- A.F., December 2019
Ken did an amazing job explaining any damages he found in his thorough inspection. He missed nothing. One thing I think he could have done to leave no questions is comment that the fence belonged to the neighbors and that's why he didn't include that in his report.
- J.C., November 2019
Thank you for such excellent service. Photos and explanation to findings ,both good and bad has helped so much . I will definitely recommend your services.

Ken was highly recommend and we are happy we selected him. He found several items that were not obvious. I especially liked that he didn?t rush the inspection and gave really detailed and informative answers to questions.
The report he produced was about 50 pages, included many pictures and details of required and recommended repairs. We were thoroughly impressed. He also provides an additional service to do a return inspection to check on the repairs.
We will recommend Ken and will use him for future purchases.

Mr. Melton was easy to work with right from the first phone call. Right to the point and professional. Made the appointment that worked for me with no hassles. Mr. Melton also gave details of what he?d inspect. On the day of inspection he was early, not just on time. Once he started inspected, he had us tag along so I could see what he was seeing and detailed what he was doing and answered any questions I had about concerns. He also explained to me any findings and why they were problems every step of the way which helped me make decisions on what worked needed to be done. Which put my mind at ease for buying the house we wanted!!

Ken Melton and his son were very prompt. Working as a team, they completed the inspection quickly without compromising quality.

They do quality work and take a genuine interest in helping the home buyer be aware of any problems in the home so that they can request the seller to make necessary repairs and move in with peace of mind.

- V.L., Destin FL, November 2017
Thank you for the thorough and prompt report. The pictures were particularly helpful and made it easy to negotiate with the seller. The ability to share the report via the internet was very convenient and made it possible to move forward quickly.
- S.D., October 2017
Ken and his son Ken are two very good professionals! They were thorough with the inspection process. He went over his findings on site and answered all of our questions and concerns. The follow up report was just as informative and detailed. I appreciate that it is loaded online and is easy to navigate. He even gives his recommendations for the issues he has found. I highly recommend Ken!
- H.F., October 2017
I have had home inspections done before on several homes, but NONE of the other inspections were done better than this one. All of the information given to me after the inspection was not just in writing but explained issues identified and was accompanied by pictures to back up findings.
- C.W., September 2017
Absolute professional! On time and very detailed and great prices. Will definetely use again!
- J.H., August 2017
Great work! Thank you!
- S.G., Portsmouth VA, August 2017

