A friendly team who is certainly knowledgeable in their craft. They wrote a well detailed report, along with photos. They are not cheap, but they are worth every penny! I definitely did not question the value that they brought to the table! Thank You, Trevor, Steve, Jessica and the other inspector (so sorry to not remember his name) for your work!

Trevor and Steve came out to do an inspection and sewer scope for us and did a phenomenal job! They were even able to schedule us next day. They explained everything well and answered all of my questions as we walked through the home. The report and video that we received was - by far - the most detailed and helpful inspection report we’ve ever seen. Truly above and beyond!!

We were working on purchasing a home and sellers didn't have a copy of their structural engineer report, so I found these awesome gentlemen. They were honest, helpful, informative, flexible, and was able to come out the next day, which worked great with our time constraints from closing. They were thorough, efficient and very communicative! Great job guys!

SGA is my new go-to home inspection company! They were professional, incredibly knowledgeable, and really thorough. Shamus and Trevor were able to answer each of my questions and made sure to explain their key findings on the inspection day. They provided a detailed written report with extensive photos the next day that was easy to read and categorized based on the severity of issues they identified so we had the right information to make our decision to purchase or not.

Steve, Trevor, and Shamus are definitely at the top of the game. We arrived on site a bit early only to find them already on top of the roof and inspecting the exterior of the home. Absolutely no time wasted with these group of guys. Thorough, professional, and experts in the field are just a few ways to describe their work. No detail in the home was left untouched. They made sure we understood the process they took and magnitude of the suggestions they provided. We walked away feeling like we knew the home better than the hands that built it. I appreciated that they not only gave their perspective, but referenced it against designs and specs. I highly recommend this group of guys to anyone who wants to know the in and outs of any property before... making the big decision. Hats off to you guys and keep up the great work!read more

Great team at SGA! They were willing to come out on short notice to inspect a property we were looking at with an uncooperative Seller's agent who gave us a minimal time to inspect the property. SGA returned a thorough inspection and all the members of the inspection team were easily approachable and pointed items out as they were seeing them as well as suggesting reasonable solutions for them. Add to that they are one of the few companies who also will do well inspections and water analysis making them an answer to our prayers. Top Notch!

After everything was done, the report I was given was very detailed yet simple to digest. I have seen similar reports through friends and family in the area from competitors that could seemed much less intuitive or even downright confusing.

I have used SGA twice in the last few months as I shopped for my first home to buy. Although I loved the cute curb appeal and updated remodel of the interior of House #1, they helped me realize it was more than I was ready to tackle. In June, they helped me confirm the place I decided to buy was right for me.Their thorough inspection was so clear during the 90 minutes, pointing out issues and answering any questions I had. Due to their recommendation, we did an additional crawlspace inspection from an expert who confirmed Trevor's estimate of cost to fix everything. We were then able to ask the seller to pay more towards closing costs.I love how detailed and organized the written report was with photos for everything and links to helpful... articles to explain certain items. The color coded, symbols made it easy to see at a quick glance a summary of everything and prioritize projects. As a renter knowing very little about systems and the interiors of a house, I learned so much.If you want to be sure you are making the right decision in buying your next house, definitely go with SGA. So thankful my real estate agent recommended them.read more

A follow up trip was made out by a third individual (I believe Steve) to confirm and double check something they were unable to check into at the initial inspection. They additionally got a report out the same day of the inspection. Very quick, efficient, skillful and thorough individuals from this company. They knew what to look for and delved in much deeper than I originally anticipated in such a short time. Additionally They gave us extra helpful tips and advice for after move in that is out of the scope of their inspection.Thank you all for assisting us and helping us understand what to expect.

I highly recommend SGA Inspections. Money well spent. These folks are great. They will take the time to explain the issues to the buyer/seller so they can easily understand. They conduct a comprehensive inspection. One of the many things I like is how these segregate the problems that they identify. From fix this now to it can wait. This make it so much easier to develop a plan and prioritize the fixes that need to be done. Very professional yet they make you feel comfortable. Again, great job SGA. Thank you so much, I feel so much, more comfortable buying this home.

First off, there were 3 people on site. It was about 2 acres, a large garage and house. They did a VERY EXTENSIVE check over EVERYTHING, I mean pictures for days! The amount I paid, which was ALOT, but was WELL worth it. Well was also intended as a pun because there is a well on site. I kept telling everyone I talked to that this was money well spent. So I am very happy.They send you a link, with very detailed information on what they found. Everything is in it's own order, house, roof, garage, well, sewer/septic, and then you are able to click on links to other information provided regarding what they found wrong or if they found nothing wrong and their pictures. And also solutions on the issues. This company receives an A+ Thank you... thank you!These gentlemen were super nice, super professional and really showed they cared for their work. Trevor, Shamus and I'm hoping it was Steven (sorry if I'm wrong), you guys were the BEST! Thanks again.Crossing my fingers, everything turns out for the best now.read more

The school is a scam. I was extremely disappointed and everyone I took class with expressed the same feelings. You do NOT get your license and you do NOT get field training. They took us to another students house for an hour, nobody learned much, and they claimed it to be the field training. The rest of the class is just reading the book and taking tests. I went in with a lot of false hopes from the program. It's also not a gig you can go get started right away. You have to start your own business. Which I didn't know before I started. I wanted to work under someone for a little while to gain the knowledge and experience before starting my own business, but that's not how it works in this trade. As a single parent with little money, I hugely... regret using my savings for this school. It was a huge disappointment and nothing you think it is going to be.read more

After deciding which school I will attend when pursuing my new career in home inspection I’m glad I chose SGA Inspection. Steven and Trevor are very helpful and knowledgeable in the field. In the three weeks of school they throw a lot at you and it can seem overwhelming but they are always there to answer your questions and help you out as much as possible. They are there not only to help you pass the exam but also help you succeed in your new career. I’m very grateful to have attended SGA Inspection school and highly recommend utilizing them as well if you want to pursue a career in home inspection.

