“I can’t say enough great things about Chad/Red Mountain Inspections. I met Chad while he was doing a new home purchase inspection for my niece and because he was so meticulous and detailed in not only conducting the inspection, but explaining highlights to us, I asked about a home maintenance inspection. Highly recommend having this done even if you’re not moving and absolutely recommended hiring Chad to do it. He’s clearly dedicated to the work and his professionalism is stellar!”

Rene W.

“Chad is phenomenal! Very professional, was available on very short notice, precise and thorough. Answered all the questions we had and was very detailed in his report which we received by the end of the same day. He’s done inspections on 3 or 4 of the house we were either looking to buy or bought, and treated us like family! Highly highly recommend Red Mountain Inspection and Chad!!! Thank you so much for all your hard and detailed work, very much appreciated!”
