Outstanding diligence and professional debrief! Thorough examination, friendly, and courteous.
I love the fact that their website was so easy to maneuver, I was able to skim through the information about different inspections, get a quote and setup an appointment all on their website by myself.Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, giving me confidence in this stage of my home buying process. One the day of inspection the inspector was on time (actually a little early), finished in the allotted time and made me feel as if no question was a dumb question. At the end of the inspection the inspector thoroughly went over his findings with me and sent myself and my realtor copies of the results In a timely manner.I would definitely recommend waypoint and look forward to keeping business with them as well.
