I’ve used the services of Bay Home Inspections twice now, and each time I’ve received five star service and beyond! I am absolutely amazed by the attention to detail and level of dedication from both Michael and Jennifer Lynn! They spot things that I would never have even thought to check for, and provide honest guidance and feedback around the issues they encounter. Bay Home Inspections is thorou...

Excellent job done. We were on a very tight time schedule to have our house inspected. Bay Home Inspections made the time for our house inspection. We actually had a detailed written, along with pictures, report emailed to us that night. Can not say enough good things about them. Highly recommend them.

I am so happy that I went with Bay Home Inspections! From the beginning, Mike answered every call and email. I was able to schedule my buyer's inspection within days of initially contacting Mike. He showed up day of and conducted a very thorough inspection of the home. Once he was done, he walked me through his findings and showed me how to turn on and off some of the main valves/switches.

FANTASTIC! We found Bay Home Inspections through Angie's List as we do for most contractors and service providers. The firm had a high number of "A" ratings on Angie's List and will have another "A" rating there from me when I finish this review! Mr. Bender, the principal owner of Bay Home Inspections, called me immediately after my inquiry and explained the service to be provided and the fee. In ...

Thank you so much for posting this review on our behalf.

Michael and Jennifer were extraordinarily detailed in their inspection and very helpful in walking us through the home, explaining the findings, and offering suggestions on how to address and prioritize issues. We had a short inspection period and they were able to produce our complete report extremely quickly, allowing us to address the important issues with the sellers and go into this purchase ...

As a previous homeowner but first-time prospective buyer of a manufactured home, I am so glad I waited a week for Michael Bender with Bay Homes Inspections to become available to do our inspection. I was nervous about purchasing a manufactured home, and wanted to be sure I chose an inspector who knew what he was doing. Michael was so worth the wait!! He arrived to the house early and then spent ov...

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this very detailed account of our performance. It is unfortunate that, as a result of our reputation, immediate scheduling can be difficult or impossible. Although much of my construction and contracting background centers around historical buildings and restoration work, we have also performed major repairs on many manufacture...

Mike and his wife were on time. They did a very thorough and professional inspection of the house I’m in the process of purchasing. Issues that were found as the inspection was being done or pointed out to me and explain in layman‘s terms the situation. The day after the inspection I received an email link to the report. It was complete with pictures and set up so if was easy to prioritize the iss...

Thank you for reviewing our services. We are deeply grateful for every review. This assignment entailed evaluation of a significant residential structure, exceeding 5000 sq. ft. under roof. These types of projects require a higher level of experience and education than what would typically be necessary for a modestly sized house.
