Andy was great and very informative during the inspection. He definitely saved me from a nightmare and he has earned my business 100% as I continue to search for houses
- M.B., January 2020
Andy was recommended to me by my Redfin agent - and I couldn't have been more pleased. Even with the ability to take care of every inspection (home, chimney, termite, radon) with one contractor is enough to warrant a big plus - but Andy was really knowledgeable and forthcoming throughout the inspection. He was 100% receptive to all of the questions I had. Super helpful and thorough - - - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
- L.G., January 2020
Andy was very thorough and easy to talk to about the entire inspection and process and was able to answer any questions we had.
- E.B., December 2019
Andy was extremely thorough and wonderful to work with. He made great suggestions and the homeowner followed through with the most pressing issues that he found. I would recommend him to anyone buying a new home!
- P.S., November 2019
Mr. Warde is truly passionate about his business and cares for the well being of his clients. Mr. Warde is very knowledgeable about homes and is part inspector and part detective. Please consider using his services.

Many thanks Andrew
- R.M., October 2019
Andrew completed home, chimney, radon and termite inspections for our property purchase. He demonstrated hugely impressive knowledge of all subject matter, a reassuring attention to detail and great professionalism. As another testimonial has already stated, accompanying him throughout the inspection is an education in itself as he discusses not just areas of concern but useful tips to help with maintenance going forward. Comprehensive reports were received within 24 hours of completion and included extremely helpful diagrams and other photos to illustrate certain points so that they could easily be understood. I cannot recommend Andrew highly enough and certainly feel reassured that we understand all important factors necessary not only to progress with our house purchase but to monitor and maintain it effectively in the years to come. Thank you, Andrew!
- J.D., September 2019
Andrew is incredibly thorough and knowledgeable about every aspect of the home inspection process. His attention to detail is exceptional. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to any potential home buyer.

Andrew inspected a condo very thoroughly and pointed out every tiny detail. He explained me how to use and maintain HVAC and other equipment installed. He did radon test and termite inspection at the same time with home inspection which was very convenient. And I got inspection report next morning which helped to close very quickly. I am very satisfied with his services and definitely would recommend his services to everyone!
- E.G., August 2019
Accompanying Andy during an inspection is an education and worth the price even beyond getting the inspection report. In addition to being knowledgeable and thorough, he made certain to explain to us what he was looking at and the implications for us as potential home owners.

Andy performed a perfectly thorough inspection of our future home, pointing out innumerable small and large flaws in the structure which had been invisible to us prior to his revealing them. We strongly recommend him to any buyers in need of an inspection.
- T.C., June 2019
Extremely thorough inspection. Andy walked me through everything and answered all my questions. Even questions that were basic for a new home owner. He was very professional and took his time to make sure all aspects of the home were evaluated. Will absolutely recommend him to others.
- G.W., June 2019
Andrew was fantastic. Not only did he answer on a weekend, he answered during a holiday weekend. He was transparent about his schedule and we were able to schedule an appointment that met both of our needs.
Andrew was very thorough with his inspection of the home and he made sure that we understood everything he said. He also kept us updated throughout the inspection. Again, he was great! I highly recommend.
- L.L., June 2019
Andrew was fantastic! First he answered calls and emails over the weekend which allowed for a quick turnaround time. When he arrived at the property, he was thorough and explained every detail in laymen?s terms. He checked for understanding and did not rush through the inspection. He was phenomenal.
- L.L., May 2019
Andy did a great and extremely thorough job. He was personable as well as professional. Would definitely recommend him to a friend.
- E.M., May 2019
Andy was incredibly knowledgable and very thorough. He took the time to ensure that my husband and I understood every part of the inspection and answered every question we had. He is very personable and we enjoyed learning from him. His inspections are high quality and I would highly recommend him!
- M.S., May 2019
A great inspector, he got through everything in a short amount of time and was very straight forward. He even went the extra mile and returned to the house to get aerial shots of the roof since it was raining during the inspection. Highly recommend.
- A.F., May 2019
Andy is fantastic. Very thorough! Final report was ready the next day. He takes his time to be sure the client understands all of the issues. Also, he is certified in radon and termite inspections which makes it really convenient. I highly recommend Andy!
- F.P., May 2019
Thanks Andrew for answering all of our 101 questions and having our report ready in such a short amount of time. We definitely will recommend you for anyone looking for a detailed thorough home inspection.
- L.B., May 2019
Fantastic experience, very detailed and thorough. Explained everything he found, and what I meant to us as homeowners. Everything thing that Andrew pointed out, the builder agreed to fix. Would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Class act.
- J.W., May 2019
I have called upon Andy many times over the past several years for my home inspections. He has become a trusted friend and the most reliable home inspector I know. Because I am on a Team, I don't always have the luxury of choosing the home inspection company I use. As a result, I have had an opportunity to work with many other home inspectors. While they all do a fine job, none can compare with Andy, both in the way he deals with buyers and his attention to detail of every facet of the inspection. I can sum Andrew Warde up in three words: dependable, reliable, integrity!
- M.B., April 2019
Andy was a pleasure to work with during my home inspection. He was very thorough and knowledgeable . He was very patient and willing to answer any and all questions that I had during the process. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspection. Thank you!!!
- A.F., April 2019

