Comment: George was very thorough. He was able to uncover a localized area of
mold that was pretty hidden. Without him, I would have had a serious problem on
my hand post closing. He has also done a wonderful job following up with me
post inspection to make sure I didn’t have any other issues

Comment: George was very thorough and very professional. During the inspection,
George was careful to explain to us everything he was doing, as well as the
‘whats’ and ‘whys’ of the process. We feel that he did an exceptional job
providing an opinion on which items were especially important, and those that
were not so important. This was especially value-added for individuals like us
who have limited knowledge on things like house inspections.

George Norberg of Detail Home Inspection was able to assist my clients
on a very tight timeline. He was efficient, highly knowledgeable and prepared a
comprehensive report. I would use George and his company in the future.

George did a great job inspecting our home and included me in his
inspection which I really appreciated. He also made great suggestions to
improve our move in process with getting our ducts cleaned.

“I was very pleased with the home inspection provided by Detail Home Inspection, Inc.   The inspector, George Norberg, was very thorough in his review, and ensured I was engaged and understood the steps he was taking during the inspection.  George provided an excellent post inspection detail report and images well within 24 hours.  It is without hesitation that I would recommend Detail Home Inspection, Inc., for any future home inspection needs.”

George was great at explaining the process as he went along, and the  report afterwards was very detailed and easy to understand. I appreciated his  help so much!

George did a great job. He was professional and timely, he took  pictures of the entire house along with the problem areas which were a big  help. His comments and suggestions were spot on. He sent us the report early  the next morning and followed up with me to make sure I understood the report  and was satisfied with the content. A couple days later, i contacted him to ask some clarifying questions and he was able to answer all my questions and  offered sound advise.

Thank you so much!  The report is very thorough-and easy to understand:)  I appreciate your time and help.  Thanks again!


George did a fantastic job! Was very thorough and answered all of our questions. He made us

Thank you for getting my home inspection done for me today.  I really appreciated it and how you interacted with me and my daughter during the inspection.  The report is thorough and gives me all the information I need concerning repairs and maintenance of the property.


You were GREAT!

The report was great. Very thorough. I can very clearly see why you are recommended so highly. Thank you very much!

I contacted George Norberg at Detail Home Inspection on very short notice to see if he could accommodate an inspection for a client of mine, who was left in a bind by another home inspection company . George was able to schedule, perform and deliver the inspection report within a very tight window. My client contacted me to tell me how impressed he was with George’s timeliness, service and expertise. A good referral is a positive reflection on me, so thank you George! I will not hesitate to continue to give your name to my clients.

Dear George,

 We had a successful closing on July 8th.  I want to say thank you for getting us through the inspection process, particularity with the additional fielding you did post inspection.
All the best, Maria

It is always a plus when the buyer of a home is happy with the detail and explanations of a home inspection. In this case my buyers were very happy. Also their attorney was impressed with the thoroughness of the report and accompanying photos. He is planning on recommending you and your company next time he has a client looking for an inspection. Thanks for a job well done!

Thanks again for the inspection. The report was very thorough. We will get everything fixed.
David and DanielaGeorge was very thorough and did a great job explaining things as he went along. Exactly what we needed. The inspection report came back to us quickly and was very detailed and professional.

I would to thank you George for your very professional and well done inspection on our future home. I would absolutely recommend your services for anyone looking for a home inspector.

Thank you again for a job well done, Milo & Kelly

So glad to have had George inspect our potential home! It was great that he wanted both me and my fiance there with him every step of the way. He checked every area of the house, inside and out, and pointed out where important features of the home were located and how they functioned. In addition, George recommended a great construction company to camera the sanitary line from the house to the street. We found a huge issue with water backing up in the sanitary line, which could have cost of thousands of dollars had it not been noted on our home inspection report. George is a great inspector with a “tell it like it is” approach. He gets the job done and gives you peace of mind about your potential home purchase. Thanks George!

Thank you for your thorough inspection of our future house. My wife and I are much more confident in our investment after your report.

I’ve been through many home inspections and the inspection that George conducted was, by far, the most thorough and educational I’ve seen. Thank you.

Thank you for your thorough inspection and detailed report. It is much appreciated.

George did a great job and is very detail oriented. Would highly reccommend him to anyone needing an inspection.

You earned my trust by being the most thorough inspector I have met. Cheers, Tom

George – Sorry I haven’t gotten back to you, its been pretty crazy. I wanted to let you know that we were very happy with your work and the final inspection report really helped us in negotiating some additional credits from the seller. Thanks for being so throrough and professional in your inspection.

George, You did a great job. You seem very knowledgable and I like how you explain things to the buyer in a non-alarming way. This buyer was easy going but some can so spooked over what amounts to not such big items. Thanks again!

George is the most thorough inspector I have ever worked with. My realtor who uses inspectors every other week was so impressed, she is planning on using him in the future. She is even planning on using him as a consultant from time to time.

George was great! He took several pictures and was very fast in getting us a detailed report that was very well written and easy to follow.

George did a great job! Our report contained colored pictures that highlighted each area of concern. George followed up with us the next day about any questions that we had. Overall we felt that he did a fantastic job and would recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspector.


We were referred to George by a friend of ours who said he was the best, and they were right!  George was wonderful and professional the entire way through.  We contacted him last minute for an inspection, he was very flexible scheduling with us.  That house ended up not working out, so we called him for the next one and he had the same flexibility with us. He came out right away, was very thorough, and had the report to us the next morning which is very detailed.  We are so thankful with how friendly, professional, and knowledgeable he is.  He pointed out items that we would have never caught, which was very much appreciated.  We will 100% call George again when needed, and tell all of our friends and family to as well.  –Sean and Heather

George was flexible when our inspection date had to be postponed. He was friendly, courteous  and very professional.
His thorough and detailed report contained explanations and pictures. The suggestions he made about repairs were very helpful.

Throughout our search for a home that fits our family’s needs, we have relied exclusively upon George Norberg to consistently provide easy-to-understand information on whether a potential home is in good repair or not. More importantly, because of George, we have never witnessed the horror stories that our friends and families have experienced first-hand with “less-than-professional” inspectors.

The report was great. Very helpful and clear. We decided to find a smaller place that has been better taken care of, so we are going to keep looking. I believe that your report saved us alot of stress and potential heartache in the future. I’ll call when we find another place.

George Norberg is very professional in his inspections and contacts with potential homeowners. We highly recommend him for anyone who needs a potential home inspected.

We’ve worked with George on two separate occasions, once when he did the inspection for my brother in law’s home and once for my own. We were extremely pleased with his service both times and found him to be both courteous and thorough.
To begin with, he was willing to squeeze us in at the last minute during the holiday season and was very prompt in arriving. While he was doing the inspections, he took the time to pull us aside to show us the major issues that he thought we should be aware of, as well as explain how each issue could turn into a future problem. After he had finished the inspection, he made sure to send the report to us the very next day complete with detailed pictures of what he had found. Finally, after we had discussed repair options with the sellers, he was willing to give us advice on what we should expect out of the contractors in repairing the problems.
Overall I would say we were extremely pleased with George’s level of service and would recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspection.

I had expressed some concerns about the property before the inspection; he addressed those issues plus pointed out other possible issues I would have never caught. He also followed up after the report to see if there were any outstanding concerns, and offered his help if I needed it. The pictures were very useful to my wife and me. I already have recommended George to my friends and family.”
