Inspector Brent Rice around Lake of the Ozarks specifically seemed well versed in various construction techniques, codes, and when he wasn't certain, he researched before giving his final opinion. He was one of the easiest to reach home inspectors I've worked with during my career. He was kind, an effective communicator, and very efficient professional. We will be using him again!
