As first time home buyers, my fiance’ and I had really no idea what to expect with a home inspection. Lakes Area was recommended to us by a friend and they were incredible. Very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would absolutely recommend them to friends or hire him again in the future.

Lakes Area Home Inspections will provide you with a peace of mind no matter what type of real estate transaction you are about to undertake. A detailed, well documented inspection, is a worthwhile investment in your future when buying any property, new or old.

I've hired Kyle for 2 home inspections in the past year. Both times he was professional, easy to work with, and provided very detailed inspections and easy to follow reports afterwards. Basically, just a good guy doing a good job. 5/5 would recommend.

Kyle and his son did a great job inspecting my home, being honest with me, and explaining everything well and efficiently. He came, got to work right away, and provided the detailed report for us on the spot. I could tell that he is very experienced and knows what he is doing plus he was very friendly. I highly recommend!

We were able to schedule quickly. Kyle was prompt (actually early), very professional, thorough and explained his process and his findings. He was very responsive to my follow-up questions. We would highly recommend Kyle for your inspection needs.
