I would recommend Kyle to anyone who is looking for a detailed, clear, and though report that will make negotiating with sellers to get repairs done as well as follow up maintenance and repairs post purchase of the house much easier. (Definitely check out the sample on his site. It is an accurate representation of what you will get and WAY more readable and detailed than most you will find from other inspectors!)
To give a little background, I am a first time home buyer, but my father is a civil and structural engineer. I was very nervous because I knew that the house I was purchasing needed some repairs.
Kyle spent almost 4 hours inspecting the house from top to bottom. He was great with my questions, and was comfortable when my father jumped in. He found a gas leak in the garage and contacted the seller directly to get it taken care of ASAP. He walked me through the radon testing numbers when they came back high, and explained his findings in a clear and not overwhelming way. He also gave me advice about what fixes were big and what items needed fixing but were not a big deal. (IE. I did not need to risk the sale falling though over, if I was ok with doing a little cheep maintenance myself. ^.^)
During negotiations with the sellers, his report was very helpful when the sellers did not want to fix the garage. Because Kyle's report was so detained, we were able to highlight other areas that needed to be fixed from the report that we originally were not going to pursue, in order to get the sellers to still give us a credit.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone! Thank you Kyle!

Kyle did a thorough job of inspecting our townhouse. He quickly followed up to the emails I sent him, he showed up on time, his final report was detailed and the report pictures helped show where his recommendations are located. He left the place as he found it and was very courteous. I would recommend Kyle to anyone needing a property inspection.
- D.S., May 2020
Kyle was excellent. We had our inspection during the “stay at home act” so we we’re not allowed to be present during inspection time, which I was a little worried about at first. Kyle, however gave a a wonderfully detailed report with pictures and explanations. This was our first time buying and having a home inspection and we were able to understand and read through everything in his review.
I would recommended him to anyone.
- C.M., April 2020
Kyle was efficient effective and so very helpful and thorough. The appointment was easy to set up. He came on time and most of all communicated with us clearly and in the depth needed for us to proceed.
- S.K., Madison WI, April 2020
Kyle was awesome! We had a strange situation where we were not able to attend the inspection due to Corona Virus, so we were concerned that the inspection would not catch all of the things that were important to us. But Kyle called and walked us through his process and how thorough he is with taking pictures on all issues that he finds. Once we got the report, we were relieved with just how thorough Kyle was. We feel like we know the in's and out's of the house and we are very comfortable that we know everything that we need to know when e approach a new home!
I would 100% recommend Kyle to anyone who is new to the house buying market! I can't say enough how awesome he was!
- J.S., March 2020
Kyle made the inspection process so easy! From scheduling to the final report he was professional, helpful and knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend Kyle!

- R.L., Verona WI, March 2020
Kyle was very detailed and informative. He pointed out potential issues and explained everything as he went though the inside and outside of the house. He was very thorough and didn't rush. We would definitely recommend his services to others.
- E.S., McFarland WI, March 2020
Excellent work, very informative and willing to answer questions.
- M.A., March 2020
Kyle is an eagle-eyed inspector with lots of good advice. There were no major issues with my condo, but he spotted some things I would never think to check in a thousand years. I appreciated that he backed up his recommendations with evidence--exactly how often he had seen the issue--and with pictures from other homes showing common and worst-case scenarios. He didn't have to, but he gave me simple instructions to fix those issues and patiently answered my questions about some potential improvements. The report has lots of clear, sharp pictures (I saved the one inside the panel for future reference), and it's nice to have some specifics marked in red to help remember what to do after I move in. Thanks!
- B.S., Madison WI, February 2020
Kyle was very thorough and friendly throughout the inspection. As he noted things for the report, he discussed them as well and provided insight on issue resolution and maintenance which is a nice cherry on top of the thorough inspection. I would definitely recommend Kyle to new buyers like ourselves.
- R.S., February 2020
Kyle always does a great job. I would recommend him to anyone and trust him again and again with any property. Take my word for it, you won't regret hiring him. Very thorough, knowledgeable, and detailed.

- J.P., February 2020
Level of detail was very thorough and straight forward. Report was easy to understand and navigate. These made it easy to understand what was being explained. Kyle gave good explanations and answers that clarified anything we did not understand. His answers were short and straight to the point. Definitely recommend Kyle for anyone who is looking for an expert in his field.
- F.M., Madison WI, January 2020
This is the second home Kyle has inspected for us, each time he was very thorough and took the time to not only show us what issues he found but also tell us why he thought they were an issue. When we asked he gave some ideas of what it would take to correct an issue or make it compliant to code. He took the time to answer any questions we had and show us how a new to us appliance works. Thank you Kyle.
- B.H., Hartland WI, January 2020
Thanks for your thorough home inspection! We appreciate your expertise! The detailed report provided excellent descriptions and recommendations.

