Deb and Tim have done two new build inspections for us in a year. I chose them based on their wonderful reviews to inspect the first home I fell in love with. Unfortunately, that home had problems with water in the crawlspace. I would have never have known, and the builder was not willing to make changes. So we did not buy and it took 8 months for me to find another house I loved. Deb and Tim did another excellent review (I thought Tim was going to dance about how well the grading had been done for this house). They also researched a couple of updated building codes to be sure everything they said was accurate. Both of them knew how much this meant to me, but they also wanted to be certain that the house was the best it could be.

Debbie and Tim are AMAZING! We had scheduled with another inspector, but I like doing my due diligence. I gave Debbie a call and she was so professional and friendly. Their reviews spoke volumes and we decided to cancel the other inspector and go with Pillar. They spent so much time with us explaining things and just getting to know us. They were so kind to my 13 year old with questions that he had.

The inspection lasted a few hours and was SO thorough. Debbie made sure that I knew that I could call them with any questions or any other inspections we may decide to get in the future (radon, mold etc.).

I had spoken with three other inspection companies and would absolutely recommend Debbie and Tim. On a side note, their cost was less, covered more and came with more experience than the other companies I spoke with.

Debbie and Tim are great at inspections and go the extra mile. You get two inspectors for the price of one with them as they team up on the inspection. Tim’s knowledge as a prior builder really helps him identify any problems your potential house may have. Debbie is very technical with her part of the inspection and makes sure you understand the results. They both really care about their work. They also get you your inspection report on the same day so you immediately know the condition of your potential house. They are very professional, and I would highly recommend Debbie and Tim for your home inspection.

Pillar Premier Inspections (Deb and Tim) is hands down the BEST HOME INSPECTION TEAM ON THE PLANET! We have bought and sold many homes over the years, all over the country. We have come across all kinds of home inspectors and I have to tell you that I walked away from this one saying….it’s about time…where have they been my whole life? Seriously! They are the REAL DEAL! They are the most knowledgeable, passionate, hardworking inspectors I know. They work great together and each had their own jobs going on. They talked to us pointing out positive things about our home that helped in our decision making and of course pointed out things that had issues. They were so thorough and detailed which was imperative for me because we have had inspectors in the past that did not do their job so to find Pillar Premier (through our realtor) was such a blessing! It was such A RELIEF to have them in our corner taking such good care of us. They truly cared about doing a good job for us! I could see their professionalism and knowledge and I was so grateful…beyond words. It gets better, they were there 8 hours x2! Yep! All for us and they didn’t miss a thing! I wanted to be made aware of everything and be left with the choice of what to hand over to the seller to fix. They made that choice easy. For many years Tim had been a high end home builder, so he obviously has an eye for how things are done. I was grateful because our home had just been remodeled and he was able to tell us that it was done with great quality. He pointed out many reasons why. Deb had been down in the crawl space (she is woman ) and said that it had extra vapor barrier which made us feel better. I asked Deb if she could suggest a list of qualified contractors and she gave me a great list of contacts. I just can not tell you enough how very pleased we are with their services. They went above and beyond the call of duty. If only every home inspection team were required to have their work ethic, and talent…! Their knowledge and ability to inspect the totality of our home and also to educate us on the process was phenomenal! I wish we were buying a lake home next to them! I imagine they would be pretty amazing friends, too! I rate them way over 5 stars!

We have used Pillar Premier home inspections for two different homes in the Lake of the Ozarks. Being from out-of-state, we felt that having a competent home inspection was vital for our financial interests during the home buying process. Both of our inspections were performed by Debbie and Tim and took approximately 3 hours. The inspections are very thorough and they document even the smallest deficiency for the buyer. I cannot understate the professional and expert approach that both Debbie and Tim used in doing their work. They explained items that they found and the report is well written with explanations and with plenty of pictures explaining things that were also verbally told to us. I highly recommend Pillar Premier Inspection services for a home inspection whether you are buying or even selling a home.

~ Jay Danninger

We are knee deep in boxes and making preparations to move, so I must submit a very brief review:  The home inspections which you provided on our existing residence at Twisted Oaks Camdenton Missouri and our new residence at Sandalwood Lebanon, Missouri were without a doubt, the best and most thorough home inspections we have ever seen.  The reports were thorough and to the point.  Certainly worth every cent.

