Kind Words :

"Best building inspection I have ever witnessed! Tripp had an organized approach and quickly worked thru the property in a professional & detailed manner. He took the time to review the areas of concern with me on site. The infra-red survey was impressive too. The next day a detailed report was available for my use. Highly recommend!"


“The inspection service Tripp provided for many years in Summit County Colorado are truly missed.  I was forced to see the reports done by other inspectors since I did not always have a voice in the decision of which inspector to use.  Tripp in fact always did such a good job of not only identifying problems but also direction on solving those problems.  I always recommended him to the sides of the transactions I was a broker on.  Even more importantly when it was a property I was buying he for sure was the trusted man.”
