Happy Customers

I highly recommend Done Right Inspections for home inspections in the Austin area. I contacted them at 7pm with an urgent request for a home inspection (given a short, 5-day option period), and James and Colleen were able to accommodate with an inspection the following morning.

James and Colleen work as a great team to thoroughly evaluate all aspects of the home. They have been inspecting homes for a long time and know what to look for. As a first-time buyer, I appreciated their willingness to teach me about my new home. They were patient and extremely friendly.

Done Right Inspections prepared a detailed, 36-page report of their findings within 6 hours of the completion of the inspection. I particularly appreciated all of the photos that were included in the report, which served as evidence of any deficiencies. Their report allowed me to negotiate specific pre-closing repairs during my option period. The seller even noted that it was one of the most thorough inspections he had ever seen!

I had the pleasure of working with the husband and wife team from this home inspection company, and I couldn't be more impressed with their thoroughness and attention to detail. From the moment they arrived, it was clear that they were committed to providing the most comprehensive inspection possible.

Their expertise was evident as they explained their findings in a clear and understandable manner. They took the time to answer all of my questions and address any concerns I had, which really put my mind at ease.Their attention to detail was evident in the comprehensive report they provided, complete with detailed descriptions and accompanying photos.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this home inspection company to anyone in need of a thorough and detailed inspection. Their professionalism, expertise, and genuine commitment to their clients' satisfaction set them apart.

I worked with Colleen at Done Right Inspections LLC. From the start she was personable, responsive and respectful. Done Right did a very thorough inspection of the property. Personally, this was a huge value to me, which helped me make the decision whether to move forward with this home or not. I asked Colleen to review a few items that were not part of the inspection since I am in a different state. Colleen went out of her way to help me on these items. The report came back the very same day, with pictures and explanations. Done Right is the only company I would use for inspections. Thank you, Colleen and team, for your promptness and explanations.

Meticulous, kind, and caring people. They did an outstanding job with our new home, by far the best experience I've had with inspections and far exceeded our expectations. They walked us through everything they saw good and bad with our build and it made us feel very cared for!

The plumber was here today and scoped and rodded the sewer line. There was dirt and lawn debris right by the cleanout, so much so that they couldn't even get the camera in very far. The "new cap" was replacing a clean out where the cap was broken or missing. No wonder there was dirt and debris. They rodded that out and all looked good (drain was flowing nicely). I insisted they run the camera again and what do you know, the pipe was disconnected right at the corner where the back and side fence meet. It appears when they replaced that side fence the fence company put the post and concrete directly over this pipe. The seller is trying to get the plumber back on Monday to dig up that section and reattached it. The total cost (seller's cost) for the camera inspection and pipe repair will be $3,365. Without Done Right's diligence this would have been my cost. Plumber told me he runs into this a lot with buyers where the inspector never opened up the clean out.

We were extremely pleased with the attention to detail that "Done Right" provided on our recent new build! They were very thorough and professional. To add, the time frame in which the inspection order was received and executed, was nothing short of amazing. 5 Stars is not enough for this company. Highly recommend!! 10 out of 10!!

Was a very simple process. Filled out an online form and chose my inspection time. I needed an hour later than was available so I called Colleen and it was no problem. They inspected the entire house including roof and attic, taking lots of pictures and talking to us throughout the inspection. By the end of the same day we received the full report. Definitely should use Colleen and Jim if you need a home inspection!

I just had Colleen and Jim out from Done Right Home Inspections. I highly recommend them! Very detailed and professional. They pointed out many small issues and thankfully I only had a few big issues with my Gehan home. After they were finished they showed me the pictures and explained any problems that they found.

Cannot say enough amazing things about Colleen and Jim with Done Right Home Inspections!!! From the first contact and talking me through their whole step by step process, being incredibly flexible with the timing, and just being amazing at their craft, they have been a stellar couple to work with. My wife and I felt extremely comfortable and at ease knowing such experienced inspectors were walking our new home. They have an eye for detail and it shows in their report. I will recommend them to anyone and they will be doing any future home of ours. Thank you again Colleen and Jim!!!

I just received my home inspection report from Done Right Inspections which is far more detailed than I had imagined.

Colleen and Jim did a fantastic job of going through every part of my home, giving me feedback as they did and taking pictures to illustrate their comments.

Afterwards, they spent time helping me prioritize which issues should be dealt with first and which were actually less important. It is a huge relief for me to know where I stand concerning repairs as I try to decide whether to stay in my home or to sell.

Both Colleen and Jim's. knowledge and level of experience were obvious from the moment they arrived, explaining how they would proceed and how much time they would need to complete their work. Each brings a unique skill set and eye for details to the process.

I definitely know that I chose the right company to do my inspection. I highly recommend Done Right Inspections.
