We absolutely love 1st Rate Inspections and their amazing team. They continuously provide top notch service to our clients during the inspection process. Not only are they thorough but they also go over everything in detail with the clients on site and or over the phone (whichever is convenient for the client). Their extended warranty is also a nice touch to ensure the new home owners that they will be taken care of and our new construction clients love their 3-step inspections when building their homes. I would 100% recommend them to anyone needing an inspection!

Rodney Field was our inspector and he was top notch! He performed an extremely thorough inspection and made us feel so much more comfortable as we're buying our new home. He met with our realtor and didn't mind talking through the report with her in person and me on the phone at the same time. He answered all my questions well and took the time to educate us on what he found. Thank you so much for your hard work!

1st Rate Inspections is an amazing company! The ladies in the office are friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. The inspector was extremely thorough and personable. The inspection process was a breeze from start to finish. The report was incredibly detailed and absolutely flawless.Adding to this because I just used 1st Rate for the second time and I received the same outstanding service! I just can't say enough good things about them!

First Telephone etiquette making appt with Dustin on a Saturday morning was outstanding! We are relocating to TX and Home Inspector Jesus came 2:30 pm that the same day!! Second Jesus was great inspecting house with Nick checking the sewer! Utilizing cameras for pipes is common and with all mature trees in TX plus we feel it is vital to check sewer lines when purchasing a home! Thank you Dustin, Jesus, Nick and Ty at 1st Rate! We also received the report on our new home in such a timely manner!

It is always great working with 1st Rate Inspections. The way they do their job is very professional and they find what needs to be found without scaring the buyers/sellers off. Their reports are easy to read and understand. I keep recommending them.

Our inspector was Bruce Kolambel. He was punctual, professional, very thorough and friendly. He went through his findings with us after he finished, made sure we understood everything and answered all our questions. My husband and I both appreciated his professionalism and would hire him again if needed.

Rodney was such a nice & professional type of guy ! He made me feel comfortable and calm throughout the whole experience, telling me things I needed to know before purchasing my first home ! He made me even more excited about purchasing my first home. I thought I knew what was going on but he saw and pointed out many things that I missed! 1st rate inspectors & Rodney did a really good job with my inspection. Definitely would recommend & use them in the future if necessary.

Very thorough, professional and compliant with any and all requests. I appreciated the friendly communication and felt comfortable asking all the questions I needed to understand. The only thing left was that the trim was not secured back for the crawl space.
