After nearly closing on house and going through a very basic inspection with a different company, we decided to instead make a purchase from a family member. This could have been an awkward situation because the house was in worse shape than expected after being rented out for some time. We were very lucky to have had Michael referred to us by a friend after his own inspection, which was incredibly thorough and a pleasant experience.
Michael is a wonderfully friendly and caring individual and spent more time at our house than a normal inspection would have required due to the poor care it had received while being rented out. He conducted all of the normal inspection procedures but then went further, investigating any/all damage to siding and roof, the underlying structure of the house in the crawl space, all of the electrical and plumbing, etc. I felt badly that it was in worse shape than we knew, but was extremely happy to have such a complete look at what would need to be addressed. We were able to negotiate better and to make a financial plan that worked for us and the family member to take care of the problems moving forward.
After the sale, Michael followed up with us and congratulated us on making it through our first home buying experience and checked again to make sure we were comfortable tackling the main safety items on the list. He truly cares about his clients and I cannot recommend him strongly enough! I legitimately feel that his service was worth more than we were charged, which in the scheme of home buying with all of the random "fees" is a wonderful thing to be able to say! You can be confident that you have all necessary information to plan and negotiate your purchase after receiving his final report and verbal communication regarding the good and bad areas of your prospected home!
Michael has completed two home inspections for myself and one for my daughter over the last 6 months. He is quite responsive, very thorough, and made time to not only go over his report in person, but also make sure that I understood what I was being told. Home buying and selling can be very complicated and stressful, but Michael's comprehensive inspections have made me feel educated and confident in the decisions I've made.
I would very highly recommend Gallant Home Inspection!
Buying a home is exciting and stressful. Understanding what we were purchasing with our future home and being prepared is so important. Michael at Gallant was so helpful. We had concerns about the crawl space - he identified an issue which helped us negotiate with our seller to install a water pump. He showed up on time, was very thorough and explained everything to us as he completed our inspection. We received our report the same day which helped us with our decision and move forward with our new home. I'd give 10 stars if that was possible. He saved us a lot of money. Thank you Gallant!!!! Highly recommend!
Michael did an excellent job! Was prompt and was able to do my inspection the next day after our first talk which was amazing since I was on a time frame! He did amazing work and was very thorough and walked us through the whole process as he was doing it! I felt very confident with what he was telling me and he showed true workmanship and professionalism! His prices are amazing for the great quality of work he did! I would recommend him to anyone, and saved his number myself for any future inspection I need!
Very responsive, cooperative and accommodating ... i had a purchase in work of a house in great condition but still wanted a full inspection and within a tight deadline -- Gallant accomodated me with a fair price given the condition of the house and made an exception to do the inspection within 24hrs. Great outfit -- highly Rx
Extremely happy with the service I received from Gallant Home Inspection, specifically, Michael, the owner. Had an accepted offer late in the day and Micheal was able to do the inspection the next morning. Very professional in all aspects. Very thorough and methodical. He treated this inspection as if he was buying the home. Very detailed reports with corresponding photos so I knew exactly what the issue (or non-issue) was. Answered all questions and even answered questions I should have asked. I would highly recommend Galant Home Inspection. Without question he had our best interest at heart.
I am beyond happy to have found Gallant Home Inspection. The owner, Micheal, answered my email promptly and politely, and was able to accommodate my extremely short timeframe for an inspection at a reasonable cost.
He thoroughly and meticulously answered my questions, showed my husband and I potential issues, and we had an on-site report before we left the house. Due to his diligence, my family avoided purchasing a home with otherwise unknown water damage and potential foundation issues. We had a final report before 7pm same day.
When we found another property, I immediately contacted him to perform a pre-inspection to strengthen our offer. Again, he was thorough, meticulous, polite and professional. Due to his report, my family is confident in the safety of the house. I feel like we were more than a customer to him and that he was truly looking out for us as a family.
I recommend Gallant to anyone needing an inspection.
Gallant Home Inspections is my go to company. I would truly use Michael for my personal purchases. He's very thoughtful and cares about everyone who hired him. It's not just an inspection, it's a relationship. He has contracting experience and is familiar of all homes, and thoroughly talks clients through any concerns he has. They leave knowledgeable and ready to take care of their future home.
