Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
performed a home inspection for us. The process from booking the appointment through getting the report back was all smooth, professional and prompt. We arrived at the house about 10 minutes before the inspection was scheduled and
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was already getting his ladders setup to inspect the roof despite the rain. He was helpful throughout the process, made sure we were asking questions and gave clear and useful answers. He found a number of issues with the house, but was great at putting them in context for us so we could understand what was really problematic and how much effort it would all take to fix. He was also super fast getting the final report back to us - in fact, we got it later the same day. I would certainly use his services again and would happily refer others to him.

was AWESOME! He met us 30 minutes early on a Saturday - we made an appointment 1 week in advance.
He started with the exterior front and sidewalks. Then he inspected the back exterior and roof. He always climbs up on the roof and took pictures so he could show myself who remained on the ground.
We then went on to the basement. All the while
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
looked at everything and explained why it was fine or why it wasn't fine. He was able to give us general price estimates and how big or small he considered a repair. He advised us if he would personally replace something right away or if a fixture still had a year or two of useful life left in it.
He explained in depth about clues that give away moisture leakage and how firewalls work. I felt like I had been given a free class on home safety and general construction.
My husband spoke with him for almost 25 minutes after the inspection and
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
answered every single one of his questions very thoroughly and patiently. It was clear that
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
scheduled plenty of time between his other job and was not going to leave until we were ready.
The termite inspector came right away as well and did his work in under 45 minutes. He was very prompt and professional too.
The only caution I would give is when you consider getting a radon test. We opted not to but it involves keeping the house sealed closed for 2 entire days, so if the sellers are still living in the house its pretty much impossible.
We are first time home investors and plan on buying other properties. We will continue to use
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
in the future and
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
if he is available.

"Our realtor connected us with
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and we were able to get a Saturday morning appointment right away (within a week after our offer was accepted). My husband and I were very impressed with
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
-- he was knowledgeable, thorough and professional throughout the whole process.
Three hours into the inspection,
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
discovered many serious problems (structural issues, termite damage, corroded plumbing pipes) that were not disclosed by the seller, and made us question the quality of the contractor who had renovated the home several years before.
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was the one who suggested that we stop the inspection, and he would only charge us for a partial inspection (even though he was scheduled to do the full) while we negotiate with the seller on the sales price and maybe get a structural engineer to come in and give an estimate on repairs before we go any further.
At this point, it is possible that the sale of the house is going to fall through because of what turned up in the home inspection-- my husband and I are relieved that we had
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
guide us through the home inspection and save us from potentially spending a lot of money on repairs. We will continue to look for a home to purchase and will definitely be hiring
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for any future inspections. We also would recommend the company to anyone looking for a home inspection.

"Our home inspector was
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and he did an amazing job. He went through every spot in the house and took his time explaining everything to me as we went. It was a 3 story row home in the Fishtown neighborhood. It took about 3 hours to complete. We spent a lot of time in the basement going through several things that were concerning. He identified several things that needed to be repaired, and differentiated things that were not needed, but were recommended. It was a great experience. Punctual, professional, great value for the money. Would highly recommend this service to anyone needing a home inspection prior to purchasing a home! We also had the radon tested the same day, which took about 20 minutes to set up in the basement and we had the results back within a week. The full report from the home inspection came back about 24 hours later. Very fast turnaround for the amount of detail that was included!

"I found
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list and picked him, because he seemed the most fastidious and unbiased. My husband had all the contact with the company, but he said that they were polite and gave us a good price estimate as well as had zero problem with us wanting to be there for the inspection. They were able to schedule an inspection with us for the following week, which was exactly when we wanted. I didn't bother contacting any other inspection companies, because I trusted my research. He was waiting for us when we arrived 5 minutes early for the appointment, so I would call him very punctual. He introduced himself and went over the contract limitations, then left us to read over and sign the paperwork while he inspected the roof.
We then followed him as he inspected absolutely everything about the house. He explained everything as we went around and kindly answered our questions to the best of his ability. I appreciated his patient and respectful character. My husband and I are young and buying our first home. Some people tend to talk down to us, but
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did not. I was also impressed by the way he dealt with the home owner. He owner let us into the house and then followed us around eavesdropping on the inspection, which I am told is not appropriate or the norm. The owner seemed a little insulted by some of the things
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was saying that contradicted him, like the exact age of the furnace, water heater etc. or how recently it looked like the roof had been done.
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
just mostly ignored him and kept doing and saying exactly what he was going to do and say. After about a 3 hour thorough inspection,
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
went around by himself again with a checklist while we waited. The owner then told me that he had never seen an inspector who was such a pain in the ... with checking everything and didn't realize he'd take so long. That solidified the fact that I'd picked a good inspector, because you want them to nitpick everything and take several hours. I guess the owner had never had a good inspector before!
When
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
left, he told us we could call at any time if we had any questions at all. The report was emailed to us as a PDF in less than 24hrs. I knew what the format would be from reading the sample report on their website, but it's still impressive. It is 22 pages long and very user friendly and organized. He took pictures of problem areas as we were going around, which were included to clarify things. The only thing I would say bad about it is that the pictures could have been higher resolution as they were a bit pixely. At the same time, you could tell what he was talking about, and he added red arrows on the pictures to point at exactly what he was referencing. In addition, he included a kind of home owner's manual and referenced the repairs he suggested in the manual, so we could look it up if we bought the house and know how to fix it or get it fixed. That was what pushed the decision in his favor when I was reading reviews in the first place. I've started reading the manual, and I can tell it's going to help me a lot.
I'm hoping that we don't need another home inspection for the next 10 years or so, but if we do, I'll definitely call this company straight away.

