Vince Johnson & Greg Patterson

Guiding Light Inspections, LLC offers high quality, comprehensive home inspections at a reasonable, flat rate price. Our construction backgrounds allow us to not only identify potential concerns with your new home but also explain any concerns in a manner that is understandable. We have been full time inspectors for over twelve years perfoming literally over five thousand inspections in the Kansas City market. Not many inspectors in Kansas City have been able to evaluate that many properties. We have been able to inspect so many properties for many years because of our reputation of high quality, detailed inspections. After years of inspecting poorly and improperly installed radon mitigation/reduction systems we decided two years ago to also provide this service. We are licensed and certified to install radon mitigation/reduction systems. We have installed and maintained over 150 systems to date which are done correctly. Why not have the company who inspects your home and is testing for radon install the system if needed. This way you know the system is installed properly, per code by a licensed company. Please contact Guiding Light Inspections, LLC if we can be of service to you in the home buying process.

Vince and Greg are excellent with regards to all aspects of the inspections. They are incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. I have repeat clients that would not choose anyone else because they feel that their inspections are so informational and complete. It is nice to trust that you have an inspector that covers it all and helps the buyer understand each aspect.

Always will recommend Vince and the team. I appreciate their scheduling times. My favorite part about working with Vince and Guiding Light is their focus on informing my buyers of the true issues on their new home without making them feel anxious. This is a great team of people to have on your side when buying a home.

- N.T., June 2013
Greg was very accommodating of a last minute request to conduct the inspection on our home. He was very professional and thorough. The inspection was for a new build job and we weren't sure if we even needed to have one completed. However, the information from the report provided us with peace of mind and a better understanding of the construction of the home. It also provided us with a check list of some items that needed attention before we closed on the purchase. I highly recommend Guiding Light for a home inspection.
- N.H., Overland Park KS, June 2013

My realtor and I were late meeting with Vince and he waited around for us so he could go over the inspection, which was greatly appreciated! He did a great job of answering questions and explaining details of his inspection to us and we never felt rushed, even though we knew he stayed late to meet with us. He was very professional and helpful when discussing his findings.

The home re-inspection from Guiding Light was far more detailed than the inspection I had from another company 11 years ago when I bought my house. You pointed out some good issues for me to look at. You gave me piece of mind on other concerns that I had prior to the inspection.

You're the man & I'm glad to be working w/ you again!
