Project: Inspect a Home
Comments: Ed came out and did all he was expected to do. He was also very kind during all phone conversations. He was on time and did not rush through the inspection. We found his inspection and advice to be spot on!

"I highly recommend Top Notch Home Inspector. Ed called me promptly and we set up a date and time. He was right on top and got to work in VERY HOT conditions. He was very thorough and made sure that he made me aware of "issues", as soon as he found them. He then explained how to remedy the problem. Then, a couple of days after the inspection, I recv'd a really nice bound report detailing EVERYTHING, as well as pictures showing the problem areas. This was money well spent, and no, we're not moving, just wanting to know how our 27-year-old house is faring."

"Ed is very professional and friendly, He takes his time to explain everything that the house needs to repair. I was very surprises when I saw the home inspection report, it had 73 pages, .. I am really happy with his service, if I have to do another home inspection I will hired top notch again, he is the best,,, "  


Ed was available on short notice and communicated well with me via email and telephone. He showed up on time and was finished in two hours. His price was fair, and he accepted credit card payment via his smartphone. Ed performed a thorough inspection and personally showed me all the condo deficiencies. He wrote a detailed report, and the report was available later that same day via  the internet.

Review Lauren S.

We recently had Top Notch inspect a home we are trying to buy and it was great. Our inspector was VERY through!!!  He took his time and looked at every nook and cranny of the house.  While he was doing our inspection, he spoke to us and explained things very clearly and went through it in more depth if we had any questions. He alerted us to issues that were present and possible outcomes if they weren't fixed. He gave us a link to view our inspection on-line (we got it less than 24 hours after the inspection) and he sent us a hard copy in the mail. There were many color pictures of the existing problems and accompanying illustrations to explain a problem or what we would need to use to fix it.  He was very personable and we would highly recommend him to anyone who needed an inspector.  Thank you Top Notch!!
