Casey was a great inspector and answered all of my MANY questions I had on the home we purchases.  Very happy with his work and the time he took working with us and our place!

Casey Patten performed a pre-purchase home inspection for us in Owatonna, MN. Casey's thorough and professional approach to his work was immediately evident. Moreover, Casey conducted a thorough and complete inspection, and provided us with a very comprehensive and informative report. Casey's great work allowed us to make an informed decision. Casey is a consummate professional and wholly committed to providing quality service. I would absolutely and highly recommend Casey to anyone who is seeking the best in home inspection services.

As a business owner myself, I appreciated Casey’s professionalism.  His response was quick, he was willing to adjust his schedule to meet my tight timeframe and his integrity was evident from our first correspondence.    I was very pleased with Casey’s attention to detail, his knowledge and his detailed report.   Although I have many years of building & remodeling experience, I decided to hire Mr. Patten to inspect the lake home I was purchasing.   By having someone else inspect the  property I was assured that I wasn’t overlooking anything.  I was surprised at how reasonably priced the inspection was, especially given the fact that it was about 60 miles away.   The report was detailed, easy to understand and complete.    I can’t imagine anyone investing in real estate without having it inspected and I highly recommend Casey Patten.

Dear Casey,

I am very grateful for your inspection for our upcoming sale. We are not only excited about the house, but we also feel as if we know everything about it. Not one stone was left unturned as you did your inspection. You were conscientious in taking time to inspect everything, provided an incredibly detailed report with excellent pictures, and was very available for questions when I had them. Thank you so very much!

Casey provided a first class pre-sale inspection of our home.  His knowledge and detailed report allowed us to make minor changes and improvements that helped in the showing and ultimate selling of our home.  Casey's feedback led to a clean inspection from the buyers with NO additional repairs requested.  Thank you Casey for your help!

I had an extremely positive experience with my home inspection done by Casey Patten with Root River Inspections.
Casey was unbelievably thorough.  I definitely got my moneys worth.  Casey took the time to look at every single corner of the house I was having inspected in Rushford, MN.  I couldn't have asked for more.  Casey was also very professional and honest about everything.  I will recommend Casey Patten and Root River Inspections to anyone I know that is looking for an inspector.

My experience with Casey Patten of Root River Inspections was excellent. Mr.Patten was very informative and pleasant to deal with from the first phone contact and throughout the inspection process.  His attention to detail was very commendable as he left nothing to question. He was able to point out areas during his inspection that could easily been missed by the untrained eye. The Realtor I had hired to work with me during this time even commented on his thoroughness and attention to detail. The report done at the end was easy to read and is being used as a guide during our remodel. I would recommend Root River Inspections to others when buying property. Thanks Casey,

I was very pleased with the inspection.  Casey did a great job with the inspection and went above and beyond my expectations.  I was impressed with how thorough he was inside and out.  Even though it was winter time, he still climbed up on the roof and did an inspection of the roof.  I was thankful that he shared information with me as he went through the house and told me things to look for. Overall I would give him an A+ and would recommend him to friends and family.  Thanks Casey!!

Thank you so much for the promptness of this report! We really enjoyed going through you for the inspection and are so glad we chose you for the job.  We really learned a lot during the inspection and were pleased with how thorough you were and that you took your time to really look the home over well.

Thanks so much Casey.  Your inspection was thorough and truly appreciated.  I cannot tell you how appreciative I am for your information.  It truly helped me make an "informed" decision.  I would definitely recommend your services to others.  Thanks again.

I realized I never sent the signed inspection agreement back to you. I thought you would probably want it for your records.
Thanks again for all the work you did. We're moving forward with the purchase and feel confident that we can prioritize the needed repairs and updates on the home thanks to the great inspection you provided.  Have a great week,
