 "Jim and Great West Inspection has inspected my last two houses before I purchased them. He is very honest, thorough and knowledgeable. He provides an extensive report at the end of the inspection. Last year, when he inspected the house we were purchasing, he found several problems that we had the seller address before we would finalize the purchase. Saved me a lot of headaches later!"
