It is unfortunate that I cannot give
an A+.
was friendly, informative, and thorough. This was my 4th home inspection as a buyer, and the service provided by
was by far the best.
- She spent a good 3 hours on a 2600 sqft house.
- She inspected everything possible- basement, attic, crawl spaces, roof
- She pointed out items that she could not advise us on directly, but told us the next steps to take (possible asbestos, solar water heater)
- She took lots of pictures (some inspectors still don't, and it makes a big difference!)
- The report was clear and well-written
- Even after the report was delivered, she answered questions we had, and provided additional advice on how to investigate one of the potential issues she identified.
- The free copy of "How to Operate your Home" was a nice bonus too.

We were in the process of trying to purchase a home in
that was an older home (built in 1928). Given the age of the house, we weren't sure what to expect and what would be found upon inspection.
Prior to the actual inspection date, we were able to give
a call to ask him what the scope of his inspection would cover. He called us back that same day in the evening and spoke with us for a good amount of time, listening to things that we might be concerned about (e.g. possible knob and tube wiring in the house) and answering our questions. He set up the radon test on Fri. and honored the Angie's list coupon for that as well.
On the day of the inspection, we met both
and his trainee,
. They were both very professional. They arrived early to the inspection and started as soon as they were there, so when we arrived, they already had some information for us.
was extremely thorough, pointing out many details to us throughout the inspection that we should be aware of, both as potential issues to address or to follow up on and as things that we should just be aware of when purchasing the new home. He patiently answered our questions, and in one case, even went back to double check on something outside and in the basement based on a question that we had asked about something we observed inside the house. He also provided an extremely detailed inspection report that was very clear, well-organized, with many pictures to illustrate what he was referring to, and also had a great summary at the end so that we could quickly review those items that were potential safety or major issues that we'd want to follow up on.
We had a great experience working with
. We felt much more informed about the purchase we were making, we were able to follow up with the sellers on a couple of the items that needed to be remedied, and we feel a lot more comfortable about knowing what we're getting into with our home purchase. We would definitely recommend
to anyone who is looking for a good home inspector and would consider hiring him again in the future if the need arises.

was great! My wife and I were buying our first home, and wanted to make sure we got a good, thorough inspection.
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
spent four hours at the house, was happy to have me follow him around and answer questions, and had a clear, thorough and methodical process. He looked at the structure of the house and the systems in it, and picked up on several issues we wouldn't have found ourselves until after moving in. We received his report -- a PDF file with many pictures -- by email the same evening. He also included radon testing as well. I was extremely satisfied with his service, and would recommend him highly.

Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did an incredible job inspecting a home we had under agreement to purchase. She was unbelievably knowledgeable and thorough. Over the course of four hours,
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inspected the property, crawling in and out of crawl spaces, noticing the slightest evidence of a past leak or faulty connection, and pointing out any potential issues, both big and small. She also gave us very helpful information about the home, tips for maintenance of the home, and overall guidance on being a homeowner of an older house. Her report, which arrived quickly via email, included a huge number of detailed pictures -- in fact, when trying to get some quotes on work the house needed, I would forward parts of the report to various vendors and they were able to see from the pictures alone what the issue was, how extensive it looked, and give a preliminary estimate -- which was very valuable during the quick turn around time for inspection-related purchase price off-sets discussions.

was also quick to respond to both follow up emails and calls with questions about the inspection and report that we thought of later in the day, over the weekend, and into the next week. Having seen a few home inspectors in action, I can say without reservation that

's inspection was the most thorough, detailed, useful, and all around impressive. Even my realtor, who sees home inspections by different inspectors practically every day, was impressed.

I got a strong recommendation for
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
from others, so my expectation was high. Well,
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
surely lived up to, and perhaps even exceeded, the expectation. He spent 3.5 hours on the property, thoroughly inspecting every place throughout. He was very patient in explaining things to us and answering our questions. What an educational experience for a
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
person to learn about a house from an inspector who is so nice to work with.
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's report is very detailed, with many pictures and repair recommendations for things that need future attention. He even made it clear what type of trade people we should seek for repair: whether it is a mason or a landscape person, or a contractor/handyman, etc. After the inspection, I had several questions on the report.

was very responsive and helpful. I am very happy with the inspection. Highly recommended!

It went smoothly and professionally throughout.
I really appreciated his walk-around with me while he explained the significance of each finding and possible alternatives. His color-coded report details every single finding as well as its significance (such as safety versus energy efficiency). He even noticed that my recent basement French Drain project may have caused the radon level in my basement to change, so I did a radon test through him (an extra $80 on top of the $420 fee for my 9 room house). He located spaces that mice had used to enter my house and even found old termite damage and taught me how to test to see if the termites had come back. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable and very personable. The whole inspection, plus completion and delivery of his printed report took 3.5 hours.
I got exactly what I wanted, and more!

We had an EXCELLENT experience with
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. In addition to a professional and thorough evaluation of our prospective home
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
provided us with a basic lesson on every major element (e.g. water heater, burner, roof, electrical, etc.) This was extremely valuable - especially, as first time home buyers.
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was also very responsive with a handwritten report that we walked away with and an electronic version e-mailed to us that night. This was especially helpful in setting up some additional assessments we needed of the electrical system. His attention to detail will easily save us thousands in future expenses. I would use him again in a heartbeat.

He was very good. I think he has some affiliation with
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
Materials Co-Op. His price was low. There was nothing flashy and nothing fancy about him. He was just down to business and super thorough. He is great for new time home buyers. He told us exactly what in the house would need work in the next few years and what we would have to keep our eyes on and things like that. He was just outstanding. We had called him when we bought our second house, but he wasn't available then. We will definitely call him if we buy another house.

Good, quality home inspection. Freindly and professional and helped identify a potential sill issue that was successfully negotiated with the seller. The inspection report was available about 8 hours after the inspection via the online portal. Easy to forward and/or print the report. I would recommend

to others.

We were very happy with how thorough
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was. He crawled into every crawlspace he could find and has an eye for things that I would never have thought to look at. For example he noticed that moisture was getting under the siding due to improperly sealed installed window frame because there was a tiny discoloration of paint that I could hardly see when he showed it to me. Watching

work is like watching some kind of a house detective work a crime scene. After the inspection
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
answered all our questions with patience and understanding. I would recommend him for a home inspection to anyone considering a purchase.
