Mark was recommended to me to perform the inspection on a home we were looking to purchase. Mark more than exceeded my expectations. He was prompt, took over an hour to discuss his findings and I was blown away by the materials and report he supplied. I would definitely use him again.

I attended the home inspection for my mother, as she is out of state. Mark & his son were very professional! They took the time to speak to me about everything, answer all of my questions, and even were patient enough with me to allow me to call my mother and see if there were any other questions she had. Mark walked through the whole house with me, giving me pointers and tips for when my mother moves in and on maintenance of the house as it has some features I am unfamiliar with.The book he gives is very detailed and is a fantastic reference. At no time did I feel rushed or as if I was an imposition as my son & I took window measurements while Mark did the inspection. He even offered the use of his tape measure! Wonderful experience all the way around!

I decided to go with Mark based off of the reviews I read on this site, needless to say, I was not disappointed. (I normally don't write reviews, but I had to make an exception, his service was excellent!)

Scheduling the inspection was very quick and I was able to get an appointment with hardly any waiting time.

On inspection day, Mark and his son arrived early to the house and were ready as soon as I showed up. From the beginning, Mark introduced himself and his son and began walking me through the process. They did a great job of finding and explaining issues with the home. Even if they were small insignificant issues, Mark still took the time to discuss them with me. It was a very thorough and detailed inspection, and at no point did it feel rushed.

When the inspection was done, he provided me with a binder that detailed all of the issues with the home that had been found. It had all of the pictures he had been taking throughout the morning, and explained precisely what each issue was. Afterwards he even emailed a copy of the inspection to my realtor.

Mark has been doing this for a long time, and with that, is a wealth of knowledge.

If you are unsure of who to select for a home inspection, do yourself a favor, call Mark right now!! I highly recommend him!

Bottom Line, Mark and his son performed an excellent service, professional and thorough. Mark was very knowledgeable on current code regulations and worked with the builder on our behalf to ensure our home was safe and to standard. I would recommend Mark for any inspection.

Mark and his son were great to work with. They were extremely thorough and went over in detail everything that needed repaired after they had finished their inspection. Would definitely use their services again should the need arise. Mark also put me in touch with a master carpenter to do all of the repairs, and a realtor. Thank you Mark and son!

Mark was highly recommended to us and we're so glad we chose him for our home inspection. We are purchasing a home that was built in the 70's with many add-ons. There's a lot we didn't know about the house. Mark and his son were incredibly thorough and answered all of our questions. They pointed out things we would've never thought to look for. The report we received was very detailed and will be helpful to refer back to anytime we have a question about the house. An overall wonderful experience! Well worth the money!

Mark and his son did a very thorough job. Detailing everything in the final inspection. He was very helpful explaining things while we were at the house during his inspection. We were very happy with the job they did, and would highly recommend them to all.

Mark was so very helpful and thorough; he answered all my questions and educated me on things that I never would have considered. He is very personable and a pleasure to work with. His son was also extremely knowledgeable. I will definitely use Mark from here on out.

I was pleasantly surprised by the detail and comprehensiveness of the inspection that Mr. Rakow performed. The attention to detail that was paid to each and every aspect of the inspection was just amazing. Furthermore, I received a condensed report with the findings of the inspection just a few hours after the inspection was completed. One cannot ask for better service than that!