I wanted to pass on a few comments of appreciation to Pillar Premier Inspections, LLC regarding our newest condo purchase in the Lake of the Ozarks. The timing of your response for my needed services was critical because we had close on two condos within a short period of time due to our departure for Florida. Tim quickly completed the inspection details and had some excellent recommendations for us. He made the transition easy and carefree. Gaining our trust in him, we asked Tim to oversee the unit while we winter in Florida. He continues to give us reassurance that everything is in good hands.

Thanks to Tim’s keen background, the inspection of the new unit revealed some essential pre-purchase repairs that helped us negotiate an acceptable purchase contract. We are now on our way to having the needed repairs done and managed by Pillar. We trust that Pillar knows the best and reasonable-priced companies at the Lake for the needed repairs because we have seen some of the results before we left for Florida.

We just wanted to let you know that we have been very pleased with Pillars Inspection Services.  This is the second time we have used Pillar and we came back because you are so thorough and professional!  Everything is explained so that a nonprofessional can understand what is found and recommended at an inspection.  You have been a pleasure to work with, are trustworthy, the cost is very reasonable for the services provided and we would definitely use you again if needed!  Thank you for making this part of the home buying experience so easy!

~ Amy & Steve Pendleton

If you want a thorough, honest and professional inspection, Pillar Premier Inspections is the company to choose!
We had the pleasure to work with them on our recent home purchase in The Lake of the Ozarks. The attention to detail and their willingness and ability to answer any questions about the inspection process was very comforting.

These are very trustworthy inspectors that you can count on to give you a highly detailed, honest inspection of your prospective property.

~ Bob & Stephanie Feiler

After reading all these reviews I can only concur this inspection team exceeded our expectations. Not only did they leave no stones unturned, they were so helpful in giving advice with their vast knowledge of the construction industry. We will definitely use them on future purchases and highly recommend them to anyone that needs inspections.

~ Doug & Betty

We utilized Pillar Premier Inspections (Debra & Tim) to conduct an inspection of a townhouse that we were considering to purchase. Both my wife and I were very pleased with the thorough inspection that they provided as well as the professional advice that they provided us with. I would and will recommend to all of my friends that are needing a home inspection to utilize Pillar Premier Inspections. Thank you Debra and Tim.

We know that we can rely on Pillar Premier Inspections to help us make a wise buying decision. We have relied on Debra and Tim for our condo purchase and most recently the purchase of our family home. We can rest assured that there will be no surprises that may cause us a case of buyers remorse when Pillar does our inspections.

~ Ramona and Wayne Moon

My husband and I had the pleasure of choosing Pillar Premier Inspections to do Inspections on our current home. Now first of all, we looked for a few months before we purchased our home and Pillar inspected 3 homes for us. Thank goodness we made a wise choice in putting our trust in them. They saved us thousands of dollars by pointing out issues that could have been devastating if we had not been aware before we purchased. If you are looking for a professional, ethical informed company to inspect your dream lake home, do yourself a huge favor and hire Pillar. Only then can you make a truly informed decision on what to spend your hard earned money on.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and to let you know how impressed I am with your attention to details!  I have seen many reports over my “35” years but hands down this is the best one!

~ Scott Cooper

Debra and Tim Cribb with Pillar Premier Inspections exceeded our expectations! I am a realtor in Kansas City and work with home inspectors on a daily basis. Their professionalism from day one with their email, phone call to confirm and online payment was top notch. Once we met them we felt completely comfortable asking them any questions we had and Tim was very good at explaining to my husband items that he could easily do himself to help maintain the home. The report and pictures they took were very thorough and their recommendations were very well trusted. I would highly recommend their services!

~ Kim Faris

We can’t begin to thank you ? for the fantastic job you two did. We feel your inspection saved us so much money and hardship! The inspection was already scheduled for our current property otherwise nobody but you would doing the inspection. We will recommend your company to anyone who is looking to buy a house! Again thanks for everything!