The instruction that was provided was one of the best training classes I have ever attended, the use of multiple sources for the information was above and beyond what was needed or expected. The Instruction from KNOWLEDGEABLE working inspectors was an invaluable resource for me. When i did struggle they were very helpful and understanding. I personally learned as much from the experiences of the instructors as I did from the courseware provided. I would hardily would recommend to everyone without reservation. Money well spent.

This school was absolutely phenomenal. Steve has an immense knowledge of the home building industry from decades of experience, and Trevor's business and professional mindset complement perfectly. Between the two of them, they answered my questions with detail and patience, and went well above and beyond what a HI school is required to provide. The cost of an HI class is no joke, and Steve and Trevor really put effort in to make it worth the student's while. Can't say enough here, I am fortunate to have encountered SGA.

I am so glad I decided to enroll at SGA Inspection. I did as much research as I could find to find the right school for me.Steve Abbott and Trevor are a great team for great instruction. Steve has an extensive General contractors experience that allow him to teach us the backgrounds on many regulations of building.Trevor has great business background that helps us to use this new information to organize it and utilize it with business sense.What I really enjoyed is visiting trainers and inspectors who come in as teachers themselves but also successful practicing inspectors who take time out of their own busy schedule to help teach us to understand the latest information and what they do that make them successful.If you are looking for the... right school with the right instructor who have the right connections to board members, trainers, mentors then this is the right school for you!Hope this helps you decide where to enroll.read more

I did my research and chose these guys after carefully considering my options and now, after nearly complete their course, I am happy with my decision. These are some of the benefits you will receive from attending their program.1) they submerse you in the material you need to know to pass the exam;2) they’re practitioners that teach using real-world experience; and lastly,3) they prepare you for the day-to-day, operations side of the business.The primary teacher, Steve, has decades of experience in construction and brings that experience into teaching the material. The guy is an encyclopedia of information. He is very good at relating the material you are learning to real world situations, which mades difficult to understand subject much e... asier. The other teacher, Trevor, came into Home Inspecting without a construction background; however, with nearly 1,000 inspections under his belt, Trevor brings a necessary element to the program. He’s really good a simplifying the material in an easy-to-understand way and teaching the practical side of the business. My favorite Trevor saying, “if it doesn’t look right it probably isn’t.”If you are on the fence, I suggest giving them a call and asking them questions. They are super professional, and it’s easy to get along with them.On a side note, STUDY the material they assign prior to class. You're required to know an insane amount of material to pass the State exam.read more

As an individual switching careers mid-life whom all the subject material seemed daunting, Steve and Trevor provided an excellent learning experience. The course was broken down into digestable parts by course topic which felt doable to me even though I am green. I also appreciate the various ancillary subject matter experts who volunteered thier time and shared thier experience. One recently graduated business owner who spoke was particularly helpful and was relatable. I highly recommend this course and am excited about my future career!

You can receive inspection training in lots of different places and ways, what sets SGA above and apart is the immense amount of shared experience and knowledge between Steve and Trevor who add value to their training well above and beyond what you need simply to pass the licensing exam. These two actively work each day of class to help train ever better inspectors, and have been quite successful in doing so. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to start a career in home inspection!

After 30 years in the construction business, I decided I wanted to start going in a different direction. After much research I decided on Washington Home Inspector Training. I am so glad I did. Steve and Trevor do an incredible job of relaying the information needed to not just pass the test, but to have a strong foundation to build the business. The field training was thorough and detailed. Making the decision to become an inspector takes a commitment, Steve and Trevor respect that. I would highly recommend their course to anyone considering becoming an Inspector.

SGA Inspection Services & Training LLC. is very professional in every aspect. From day one as a student I have been learning at a fast pace. Classroom time is a good balance of personal study, and Instructor group training. Small class sizes (5-8 students) contributes to personal one on one time with either Instructor. The balance of Steves' long time exper (over 30 years in the construction industry), mixed with Trevors' youthful enthusiasm & technical savviness, brings an overall thoroughness that cannot be beat.

SGAInspections was a fantastic find. Steve & Trevor do a tremendous job at inundating the student in all the info needed to become a great home inspector. Included in the coarse is the exposure to the software products used by inspectors as well. Teaching each student the process of going out to the home site, executing the inspection and then finishing the report for the consumer. They have been a great resource for me as I launch this new venture. Thanks Guys.... Mike

After researching several companies online that provide home Inspection training, including phone conversations with several people who have attended the other vendors for training, it was obvious SGA was the right choice. Steve and Trevor have developed a first class training experience. From the very first inquiry about the training to the completion of the class, there has been no doubt in my mind I made the right choice. SGA training is set up in an actual classroom not some random rented motel room. SGA instructors are present every minute of your training to assist you. If you are looking to start a buisness or are just thinking about it, I have no doubt after talking to Steve or Trevor you will be confident they are ready to assist you with... building your future as an Certified Licensed Home Inspectorread more
