Thank you Brook for the great Home Inspection for the Lo's!


Your inspection was very good in that it pointed out the important needs such as the GCFI outlets in wet locations and the needed

repair within the electrical panel which were all taken care of prior to closing. 

Appreciate your time to do inspection, and obtaining

the report just as efficiently.


Your company will be on top of the list!


Thank you,

Sheri Hamilton,

We were very impressed with how thorough and conscientious Brook was when doing the inspection on our family's home in Kaloko. The report was turned around very quickly and was well done. Would definitely recommend this inspection firm based on the experience we had.

I recently used Kona Coast Inspections for the inspection of a condo I was considering. I needed to set something up on very short notice and Brook Taylor was very accommodating in doing so. He did a thorough job on the inspection and also was responsive to questions with regard to some of the issues. I would definitely use Kona Coast Inspections again in the future.

Meg Howard



Brook is the ultimate professional and very knowledgeable on all aspects of home inspections. Since he was also a construction contractor, he knows all of the indicators of a quality home and where all the potential problems might be hiding.

 I would definitely use Kona Coast Inspections again in the future.

When we bought our home we used Kona Coast Inspections. Brook was able to provide us with a very detailed report which we used for the needed repairs. He is very knowledgeable in his trade and was able to explain defects in great detail in a way that we could understand. I was grateful for his excellent quality of work and positive attitude.
