Buyers and sellers beware! This inspector is over-zealous and sought out imaginary problems on my home. Real estate agents who have been in the business for over 20 years tell me they have never seen such a ridiculous and discombobulated mess of an inspection. I hired the Vice President elect of the local chapter of CREIA (California Real Estate Inspection Association) to review the report and do his own investigation. You would think you were talking about two different homes! The Vice President of CREIA also had a licensed contractor come over to my home two days following for his opinion and expertise. Both concurred that much of

's report was full of inaccuracies and bogus claims, many of which were completely debunked, or just straight up didn't exist. I have separate written summaries addressing the discrepancies from the Vice President elect and other independent contractors in their respective fields. Buyers and sellers beware! This man is a deal

. He was in my 4000 sq foot home for over six hours! SIX HOURS! don't let this guy near your property or any property you are interested in buying or selling. He is a waste of money.

was excellent in all areas. His fee was about in the middle of all of quotes I received but well spent for sure.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was punctual, professional and explained everything. I had 2 little ones running around so I know it was not easy but
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
carried on without any difficulty. He inspected areas that were hard to get to, crawl spaces and attic and found found small flaws. I received the 32 page inspection report that night and was able to submit it to my agent that evening. I would definitely use Mr. Inspectorman (I know, corny) again and will refer him highly!

was professional and did a thorough inspection of a home that we were considering purchasing. We were very happy with the level of detail and his report allowed us to make an informed decision (we bought the house with our eyes wide open... no surprises so far).

was great from start to finish. That's from the initial phone call to me paying for his services. Great job throughout it all. When i first spoke with
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, he was very willing to work with me and we set an appointment for the following weekend.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
showed up before i even did and was on site ready to work right away.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was dressed very professionally and had all tools needed for the job in hand. Great first impression.
During the inspection, I followed
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
around asking every and any question i could.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable and answered with the best of his ability every time or would recommend me contacting someone in that field of expertise. I ever went on the roof and crawled through the crawlspace with him. No matter, what part of his inspection he was conducted, he would stop and answer all of my questions. Very informing.
After the inspection, several hours later but on the same day,
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
emailed me the inspection resulted in a very well written and easily understood document. This was completed in a very timely manner.
Overall, wonderful company and product. There was only one con to my experience and that was on me for not reading further into it. However, if you are interested in having infrared imagining done, make sure to ask for it. It was not part of the standard home inspection. I was under the impression it was and had i known this i may have asked for it.

We worked with
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. He was at the house when we arrived, and got to work right away. He was very informative. Made sure we were informed of everything he found, big or small. He was also very helpful with things that he didn't need to check. He was a very nice guy, and was easy to talk to. Made the experience very stress-free. I would definitely use again, and would also refer friends and family.

He did the report and provided what we thought was a complete report. A couple months after they moved in they cut down a small bush hedge in front of their living room window. A smaller hedge less than 4 feet tall as it didn't block the window. When they did they found wood rot on the window sill as well as a lot of water damage to the walls. There were areas where the chicken wire was showing as well as wood framing. I understand there may be areas where an inspector cannot get to however this was easily accessible and just took a little effort to look behind the bushes and around each window sill. It is apparent this was not done and now is a costly repair. If this would have been found prior they would have had the owners repair it in their counter or lowered their offer to make up for these costs. don't know if this is typical of their effort but I would not recommend or use somebody that misses a large exterior wall that has major damage. When contacted he initially said he would come out and discuss but has since not returned calls. We are sending this to the Realtor and Loan folks who recommended him so they can decide if this is what they want for their customers.

is fantastic! To our delight, we were able to pay by credit card and confirm or change the appointment time online. On the day of the inspection, he arrived promptly and was professional, courteous and friendly thoughout. He came to a house that we were interested in buying to do a standard inspection, but his attention to detail is far above standard. He was there for at least 3 hours and went up onto the roof, into the crawlspace under the house, and into the attic. He inspected every square inch of the house. He was happy to explain things as he was doing them when we had questions, and at the end, he walked us through his findings, pointing out exactly what we needed to address and why.
And then, 2 days later, we got the (56-page) report. Wow! Our four parents, who between them have bought at least 7 houses, had never seen an inspection report that even approached this level of detail. Every single thing that he found that wasn't completely safe or up to code was documented clearly, along with a color photograph and an arrow or circle highlighting the exactly location of the problem. Like any good inspector, he recommended that we contact a licensed professional for any and all repairs, and just based on his report, it wasn't at all difficult for us to determine which repairs were in our DIY skill set. He sent the report by email, as a PDF, which was great because it allowed us to share it with relatives far away whose opinions we wanted to get.
We had truly expected the inspection to turn up some major,
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
problem that would put this particular house in our price range, but it turns out we just found a great deal! I can't imagine that we would have been comfortable buying the house if someone less thorough and helpful had done the inspection - only after
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
walked us through absolutely everything did we feel confident.
Two years later, we have not had a single problem that he didn't catch in the inspection. He even told us the average life span of each of our major appliances, and when they were put in, so that we would have a general idea of when they might need replacing. (Obviously no one can predict such a thing, but knowing whether that expense goes into the 5-year plan or the 10-year plan helped us!)
We also still refer to the inspection report when we need to find a piece of information about our house (for example: our heater quit working, and when I called our home warranty company, I had the inspection report in front of me so that I could tell them what kind of furnace, etc. In case you're wondering whether there was a problem with the heater that
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
didn't catch... nope! It was actually the thermostat that broke.) As a final bonus,
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
continues to send period email newsletters (every other week, and of course we can opt out at any time) with home maintenance tips. Recent tips have included how to clean a drain trap, how to clean a concrete stain, and how to balance a ceiling fan.
My mother-in-law bought a house in Escondido about 6 months ago and, on our recommendation, had
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
do her house inspection. She was equally thrilled with the results. I recommend
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
without reservation!

was wonderful!! On time for the appointment. He went over the house with a fine tooth comb! He was very thorough and professional. Then, when he was finished with the inspection he walked me through all the problem areas that he found and gave excellent, understandable, detailed explanations of what was wrong and what needed to be done to fix them. I was particularly grateful to
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for his explanations since I was doing this without my husband who was ill and who could not help me with the process of buying a house in CA and moving from Iowa.
After the inspection
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
emailed me an inspection report with color pictures that were marked to show me the problem areas specifically.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is proficient at using email for his business which was a real help to me as I was not able to drive the long distances needed to meet with him more than once.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
also offered to be available by phone if we had any questions or concerns. When I returned to Iowa my husband spoke with him so that he could understand the inspection results.
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was very good about walking him through things and answering his questions.
Throughout the last year I got an email from
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
every month with tips on home repairs and information on any recalls on applicances in my home. I love his home repair tips. They are step by step so that even I, who do not have a lot of experience with home repair, could do these things. Definately a value added service.
I would, without a doubt, use
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
again if I ever needed another home inspection. He did a great job!f
