We have used Ed for three inspections. The first was a home he told us to absolutely run from. The builder / owner had built the home and had no idea what he was doing and spray painted things to make them look new. Needless to say we took his advice and when we found a new home he conducted the inspection on the second home. Now that we’ve outgrown that home he recently did our inspection and of course if we ever buy a home in the future he will do that one as well. Super nice guy, very prompt and hard working. He’s not the cheapest, but he is one of the best. When buying one of the largest purchases of your life do you want the cheapest or the best? I’ll go with the best.
Made arrangements with Ed from 1500 miles away, no issues at all, very accommodating. He arrived on time, fully equipped with everything he needed. He was very thorough, very knowledgeable and fully explained any issues that came up. A true professional. Received the report in less than 8 hours which was really a surprise.
Space City Inspections is highly professional, thorough, and very responsive. Ed did an excellent job pointing out all the finer points of the inspection, and ensured i understood the condition and significance of every item he called out on the inspection report. Highly recommend.
Attention to detail and patient. I was not able to be at the residence during the time of the inspection but Mr. Fryday made sure to answer all of my wife's questions and be thorough during his inspection. He was also able to turn around the report within a few hours. This was important for us since our option ended the next day. Would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
Ed did a thorough job on my buyers home inspection. He was more than willing to go over the points of the inspection with my buyer on site. He also helped put my first-time home buyers to ease with some of the issues that arose during the inspection. He even answered more questions over the phone!! I will definitely keep Space City Inspections on my list of recommended inspectors.

Ed from Space City Inspections did an awesome job preforming our inspection. Not only was his price reasonable he was very thorough and informative every step of the way answering questions with great detail. He got the report back to us the very same day, which is fantastic since buyers only have a 10 option period which is crucial. You leave your new home to be with a sense of security knowing you were in good hands every step of the way. I would highly recommend Space City Inspections any day.
Thank you, Ed! You are the BEST, which is important to me. I researched home inspectors and your name came up many times--also, ReMax gave me a list and your name was on it. I was also told that you are a great human being!
I will read the report and post ratings for you.
Ed Fryday, of Space City Inspections, was fantastic. He was sensitive to my time constraints and was able to adhere to my required timeline. Ed was punctual and his attention to detail was second to none. He requested my presence during the inspection and was very forthcoming with information related to proper code. I truly appreciate his work and commitment to detail. I would recommend Mr. Fryday's services to anyone needing a qualified and courteous Home Inspector.
I have known Ed since 2012 and he has done home inspections several times for me. He is professional, through and detail oriented. He always patiently answers my questions and I have learned a lot from him. He is the best home inspector I have ever used and I would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants to purchase a new home.
Everything has been so hectic I didn't have a chance to thank you for a job well done. I will be very happy to recommend you to anyone looking for an inspector!
Ed did the home inspection and the initial walk through on the new home I purchased. Ed exceeded my expectations! He was professional, thorough and very patient. The home builder fixed all of the issues that Ed notated. As a result, I closed on my new home! I am super content! I highly recommend Space City Inspections!
Ed was fantastic! Very professional and prompt in every aspect. He educated me as we went through the house and provided a thorough report with color pictures and clear explanation the same day!
Today Mr Ed Fryday met me at my new home to do an inspection. Mr. Fryday did an outstanding job from walking me through every room going step by step explaining what he is looking for and why. Things I thought I was aware of I wasn't. With Mr. Fryday’s help and knowledge he broke down every form of jargon that I could relate to. Now I am more knowledgeable and know what to expect, & look for when I do my actual walk through later this week. I would encourage everyone to make sure they get a third party inspector and not rely on just the builders words. Mr. Fryday I will recommend you to all my family and friends that are in need of an inspection, Thank you very much for your help today and the knowledge that you instilled in my brain.
Ed was very thorough when inspecting my home. He noticed every detail and is very knowledgeable on standards and codes. Also he made point to walk me through every step and explain each finding. He works to keeps the buyer involved throughout the whole process.