We would highly recommend Kyle Beckstrom for your home inspection needs.
- A.D., January 2020
Kyle was extremely thorough in his inspection of our home. The inspection report was detailed, clear, easy to understand, and included pictures that were very helpful.

I would highly recommend Kyle for anyone who is looking for a home inspection.
- M.G., January 2020
Kyle was great! He truly inspects your home as if he is the one purchasing it. He does a great job of looking over every detail and informing you on issues that could arise or fixes that could be made. As others say, he is great with explaining things in an honest and easy way to digest. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying a home. He helps take the worry out of the process and gives you the information you need to make informed decisions!

- R.Q., January 2020
I really appreciate the service you provided and the friendly way it which you did it. I felt that you strove to provide a complete & full out-brief, the subsequent report was available within hours, and it was a high quality document. I appreciate that you took and showed me pictures on scene and then later, in the report, the added annotations were helpful and spot-on to what you initially highlighted. While I can't say I am in a circle that is likely to be needing to utilize your services, I most assuredly would recommend you I - and I will absolutely recommend you to all of the professionals involved in my own journey.

- C.S., Madison WI, August 2019
- T.N., August 2019

Walked through the possible issues before we left and provided a written report same day. Very friendly and professional. Would recommend.
- M.Z., July 2019

Kyle's reports are very clear, well-illustrated and easy to understand. And during the inspections he patiently offered explanations of conditions he noticed and their severity.
I would recommend Kyle's services to anyone; thank you!
- R.F., April 2019

- M.G., April 2019
It was great working with you Kyle. You were patient with me and all of my questions and gave meaningful answers. We feel confident about our home purchase after your thorough inspection. I also appreciated the commentary about what you considered serious problems as opposed to "that could be better, but it's not a big deal" comments. I learned a lot from following you around, and I appreciate the education as much as the inspection service.
- R.R., March 2019
You did a very thorough job of inspecting property and explaining each finding. I liked that you added in potential ways of fixing various issues. I also liked the homeowners booklet you provided at the end of the inspection. Overall an amazing experience. I will definitely use your services again!

- R.O., Sun Priarie WI, March 2019
Kyle was all we could ask for in a home inspector! He was friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable during the entire inspection and his attention to detail really stood out in the report he produced. The report was very detailed with pictures, circles, and arrows pointing out exactly what we should be looking at and making reccomendations for what should be addressed. I tagged along for the whole inspection and managed to learn a lot about our future home, about maintenance, and about what types of repairs or improvements I might want to make in the future. My partner wasn?t there, but was completely up to speed after reviewing the report.
Can?t say enough good things about Kyle!
- M.A., March 2019

Thank you so much for the thorough inspection report! You went into great detail and helped me feel confident in my first-home buying experience. I really appreciate it!
- M.R., February 2019
Kyle was great. He weathered one of the worst storms the area has seen in years to meet me at a property out in Stoughton. He was incredibly thorough in his walkthrough, spotting things I wouldn't have seen in a million years. The report was much better than expected, with all the things we discussed in person written down and photographed. There are even annotations on the photographs themselves to pinpoint the issues. He was fair and unbiased when identifying and evaluating each issue, and knowledgable enough to explain the context of why it existed, all in layman's terms.
- W.M., Los Angeles CA, February 2019
Kyle was highly recommended to us by our realtor, and he did not disappoint! He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. He took the time to point out areas of concern and explain the reasons behind anything that was a potential issue. He also took the time to walk us through everything, even the minor things and explain why they are incorrect. He gives you a very thorough and detailed report with pictures. I will recommend Kyle to everybody I know and will use him in the future if I every need a home inspection again. Thanks Kyle.
- P.D., Greenfield WI, January 2019
Kyle was spectacular, and as a first-time homebuyer he explained things in a way that made it easy to conceptualize. Perhaps the best part of his inspection was how he didn't just say what was wrong, but how he explained why and what it meant in the short and long term. Then he provided a fantastic report complete with annotated pictures. Will definitely use him again!
- M.A., January 2019
Kyle was did a great job. Very professional.
- C.W., January 2019
Kyle, thank you for everything during the inspection on Monday! I really appreciated you walking me through everything, especially the water heater, furnace and water softener. My husband and I are condo owners and this will be our first home where we will have to maintain those items and it was incredibly helpful to learn about them. I would highly recommend Kyle for an inspection and plan on using him in the future too! Thanks again!
- O.H., January 2019
We were very satisfied with Kyle. He was punctual, thorough, friendly, and patient. He didn't mind us following him around the house, and was excellent at pointing out and explaining the concerns and potential issues he found.

