    I've hired numerous home inspectors in life and never have I known one who is more capable and committed to doing the work assigned as Josh McKay. He far exceeded my expectations and so easy and enjoyable to work with. He understands his trade more than any I have met before, and you can't beat his pricing.

    I was skeptical about hiring a home inspector. Josh blew away my expectations. He was as detailed as you could hope for an inspector to be. One thing I greatly appreciated was that he went out of his way to meet me at the home and walk me through everything, personally. I learned quite a bit about my home before it became my home! I will recommend Josh and his services to anyone.
