Zach did an amazing job with our inspection. He was punctual, efficient, thorough, and very personable. When asked, he helped give me guidance on some of the HVAC locations for future planned home improvements, and he explained the details of the inspection in a very clear and concise way once he was complete. All around he was awesome and we will be referring him and requesting him again in the future! Thank you Zach!

It has been so easy to work with ACE Preferred Inspections. They were quick to schedule. Zach our inspector arrived on time (actually a little early) and was thorough with his inspection. The report was available right afterwards and provided important insights and a good checklist for moving forward. So glad my neighbor recommended them.

Zach was awesome with our home inspection. My seven month old decided to go number two, I check my diaper bag and I notice I’m out of diapers…! Luckily Zach had the perfect size diaper for my little one in his truck, AMAZING. He was thorough, informative and completed the inspection in a timely manner. ❤️💪🏻 Top notch employee and super nice. Give this man A FAT RAISE.

Our home inspection went better than great. Would recommend ACE. Our inspector, Zach, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Explained his inspection to us onsite. We had forgotten diapers for our 7 month old and Zach even had some spares in his work vehicle he gave us. Great quality service; didn't feel like just a quick customer or just another house to knock out.
Jeffrey was xtremely professional … gave us the “good” news and had the report ready the next day … So greatly appreciated !

I had Zach Donaldson inspect my home, and let me tell you he is the MAN! Professional and knowledgeable, he graced throughout the house checking each system and part the same way a doctor would review a person at their physical. Zach’s a good house doctor. My house isn’t perfect, he knows that and I know that, but he didn’t lie to me and say everything looks great. He let me know where I can make small improvements/ changes in my home that will benefit the homes overall lifespan.Zach also likes to have a good time. He told me about a saint Patricks day parade that he would be in the next day. I couldn’t make it but I wanted to - I bet he looked good in green though, which is another thing he has in common with my house (I want to paint the kitchen cabinets green).

I hired Ace Preferred Inspections to conduct a pre-drywall inspection of our new home that is under construction. I was unable to attend since I live 9 hours from the new home site.Zach Donaldson performed the inspection and then spent 45 minutes reviewing the full report by telephone. I asked many questions and Zach patiently and expertly answered all of my questions. There are some issues that I will work with the construction manager to resolve. Many of these I would never have found if I had made ths inspection myself.Thanks Zach.
They did a very thorough job. On time, checked EVERYTHING and delivered the complete report very quickly. We were very pleased.

Ace Preferred Inspections provides great service and thorough inspections that put my clients at ease with making a decision about a home purchase or by having a pre-inspection to avoid surprises when selling their home. Ace is one of the few companies that has a structural engineer on staff and that gives great comfort if my Clients need to discuss a particular issue related to the structure. I appreciate Ace Preferred Inspections desire to provide comprehensive service and packages for all Client needs.

Pat Turner did two Home Inspections for my Clients yesterday. As always , Pat was professional, thorough. and timely with his report. One of the Inspections, had the new Owner present and during the Inspection, Pat informed him what he was doing and why. At the end of the Home inspection, Pat took the time to explain areas of concern as well as answer any questions. My Client has an Engineering background and was impressed by both the completeness of the Inspection and Pat’s knowledge. Thank you for doing a great job.Dave Collins

I was in a pinch to have a structural engineer inspect at a home a couple of days before a closing. Jeffrey was able to fit me in on short notice so my closing wasn’t delayed. Thanks Jeffrey.

The homebuying process is complicated, and people often told me that an inspection was unnecessary. Well, those people are wrong and I couldn't be more happy with ACE. Scott Burns was our inspector and his incredibly thorough inspection led us to asking for crucial repairs from the seller of the house we love. He came out again after repairs had been done to see the quality of the work under CL-100 requirements. The reinspection for the CL-100 was free and Scott was again incredibly thorough and broke things down where I could understand everything without question. Not only was Scott professional, but he went above and beyond for us without being asked. The contractor was going to have someone sent out to write up the cleared CL-100 few days after we had the reinspection, but Scott went ahead and just wrote it up for us so we wouldn't have to wait again! Every friend and family member I have who is buying a house will hear about Scott and ACE Preferred Inspections for as long as I have friends and family buying houses in their service area(s).I can't thank you guys enough, but thank you again!
