Shamus inspected our soon-to-be home in a timely and thorough manner. There were a few minor issues he found and we are grateful for his expertise! Our realtor had a hunch about the plumbing issue not getting resolved so she asked him to come out again for a look which he did free of charge. That is going above and beyond and we will soon be happy homeowners once again. Thanks Shamus and team!!

Trevor and Steve are incredibly friendly, helpful, informative and efficient. They allowed us to follow them around while they inspected everything which was very fun and fascinating. The thermal camera (liquid lava) is very neat to see! They had our report to us the next day, impressive considering the amount of information you receive. Very satisfied with their opinion on our first home!

The inspectors saved the sale of our home with their extensive well inspection to prove there were no issues with our well or the water quality. The buyers had hired Top Notch who are not fully qualified to conduct a well test. SGA got us on their schedule quickly and provided necessary tests to show buyers there are no issues with our well. So appreciative of their services. Highly recommend them.

Conveyed honestly expectations and did not hide any details so that the product received was what they promised to delivery. Highly recommend SGA to anyone who needs their services. Will use them again in the future. Thank you Shamus, Trevor and Steve..

SGA was a great choice for our home inspection. We were able to get the inspection scheduled on the timeframe we needed. They were right on time for our appointment and were very friendly and helpful. They explained what we would see in the report before we received it. They were very knowledgeable and thorough. The turn around time to get the inspection report beat our expectations. We don't need home inspections completed very often, but when we need another one, we would use SGA again!

As a first time home buyer, the inspection process can be intimidating. The team at SGA inspection not only walked me though the inspection but explained what they looked for and offered further details while answering my questions along the way. I received a well laid out report of findings with plenty of pictures all within a few days of scheduling the initial inspection, I will continue to use and recommend SGA in the future.

We used SGA inspections for our home inspection and were extremely happy with them. The company was responsive and easy to work with and there were no billing surprises. The team of inspectors they sent out were very thorough and professional. They saved us almost 15k in undisclosed issues, and we were really happy to see that they used camera scopes and thermal imaging during the inspection. We feel very confident moving into this home purchase thanks to their dedication to top-notch service.

We had an exceptional experience with our inspection with SGA. Trevor and Shamus were both very professional, responsive and did everything to make sure we had a very efficient and fast turn around. What I liked best was the time they took prior to inspection, after inspection with follow-up questions and especially during inspection when they took the time to explain and show us what we needed to know. Great job, great team from beginning to end!!!

SGA inspections offered a very professional and timely service; they were there before my partner or I arrived and had already begun inspecting the surrounding property. They educated us every step of the way on what needed fixing on a scale from minor to major and showed us why. For example, in one instance they showed us staining of the ceiling in the attic and elucidated what it could mean, but also showed us evidence to the contrary. They were very educational and helpful throughout the inspection.After the inspection was over, at the start of the next day they sent us an inspection report. We were able to use that report to negotiate what needs to be fixed in the house, or what needs to be addressed. I thank them for their quality... reports, as they highlighted many things that my partner or I, and our agent, overlooked. They are detailed in their inspection and very observant.I highly recommend them. They were very quick but thorough, and very educational to us as first time homebuyers. Overall, I will definitely utilize their services in the future.WBread more

They not only took time to talk to us, but they also spent time to ensure we were well educated in what they were seeing and evaluating. I have seen very few services in any industry that I would rank as high as SGA. They are in a class of their own. Thanks guys!

Shamus and Trevor inspected a house that my fiance and I were looking forward to buying. They were prompt, timely and very knowledgeable. They showed my fiance and I the issues that they found with the house and offered to discount our next home inspection after they found several major issues with the house we were looking at. Furthermore, they were in the process of inspecting the house well before the time that was set to meet us, which may be professional courtesy, but I found to be helpful. Overall, a great experience.

