Reviews From Our Satisfied Clients

  • "Thank you for doing a wonderful job with your property inspection of my building at 1776/1780 Third Street, Napa in November/December of 2012. You discovered that my building was not anchored to the sill plate. The seller’s did anchor my foundation down before I purchased the building in March 2013 with Simpson Strong-tie anchor bolts, which saved my building from the Napa earthquake. I was actually on the NBC Bay Area news after the earthquake and Simpson Strong-tie made a you tube video. Hope all is well."
    Gratefully yours, Tanya
