“Dylan is amazing at what he does!!! He pulls no punches and gives the house the benefit of the doubt. However, when something is amiss he will let you know. He is really a fantastic educator and is content with any and all questions you may have. He gives you the information to make an educated decision about what you are buying and whether or not is worth it to you. He saved us from buying a major lemon and we are grateful.”

Hi Dylan,I just want to take the time to thank you for doing the inspection of my condo. I was able to negotiate $4500 more from them, in addition to getting the things noted in your report fixed. The inspection fee was well worth it.My lawyer was surprised that you even go to the roof and inspect thoroughly the building structure and the garage. He even took down your name for future referral. Your report delivery was quick and in a format and language that is straight forward and easy to understand.I am so glad my friend recommended you. I would definitely recommend you to my friends in the future.

Thanks again.

Dylan Chalk and Orca Inspection Services came highly recommended and he lived up to his reputation. He inspected our new home thoroughly and explained to us how different parts of the house worked. We especially appreciated his reassurances about the structural soundness of the home, while pointing out the areas that needed to be fixed. Dylan provided his report that same night and wrote it up such a way that we were able to negotiate with the seller to get $10,000 off the sales price. We were very happy with his services.–Mindy

We’ve seen many inspectors work over the past six years of acquiring both residential single-family, condominiums, and multi-family properties. Nothing has compared to Orca Inspection Services and Dylan Chalk. The thoroughness of the reports, the quality of work and professionalism are superior and we never have any surprises with the properties he has inspected. We now hire Dylan sole source for all of our jobs and we strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a property inspector.-Scott Sanderson

Dylan is exactly what you would want in an inspector; friendly, knowledgeable, punctual, and informative.

He very methodically but without wasting time examined the entire house (3 buildings actually), explaining everything as he went. He did not shy away from the difficult to reach places.

I did not purchase the home in question but if I had would have felt confident that I knew most or all of the issues involved.
