We’ve used A-1 three times and will definitely use them again. They’re extremely thorough and helpful. Super nice guys who definitely know what they’re doing. I would recommend them for home inspections all day long.

Working with Dave was fantastic. He provided detailed reports about every nook and cranny in the house. He was willing to go above and beyond to make sure we understood everything in his reports. We used Dave for multiple reports in our home-buying process, and he actually saved us from buying a home we would not have wanted. On the reverse side, he helped us find all the issues with our current home so we knew what we were getting into with it. His years of experience give him an edge over many others. We can't recommend him enough!

Recently closed on a new construction that we had inspected by David Morris. David was incredibly friendly and professional. He was very thorough in his inspection and definitely found some important issues that the builder had overlooked. During our appointment with him he took the time to make sure we understood everything he did and how important some of the issues were. Overall, our experience with David and A1 Home Inspectors was the only part of our home buying experience that went smoothly. I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know looking for homes in this area!

We had a very good experience working with Dave for our house inspection and radon test. At the first email, he was responsive and professional, he explained how does it work and very flexible on the date you would pick. He went thourough all details and eventual issues in the house. We especially liked the way he has an eye for details. Results came very fast and well detailed. I truly recommend A-1 House Inspectors. They did an amazing work. Thanks a bunch Dave

Dave performed the inspection of the house that we are currently under contract. I have to say that i have never seen such a detailed report highlighting every single issue. It has really helped us to figure out the things we need to take care of in the house. He even had a very detailed and lengthy phone conversation with me going over the report.

I used A1 House Inspectors for my initial new construction purchase as well as for my 1 year builder's quality inspection. A1 made the process so easy and seamless. My walkthrough was so easy because A1 pointed out all of things that the builder was responsible for taking care of. I'd recommend them for any kind of home or business inspection.
