was told I'd need separate inspections for my home, septic and well. Tom did all of them, as well as termite inspection and Radon gas inspection. Most importantly, Tom worked for me and had my best interest in mind. He was thorough enough to find even the smallest flaws, which enabled me to decide what was and was not important. He also knew that I wanted to learn as much as possible about all of the systems and he took the time to explain each one to me. I don't generally make recommendations as a rule, but I would recommend Tom to anyone needing a home inspection.
- J.P., May 2017
Tom is very thorough in his inspection and he makes it a point to ensure you know everything about your house. He doesn't pull any punches when he speaks. I appreciate that.

To the point - We hired Tom to inspect a 240+ year old home prior to purchase. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable about antique homes. He explained each of the problem areas. He helped us learn as much as we could. He produced a very detailed report. My agent, who was at the inspection, was clear that Tom was by far the most thorough inspector she had seen. I will also add that he was easy to deal with, and his fee was similar to what others had quoted. Very thankful that we hired Tom!
- M.W., Rocky Hill CT, December 2016
We are purchasing an 1800's home in Rhode Island and recently used Mr. Morgan as our home inspector. What an incredible experience. He involved us in every step of the inspection and spent valuable time and effort pointing out each area of concern. He gave us the confidence we needed to proceed with necessary caution with the re-negotiation and helped us to brush off the emotional response we initially had to the home, enabling us to look at it through realistic eyes. He promptly returned our calls and no question was too small. Mr. Morgan comes with an amazing resume, so when he makes a recommendation, you instinctively feel his experience through his confident yet professional manner. We are so grateful for his guidance and highly recommend him to you.
- D.A., Grafton MA, November 2016
