Had Harold inspect my first home. He was very thorough and helped me understand everything as he was going through. His report was easy to read and understand, plus it has pictures to hold my attention.

I made an offer on a house and had an inspection done by HJ Home Inspections. The inspection was very thorough and the detailed report was 93 pages long and included pictures of all the issues found.

HJ Home Inspections came highly recommended to me from multiple sources, and it shows. Harold was incredibly kind, smart, and patient. I was able to follow him through the process and ask questions, I know I slowed him down, but without hesitation, he answered and did a great job of making sure I understood. The final report was very thorough and easy to follow. I would recommend HJ Home Inspections to anyone.

The seller of the home I was having inspected had their previous inspection out on the kitchen table during our inspection. It was roughly 12 pages long. Harold's inspection was nearly 80 pages! He was extremely thorough! Harold did a very good job with the inspection. He answered any and all questions I threw at him and even walked me through some actions needed and necessary steps/recommendations on some things. Even on minor things that weren't necessarily deal breakers he still documented. This gave me a very detailed Honey-Do list for when we move in. I will definitely call him again if I ever need a Home Inspection in the future.

Harold is very knowledgeable and professional in his approach. He took the time necessary to walk thru the 100 page report in sufficient detail such that we understood his findings. I would use him again in a heartbeat! Scott Wright

Mr. Van Dyk was very thorough and gave me a detailed report in a PDF form. He let me walk around with him and ask questions as we moved around the inside and outside of the house. He was very knowledgeable and helped point out whether concerns were major ones, minor ones, and the best route to get my questions professionally answered. Well worth the money. Would highly recommend him.

Harold was professional and very detailed through the entire process. He arrived early and stayed until the job was done. He inspected two houses for us. His first inspection found so many issues, we backed out of the deal and saved a large sum of money. THANKS Harold! During the inspection, he shared his knowledge on heating, electrical, cooling, sprinkler systems, etc. I appreciate his honesty during the entire process. If you want a great inspector who looks out for buyer's best interest, go with HJ Home Inspections.

I have had Harold inspect the last two personal residences I have purchased and he is simply the best. He is very knowledgeable, honest, ethical and accurate. Precisely the type of professional you would want to check over your home before making a purchase. He has also performed his stellar services for many of my clients over the years. You can always be certain his work is thorough and accurate every time. I can confidently recommend his services to anyone in need of a thorough home inspection. John Fanthorpe

As a Real Estate Agent, I used to go through Home Inspectors about every 2 or 3 years. I could overlook one complaint but when they got a second one I felt it was time to move on. Harold has been doing my inspections for the past 14 years, I believe. A lot of my clients thank me for choosing him. Dan Stegman

When it comes to home inspections – Harold is the best! In over 15 years I have yet to have a client less than satisfied with his thoroughness, ability to explain his inspections, and his overall professionalism. Additionally, I’ve purchased several rentals and Harold has inspected each of them prior to close. Dan Otten

Harold provides thorough inspections at a good price. Joseph Parnell McCarter

It seemed like a very detailed inspection and all little and big issues were pointed out. Also, he did not think that a mold inspection was necessary since he said that the house seemed to be in great condition. He answered all questions we had about the house very patiently. A very detailed report was provided which was very easy to read and understand. He even sent a soft copy to the real estate agent soon after the inspection was done. Great service. Ravikiran Kakaraparthi

Harold was at the home when we arrived for the inspection. He was organized, professional and personable. He is very knowledgable and to the point with his assessment. He took his time and answered all of our questions. We were very impressed with our book and CD that we received at the end of the inspection. We would recommend HJ Inspections to anyone looking for an inspector when purchasing home.
An additional thank you for taking the time to talk with us about general renovations and best practices.
Wishing you many years of success! Great Job – Thank you!!!

Harold was top notch and very helpful. Chris Glass

HJ Inspections has already inspected 2 houses for me. He has been very helpful in giving advice, thorough, punctual and dependable Joseph McCarter

Harold was wonderful! I mean really great. He did a lot more than just note the state of things as we walked through. He gave great advice all the time. He was worth every penny and more-an invaluable resource. He printed out the inspection results right there and was a great balance between efficiency and thoroughness. Holly Bechiri

Provided inspection of multi-family property for the Buyer in a sale of the property. Inspected all common areas and 6 of 66 units. Inspection included plumbing, electrical, structure, hvac, grounds, roofs, exterior structure and rooms. Work was for about 5 hours. Excellent overall experience. Harold was on time, courteous and professional. He struck the right balance between thoroughness and expediency – this was a large property and we could not inspect every unit. His conclusions gave us an excellent understanding of the condition of the property and information to seek compensation from the Seller pre-closing. Pete Lazzari
