If there was a way to give more than five stars Turn Key Home Inspection would deserve it. When I purchased my home in Youngsville Jimmy was recommended by my realtor who said he is knowledgeable and thorough with every aspect of an inspection, and that's exactly what I was looking for. He was very professional with his inspection, and he explained everything so I could understand it. Thanks Jimmy, good job!

James is a true professional in his field. First of all, he made himself available on very quick notice and was more than happy to accommodate me. He spent a great deal of time performing the inspection and really wanted us to understand his findings. We walked with him throughout the house and he made sure to explain everything in detail. He would often make recommendations on improvements and repairs. You could tell right away that he is an expert. At the end, he summarized everything that he found and was concerned about during the inspection. His official report was great and very thorough. I am so glad that I chose James and Turn Key Home Inspection! I would highly recommend using him!!

Jimmy was very accommodating and was able to set up an inspection with very short notice. He was very thorough in his inspection with lots of attention to detail. His report was very useful in working through punch list items before closing on my new house. I highly recommend Jimmy’s inspection services.

Jimmy was so thorough during my home inspection. He took me along to show me his areas of concern as well as the things that he liked about the structure of the house. He left no question unanswered. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need and have already done so a few times.

Alyssa Devillier

Mr. James is BEYOND amazing at what he does. He is so awesome I used him to inspect all 3 of my houses. I would refer him to the WHOLE WORLD if I could. He is ALL about the customer. He is very very honest. He will also come back out for a small fee to ensure that what he recommend fixing is done properly. I have learned something new from him every single time he has inspected/re- inspected any of my houses. He is amazing. Thanks so much Mr. James for everything that you have done for me. I really really appreciate it.


No stone was left unturned. Very honest, polite, and professional service. Would definitely recommend Turnkey to any potential homebuyers.

Mr. James was highly recommended by people I trust and using his services was a great investment in purchasing our home. I have used Turn Key Home Inspections on two properties so far and have been extremely satisfied with the thorough inspection he provides.

He will make sure you understand in plain terms what issues you should take into account and will provide a report far more detailed than others I have seen. He is the only inspector I would use in this area.

I was nervous about buying a home and finding an inspector that would do their job and when I tell you he went above and beyond, I’m not even exaggerating. He even would stop and explain things he has found along the way. And once he sent me the report, when I had questions I was able to call anytime and he would get back to me as soon as he could. I would definitely recommend him for a home inspection!!

James Castania did a wonderful job with the inspection of the home we were buying. He was able to schedule the inspection within days of our request and his inspection was incredibly detailed and thorough. Not only did he inspect every inch of the house inside and out, but he also explained every problem in an easy to understand manner. He had confidence in his diagnosis of different areas from his decades of experience but he didn't hesitate to recommend further inspection from specialists in the areas he wasn't 100% certain of. Very impressed and thankful to have found him!

Thanks again for your help.

We have never purchased a home before and the whole experience was new to us. One of our friends referred your company to us. Thank you for allowing my husban to follow you during the inspection. He was very pleased that you took your time to answer his questions. We received the inspection report that night and went over the report together. I like that the report was sent to us by e-mail, it allow me to look at it again the next day when my realtor call me at my job. I have never had a home inspected before, But I would not buy another home without one. The report was easy to read and the pictures was also very helpful in showing the home owner just what we what repaired before we would agree to purchase the home. We will recommend Turn Key Home Inspection to all our family and friends. James, Thank you for your hard work, it saved us lots of money and headaches. Sue & Tommy

James, thanks for emailing me such a detailed inspection. The pictures with the arrows are going to be very helpful to my fiancé since he couldn’t be there for the inspection. I like how you listed the defects, what should be done to fix them and gave an estimated price to fix them. This inspection not only gives us the piece of mind that there is no major defects of the house but also what we can ask the current owners to fix before we purchase the house and what we don’t mind fixing once we own the home. Thanks for being very detailed in your inspection and patient in explaining everything to me. I will definitely recommend you to any friends or family members who are thinking of purchasing a home. Thanks for the free t-shirt too! Nina

Dear James James, I would like to thank you for the inspection your performed on my property. This was my first property inspection and I did not know what to expect. Your professionalism really put me at ease. You keep me involved during the entire process, making sure that I had a complete understanding of what was going on. You further reassured me that in case I did forget anything, you would have everything detailed and outlined on my report. I did receive my report within 24 hours, just as you had stated. I was impressed because it was very detailed, organized, and the photos were well illustrated. Your love for what your do shows in your work. You definitely have a customer for life and I will send referrals your way. Thank you once more. Kym A.

Dear James Thank you Mr. James Castania for doing my inspection. You were very professional and you told us everything that we needed to do to help us better our new home! Again thank you so much and we will recommend you to our family and friends!!! Travis Bourque and Brandi Dautreuil 10-9-10