Andy was extremely thorough, and he kept me updated throughout the inspection. His report really helped capture the items he was seeing. I would highly recommend him.
- D.E., February 2019
Arrived at the home a half hour early and had already inspected the roof before we arrived. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Andrew spent several hours on the property answering all of our questions.

We were extremely satisfied with the report and would absolutely use Andrew for any future inspections.
- T.C., February 2019

- D.M., November 2018
You could tell Andrew has been in the business for a while. He was thorough throughout the home inspection and did not cut any corners. He was very informative and gave and honest unbiased opinion. He also has a website that is extremely user friendly. It was a pleasure working with Andrew.
- P.T., November 2018
So thorough and willing to explain everything he finds. Super helpful with any follow up questions as well.

- J.S., November 2018
Andy is an amazing inspector, thorough and excellent knowledge. He has a wonderful demeanor with his clients and helps them learn more about the home and to be good homeowners in the future, Don?t hesitate to hire Andy to help with your home inspection services.

- A.W., October 2018
Andrew is extremely helpful and I would recommend him to everyone. His inspection are long because he goes through everything that a buyer must know. He explains everything in details very clearly. I was so surprised to know all that was wrong with the house. I ended up not closing the house.
- S.K., September 2018
Great. Not only thorough and professional inspection, but also many invaluable advice about the house.
- S.P., September 2018
Andy was such a huge help during my home inspection! In addition to being extremely thorough and knowledgeable in his inspection of my potential home, he took the time to explain and teach me things to know about my house. He was patient with my questions and provided specific suggestions for variables I may need to consider in the future which was very helpful and informative. His written report was clear and the pictures and details provide will again be helpful for me well beyond this initial home buying experience. Thank you Andy!
- A.D., September 2018
Andy is a great combination of professional and personable. He arrived on time and was ready to get started as I pulled up. During the inspection he walked me through the issues that were found and explained the potential problems that may occur if the issues were not addressed. He provided options on how to take care of many of the problems and even told me how he addressed similar issues on his own property. Andy is very thorough and is well worth the fee charged. He came highly recommended by a well-respected source. I have used Andy’s services on multiple properties and plan to use him in the future as well. I wholeheartedly recommend Andrew Warde for your property inspection needs.
- Z.S., September 2018
He is very knowledgeable. Explained all the issues and potential problems associated with each issue.
- B.G., September 2018
Thorough, Professional and Congenial!!! Not just inspection on a new house, but learning a lot how to look into a residential property from a prospective buyer. Strongly recommended.
- S.P., September 2018
Andy, both my husband and I were so extremely happy with the inspection you carried out. First of all, your prices were quite competitive, even though our realtor said that you are the absolute best and do such an incredibly higher quality job than many other inspectors! First, we found it really convenient that you are qualified not only to do the general home inspection, but also to do the termite inspection and the radon testing. And even though you said the chimneys were not within your scope, you were still able to check them out and provide a lot of helpful information regarding these. You were not only on time, but you were at the house early and had already been up on the roof (AND assisted our future neighbors with their fence!) by the time we arrived at the actual time for which the inspection was set! My husband and I both tend to have high expectations and appreciate attention to detail and you were so absolutely thorough and diligent, really examining every aspect of the home in more descriptive detail than we could have hoped. We also really liked that you gave us a choice - we first met and you were really friendly and disarming, and you said that during the inspection, we could either just sit and hang out amongst ourselves but were also very welcome to walk around with you and that you'd be happy to explain everything to us as you went along. During the inspection, my husband went around the entire house