Bob is punctual, professional, honest, knowledgeable and extremely thorough. He is an ASHI inspector and does wind mitigation inspection as well. He got right to work after introductions and continued non stop for 3 1/2 – 4 hours. We had the report online 4 – 5 hours after the inspection was completed. Lots of pictures were provided in the report along with detailed explanations of things that needed attention. He takes the time to explain things as he’s doing the inspection, which is fabulous.
Folks, it’s quite simple, if you want the truth and to be really confident in knowing what you’re buying CALL BOB!!!!!!! Don’t waste your time calling any other inspector. It will be the smartest choice you’ll make,. It’s worry free on the inspector front after you call Bob!
Comment:Thank you Bob for a very thorough and detailed inspection. This document with all the details and pictures will also serve as a reference for future maintenance scheduling. Although the home seems to be well cared for it is 12 years old and an inspection is important. I feel comfortable about buying this home based on your work.

We can’t recommend Bob Bales and Home Check Inspection Services more highly. We found him – and his good customer reviews – online: He promptly returned my call and made himself available to inspect the co-op we were buying on short notice. I have NEVER seen an inspection report like the one he prepared! He spent 5 1/2 hours, turned the place upside down, and provided photos of everything he reported. The report defines “thorough” and helpful. Bob is extremely pleasant to work with and offers good advice. You can’t do better! Nick and Lydia C.

Bob inspected two homes for us. We decided to pass on the first home after seeing his report and it likely saved us from buying a “money pit”. He did a very thorough job both times and we were impressed with the quality of his reports. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again. Mark & Bailey G.

As an investor it is important for a very thorough and accurate inspection. I have been buying and selling property for over 10 years. I have used many different inspectors before finding Bob. I will never use a different inspector again. Bob is the best. Period. The best reports I have ever seen.
Thanks again for the excellent work! Here is my testimonial:
I was purchasing a home that was newly renovated. I was looking specifically for a home inspector who had an ASHI license. I shopped around for prices and I found Bob who not only quoted me a very fair price but I could tell right away had years of experience. He also told us we would be able to view the report online which is a plus for us. He was very prompt with the appointment and actually arrived well before the appointment time.
Bob did a thorough check of the home for us and had no problem with us being there and taking the time to explain things as he was finding them. The home was newly renovated so it did not have many issues but that did not discourage Bob. He found an issue with one of the bath tub spigots that had it not been noticed could have cost us thousands down the road. He delivered us a report the same night that was very thorough. We were able to log in to a site he provided with our own user and password. The report contained pictures of every problem large or small with red arrows pointing directly to the problematic areas. It was sectioned up into a well organized manner with easy to read and understand details. The online report allowed you to view it online or to download a PDF which we took advantage of to send over to the seller to fix some of the issues.
Bob did a fantastic job and we are extremely pleased with how thorough he was with his checks. I would definitely recommend his services to anybody as his experience and knowledge in home inspections shines.
Dear Mr. Bales,
I looked through the inspection report to day as did my wife. We both found the report to be well prepared and informative. It will allow us to make decisions about how to proceed with the sale of this condo.
I am a real estate investor and have worked with several inspectors before finding Bob. I am so glad I have. The most thorough and professional inspection I have ever ordered in 8 years of real estate work. Thanks Bob
Robert Bales was punctual, polite, knowledgeable, and efficient. It’s good to have local contractors like this. Thanks Robert.
Sincerely, Donna B.
Very professional, competent, and informative. Excellent recommendations and observations. Please quote us for a new mitigation report after the renovations are completed. Thanks again, Mark
Bob did a wonderful job! He was both very quick to see the property and write a comprehensive home report. I recommend him and would use him again!
Thank you Bob, for your early response. You were very professional with explanations. I have submitted the report to my insurance , hope it helps
I was very pleased with Mr. Bales’ prompt, professional service. He did the survey and emailed it to me within the day. I would definitely recommend him.
Very knowledgeable on what he was doing and answers all our questions. also explain very well in detail of the work he was doing.
Thanks so much Bob. It was a pleasure dealing with you in a time when stress levels are high when buying a house. You were A+
Bob thank you so much for such quick and thorough work. We would recommend you highly. Bob and Melinda K.
We appreciated the walk-around pointing things out to us. The visual is always the best way for us to understand! Thank you so much for your help and for your
Bob was very through in his inspection, and did his job with great pride and professionalism. Thank you.
Efficient, prompt and clearly communicated all information in an accurate manner. We appreciated this kind of professional service. We would recommend Bob
at any time. Mr. & Mrs. White
I was a first time home buyer and I really appreciated Bob Bales’ thoroughness and attention to detail. Bob was prompt and on time and spent 4 hours inspecting a 2000 sq. ft. house. I followed Bob around and he patiently answered my many questions and offered some great advice. He thoroughly inspected the roof, the AC unit, electrical system, lighting, appliances, plumbing, walls and crawl space for water damage, and the attic. He inspected everything you can imagine or would want inspected. He did a wind mitigation report that saved us on insurance. He definitely works for you. I noticed the seller’s realtor was a bit impatient to be done but Bob didn’t pay her any mind and continued doing his job. I highly recommend Bob Bales. Great job. H.T. West Palm Beach 1/8/2013
Comment: Great job at a fair price! I wouldn’t hesitate to use again or recommend Bob’s services.
Comment: Thanks for helping us out so quickly. May God continue to bless you, your family, and your business.
I purchased a newly constructed home and called several inspectors for inspection and wind mitigation estimates. Bob not only gave a very fair quote, but after talking with him about the process; he gave me peace of mind. For anyone going through the home buying process, that’s priceless. Bob arrived for the inspection at our scheduled time and was professional and thorough. The builder was less than cooperative when we were doing the walk thru and having Bob here with us eased that frustration. Due to issues with the builder, Bob needed to return back to complete the wind mitigation part of it. I called him Thursday afternoon following our move in and he came the very next morning. Needless to say, I am glad I found him. I received Bob’s inspection report that very same day and am very happy with the documentation. If you choose or need to have an inspection done, do yourself a favor and contact Bob. You will not be disappointed.

Comment: Excellent service. Punctual, thorough and very knowledgeable. Couldn’t have asked for better.
We called Bob to do an inspection on our home purchase in Jensen beach. He did an amazing job and really went above and beyond to complete a very thorough inspection, including crawling through the attic in the blistering summer heat! Further, he was very fairly priced and I really feel like we got more than our money’s worth. I wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again or recommend him to a friend.
I am so glad we called Bob .. He did an inspection for our new home purchase in Jensen Beach .. He was professional, flexible, courteous, and worth every penny .. He found that our NEW home had NO INSULATION !! With his prepared reports we were able to work with the builder to complete/fix items he found .. THANK YOU BOB !!
