Inspect a Home


When a job or request is done, from beginning to end, in a thorough and professional manner (which is a rarity) it makes it difficult to rate them without it sounding over the top. Sherlock Home Inspections is more than a company; it is a real person who has the experience, knowledge and dedication to perform a detailed and accurate inspection. He arrived on time and prepared. We were encouraged to participate in the inspection. Every detail was explained in layman's terms. The report was done on time, as promised. And, he will continue to be available to you for any and all questions, today or five years from now.

Joseph Michalski was knowledgeable, friendly and all around pleasure for two first time home buyers. Joe made my wife and I feel very comfortable with the entire home inspection process. He explained everything he was doing, why, and what problems, when there were any, and gave us tips on how to address them. I would recommend Joe to ANYONE. He was great and I wish him the best of success

Joe was very professional and friendly. He answered all my questions and made recommendations an educated me on things I wanted to know more about. He explained the reasons for repairs in a manner that I could understand and also a bit of history for the type of home I am buying in Port Richmond in Philadelphia. He and his assistant Brett worked well as a team. They both pointed out things that I need to know as a homeowner for keeping up the condition of the house. I highly recommend his services.

Thank you for your professional services today. We were very pleased with how thorough and professional you were.

Joe did a very thorough inspection of the home we looking to purchase. During the walk through he took the time to explain everything to my husband and myself. If he felt something was going to be a concern for us in the near future he was able to tell us within reason how soon that item would need to be addressed and about how much it would cost us. That is very helpful when considering whether or not to purchase a home. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone.

Very fair and thorough inspection. Stress testing of plumbing and the hot water heater were witnessed - something NOT done by a different inspector of our son's million dollar home - and later found plumbing leaks. Will take recommended actions for electrical and fire safety, and greater efficiency of the AC unit.