with you. You used your modern equipment to obtain the most accurate readings for everything, and showed through your explanations how knowledgeable you truly are - going past generic and one-dimensional statements of an issue and actually walking us through the science behind it (ex: when pointing out an old fan in the attic, you began talking about the air cross-currents and thermal energy that were creating ventilation dead zones in this section of the house)! You gave us an estimate of how much time the inspection would take, and you finished about 20 minutes before this, and we really appreciated how respectful you were about staying within the time frame you told us. Honestly, from the high praises our realtor (who we really like and respect tremendously) gave you, we knew you would do an excellent job. However, after the inspection, I am happy to write this extremely long-winded positive review so that other homebuyers and other potentially anxious first-time homebuyers like ourselves can have this part of the process be that much easier and more pleasant by hiring you as their home inspector. We know, for sure, that if and when we purchase a new home again, you will be the one we ask. Thank you for going above and beyond, and for being so great at your job!
- E.S., August 2018
The process toward home ownership includes so many unknowns. Andy's thorough inspection leaves no stone unturned. After walking through the inspection with him and reading his report, we feel like we "know" the home. He documents objectively and thoroughly. We are grateful to Andy for his professionalism and knowledge.
- L.D., August 2018
Andrew is very knowledgeable in this field and very detail and patience. He also equip with very expensive and professional tools like drone and thermal imager etc. Usually you only can see these equiments in the military. He is the best!
- H.F., August 2018
Andy is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. His inspections are very objective in presenting the good and bad aspects of each property. He is a consummate professional.
- L.G., August 2018
Super thorough, very pleasant to work with. Incredibly responsive to questions. If we don't end up getting this home, we will use him for any future inspection needs.
- J.S., August 2018
Andy was friendly and thorough, obviously very knowledgeable in regards to home inspecting. He completed the inspection and provided the report the next morning, exactly like he said he would.
- E.S., July 2018
Twice now I've witnessed a home inspection with Andrew. First for my roommate who was buying a house and now for my own first home purchase. Andrew was very patient and explained everything simply on things to watch out for and suggestions for the house in an unbiased manner. His report was thorough and my agents were even impressed at the report provided for the home. Throughout the whole home buying process Andrew's part in the home inspection has been the smoothest and most trusted aspect in this whole journey. Thanks again Andrew!
- D.P., July 2018
Would absolutely recommend Andrew Warde! He came highly recommended from our agent when we purchased a home and I continue to recommend him now that I am an agent. He is very detail oriented and is willing to explain anything. He is constantly up to date with changes in the industry and is extremely knowledgeable and approachable. My clients were very happy with his work. Thank you again Andy!
- K.P., July 2018
You are the best! Your interaction with the clients is professional. You have this way of always puting the client at ease. You are to be admired for always giving your client the best possible experience in what can be a very nerve racking situation. Your knowledge and reports are awesome. You stand above all other home inspectors!
- M.R., Ellicott City MD, June 2018
Inspection was very thorough and Andrew was very good at explaining what he was doing and the reasoning. Also gave advice on maintenance and was able to answer all of my questions. I definitely feel much more informed going into the purchasing of this new house.
- G.Y., May 2018
Very thorough job and excellent report!
- H.H., May 2018
I have absolutely no reservations recommending Andy to other potential home buyers. His final report was incredibly detailed. I have seen other reports and Andy's exceeds them all by a wide margin in both detail and usefulness. During the inspection process, he is very engaging and showing you things about the home that will help you as the new owner of the home. For a number of reasons, we opted not to move forward with this particular home purchase. That said, we will be using Andy again to inspect the next house we seek to buy.
- E.G., May 2018
Very thorough. Delivered exactly what we needed.
