Very Professional Inspection
Don & Suzi Heineman from Steamboat Springs, CO
Phil did a very professional inspection of the home we are buying in Loveland, CO. He made sure everything on his inspection checklist was properly and completely inspected without rushing to the next item. He took time to answer and explain our questions, and gave a great recorded pictorial review of the entire process using his laptop computer - most impressive! We had additional questions and concerns during the week following the inspection, and Phil gladly and courteously responded to our phone calls in a very timely manner. We would be happy to recommend Phil and Home Front Inspection if the occasion arises in the future.
Re: Very Professional Inspection
Don and Suzi,
Thank you for the kind review. I really appreciate it. It was my pleasure working for you.
Enjoy your new home.

Shirley Cline from Bennett, Co
Dave was the one that completed our inspection. He was not only very professional but his overall inspection performance exceeded my expectations. The report that was provided gave a very specific review of the total condition of the house. I will use this company again in the future and I will recommend them to my family and friends.
Great Inspection team!
Athena Peppers from Westminster, CO
Dave was our inspector and he couldn't have done a better job for us. He was polite, helpful and very knowledgeable. He walked us through all of his findings and made sure we didn’t have questions. I felt like a part of the team through the whole process and will use Home Front inspection again. Thank you all!
Prompt,Professional, to the Point
Mike N from centennial, CO
Phil came out for our inspection and unlike most companies he gave me an exact time not a window when he would be there. He performed the inspection and was on his way, no games, no trying to justify his price, no lolly gagging. To the point and professional. I will refer him to any friend in need.
Aaron from loveland, colorado
Dave conducted our inspection. Their report is excellent and I looked everywhere to compare the sample report they have online. The report can outline a make or break deal at the beginning of buying a home and it can also be leverage to persuade the seller/seller agent to repair costly items. It's like case work. Awesome stuff. Dave and his brother Phil run a highly professional and impressive inspection company. He got on the roof, looked inside the furnace, examined every inch of the house exterior & interior , ran a water level, looked in cracks and crevices, paid attention to detail, took his time, had all the right equipment, and took some time to explain his work and share some good stories. Best inspector experience I've ever had. Well worth the extra money. I now know what bar to set my expectations to. I will refer Home Front Inspection, LLC to friends and family. Oh, he even went into the attic. Tom Martino was good to recommend these guys.
Robert Orr from Arvada
These guys are the best. At least five times during the final review process, my agent stated "you checked what" or "I have never had an inspector look at that before". Amazing service, well worth the cost and will refer all my friends and family to them and use them in the future if I buy another home.
Dale Bowman from Fredrick Colo.
Very friendly, professional and answered all of my questions without hesitation. Highly recommended.
Ruth Wolf from Arvada, Colorado
Dave has performed 2 inspections for me and he is very thorough and does a great job explaining things and answering my questions. Their reports are outstanding and include photos of the items found along with real comments - not just a checked box like others I've see. Their reports are FAST and useful for future "fix-it lists". Recommmend highly.
Would Recommend to anyone!
Sarah Hang from Brighton, CO
I was given around four different referrals for Home Inspections. Two right away came up on Google with related searches for them. The two had searches for complaints and bad reviews! Even though Colorado doesn't require that the inspectors carry licensing, I can't imagine someone choosing an inspector that doesn't carry one. When these guys do. If it's money issues that determine if you hire the licensed one than you shouldn't be buying a home. Finding and hiring a competent inspector has to be the most important thing a home buyer could ever do! This inspector works only for the buyer, this happens to be the only person working for you period! If there is anything wrong with the home you plan to purchase this guy will find it! My mortgage lender said that his report was one of the best reports for a home inspection he had ever seen. So I would and will be hiring him again. We will use h for the inspection when our new home is done being built because if the builders or their inspection misses anything he will find it, have proof and documentation that will make the builders wish they had never made a mistake! Would recommend Dave to everyone, he's a well license, certified and insured inspector with only the buyers in mind!
Re: Would Recommend to anyone!
Thank you for the testimonial. It is always heart warming to know that my employees are doing the job as they should. It is also encouraging for my inspectors to know that they helped yet another home buyer.
I hope all goes well.
Homefront Inspection LLC
Dmitry from Centennial
Dave performed a very thorough inspection for fix-and-flip home I was buying and found several issues which would have cost about 4 times more than what I paid for the inspection. With the seller paying for fixing them it was definitely money well spent. Dave was very kind, he answered a lot of questions that I as a first time home buyer had and he even watched and explained sewer line video captured by another company before.
The report was very clear and was completed just a few hours after the inspection. I also appreciate that the guys were able to schedule the inspection in just two days when I called them. It was very important to me as I didn't have much time to wait.
Thanks a lot for your good job!
Todd Cole from Parker, Colorado
This was our first time buying a used home and using a home inspector. We did not know what to expect or how in-depth the inspection really was. Phil was very detailed in explaining the issues that he found and what was needed to repair those items. The reasonable cost of the inspection was well worth it.
Excellent service and report!
Sandra Winters from Westminster
Money well spent. Will continue to use Phil on future transactions
Best decision EVER!!
Nicole Steed from Bailey Colorado
Phil was amazing. He came on short notice and spent well over 4 hrs inspecting. Did a great job answering questions and didn't sugarcoat any possible issues. We had the septic scope done and he was willing to do it even knowing that the tank had not been pumped yet. Gave great advice on coding with upgrades/improvements we asked about. Introduced us to an awesome septic company as well. We will be bringing him back to do the well test when we get the water on. Definitely check out the home warranties he introduces you too as well. Takes pride in everything he does and loves his work. Thanks Phil for the beautiful photos and indepth inspection report.
Dan from Aurora, CO
Going into my first home purchase, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Once I got to the inspection stage of the home buying experience, Home Front Inspection was referred to me by my realtor. I couldn't have been happier with my experience.
I called and spoke to Home Front, on a Wednesday. They were able to schedule me for Saturday at 9AM that same week. I showed up at about quarter to 9, and the inspector was already there. He was very friendly, cleanly dressed, and professional. We spoke a bit about the property until my realtor showed up and let us in. The inspector was very thorough, and gave me a step by step explanation of everything he was doing, and looking for. The entire process took about 2 1/2 hours, which was longer than I had expected, but he was very thorough. Upon completion of inspection, he provided me with a run down of everything he found during the inspection. I received a paper copy, as well as an electronic copy of the inspection via email. I also received pictures, and a video copy of the sewer scope.
As far as the price, it was a little bit more than I had anticipated, but they came highly recommended, so I went with them. I'm very glad I did - they were professional, thorough, and willing to answer any questions I had during the process. They're worth every penny.
Overall, I was very pleased with Home Front, and would recommend them to anyone.
If you REALLY want to know. . . .

