Tom was a pleasure to work with during my home inspection. He walked through every aspect of the house from outside to in. He was extremely thorough, stopping to investigate anything that seemed off, and explained how all the main systems of the house should function.
He took many photos and provided a comprehensive report showing all details and maintenance items for future reference. He also turned around the report within a day or two so I didn't lose any time.
He was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I was referred to him by a coworker, but he was so impressive my real estate agent took his info to start using him with her other clients.

Tom was very responsive upon our initial inquiry when scheduling the appointment and with all communication or questions leading up to the date of our inspection. As a first time home buyer, there are certain systems and functions in a home that I was not familiar with but Tom was incredibly educational and thorough with his inspection. He walked me through what he was doing and what exactly he was looking for during the inspection and provided a comprehensive but digestible report for review. He was thoughtful, respectable and very professional. At the end of the inspection, he provided me with a binder that had a manual to reference as a first time home buyer that further explains the importance of regular maintenance with the home that I’m sure will be very handy for years to come. Tom expressed that he is available for further questions and inquiries as a client even after the inspection period. I would highly recommend working with him and Beacon Home Inspections as a first time home buyer. This process can be overwhelming and scary but Tom really helped keep me calm!

Tom was a professional throughout the entire inspection. He checked the home from A-Z and educated me on any concerns that he had with the home regarding safety and the importance of following up with issues with the home that needed immediate attention. It was obvious that Tom is well versed in home inspections and I would not hesitate to use Beacon Fine Home Inspections LLC in the future. 5 stars!

We couldn't have been happier with Tom as a home inspector for our first home purchase. Tom took his time to not only diligently and thoroughly inspect the home, but was incredibly patient and educational the entire way! We learned so much during our inspection, and felt comfortable with our house purchase after Tom's inspection. His report is also incredibly thorough, and his turn around time was unbelievable! Highly highly recommend Tom for your next home inspection. Thank you so much Tom!

Tom was an absolute delight to work with. He was there early, started us off with a brief rundown of how the whole inspection would go (which made us feel comfortable as first-time buyers), and went on to demonstrate the kind of expertise that comes with years of experience and can't be faked. Quick but thorough, direct but pleasant. Highly recommend.

We hired Tom twice! He did an excellent job on our first home inspection & we walked away due to concerns he discovered. He provides a binder with home maintenance tips which is above and beyond. He provided the reports quickly yet thoroughly. You can tell he loves what he does. Would hire again!

Your search is over if you're looking for a stellar home inspector. My inspection process, from start to finish, was incredible and educational. I cannot say enough good things about Beacon's services. Working with true professionals is always good, especially when you're a stressed-out first-time home buyer. Our home inspection report was meticulously detailed and even impressed my hard-to-impress carpenter father-in-law. The information is also easy to search for keywords and simple to share with contractors, which we utilized a lot. Trust me, book them now!

"I couldn't imagine a more thorough home inspection prior to purchasing a house. Tom is so thorough and so informative that we are using him for a second time within 3 weeks. I used to think it was a waste of money to have a home inspection and then bail prior to purchase due to poor negotiations but the inspection did what it was supposed to do and uncover any and all faults of the property. A huge thanks to Tom for his detailed report (pictures and recommendations included!) and helping us find the most sound and perfect property for us. I recommend him to the fullest extent!"

We are first time home buyers who were nervous and quite uneducated about looking at a home. That being said, we really were looking for a very in depth inspection with a lot of explanation. Tom was awesome. Prompt, professional and thorough. We appreciated how he took the time to patiently answer all of our questions and really made us feel comfortable with our new home. Thanks Tom!!

Sarah Ackley

"You hear about the horror stories with home inspections and the inspectors used. Being a first time home buyer, we wanted to find a inspector that was honest and thorough not trying to pull the wool over our eyes. Even though this is our first inspection that was ever done Tom is the best inspector, period. If you are still reading reviews, save yourself time and just hire him IMMEDIATLY. Not only does he KNOW what he is talking about, but he is patient, friendly and answers all your questions. But most importantly, he does a VERY THOROUGH INSPECTION. He inspected EVERY INCH of the house - tried every window, door, faucet, and fan. He left no stone unturned and frankly, we will never trust another home to another inspector. Tom loves his job and it shows. He has competitive pricing and saved us a bundle!!! Even though we didn't go with the house that he did inspect because of the things that were found during his inspection he is highly recommended, you will not be disappointed."