- M.G., May 2018
Exceptional by every measure. The attention to detail, clarity and thoroughness of descriptions and explanations, and professionalism shown are more than worthy of my investment. I'm a completely satisfied repeat customer.
- G.M., April 2018
Andrew Warde provided the most thorough home inspection I've ever seen. I have only bought 3 properties and sold 2, but my mother is a realtor with over 30 years experience. In walking through several or her properties with her and consulting with her, I was impressed by the detailed report including photographs that was provided to me. Mr. Warde is higher priced than most other inspectors, but I felt that he was definitely worth the added cost. When I consulted with professional contractors to review the remediation cited and recommended by Mr. Warde, I was complimented on the good inspection report that I was able to send to my contractors to discuss what repairs I would need to do on the house. Thank you for such an excellent report. I feel very informed about the issues that the house presents to me and know how to balance my home repair and maintenance budget for the property.
- T.Y., April 2018
Andrew Warde was leaps and bounds over what I'd expected from folks I'd heard from about home inspectors. Some of the rumors spoke of short and detail-less inspections rife with skipping things and unanswered questions. Andy is none of these things. He gives an exceptional home inspection report on anything and everything he notices, including informational things such as "Here is the main water shut off valve", check valves, gas and electric shutoff switches, etc. Being a first-time home-buyer, these things were important to me and I didn't even have to ask about them. He has an attention to detail that may rival my old drill instructor's field day inspections, a vast knowledge base that encompasses everything I asked about (deck construction, Maryland building code, major utilities, foundational and structural inquiries, roofing best practices, preferred or recommended maintenance schedules, electrical, pests, etc), and the tech to back up his inspections (drones with cameras, thermal imaging, etc) and easily show the lay man such as myself what is going on. Would recommend 10/10
- B.H., April 2018
Andy is a superb home inspector: honest, thorough, observant, helpful. He charges a very reasonable rate. Seven years ago, he inspected my home before I purchased it. Twice since then, I have asked Andy to perform preventative maintenance home inspections to identify issues in my home. He spotted important issues that I would have easily missed, and has probably saved me many thousands of dollars in the long run. I can't recommend him highly enough.
- B.S., April 2018
Andy was both accommodating, knowledgeable, and thorough! He was willing to answer questions about his report and findings after the fact which was helpful as we navigated the repair negotiations with the seller. I would certainly recommend Andy's services and wouldn't hesitate to use him again in the future.
- E.S., March 2018
I was a first time home buyer and Andrew was very patient. He took the time to educate me on the home being inspected and offered very good advice. The report was very detailed and informative. I was confident in my decision after this experience. I would recommend
- N.B., March 2018
Mr. Warde was very thorough when inspecting a home my fiancee and I were considering buying. His professionalism and attention to detail allowed us to make the well informed decision to walk away from the house which, as Mr. Warde pointed out, had several critical issues with it that was not addressed by the sellers. He very patiently discussed and educated my fiancee and I about all of the discrepancies he noticed and was able to speak authoritatively concerning several aspects of house construction, repair, and maintenance. Mr. Warde's expertise was an invaluable asset in our decision-making process and we will be sure to request him specifically in all of our home purchases in the future.
- B.S., March 2018
Andy is incredibly thorough in his inspections. If there's something "not right" he'll find it and report it. He does exactly that...reports what he sees. In my opinion, an inspector's job is to tell the customer the condition of the property and help them understand what may need to be done to correct it. He provides websites where you can read more about the issue. I highly recommend Andy all the time!
- J.S., Columbia MD, February 2018
Andrew is very thorough and detail oriented. He covers all aspects of a home inspection.
- A.G., February 2018
Andrew always does the most thorough job.
Also his "bedside" demeanor is the best.
He keep the client informed but does not scare them
