Highly recommend this company. They are the most professional and thorough company if have ever use. Steve and Maria provide a personal service beyond exceptional. Steve went through the report as if he were the one buying the home. I live in South Florida and am buying a home in North Florida pretty much site unseen. Steves photos and thoroughness gave me confidence in my purchase and the work that must be done to make it the best home ever. Thanks Steve and Maria!!!

Steve did an EXCELLENT job with our home inspection. He went over some of the main concerns he found in the house with us and answered all of our questions after his inspection was complete. He was also very prompt! We received our completed inspection report a few hours after the inspection was completed. Steve came highly recommended to us and I would highly recommend him to others.

From my initial contact with Taylor Inspection Services I knew I made the right decision to include Taylor Inspection Services in my new home construction project. Steve Taylor was very thorough spending hours at my home during the construction process. Even on the roof!!! He also spent time educating me along the way and pointing out things that concerned him. His findings were detailed in a comprehensive report which I was able to shared with my builder.

We have had several inspections performed over the years. Steve is far and away the best inspector with whom we've dealt. He works for the folks who hires him -- not realtors or others or want deals done so they can make some $$. He's honest and extremely thorough. His integrity and expertise shows in his work. We just had an inspection done and chose an inspector based on a strong recommendation from our realtor. bad decision -- should have called Steve again!

Outstanding level of attention to detail. Thank you!!
- J.C., April 2017
Mr. Taylor was on time, extremely knowledgeable, and took the time to answer any and all questions I had about the property, as he very methodically inspected the residence. I would highly recommend Mr. Taylor should anyone be looking for a home inspection on Amelia Island or the surrounding area.

Steve is awesome! I was so impressed with him! He is very friendly and is happy to answer any questions you may ask, no matter how big or small. He is very thorough and will go through everything with a fine tooth comb! He is happy for you to follow him around and ask questions about everything. As a first time homebuyer, this was very awesome! I learned a lot! He is very caring and honest! I will recommend him to everyone I know!!!

Steve did an extremely thorough job of inspecting important details and documenting everything. He use infrared technology to test heat, water temps, and AC. He used clear language and even explained where there is a discrepancy in allowable common practice vs. best practice. All of these details were very helpful in guiding me on what repairs to request of the seller. Also, Maria was responsive and helpful before the inspection in educating us on their process, setting an appointment quickly, and staying in communication. I would definitely recommend them!
- J.A., August 2016

Steve and Maria Taylor did an amazing job of squeezing us into the schedule with very short notice. Although this is a brand new home, the inspection Steve provided caught some very minor and simple quality workmanship items that I would not have thought to look for. I would recommend Steve Taylor Inspections to anyone looking to purchase new or used!

Great job, Steve. Katie and I had never used our own home inspector, having previously relied on banks to send inspectors for draw approvals, which always seemed rather cursory to us, but we would never build again without hiring you. Thanks. Mike Norman

Steve is the consummate professional. He is knowledgeable, courteous and genuinely appreciative of your business. Unfortunately, the home inspection business is one that has a dubious reputation for non-qualified people. Steve knows what he is doing and makes it a pleasure to get the inspection you need. I would unreservedly recommend his services to anyone. He sets the industry standard!
