I have had the experience of working with multiple homebuyers using Watermeade Valley Home Inspection and they have all been positive ones. Tom and Drew are thorough inspectors and good communicators with their clients, helping people understand potential problems, but also able to talk about types of remedy and potential seriousness (or not) of given conditions in a home. Tom distinguished himself recently with amazing post-inspection follow up on several inspections when questions emerged weeks or months later that he was able to help clients understand and resolve. I appreciate how approachable and responsive he is and don't hesitate to recommend Watermeade Valley to clients.
Happy Thanksgiving Tom. We were very pleased with the work of your company and Drew in particular. Drew answered all our questions and was very professional. We would definitely recommend your company.
I was pleased with your home inspection.
- You did the job with an assistant who reflected your professionalism.
- The report was produced within hours of the inspection.
-you both went into the crawl space. This demonstrated an attitude of excellence.
- The roof was actually "walked", and not just observed from the ground.
- The inspection report was useful not only to complete the negotiations for house sale but in enough detail for future owner maintenance.
My only regret is that I didn't spend more time with you during the inspection. It would have been an opportunity to learn.
I would certainly recommend your services to anyone needing a home inspection.
Tom is friendly, thorough, knowledgeable and professional! We recommend him to all of our clients!
Buying a house from out of state, just googled the local inspectors and ended up picking Tom. Made the right choice. Very professional and very, very thorough. The house supposedly had been previously inspected and was 'sound'. Tom found otherwise, and with his report in hand was able to renegotiate for 10k less. Thanks Tom.
It was a pleasure working with you. I would be delighted to recommend your services to others.
My husband and I were referred to Tom through a close friend who has used his services multiple times. Once I saw his website and the ease of access for booking an inspection while also providing a clear mission and vision for his company, I didn't need to shop around any longer.
Tom is highly regarded in his previous professions, as I found and article in the local Thurston Talk - praising his experience and thorough dealings with home matters in his personal life.
Our appointment was booked with ease online and when we arrived Tom was already there surveying the outside of the dwelling. He worked well with our realtor to get access. Tom provided feedback to both my husband and I concerning his findings and was very well versed in his skills.
We were so fortunate to have Tom involved in this process and we feel confident recommending his company for any and all of your needs.
One amazing feature, Tom provides, is a type of cloud "homebinder" where he lists our appliances and their serial numbers to check for recalls. My husband and I have created an account - free from atoms business - and are able to track when maintenance is due or to store important documents for warranties and other tracking systems.
Thank you so much, Tom!

Tom is my go-to inspector for friends and family as well as clients. I can always count on a thorough inspection with clear and concise delivery of the facts. Tom just tells the story of the home and remains a true professional even when the results of the inspection are less than desirable.
Thank you for this comprehensive and thorough report. And thank you for putting the complex matrix of technical evaluations into an understandable format for the layman. I am the poster boy layman. All in all, this experience has been put together with a great deal of professionalism and common sense. I would recommend your expertise to anyone I know needing your services.
My husband and I were referred to Tom by a close friend-and I know this friend to be a reliable source and was she ever! I found it so easy to book Tom online and with a quick turnaround time too. He had great availability times.
Tom arrived to the home well ahead of schedule and had a look at the outside of the home. Once we arrived with the realtor, Tom proceeded to start the inspection. He was very transparent on the process and walked us through the steps.
He answered all of our questions with kindness and consistency and even showed us specific concerns. Our realtor knew him as well and said he was highly regarded.
Before Tom came to the house I did some research on him and was very pleased to see an article in the ThurstonTalk which helped me understand the type of person he is and I knew he would be amazing in person.
His paperwork was clear as well and I truly believe his diligence helped us close on the home quicker! A month quicker, to be exact.
I also emailed Tom to ask for referrals to have a deck and gas line put in to our home and he responded with great referrals.
Please use Tom if you need an inspection, he is a trained professional and provides the best service!
