“…they are the only choice.”
“Heath and Becky are the BEST. If you want a complete, thorough and professional home inspection they are the only choice. I have worked with very experienced Real Estate agents and they always remind me that Welcome Home is one of the best in the industry!!!” -L.C.
“…a very positive experience!”
“Becky and Heath did a fantastic job with my home inspection! They were extremely thorough and took the time to walk me through the house and explain areas of concern. In addition, their rates were quite reasonable and I received my detailed, easy to understand inspection report by the end of the day. I also appreciated their willingness to answer follow up questions and provide me with references for additional testing/work. I would highly recommend using them for a home inspection. Buying a home is a very stressful process and Becky and Heath helped to make my inspection a very positive experience!” -A.S.
“…quality and trustworthy work!
“Becky and Heath are an amazing team who do great, quality and trustworthy work! This was my first time buying a house (previously only owned condo) and they walked through the entire place pointing out their concerns. They answered my (many many) questions and did not move on to the next item until they felt I thoroughly understood. I would highly recommend using them if you're in the market for a home inspection. Great people too!” -A.C.
“Courteous, kind, understanding, and showed that they really cared about me and my situation.”
“I was looking for a home inspector at the very last minute to write a report on an issue I am having with my landlord and it was time sensitive. Becky and Heath were here the next day. They were both courteous, kind, understanding, and showed that they really cared about me and my situation. How refreshing when you've been dismissed for months about your concerns! They explained everything to me thoroughly and it was very clear during the inspection that they knew their stuff and love what they do. I honestly can not recommend Heath and Becky enough!” -K.L.
“…google doesn’t allot me enough space to relay how positive my experience was with Heath and Becky.”
“I have to start by saying that google doesn’t allot me enough space to relay how positive my experience was with Heath and Becky. I was recommended by my realtor to use their services and was not let down. They are prompt, thorough, knowledgeable, and just down right kind people. They make themselves available for any and all of your needs at a very affordable cost. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Thanks guys!!!” -T.M.
“…most calming and even-handed manner.”
“We used Welcome Home for our home inspection and radon test when we purchased our first house. I cannot overstate the level of rigor and thoroughness - they caught little cracks and points of potential repair that were barely visible. At the same time, they presented all the information, as we went through the house, in the most calming and even-handed manner. They were clear about what was a "red flag," what was a safety issue, and what was less than ideal but typical of local construction. A substantial part of the feedback included what we should monitor in the future, and what issues were manageable with proper maintenance.” -C.O.
