Todd was extremely helpful. I am a first time home buyer. Todd was patient, personable, and has the heart of a teacher. Never did I feel that I was being a bother to him for being curious and asking questions. He was thorough in his reporting, and more importantly for me, I feel I am better off as a home owner after learning so much from him.

Todd did a home and termite inspection for us on 2/3/23. He was thorough, knowledable and encouraged questions, which I really appreciated! He found a structural repair that the sellers didn't disclose, which was one of the deciding factors for our withdrawal from the contract. We will be calling Todd when we find another house.

Todd did a great job for us on two homes. The first one he discovered major issues which were not disclosed. It would have been a disaster for us. We had to pass on the house. The second one which we ended up buying, he discovered multiple minor issues which we were able to get the seller to agree to fix all the items. Great job and thanks Todd!

Todd helped explain everything in the report to me! Moving from Florida to WV comes with some differences and he laid everything out for me, and eased my mind! HIGHLY recommend!

It's been 12 years since I've used them. I've shared their name and number to several friends and family over these 12 years. I'll even pull out the inspection binder they gave me to show them the quality of work.

Todd Ripka recently inspected a home we were considering purchasing, and his Inspection Report was thorough and detailed, with answers to all our questions...including a personal video tour of the house and its repair issues. Todd was simply superb on all counts!

Jon Laskin

Todd was fast, friendly and very knowledgeable when I asked questions. Highly recommended. I got a home / termite / mold inspection combo and the price was much lower than if I paid for all 3 separately

Fred F

Todd was awesome and thorough with his inspection. He was extremely helpful and went above and beyond with his report highly recommend

Kyle Gray

Todd was prompt, courteous, and extremely thorough in his inspection. I asked him no less than 1,000 questions during the inspection, and he patiently answered and explained each thing I asked. He spent nearly 2 hours examining the home and went over all the pictures he took with me before he left so that I would have a good idea of what the report would look like. I had the report back in less than 24hours. I highly recommend!!

Todd conducted a home inspection for us today. He was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. He took the time to explain each item inspected and how to conduct any needed maintenance. Todd made it very easy to understand how to keep our future home in good condition and gave us trust that we are making a sound purchase decision. We highly recommend Todd and Advantage to anyone needing a home inspection. Very professional!!

Todd is incredible . I couldn't imagine calling anyone else when it comes to home inspections . He is so amazing at educating home buyers during the inspection process to help them better understand the findings . You won't regret hiring him!

We have hired Todd several times now to do home inspections for us on houses we have been looking to potentially buy. And I cannot say enough good things!! He has always been extremely professional and attentive to details, he always does his best to answer any questions I have, and if I had something specific I was concerned about he's always sure to go over it with me. He gets the inspections back to us same day, and makes sure to highlight any major concerns in his inspection overview. We've always gotten clear communication from him and been very easy to work with! While I'm hoping we are able to close on a house and we don't need to, if we need further inspections in the future, we are absolutely going to be continued repeat customers!

Todd did an excellent job doing my first and second home inspections. After the first home I was going to purchase fell through in the final stages of the buying process, I got back on the market immediately, found another house, and didn't hesitate to contact Todd to do the inspection for me again. His response time to book an inspection is very quick and he showed up both times exactly when he said he'd be there. He's extremely professional, thorough, and helpful in recommending people to contact/actions to take to correct the findings in his reports. The finalized PDF report includes very detailed notes/pictures on every aspect of the home, top to bottom. Would recommend him to anyone looking to ensure that such a large investment is well worth the money you will put in to your next home!

I highly recommend Advantage Home and Environment Inspections! Todd Ripka was incredibly nice and easy to work with. He did two different home inspections for us. He was extremely professional and provided our inspection reports within 24 hours. He additionally took the time to talk on the phone with me after the inspection to review and answer any questions that I had. I will continue to use them in the future and highly recommend this company!

Todd is an ALL-STAR!! I was recommended to him by several people for a home inspection for my dream home and I'm not surprised that he's left a string of happy clients along his way. Firstly, scheduling was a breeze. We had to reschedule due to that one crazy ice storm and he came out on a Saturday to meet me. He was very knowledgeable and talked me through everything that was wrong (and right) with my soon-to-be new home. He was able to tell me a timeline on when I needed to fix each item and explained just how each thing would be done. He even crawled into the crawl space to make sure everything was okay under there! That alone is worth five stars because that thing is tiny, dark, and scary! My report was very detailed and he didn't leave off a single thing.

Fast-forward a month or so later, my lender randomly decided - the DAY before closing - that I needed to do termite remediation... before I could close! Todd and Advantage to the rescue! He worked with me into the night to have someone (who also turned out to be amazing) lined up for the next morning so I could close in time! At that point in the process, I was paying $30 for every day past closing (I was already two weeks past) in order to keep my rate lock and Todd saved me at least a week more of daily payments! He knows everything and he knows everyone. I could not have better things to say about this man and this company! I'm now in my dream home with a very clear view of my upcoming projects and timeline. I feel so safe and secure in being able to trust Todd's expertise.

My first experience with Todd Ripka went extremely well. I'm very impressed, comfortable, and satisfied with his both his professional approach and his thorough execution of the inspection. He prioritized explaining to me the process and significance of each step of his evaluation, ensuring my ability to understand the importance of paying attention to every detail.

Todd did an excellent job, was very thorough and answered any and all frivolous questions I had and took time to go look at every item I wanted to have examined. I would definitely use their services again in the future.
