Easy to make appointment by email or phone. Professional and responsive. On time. Brought own shoe covers. Very thorough inspection. Found out a few spots that were missed by previous home inspector (referred by realtor at home purchase). Provided email and printout of inspection reports.

was great. He was extremely professional and courteous. My wife and I don't know too much about houses, and he took the time to explain everything in detail. We were glad he took that extra step. We would definitely use

We were some of the first inspections Ed did (in fact, he was still setting up his software, that's how early it was). He was thorough and meticulous. I've had previous inspections last no more than 90 minutes and miss a lot of things (my best friend is a general contractor, and I've had him double-check inspections in the past), but Ed was there -- in the attic, on the roof, in the basement, above the garage -- for almost twice that. Since we bought the house, I don't think there's a single repair that's been unexpected (except for the washer failure; hard to predict that one). Ed's attention to detail and experience with all aspects of repair and renovation make him (in my opinion) perfect for home inspections. If that was one of his first inspections, I can only imagine how much better he's gotten.

Inspection was completed. Inspector said smoke detectors are required in all bedrooms to be up to current standards, this is not true. The inspector recorded that a door did not latch properly when it was obvious that the door had a full length removable mirror in the back. Door latches fine without mirror. Inspector's radon detector results were extremely inconsistent and indicates that his equipment may be faulty. Cited a safety factor on the deck that is about 12" off the ground stating a high railing is required. Inspector is extremely nitpicky about inconsequential things such as the rubber guard on the garbage disposal that is completely intact. House was inspected 1 year ago by an inspector that trains other inspectors and all major issues were resolved. Inspector noted lock on window missing this is not correct, all windows have locks. He states no carbon monoxide detector in house however there is a carbon monoxide detector in the dining room. Inspector's report was full of errors and as a result buyer backed out of the deal. In my opinion, due to all the errors in his report, this inspector is not reliable.

met with members of the board of our condo association for the property inspection, spending significant time educating us on our building and answering all of our questions re maintenance. It was incredibly helpful for us, since none of us have really had the job of property maintenance/management before. It allowed us to get a good understanding of our short-term needs as well as general maintenance going forward. The written report we got was comprehensive, easily understandable, and incredibly helpful in prioritizing the work that we need to do to the property. To the extent that we have had questions since the inspection several months ago,
Palmer Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has always been available to help answer them.

's professional knowledge combined with his accessibility and responsiveness makes him an ongoing resource for us, i.e., we would hire him for similar inspections every year or two, to do a future reserve study, and/or as a consultant on specific projects. (And when I am ready to move, I will certainly hire

to inspect any home I would consider purchasing!)

I have to say, I was impressed with the professionalism with Mr.
Palmer Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
of
Palmer Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. The inspection was informative and documented in a professional manner. The inspection provided me with enough insight to proceed with the needed repairs of the home prior to closing. Additionally, special thanks go out to him because, he had to go to the home twice because the realtor failed to show up the first time. I know this to be true because I set-up the appointment. I was under a short deadline so, he worked hard to fit me into an already full schedule. Thanks again for a everything!

We chose

to come out and inspect a single family home we are purchasing, at the recommendation of our realtor.

came out for the inspection, he was on time, was very professional, and explained everything to us in
Palmer Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's terms as he went along. He took the time to both point out issues he found as well as answer all of our questions. He also made it clear which items needed immediate attention, versus those that could be done over time.
Overall he was extremely thorough as was his report. As promised it was emailed over later that evening and everything was explained in detail along with detailed pictures.
It was a great experience for a first time home buyer, and I would definitely hire them again.

We hired
Palmer Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to inspect a home we put a bid on. The house looked clean, but we wanted a professional opinion anyway. He promptly arrived at the scheduled time. He started with a very detailed description of what the inspection would include (and what was not included). He encouraged us to stay with him during the process, and ask as many questions as we would like. He went up on the roof and took several photos with his iPad so we would not have to go up there. He went through the garage, basement, kitchen, laundry, all baths, all bedrooms, basically every room in the house. He did a complete walk-around of the exterior of the house, and notes issues with gutters, grading, landscape problems, etc. In the end, he came up with a good sized list of "issues", but he was very careful to point out which were minor items and those that needed immediate attention. In the end, the list of significant concerns was small, and we decided to buy the home. We felt

was very thorough in his inspection, sparing no detail. He also took the time to educate us on the various systems in the house and took the time to answer all of our questions. At the completion of the inspection, we received a very detailed printed and digital inspection report. Extremely satisfied with everything about the services.
