Thank you for the review Troy, Enjoy your new home!
Glenn fit me in on short notice. He was already at the inspection site when I arrived. He was very thorough and pointed out several things which I would not have spotted when inspected my potential new home. He seems to know what he is doing and what he is looking for. I think he is a good choice.Feb 25, 2019Glenn Helder Home Inspection Service's reply
Thank you for taking time to write a review Steven, Happy to be of service!
We found Glen through Yelp. We are first time home buyers. He made us so comfortable the minute we spoke with him. He set up a schedule on a very short notice. Glen walked us through the whole process. He is extremely thorough and was very patient with us since we had so many questions. He followed up with us two days after the inspection. Super nice guy! We will certainly use him in the future and we would highly recommend him to everyone who is looking for an honest home inspector.Nov 12, 2018Review from GoogleGlenn Helder Home Inspection Service's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Variable due to type of Structure Detached/Attached, Square Footage, Number of Families, Ect. Although my prices are very competitive and reasonable I include the Termite Inspection Report form NPMA-33 for my Clients.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After I'm hired by the client I generally meet them at the house to be inspected. I usually begin the inspection on the outside components first then move inside to the basement and work my way up until all components of the house are inspected. The client can usually figure the average time on site to be 21/2 hours plus or minus depending upon issues. After the on site inspection I finish the report on my own at my office where I merge the pictures and add the narratives to the report, approximately 2 hours. I then forward the report to the client by E-Mail in a PDF format for their review and they can call me with any questions they may have.
