"Our real estate broker suggested Element Home Inspection, so we contacted Rich by email to schedule our home inspection. After his inspection, we were walked around the property and shown (where possible) the major defects that he found. He encouraged us to ask any additional questions we had, which we did. He also gave us information on how to fix any defects that were found.  The report was incredibly detailed with photos to accompany each part of the house that was noted. Here, as with our in-person report findings, things were stated in a manner easy to understand. Our experience with Element Home Inspection was very professional and insightful. We would highly recommend their services to anyone considering buying a house."  

-Adam and Jill, North Portland


"The report had a great format and was easy to read and understand.  We also appreciate all of the pointers that were given during the inspection." 

-Krish and Ryan, Northeast Portland


"Element is top notch. Rich was recommended to us by our realtor and my wife and I were thoroughly impressed. He inspected every nook and cranny, gave recommendations in a friendly manner (nice an informal rather than formal and business like!), and later did a re-inspect free of charge! He showed that he cared even though the inspection work is his job. An additional advantage is that he is a contractor, so he really knows what he is talking about. Friendliness, honesty, commitment, and fair rates. Element will be my first recommendation to anyone!"

-Steven,  North Portland
