Our Satisfied Customers

RJ Inspections did a wonderful job recently with our home inspection. Graham was personable, timely, and a great teacher in the ways of home care, which is one of the most important aspects of a home inspection. He, and the whole team from RJ, took their time to ensure everything was done correctly from information intake to the actual inspection and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Graham also let us hang behind him for the entire inspection and welcomed questions, explained issues, and also took the time to explain how things are going to look on the report.
