We hired Bay Home Inspections twice to inspect the properties we were interested in buying. The owners of the company, Mr. Mike Bender and his wife (Jennifer) did our inspection. One thing that stood out during our interaction with Mike and Jennifer was that they really enjoy what they do which showed in the quality of their work. They did a thorough inspection of the property and explained to us ...

Thank you for just top-notch review! This assignment entailed evaluation of an upscale home. Although the home was newer, leaving the client to expect no major concerns, our evaluation revealed that structural alterations had occurred to the second story, potentially resulting in structural deficiency. Despite being a relatively clean house, we also provided long list of deferred maintenance and n...

Excellent job done. We were on a very tight time schedule to have our house inspected. Bay Home Inspections made the time for our house inspection. We actually had a detailed written, along with pictures, report emailed to us that night. Can not say enough good things about them. Highly recommend them.

I am so happy that I went with Bay Home Inspections! From the beginning, Mike answered every call and email. I was able to schedule my buyer's inspection within days of initially contacting Mike. He showed up day of and conducted a very thorough inspection of the home. Once he was done, he walked me through his findings and showed me how to turn on and off some of the main valves/switches.

FANTASTIC! We found Bay Home Inspections through Angie's List as we do for most contractors and service providers. The firm had a high number of "A" ratings on Angie's List and will have another "A" rating there from me when I finish this review! Mr. Bender, the principal owner of Bay Home Inspections, called me immediately after my inquiry and explained the service to be provided and the fee. In ...

Michael and Jennifer were extraordinarily detailed in their inspection and very helpful in walking us through the home, explaining the findings, and offering suggestions on how to address and prioritize issues.

As a previous homeowner but first-time prospective buyer of a manufactured home, I am so glad I waited a week for Michael Bender with Bay Homes Inspections to become available to do our inspection. I was nervous about purchasing a manufactured home, and wanted to be sure I chose an inspector who knew what he was doing. Michael was so worth the wait!! He arrived to the house early and then spent ov...

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this very detailed account of our performance. It is unfortunate that, as a result of our reputation, immediate scheduling can be difficult or impossible.