We would definitely recommend Kyle to friends and family, and use him again if we ever move.
- F.C., Middleton WI, January 2019
Kyle was professional and prompt. Took the time to be thorough and make sure we understood why issues were marked, and never rushed us. Would definitely call him again!

He was extremely thorough, made a few stops to give us an update on what he was seeing as he performed the inspection, he took his type and I am confident I was on his best interest. Very knowledgeable and approachable individual. We had a great experience.
- A.M., Verona WI, November 2018
We found Kyle?s business on Yelp, where he had many outstanding reviews and he did not disappoint. He is skilled, knowledgeable, thorough, and we truly believe he approached our inspection as if he were considering buying the home for himself. We especially appreciated the ease with which we could generate a request list for the seller to consider.
- L.H., October 2018
Kyle's inspection was very timely, detailed and complete. His report was well documented with pictures which made it much easier to visualize what he saw. The report was also well organized and flowed nicely. He is the most knowledgeable home inspector I have used and would recommend him to anyone looking for a property survey
- M.L., GAITHERSBURG MD, October 2018

- m.W., Lakemoor IL, October 2018
Knowledgable, friendly, sat down and took the time to make sure we understood the finer points of the inspection. Would recommend!

I can not say enough positive things about Kyle, and his business!
- B.W., Stoughton, September 2018
Kyle was thorough, careful and complete in the level of detail of his inspection and being there in person to allow him to show me the findings was incredibly helpful for me in understanding what needed to be done and how significant each of the findings was. It was a very good experience and money well spent to know what the defects were and advice on how to correct them. Very valuable indeed! I definitely will use Kyle again for any future work I may need done.
- G.H., Fitchburg WI, September 2018
I have nothing negative to report about Kyle's inspection of my Condo. He arrived on time and was as thorough as I could have asked.
He went through every point that is on the report with my agent and I and explained in depth how to address each issue.
The report itself is exceptional in that every issue is documented with photos of each issue which makes it much easier to find and fix every problem.
I would recommend Kyle to anyone looking for a thorough and professional inspection of their domicile.
- A.S., September 2018
Kyle took his time walked me through the basics of the house and identified essential things like where the main water shut off was and location of the power trippers for each section of the house. His report was thorough and focused on the important things. I would HIGHLY recommend Kyle to anyone looking to have their home or systems within their home inspected.
- M.P., Madison WI, September 2018
Very thorough job. Got us the report very quickly. Very professional. Highly recommend!
- R.E., September 2018
Mr Beckstrom was prompt and very professional. He took his time and pointed all defects as he found them and gave me ideas on how they could be remedied.

Thank you so much,
John & Barb Switzky
- J.S., DeForest WI, August 2018
Kyle was fantastic. He was incredibly thorough and careful. What was extra helpful was that he let me follow him around and pester him with questions about my house-to-be and didn't make me feel stupid for asking. Additionally, he seems to be truly driven by doing right by his customers. Taking responsibility for a house can be a scary thing, but Kyle gave me more confidence by helping me understand what to watch for. I would recommend him highly.
- M.B., August 2018
Kyle was thorough, honest, and very helpful throughout the process, answering my questions and sharing his knowledge. Also, just a really nice guy all around.

- K.D., August 2018
We feel Kyle was very thorough and methodical and did not seem to harbor any biased or prejudice to any part of the property or process. We will definitely share our recommendation to use Kyle whenever our friend or family are in need in the Madison area.
- J.K., Stoughton WI, July 2018
Kyle, I think you did an incredible job on my home inspection! You were extremely thorough. You had the report available within a day of the inspection with an itemized list of what you found during your inspection. The report was very easy to follow along and the arrows, boxes or other indicators on the picture made it very easy to see what you were referring to. I let a friend see the report and she said that their inspector didn't do half the work you did, nor provided them with as much information. I also appreciate the fact I got to follow you around and ask questions about the inspection process. Thank you!!
- J.Y., Stoughton, July 2018
Phenomenal job with the inspection and does not miss anything! Kyle is very thorough and really gets to know the house in the short time he is there. His attention to detail really shows in the awesome report that is delivered that same day! Will definitely be recommending him to friends and family, and will definitely be getting my business on my next home inspection!
- J.H., July 2018
Kyle was prompt, through, and so easy to work with! As a nervous home-buyer I appreciated the time he took to show me things during the inspection and his report was detailed, and easy to read. He answered all of my questions and set us up not just for a successful home purchase, but to be successful homeowners. It is easy clear that he knows his stuff and enjoys the work he does!
