Home Inspection Services

John Mcloughlin of International Inspection Services LLC, Windermere,  USA : (407)-666-3279 UK : 001-407-666-3279 I would have no hesitation in recommending John, with the inspection he did he found every minor defect, he was quick and efficient with the report, first class service. B.N.

Mr Mcloughlin provided a professional service when we were building our new home in Florida. We would recommend him to others interested in such a service. R.S.

John Mcloughlin did a good job, was very straight forward to deal with and well worth his reasonable fee for the inspections he undertook. I would use him again.  J.P.

John Mcloughlin carried out a 1st class survey which was extensive and well documented, and I thoroughly recommend him.    Regards, John

Owner at Weston Hills


P J's Handy Man Services, all Four Corners areas, 352-988-3852.  Mobile: 352-404-9046  Paul has proved himself to be reliable, trustworthy and very good at his job and as a result he now looks after all the routine maintenance  on all our homes as well as dealing with the many repairs that crop up daily in this business.  No job too small nor a problem.  He will do his utmost to repair almost anything and all at a very reasonable cost which helps us to keep our charges to homeowners down.  I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Paul's service to anyone.

Andy Gilchrist, Mid Florida Villas

"When getting maintenance and odd jobs done on our home, we have a few trusted tradesmen on whom we can rely to turn up when expected and do a good job. For our villa in Florida we had to start again, with predictably disappointing results. This turned around when one of our tradesmen moved to Orlando. Fortunately, Paul is an experienced builder, who can turn his hand to most things. He has performed a number of jobs for us over the past few months. It is really great to know that we have someone we trust in the villa, and who can be relied upon to complete the work to a high standard."
