Very thorough work, and honest.
Able Eye meets Eagle Eye for Home Inspection
Charlie provided a very thorough and detailed home inspection for me as a home buyer. I was really impressed with what he was able to find. I had walked through the home twice and did not catch most of the items Charlie noted in his inspection. As this was my first home purchase, Charlie was more than patient answering all my ignorant questions and going over every finding in his inspection. His knowledge of codes and standards was sharp, and his inspection report was top-notch. The value to Charlie's service is incredible. I would have certainly paid more had his rates been higher. I walked away feeling very secure with the home purchase.
Exceeded our expectations
My wife & I used Able Eye Inspections for phase & final inspections of our newly constructed home. We found the owner Charlie to be professional, knowledgeable & personal. His reports were meticulous and found issues that the city inspector missed. Charlie's reports, which included pictures, were emailed when promised. He also answered our questions in detail & in a timely manner. We were very happy with Charlie's services & plan to use him for our 12 month warranty inspection.
Outstanding Home Inspection
My wife and I are considering finalizing the purchase of a new home, and despite the builder's advice that it shouldn't be necessary to have a 3rd party inspection of the home, we went ahead and engaged the services of Abel Eye Inspections, and we are very glad we did. Charlie Ragsdale from Able Eye performed a very thorough inspection of the major Systems in the home – Structural, Electrical, Heating, Plumbing and Appliances. He noted several deficiencies which were unknown to us, especially with the roof. Not all inspectors actually walk the roof, but Charlie did and took several photographs which clearly illustrated faults in roof sealing and flashing and additional flaws which would have allowed water to penetrate into the home. In addition, he thoroughly documented deficiencies in drainage, sealing of windows, door functioning, excessive radiation from the microwave oven, missing fire-rated caulking in the fireplace, and the need for window-opening limiting devices on the second floor for child safety. He also performed a thermal scan which found a leak in the Air Conditioning system. We presented our builder with Charlie's list, and will not close on the home until these issues have been remedied. In summary, Charlie is a very knowledgeable home inspector who knows where to look and who takes his time in doing a very careful job identifying and documenting deficiencies that potential buyer's should know about, in order to make an informed decision on whether to buy or close on a home, and we highly recommend his services to you.

Charlie definitely exceeded my expectations with such a thorough inspection. I will definitely refer him to my friends and family.
Charlie was very knowledgeable and happy to explain things and go over them multiple times if needed. I would highly recommend his services.
Charlie from Able Eye Inspections was great!! He let me follow him around as he went and gave useful pointers for future maintenance on our house. He climbed up on the second story to check all parts of the roof and noticed important issues for us to relay to our builder. Would never have known they were there without having him inspect the property. I'm so happy that I can move into my new home and know exactly what needs to be repaired. The report we received was clearly written and included pictures to help specify certain things. The peace of mind alone is worth the reasonable inspection price. Will definitely use Able Eye Inspections again before our warranty expires in a year.
Excellent inspector. Very thorough!
Inspector was professional and helpful with explaining things. Walked me through the process.
My parent bought a home, sight unseen, and I had to show up for the inspection. The inspector, can't remember his name, was very professional, and acted as if he were the one buying the house. He explained his concerns, and related his opinion on the importance of any fault. I was very comfortable with his trustability.
Very prompt service in regards to responding to pricing inquiries and getting the job done. Charlie was very thorough and knowledgable and took all the time we needed to answer our questions and explain his report. We will definitely recommend him to friends and family as well as hire him for our purchase.
Charlie performed a one-year warranty inspection on our new home, and the experience was fantastic. For my wife and I, this is the first new home that we purchased, and really just wanted the peace of mind that comes with a thorough inspection. I selected Charlie amongst a number of very qualified inspectors, even though he had the highest service fee (though only marginally so) of the group. And I do not regret it for a second! I could could elaborate on how professional he was, how he walked me through explaining his process, and how he took the time to answer questions and explain things on a level that made sense; all of which were true of my experience with Charlie. But I am not going to focus on those things. He is thorough, knowledgeable, accurate, and his final report reflected his excellence. The thing that makes Charlie special is that he is one of those rare breeds where doing things "right" is tied into who he is, with his personal integrity. I cannot verify this, but I'm guessing that he has higher expenses than his competitors, simply because he won't cut corners. That type of professional is priceless in today's world and I would not only recommend him, but I will advocate for him by looking for opportunities to send clients to him. My only regret is that I did not take the entire day off from work so I could follow him around. What I learned in the hour I spent with him was likr having a private home lesson. And far from being in his way, he seem to encourage that behavior and even seemed a little disappointed that I couldn't stay the day as well. My wife and I did not expect for the inspection to "pay for itself," as it was really an inspection to ensure nothing major was wrong before the warranty expired. However I'm already at about break even based on the suggestions that Charlie provided. WOW!
Charlie from able eye inspection did the great job. I hired him for inspecting 2 properties and he spent enough time and put a lot of efforts in through inspection. I also recommended him to couple of my friends and they are also very satisfied with his services.
Very professional, thorough and super informative, offering lots of extra helpful tips and advise for making my new home safer and better cared.
Charlie Ragsdale did an outstanding job inspecting our (hopefully) soon to be new home! At the time I had no idea who or what to ask or expect for a home inspection, I received a quote from him almost immediately on Thumbtack. I was blown away not only by his work but by the invaluable information he gave me while going through the home explaining major immediate needs for replacements and/or repairs, along with current and future upkeep, maintenance, repair work that he recommended. All of which he put into his detailed report • He was on time! • He was extremely thorough and detailed in his work and explanations. • He provided Thermal imaging inspection (included for free). • Sprinkler System Inspection (Optional service for a very reasonable cost). • Explained locations and “how to” on things like proper operation of gas fire place, location of main water shut off valve, what I needed for safe use of electrical outlets in garage and throughout the house, what could be happening behind the walls based on the thermal scans, etc. • Provided Pest Inspection service referral. However, he went above and beyond his service by scheduling them to come out (after the service I scheduled did not show up) that same day and complete the job making sure I had the all reports in hand next day before noon. • Report was detailed with picture and information explains fixes including pictures of how it should or should not look. • Pricing was very reasonable! Thank you Charlie for the awesome service you provided!!!

Timely and very detailed. Answered all my questions and provided an excellent report.
Charlie has a great eye for detail. Able Eye Inspections could also be called Eagle Eye Inspections. Charlie is knowledgeable of the latest standards and code as well as how these standards have changed over the years depending on how old your home is. Charlie uses the latest technology to create a comprehensive analysis of the property. Lastly, Charlie is super patient and willing to go over all the dumb and redundant questions I had. He educated me on many things about home buying as it was my first purchase. Although a stranger prior to the job, I felt like Charlie was a friend after the time he spent with me, and I was able to rest easy on the report of his findings.

The company name tell you what to expect. I was BLOWN away by Mr. Ragsdale's knowledge and professional performance. The presentation and professional attention to detail was far far beyond what I hoped for. If you are going to purchase a home you need Able Eye in your corner. Infer-red technology (he can see through walls people!) and a very pleasant and professional attitude helped me with the typical worries. His knowledge and skill set will not doubt set him apart from any one else in the industry. Expect good things... he DELIVERS!
Charlie from Able Eye Inspection was very thorough and provided great service. Charlie provided me helpful information throughout the inspection.