Another very professional and thorough inspection. I highly recommend Phil as your new home inspector. Thanks again Phil.
John from Conifer, CO
Phil did a very through job of inspecting the home we were looking to buy and was monumental in getting repairs to the home done prior to our purchase. He did a great job.
Greg Hartvigsen from Denver, CO
I had to schedule two inspections through Homefront and both times, I was thoroughly impressed with how easy it was to get an inspection on relatively short notice. Dave was very knowledgeable and provided feedback about the quality of every aspect of the home. He was also a pleasure to work with; he went through a thorough review of his findings at the end of the inspection and allowed time to ask questions. 100% satisfied.

Again, we would like to say Thank You to Phil for his recent insp of a house we were going to buy.

Thanks Again Phil.
Re: House Inspection
Hi Jim and Anita,
Thank you for the nice review. Sorry things didn't go well with the last house. But it looks like we are scheduled for another inspection next week. I hope this one goes well for you.

High Tech and Thorough Inspection
Jarrett Roberts from Highlands Ranch, CO
Having been an auditor for Nordstrom for 12 years, I know about customer service. Phil and team surpassed my high expectations with their thoroughness, use of the latest technology, and knowledge including catching a very recently announced danger with the gas flex tube. Their attention to detail and bedside manner made the experience very enjoyable. Their advice during the presentation impressed my realtors and I would highly recommend them. A+
Rating of Inspection - A1
James Henson from Aurora, CO 80013
Very informative. The inspection report was exactly what we needed to avoid a potentially bad situation.
Efficient and Friendly
Eric Newvine from Arvada
Right from the berginning I was kept "in the loop" as far as what was happening with the inspection. I was always given time between sections of the inspection to ask questions. The slide show summary presentation was a fantastic addition and gave me assurance that the job was well done.
Anyone buying a home, first time or not, should definitely work with Phil!
Detailed and thorough inspection
James from Mesa, AZ
Phil was my inspector and did a great job of identifying every possible issue with the home we are buying. This was even more important for us because we are purchasing a home in Colorado while still living in Arizona. I would recommend Phil to others needing a home inspection.
Efficient and Thorough
Dotty Thompson from Broomfield, CO
Dave was thorough and diligent with his inspection. He took the time to explain in detail the problems he found with the household. He found a hot water heater installation gas leak, which could have blew at any time. His find saved the people who were currently living in the household.
John Wanberg from Aurora, Colorado
Phil inspected the house we were looking to buy. I was impressed with his attention to detail, and his final report was very well done. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Well worth the price.

