He spent hours on site doing a thorough inspection. At the end, he was courteous, professional, and full of candor. It was a great experience that only got better when we got the report. The depth of what he covered was exceptional. There was a report with categories listed in order that was easy to follow. There were pictures showing locations of items and followed up on the where he had conducted inspections. He also included embedded videos and thermal pictures to show heat sources were working properly. It was such a thorough report and we are very impressed and feel great moving forward to purchase a home based on his inspection. I would definitely recommend Porch Light and will gladly use them again!
I was so impressed, from start to finish, with our experience with Porch Light Home Inspection. So professional, a really great web-interface for the set up documents, payment for services, and the finished product (the home inspection, itself!). John was great to work with–super friendly and loaded with information and proactive solutions to the problems we found. He gave us some great vendors to talk to in Bend about repairs, and spent lots of time answering our questions and pointing stuff out. I would highly recommend using them in the future—Porch Light is the best of the best!!
