was suggested to us by another industry professional, and how lucky we were to get the recommendation. We are first time home buyers who wanted to get an inspection of the septic system on a foreclosed, bank owned property. When I first spoke to
Elmira Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, I immediately knew I was talking to a professional that took pride not only in his own work, but also in the industry. He was well-educated and wasn't trying to sell himself or his business.

is not only a septic inspector but also a home inspector with multiple certifications. But most importantly, he was fair and honest. During the conversation, he told me that the camera he normally uses to look inside the pipes was not working and that it would not be fixed by the time we needed to have our inspections completed, He explained to me other ways of testing that would ensure all of aspects of the system were functioning properly. When our conversation ended, I told my husband we found the right guy for the job.
There were some bumps in the road as far as scheduling the date and time for the inspection, but they were OUR fault not his.

was extremely accommodating, patient, and reassured us that every and anything we needed inspection wise he ensured would done before our deadline. Not only did we make our deadline but we had a few days to spare!

excavated the tank lid, manually inspected the tank and both ballasts, and stress tested our leach field. He excavated a portion of the main outflow pipe and performed a visual inspection. He recognized that the pipe had "settled and proceeded to tell us what kind of impact that could have for us down the road.

I called
Elmira Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
on Saturday 8/2/14 needing a home inspection the following Tuesday. The receptionist was very accommodating and set us up for that date.
Our inspector was
Elmira Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. Our initial impression of him was that he was very young (think college student), but after walking through the 2 hour home inspection with him, we were very impressed. He was very thorough, had high tech heat sensor equipment, and identified items we would never have noticed. During the inspection, he was not bothered by the many questions I had and even invited us to join him in the inspection process, and gave us many tips on how to fix some of the minor problems.
Based on the report, we were able to lower the purchase price of the home we were buying to re-mediate the major problems identified by

received a B-grade in some areas due to the report arriving 2 days later. I emailed several times and finally called and got a hold of

(owner). He emailed the report right away. Besides that glitch, my husband and I were very pleased and have already recommended them to family members.

arrived a few minutes early and got right down to business.
As he performed his inspection, he stopped and discussed items of concern. He also explain what he found, and whether or not the items were a big deal.
He also offered advise to issues he saw (such as hollow trees etc.) that he had knowledge and experience of, which was helpful as well.
His work was SO THOROUGH!!!
We feel very confident in his work and findings. And we will use him again if needed. We will also advice others to obtain his services too!!
Thanks
Elmira Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked

Mr.
Elmira Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was prompt and arrived fully prepared. He was meticulous in his inspection and answered all of our questions. He pointed out all the items that needed attention and gave each a rating on whether we could do the work ourselves or if it was something that needed professional attention. He also noted which things could wait as well as items that were optional. He spent nearly 5 hours and took lots of pictures especially of attic and crawlspace where I could not go so he could show me his findings. He sent a detailed 27 page report promptly following the inspection as well as additional homeowner information for recommendations on home maintenance. He was very professional and I appreciated all of his assessments and advice. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

We uncovered a crack in our slab when pulling up carpeting and were concerned. A couple of contractors thought it was ok, but weren't entirely sure, so we wanted an engineer to look at it. PPI sent Dev to us asap, and he was terrific. Reassured us that our house was not falling down, and evaluated not only the slab, but the the foundation walls and a crack in the ceiling. He was thorough, gave us cogent explanations, and made useful recommendations. The peace of mind was definitely worth it. We recommend Dev and PPI with no reservations.

arrived about 15 minutes early and took a few hours to complete the inspection including walking me through the house showing me each item of interest. They were VERY thorough including door frames which had primer, but not paint on them. They did a great job of explaining everything to me including the severity level of each problem and ways to remedy them. He climbed onto the roof and under the house into the crawl space. The report was provided by that evening and was very thorough and included color pictures. I would recommend this company to anyone needing a thorough, high quality inspection.

This company is too much about fluff and not about details. Fancy binder and enough stuff found to not break the Realtor's deal. It was ridiculous. What did they miss: two bad hot water heaters, circular pump that was broken, 3 running toilets, 3 leaking faucets, rear door, garage side door and mud room doors door jams and rubber strip prohibits from shutting all of the way, A/C escapes.



$6,000+ to repair, thanks BrickKickers! Buyer beware!

Received the kit within 3-5 days. Directions were followed in applying the disinfection substance to the well water. Waited 10 days as directed before collecting a water sample to return to the provider in their prepaid envelope. The provider then, sent an analysis of the water condition. Very satisfied! Everything done in a timely manner.

The home was beautiful, with all the right updates. According to the seller's disclosure, the home had no issues and was move-in ready. Since the home was older (1975), we decided to get the best inspector available.

spent about 3.5 hours inspecting the 2500 square foot house. He provided us with a very detailed report, including pictures.
We verified and quantified his findings with well-regarded professionals whom we would hire to do the work. Thanks to