Being a new homeowner, I wanted a pro to evaluate my future home's state. I requested a general home inspection along with a sewer scope and radon testing. Phil and his team were able to detect some problems which I would have overlooked. They were quick and efficient and they gave a great presentation once complete. They also had a wonderful price for the quality of their work. Overall, I would give them an A++!!

Our inspection went great. He was very thourough and found some things I never even thought about checking. The report was outstanding. It was very detailed with great pictures showing all problems found plus additional pictures just to show the condition. Pictures also inlcuded labels on the water heater, air conditioner and furnace to ensure they were in code.
Thorough and Informative
Stephanie from Lakewood, CO
Our inspection was extremely helpful. Dave explained everything he found along the way, and answered our questions thoroughly. He helped us to understand what the concerns were with each issue. The report was fantastic, with detailed pictures and explanations. It helped us to truly understand the house we were buying, including potential issues down the road. Highly recommend!
1st ever home inspection
Ed Bloom from Centennial, CO
Phil and his partner were very thorough and took the time to explain everything to us after we arrived to the house after work with pictures and thorough explanations into what was more pressing to fix and what was more maintenance. A detailed report was given within 2-3 hours after the actual inspection was done and the radon report was given a few days later. I would recommend phil and his company to any of my friends and family
Tinker from Commerce City, CO
The inspection report was easy to follow and to communicate to the home seller. Many items were reported that we did not fine ourselves, one pretty serious and negotiable in the sale price.
Excellent Home Inspections
Joseph Bravo from Westminster, Colorado
Phil was excellent during the home inspection. As a first time home buyer I was not sure what to do with the inspection. Phil was kind enough to take a few minutes and explain every step of the inspection process to me. I would highly recommend Phil to any first time buyer!
Great Inspection Experience
Lisa Robbins from Byers, Co
Phil is very professional and pleasant. He made the inspection process very easy and was quick to schedule and report on the inspection. I would definately recommend him to others.
Phil is great
NICK from Denver, CO
Thorough detailed inspection with a very readable report. Would recommend to friends and family. Courteous and professional. Took time to answer followup phone calls and questions.
Jill from Thornton, CO
I was very satisfied with my home inspection. Phil was already at the property waiting for me on the day of the inspection and the inspection report was completed and sent to me via e-mail the same evening. He was very professional and courteous, as well as his receptionist who answered the phone and always got back with me in a timely manner!
Jessica from Durango CO
Phil provided an excellent service. He was very thorough and took the time to explain issues with me.
Brian from Dever, co
Did a great job !!!
Audrey from Fort Collins, CO
I understand how important it is to work with an inspector you feel confident with when buying a home. As a result, I would highly recommend using Home Front Inspection. I tend to ask many questions! With that being said, Phil took the time to explain his methods, process along with the instruments he used to evaluate my future home. He was thorough, ethical, realistic and honest; all of which are qualities I personally value!
Inspection done 3/23/12
Judy Threlkeld from Morrison, CO
Phil is a thorough professional who explains his findings and encourages discussion of issues. He goes beyond the call of duty, offering knowledgable evaluations in all areas. I own a home renovation business and I intend to hire Phil on each home I purchase in the future.
Bart Boudreaux from Denver, Colorado
I used Phil back in 2007 on a house in Arvada and recently used him again on an older home. Excellent job - we're very happy.
Balckhawk Home Inspection
Roger-Bonnie from Rock Island. IL
We have looked at homes in the Blackhawk area for a number of years. After finally finding the right place we wanted to make sure all is right. We where not able to be present for the inspection but had a family member and Realtor there. The inspection was very thorough and the findings were clearly written and documented with excellent photos. All dealings with Phil and his wife from the initial call to the final documentation have been very professional, friendly and timely.
Job Well Done
Jennifer Cantu from Aurora, CO
My inspection was done in a timely manner and was explained to me in a way I could understand. The report also was easy to read and understand. I appreciated the pictures of everything that was looked at. I would recommend Home Front Inspection LLC to anyone I know!
chipacles from Denver, co
Phil does a spectacular job and is very service oriented. He did a thorough job on a house I'm under contract for and, when he was finished, walked me through the issues. This is the only inspection I've ever had done, but I can't imagine a better job. Excellent in all respects!
first-time home buyer
Hanna Lind from Arvada, co
Well, this was my first home inspection experience. Phil explained the process and what he discovered as he went along. He explained what he found and also what he wasn't sure about. His inspection made me feel more confident about the property.
Christine from Denver, CO
I thought Phil and his team were great. They found things that were overlooked by others! I had questions days after the inspection and Phil took the time to address my concerns. I had a great experience!
Thorough and reassuring
Matt Yung from Denver, CO
Phil was great. He answered all my questions, had a keen eye for "defects" and helped point out areas of concern (and also put me at ease regarding some inspections findings that were less important/vital). He prepared a wonderful report which helped me get several items fixed by the seller and it also served as a useful tool regarding various maintenance items for me to be aware of.
Bill S from Brighton, CO
Phil did a fine job with our inspection. He was able to answer most of my questions and left us feeling secure that our new home was in great shape. He was also very timely in scheduling the inspection.
