Here's A Few From Our Testimonials Page:

"Our inspection with Ben was very thorough and informative. He was easy to talk to and clearly knowledgeable. I consider myself an informed person with regards to home construction and yet I can say his inspection was worth every penny. I learned things by listening to him. His viewpoint and advice with regards to prospective future repairs/improvements was extremely valuable. The resulting report was comprehensive and received in a timely manner. I would use UPCIS again without any hesitation." ~Norm Siren, Iron Mountain, MI

"Ben was very professional in his ability to both recognize potential areas to address in our home and communicate that in a way that lacked any ambiguity.  His evaluation of our home carried an expertise that shows not only his competence as a licensed inspector, but also as someone who knows how to make many of the repairs.  We weren't left with any questions." Ryan Flunker, Iron Mountain, MI

"Ben's inspection of the home was not only thorough, it was very educational. I learned more in those 2 hours than I've learned for a long time! I am glad he advises his customers to come along on the inspection. He was very correct in saying that the up close and personal experience is way better, though it probably takes more of his time. His friendly but professional demeanor is perfect for the job. Well worth every penny." ~Colleen Szabo, Iron River, MI

"Ben, Thanks. We've done a number of these in the area over the past few years for businesses, homes, and investment properties. Your inspection was the most detailed and professional. And was worth the few extra dollars vs competitors, I'm glad you had time in your schedule as that is why I called." ~Commercial Inspection, Matt Hieshetter, Manistique, MI.
