“We recently hired Brightside for a home inspection and water quality test for a property we are in the process of buying. We have had such a great experience working with Scott, I will certainly recommend him to anyone I know who is in the market to buy a home. The inspection took around 4 hours, and he was very thorough. My husband owns a construction company and has an extensive amount of knowledge on home construction and repair, and Scott pointed out some things that even my husband did not initially notice.

The report that was provided was extremely thorough, delivered within 24 hours, contained many pictures, and we were able to forward it on to our realtor to use for negotiations with the sellers. The well written report provided us the leverage we needed to obtain the seller’s help in making some of the noted repairs.

As for the water quality test – we are purchasing a home with a well, which is outside the home inspection process provided by Brightside. This was well explained prior to the appointment. We did however, have Scott’s team collect a sample of the well water. This is typically paid for by the sellers but we opted to pay for it ourselves so that we could choose the company to run the test. We chose Brightside for this because they test for more than just bacteria, which is all that is required for most mortgage loans. I am so glad we opted to have this more extensive test run. The results revealed that the water was highly contaminated with a couple harmful agents, and higher than desirable for others. Given that this is a home we plan to raise our small children – this could have been extremely detrimental to their health.

We are now able to remedy the situation thanks to the test we had performed by Brightside. I could not be more pleased with the customer service provided, and will certainly be contacting them for any future home inspection or water quality issues in the future.”

“We heard great things about Brightside Home Inspections, so we picked up the phone, and scheduled our home inspection.

Our experience far exceeded our expectations. Scott; our inspector was prompt and on time, very friendly. He introduced himself and we got straight to work. We first did the entire perimeter, from the lawn to the siding to the gutters, then on the inside..ducts, furnace, bathroom, kitchen, attic, basement…everything…he was very meticulous and thorough…

We will hire Brightside Home Inspections again when we buy our next house!”

“Scott exceeded any and all of our expectations with his inspection of our new home. He took his time and paid attention to all the details. Scott’ was able to explain any areas of concern and gave us great advice that helped us negotiate a better deal. If you are looking for a fair and honest inspection of your potential new home, Brightside is the BEST! Highly recommended!”

“…It was our first time buying a house and the inspector was helpful and explained everything so we would understand.

After he finished inspecting everything he walked us around the house and pointed out the most important problems he found which was a huge help. We were sent a detailed report with even more information the next day.

We also had a radon test done which showed high radon levels. Between the radon and a few other minor problems were able to lower the purchase price by $2500 and get the radon problem fixed by the sellers.

All in all a few hundred dollars saved us a few thousand and we learned a ton about the house…”

Scott did an awesome job for us! Very professional and thorough, he really made us understand the house. I definitely recommend him for anyone that wants a thorough unbiased inspection.

I submitted an offer on a foreclosed property and wanted to hire a reputable inspector. I found Brightside Home Inspections on Google and decided to give them a call.

The office associate was friendly and I was able to book an appointment that fit my schedule. Jeff showed up to the property early, which I appreciated. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the process to me and answer every question I had.

Overall, I received excellent service that exceeded my expectations. I have already recommended Brightside Home Inspections to family and friends and will continue to do so.

“We had Brightside Home Inspections look at our new home purchase. Scott was very professional, friendly, and informative. When we showed up ten minutes early, he was already there inspecting the roof. He then proceeded to show us all of the issues that needed attention, as well as all the areas that should be in good shape and won’t need much attention any time soon. Inside, he went through each room very thoroughly and explained the things that needed attention and that we should alter our final offer on the home. He was very informative and it was a very educational experience. We would absolutely use Scott/Brightside on future home purchases!”
