Just wanted to let you know that Mr. Schott did an excellent job with inspecting the residence June 2, 2014. Mr. Schott was very meticulous and thorough, and he took the time to outline all the items under inspection and explain all of the findings. He made several recommendations on how to remedy several issues, and was very resourceful, knowledgeable, and professional. He was very personable, articulate, polite, and courteous. This is the second time I have used your services, and I would not only use your company again, but also recommend your company to all of my colleagues, coworkers, and friends. Thanks for setting the bar of excellence for other companies offering the same services. You guys rock!

“I would like to commend Jay for the thoroughness of his inspection of our potential property today! Regardless of the outcome I was most pleased and I hope you let his supervisor know that as a result of his work we will have a house with a properly engineered roof or he will save us from potentially the most disastrous financial decisions of our lives. I will definitely request his assistance should we need your services again. I will tell all prospective homebuyers about your services!”

“I had such a positive experience with Jay. I am a single woman and first time home buyer, so you can imagine my concerns going into the whole process. I was not able to be with Jay during the inspection, but he sent a thorough report the same day with pictures, details, and recommendations. I called him the next day to see if he could give his professional opinion of the top red flag areas, and he was more than happy to do so. I am very pleased with Jay and Scott's Inspections for their commitment to quality work and customer service.”

Scotts Inspections as a company is so professional; the on-line confirmation and pre-inspection agreement, the company web-site with team and reviews. All reassuring to someone who has not dealt with Scotts and is from out of the area.  Jay reinforced the initial impression; he was early, spent time going through all the expected items and then spent time researching a specific code issue we had with the house.  His report was submitted same day.  I do not think we've ever had that before from an inspector. We will happily recommend you to others and when the time comes to have another inspection we will be calling your office.

“I am happy to give feedback about our experience with Scott's Inspection. It could not have been any easier! The website was easy. Electronic payment was easy. Accessing the report was easy. Everything was just plain easy! And then there was our inspector, Jay Schott. He was a delight to work with - professional and personable. What a valuable combination! We were able to meet him on site and he clearly explained some of the notes we were going to find on the final report. His explanations eliminated anxiety we would have experienced if we had just "received" the report. We would highly recommend Scott's Inspection.”

“Jay was an amazing professional. He worked with my wife and I around our schedule. He was inspecting a new build so it took him less time than anticipated but he waiting for us to come and meet with him even though we were running late in traffic.  He was clear, concise and spoke to us like he would speak to his own family. He didn't use any of his industry jargon, rather he explained the items to us in English. We are a first time home buyer so we didn't know what to expect during this inpsection process. Jay allow us the room to ask questions and he offered information that we normally wouldn't think of asking about. We are definitely coming back to you guys one month before our home warranty runs out so that we can inspect the home one more time, and any time that we have a home purchase in the future. Thanks for the great help.”

“Jay Schott is a true asset to your company. My fiance is in construction in South Bend, IN, and could not be here for the inspection. He was extremely concerned the inspector wouldn't be thorough or have our best interest in mind. Once he read Jay's report, he was thoroughly impressed and was very thankful Jay was chosen as our inspector. Thank you for having such a professional on your team and making us feel so much better about buying a home.”

- Martha M.

“If I can add my two cents, I wanted to tell you that I thought Jay was fantastic.  He was very thorough on the inspection and did not hesitate to bring any matters to our attention or answer any question that we might have had.  He was very professional and patient with us throughout the process.  If I had a comment card I would give him a 10/10.  Please extend my thanks to Jay and I look forward to receiving the report.”
