Tom was excellent, explaining in detail each aspect of house inspection. The best part was how to take long term care of the property. - Hanee Thaor

Shopping for a home is a stressful process. One thing that made me rest easy was knowing Tom Scannell from Hawkeye Home Inspections was there to make sure we knew what we were getting ourselves into before moving forward with the purchase of a home -- the biggest investment of our lives. My husband and I thought we had found the house of our dreams until Tom came in and found what TWO OTHER home inspectors had missed before him -- knob and tube electricity still left over from the early 1900s! This is something dangerous that the current owners didn't even know about! His diligence so far surpassed our expectations. He even discovered that a nearby garbage sorting facility was smelly in the summertime (we saw the house in October) and that the facility sprayed "fruit smells" in the air to mask it. Gross! This is something as first-time home buyers we would have never known or even thought to ask. We ended up passing on this home and moving on to another. The next home he inspected came out with far fewer issues, and we can't wait to move in! We never could have done it without Tom. He goes above and beyond for his company and his customers. He made me feel absolutely sure that we were making the right decision for our family. He won't leave the premises without making you feel at ease about everything. I couldn't recommend him more. Thank you, Tom! -  Casey Mann

Would highly recommend. Professional and courteous all around - a pleasure to work with. The team in the office made all of the administrative work a breeze. Then, our home inspector, Tom, was incredibly thorough and accommodating. We feel very confident that the inspection was solid and no corners cut. - Max Guerrieri
