Mr. Morgan inspected two properties for me and his professionalism, knowledge and expertise of numerous details pertaining to home construction and maintenance was outstanding. He provided thorough detailed information on all aspects of home issues, potential problems, and ways to correct issues and, provided excellent feedback to me during both inspections.

- 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.
- K.L., Stonington CT, August 2017
I am not crazy about writing review...maybe because of my English. I would normally give a star rating without explanation. I am writing this review because some people have done their job above and beyond. Tom and April are very friendly, helpful, honesty and knowledgeable of their career. I will absolutely recommend them for your inspection. They had answer all my questions about my purchase. Thank you again for helping with my purchase and work with me in short notice. p.s. Should have you look at the building before the appraiser!
- J.S., August 2017
I am not crazy about writing any review...maybe because of my English. Normally, I give it rating ( like how many stars without explanation. ) .

They are very helpful, friendly, honesty and knowledgeable. They will tell you everything that you need to know before you make a purchase of your home or commercial property.

Tom did a great job inspecting the condo we are planning to buy. He was thorough and explained everything in simple terms so it was easy to understand his findings. His report was comprehensive and really well done. We felt confident with our decision once we read his detailed observations. We haven't bought a house in awhile, so we might be a bit behind the times, but the software program and technology used by Tom for the inspection report was excellent! Preparing the list of concerns for the seller, complete with photos, was so easy! Thanks Tom!

- 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. I would highly recommend him for your inspection needs. Plus he is one of the few inspectors who is qualified to do multiple inspections (roof, structural, well) so he is a one stop shop.
- R.B., Groton CT, May 2017

- G.K., South Kingstown RI, December 2016
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

Tom is a real pro. I called the right guy to do my inspection. I will use him again for sure.
- A.C., East Providence RI, May 2016
Hi Tom, sorry for the delay in providing this feedback, but just wanted to wait for the VA Appraiser to finish her report. Thank you again for the great and detailed report you provided!!! The format of your report, along with the detailed description of the findings, have been extremely valuable to us, not only for what we need to be considering going forward, but also in negotiating terms of the purchase for this house. In short, your report has been a great source of "info" and an easy and well-organized reference. After your inspection, I just wanted to note that Griggs & Brown Pest Control found "dry rotting wood" in the wooden outdoor shed ("outbuilding"), along with some termite traps missing, as well as being of old "technology" of around the mid-1990's. Also, the VA Appraiser just reported the other day that there is missing "vinyl" on certain parts of the roof eaves, mostly on the west side of the property. Thanks again for such a great "write-up" and thorough inspection. Sincerely, Dave
- D.E., Newport RI, May 2016

Tom did an exceptionally thorough inspection. His knowledge of home construction allowed him to go much more in depth than your average inspector.

Most importantly Tom's inspection gave me confidence in the integrity of the property I am buying. I would highly recommend Tom's services to other prospective home buyers.
- D.L., North Branford CT, April 2016

Tom did a through job, inside and out, up and down, in the dirt and spiderwebs, he did not miss a thing. It was interesting and enlightening to follow and learn what makes the house tick.

We'd like to have him back for coffee and a chat, if he has spare time in his busy schedule!
