Beyond pleased with the work Garnet & Grey did for our home inspection. Buying a 50 year old home can be a little overwhelming when it comes time for the inspection. Not only did Judson provide a thorough report, he took the time to make sure we understood everything within it. He was professional and precise, with the warm demeanor of an old friend. Looking forward to using Garnet & Grey for our future renovations.

I have been an architect for 35 years. I selected Judson for my home inspection. It was very clear that he understands building science. His report was thorough, accurate, and professional. I highly recommend.

Fantastic service at Garnet and Grey! Their attention to detail and dedication to my home inspection was much more than anticipated. I will definitely use them again. When you have a team that dedicates themselves to their work you get great results!

Judson was absolutely fantastic to work with on the inspection of a home we were looking to purchase. He scheduled us quickly and was very prompt which was important as we were operating under a short due diligence period. Thorough may be an understatement as Judson pointed out many issues that I was unaware of and that were not represented properly by the seller. He also recommended testing on some components of the home even though disclosures noted there was nothing hazardous contained within and in fact the testing came back positive for such a substance. The level of professionalism and attention to detail is second to none and due to the findings by Judson which were ill represented we were able to keep from making a terrible mistake that would have cost me thousands of dollars. Hiring Judson and Garnet & Grey was the best money I’ve ever spent on anything quite frankly. I would highly recommend Judson to anyone looking to purchase a home and wanting to know that what they are buying is accurately represented and safe for their family. Thanks again Judson!