Top notch HI!
- J.B., Columbia MD, January 2018
Andy is a very savvy, methodical, and detail-oriented Home Inspector. His state-of-the-art sets of tech tools (including infra red technology and Drones) enables him to access every part of the home (and roof) and spot problems/anomalies that would otherwise be missed! His reports are prompt (next day), detailed (with pictures), and filled with useful repair/replace suggestions! He is the best in what he does!
- E.T., November 2017
Andrew provides a top quality, thorough inspection and a report with photos that is very easy to understand ! I have used his services twice, and would use him again without question !!
- J.P., November 2017
- M.O., September 2017
Very thorough and detailed. Clients and I appreciate the level of care.
- S.A., September 2017
This is my third inspection done by Andy Warde. I asked my realtor to have Mr. Warde perform my last two inspections. His work is thorough and thoughtful. His recommendations are well balanced. When I am making such a large purchase, I want this kind of inspector to give me an honest assessment of what issues I will need to address. I highly recommend Andy and have great confidence in his evaluations.
- J.B., Fulton MD, September 2017
Andy always does a great job doesn't miss a thing ! His reports are easy to understand and helpful for the customers.
- P.W., September 2017
Andy didn't miss a thing, documented everything amply, and gave suggestions for how to resolve even things that were not within the official scope of the report. We now know a lot more about the property we have purchased!
- M.P., August 2017
I was looking to buy a older home, almost 100 years old. Andy came out and did an incredibly thorough inspection. We were out there for a couple hours, but Andy was always explaining what he was finding and what it meant for the home, and for me if I decided to purchase. Any questions I had he answered very well and in layman's terms, so I could understand exactly what he was saying. Would highly recommend him to everyone looking to purchase a home.
- M.W., August 2017
Incredibly thorough and diligent! I feel confident that he found any and all current issues as well as potential future issues to include in my budget. He took his time (about two and a half to 3 hours!) and inspected all nooks and crannies. He was very professional and great to work with! I would (and will) recommend him to anyone in need of a home inspection!
- K.C., August 2017
Andy is the ultimate professional! He is extremely thorough and knows his stuff. I am always confident recommending Andy to our clients. He is our top choice for all inspections!
- S.M., Columbia MD, July 2017
All my clients really appreciate your high quality inspection; there is nothing at all left to wonder about!...My real estate clients always comment that they had no idea that it would be such a complete inspection and follow-up report. "Everyone is always very pleased." "Yours inspections are by far the most thorough, complete and detailed inspections that anyone has ever witnessed. Equally impressive is the graciousness and courtesy with which you treat both buyer and seller. Your attitude of respect not only makes the seller comfortable, it contributes to the non-adversarial atmosphere....You contribute to facilitating the sale." Thank you Andy! Janice Saint Vincent, Real Estate Professional.
- , July 2017
Andy was fantastic. The inspection was very thorough going the extra mile up down and all around.Myself being a simple man Andy explained some of his findings as we went along. The report I received the next morning was organized and the details with pictures were to the point with recommendations . Work ethic and professionalism were clearly shinning through
the whole process. Thank You Tom
- T.P., July 2017

- L.D., June 2017
As a first time home buyer I thought you very concerned and took your time to explain things to me and gave me your professional opinion on what immediate attention and what could wait.
- K.G., May 2017
The most knowledgable person I have ever dealt with in regards to homes and home inspections. I would never use anyone but him.
- M.T., October 2015
Very thorough inspection. Thanks Andrew!
- D.E., March 2015
Andrew is the utmost professional, thorough, detail oriented, honest, prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. He takes the time to explain things to my clients and is worth every penny. With multiple certifications, he is a one-stop shop adding a valuable convenience factor. One of the best professionals I've had the pleasure of working with and I would recommend him to everyone and anyone.
- S.H., October 2014
Great inspection, thanks for all the answers to the questions I had.
- P.D., August 2014
