Dear Michael & Erin
I want you to meet Phil Gage of Homefront Inspection. Click on his link in the email below to go to his Web page and give him a phone call. The reason I like him is that he does the right thing, not the political correct thing. I have used a couple other inspectors but Phil is who I would use if it were my home. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE HIM. YOU MAY USE ANYONE YOU WANT. I will send you a couple other names or just Google Colorado Home Inspectors.

Dave....thank you and your brother Phil for your outstanding job. The report with the pictures made it very easy to read and understand your inspection. I would highly recommend you to friends and family. Mariano
Couldn't ask for anything better. He saved me from buying a house that was a total disaster. The second house he inspected gave me much more confidence to go ahead with the purchase. Phil lets you know what you need to know as a soon to be homeowner.
Phil was awesome! He was very professional and took the time to answer any and all questions I had. He even answered basic home repair questions that i had that were not connected to the inspection. He was very thorough and pointed out the most minor things. The final report was in my e-mail box within the day. Since the Radon test took additional time I wasn't expecting the report until Monday since the inspection was done on Friday. However i was most pleased to see the radon report in my inbox on Sunday. I would highly recommend Phil for any house inspection. On a side note he let me check out the thermal imager which was pretty cool too.
Phil was early. I have purchased several homes and had several inspections. This was the most thorough and useful. He was professional and accommodating. Best yet.
We Jeff and Elizabeth, 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.
I feel I got more than my money's worth with your inspection!!
I would recommend Dave Gage (HomeFront Inspection) to anyone looking for professional home inspection services. He has been very thorough with his inspections and helped my clients feel confident about any concerns they may have in purchasing a home. I work with several investor’s who want to make sure that there are not any hidden problems that might cost them after the purchase of the investment property. We were able to cancel a contract that would have put my investor client in a bad situation. Thanks to HomeFront Inspections we caught the problem and I gained my investor’s confidence and he is now purchasing several properties.

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, Dave, 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 Dave 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.
Dave was on time, quick, and thorough. He offered a wide range of inspection services, so it was easier to get this stuff scheduled and taken care of all at once. I especially appreciated his years of experience and advice and will not hesitate to use him again. Nathan Fitzgerald
I was glad I hired Phil to inspect the house before I bought it. He found problems that would have cost us a bundle of money had we decided to buy it. I had Phil inspect another house. This one I bought.

Phil was excellent as a home inspector. I followed him everywhere and he answered all my questions patiently and clearly, providing perspective and opinion on seriousness and remediation, and where to go for additional expert advice where necessary. His report was equally clear and detailed, and was provided less than a day after the inspection. He even contacted me a few days after the inspection with another idea about a possible root cause of a damp problem, "because it had been bugging him". Very professional, very thorough, and very pleasant - a great inspector.
HomeFront Inspection did a wonderful job. Phil was very detailed and we would not have wanted anyone else inspector our house. We are first time homebuyers and feel comfortable about our new purchase thanks to HomeFront Inspection. Thanks again for everything!
I just wanted to thank you for your thorough and excellent inspection reports - I am very impressed! I've never seen so many pictures in a report. It was very useful to me since I am out of town and was unable to attend the inspection. Mary highly recommended you and I will certainly keep you in mind for future clients. I only wish I could have met you in person.

What a great Inspector! Phil was very professional, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. He pointed out things that we didn't expect to see on a 4 year old house. His reports are concise and the pictures are excellent to substantiate what was wrong with the house. He was on time, easy to schedule around our time and well worth the money. We would highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection!!
Phil is the BEST Inspector around. He inspected a house for us and found some "deal breaking" issuse- like enough mold to call in the EPA- We would never have been able to see it. It was the best money we have ever spent. We then hired him again to inspect the home we hope to raise our two boys in safely. We will be hiring him again soon for the inspection of my mom's house and another friend's house. Thank you so much Phil!

Thank you for taking the time to do such a thorough inspection of my potential first home! I greatly appreciated your professionalism and attention to detail. I would recommend HomeFrontInspection (Phil and his inspectors) to any home buyer; especially those concerned with receiving the best deal for their dollar. Thank You M. Eatherton - Denver
I contacted Mr. Gage very late on a Monday evening while I was on travel in Oregon and asked if he could inspect a home I was considering purchasing. Mr. Gage went way beyond what I expected by agreeing to conduct the inspection the next day. His report was exemplary and was helpful in my being able to get the home owner to perform some work prior to my purchasing the property. Thank you Mr. Gage

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
Phil is the BEST inspector in Denver metro. We wish we could give him more then 5 stars!!!! Great communication, put up with all of our questions. Took pictures with his digital camera, loaded them onto his tablet PC, had a report finished, printed and emailed at the end of the inspection. Great pricing, great guy, great company. Needless to say, we have no worries about this home. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!! A++++++++++++++ HIRE THIS INSPECTOR!!!!!!!
Bill Cox - Wheat Ridge
Phil was excellent. The home is very old so he took extra time to be extremely thorough. He went into attic, crawl spaces, etc just to make sure there weren't any surprises later on. I would recommend him to others.

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!
Every review I've read through this website and Tom Martino's referral list website was spot on how Phil and his brother Dave completed the inspection. Very professional and very thorough. They answered every question I had which I really appreciated. 2 homes were inspected and done by them. I WILL use them again before I sell our next home! Craig K.
