Thank you for conducting the inspection today. I appreciated the thoroughness of your report and your effort to explain suggestions and findings, both in person and in writing. I just finished reading your report and do not have any questions at this time.
Thank you again!
First off, I enjoy your newsletters! Second off, I recommend you to anyone I know needing a home inspection! The broken dishwasher, water heater, high radon levels, and roof issues you discovered in my house got replaced even before I moved in! Wonderful!
Thanks for another informative house inspection session. Kyle and I very much appreciate you working with us and we look forward to receiving your report. Oh, and Jeff mentioned that you send out emails with tips on maintaining your house. We’d love to be on your email list.
“Thanks Mike. This is a nicely done and informative newsletter. I really appreciate the two inspections you have made for us. The first one exposed an otherwise hidden flaw that greatly influenced the value of the house. Your inspection kept us from making a mistake. Your inspection last week also exposed an uninsurable flaw with multiple roofing layers. Once again, left uncovered we could have made a big mistake. Fortunately we were able to get the roof covered by the existing owner and we will be proceeding with the purchase. We could not be any happier with the services you have provided. I would be happy to be a reference for you anytime. Have a great day and thanks!

“Yes, we would definitely recommend Mike Blackman with Five Star Home Inspections. He did our pre-inspection for the house we were selling, and we were so impressed with his thoroughness that we had him do the inspection on the new house also! He was very patient and answered all our questions and made sure we had a detailed report very quickly so we could easily make a decision. And I love that he summarizes the report too- into attention needed items and action necessary items, making it easy to determine the areas where we needed to focus first! – Amy”

Thank you for your service. It was a pleasure meeting you and talking with you. You were right about the Asbestos. We had a sample of the material tested and it was 75% asbestos content. We have submitted the information from your report as well as the asbestos results to the sellers.
