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.
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.
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!
