I was extremely impressed with Wayne's services. I found him to be prompt, professional and knowledgeable, as well as friendly and an excellent communicator. The reports were very thorough and easy to understand and he was always available and happy to answer any questions. Thanks to Wayne, I purchased my new home with confidence. I can't recommend him highly enough.

We would like to thank Wayne for the practical and thorough info provided to us during and after the inspection on the house we were buying. Also, the report was easy to understand, even for me. We will certainly use you again and will tell anyone that wants to listen to use Inner West Property Inspections.