Thanks so much!
- J.M., July 2017
Thanks again Ken for performing our inspection on a short notice. Your team showed up right on time and did a very through job. Use me for a reference anytime.
- P.G., June 2017
Was very thorough and found things (such as a possible crack in the slab/foundation) that were critical to making a smart decision in the purchase (or lack thereof) of the property. Maybe pricier than the competitors, but worth the extra cost.
His son was also very helpful and knowledgeable to help get a more efficient and comprehensive inspection done.
- A.C., Chesapeake VA, June 2017
Very thorough and accurate, I highly recommend!
- J.B., May 2017
Great inspection, very thorough.
- T.D., May 2017
We have used Ken twice now and had great results both times. I like that he gives you an idea about the fix needed and who should be consulted on the repair. In addition, he usually responds pretty quickly to get to the location and we got our report within 48 hours after the inspection! Will definitely recommend him to anyone I know who needs an inspection.
- J.J., April 2017
Ken great job by you and your son I would highly recommend your services to all of my friends!
- S.H., March 2017
Ken, thank you for a wonderful and thorough house inspection. The couple that owns the condo I am wanting to purchase commented on your curtesy, professionalism, and wonderful personality. In this case, the couple has to move because of health issues; they love their home. Your presence was soothing, for what is a difficult move for them. I would recommend Mr. Ken Melton for any Home Inspection. Thank you!
- G.O., March 2017
Ken and his son are absolute Superstar Inspectors! They didn't only do a complete home inspection, but they also provided a lot of excellent ideas on how to take advantage of all the extra space this home provides. Thank you!
- J.Z., March 2017
I cannot recommend Ken more highly. Not only did he impress me (a PhD in engineering), but he also impressed my father, who has been a contractor and home builder for over 30 years. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable, and provided a frank and actionable account of the issues that arose during the inspection in his report. The report itself proved extremely helpful in generating the PICRA, particularly given that I am unrepresented by a Realtor for this purchase and the property is for sale by owner. Ken not only listed the defects, but also provided recommendations with regard to remediation and the level of knowledge/certification of the person who should be completing the repairs. I have already recommended Ken to a few friends who will be purchasing homes in the near future, and I glad that he was recommended to me. I have, in a past purchase in Pennsylvania, not been so lucky with my choice of a home inspector and later became aware of problems that a more skilled inspector like Ken likely would have documented. Ken provides great value at a very reasonable cost, and gave me great confidence that I had an accurate understanding of the property I'd be purchasing.
- K.C., March 2017
Although we did not have the electricity on at time of the home inspection, Ken agreed to return to inspect that as well once the electricity was turned on. Thank you for being thorough.
- A.B., February 2017
Ken and his son inspected our first home 1/14/17. They did an excellent job finding everything we needed to know about the home. Even stuff that wasn't a major issue, they still pointed out and informed us about it. Very affordable and they offer a $20 off if your a first time home buyer! Great job guys!
- N.M., January 2017
Ken was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Offered a 1st time buyers discount. Report is easy to read with pictures & diagrams.
- E.M., January 2017
Ken was great! He and his son were well above and beyond what I expected, and I'm grateful for their knowledge and expertise, which helped save me a great deal of money in the purchase process. Highly recommend!
- A.R., December 2016
Awesome job, Ken was very meticulous and we were impressed.
- A.B., December 2016
Ken was on time and very thourough, Knowledgeable and friendly
- K.G., November 2016
Ken and his son were completely thorough during the property inspection process. Experienced and knowledgeable, they documented details that could be easily unnoticed. They were professionally freiendly, and easily approachable for questions and concerns.
Ken brought forth unknown issues, that saved me from purchasing a house with severe underlying issues. He saved me from unwanted, expensive projects. I highly recommend his service to everyone.
Once I find another "dream home", you can rest assured I will be contacting Ken once again. Thank you!
- J.R., October 2016
Very professional and detailed inspection! I would highly recommend and seek out on future homes!! Thank you again for a job well done!!
- A.O., September 2016
Mr. Melton and his son are both high quality professionals. Both showed a tenacity for their work and both showed they care about the overall quality of your property through their recommendations and evaluations. I chose them over about 4 other highly rated inspectors in the Hampton Roads area because I suspected their family business would give me a higher quality than a larger business. Their military discount was nice too. Would recommend.
- Z.V., August 2016
Ken and his son were very professional and helpful with our first ever home inspection. He was very easy to talk and communicate with during the process. Overall, we highly recommend him!
- D.O., August 2016
Ken is very meticulous and professional, amazingly detailed report with pictures and explanations. Overall great experience and inspection was scheduled very quickly. Thanks again Ken!
- S.P., August 2016
Our family is very grateful to you and your son for the absolutely thorough home inspection. You and Ken Jr. examined every detail of the home which in the end helped us to determine our next steps towards a home purchase. We loved how you reviewed the details of the inspection with photos of each aspect discussed immediately following the inspection. The pictorial report and written comments were sent to us in a very timely manner. We also appreciated that you were available to us following the home inspection for any additional questions. Your work ethic, trustworthiness, and integrity are noteworthy attributes; these qualities are rare in today's world. We would recommend your services to others without hesitation. We would also welcome the opportunity to work with you and your son in the future.

Ken was pleasant and very thorough. I highly recommend him.
- E.K., May 2016
Ken was recommended not only by our real estate agent but also by our son who had used his services when purchasing a home. Ken was courteous, timely and answered all of our questions. He spent time doing his work and then spent time with us showing us where everything was, how everything worked and provided tips on how to effectively use the HVAC systems during the summer and winter months. We went over the inspection findings providing suggestions and ideas as to how to better address the issues found. Ken is truly a professional!
- T.P., May 2016
The entire process was a joy. Ken was very thorough and took time to look beneath the surface. He made me feel very comfortable that he was not going to miss anything of consequence. His responses to me and the seller agent were direct and informative. The HomeGuage portal is useful and user friendly. Thanks Ken for taking the time and making our experience less stressful.