"Our home inspector was
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and he did a terriffic job. He arrived promptly and was very thorough. My realtor had suggested that we not use them because she said that they had a reputation of being a knit-picker but tht is exactly who we were looking for to do our inspection. We could decide which items we would raise up with the seller, but I wanted to know all of them.
The inspection took all afternoon to complete. We walked through every inch of our house and he pointed out even the most minute details. Our home was new and he also pointed out maintenance items we should pay attention to in years to come. Their price was a little higher but well worth it. I would definitely use them again.

"When I was pregnant, I had thought about getting our condo tested for lead. However (silly me!), I assumed that when we first purchased the place, this was completed in the inspection (wrong!). Fast forward ten months...while getting an estimate from a painter several weeks ago, he told us that he wouldn't complete the work, which was going to require sanding, until we had an inspection done due to the fact that many of Philadelphia's older buildings contain significant levels of lead in the bottom layers of paint. Panic set in! This is the last thing the mother of a crawler wants to think about!
After reading the stellar reviews for
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, I decided to see if I could get an appointment for an assessment. I spoke with
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, the owner of the company, on the phone and he was able to schedule an appointment within days. On top of that, he was willing to come into the city at 7 AM in order to work around my daughter's nap schedule. Before he even came out, I was impressed with the level of customer service!
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
arrived at 7 on the dot. He listened to our concerns, explained the testing he was going to do and the instrument he was going to use, and was extremely diligent with the work. He was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in addressing our questions/worries...a true professional (and a personable one!) in every sense of the word.
I would recommend
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and his company without any reservations.

I used this company because my family had used them in the past with good results. The office staff was very accommodating from start to finish. They do a good job of collecting and giving information. The consultant came out after we worked out a schedule date that worked for everyone. He was on time, very professional, polite and thorough. He started by going over a packet of what he describe as “useful information” which he said was ours. He took the time to explain to my husband and myself as well as my realtor and the sellers’ realtor what he would be doing. The office had already done that, but we appreciated it anyway and so did my realtor. He took a long time looking at the house. He had a lot of equipment and what turned out to be a lot of experience in performing this kind of work.
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and my husband
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
really hit it off from the moment he found out my husband was also a contractor. Of course, all the boy toys didn’t do anything to dampen their almost instant bond. He pinpointed a number of issues, some of which our home inspector had showed us and many, many more that we were not made aware of. He found mold under the drop ceiling in the living area of the basement and an area that was wet, but invisible to the naked eye. The camera he had used was amazing – like ghost buster’s stuff. The owners of the house were brought down at that point and he explained that there was a leak coming from outside and some mold had developed. He also showed them the mold on a number of antiques they had in the dining room. He said that some of the issues weren’t serious and explained that the homeowner could address it themselves or bring in a mold guy and he explained what needed to be done (hot water and soap and some coating designed for mold). He assured my husband and I that it was so minor and the other concerns he had were more important. He found mold on the sheathing in the attic that was not easy to spot until he pointed it out, another thing our home inspector missed. He explained the principles of ventilation and why this had occurred and how to correct it. My husband got it, I got most of it. He raised issues about the stucco outside. He said although this was not a stucco inspection, but rather an inspection for mold that the windows and the stucco had a direct impact on indoor air quality. Boy, do I wish I had listened to him. My husband was concerned by what
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was saying, but I LOVED this house and wanted it. In my mind it was perfect. We purchased the house and moved in and thought all was well until the spring when we had heavy rains and we found a little bit of water on two window sills. Long story short, we called
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and after much anguishing over the price of a stucco inspection we bit the bullet and had it done by their building company.

"I first research Nick

Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
Inspection on the website and after reading all of the good ratings I decided to call an speak with Nick. Nick was very professional on the phone and promptly set up an appointment with me for
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
10, 2012 at 9 AM. On that date,
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
from D-Tech Environmental arrived first before 9 AM and quickly went to work on looking over the home. Nick arrived on time shortly thereafter and began an extensive review of the home leaving no stone unturned. Nick answered all of my questions and then some. He took several photos and was detailed in his explanations.
I was truly impressed with Nick's professionalism and expertise. He spent 4 hours at the property and delivered via email to me the next day a detailed report of his findings. I want to ensure anyone that is looking for a home inspector that you would not go wrong in choosing Nick
