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.
I found Ed on the internet while researching for a home inspector I could feel comfortable and trust to inspect a house I was about the purchase. I will start with my experience with Ed when I was on the phone with him. I have never met him nor been referred to him before I called him. To be honest, his quote was a bit more expensive than two other inspection companies quoted me. However, his simple words convinced in no time that I could trust him and his service that I should be happy to pay just a bit more to have him check on the single biggest investment I will possibly make in my life.
I followed Ed around while he was doing the house inspection. The more I watched him work the more I felt blessed that I have found him. He is thorough, detailed minded, determined to look at every nook and cranny he could possibly get to. He performed tests on things and places I didn't even think needed to. He took the time to explain to me what he was doing and why it was important to check. He was easy to talk to and genuinely cares about the quality of work. He made detailed notes and emailed his inspection report to my agent and me in the same day! But his service didn't stop just right there. I had additional questions that I needed help with on a different property. I contacted him about my questions and guess what, he gave me a response more thorough than I had expected, without being paid!! What a great person and a professional to work with.
Ask Ed to help you with your house inspection. You will not be disappointed. Like he said, "we all know what we are worth. When I agree to inspect your house, I will only think and concentrate on your house alone."
I cannot be happier with the service and attention I recover from Ed. You will agree with me if you work with him as well!
Good Afternoon Ed,
I want to sincerely thank you again for your services! I can't express how happy I am that we chose Space City Inspections to conduct our home inspection! Thanks for the detailed report and all the additional helpful information you provided me during your inspection. Below is the review I posted on Yelp! (We don't have Facebook or Twitter). Feel free to post it to your website or anywhere else! We'd be happy to help more people hear about your excellent work!
I couldn't wait to give you a review so it doesn't mention the post-inspection report, but it is fantastic! Exactly what I was hoping for!
Like I mentioned when we left the house, I would happily recommend you to anyone looking for a home inspection! You met every expectation (and more) that I ever had in a home inspector!
Thank you so much Ed for doing our home inspection! We are very pleased with the job you had done! Tim and I both would highly recommend you to friends and family. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Good morning Ed,
We certainly appreciated working with you this past Saturday. You were thorough in all areas. Organized, methodical, very knowledgeable and explained as you went. We will not hesitate to use you again, and recommend you for structure, and pool inspection to those we know as well.

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.
Tom and Betheny B.
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.
