James was impressive in every way. He was on time, accurate, and responsive. I called James on a Monday and he came out the next day!
I chose him because he was certified to do home inspections and termite inspections. We were there on site with him and were impressed by his attention to detail. The report was so comprehensive and easy to go over online. It was great that we are able to print the report and look at the things he had identified by sections as either areas of the house or areas of concern.
I highly recommend James Taylor and four corner inspections.
James is great, honest, knowledgeable, accomodating, and eager to have you present during the inspection to share all the findings and explain the possible issues and remedies. His reports are thorough or should I say more than thorough, timely and a great service at a more than fair price. I can not say enough good things about our experience and HIGHLY recommend to any one buying a home!!!
James has done three inspections for me in the last few months. He is extremely professional, thorough, friendly, and willing to explain anything. His reports were very helpful in making final decisions on the house to purchase and we will save a bunch of money on repairs because we were able to negotiate a better purchase price to handle the necessary repairs that I would have missed.

Home Inspection FAQs
What is a home inspection?
Home inspectors examine an entire house from the top of the roof down to the soil, moving room by room. The primary purpose is identifying structural and major system flaws including anything safety related.
What does a home inspection include?
A certified home inspection covers the foundation, lot, roof, exterior, attic, interior, basement, electrical, plumbing, appliances and the heating/cooling system.
Why is it important to get an inspection?
Buying a home is a big investment, the best way to confirm the value of your new home is by getting a certified home inspection. This is also an inexpensive way to find out what the condition of your home is and get leveraging power when it comes to negotiating the price with the seller if there are issues.
How much is a home inspection?
Across over 80,000 home inspections in the Spectora Home Inspection Software network in the past year, data shows the average home inspection to cost $358. The average home inspection cost from HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List was $395.
Why do I need a professional inspector?
Most everyday home owners can spot something obvious, like a random wire hanging from the ceiling. However, they aren’t trained to see tiny details that are easy to miss or are mistaken as normal.
How long does an inspection usually take?
Typically, the home inspection itself usually takes about 2-3 hours. During this time the home inspector will check all of the major systems of the house. For larger homes or homes with additional features, this process will take longer. For small homes and condos, an inspection may only take 1-2 hours.
What’s included in the home inspection report?
A home inspection report should include the roof, attic, insulation, ventilation, exterior, siding, windows, doors, locks, flashing and trim, walkways, driveways, stairs, patios, decks, drainage systems, basements, foundation, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical.
Do I need a home inspection for a new construction?
Your newly built home is likely to have all of the latest energy-saving features and comforts that you could ever want. But it’s ALWAYS a good idea to get a home inspection, even on a newly constructed home. There may be undisclosed issues or shoddy workmanship and it’s possible the home may only be up to minimum standards.
Do home inspectors tell me if I should buy the house?
While a home inspector cannot necessarily tell you whether or not to buy a house, they will give you an unbiased opinion of the current condition of the property and let you make your own decision. A home inspector will be honest and tell you if a very expensive repair is needed but because everyone’s situation is different, that may not necessarily be a deal breaker for you. Some buyers might be looking for a good deal on a fixer upper.
