Important Disclaimer – Read First:

These contacts have been provided as a courtesy to our clients. They have been put together over many years by several different inspectors as well as through personal acquaintances and recommendations from friends and clients.

Orca Inspection Services in no way benefits from these referrals and recommends that you do due diligence in researching all companies that you choose to work with.

We hope that with regular client feedback we can improve on this list and edit out those referrals that are no longer performing to satisfactory standards or those who are no longer in business. Please understand that over the years many conditions change in the world of contracting and it is difficult for us to keep track of all these changes. Your regular feedback is much appreciated in helping to keep this list current and of high quality. Thank you for your help in making this a quality referral page.
