Eric has gone above and beyond for us. He was available last minute to inspect a home we wanted to purchase and took all of the precautions during the pandemic and was thorough and very professional. A few questions as a first time home buyer have come up and he is always more than happy to answer our questions. He has gone above and beyond and taken the time to research some solutions to issues that came up with our new home. I would highly recommend this company. Honest people (which is rare in todays society). I have learned so much. Thank you for your dedication and hard work.

Eric was very helpful in completing an inspection of a home I was purchasing. I can see why he came so highly recommended. He was thorough, going over in detail all of the different issues in the house and patiently discussing each one with me. The report acts as a guide for home maintenance, which for me is extra-valuable as a first-time home buyer. His knowledge of the various aspects of home construction is top-notch, and the information he provided went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you!!

I needed some house construction advice and googled to find this company. I am glad I used them! Eric was a wealth of information, and extremely personable and helpful to us as we plan our renovation. A real find.

I have nothing but great things to say about the job Eric did. At the recommendation of our real estate agent, we had Eric do a home inspection for us as part of a pre-purchase condition, and I was most happy. Thankfully, the home did not have many issues, but those that did arise Eric carefully documented and provided explanations for fixing - both verbally and in the report. He showed a careful attention to detail, and was very thorough.
A few examples of his very valuable service:
- Providing documented suggestions on ways to fix or maintain minor issues in a home. As a first-time home-buyer, I was quite nervous about figuring things out like: "How do I fix a small crack in the stucco siding?" "How important is it to clean out the basement window wells?" (very)
- Giving suggestions about what is necessary (e.x. sealing a large crack in a window sill) vs. not (e.x. gurgling sound in a drain that needs a new mechanical vent)
- Giving suggestions even outside of his scope as an inspector: our property is on the water and he gave us suggestions on types of decks, costs, etc.; ways to alter the basement to fit a home gym
I could go on further about it, but the bottom line is that Eric provided an extremely valuable service for me. I feel much more comfortable now as a first-time home buyer - both that the house I am purchasing is in good shape and also with routine home maintenance tasks. Thanks Eric.

Eric accompanied me on a PDI and his professionalism and knowledge was evident throughout. He provided clear and detailed explanations both during the inspection and after the fact. He consistently provided excellent insight and went beyond what I’d expected, including with his further follow-ups after the job. Just from speaking with him, it’s clear that he has a lot of pride and passion in his work.
