Hear what our clients are saying about Lakeshore Home Inspection:
"Hi Don my name is Bob... I had a house for sale that you came and inspected. I just wanted to tell you 'thanks a lot.' I saw the list of things that needed to be fixed and it was very agreeable. And I thought it a fair list. The gas leak by the dryer that you pointed out is fixed already and I am working on other things. I know that you are in the type of business that people like to bark at you a lot. So, I just wanted to tell you that I appreciated the inspection that you wrote up and that you did a good job."
-Bob H.

"The thoroughness of your inspection gave me the confidence that I was buying a ‘Solid’ house. Also the inspection report will provide me with a blueprint to fix the relatively minor items that do need attention."
-Edwin T. W.

"Thank you for the services you provided for my wife and me. Your inspection of our [improperly installed] laminate floor served as valuable evidence in our case [against the installer]. We will always remember the quality work you did for us and will look forward to calling on you for our future needs."
-Matt C.

"Thanks so much for the through home inspection. I close tomorrow, then only three more weeks of waiting. I appreciate your expertise."
-Nancy M.

"We wanted to write a note to you, ‘thanking you’ for your home inspection report done on the home we purchased.... We have lived in Holland for three years now and were advised by several people to definitely get a building analysis report done before we bought the home. Since we were somewhat new to the area, we looked in the yellow pages for numbers to call. You were one of the three we called and you were the first to respond back to us. Are we ever glad you did! You were at our home (to buy) before our scheduled appointment (very prompt) and you wasted no time starting your inspection. Your inspection was very through and professionally done. You were very helpful in pointing out several noteworthy things to look at and watch for the future. I was very impressed at how detailed and complete you inspection was done. You had mentioned the pictures and the detailed inspection factbook would be made available for a modest additional charge. Boy were you right! What an impressive and detailed report you provided for us. We are very, very pleased with your work and the professionalism you demonstrated at all times. We also felt the pricing was very completive to the others we checked out. We will most definitely recommend your company if asked in the future. Thank you for an excellent home inspection reports."
