BHI did a fantastic job providing chimney sweep services. I saw on one of their social media accounts they started Providing chimney sweep services, in addition to their inspection services. Within a few moments after reaching out, Tyler and his team made contact to set up an appointment, and provided a great service on the day of the job. Reach out to Tyler with BHI for any inspection needs you may have.

Tyler did an amazing job with my home inspection! From polite and professional down to explaining things in ways I could actually understand. After contact, he did the inspection within 24 hours notice even on a Sunday afternoon and had the results back to me the following day! I would absolutely recommend Tyler to anyone buying a home or needing an inspection done. The report was neat and easy to navigate. He listed every category and was thorough in his report. It now gives me a list of everything I need done from top priority to least. Thank you so much Tyler!

Tyler completed my home inspection for the purchase of my 1st home. His availability was flexible & he showed up ahead of schedule. He walked me through the different issues that may need to be addressed and gave me the level of importance of each. He provided me with a quick run down of how I could do some of the fixes myself. He answered all of my questions without hesitation. He is very knowledgeable & thorough. I will be sure to recommend him to future home buyers!

Professionalism, courtesy, expertise...these are just a few of the words I would use to describe Briarwood Home Inspections. In the nightmare process of buying a home Tyler gave me confidence in my new investment as well as confidence in myself to spot not just the defects but the assets of a house as well. I would recommend them to anyone looking for more than just a "yes-man" that just wants to lead you to the sale.

Briarwood was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Tyler was very responsive. He was understanding of the tight timeframe we were on. He showed up as promised and did a thorough job. I've had multiple home inspections before and I could tell Tyler was the type of person who pays extra attention to detail and goes that extra mile. He left me feeling very reassured and informed about the property I was purchasing. I'll definitely be calling these guys for my next purchase as well. Thanks again!

Not only did his timing ease my mind in this stressful process, he did a phenomenal job explaining the results of his evaluation and helping me understand the state of the plumbing of the house I am buying. With his help, I'm comfortable saying that I am able to make an informed decision on the largest purchase of my life! Thank youuu!!!!!

We had Tyler do a quick home inspection on a property; even though he only had about 30 minutes, he got a lot done: even going on the roof, in the attic, etc. He was of course very knowledgeable and we got a lot of info out of that short session; my wife and I were very impressed! We also appreciate that he squeezed us in on such short notice and over the weekend. Thanks!

From the initial communication with Tyler when inquiring of a quote, I knew he/Briarwood was going to be the one! He was professional yet warm and engaging. He was very familiar with neighborhood and newly purchaed home as he grew up in the area. I booked him immediately!Our appointment was at 12pm the following day. I arrived at 11:45am and Tyler was already on the roof! Throughout the inspection, he was providing updates and showing and explaining his findings. My realtor was impressed and will be referring other clients.As a first time homeowner, I appreciated the budget-friendly price, professionalism, thoroughness and transparency.I highly recommend Tyler/Briarwood Home Inspections!

These guys were amazing! I've had a decent amount of inspections done and the turn-around-time and quality has been mediocre at the best of times. The Briarwood team though is definitely who I will be using moving forward. They were on time, professional, and knowledgable. I appreciated the quality of work during the inspection, but also that they took the time to explain anything I had questions on. I also appreciated that they were able to get me a report within 24 hrs since I was on a time crunch. I will definitely use these guys in the future.

Tyler came to my house to do a inspection for a rental license and I couldn't be happier. He was on time, worked around my work schedule, and was very meticulous while still being efficient. Even though the house was just inspected three years ago he took his time to make sure everything was covered. And he was able to do a lead paint inspection as well which was a huge plus not to have to hire two companies. Briarwood will be the first call on my next house.

Tyler was extremely helpful, flexible, and informative. I was able to do a walkthrough with him on short notice, with enough time to get a bid in just before the deadline. In addition to pointing out any possible issues, he provided helpful suggestions on ways to deal with problem areas or things that needed minor improvements. He even helped me take measurements and provided suggestions on how I could mount a TV on the wall without risking the structural integrity. His walkthrough was thorough and efficient and he even let me video the walk-through, so I could engage in a dialogue with him rather than trying to furiously take notes.

Tyler was the home inspector that came out and he was excellent. He gave me a very detailed description of everything that was wrong; even on the minor things. He even showed me pictures for a better understanding. Plus Tyler beat me there by showing up an hour before the scheduled time for the inspection and did like a pre-inspection of the outside of the home. He answered every question I had for him plus he gave me advice on what to look for when buying a home. If you’re looking for a home inspection I would definitely reccommend Briarwood Home Inspections. An excellent company overall.

We were able to show the seller the report and obtain a $1,000 closing credit due to the inspectors recommendations. I would recommend the company for your inspection needs. By far the most pleasant home inspection I've experienced. Money well spent.

I needed an inspection quick and Tyler came out the next day and got it done. He was so detailed and not a thing got by him, which made me feel safer and more confident about buying the home knowing he had assessed everything so in depth. As a first time buyer, he took the time to explain things and was so willing to teach me a lot in the process and I couldn’t have asked for a better inspection all in all!
