Guy was very professional and thorough. We would recommend him highly if you need a Home Inspection. He called to ask if he could get started earlier than our schedule appointment which worked out perfectly for us. He took the time to explain certain conditions that we have to address and gave us several helpful suggestions. I can't say how lucky we feel for choosing him from Angie's list...he got...

Mr. Brand worked with my family while we were away to perform a thorough inspection of a home we were looking to purchase.  He gave us a report very quickly.  It covered the major items that were wrong with the home such as a new vapor barrier needed to be installed, potential mice problem under the house (feces found in insulation), rot in some of the wood.  Some very minor items were missed, but...

I hired Mr. Brand for a pre-purchase inspection on a foreclosed home. I arrived at the home 30 minutes prior to our scheduled inspection time and Mr. Brand was already there and complete with the crawl space inspection. Once we went inside the home he began to conduct a mold inspection with special equipment and while it was running and collecting samples he went around the home and conducted his ...

He began his inspection 15 minutes before the appointed time.  He was very thorough and extremely professional.  He explained some things that he found with the builder and asked some questions to make sure that they were aware of problems that he found.  He went as far as to use a mirror to inspect every inch of the home.  I am so grateful that I found this company. As unusal as it maybe, I have ...

We arrived at our new home 20 minutes early to find Mr. Guy Brand already there.  Mr. Brand had already looked over the roof and outdoor areas.  We were greeted with a smile and lots of hand shakes.  He even chit chatted with our six year old son while we were waiting on our realtor to arrive.  He was very thorough while he looked over the entire house.  We had a very small attic space but that di...
