The inspector was knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. We were on-site as he conducted the inspection, during which he provided detailed explanation for the issues he found and the questions we asked. The comprehensive 77 page report was delivered electronically as a PDF the morning following the inspection. The report was easy to understand and contained an overview summarizing the findings, followed by additional sections containing itemized details and many photographs of all items of concern identified during the inspection. We are very satisfied with Highland Home Inspections and we highly recommend them.

We had a wonderful experience with Highland Home Inspections. Rick Belliveau took extra time to ensure each item was thoroughly reviewed and addressed. When issues were found, Rick not only provided a detailed overview but gave personal recommendations to correct them, as well. Maintenance tips were provided throughout the inspection which were extremely helpful for first time home owners. An extensive report was provided before 9AM the next morning! We highly recommend Highland Home Inspections!

Our home inspection experience with JD Pyle of Highland Home Inspections was excellent. My wife and I, were standing in for our out of state daughter and son-in-law. We met Mr. Pyle at the house and followed him during the inspection. He was on time, friendly, knowledgeable and invited our questions as we went through the interior and exterior of the house. I felt comfortable asking even basic questions and learning about this 40+ year old house as we went through. He also helped with questions about possible repositioning of the washer/dryer, new attic insulation, roof condition, drainage, and aging appliances. A thorough, organized and well-structured inspection report was received the next day - complete with photos and comments. We are going into this home purchase knowing what needs immediate attention and what can be worked on over time. We highly recommend inspector Pyle and Highland Home Inspections.

I had the pleasure of working with Dan Fournier of Highland Home Inspections and I cannot say enough about how helpful he was in doing an inspection for a house I bought in Annapolis. He went above and beyond with helping me identify and prioritize repairs and improvements that need to be done in the house. He even returned to discuss with my handyman brother-in-law visiting from Alabama the work that he believed should happen right away. On top of all of this, he is a most pleasant, enjoyable person to work with.

The company itself was responsive and flexible, but the inspection/inspector was a cut above. Our inspector (Dan) was probably the most thorough, professional, and articulate member of the real estate exchange community I have ever encountered. He took his time to explain all the issues he found and helped us triage them by importance/immediacy/safety. His report captured our conversations and expounded upon his findings in a clear and concise fashion (with pictures). I would recommend this company to any one in the area.

JD Pyle did a great job. He was totally thorough and took the time needed to patiently test every outlet, every system, every nook and cranny in my house. Not only that, he gave me instructions on how to operate systems and equipment that was never covered by the builder. If JD hadn't told me, I would have had no idea how to make some needed changes. Furthermore, his recommendations were practical and his advise was solid. His report was in my inbox less than 24 hours later. Terrific inspection. Very professional. I highly recommend Highland Homes Inspections.

I was surprised (in the best way!) by the level of detail that my home inspector, JD, committed to the inspection, as well as the care he took to share his findings with me at every step. It was obvious to me that JD is not only a true expert, but someone who cares about the work he does. His home inspection made me a ten-fold more-informed homeowner. First class service; could not be more satisfied. Would give 6 out of 5 stars if I could.

The team at Highland, and specifically our inspector Felipe, were extremely responsive, professional, and helpful. Felipe's attention to detail, friendliness, and overall professionalism made the inspection such a great experience for my wife and I. Being first-time homeowners, he not only was attentive to every detail of our new home, but also provided thorough explanations of things he noticed with thorough recommendations given both on the spot, and in his report. He was patient, helpful with all our questions/concerns, and an overall pleasure to work with!I highly recommend Highland, and specifically, Felipe, to help you if you are searching/buying a new home and need an inspection. Going forward, Felipe and Highland will be my #1 recommendation to family, friends, and coworkers who are looking for reliable, responsive, and professional home inspection services.We can't thank Felipe enough!

He was very thorough, answered all of our questions, and provided noteworthy recommendations throughout the assessment. Overall, we were very pleased with the quality of service that was provided, and we highly recommend HHI to anyone looking to have an home inspection conducted.

He is honest and gives his detailed perspective about the seriousness of maintenence required for your home. He explained everything in an easy and digestible way.

He made sure to address any questions they had, and they reiterated how happy they were that they decided to get a home Inspection done on the home which is a new build. I was also pleased with the ease and ability to book the inspection for my clients. Dave helped direct me to scheduling and Debbie was prompt and helpful and got us on the books quickly. I look forward to working with the team at HHI again!

I used Highland Homes for an inspection prior to purchasing my house, and the experience was wonderful! They made it super easy, and my inspector Dan was very thorough and informative. I was a first time home buyer, and Dan made sure to explain everything in a way I could understand and made recommendations for ways to improve the house on a budget. He really kept in mind my level of knowledge and needs, and he was so honest. My dad is an engineer and insisted on being present for the inspection. Even he had only wonderful things to say about Dan!
