John was everything we could ask for as an inspector. He was on-time for our appointment, endured both of our loud children and dog, and completed a robust inspection with valuable findings. He turned the report around overnight and compiled a builder's repair request for us to submit to our home construction company. We recommended him to our neighbor and she hired him immediately!

John was extremely professional and was meticulous in his inspection of my home. He spent a great deal of time examining every aspect of the home and uncovered issues that I, who has owed a home for over 20 years, would never have discovered. The cost of the inspection was more then made up with repairs completed by the seller that John discovered. I would highly recommend him for your inspection needs.

Also, our seller and his dog were home throughout the inspection and John was patient as they both looked over his shoulder throughout the process. I recommend John wholeheartedly.
