Home Inspecting reviews in Charlotte
First, he claimed there was visible water seeping into our crawl space and there was a moisture problem that needed to be remediated. He didnt even do a moisture reading. We had a professional moisture company come in and totally refute this claim. The crawl space is bone dry, there is no water seeping though the brick walls, there is no moisture on the ground, and no signs of any moisture on the insulation/wood beams, and the moisture reading was 10% to 13%, which is very good. It appears that because the bricks were discolored from possible prior problem, the inspector never even touched the claimed wet spots, jumping to a false conclusion.
Next, he detected a few small hairline fractures in the brick foundation of our 28 year old house and said they had to be repaired. A later inspection by an engineer dismissed this inspectors recommendation.
Next, he claimed one of the seals on our window had leaked and moisture had gotten into the window. When we inspected that claim we found he was wrong again. There had been slight splatter from painter who had painted the door. Inspector should have been able to see the difference between fog and beige paint, and should have felt the windows to verify this claim.
The inspector also made claims and remediation recommendations on the structural support system and the ridge vent opening of our new roof. An engineer we talked with said unless he's a licensed engineer, this inspector is not allowed to make an assessment on structural matters. Our understanding is that he's not a licensed engineer. I will update this review when we get the engineer's report on this matter.
As for the roof, it was installed by a reputable roofing company that warranties their work. We are having them come out to explore this inspectors claims, but its highly unlikely that they would have installed the vent with too small of an opening for air to flow through.
Basically, this inspector does shoddy work, over extends his area of expertise, cost us time and money to refute some of his claims, and created a lot of headaches for our transaction. I would strongly suggest you avoid using him.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
