Hello my name is John Laforme, I am the owner & lead inspector of Home Inspection Authority. My priority is to you my client, and my goal is to provide a thorough, non-bias visual general home inspection of the 5 major systems of the home and the general condition at the time of the inspection. My monthly continuing education as a CREIA certified inspector keeps me on top of changes in the home inspection industry which allows me to pass on that information to you and your family to help you make an informed decision on your real estate transaction. After the visual home inspection is completed I will go over my findings with you and advise you if any safety hazards are present and or if any system defects are observed during the general home inspection that require further evaluation by a qualified licensed specialist before the end of your inspection contingency period.

John was amazing. My wife and I recently closed on a Townhouse that was inspected by John. He spent over two hours during our inspection - looking at every single detail! There was some mold and water intrusion that was found which had to get fixed. John went over with us on the problems he found and we also received a report after the inspection was finished. I would highly recommend Home Inspection Authority to all my family and friends.
It was a pleasure working with John Laforme as my home inspector for two different properties. His expertise and professionalism were evident throughout the entire process, exceeding my expectations at every turn. John's meticulous attention to detail shone through. He thoroughly examined each property, leaving no stone unturned. This comprehensive approach ensured I received a complete picture of the properties' condition, giving me peace of mind. John's ability to educate me throughout the process was invaluable. He patiently explained each step, highlighting areas of concern and offering insightful explanations. His clear and concise communication made it easy for me, a novice, to understand the complexities of home inspections. John's flexibility and responsiveness were truly impressive. He readily accommodated my tight schedule, scheduling an inspection for the very next day after my call. He even went above and beyond by delivering a detailed report, complete with photos and explanations, on the same day of the inspection. This level of commitment to customer satisfaction is exceptional. Without hesitation, I highly recommend John Laforme to anyone seeking a professional and knowledgeable home inspector. He is truly the best in his field and deserves the highest praise.
John was of great help and was very detailed through two home inspections. The first home we made an offer on, John found a lot of issues with the house. That house was no good. When we were blessed to quickly get another offer accepted on our new home. We told our realtor to hire John again for this inspection. He again did an excellent job. Very detailed, thorough and explains things in basic English. We hired him for both home inspection and sewer line. The sewer line is something everyone skips over, but it could be pricey if anything happens. For a couple extra hundred dollars - having John check the sewer line is also very important. It can save you thousands of dollars later on. After going through two inspections with John we learned so much. Now we can’t help, but notice little things that John showed us when we look at other houses or go to someone’s else house. We highly, highly recommend John.