Lawrence from N/A
we like the way the home inspection went, the time they took to go over all the things that we had questions or concerns with. This was the second time in six months that the home was inspected by Phil and David and the photos that they took of problem areas was well appreciated. It will be easy to go back over these items after moving in and making repairs or hiring a contractor to replace or repair the problem. We didn't feel rushed and after the inspection was completed, we received detailed report of the inspection. This was very important to us as when the home is appraised by the bank, we have our inspection report to show our bank. Thank you ever so much for a job well done.
Elissa from Denver, CO
They did a thorough and timely inspection, answering all questions in full.
Professional and Informative
Matt from Denver, CO
Working with Home Front Inspection was an incredibly friendly experience. They made me feel secure in the home I was looking at and are very thorough in their work. I had no worries that something was overlooked that was going to rear it's ugly head in the future. For a first time home buyer, it was great to have the peace of mind that Home Front supplied.
Allan from Brighton CO
Home Front Inspection were very easy to work with. They were on time and charged me what they said the charge would be. The report was thorough and was easily downloded on line. Turnaround was quick.
Staci from Thornton,CO
Phil and his brother are great!! They are very thorough and make the inspection process very stress-free. Would use him even for a pre-inspection for selling a house!
Very Impressed with Home Front Inspection
Rebecca C. from Superior, CO
Home Front Inspection did a great job; Phil is very pleasant, courteous and very detailed! Once the inspection was completed, he explained his system and what he looked for and why. Any questions I asked, he explained and took the time to show me. I will say that he and his team are great to work with and I will use his company for a yearly inspection of my new home as I trust his work.
Great to work with!
Michael from Littleton, Co
We used Phil as a referral from our realtor. He did a great job, and was very friendly and informative. We really liked the way the report was presented to us. It helped us to easily decide what needed attention right away and what we would deal with as we maintain our home. I highly recommend Phil of Home Front Inspections!
Rocio from Colorado
For me being a fist time home buyer i have been stressing, but Phil made it so easy, he was so nice, patient and very informative. In my opinion he is what previous customers say "The best Home Inspector". I would definetely recommend him 100%
Incredible Experience with Home Front Inspections
Matthew C. from Arvada CO
I just want to say what a pleasure it was to work with Phil Gage from Home Front Inspections. Phil was flexible with my scheduling which was a necessity with my purchase of a HUD foreclosure. I set up an Inspection, Sewer Scope, and Radon Testing, Phil offers a package discount which was a very nice surprise. Phil arrived early for the inspection and was already started on the exterior when I arrived. I walked along with Phil each step of the inspection and he pointed out areas of concern as well as strong points. Phil documented all issues with lots of photographs. As we finished each area of the house Phil took the time to give me a quick debrief and allowed me to ask a ton of questions. Phil was able to test all of my systems and point out which ones while still working would need attention over the next couple of years. This was a huge plus as I can start budgeting now for those upgrades. The best part of the whole day was when Phil scoped my sewer, a previous inspection by an unknow person stated the Sewer line needed $7,000.00 in repair. Phil scoped the sewer and alowed me to watch the monitor over his shoulder. In the end we found that the only thing my Sewer needed was a good high pressure cleaning and not replacement. Phil provided me with a DVD of the sewer inspection and an independent plumber concured with Phil's expert oppinon saving me a cool $7,000.00 in trumped up repair costs!!!!!!!! Talk about a boost in my morale! I can not recomend Phil highly enough and can honestly state he is the only inspector I will ever call upon in the future.
Would Definitely Recommend
Debra from Connecticut
Buying a home in Colorado from Connecticut is certainly a challenge but we were very pleased with Phil - he did a great job.! We felt very comfortable because he was so thorough and his competency due to his years of experience was evident to us and a great help being so far away. Our discussions with him and receipt of a complete and throught report with pictures and detailed comments were tremendous. We would definitely recommend him and his company.
Bryce from Denver, CO
Phil's inspection lasted 4 hours, and he documented nearly every square inch of the home in his inspection report; the quality and clarity of the report is remarkable. he came highly recommended, and I highly recommend him.
Phil Has It Dialed In!
Dana from Louisville, Co
Phil Gage just inspected a home for us. He found active water damage with his thermal imaging camera, gave us reassurance by scoping our sewers, and picked up on slightly elevated radon levels in the basement. He was very thorough, was patient , educated us about the process, and promptly configurated a meticulous inspection report. We highly recommend him and would use him again!
Sharon from castle rock ,co
phil came out to do the home inspection and was very full of knowledge and letting me know what was wrong and how to fix it. It turned out that the house needed alot of work and phil said that if I was his daughter he would say run away. the house was not worth it.
Inspection Saved Me $7,000
pegage from N/A
We (Jeff and Elizabeth, re: 28380 E. 162 CT) took your advice and had the septic line video scoped. Turns out the previous owner's "water feature" (10 tons of rock) crushed the septic line. Estimate $7000 to repair.
Pros:I feel I got more than my money's worth with your inspection!!
Jul 31, 2008
ratkiewi from N/A
Phil found numerous items on new home construction that I would have never been able to identify. His very detailed report with analysis gave me the information I needed to make an informed decision. I recommend Phil's service to anyone purchasing a residence.

