Recent Review: Mr. Ferguson completed a home inspection for me during the home buying process. He was extremely thorough and found many problems (ex. electric, plumbing leaks, moisture in the walls, roofing concerns, etc.) with a seemingly updated property. His findings gave us insight as to the potentially costly repairs that would need to be completed on the home and the deal fell through as parties could not come to an agreement. We again retained Mr. Ferguson on a second property for the same purpose, and again he was exceptional in the services he provided and his findings that could have cost us a lot of money in the future.

Recent Review: Great!...I had to get my home inspected quickly as our closing date was fast approaching. I called Raymond with short notice and he did his best to accommodate my schedule by coming out on a Saturday morning to inspect my new home. Although I was not present for the whole inspection, Raymond walked my wife and myself through house noting the major problems that needed to be addressed by our builder. We were impressed by his methodical inspection that was thorough yet still relevant. This also impressed the builder who said that many other inspectors fail to focus on these issues. Some do not even get on the roof to inspect it. Raymond did of course and caught several shingles with holes and some gutter problems. He was respectful of our home, taking off his shoes when necessary. He was very professional, polite and patiently explained what he would put in the report. The report was very informative with clear pictures and arrows marking where the major problems. All in all, this made our walkthrough with our builder much easier and I am glad I made the decision to call RKR Home inspections. I highly recommend him for your next inspection.
Recent Review: We are about to complete our custom home and we needed to have a final Home Inspection performed and Vital Inspections were recommended to us. They did not disappoint! The first thing I'd like to say is what a gentleman Sam is, highly professional and a pleasure to work with. He and his team is incredibly thorough and they spent about 6 hours going over absolutely everything imaginable. They meticulously documented everything with photos, they used state-of-the-art infra-red technology to check for missing insulation and dampness and they even measured the temperature accuracy of our ovens and refrigeration units. I was personally present the entire time and they drilled down on every single detail and provided very practical advice along the way. I consider myself to be detail oriented - but these guys are on another level. They produced a very detailed report within a day or so, and have made themselves available for some follow up issues we are currently going through with our builder. I consider them trusted advisors and would recommend them 100% and without any reservations. If your house is hiding any issues, these guys are going to find them. If your builders are taking shortcuts, these guys are going to call it.
Two inspectors (1 for structure, 1 for electric/plumbing etc.) came, and they were on time, courteous, and professional. However, compared with other home inspections we have been involved with, they did an average job. They did not examine the crawl space because of "concerns with damaging the stucco if they removed the door to the crawl space." I honestly don't think they tried hard enough to get in. In the end, the people from the pest control company got into the crawl space and discovered water stain which needed some attention. Because this is such a new home, there are generally few problems and we probably would do well with an average home inspection. However, if I were to do it again, I would definitely use Mr. Gerald Duhon (I later found his name from Angie's list to help address the water stains, and he is great!)

AHome Inspections Plus
The experience was as good as I have ever had, I have a particular inspector I use in another state and I judge others by him and I have to say Troy at Home Inspections Plus met all the criteria that I was expecting. Let me say the name of the company has meaning the PLUS in Home Inspections Plus brings with it very detailed explanation of what is happening all along the way with the inspection what they are doing, what they are looking at and why, what could be wrong, what cold go wrong in the future, what things I should consider being new to the area. Troy provided me with a very nice book "How to Operate Your Home" it is an excellent resource along with that they have provided other options for us to continue to find ways to maintain our home in the future. That is the PLUS I am referring to, his inspection was very thorough and I could continue to go on and on but let me just stop and leave you the reader of this with these final words. If I were to need someone to provide a Home Inspection I would call Home Inspections Plus every time I guarantee you will not be disappointed at all..

I called him on the weekend and he gave me his availability. I scheduled him on a Friday and he showed up early and did a thorough job. He took pictures of the problem areas in the attic, crawl space, roof and provided them on a CD. He also wrote up his assessment of each part of the property. Verbally he gave me estimated repair costs and provided different possibilities based on my situation. George was very knowledgeable and pointed out things about the house that would add expense to repairs, also how to reduce expenses in the future through adding access, moving the house during foundation repair, etc.

Needed to encapsulate a crawl space on a new home. The owner was very knowledgeable about building science and prescribed a solution that was exactly what I needed. I cross referenced his proposal with several leading authorities online, and he was spot on. The operations staff were also excellent and did great work.

AThe Basement Kings
The Basement Kings finished their LARGE job this morning, and I can’t praise them enough! They had a long, difficult job, but no complaints. When they discovered a problem, they fixed it. No problem, that’s their job. They found the water problem had a lot to do with drainage, so they worked outside in cold & rain & developed a system to carry water away from the house. That, to me, was over & above, but they said their main objective was to get & keep the basement dry, so they did what they had to do with no complaints. Now you can’t ask for better than that - they give their all! I am totally amazed!!

You absolutely get your money's worth with Fox. The report was built in real-time using their surface tablets and cameras, and I was able to review every single photo of my crawl space with Gordon immediately after he came out. Best yet, they were able to get the report to me that night. Alex stayed up till nearly midnight, and was available by text the entire time. Not sure there's any other company or inspector out there who can provide that good of service. Several days later I had a quick follow up question and got a response within 2 minutes of my text back to Alex.

AGold Medal Inspections
We had Travis from Gold Medal Inspections do a home and pool inspection during the option period of a home purchase. Travis was prompt and professional. He took the time to show me different things that I was interested in during the inspection process. He used a drone to provide area view of the roof and chimney areas. He provided a comprehensive report shortly after the inspection was completed. Clear color photos and call out arrows were included, in the reports as were recommendations for some items that could help fix some of the minor issues that were identified.

ACornerstone Home Inspections
Al, the owner and inspector did an outstanding job. His attention to very detail was exactly what we wanted and he performed far above our expectations. He is certified in every area of home inspection and his background, experience and expertise is why my husband and I selected him to perform the inspection on our future home. I would rate his service with 5 stars and highly recommend him.
