Michael is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He was very thorough in his inspection and also took the time to explain things to my wife and I during the inspection process. He explained to us what the issue was, why it’s a potential safety concern, and available remedies to address the issue. I highly recommend him for home inspection services.

Working with Mick was a lifesaver. When purchasing our first home we had little to no knowledge of potential issues with a property to be on the lookout for. Mick’s thorough work put our minds at ease because his expert knowledge of common, uncommon, code-related, and often overlooked issues gave us a comprehensive view of the property. Mick’s meticulous photo documentation, personalized recommendations, and detailed advice provided the confidence we needed to negotiate the purchase of our first home. Most importantly, at closing, Mick’s report helped save us money on pre-sale repairs negotiation and saved us the headache of addressing these issues alone and years down the road.

We appreciated the professional nature of Mic's inspection. He was not rushed and spent time to explain his findings and address our concerns. The thoroughness of Mic's inspection resulted in unfortunate findings, which led to our decision to terminate the contract to buy. We are thankful for Mic's diligence which helped us to avoid what could have become a costly mistake.
- S.D., August 2021
Mic was a excellent resource and pure professional. He took the time to walk me thru every question and even helped me to ask questions I should be asking but was not. His suggestions made me very comfortable with my new home and his observations saved me alot of headache when dealing with the seller. Do yourself a favor...use Michael Meyer.

I found out about this company when a buyer used them to inspect my home. As the homeowner, I was kind of shocked by the number of things found--but they were so thorough, I knew that I'd be calling them when I was ready to purchase a home. When I called them to inspect a home I wanted to purchase, the inspector Mick was great. He was personable, and let me walk around with him while he explained anything I wanted to know. Mick has a great attention to detail, which I appreciate. He found a lot of great things, and his findings ultimately helped lead me to discovering some vital history surrounding the house. I cannot more highly recommend Michael Allan & Associates.
