Porch Light’s entire crew is fantastic. The people who answer the phone and make appointments are nice and easy to work with. All the inspectors are thorough and professional. The inspection reports themselves are easy to read and explain any issues clearly.

Outstanding inspector! John did a very thorough and detailed inspection. He explained as he went along and answered all our questions. He was very professional with a great since of humor. I have a real estate background and have worked with many inspectors over the years. He is by far, the BEST! I would not use anyone else. Competitive pricing, detailed and accurate report, quick turn around.

We had our brand new home inspected in 2017 by Porch Light and just sold our home in 2021. The inspector that the buyer used found several things that Porch Light missed, including a live wire right inside the crawl space (just hanging) and an entire row of shingles that were not stapled down and more ... Very dissatisfied as the live wire could have started a fire very easily. However, it was very easy to schedule and they were on time.

John's inspection was thorough and enlightening. We were buying a 100 year old home, so the details of the inspection were very important in understanding what we were getting into. His report came within 24 hours, with a lot of very good photos, and provided the information we needed to go through with the purchase.

Porch Light was able to inspect the home at short notice and Zack was very thorough and provided a prompt report. I had some questions about the report and John was able to speak with me on a Sunday to discuss the report in detail which I was really appreciated. Overall a great experience.

Zack was extremely thorough and professional. As the buyer we were able to talk with him afterward and ask questions and have him show us things. It was very helpful to make us feel confident about our purchase. We received our digital report very quickly and it was super easy to navigate.
