Ed is a true professional when it comes to whole house inspections. His communication is prompt honest, and straight to the point. He's very helpful discussing things he says as he is going through the house with you as the purchaser. He catches items that are a potential concern, discusses why they are a concern, and then generates and transmits a report very promptly. I would recommend him to anyone considering a house purchase.
Thanks for a very thorough inspection. I would recommend your services to anyone I know.
Ed did a home inspection for us recently on an older two-story home. As first-time home buyers, we were very nervous about what we would find. Ed was extremely thorough on his inspection, and took the time to answer any questions we had during the inspection process. His report was very detailed and to the point, we were very pleased with his work. If we look to move in the future, we would not hesitate to call upon his services again.
My wife and I really appreciate the thorough job you did with inspection of the condo we are planning on purchasing. Going into such a financial commitment, it helped us to know that it was a well constructed structure overall and the things you pointed out will help us to make it a better property, energy and safety wise.

Loved your service, polite, very professional and above all VERY PROMPT with showing up on time. I value that very much as my time is important to me.
Mr. Ed Fryday,
We sincerely appreciate the inspection you did for us on our house. You definitely made it easy to schedule and to communicate with you. You really did a very thorough job and the inspection report was easy to follow and understand. We would definitely recommend you to anyone interested in buying a home. We did end up buying the home you inspected, and because of the report the sellers and ourselves were made aware of all the little things that were potentially dangerous and they were fixed.
Having had you inspect two houses for us now, I'm very pleased with the thoroughness of the work. And now after having crawled into every nook and cranny of that house myself over the last couple-weeks, I haven't found anything else that that I think could possibly have been observed in a buyers inspection.
I'm especially impressed after having seen the work of another inspection company in the buyers report on the home we just sold... While he did catch the issues of substance, there were a number of readily apparent superficial issues that, as a buyer, I would have expected to be at least noted in the report.
My husband and I have only positive comments about the inspection Ed Fryday did for us. The housing market has been very busy and tons of inspectors were backed up or not answering calls. Ed answered right away and even asked if I had any concerns up front. We set up a date and all went smoothly from there. He made sure to touch bases with us when needed to assure he was working towards the date of inspection. At the inspection he took pictures of everything that needed replaced/repaired and was very professional. We got the report that night including the pictures with markings and side notes. He recognized several things we never would have that will help keep our new home in top shape as well as things we presented to the seller. We highly recommend Ed! He was worth every penny!!

Thank you for providing a thorough inspection. It was top notch and it allowed us to insure our home purchase met the VAs stringent requirements. We would recommend your service to any home buyers.

