We were very pleased with the thoroughness and professionalism that Greg demonstrated throughout the entire inspection process. He explained all findings in an easy to understand way and took his time showing us areas that we could address, as well as answered all of our “silly” questions with patience and understanding. He even gave us extra time at the property so that we could do some measuring! It was great to not feel hurried or “talked-down” to during this part of the process and made sure that we had his contact info in case anything else came up that we might need assistance with in the future. We highly recommend Accurate Home Inspections!!

This is our first experience with having a home inspection and not sure exactly what to expect I’d say Alan Swack did an excellent job, very thorough and professional! Easy to work with. He prints out a detailed report along with pictures highlighting the problem areas he found. Would highly recommend him! We will be using him to do radon testing in the near future. Thanks, Alan!!

"Timeliness, Quality, Customer Service
The inspector was very thorough and explained everything in plain language. He seemed well versed and was very pleasant to deal with. I would use Accurate Home Inspections again."
The owner Alan Swack not only did my home inspection but also my sisters as well. Friendly, courteous and knowledgeable in his craft! His trained eye found thing I would never have guessed were even a problem with the home!

I’ve worked with Alan Swack since 2006. He’s always been fantastic to work with. Thanks for everything, Alan!

I’m also glad I had the radon testing done because the home is over actionable limits for Radon. It turns out that is actually quite common in the Iowa City area!
Did I mention Alan even did the inspection on a Sunday when the homeowner and I were available!! KUDOS!
If you are looking for a home or building inspector, look no further than Alan Swack and Accurate Home Inspection. We recently purchased our first home and Alan performed our inspection. I can’t imagine working with a more thorough and conscientious inspector. Alan welcomed me to attend the full length of the inspection, which is of tremendous value, especially to the first-time home-buyer. Alan explained everything and answered all questions thoroughly and non-judgmentally. The inspection report that Alan provides is exceptional – it is highly detailed, yet easy to read and understand for the uninitiated. The report allowed us to purchase our home with confidence and peace of mind. Thank you Alan for being one of the most important parts of the home-buying process!

This is the first home I have bought and was nervous about the inspection process. I also had a tight deadline and had made multiple phone calls to try to meet the real estate contract. Alan called me back right away and was able to schedule my inspection with Greg a week earlier than any other inspector.
Greg did an excellent and thorough job. He inspected our new house as if he was going to move in himself. Greg noticed small details that could lead to long-term problems and even pointed out a silly light switch that wasn’t a problem but had the potential to be annoying. As a first-time home buyer, I really appreciated being involved in the inspection process and the excellent service that Accurate provides. Highly recommended!

This was my first home inspection. Alan recommended that I attend, and I was very pleased that I did! It gave me peace of mind to know the home I wanted was a good investment.
Alan Swack is very knowledgeable and provides a great personal experience. He even made me aware of several ways to save money with small home improvements. I strongly recommend his service.

When buying my townhome, I had to get a home inspection and fairly quickly too. I signed the purchase agreement on a Friday with a clause stating I had to have inspection, report and deficiencies noted in writing to seller by next Friday. On Monday, I received a couple of referrals from my lawyer but they were all booked up for the next 3-4 weeks. When I did a Google search Alan’s business was listed #3 with a 5 star rating and deservedly so. I went to his website and was able to book an inspection for the very next day! His online scheduling system is great! I was able to see available dates and times and scheduled it right when I needed it. Alan performed my home inspection and did a wonderful job. He was very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I attended the inspection with him. He explained everything and made recommendations for things that may need to be addressed in the future. He also furnished a report by email within 24hrs. I seriously recommend Accurate Home Inspections. 5 stars. Thanks, Alan!

We were under some time pressure to have an inspection done in the next three days. Alan squeezed us in, but that did NOT mean the inspection was a “quick and dirty” job. Rather, Greg spent over 2-1/2 hours going through an nearly 100 year old home, and another half hour explaining what he found. The written report came less than three hours later! Greg was professional and personable. He not only explained what wasn’t up to snuff, but also what the implications might be, even for items that were not considered of safety or health importance. My husband and I were there throughout the entire inspection and we tried to stay out of the way, but sometimes we’d interrupt with a question, which Greg always took the time to answer. Oh — there wasn’t a garage key in the lock box on the day of the inspection. Greg came back four days later to finish looking through the garage and sent us an email update. We would highly recommend Accurate Hone Inspections and would give them 6 out of 5 stars if we could!