We had the pleasure of working with SGA Inspection Inc on the initial pre-inspection of our prospective home, and a return Well inspection after closing. I am so glad they were the first company I called, being new to the area and not having any local recs. In this market, there is almost nothing fun about buying a home, but SGA made the inspection experience enjoyable, educational, and efficient. They brought the right mix of friendly and professional. Their initial review of the home made us confident in moving forward; I felt reassured by their knowledgeable approach to the work, teamwork style, and honest opinions and recommendations. The teamwork approach gives the benefit of more efficient timing, and also multiple sound opinions in one... session, without having to call anyone else for additional input - all at a reasonable cost. They were very responsive and communicative throughout scheduling, (they actually answer the phone when you call/text!), were readily available for last minute appointments, (they even fit us in on a holiday), and seemed genuinely happy to show up and do the work. I would certainly recommend them for anyone looking for an inspection team, and would happily work with them again myself for any future home adventures. Call these guys, you won't regret it!read more

SGA inspection was recommended by our realtor. Seller prevented the inspection prior to closing and after Trevor completed the inspection I now know why. We requested the inspection after the closing. I didn’t want any surprises so the inspection was scheduled the following week. I was still in Hawaii so the meet and greet was handled by my housemate. Trevor showed up on time and began a very thorough job of checking out our house. He went through way more than I was expecting and answered every question that I had. This man was on top, under, through and around every part of the house. He found issues that needed immediate attention, items that would need to be addressed and normal maintenance jobs that we would have to get to when we had the time.... Items ranged from life threatening to basic upkeep that every house will need. Trevor was easy to work with and very knowledgeable regarding all parts of the house. His recommendations were very helpful enabling us to make this house our home. We now have a safe home and a prioritized list of items to take care of. When the report came back I was thoroughly surprised at how much information was included and how easy it was to understand. Pictures that were included left no questions as to what the issues were or where they were located. Overall the inspection was well worth the cost! The value is way beyond the price. Everything was beyond my expectation’s and I am very happy with SGA Inspection. Job well done! Thank y’all for your assistance. Your services are much appreciated.

They are very thorough with the inspection and saved us nearly $50,000 in potential repairs and were able to escape with only their modest fees. Just used their services again last week and they continue to do it all, even on short notice. Will ask to use them again if we are able to get it written into the real estate contract!

Very knowledgeable, prompt, professional, and reasonable. We were able to schedule an inspection in less than 24 hours. Trevor and his team did two inspections for us. The first one showed some major issues and as first time home buyers Trevor explained everything and made it very easy to understand. The reports for both inspections were incredibly thorough and will be a big asset while we plan to maintain our new home. The team really helped us make informed decisions during our first home buying experience and even provided recommendations on how to modify/repair anything that may need to be addressed when we move in. I’d recommend them to anyone.

I'm a person who gets worried about everything, especially when it comes to things related to homeownership, that's why I'm happy I found SGA Inspection! I'm in the process of selling my home and they did a very thorough home inspection! They provided pictures of issues, descriptions of problems, and some guidance for me. I don't know anything about houses... I mean, I probably should since I own one... But they exhibited having a huge wealth of knowledge about what they're inspecting that I feel comfortable with their report. Additionally, they made it possible for me to see the report and pay for the inspection online, it was really convenient! Even though I used this inspection service for a pre-selling inspection, I would highly recommend them... for pre-purchase inspections.I'm in the process of buying a home outside of Washington, otherwise I'd ask them to inspect next house. I'm hoping the inspector I get for my new house is as good as these guys.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... easier. 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

I recently attended Washington Home Inspector Training and was thoroughly impressed from start to finish. WHIT's facility was comfortable and I was impressed by use of multimedia technology to present course material. Syllabus was in line with national home inspector standards and tailored to passing the WA state inspector test. They nicely balanced coursework and practical inspection content. I enjoyed the small class size that allowed for more than adequate personal attention.I have no reservations about recommending Washington Home Inspector Training's course to any prospective student. Without attending this course I highly doubt I would have been as prepared to successfully pass the state exam let alone feel as confident to start my own... inspecting business.read more

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
