Tom was straight and to the point on everything, as well as a very good teacher. This was very helpful as he was patient and thorough in helping me understand various parts/systems of the house, how they work, what to look for, etc. I appreciated his honesty, thoroughness, and of course his experience. I'd recommend Tom to everyone that wants a straight shooter with decades of experience.

Tom is a total pro. He's an incredibly thorough and skilled inspector and his report goes WAY beyond what you'll get elsewhere. And as a skilled contractor, he catches details and has insight that a typical inspector will not. I really can't recommend Tom highly enough.

Tom Morgan did an excellent job both in inspecting the property and in clearly detailing the results of the inspection. His thorough, direct approach was much appreciated, and his concise summary of the positives and negatives of the inspected home was excellent. Immediately following the inspection he also recommended follow-up actions and provided contacts for next steps. I absolutely recommend Tom for home inspections.
- J.C., Ledyard CT, May 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
Excellent job....very knowledgeable and thorough
- P.C., Southborough MA, May 2016
Tom did an extremely thorough inspection and was very helpful in explaining each of his comments and showing us his findings. He was very timely in scheduling the inspection and completing the report. I would definitely use him again.
- , May 2016
As first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect at the home inspection. Thank you for being thorough, answering all of our questions and overall making this experience a positive one. We appreciate it!
- M.K., Charlestown RI, April 2016
Tom did an exceptionally thorough inspection. His knowledge of home construction allowed him to go much more in depth than your average inspector. Tom also made a point to show me the issues that he subsequently documented in the inspection report. Tom was friendly and easy to talk to. 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
We have used Tom for pre-sale inspection on our home and our first investment property. He is very thorough and his years of experience and knowledge help to make inspection process less daunting. We will use Tom again in the future and recommend Sound Home Inspection to anyone looking for a home inspector.
- S.T., Westerly RI, April 2016

- S.H., 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. Photos of trouble spots enhance the areas that need repair or replacement. The report is very detailed. Tom is a true professional in every sense of the word. We'd like to have him back for coffee and a chat, if he has spare time in his busy schedule!
- C.C., March 2016
You do a great job with every one of your inspections, Tom. I appreciate that and will continue to recommend with confidenceconfidence to my clients. Thanks.
- A.M., Kensington CT, March 2016
Tom took all the time necessary to inform us of all the potential problems in the house. He made every effort to educate us. When work was done well or he was particularly impressed by something he noted that as well. I would absolutely choose Tom again and recommend him to other home buyers.
- J.P., March 2016
Tom was excellent, very knowledgeable and spent whatever time was necessary to not only explain the items he found but what was good about the systems in the home and providing me answers to whatever questions I had. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is in need of a home inspector.

