Christopher Stratton at Stratton Home Inspections was very friendly, professional, thorough, and informative. He made the inspection process like a piece of cake.
Their pricing was some of the most competitive I’d seen as I researched inspectors. Additionally, they include a handful of warranties just for using their services.
