Client Testimonials

“This review is long overdue! I recently bought my first home and consulted many inspection companies prior to finding Guiding Light Home Inspection. By far, Mike was the most professional and helpful (as I had many, many questions). Mike had no issue going over in detail with me what all my home inspection would include, he promptly provided any documentation and license numbers I asked for. He was very thorough while inspecting my home and made sure he talked me through any issue that should be addressed immediately. I was very impressed with the level of detail he paid the home as well. Mike even followed up with me a month or so after I moved in to see if I had any questions or concerns. If this says anything, I even called Him for his opinion when negotiating repairs with the sellers, that’s how much I trusted him! 10/10 Definitely would recommend this company for any home inspection needs!”

“Guiding Light Home Inspections did an AMAZING job on our new construction inspection. Not only does he know his stuff, but he found deficiencies and checked many things that we did not even think to look at or ask about! He was early to our appointment and took his time to go through our home with a fine-tooth comb! He didn’t even mind that I followed him around while he did the inspection. We received a full detailed report with explanations and pictures. Honest and trustworthy. Worth every single penny spent!”
