Chris Nelson did a very thorough inspection of our property we bought. His attention to detail was amazing and exceeded my expectations. He pointed out small problems (leaking shower in one bathroom / small holes in the caulking around the window trim), as well as pointing out a serious venting issue with the furnace exhaust. In addition to pointing out the problems, he showed me the good areas of the house where the builder went the extra mile.
Chris walked me through the whole house at the end of the inspection as well as sending an organized, thorough, detailed report with photographs and recommended yearly maintenance.

Chris did an inspection on a home we are buying. Chris did an excellent job! Chris was on site early and quickly got to work. He was very meticulous! He paid attention to every little detail and found out everything about the house inside and out. Chris doesn't only look at the big important issues, but at very small issues as well. When he presented his report to us, I was amazed at the level of detail and inspecting he conducted. Chris was also very friendly and open, he answered any questions I had and gave us a lot of tips and tricks. After the inspection, Chris had an official report emailed to us the same day. The report covered absolutely everything you could think of plus some. The report was very nicely put together with appropriate sections and lots of pictures. 5/5 I would highly recommend Chris for your next home inspection!

I cannot say enough how amazing Chris from Blue Roof is. Our Realtor referred him when we needed an inspection during a home purchase and we are so grateful. Something that matters to me is that vendors I work with be willing and available to teach as they provide a service.

My husband wasn't able to be at the inspection with me so I wanted to make sure I understood exactly what was happening and ask all of my questions (which there were many). Chris walked me through every question, detail, photograph, and area, while teaching me about his process, what he saw/looked for, and what it could mean.

He was so professional and his customer service really set the bar above and beyond what I hoped for. We will 100% rely on Chris and Blue Roof for any inspections we may need going forward.

What we got with our purchase:
- Roughly two-four hours to inspect the home and discuss (this can vary based on the property, I think)
- A thorough and detailed report with photographs (digital). It included the level of significance for any work recommended, as well
- Awesome service
- The report came before we went to bed, so same-day turn around
- We added on Radon, that test takes 2-3 days so we got that report later
- The feeling of trust in the inspection, it's a big deal to buy a house - we wanted to be prepared and know what true shape the home was in

Thank you so much Chris!

Chris was awesome in explaining things simply and thoroughly. He was also very clean and professional. Would definitely recommend his service to anyone.

Chris is either the best home inspector in the Northwest, or else is tied with someone else.
