Todd Strader did my inspection and he was a God send. This is my first home purchase and he made it all so easy. The inspection was thorough and the accompanying photos made everything so much more understandable. I had about a thousand questions as he was doing his work and he was very courteous and patient in answering them all. I ended up backing out that home based on the detailed inspection information, but I've already made my second appointment with Avalon to inspect another home I'm under contract on. I'm so glad I found such a trustworthy company. I"ll definitely recommend them to friends and use them again if I ever have the need for an inspection.

Todd did an awesome job. He was at the house early and did a thorough job inspecting the house and answering all questions and concerns. Even the builder was impressed by his detail report. I would recommend him to anyone that needs inspection and will use him again.

There is little to say, because I had no negatives for the inspection done in my new Vinings townhome. Then all the positives are already on the previous reviews, but I'll highlight that I felt informed during the inspection and that the report, which arrived later on the same day of the inspection, was detailed and easy to understand. The pictures with visuals are all I needed to understand the report.

Getting a home inspection can be nerve racking but Todd really helped eased that. He was very thorough and made sure I well understood all areas that I should be concerned. He gave me great tips and recommendations so that I can know what to prioritize and how to handle anything he may have found. Additionally, he was very accommodating to our schedule. I plan on using his services again and will recommend him to anyone I know seeking an inspection.

Todd Strader did a wonderful job. I was nervous about the whole process, but he gave me a peace of mind as he was inspecting the house. He talked me through the whole process and gave me information on what I can to do if he saw something that needed to be fixed but wasn't anything urgent.

Todd did our inspection and was extremely thorough, knowledgable, and helpful. In order to work for Avalon, you are required to be a contractor first. He also does Real Estate on the side. Put all of this together and you have a wealth of knowledge that you NEED. He used an infrared camera to detect what was going on behind the walls (something some companies charge extra for). The report was given the same day via email, with details and photos explaining exactly what was going on with the house. For such a phenomenal service, you'd think it would be more costly. NOPE! I was told by a competitor while I was getting quotes, to count myself lucky that I got it for that low ($100 less than what the competitor was charging.) So save yourself a little time, and just trust the tons of people who have nothing but good things to say about Avalon.

We were super excited about finding the "perfect" home...until Joe,our home inspector, found hidden problems. The home had major plumming leaks and possible septic problems. Joe saved us from a nightmare! 2 months later, as we began the search for our dream house, Avalon Home Inspections was only a phone call away. They put our mind at ease with hidden problems during the home buying process. Extremely honest and trusting. EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE!! We are extremely grateful and blessed to have used their serivces :)

Very pleased with the home inspection. I called Todd Thursday and he was there Friday at 1pm with the report turned around by 5pm. Very detailed report and thorough examination of the new home I'm purchasing. Todd identified areas of concern, provided detailed photos and explanations and walked me through the entire process. He is knowledgeable & honest in his assessments while focused on the work. Cost is very reasonable, with discounts provided when you schedule on-line. I went with the Home Inspection & radon testing - which is discounted when put together. Highly recommend their service!

Todd Strader is great! When I called to setup my appointment he told me he would take pictures of the property, and give me a detailed report on the house's condition. As we walked around he addressed any concerns that I had about the condition of the house, and what would be needed to repair it. I was very impressed by his service and would recommend him to everyone I know needing a home inspector.