Thank you very much for your services.
Ed was prompt to our early morning appointment and graciously allowed us to follow him over the next four hours as he explained everything to us. He was more than willing to answer questions and did an incredibly thorough job. His report came later that day and was detailed with colored pictures and annotations, as well as recommendations. His observations clearly came from years of experience and study, and he was extremely courteous and professional throughout. Ed absolutely enjoys being a home inspector and it shows. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Ed came out on short notice to inspect our new house. Our inspection report was very detailed and Ed even put links in the report so that we could learn more about particular items. Ed was very thorough and methodical in how he performed his inspection. One thing I really liked about him was that before he came onto the property, he had put on knee pads and a tool pouch. In other words, it was a "hands on" inspection. I know on previous visits to the house that I had looked at a few things several times and didn't see any issues, but Ed put those knee pads and gloves to work and uncovered loose bricks in our fireplace and some faulty wiring. Great job!!!
Very glad we found this highly rated BBB company prior to home purchase. Very valuable service, saved us a lot of future headache and expense. Ed was super efficient and knowledgeable. Money well spent for his services.
Ed performed a residential house inspection for me in Bay Oaks on July 18, 2016. I was very impressed with Ed’s knowledge and experience and he was friendly and answered all of my questions. His inspection report was very well done. If I need another inspection done Ed would be my first choice.
We are buying a newly built house and was skeptical about home inspection. I mean, how defective can a new house be? However, we convinced ourselves that the fee is only 0.1% of our investment. Ed Fryday was our first choice after reviewing his website. He accommodated us in his schedule and was flexible with days and time. At the site, he was very thorough and shared his expert comments, with a novice like me, beyond regular inspection. I recommend shadowing him during inspection to learn more about your house, however, his thorough report is pretty self explanatory as well. Ed did a thorough job and also showed off his sense of humor. Ed Fryday is my sincere recommendation to anyone looking for a home inspector.
It's been about a year since you and I spoke but you did my home inspection in the Sedona subdivision in League City.
At the time I mentioned I'd like to refer you to my family if they move here because they were thinking about it. Well they have, and they are. My sister is closing on a home in my subdivision soon and I'd really like it if you were the one doing her inspection too because of the wonderful and detailed job you did for me.
I've put my sister on this email so you two can start a dialog together.
I recently hired Space City Inspections to perform a home inspection and was extremely pleased with their quality and how professional and Ed Fryday was. He took the time to explain what he was looking at and the different degree those items would impact safety or future integrity of those related items. The report he issued was very thorough yet easy to comprehend.
Ed, I just wanted to let you know I received your detailed report. Thanks again for the quick response on a short notice inspection. It was a pleasure working with you I greatly appreciate all the explanations along the way. Your report will be very helpful for me to use as a reference to ensure the house stays in top shape.
We truly thank you for your time and patience with your willingness to work around our crazy schedules. Very easy to talk to and get in touch with. Thank you for responding quickly and showing up on time even when it looked like we might have to reschedule. Very professional and I really appreciated the feedback and thorough explanations even an amateur like myself could understand. I learned a lot of helpful information and feel more confident and less worrisome about moving into our new home. As repeat customers I can genuinely say that it’s money well spent.
Overall we were very pleased with our service from Space City Inspections. Despite the pouring Rain, Ed arrived ahead of time and had already taken several pictures before we showed up. He identified several deficiencies that we would have missed and went over each one with us. The report we received was easy to understand and provided sufficient detail on each issue. In general we feel more confident about the purchase of our home.
I have to say, although I was not present for the whole inspection, it was very apparent that Ed had thoroughly and methodically inspected the home well. He took the the time to pick the house apart section by section, interior and exterior and then delivered a report with his findings the same day. He took the time to explain his findings and we actually did a 30-45 minute walk through after he was done to explain/highlight any areas of concern. We would highly recommend him.