Thank you Tom for your knowledge, trustworthiness, and caring attitude! You saved us from making the biggest mistake of our lives and in turn we found our dream home!
- K.F., Warwick RI, January 2016
Tom Morgan delivered the most comprehensive inspection report we have ever received. It was delivered on time, he discussed the issues over the telephone with us and responded immediately to all further questions regarding the inspection report. The fact that our discussions were trans-Atlantic, where there is a five time hour time difference, underlines his professionalism and commitment to his clients. I recommend Tom without any hesitation or reservation to any potential buyer requiring a detailed home inspection.
- G.P., January 2016
Tom Morgan did a thorough and careful job with our inspection. We appreciate his attention to detail, and his informative nature. We are thankful for the extra effort Tom made to insure the safety of the home. We would definitely recommend his services.
- E.L., Whitestone NY, December 2015
Tom was professional, organized and thorough. I'd reccomend him in a NY minute!
- R.R., Westerly RI, December 2015
Tom was very professional and knowledgeable of the whole inspection. He was able to guide us through all aspects without confusing us or talking over us. He kept informing us of positives and negatives of the property. He made sure if there was a concern to address it immediately. It is hard to find someone with so much knowledge and the patients to educate his customers without offending someone. I appreciate tom making the experience a pleasant one.
- R.R., East Lyme CT, December 2015
This is our second attempt to buy our first home. We had Tom inspect the first home we intended to buy. It was very clear that he was very knowledgeable about what should and should not be found in a safe and well built home. He took his time to explain his discovers. This helped us understand to scope of the problems we'd inherit in the home. Based on his investigation we passed on the property because it was very unsafe and would required more then we could afford to fix. . When we found a second home we loved, we called Tom immediately. We'd trust no one else to help us understand what we were buying. At our second investigation, Tom was equally through and informative. When he found minimal issues and stated that the home was in a safe and sound condition needing only very minimal fixes to make it 100%, we knew we can trust that. We are so please to be buying a home that Tom has looked over. Another positive of working with Tom is he will get he reports in a timely manner and answer any follow up questions promptly. We adore Tom. I wouldn't buy a home without him.
- A.B., Groton CT, December 2015
Tom did an excellent job. He is extremely thorough and informative. He explains things well and is a great resource. Thanks!
- C.T., Hamden CT, December 2015
Thorough and very helpful. Would definitely recommend him to others.
- K.G., East Greenwich RI, December 2015
If a house could be more of a safely hazard or a money pit, we'd be surprised. We had no idea what a mistake it would have been to purchase the home until we had Tom look at it. Tom has, as written in his bio, a very deep knowledge of how a home should be built and what is problematical. We appreciated how Tom talked us though as he discovered issues. We left know exactly what was wrong, how it should have been done right and what we would have needed to do to resolve the issues. While he shared facts, he did not try to sway us one way or the other about the property. That is a tough balance when its very clear that so much is just plain wrong or dangerous. We really appropriate Tom. We have a new house we are considering and already have hired Tom to look at it. I don't think we'd buy a house without his careful review. Thanks so much Tom!! see you soon for the next inspection.
- A.B., Groton CT, December 2015
We are very pleased with your services, and you are highly recommend. Thank you, Joe & Maria DeCaro
- M.D., November 2015
Tom was recommended to me as the "guy that realtors hate, and home buyers LOVE"... I asked why would realtors hate him? "Thats because he is so good at what he does, he will find absolutely ANYTHING that there is to be found"... Well that was all I needed to hear, he was HIRED! Let me just keep it simple and say this..... He WELL Exceeded any expectations I had, and was an absolute Rockstar of a home inspector! When and if I need a home inspector, or am asked to recommend one, I would look no further than Tom Morgan... He is the Michael Jordan of home inspection..
- J.K., Westerly RI, November 2015
Tom Morgan is AWESOME!!!!!! I would HIGHLY recommend him, he is extremely thorough. This man ROCKS in my books! Thank you Tom, it was a pleasure to meet you !!!!
- L., Niantic CT, November 2015
We first used Tom as a home inspector more than 25 years ago. He was exceptionally thorough at that time and, to no one's surprise, equally thorough, professional and capable to pick up the smallest code violation now! We both greatly value his expertise in all areas of residential construction/renovation. And that hair color - finally more age appropriate. Jill and Rick M.
- R.M., New London CT, November 2015
Couldn't ask for a better home inspector. A very nice person, great at explaining what is going on and what needs to be done. Overall great job!

Tom did an excellent job of pointing out trouble areas and saved me from making a big mistake.
- S.C., East Lyme CT, August 2015
Could you notify Nick or the Owner that we would like hall thermostat to be repaired or replaced. You had noted it on your comments on page 13 that it was loose. Thank you again for a great job well done. My legal name on the report is not Linda, it is Glenda, Best regards Toni and Lowell Noyes

- C.V., Groton CT, July 2015
Thomas Morgan was personable, prompt, thorough, knowledgeable, and keen-eyed to details that were invisible to me. If ever there was a house-whisperer, he's the one.
- T.M., Charlestown RI, July 2015
Tom, Thanks again for helping us, and again I'm sorry about the time confusion. In the inspection report you mentioned that the roof flashing needed repair or replacement. If you could shed some light on that for me, I would appreciate it. Thanks Again, Charlie
- C.C., June 2015
Hi Tom, I am pleased with the job that you did. When we spoke on the phone, I did ask you if you could put some dollar value on the work that needed to be done. That would have been helpful for me in terms of negotiating . I am wondering, when you looked at the water stained ceiling tiles, did you look above them to see the condition of the primary ceiling. If so it would have been helpful to know it's present state. I understand that the toilet above is loose at its' base, but is the floor around it solid or degraded from being wet? It is important for me to know the underlying situation, not just what appears on the surface. Thank you, Ken Stenzler
- K.S., Mystic CT, June 2015
Tom was incredibly accurate and detail oriented. I am a first time home buyer and he did a great job at making sure he caught everything so that I wouldn't end up in a house falling apart. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
- M.D., Waterford CT, June 2015
Tom was very knowledgeable about the home we were inspecting. He was very thorough and took time to explain issues to me so that I understood completely.

- J.M., Fihers Island NY, April 2015
As first time home buyers we found Tom to be prompt, thorough and patient. He explained step by step the different aspects of the inspection. He also gave us tips on how much things cost to repair when they do break. Tom was straight forward and his report was easy to read.
- R.W., Stonington CT, April 2015
Tom was very thorough with the home inspection and took the time to walk me through the house and explain all his findings and their implications. His report was easy to read and very detailed, including lots of pictures that helped us in our negotiations with an out of state home owner.

Very pleased with the inspection and inspector. It certainly was thorough. Having had an inspection by ?inspectors? at my present residence in Westerly the inspection I had at Hillcrest certainly does not compare in any way. The report was very extensive and much appreciated. And, Tom's personality certainly made me feel comfortable and that I was getting what I was paying for. Thanks.... Donna Bewlay
