“Steve Smallman Property Inspections completed a home inspection as part of a due diligence prior to purchase. Mr. Smallman did a thorough job and documented all issues and possible issues. In this current housing market of “highest and best,” a true and honest inspection allows us, non-investors, to make the best decisions. I would have and have recommended Steve Smallman Property Inspections to all.”

“Steve Smallman came to my home and did an absolutely outstanding job. He was prompt in replying to my initial inquiry and was very thorough and helpful in the roof inspection he performed. I learned, via photos and clear explanation, exactly what to do to maintain my 17-year-old roof. Afterward he immediately followed up, as promised, with some trustworthy alternatives for the maintenance. Truly professional and unreservedly and enthusiastically recommend!”
