Ken:  Received your report. It looks great!!  Thanks for your timely and thorough inspection.  As a former realtor who has used 'home inspectors' on a regular basis for over 10 years, your inspection and service was super.  I will report to you after our
contractor review and let you know how it went.  Sincerely,  Bill and Sharon Clark
Hi Ken,
You were right about the mold in the bathroom. There was a significant leak under the tub and there was mold in both adjoining rooms, in the closet and floors and walls. They sent a mold removal team to clean it up. They removed the drywall and are taking the mold off of the wood inside the walls. They said they will treat the carpets and cut the carpet pad away that had the mold. Is it reasonable to ask for new carpets? Thanks! Jennifer. Can you imagine if we hadn't hired you and this was missed?
Hi Ken
 I just wanted to share with you that Scott, the Superindendent
was very impressed with your report and said that it was very
comprehensive and that you did a great job. He said of all the
home inspectors in the valley, you are the only one that has
provided such a comprehensive report.
Thanks again!  Michele Martin
Thanks again Ken, your professional approach and vast knowledge coupled with an extreme customer service attitude made today's inspection very positive. Much appreciated. I will be sharing this experience with my Canadian friends living in the valley. Please share my contact information with clients considering your service I'd be pleased to pass along my positive experience.   Doug

Wow, Ken and Becky, You have done an AWESOME job of putting my report together. To be honest, a few of my co-workers and friends kept telling me, Hiring a 3rd party inspector would be a waste of money but I have to tell you, they were dead wrong. There is no way I would have found some of these issues without your expert and professional assistance. I will definitely do what ever I can to tell my friends and family about you and the high quality of work and service you provided for me and my family. Please feel free to use me as a good reference but please only provide my cell phone number. Thanks again for everything, The Regis family

God bless you and your wife and may He allow your business to continue to prosper.Take care,  Wendell and Marnia Charles

 Thank you!!!  Hi Ken, I just wanted to say thank you for the thorough home inspection that you gave my home in late Jan 09.  You found many items that I wouldnt have known to look for and one of the items that you found even educated my customer service rep. (ie dishwasher loop placement). I will definately recommend you to anyone who is looking for a home inspection and will be contacting you for any future inspections that I need.       Thanks again and best wishes,    Jim Pruter

Hi Ken,
Thanks again for doing the inspection of our new house yesterday. You are by far the most thorough inspector we've ever hired. Dean T., the customer service rep who did the walkthrough, even commented that you did a good job with the report. Also, our realtor, Michele C. of Homesmart, asked for your name because she wanted to add you to her list of recommended inspectors.
Paul Bundy
Hello Ken,
I just wanted to thank you again for doing the warranty inspection on our home. The things that were found were things that we never would have known to look for, so without your expertise in this area we would have been surprised with all the work that would have needed to be done when the time came to sell the home. As a new home buyer we naturally assumed that we would not need work on the home this soon after closing but were unfortunately proven wrong. I appreciate how flexible you were with the time and how you went through everything so thoroughly. We will definately be referring you to family and friends and highly recommend the work that you have done. Thank you as well for the detailed report and for explaining everything to us so we could understand it.    Seth and Emily Higgins
You have to try Ken with Home Inspection Protection.
Ken has inspected two homes for us and we have referred him to several others who have also been very pleased with his work. He is very knowledgable and professional.
