Five Star Reviews

Rusty Layton actually made the inspection process enjoyable. He was extremely thorough but also took the time to explain/coach me on everything he was doing. Overall, Rusty's attention to detail and ability to explain things has made me a more confident home owner. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone requiring a home inspection.

Rusty inspected our newly constructed home right before we did the walk through with the builder. He was very professional, experienced and thorough! With the home being brand new, we questioned whether or not to have the inspection done but definitely made the right choice to hire Rusty! He put together a complete punch list, to include pictures, and found issues with erosion, siding (dings/damage), missing shingles on the roof/exposed nail heads, missing interior trim, as well as areas where paint needed to be corrected. He did a thorough inspection both inside and out. We highly recommend him to all!!!

We found Rusty online through reviews and couldn't be happier. He was patient and full of knowledge. Rusty was honest throughout the entire inspection and also spent time to write up a thorough review for us to keep! Thanks so much Rusty!

Rusty was great! He was very flexible in getting an inspection done, despite the rushed timeline. His prices were great, and he did a great job explaining certain aspects of the inspection to me.
