I researched several home inspection companies/inspectors and found that Space City Inspections received most favorable reviews and were located near the home I wanted inspected. I called and Ed Fryday answered and was able to inspect my home within a few days of my call. We agreed a time to meet, and Ed arrived a couple of minutes early. Ed talked me through his inspection process, and he took the time to show/explain to me what he was inspecting and observing as he performed the inspection - very knowledgeable and informative indeed. He finished the inspection within the estimated time he gave me at the start of the inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection, Ed made sure that I did not have any more questions, before the departed. I enjoyed me time with Ed. Later that evening, I received a well written, well documented report by email, that contained not only his observations, but also photographs and web links to internet sites where I could find out more about several different topics that related to what he discovered during the inspection. I will definitively use Ed on my next home inspection need and absolutely recommend him for home inspections.

We highly recommend Space City Inspections! Ed was punctual and started right on time. He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and professional. Ed explained everything that he was doing and why he was doing it. We had the report (which covered all of the items we saw in person with pictures and it had additional details and resources for each item) the same evening in which the inspection was done. We won't buy another house in the area without obtaining his services first!
I called up Ed to inspect a home before I purchased it and I was so happy I did! He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He explains everything in great detail as you go. He is so good at his job that you might not want to buy a house after he finds every single thing wrong with it lol. Genuinely a nice person, hard working and a professional for sure. Would highly recommend to anyone.
We found Ed to be punctual, congenial, reliable, knowledgeable, reasonable in price and efficient. He knows the housing code in detail and showed each area of the inspection to our full understanding before moving to the next area.
I called Ed on a Thursday requesting an inspection and he was able to do it in two days, which was amazing. He was very professional, took thorough notes, and explained everything he found to me. He showed me the pictures he took along with his notes, and showed me where different things are located in the attic. As a first time home buyer, his inspection made me feel at ease.

Good Morning Ed,
Thank you for providing such a comprehensive and thorough inspection report. One of the best I’ve ever received. I plan to use you again with my business and we will definitely let others know of your professional and exceptional service.
Ed did a home inspection for us on Monday morning and we received a complete, thorough report with color photos on Monday evening . He is clearly an extremely experienced and highly qualified inspector. We have bought and sold six homes in Virginia and in Texas, and Ed is the best home inspector that we have worked with. I cannot recommend him highly enough. You might find someone cheaper, but I don’t think you will find someone better.
Ed, Thank you for your prompt scheduling, thorough inspection and detailed report. The report thoroughly fleshed out the details of everything we discussed while you were here. I have no questions and am very satisfied with your responsiveness and work product.
I made an online request for a scheduled home inspection on a Sunday, which happened to be Mother's Day, expecting a response later that week. Ed emailed me shortly after that same day and a few emails back and forth, we had set a date for the inspection. Ed contacted the realtor for the property and confirmed the date would work, and he met me at my home on our schedule date. He was very polite, knowledgeable, and very honest. There were other options for inspectors, but we chose Ed because of his great reviews and length of experience. My wife and I are very pleased with Space City Inspections and encourage others to use them for their home inspections.
As a young first time home buyer I have found Ed Friday to be some one I could trust and rely on. He was transparent and knowledgeable with any house issues that were found. Given a quick notice he came through and got the job done. His customer service was great and he even went out of his way to help me out with my work schedule! In conclusion his report was well put together, he answered all my calls/questions, and made sure I was taking care of!
A fantastic experience with Mr Ed Fryday. Knowledgable, professional, and great suggestions and explanations.
As usual your inspection was a great experience. We not only learned so much about the home we were about to purchase – we were educated on the criteria for inspection. We thank you for spending the time to do a thorough inspection while educating us on the technical aspects of the home systems.
What a great experience. Ed Fryday of Space City Inspections is top notch in all of the work that he does. His inspections are thorough and meticulous. He inspected the new home we were buying, and caught several problems the builders and their inspectors missed. Ed is courteous, professional, and honest in his dealings (a rarity these days). The inspection itself took about three hours and I had a full written report in my inbox that very evening, with photos of all problem areas. If you are looking for a good home inspector, either for a new or existing home, look no further.
One of the best professional experiences I have had. Ed is informative, thorough, patient and polite. The inspection was about 3 hours. He encouraged me to follow along so he could explain what he was looking for and what I need to know as a new home owner. Very informative and patient, the best for first time buyers!
I was purchasing a new home and I picked Space City Inspections based on the reviews I read. I did my homework and looked at other inspection services as well. I met up with Mr. Ed Fryday on 2/11/19 in the morning it took about 3.5 hrs, I have to say I was very pleased with his work. I did not feel that he rushed the service instead took his time to show me things and explained what he was doing. I even appreciated his recommendations and the importance of knowing your home. I am pleased with the report and how he submitted photos pointed out the concerns with recommendations. Not to mention inspection and report all done in one day. The website was very helpful as well. I have to say it was worth the money I spent. I especially like the fact that he recommend the buyer be PRESENT during the inspection he was very open to you asking questions. I will recommend his services to friends, family and anyone who ask. Thank you again Mr. Fryday for your services.
Contacted Ed Fryday on the morning of November 21, 2018 and we were able to schedule an inspection for noon that day. Very grateful as we are in the option period! Ed was very professional and invited my wife and I to follow him throughout his inspection, explaining the inspection and encouraging questions. The inspection report was very detailed and contained pictures. My wife and I were very happy with his service and would gladly recommend him!
Well if you want an honest professional detailed inspection? I would recommend to go with nobody else but Ed and Space City Inspections. This guy is a pro.
Space City Inspections (Ed Fryday specifically) is the best inspector in the Houston metro area. He is extremely professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. His report was very detailed and prepared within hours after completion of the inspection. He has a considerable understanding of the construction process, materials, and building codes. I am glad I did not risk my home purchase by using a less-qualified inspector or by trying to find the lowest fee. I will certainly use Space City again for my next home purchase.
We had a great experience with Ed at Space City Inspections. He was thorough and professional. We had the report the same evening in which the inspection was done. TOP NOTCH SERVICE!!
We have used Ed for three inspections. The first was a home he told us to absolutely run from. The builder / owner had built the home and had no idea what he was doing and spray painted things to make them look new. Needless to say we took his advice and when we found a new home he conducted the inspection on the second home. Now that we’ve outgrown that home he recently did our inspection and of course if we ever buy a home in the future he will do that one as well. Super nice guy, very prompt and hard working. He’s not the cheapest, but he is one of the best. When buying one of the largest purchases of your life do you want the cheapest or the best? I’ll go with the best.