Inspection at 8358 S Pebble
jaarme from N/A
Creek Way #203 80126
Phil Gage is an exceptional real estate inspector. We had the opportunity to use Phil's expertise twice in two months. Due to his competence the first inspection resulted in our not purchasing the condo. He located and documented several previously unnoticed (or unreported) defects that if we had purchased the particular condo it would have eventually cost us upward of $6000. to $7000. more that the purchase price. Phil documents everything with words and photos. He is very personable and extremely efficient. We would recommend him to anyone in need of a real estate inspector. Thanks Phil, Jim and Anita
Pros:as written above
Oct 11, 2008
Satisfied and Informed Customer
rlloyd3030 from N/A
Phile was easy to work with and kept my wife and myself informed on the home we planned to purchase. He pointed out things in the house, and luckily not much missed his eye, and very minor things were found inside the home that needed attention. He also did theraml imaging, which pointed out where weather-stripping was needed to stop the lose of energy from inside. All in all, Phile did a great job, and my wife and I would highly recommend him to other potntial home buyers.
Pros:Knowledgeble, courteous, reliable, and cares about the client.

pt890 from N/A
What a great inspector! He spent a lot of time at our new house, showed us everything that could be a problem. He was courteous, well informed and very easy to work with. I would not even consider another inspector! His report had pictures to back up all defects, recommendations for things that needed to be fixed, and items just for our knowledge. Thanks, Phil.
Pros:Nice Report. Pictures. Price.

Thorough and Informative Inspection
bdragon from N/A
Phil is a great inspector, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He spent a great deal of time going over the house with us. I feel like we're now informed about many details of the house, items that need attention and so forth. The thermal imaging is great and was very useful, helped us confirm a small drain leak was active as well as find some spots in the attic needing attention. The report format is very useful with lots of pictures and descriptions, explanations of what needs doing, not just a checklist. We are second-time home buyers and Phil is one of several home inspectors we've now dealt with. We would definitely recommend Phil as a home inspector.
Pros:great value for price; clear and informative report; very friendly, great to deal with
Cons:The one con is I wish Phil would perhaps "partner" with a sewer line inspection company and set up a sewer line inspection at the same time as the home inspection - I realize we can always choose and set up a sewer line inspection ourselves, but we ended up "forgetting" to set a sewer inspection concurrently - not Phil's fault but another inspector we've used did do things this way and we found it very convenient.