~ Rhonda Mahan

Your company exhibits the highest level of professionalism. You will definitely be our choice when we find the right home.

~ Ken Paschke

I went on and on with Kati Hess about your outstanding service and the stark comparison of your excellent service versus the company that preformed my last two house inspections here at the lake. I’m sure I will see you both at the next house and thank you both it was a pleasure meeting you.

~ Mark Olson

Debra was very responsive when we called from another state requesting a moisture test to be completed on a local commercial building.  The testing was done professionally, at a reasonable cost, and without disturbing the tenant.

We would use Pillar Premier Inspections again!

~ Karen Wells

My husband, Kevin, and I would like to express our satisfaction and gratitude for the inspection you did on the home we plan to purchase. Your company was referred to us by the realtor and by a family member as well and we could not have been more pleased by how it turned out. We found that both of you were very professional and up front about every step of the process. Our inspection report was very informative and helpful to us in the next phase of the buying process. We have never been through the process before and you all made it very easy for us. I have already given your information to someone who will be in the market of buying a home soon and will continue to do so.

~ Kandyce & Kevin Kraft

Debra and Tim were very thorough, easy to work with and they got out to the property very quickly once our inspections were scheduled. We used them to inspect the first house we were going to purchase and they uncovered tens of thousands of dollars worth of repairs that we would have otherwise not found.

When we passed on that house, we had them inspect a second house and they helped to guide us through the inspection report & repairs for the seller to make. We had a completed inspection report the same day the inspection was done. They were very professional but also honest with us as potential buyers of a new home.

Buying a house is a big investment and it is important to have an inspection company that is thorough in uncovering all of the flaws. We highly recommend them for a professional, quick, honest and reliable home buying experience.

~ Julie Pangborn

Tim and Debbie are exceptional people and they provided a quality service for my client. They offered a very thorough inspection of the condo that my client is purchasing and took the time to answer any questions that she had. We are impressed with their Recall service and have already started receiving updates.

~ Jonas Farrell, John Farrell Real Estate Co

Our realtor referred my wife and me to Pillar Premier Inspections during the purchase of a villa at the Lake. Words cannot describe how pleased we are with the inspection services provided to us by Debra and Tim.

Our experience started with Tim calmly asking us – what concerns do we have with the property? They were there to serve us and not just quickly go through the house and get out.

Debra and Tim explained their findings to us and answered all of our questions thoroughly. By the end of the inspection, Debra and Tim felt like family.

We ended up having Debra and Tim re-inspect the property twice. Both times they adjusted their schedules to get it done, including coming out on a Saturday and re-issuing their report on a Sunday. Their reports are thorough, well documented with pictures and arrows and easy to understand.

Debra and Tim are extraordinary people. We could not be happier with their service and we strongly recommend Pillar Premier Inspections to any homebuyer.

~ John & MaryJo Stiglich

We have used Pillar Premier Inspections on 2 homes we were looking at purchasing this year. There thorough inspections saved us from making 2 large financial mistakes on both homes. Tim has thoroughness and knowledge on construction of the homes and it is what you are looking for in an inspector for your purchase. He takes time to show you some of the important issues he is finding during his inspection. From his construction background he was able to explain what was needed to fix the problems he was finding. If he did not have the answer to the problem he would know whom to contact to get the answers. When the issues were found during the inspections with both of the homes we were looking at. Debbie and Tim were willing to help line up contractors from the area to give us quotes on having the problems corrected. With us not being from the area this was of great help to us for negotiating the final sales contract.

If you want an inspection company that looks at a home like they are buying it. Then you want Pillar Premier Inspections working for you. We are so thankful that they had our best interest in mind when doing their inspections. You will not regret hiring them to protect your investment.

~ John & Kathy Rieth

I feel very confident buying this home after seeing the level of professionalism, attention to detail and the high quality of your report.

It was a pleasure to meet all of you and I will certainly recommend your company to others whenever I have an opportunity.

You are an A ++ tool for someone buying a home.

~ Jim Sherrow

My brother and I are very pleased with your service.  As we venture into our new business any unexpected problems with our property would have been highly disappointing.  Your thoroughness put us in the drivers seat for renegotiation and put us in the right frame of mind to move forward.

