Barry’s Report Was Extremely Helpful

Barry was able to spend an hour on the phone with us walking us through the whole report and making comments/recommendations - this was extremely helpful since we could not be present for his inspection.

We are very happy with the service.

We had the good fortune to have Covered Bridge

We had the good fortune to have Covered Bridge work with us on two recent pre-purchase home inspections and could not have been more pleased. They were available quickly, and both inspectors with whom we worked provided thorough evaluations and explained their findings in easy to understand terms. Their reports were comprehensive and included software that made the process of communicating with sellers easy. I would absolutely recommend them to all my friends and will definitely use them again should the need arise. Thank you Covered Bridge!

Great Team Effort and Another Happy Client!

The entire process of working with the Covered Bridge team was wonderful. The response time for scheduling was very speedy.  AJ did a wonderful job at the inspection and was great to work with.  The report we received was thorough. We’ll definitely be recommending this company to everyone!

Chicky’s inspection completely blew me away

Chicky’s inspection completely blew me away. He was so thorough and patient with me as a first-time home buyer, not to mention incredibly friendly. I attended the inspection with a family member who said it was the most thorough inspection they’d ever seen in their experience buying homes. Everything was made super clear to me and the report included terrifically helpful documentation (photos) and details. Thank you Chicky and thank you Covered Bridge!!!!!

Unfalteringly helpful, patient and informative AJ

Thank you for the follow up.  I just can't say enough positive things about my experience with your outfit.  Every aspect of the process was professional and kind.  AJ  Houlne was the inspector who was unfalteringly helpful, patient, and informative.  He even included links to manuals for some of the home equipment.  I now have this report that is my "to do" list for my new home, complete with pictures.

Thanks for your thorough inspection

Thanks for your thorough inspection of the property.  None of the professionals who came in to repair the things we couldn’t do ourselves found anything that you missed so we feel we got a good inspection from you.  We would recommend you to anyone who asked us who we used.

Thanks for the follow up!

Thanks for the follow-up! And thanks to Chicky for the thorough inspection and documentation. We had an opportunity to chat about the report results earlier this week. No outstanding questions at this point, but I'll be sure to reach back out if necessary. With that, thank you for the amazing service! From the scheduling to the thoroughness of the report and making yourselves available for questions, your company has been outstanding. I'll be sure to refer you if I get the opportunity to do so.

Another excellent review!

I was referred to Covered Bridge by our real estate agent.  We live out of state and had to conduct everything with Covid guidelines.  Covered Bridge was excellent and is very thorough!  Barry took the time on a Saturday night to go over the inspection report with me so we could meet our deadlines. Very thorough and absolutely A+ rated customer service.  I would recommend them to anybody who is looking for somebody they can trust and then communicate well to the customer.  Especially when you are five hours away!!

Thorough and unhurried Home Inspection

We were very pleased with Barry's careful inspection.  He was admirably thorough and unhurried, despite the relatively awkward situation of having the listing agent present, along with myself and our agent.  He didn't skip over a single bit of the house, and provided honest, helpful feedback and advice throughout.

The report is already proving useful to us as we try to close the sale.  If we do get to move into the house, it will be our laundry list for our first couple of years of weekend projects!

Thanks very much,

Owner / buyer pleased with Home Inspection

Hi All,

we did receive the report and we were pleasantly surprised by detail information it contained along with pictures and suggestions, not to mention the abundance of educational links.

The result of the inspection has been used by the owner to address the immediate needs, and it will be used by the future owner as a guide to maintenance.

Unfortunately we could not be at the house to witness the inspection, however the owner was there, and she was very pleased with the professionalism and the attention to details displayed by the inspector (Barry Sykes).

Thanks again for your help

Gianpiero & Victoria

PS.: Do you inspect also in Chittenden County?
