Hi Ken! Here s my testimonial - feel free to edit: When I walked up the deck stairs, I was experiencing love at first site. The view of the lake was gorgeous. When Ken first walked up the deck stairs, his experience was quite different. He noticed that the first step was dangerous and not the proper measurements for the human step. I was blinded by the light that sparkled off the lake. I couldn t see that the poorly installed insulation in the A-Frame roof had cooked the wood. I couldn t see poorly installed fixtures and exposed wires. It goes on and on from there. Ken truly saved me from making a huge mistake. I was hearing the morning birds in my ears, not the tens of thousands of dollars that would only be the beginning in repairs and renovations. Phew! I thank my lucky stars that Ken is reputable and honest in his daily work. He doesn t just go through the motions of inspection but combs through the crawl space, wires, plumbing, fixtures, attic, and insulation, everything interior and exterior but also gives you detailed report of his findings. And believe me, if it is going to be an aggravation, dangerous or costly repair to the potential home owner, you want Ken there to point it out to you and help you understand the magnitude of the problem. Now on the flip side: You know Ken works for you. So when he gives you a clean bill of health on the house, it means that you have truly found home sweet home! Happy house hunting!

Hey Ken, Congratulations on completing your video. I think it's a terrific idea and I hope you make lots of money and can retire soon. ( I can hope for you anyways.) I've had to put my house hunting on a back burner due to not knowing if I'm losing my job, etc. If I don't move though, I am going to refinance and fix my place up. You were so right about getting people to come out and give me prices. What a nightmare. I wish you all the best with your new product, I predict it will be a big seller. Everyone should have one, even if you're not moving, just to help you keep your house in shape. Good luck. Debbie High Durham, NC. --TBK Inspections web-site
Kenneth, Thanks for your follow-up to my questions, I truly appreciate your time and very quick response. I actually purchased your inspection video from amazon.com back in February of this year, positive feedback was also left for your account. The fact that you took the time to answer my email so quickly shows your good character. I actually just completed another positive review of your video on amazon.com as it is well deserved (go check it out). Again, I just want to say that I appreciate your help and information; your advice will definitely help me to be a better, more informed home inspector. Best Regards, Kal --TBK Inspections web-site
