Wow - this is the best inspection I have ever had. Being retired military, I have moved a lot and had many inspections in the past. This was the most thorough and professional job yet.

Caveat Emptor LV performed a home inspection for a home I am in the process of purchasing. Carmen Tricolo was our inspector and he went above and beyond with his inspection. He not only recorded things that needed repairs, but positive things as well. They were on time, and I receved my inspection report within 24 hours. The eye for detail this company has is unbelievable. I will most definately use them again if we purchase another home in the future. Thanks again you guys!
