Mel is a consummate professional, he's knowledgeable, detailed oriented, and totally focused. He takes the time to explain in plain language while answering any questions you may ask him. He keeps abreast of current changes and trends in his fields of expertise. He possesses the professional qualities that home Sellers and Buyers are looking for in Home Inspectors; Communication Skills, Honesty, Technical Competency, Work Ethic, Flexibility, and the unique ability to work with Buyers, Sellers, and Realtors. I highly recommend Cochran Home Inspection Services LLC to everyone. You will not be disappointed.

Fast and reliable. Called Cochran Home Inspection late afternoon to conduct a radon test and they were able to get right out the next day. The reports is easy to understand and are more detailed than any other company I have worked with as a Realtor. Great customer service and great prices. Would recommend to all my local clients.

Mel is highly knowledgeable, thorough, meticulous, professional, helpful, and friendly. He does not rush things, he takes time to explain everything he does during an inspection, he makes you feel that you are in good hands and that your decision to buy or not to buy a certain property is going to be a well-informed one based on his inspection. He is extremely punctual and treats every property with due respect. For instance, he always wears indoors shoes during the inspection, separate from the ones that he uses outdoors. His reports are timely and very detailed. His communication skills are very fine and he truly works towards the full satisfaction of his clients. I recommend Mel warmly and without any hesitation to anyone who needs a home inspection in the area that he serves.

My wife and I have now used Mel on two different occasions. We placed a contract on a new home about a year ago, we called on him to do our home inspection and he did a great job. Later we decided that home was not for us and continued looking. A year later we are back in the market for a new home and we called in him again. He is very thorough in his inspection and in his reports. I have received his reports both times promptly with in 24 hrs of the inspection. I have already recommended him to several people and will continue to do so.

Winfield Herring

Mr. Cochran was very professional & friendly! This was our first inspection for a home we're interested in buying! Throughout the inspection he explained what he was inspecting and why. At the end of the inspection he went over all the issues and concerns and answered all of our questions. He gives you a real price quote over the phone when the appointment is made, which was nice so you're not sticker shocked at the end of the inspection. I would highly recommend him to anyone! You won't be mislead! Thank you Mr. Cochran!

At first I did not want to be present for the home inspection because I felt like me watching someone do their job would be a waste of time, especially since I would be getting a report later anyway. I ended up being their to meet Mel and I could not have been more wrong. Mel was very thorough during the home inspection and would talk me through everything that he is doing and exactly what he was looking for and why. He would even mention/note important things that every homeowner would know such as things to keep an eye out for, services to do, and other important thing. All in all Mel was a great homeowner and did a great job. I would recommend his services to anyone that will need them.

Jacob Marsh

Polite and Very Informative
Mel is an inspector who knows a lot and taught me and my daughter a lot about our new home. We needed a home inspection of our house located in Fredericksburg, Virginia, before our 1 year warranty expired with the builders. He supplied pictures of all rooms in the house and anything we questioned, along with recommendations, he included in the report to be discussed with the builders. Everyone should have a 1 year inspection conducted before the warranty expires. Would definitely recommend him to everyone requiring this type of inspection. Very happy with his expertise, politeness, and demeanor. This inspection was conducted April 2018 and it should be noted that I have had other inspectors with other houses I've owned and they were not as thorough as Mel. He also conducted a radon test on my house in addition to the housing inspection. Good job!!!!! :)

He takes the stress out of a stressful process.
Mel inspected a house for me and it was an incredibly informative experience. He is thorough, easy to talk to, and explains every step of the way. The issues he found were clearly explained and thoroughly looked at. He doesn't just notate issues when he finds them, he looks for the source and explains every step of the way. Other inspectors would just notate things like "toilet doesn't fill or flush" or "no power to outlets in bedroom" But Mel found the faulty part in the toilet and the goofy wiring that caused a gfci outlet to trip the breaker. I could write pages discussing how helpful and thorough he is, but the bottom line is, Mel goes the extra mile for his clients. I can't recommend his services enough.

Professional, thorough, and fast
My experience with Cochran Home Inspection Services, LLC was the best and easiest part of buying my new home. I needed a good home inspection as fast as possible, and Mel was able to meet the following day to inspect the home and turned the report around in less than 24 hours. Not only did Mel walk me through every aspect of his findings, he also gave outstanding advice on how I could maintain a home in good order after closing. His communication throughout was phenomenal. I knew what to expect and when to expect it at all times. Mel is a consummate professional who knows his trade and I would recommend him and Cochran Home Inspection Services, LLC to anyone needing a home inspected.

Mold Air Testing
Mr. Cochran was a pleasure to work right from when we first contacted him to set up the testing, until the whole process was completed. He was able to schedule our inspection at a time that was convenient for us. He always returned messages quickly. We received our reports with the results within a week. We would highly recommend him.

I hired Cochran Home Inspection to perform a radon test on our new home. Mr. Cochran was thorough, punctual, courteous, meticulous in appearance and an expert in his field. Mel explained in detail everything before hand, during and after the testing. Every business should strive to be like Cochran Home Inspection. Thanks and Semper Fi!

Anthony R.

Excellent communication! I appreciated the timely response after utilizing their website's contact us tool. They explained everything in detail and were very transparent. It was also a plus that they are familiar with the unique challenges that arise when military members and their families PCS. It is my pleasure to highly recommend Cochran Home Inspection Services.

Did the job on time with continuous updates

Raymond M - Fredericksburg, VA

The first impression matters and when Mr. Cochran showed up to the appointment early and immediately seemed professional I knew I picked the right company for the job. The report was very in depth and written professionally and easy to understand. His attention to detail was superb and I would recommend him to anyone!

Gary L - Fredericksburg, VA

From our initial contact, Mr. Crochran was a true professional in every way. He explained the process and the guidelines for Radon in a manner which any lay person could understand. He performed our test and let us know that if it was above the acceptable level he could recommend companies to install the equipment but that he did not do the installation. We were also impressed when he told us that he did not receive referral fees from the companies he referred. Can't say enough good things about him and his service and want to thank Home Advisors for sending him our way. Not only will we use his services again if needed (already recommended him to several of our friends) but will also use Home Advisor again! THANK YOU!

Sandra S - Fredericksburg, VA

The inspection report was on time, professionally written, in-depth, and helped me with my home purchase. He did a great job!
