A Few Comments About Our Services

"I thought the inspection was thorough and informative as it was being conducted, but the written report - well, that far exceeded my expectations.  I'll be working from it for months - maybe years to come!  P.S. The seller's agent remarked during the inspection, "He's a very good inspector.  I'll keep his card.""

                Mary N., Vancouver

"Competent, thorough, professional - What more could we ask for?  Especially impressed by thorough report enhanced by pictures - better than any other inspection report we've reviewed.  Thank you."

                Keith and Tracy H., Salmon Creek

"You always do a great job!"  The client is also a successful real estate agent and selected Barkee Inspection Services to inspect her personal home that she was purchasing.

                Shea S. & Gina D., N Portland

"The inspection was very thorough and comprehensive.  Ours was a new home, just reaching the one-year walk-through with the builder, and Barkee Inspection (Services) brought to our attention the things we would have missed.  I would highly recommend this service to other home owners or home buyers."  This was a New Home Warranty Inspection.
