Feedback from Our Customers

“We are new home buyers and new to the process. Our inspector Josh walked us through the process and helped us understand what to expect. I was unable to make the appointment and my fiance had to arrive late. Josh was very understanding and made sure to walk my fiance through everything he found. We received a complete report in a binder right after the appointment that had all the information we needed. He also emailed us electronic copies. We were able to pay by credit card at the appointment and overall it was a easy process during a otherwise stressful time. Thanks!”

“Very thorough and informative inspector. Was also impressed at how accommodating they are to their clients providing bottled water, snacks, chairs, paint chips, window & room measuring equipment. This is going above and beyond what I expected from an inspection company. Well done!”

“Josh was incredibly thorough and helpful. He did an amazing job explaining everything about the house and the good and bad things about each thing. I felt confident in his analysis.”

“Josh was very thorough, more than I expected him to be. The appointment was made quickly and he took his time to cover all aspects of the house being inspected. The report issued was complete and easily understood on the improvements required on the house in order to negoiate the purchase. Everything was well documented by pictures that presented proof of the inspection. A well done job.”

“Your work is very efficient and take your work serious. You take the time to explain what you are going to do why and the results. The notebook of all the results is really a huge plus . I think this was well spent money it gives me peace of mind.”

“We are moving from outside of the area and are very unfamiliar with available services. We called based on a realtor recommendation and could not have been happier. Our inspection was done very quickly after we requested it. The inspector was thorough and careful as he completed his duties and we walked away with a color photo, printed report in hand.”

“Everyone was very friendly, courteous, and professional – from the initial call to find out pricing and more information, to the quick e-mail responses to questions I had about the upcoming inspection, and the inspection itself – complete, thorough and very informative. Josh answered all of my questions as we looked over the house. He was very professional and conscientious in the way he handled the owners property – taking care to make sure nothing got scuffed, scratched, or damaged in any way as he moved things around in order to inspect components of the house. The printing of the report on the spot and the infra-red imaging (to check the electrical components and inspect for water leaks that my not have been visible) were two main options provided by Pillar To Post that convinced me to go with them. The entire process was very comfortable and I will feel confident moving into our new house.”
