    Ben Clarke was outstanding in every respect and we recommend him without hesitation. He quickly let us know his availability and communicated well before, during, and after the inspection. He was prompt and exceedingly thorough. He took the time to educate us on various safety features and concerns, as well as how the various house systems operated. It was simply an enjoyable couple of hours going over every facet of our new house. Ben had an exhaustive report back to us within 24 hours and was willing to take calls to answer any additional questions we had. We couldn't be more satisfied.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        Pricing is determined by the type of inspection service requested. The inspection service could be a complete Energy Star rated home energy Audit, a home inspection including thermal-scan inspection, testing for Radon, lead based paint or mold. The size, age and location of the house also factors in determining the inspection fee. We provide free estimates over the phone so give Benjamin a call so we can talk about it.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        I set an appointment with my client to meet at the subject property for the inspection. I review the scope of the inspection with my client and encourage them to accompany me on the inspection. As I go through the inspection I will explain to my clients the different components of their home, and how they work together to provide comfort and safety in the home. I will go over maintenance schedules to keep the home running smoothly and avoid costly repairs. I will bring to the attention of the client any items that are broken, unsafe or not performing as intended. I supply a computer generated written report, including pictures and explanations to the client within 24 hours.
