“Our inspector, Mark, was very thorough and personable. He was on time, explained where he was going to be during the inspection and went over the final report with us. A Better Home Inspection was great to work with and our inspection was scheduled quickly as we needed and requested. The report was emailed immediately after the inspection was complete. Great company to work with!

As a Realtor I always recommend this company! This time it was for my own personal property and the service and experience was exceptional as always. 10/10 Mark was the inspector today and is always an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks again for your thorough inspection.”

“The inspector named Mark Cawthorne came out and did a great job on the home inspection. The home inspection report is one of the best I've seen with a Full Report view and a Summary Report view (very easy to read). I paid extra for a drain camera report and Mark checked both the main drain and also the rain gutter drain to the street. I would highly recommend Mark and A Better Home Inspection By Forster’s team with all my home inspection needs. If I could give more than 5 Stars I would because they are that good.”

“Mark, the inspector that showed up, was professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I was provided the detailed report immediately for review after he spent some time going through everything. This is my 3rd home inspection but 1st with this company. I am very pleased with their quality, timeliness and pricing. Don’t waste time going anywhere else!”
