Our highly trained inspectors are state licensed in Connecticut and Massachusetts and certified by respected inspection organizations such as ASHI and NACHI.  We are very proud of our owner and fearless leader David who has been recognized as a top inspection trainer in the country!  His extensive experience and training have heightened our service quality and we bring that expertise to every inspection that we complete.

What You Can Do During The Inspection

We encourage our customers to join our home inspectors during the inspection process. Our inspections typically last anywhere from 3-4  hours while our inspector examines every accessible nook and cranny of the home.  Feel free to ask any questions you have during the inspection, and make sure you wear protective clothing as you follow our inspector throughout the examination. Once the inspection is complete, you will receive a detailed, yet easily understandable computer-generated report, complete with digital photos. 

We will also include recommendations for remedies of any issues and the associated projected costs, so you can understand potential expenses before you make a buying decision.  In addition to a comprehensive inspection report, you’ll also receive a copy of our Closing Walk Though Check List and exclusive Home Owner’s Guide.

I would recommend Sherwood Inspection Services over and over again. Sherwood inspection services made the whole process easy from scheduling the appointment to getting us the appointment and report in a timely manners. We went into the home inspection knowing nothing about houses and what to expect. Both of our home inspectors made us feel comfortable. They were both very knowledgeable on failed foundation issues. They were able to put technical terms into easy to understand layman language.  He oversaw the whole process from beginning to the end including an interpretation of the lab results. We don't know where we would be without them. Thanks Sherwood Inspection Services!!!
