Mike Kelly was on time and extremely professional. Mike was thorough and took the time to answer my many questions. His report was very detailed and his experience put me at ease. At the same time Randall Getzoff performed the pest inspection, and also provided a great report. I really appreciated his knowledge and thoughtful answers to my questions as well. I highly recommend Valueguard for their...

Our Home Inspector Robert was extremely knowledgeable and very meticulous in his inspection of a home that we were in the process of purchasing. He spent three hours going over every inch of the property from basement to roof pointing out various items that should be addressed. He subsequently provided a detailed written report the next day which included photos of the potential problem areas. Rob...

Reid was super knowledgeable about all the details of the house and easy to talk to and ask questions. As a first time home buyer, I appreciated his patience and willingness to answer my questions even a week after the inspection. All around the ValueGuard team was very responsive and professional. I highly recommend them!

Mike K did our inspection and went above and beyond. He spent 8 hours (!) at the very old, large house and was not only thorough but also provided us an education along the way. My realtor said she’d never seen anything like it! Highly recommend

As a first time home buyer, I wasn't sure what to expect from the inspection process. Steve Haslam was incredibly patient and friendly. He walked me through everything he would later note on the report, which was every bit as thorough and detailed as the sample report on the ValueGuard website. I was able to buy my home with confidence thanks to their services and would not hesitate to use them ag...

My inspector was awesome. We had to move the inspection date two times and they were extremely accommodating. He was thorough and friendly. I was assured that I could ask him anything or go over whatever concerns I had. I found the experience to be very positive and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a home inspection to hire this company.

Steven Haslam was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, observant, and patient. I never felt like he was rushing, and we had a long time. He was meticulous and took the extra time to point things out to me and explain as we went along. I look forward to working with him again.

This was our fourth pre-purchase inspection with Valueguard (third with Mike Kelly). Valueguard inspectors have a deep understandIng of unique issues of old Philly houses and are very thorough! Their inspections take a little longer and cost slightly more, but they more than pay for themselves when buying an older Philly home! You can proceed with full confidence that you have a clear understandin...

This was my second time working with Mike Kelley as the home inspector. Mike is friendly, knowledgeable, and very thorough in conducting the inspection. ValueGaurd also sent two separate inspectors to complete the Wood Infestation and Radon Inspection. Everyone was there on time and the work was completed as expected.
