    Dragon Ridge Home Inspections
    The inspector was great, he was so thorough- it was so amazing the detail he went into was fantastic! I would not hesitate to use your company or the same guy again. He was very knowledgeable, any questions that I had he answered. He had impeccable timing, we said 9am and he was there on the dot. level of depth in the report and the amount of time spent on the home was justified in my opinion

    Quite well. Greg Kemp, a registered professional engineer, conducted the inspection. Was extremely thorough and patiently answered, in depth, and in layman's terms, numerous questions from the new owner of the structure.

    I'm a first-time homebuyer, so the whole process is a little intimidating. I knew a home inspection was the first thing done in the process, so I simply went on Yelp and typed in "home inspection". You've probably done the same thing if you're reading this review. I went with the company that had the most 5-star reviews, and Excel Inspections definitely met my expectations. Sabastian was my inspector. I'm not too keen on what an inspector does, or what tools they use, testing methods, etc., but what I do know is that he was in and out in 2 hours (a standard inspection). He started in the garage and monitored everything. He explained to you everything he was looking at and offered his sincere recommendation on whether or not it was "minor" or "major" concern. He made the experience enjoyable, but I also think that was us just being lucky and having a newer home with few issues. I would definitely recommend Excel Inspections. They have a pretty standard pricing model, but the report they generate and the thoroughness of their processes are great.

    Tony was there before I got there, and already working! He was extremely thorough, and explained everything to me so that even a complete novice like myself was able to understand. His knowledge and experience is evident. Ours was a big project, but his detail to his work never wavered or lessened the entire time. He took the time after the long day to go through all his pictures and explain what he had covered that day. I highly, highly recommend Tony. You will not be disappointed in the least!

    Fred was an excellent Home Inspector. He went thru every little detail of the inspection process with us and even gave us solutions and advice. We are definitely happy with his service and if we ever had to give a recommendation for a home inspector in the future, he would be the one.

    Excellent
    Scott was God sent for my inspection.
    I had seen structural integrity report of the house which was was given to me by the seller. Scott's home inspection report uncovered structural issues which a structural integrity report wasn't able to reveal. He spotted a crack in cedar closet room which saved me thousands in future expenses.
    He was professional, punctual and very meticulous during his visit. He came in early and went through outside and inside covering every inch of detail. The best part is that he prepares the complete report and sends it off to your email with pictures right there and then from the home inspection site. There is a huge value there because the entire visit details are fresh and you get an opportunity to ask him all the questions.
    Thank you Scott - wish you the very best. Will be in touch again for another home inspection soon.

    ATLAS Home Inspection
    Amazingly well.  Ed Snope did a comprehensive home inspection on a single family house that my wife and I intended to purchase.  We knew ahead of time that the house was being flipped, that the current owner had only owned the home for about 3 months and was doing considerable work on the house.  We knew there would be issues with the house, including grading and water drainage issues and some HVAC issues.  However, Ed found numerous other issues, some that the seller's home inspector missed.  The seller of the house provided his inspection report that was completed just three months prior and Ed's report was substantially more detailed, comprehensive, better written and caught many more issues.  Ed was professional:  He answered all of my numerous questions; He was extremely patient; He took the time to explain things to me (I was present for the inspection); He gave advice too such as what type of caulking to use, what type of weather-stripping, paint, etc... while we went through the house.  He invited me up on the roof with him (I declined) and up in the attic (I accepted, and I'm glad I did) where he showed me improper and inadequate insulation, pointed out potential issues with HVAC registers and recessed lighting that wasn't IC approved.  He showed me how some of the wiring on the newly installed electrical panel was incorrect.  I have a very basic knowledge of electrical issues, and Ed explained them to me at a level where I could appreciate and understand how the panel was done incorrectly in areas.  Ed found many issues with the HVAC system--it had rust on the ducts, improper sealant through the floors, etc.  How newly added returns and ducts in the basement may have improperly balanced the system.  There was barely any airflow coming out of the registers on the upper floors.  He found numerous grading issues outside of the house, along with potential water infiltration points where the bricks were missing mortar, where the lintel above the windows was improperly caulked.  How the downspout extensions were improperly graded away from the house.  How the HVAC system used older refrigerant.  Also, Ed tested every single electrical outlet in the house.  Many were bad, painted over, etc.  He found mold in the washing machine and in a few basement closets.  The previous inspection didn't find any mold.  The house had its previous bathrooms and kitchens gutted and new cabinets, tile, and counter-tops installed.  Ed found cabinets and drawers installed poorly (out of level or plump), incorrect exhaust vents, no caulking, and a shower head and diverter installed incorrectly.  All things I would have assumed were done correctly, because they were newly installed.  All in all, Ed found many, many issues with this house that I never expected, didn't see through my multiple previous visits, and the previous inspection missed.
    Ed spend well over four hours at the house conducting the inspection.  He arrived early, too.  What's even more impressive is that he emailed to me a comprehensive, well-written, detailed report the very next day, less than 24 hours after finishing the walk-through.  The report was 50 pages.  It had multiple pictures with red arrows highlighting issues.  It was easy to read, well-organized and broken down into several categories: Major concerns (in red), minor concerns (in blue), FYI (information), OK (in lighter blue) and safety hazards (in yellow). 
    Ultimately, because of Ed's amazing inspection and thorough report, my wife and I decided not to buy the house.  Although we were disappointed because the house was in a great location, near great schools and came with a membership to the pool just a few minutes away, we knew that it was the right decision. 
    I will definitely hire Ed again when we find another house.  He was top notch.  A+.
    Oh, and one other thing.  At the end of the inspection, I inquired about a radon test, and paid Ed to come back to do the test; however, once I got home, I told Ed to hold off on the radon test, and ultimately cancelled it once we declined on the house.  Ed, without asking, sent me a check back, within days, for the portion covering the radon test.  That's called professionalism. 
    Thanks again, Ed, for giving me the guidance to make an informed decision.

    Gatekeeper Inspections
    He discovered a leaky basement that had not been properly mitigated.  He would not be rushed, despite the hovering of the the worried listing agent, selling agent, and owner.  I would definitely use him again.  He saved me from a nightmare purchase.

    RPM Home Inspect
    Bobby Mayberry was recommended by my buyer's agent (realtor). He performed two inspections for me. In September, I had an as-is contract on a condo that had cosmetic issues but appeared to be in good shape otherwise. Bobby's thorough inspection revealed plumbing, electrical, and other problems. He saved me from making a costly mistake. In November, when I found another unit at the same location, I did not hesitate to request Bobby's services once again. His inspection report was detailed and the sellers did not object to fixing the minor problems that turned up.

    Gatekeeper Inspections
    We asked Brian to complete another inspection of our house under construction. Brian was easy to schedule, showed up on time and did another thorough inspection where he found several significant issues. Again, these issues were only addressed by the builder after he received Brian's report.
