Client testimonial: Quick, Thorough and Fair

Sentinel was quick and charged a fair price for the work. The inspector came when his said he would come, and he did quality work. He was great at explaining about the work and answering any questions on the job.

Client testimonial: Professional and courteous

Brian arrived promptly for our appointment. After a discussion of our situation, he quickly had a theory of the cause of the problem. Brian went under the house and found our leaky pipe. He was professional and courteous. He also provided a thorough written report. I will recommend Brian Handy to all my friends and associates.

Client testimonial: CONCISE, to the point and reliable

I have utilized Sentinel's services for more than twenty years.  Their extensive knowledge of home construction allows them to effectively identify all areas of concern during the inspection process.  The reports are concise, to the point and understandable.


Brian Handy is always willing to review the report and has the ability to explain it to individuals who may be unfamiliar with home construction, the terms used, and the issues that are involved or arise.


My job as a Realtor is to provide my clients with the best information available in as easy to understand format. Sentinel Inspection Service does just that.  I highly recommend that you take advantage of their services for your clients also.
