I am an ASHI certified Home Inspector performing Professional Home Inspections and Environmental testing services in Western Pennsylvania. Some of my most popular services include DEP certified Radon testing, Septic Dye and Well Flow Testing as well as Termite and Wood Destroying Insect evaluations.
John was a great asset in the home buying process. He took the time to explain what he was looking at and why he was looking at it in a way that anyone could understand. I felt confident after his home inspection that he educated me enough to make an informed decision about the house I was looking to purchase. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a home inspection.

Extremely happy! It was a pleasure working with John. He was very professional and walked me through out the entire process and took all the time I needed to personally talk with me and answer any questions and explanations. Very thorough and knowledgeable and did not miss a thing. He made the stressful time of buying a home a lot less stressful! I highly recommend Safe Buy. Thank you for everything!!

This is the first time I've ever been through a home inspection. John explained everything he was doing, and why, and made the whole experience seem a little less daunting. By the time everything was finished, I felt like I had a pretty good idea about the house and what it needed. I'd recommend him to anybody.

I highly recommend Safe Buy for your home inspection! We walked through everything and he didn't miss a single corner or detail of the home we are buying. I ask a lot of questions and he didn't mind at all and answered and explained everything and took the time to even show me as he explained. This set me so much at ease with my new home and gave me confidence that I was buying a well maintained home. The report was extremely thorough and gave great recommendations for future improvements. It was easy to read and understand and included a picture to go with each summary.

I highly recommend John and the Safe Buy team! They were extremely thorough and took the time to answer all of our questions and explain everything to us as we walked through the home. John is also great at putting the findings in perspective to give the buyer a sense of what may or may not be critical. We were very pleased with the level of detail and format of the report, which was generated within 24 hours of the inspection. During the process, John always made himself available to talk or answer questions. If you're looking for a home inspector, stop now and call Safe Buy!

John and his crew were very professional performing a very detailed comprehensive review. He was available or quickly returned telephone calls and IMs dedicating whatever time was needed to satisfy the customer. I highly recommend his company to any home buyer.

I accompanied John and Doug during the inspection. They both go above and beyond when it comes to teaching home safety. They gave me great advice on how to extend the longevity of simple things in the home or creating backups in case of a power outage or severe weather storms. They both explained potential defects to me in great detail and what to keep an eye on in the future. I would highly recommend Safe Buy Home Inspection for any potential buyers out there!

I'm not just a buyer, I am also a Realtor. Over the years I have accompanied many buyers on home inspections. John and Doug are two of the best I have ever met! Their thorough and informative inspection kept me from making a very costly mistake! As a Realtor, I plan on recommending them to my clients and other Realtors in the future. I want my clients to receive the same high level of knowledge and professionalism that I received on the home inspection that they did for me.

My wife and I have purchased several houses through the 40 years we have been married and I've got to say, this is the 'BEST" home inspection reports we have ever received. The detail John Fordyce, owner of Safe-Buy Home Inspections report is off the chart. When John inspects your property, every part of the property is thoroughly inspected and a detail description of his findings are documented along with many photos and detail explanations of possible causes. In addition, John's report also includes important details of the property such as where the water and electric shut offs are located and suggestions such as "circuit breaker" labels are needed to identify what each breaker is for. To sum it up, this was the best money we have ever spent. I highly recommend you use John / Safe-Buy Home Inspections when needed as you will NOT be disappointed. I GURANTEE IT