I will highly recommend Pillar Premier Inspections to anyone I know interested in buying a property.

~ Jeff Huffman

I really appreciated the extra effort you put forth to explain to me the issues surrounding the septic system, especially noting that all is fine with the system today, but that based on your knowledge that a system upgrade or future repair could entail the need to replace the system entirely. Also, knowing that the land available was not sufficient to support a new system was clearly important information that we, as buyers, needed to be aware of to make an appropriate buying decision. Had it not been for your experience and knowledge, we could have had a significant problem in the future. This was important in our negotiations with the seller, which ultimately resulted in our agreeing to an easement on additional property they owned that could support a future system. Also, your findings were also important in helping us negotiate a number of other matters that needed correction. Thanks for everything.

I also very much appreciated the detail you showed during the process and in your report, and especially in your willingness to – go the extra mile – in explaining to me and my wife exactly what the findings you were to include actually meant. Not being one that is familiar with home inspections, it gave me a real sense of comfort knowing that you were acting in our best interest and, at the same time, trying to educate us on our options. I believe this speaks volumes as to the professionalism that you show in your careers. In the service industry, professionalism is a must and you both demonstrated that you are professionals, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Your advice was invaluable.

~ Jeff Carlstedt

I wanted to thank you for the exceptional inspection of the Condo.  It gives me confidence in having two people performing the inspection along with over 40-years experience in building homes.  I also appreciate the time you both took to walk me through everything.  It was great to work with two people that are very professional and very client oriented like you both are.  You have a great thing going and outstanding business model.

Thanks again for you time and the increased level of confidence in the place we are purchasing.

~ Jason Kling

I highly recommend Pillar Premier Inspections for home inspection, water or radon testing. They are professional, thorough, and very easy to work with. Also, they are prompt and quick to respond to any questions. We have had a very pleasant experience working with them.

~ Janet DeLand

After getting a contract on our new house, Debra and Tim, did our inspection.  I have never had a home inspection before and was a little worried about spending the money before the close.  Let me say this was the best money we have spent in the whole process.  Debra and Tim both are extremely professional and knowledgeable.  They spent the time with us while at the inspection to teach and explain things.  Not only that but with their inspection in hand we were able to get twice the value in concessions than what we paid for the inspection.  These are things we would never have noticed until we were after closing and would have been out of pocket for us.  I highly recommend using Pillar Premier Inspections.

~ Eric Rainey

My husband and I chose Pillar Premier Inspections at the recommendation of our realtor and we were delighted. The Cribbs were remarkably professional. I was at our potential property with them as they were inspecting the house; my husband was not able to come with me. Both Tim and Deb explained everything they found to me in very understandable terms as well as their professional opinions on what needed urgent attention and what could wait. This was extremely helpful once the hard copy of our inspection arrived via email the next day.

As first time lake property homebuyers, it was extremely helpful to understand issues about septic tanks, wells and docks. To their credit, they pursued a suspect septic tank issue when the flow test failed requiring several extra hours of digging and work. Their diligence saved us having to replace the septic system. We will certainly recommend the Cribbs to others that are looking for a thorough, professional home inspection.

~ Diane & Bob Brockmeier

Outstanding Inspection Company like no other at the Lake! Detail oriented and great resource for solutions. They provided timely reports with photos to fully explain issues. The warranty provides additional peace of mind for my clients.
I highly recommend Pillar!

~ Debbie Grant

As a carpenter for 22 years – my first thoughts were to do the non-state required inspections myself. Then after considering the purchase price of water front reality, I thought I would try a professional inspector.

My results were as follows, . . . Could not be happier, when looking at something your falling in love with and have dreamt about for years your objectives may be skewed. Debra and her team caught at least 10 things I did not see, and with a competent/detailed inspection sheet I had a leg to stand on when asking the seller to correct the items.

The state inspected items are critical that you use a competent inspector. I got the same results as before — we got a updated septic with NON structural and structural items fixed with out argument from the seller.

The price I paid for the inspection was far out weighed the amount of items I had corrected with out cost to me by 5 times the amount.

The service was fast, friendly, and answered emails/question very quickly.

Will use again if needed.
