Happy Customers

Al Durant was very good! He was on time, very respectful and nice. He made sure that everything he saw a problem with, big or small, he informed us in depth of the issue. He has excellent customer service. I was able to call him any time and if he didn't answer, his turn around was quick. I would recommend Al to anyone.

Pre-purchase inspection performed. Al was great throughout the process, from start to finish. His website made it easy to schedule our appointment (the day before even!) and the process of confirming our appointment was very streamlined. Day-of the inspection he arrived early to assess the outside of the home and did a thorough job throughout. He explained his findings during our visit together and our report was ready within a day and was very thorough. Would definitely use again and recommend to others!

If you want a top-to-bottom inspection from a consummate professional, you have found the right home inspector! Mr. Durant was a pleasure to work with. I am a first-time homebuyer and Mr. Durant patiently answered all of my questions, gave me great tips as the inspection took place, and provided an extremely detailed report in less than 48 hours. If I need home inspection services again, Al Durant and Uptown Inspection LLC will definitely be my first choice.

My experience with Uptown Inspection was exceptional. I actually ended up needing two home inspections for two different houses in a very short time span. Mr. Durant made a way to schedule me in on short notice and in my opinion he did a phenomenal job. This was my first house purchase and the level of detail and knowledge he exhibited gave me full confidence in the inspection i was receiving. I left with a ton of knowledge and great recommendations as to how to proceed with my house purchase. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Durant and Uptown Inspection to anyone looking for a very thorough, detailed, and professional home inspection experience.

We are pleased with the service and scheduling even after some back and forth on our end. Al was flexible and professional. The inspection was on time. The inspection report was detailed and delivered the next day! We stopped by the property being inspected and Al was able to give us a high level assessment and explain some of his recommendations. I would highly recommend!

It was a pleasure working with Al. My realtor connected us, so he could inspect the home I was preparing to purchase. Al not only did a thorough inspection, he also took the time to explain preventative maintenance my home would need. As a first time homebuyer, I learned so much!

Al’s pricing was reasonable, he worked diligently, but quickly & was friendly & professional.

I love my new home & I’ve already recommended Al’s services to friends who are also purchasing homes, & are in need of inspections.

If/when I buy my next home, I will definitely reach out to him again.

My wife and I used their pre-purchase home inspection and was very pleased. The inspection was very thorough and the report provided detailed explanations for each section of the home. I was even satisfied with the price of the service. I highly recommend their services.

Found Al through my real estate agent. This is my first house and I did not know what to expect during an inspection. I was very nervous because I knew the condition of the house was not in the best of shape. Al was very professional and talked me through all the steps of the process. He was on time, even started the outside inspection before our actual inspection time. Before the inspection, I was informed to not ask questions throughout the inspection, that asking questions would interrupt the process. Every time Al finished a section he would ask me did I have any questions and explained what he did. He found problems in the house that I was not even aware of. He made recommendations for me that I would never have thought of. Even though I was punching numbers in my head of how much everything would cost, Al reassured me that the house I was getting was a good choice. The inspection report was received a day after inspection with plenty of pictures of what needed to be fixed. I ended up getting the house, and all the recommendations Al gave to me I am slowly fixing. Highly Recommend. Thank You!!!

Al was very courteous and very patient. He arrived at the property before I did and had already started. In the beginning of the inspection he was very professional, by the end of the inspection he felt like family.

The report provided was very thorough and the pictures were very helpful. Al also addressed all my questions.

Scheduling the inspection was a breeze, especially at the last minute. He was able to fit me just two days before my inspection deadline.

Al thank you so much for your professionalism!

Don't hesitate, call Uptown Inspection for inspection needs!

Al from Uptown Inspection was referred to me by a mutual friend. He was very knowledgeable and provided a thorough inspection for our newly-built home that we purchased back in February. He was able to find and note things that we didn't think to look for or that we didn't notice during our initial orientation of the home with the construction manager. His pricing was fair and we received our report in a timely manner in order for the builder to address our concerns prior to closing. My husband and I were very pleased with the service and we highly recommend! Thank you Al!

If you want a top-to-bottom inspection from a consummate professional, you have found the right home inspector! Mr. Durant was very knowledgeable, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. Since this inspection occurred during the coronavirus pandemic, he was very cognizant of mask use and social distancing the whole time.

As a first-time homebuyer and Mr. Durant patiently answered ALL of my many questions, gave me great tips and tricks as the inspection took place, and provided an extremely detailed report in less than 48 hours. If I need home inspection services again, Al Durant and Uptown Inspection LLC will definitely be my first choice.

My husband and I put an offer on our first home together and it's hard to find a company to trust in each part of the process.

The inspection was extremely thorough, throughout the inspection process he explained everything and gave vital in-site. Because of this inspection we were able to request necessary repairs, receive a credit from the seller.

Purchasing a home is a stressful job, make sure you go with an inspector that is going to inspect the property like it's his own home .
