Due to poor remodeling planning a mold insp was not scheduled after remediation. Explained problem to Wayne and he worked me into schedule by extending his hours to fit me in. Rains also complicated the insp. His insp was professionally accomplished and report forwarded as soon as he received the test results. I highly recommend his company to anyone wanting a thorough and professional insp done to their property. Mr. J. Wood
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Mr. Wayne Cole is amazing! He completed a thorough inspection of a condo we plan to buy at a great rate! I called to get his thoughts on what I should ask the seller to fix, and he suggested everything. He reminded me that is what I paid him to do, to make recommendations on what needed to be fixed....and he did just that! The seller agreed to all requested items to fix. On a side note, it was nice when Mr. Wayne recognized my accent and that we were from the same state. I look forward to using his company again! Jennifer Jackson
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I was able to get a home inspection on short notice. Extremely professional and informative. As the potential buyer, Cole inspection encouraged me to join and what a wealth of information they gave me. Answered my question and even provided some helpful tips. Thank you very much. Highly recommend. Mark Smith
Wayne Cole performed a very thorough and timely inspection of my planned new home in Navarre. He went to a great deal of detail to ensure that every aspect of the property was in excellent working order . He identified several areas of concern that I probably would have overlooked; but the seller is now aware of these items, and can easily correct them prior to closing. Wayne dealt with me in a very professional manner; and his report was the highest quality document that I have seen in my many years of buying and selling real estate. Thanks again for an outstanding job. Mr. John Bunyan
