Had a great experience working with with Edgar. His priority is his customer. He provides a thorough inspection and comprehensive report that includes images and detailed explanations. I would refer Edgar to anyone who requires a home inspection.

Ed was a pleasure to work with. He was very flexible when our inspection had to be rescheduled. During the inspection he explained things very thoroughly, and made sure we understood what the main issues were. We received our report the very same night! I would definitely recommend Ed if you need any inspections done!

Ed with Orchard View Home Inspections was the epitome of professionalism from initial contact, with excellent communication throughout the process. Day of the inspection, we arrived and Ed walked us through everything in great detail, and had a very thorough report within 12 hours! We would highly recommend Orchard View Home Inspections!


From the moment Ed picked up the phone he was all about friendly customer service. We got an appointment quickly. He was thorough and professional with his inspection. After he completed the inspection he reviewed his observations. He was very patient and thorough answering questions from 3 of us. I would highly recommend Ed Crahan.