Ed Fryday was recommended to me by my Family's Realtor. I could not be more pleased with his work and professionalism. At the time of inspection, I was living out of town, Ed made it very easy for me to schedule the appointment, and mail him the check for the inspection. Even though I was unable to attend the inspection, I was very pleased by the emailed inspection and all of the photos that were taken! I had some questions about the home and listened to his suggestions on following up with some of my concerns. I hired a mechanical inspection of the AC by his recommendation, and am so glad I did! I had the seller fix what could have been a horrible leak from the AC condensor. I am purchasing the home, feeling satisfied that I know a lot about the home's condition, and I feel so happy to be buying my first home thanks to Ed!
Ed was knowledgeable and friendly, and he gave helpful advice regarding the ins and outs of my new home. His report was very detailed and thorough, which made it easy for me to relay the information back to the builder before final walk through and get the house in tip-top condition. I would recommend using Space City Inspections to anyone who is in need of a good home inspector.
Ed was very thorough and very knowledgeable. I met him at my future home and spent the entire morning with him going through every last detail of the house. He was very open to letting me tag along and was able to answer any question I had that came up during the inspection. Ed was very knowledgeable about past and present codes and what has changed in recent years. He also provided me with valuable information for any new homeowner such as where the water shut off valves are and what to look out for regarding AC drainage. These are just a few examples of how thorough Ed was during the inspection. I would recommend him to any friend or family member moving to the area. 5 stars!
We were completely satisfied with your service. You were detail oriented with your inspection and gave us good tips/suggestions for home maintenance. If we move again in the same area, we would definitely use your service.
Dear Mr. Fryday:
Thanks very much for your inspection of the house we are buying in Friendswood. The inspection report was the most complete I have ever seen, and contained a lot of valuable information for us to use in getting the house into perfect shape. We will be closing on the house next Monday, April 7, 2014. I think that you did an excellent job, and am pleased to recommend your services to anyone in need of a house inspection.
Mr. Fryday (Ed) is a home buyers' best friend and your advocate for understanding the investment you are about to make/consider regarding a new home purchase. Ed is terrific to work with, his attention to detail is second to none and his personality is as equally terrific as his talent in identifying any/all potential issues with your investment opportunity. I would recommend Ed and use him any time, any place!!
Ed Fryday was our home inspector during our recent home purchase, and we couldn't have been happier. He was very professional and helpful, both during our communication prior to the inspection as well as during the inspection itself. He encourages his clients to be present during the inspection and is happy to give detailed explanations of everything he does and finds. I went along as he inspected our new home, and he answered any questions I had and never seemed rushed or bothered. He was always friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He sent the inspection report very fast and answered several questions we had over the next week. The report itself is extremely detailed, with good pictures and descriptions. All in all, working with Ed was a great experience, and we would recommend him and his services wholeheartedly.
The numerous positive reviews found across multiple sources for Space City Inspections and Ed Fryday are backed up by his honest and thorough work. My wife and I were greatly pleased with the in-depth analysis, clear reporting, and guided walk-through following the inspection. I'd highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an inspector whose knowledge and experience will provide the critical information needed when purchasing a home.
I really appreciate the inspection that you did on the Fite Rd. house. You caught some things that I would not have noticed, and led me to back out of the contract. When I find another house that I will potentially purchase, you can expect a call from me.
THANK YOU again for what was a VERY thorough and informative inspection!! As other reviewers noted, you were timely, professional, and worth every penny. One aspect that especially stands out about your inspection is your focus on providing feedback and explanation after EACH section of the process. You explained your findings after the electrical check, the structural check, the sprinkler check, etc. Receiving a recap after each inspected area made it MUCH more digestible than receiving everything at once. In addition, your determination to ensure the inspection was received same-day was yet another testament to your professionalism. Without question, I will refer you to anyone I hear in need of an inspector and, when we hit the lottery and buy our NEXT house, you will be the man we call upon for the job! Thank you again and know it was a complete pleasure working with you and having the peace of mind of know what issues to have addressed before moving forward with our home purchase.
The buyers of our old home used Ed Fryday, and I was so impressed with his inspection that I used him to inspect our new home. Ed is the consummate professional: great correspondence throughout the process, extremely thorough technical knowledge of building codes and city ordinances, able to explain the nuances associated with any issues he finds with the home, and timely response from beginning to end. As an individual who has purchased a number of homes (both new and used), I highly recommend Ed for your Home Inspection.
I used Yelp to help me decide what home inspection company to use for my town home pre-purchase inspection. Communication with Ed of Space City Inspections was excellent. He told me when he could do the inspection and showed up prepared and on time. I attended the inspection and for the most part followed Ed around during the inspection. Although I slowed Ed down with his inspection with my questions he always took the time to explain to me what he was seeing during the inspection. I received the written report the same day as the inspection.
I can't say enough good things about Ed Fryday and Space City Inspections.
Ed was prompt, courteous and friendly. Most importantly, Ed completed a complete and detailed review of the home. He found things that we were surprised that we overlooked (such as a "bb" hole in a glass window), as well as hazards and issues that we're anything but obvious (including an unsafe gas connection in the kitchen).
Ed was very patient and detailed in explaining what he found to us, and he provided a detailed report including photos.
The bottom line is that I feel confident that we know every flaw and issue with the house. That's exactly what I want when making a large investment in a home.

We are very pleased with the efficient and thorough inspection Ed performed for us on our house in Pearland. Ed made the process very easy for us from our initial phone call to the contents of the final report. He was very knowledgeable about the house and all applicable building codes. We will recommend Ed to all of our friends and family needing home inspections in the future.
Ed Fryday of Space City Inspections, LLC was a joy to work with. He showed up on time, worked for several hours, was diligent and professional. There was not one area that went untouched throughout the inspection process. And he had our report to us in a timely manner. He answered all our questions and went through all his findings of inspection. We felt very satisfied and pleased with our choice of inspector. I would recommend Ed to anyone in need of a home inspector. He is truly top notch.
Ed was the inspector hired by the couple buying my house. He was very professional and even though he was clearly working for them, he was very courteous to me.
Ed was extremely thorough and found every little thing that was wrong with the house. I was so impressed that I hired him to inspect the house I was moving into and he did a very thorough job there identifying many things that needed to be fixed.
