Sam was extremely helpful during my clients home inspection. For any first time buyers not knowing the conditions of the house, an inspection can be overwhelming. Sam was detailed and very clear when explaining the report!

“Being a first time home buyer, I had a very good experience with Sam. He did a thorough job and went over a very detailed explanation about his findings. He broke everything down so that it was understandable for the layperson and even offered suggestions/tips for dealing with some of the maintenance needed on the property. I feel very fortunate to have had him as our inspector.”

“The inspector Sam was very thorough and professional. He was friendly, answered all of my questions and provided a very thorough inspection report very quickly. I definitely would recommend his company for your inspection needs.”

Jeremy Markovich
“Sam showed up a little early and started off explaining the process. He answered all of my questions throughout and was very professional. He was very detail oriented and knowledgeable about all elements of the building. On a side note he had really good quality equipment/tools and was very organized which just expressed he meant business. The report was presented on a tablet with high quality photos and sent via email right after the inspection. This was the type of experience that provides the confidence you want when buying a home.”
