Unbelievable service and an unbelievably patient person to work with- if everyone did a job as well as
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
does his, Angies List wouldn't be in business!
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
genuinely loves what he does and it shows the entire time you're with him.

I am a difficult person to impress as I'm a perfectionist and it was clear that
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is also one himself. The inspection started outside where he discussed in great detail what is currently a very small problem (soil buildup against our garage due to a concrete slab). This would have been easily overlooked by a less thorough inspector since he dug down in a small space between the slab and garage to reach this conclusion. Inside the garage this was impossible to see because of some shelves/benches. The structural wood is not yet damaged, but this would have cost a significant amount of money had it gone unnoticed for much longer.

I think what sums up our experience was his inspection in the house at the very end of the 2.5 hours. We had hit every room but the attic and he showed no signs of hesitating to go up the stairs on an 85+ degree day- something that other inspectors I called said they do only upon request and for additional money. I got so hot that I had to go downstairs after 15 minutes for a break. He stayed up for another almost 10 minutes taking pictures and looking closely at the condition of the roof given an end of life shingle job. All of these details from the attic were captured in the paper report that arrived the next day.

The only possible ding against his services iis that all of these stellar reviews make him a hot commodity! Scheduling was a little difficult, but our requested timeframe was very short notice so it was expected.

Someone mentioned that he is expensive and he most certainly is compared to other inspectors, but after working with him it's clear that you get every penny's worth in peace of mind during the very stressful home buying process.

Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was wonderful. He was willing to schedule a Sunday inspection on the preceeding Wednesday, to accommodate conflicts from my work travel. He showed up early to the inspection to start looking at the outside of the house, and was thorough and meticulous throughout the entire inspection. We followed him around during the inspection, and he was happy to not only answer our (many) questions, but also gave us tips on what to look for and how to maintain the home properly once we had it. (The inspection also came with a book about how to maintain your home; thus far it looks good, but we haven't had a
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to try any of its tips yet). He was always very clear about what he could and couldn't find in an inspection, and was actively interested in hearing feedback about his assessment. He spotted some poorly done construction on the basement support beams, and recommended we call in a structural engineer. The engineer (found on Angie's List, not through
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
) confirmed everything
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
had spotted, and only gave us additional information about how we could fix the problems. The only mistake he made was thinking that the 3 inches of wall insulation might have been less than code, but when we checked with the town hall and confirmed that it was OK, he was very welcoming and interested in the feedback. The electronic report from the Sunday inspection was in our in boxes Monday afternoon, and the full set of forms arrived in the mail Wednesday.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
also came back with no additional fee to inspect the electrical panel, which had been blocked during the first inspection, and had a half-hour turnaround time when we requested additional electronic copies of the report. (We were probably lucky about when we requested it).

I contacted
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
based on his excellent record in Angie's List, and was not disappointed. He was very accommodating with schedule (we weren't sure the builder would be quite ready for the initial time slot, but
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
kept it open for us, and fortunately, we were ready).
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was very polite and informative when I called him to schedule the inspection. He showed up on time, and started his exterior inspection immediately. He covered the whole house, meticulously testing every system as he went. He was very thorough, and was very informative throughout the process, giving me plenty of tips as we went about maintenance issues that I should be aware of. He also had a very detailed eye, which helped me generate the punch list for the builder. Finally, he also had to deal with the builder himself who was on the premises during the inspection. While the builder is a very reasonable guy,
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job of querying the builder's choices where appropriate.

was so good. He even detected a problem in our roof for us. Thanks to him we were able to get the problem fixed immediately. He did very detailed work and took the time to notice any problems our potential house may have had. We had previously had a bad experience with another home inspection guy so it was great for us to have found
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and see that he was so wonderful to work with. He deserves all good
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
if you ask me. I would recommend him to anyone I met.

Absolute A+ work. HIGHLY recommended.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inspected every corner of the house inside and out. He took over three hours at the house and did not charge for travel time. He used a variety of testing devices to discover problems, moisture meter confirmed suspected water leak behind wall, carbon monoxide meter with probe revealed CO leakage from boiler, miscellaneous electronic tools confirmed non-grounded circuits and outlets, etc. We learned more about the various issues in the house than we would have ever discovered (and later paid for) on our own. His fine work enabled us to save more than a dozen times his fee during final price negotiations after the inspection.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is a man of integrity, very knowledgeable, and has a passion for excellence. This is the second house we've had inspected by
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. In both cases we were extremely satisfied. He delivered very detailed inspection reports (Acrobat PDF via email), each with about 20 photos, on the evenings of the inspections.

Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
(''a registered professional engineer'') failed to perform a thorough job of inspecting the home we were buying. He missed a number of obvious problems with the house, some of which are potentially dangerous and need to be addressed right away. We bought the house based on his assessment and now it has become our responsibility to fix the problems that he missed. Strangely, he was most concerned about the type of paint we should put on the walls and what kind of carpeting and counter top we should install. Also note that his inspection report was only 3 pages long and contained a bunch of irrelevant information. We are first time home owners and had no idea what to look out for. Thankfully we had the house re-inspected and got a much more detailed assessment of the home. Unfortunately, we are spending several thousand dollars of our hard earned money to fix
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's mistakes. Please think twice before using his services or recommending him to other people.

, of HouseMasters, was recommended via a contractor.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
reported that
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has retired, but they were partners. I liked
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's service so much I hired him for the second inspection as well. Due to
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's extensive knowledge and good communication skills, I felt comfortable with him right away. He answered all of my questions respectfully and truthfully.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
brought a computer and printer with him and printed our results right away. The type of radon test he performed provided results within 48 hours, which he called in to me. HouseMasters provides the printed report in a consumer info binder with CDROM with homeowner tips. We didn't shop around for rates, so not sure if this is really expensive or not. We were charged $425 for each home inspection and $250 for radon inspection. It was worth it to have piece of mind about our home value. I would recommend him to anyone.

Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
are amazing inspectors. The first property we saw, an old
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, had many problems which were not obvious. They taught us as they went around what to look for, and presented us a very professional report that night! The second inspection went very well. Thanks to them, we knew what to look for when seeing other properties! I would highly recommend using them!!

He was very thorough, explained the home''s systems and often how to maintain them (wonderful info for first time buyers). He provided a detailed analysis and even returned twice on his own to double check problems he thought he may have seen or review items he was unsure about. I felt very comfortable asking him questions and asking for his opinions about the purchase and soundness of the home. He was very professional and prompt. Would definitely recommend, especially for a novice like myself.

The inspector,
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, is very professional. He showed up 15 minutes early. By the time the buyers showed up, he finished the inspection of the exterior and started the report. He paid great attention to tiny details and conducted the inspection in a very thorough way. He was able to survey termite damage from a remote corner of the basement. He is very knowledgeable about what he is doing and explained problems in detail to the buyers along the way. He also prompted the buyer to take notes and photos when he found anything worth noting. He provided the inspection report within 24 hours. He is report was well typed rather hand written and contains a lot of great details. He distinguished clearly facts from opinions. He's report was also well organized and easy to follow. The best thing is the regular inspection includes pest test as a courtesy to the customers. I will definitely use him again because thanks to him, I think I made the right decision to walked away from a bad house.
