Jon and Jason were super thorough and helpful in explaining the details of their report! Great follow-up too!

Very throughout and detailed. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a home inspection.

We have bought and sold many houses, many from remote locations, and frankly have always been disappointed by the home inspectors abilities, scope and reports. However, our experience with The House Detectives who were recommended by our Realtor was different and they are by far the best we have experienced to date and we will definitely use them again. The scheduling and set up was easy and responsive. We were prepared to be disappointed again by the ability, scope and report but The House Detectives sent TWO inspectors to the house to work as a team. The scope of their inspection was more extensive and more analytical than previous companies and the written report was well structured and more comprehensive than others we’d seen and was well supported by photos and videos. Additionally House Detectives provide and quickly mobilize other services such as sewer inspection w/ video. The reason we do’t award 5 stars is that there were some items still missed – for example pocket doors that were jammed opened and not reported, strong smells of per urine and warped cupboard doors. That said we recommend The House Detectives and will definitely use them again ourselves.

Paul is the best! As a realtor, I know my clients will be in good hands when Paul is called upon to do the home inspection.

“I have been working with House Detectives and¬†recommending them to my clients for many years. I have been present for home inspections done by other inspectors and Jon and his crew perform the most thorough, detailed inspections, in my experience. Reports are available soon after inspection. Jon is always accessible and responsive to any questions that come up after the inspection. Excellent customer service….every time!”

“When we bought our home, we had an inspection done. House Detective was thorough, fast and gave us a complete report that we could have confidence in. Where we had concerns or questions, they took the time to explain. Great customer service!”

The report was extremely detailed and clear. Everyone who came out to assist in the inspection was very friendly and thorough. I was recommended to you from my boss and I will be sure to recommend to family and friends should the need arise. Everything you guys did made it easier for us to decide whether this home was for us or not. Thank you so much!!

I bought a new construction home from a very reputable builder with a really great warranty so, I thought a home inspection was just a formality at that point. But, John at the House Detectives actually found a ton of issues that even the city inspector had missed when looking at my home. His suggestions saved me countless thousands of dollars and actually brought my home into city compliance after the city inspector missed some not so obvious things. I’ll use House Detectives and have from now on.

We have used the House Detectives to inspect homes for several years now. They are always professional and kind. After 40 + times using them, we have never had any complaints.

I had the House Det. do a inspection of a house I was wanting to buy and found them aware and thoroughly attentive. Another thing I liked is when I contacted others to do inspections of the things they found that needed to be looked at, when I mentioned the House Det. sent me I received great service. Thanks!

Barbara was great and very knowledgeable. She is very detailed and easy to talk to. She answered all of our questions with perfect ease.

I had the House Detectives do an inspection of a house I wanted to buy. I found them very aware and thoroughly attentive to details! I also appreciated that when I called contractors to look at issues the House Detectives felt needed attention, and mentioned the House Detectives sent me, I received great service. Thanks!

Wow just wow. I had the House Detectives inspect the house I was going to buy through a referral from my real estate agent. The home inspection included a sewer scope and radon check. I’m a first time home buyer and couldn’t be at the inspection, but I had a family member attend for us. Wow, was their report thorough! They covered every single issue I was worried about and more. I had questions which they were happy to answer and contacted me with additional information. They were prompt, polite and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home inspection.

Jon and his colleague did a thorough job inspecting a 3600 SF home we are considering buying. The summary conversation after they finished (several hours beyond the window they quoted) was invaluable in getting a 360-degree view on the state of the home. They were factual and frank and very helpful in helping us decide which areas to focus on first. The 2-person team approach (interior/exterior) was efficient and thorough. Jon might share some good contractor stories with you as easily as he will tell you about the different trees growing in your yard. In my experience, House Detectives were thorough and went above and beyond to inspect the property top to bottom, inside and out.

Excellent home inspectors! This is the second time I have had a house inspected, and my Dad (very hard to please) recommended them because of the great work they did on his new home. They did a great job at explaining the issues and their report was very thorough. They wore booties when walking around inside and locked up every window and door after inspecting. I would highly recommend House Detectives!

I recently had a home inspection of a property I wanted to buy. I’ve had previous inspections of other properties by other inspectors, but the House Detectives were by far the most thorough I have seen! They were very attentive, took excellent photos and had plenty of good advice in the report.

After I received the initial report, more information came to light and they amended the report immediately. I was thrilled with every aspect of working with the House Detectives!
