FIRST if you are buying a house in Loudoun County (or any other county for that matter). I have worked with Excel House Inspections several times and have always been amazed at what he discovers... No house is perfect --But, before you make the biggest purchase of your life you need to know what you are walking into---
performs *extremely* thorough home inspections that can alert you to very serious/costly problems that may not be visible to the naked eye... If you are buying new construction this is ESPECIALLY true...
Get the peace of mind you need from someone who is not afraid to tell you the truth --
PS: Buyers should always work with ASHI-certified inspectors whenever possible...

The *FINEST* HOME INSPECTOR in DC, Virginia or Maryland. I have worked with many home inspectors over the years and
is simply the best.
inspected two homes for me this year (2014) and I was amazed at what he discovered and the level of detail found in his written reports (30+ pages, including photographs, YMMV).
's style is very calm, but astute and methodical. He reminds me of a detective you might see in a movie. He carefully assesses each house and goes through it step by step. He will put issues in context, and offers insights on what it might cost to fix a particular item. He will gladly share his discoveries with his clients as he explores each home...
I was also amazed at his knowledge of new home construction. Anyone thinking of building a new home or buying new construction, needs to call
first. His knowledge of the construction techniques, business and "culture" is extremely valuable...
is one of the most senior ASHI-certified inspectors in this area and is a nationally-known home-inspection instructor. Before you make the biggest purchase of your life, make sure that you know what you are -really- buying ---get an inspector that has "seen it all".... You can't go wrong with

, called me within 24 hrs making an appt immediately. Upon his arrival sat with us for a complete history of situations affecting our home which may cause moisture damage, mold occurrences etc...In addition he obtained medical info.
He explained he would use his camera as a tool and inspect our entire home and yard, etc
After doing this he sat with us at one of our computers and downloaded his SD card...there were over 200 pictures with extensive documentation of moisture contamination to entire crawl space, ducts, insulation, etc
He then went over his recommendations, as well at our request gave us names of persons that could help us
This fellow is very professional, friendly, and honest
He does none of the clean up or repair but does the diagnosis, prognosis with proper repairs...he will assist you in doing a pre and post discussion with contractors prior to work done and materials purchased...this alone is worth so very much
He emails the report to you as well as to contractors etc
This went so much better than i dreamed but will be quite exprensive because we put it off so long as we do not trust many people like this...but our belief in Angie's List and then in the description of him and his background made us feel comfortable calling him

I called the contractor about 2 weeks ago and scheduled a home inspection on a 100 year old home that I recently inherited from a relative. Upon his arrival he saw that I had outside dogs, which were fenced and out of his way, and immediately without a greeting asked if the house was "flea infested". I informed him that there were no fleas in the house as the dogs were outside and since I live in the home I could say with certainty that it was not an issue. He stated that he would go and get his gear then upon reaching his vehicle called my cellphone to inform me that he had "changed his mind and is not interested in inspecting anything with fleas". I again made it clear to him that there are no fleas in the house and if he would come into the house he would see that to which he responded that he "never walks away from a job but he's going to walk away from this one because the house must be unsafe with all the fleas". I have no fleas in my home and anyone who has been here can attest to that fact. The contractor was both incredibly rude and unprofessional while refusing to perform the agreed upon service based on an assumption he made after seeing that I have dogs. I would strongly suggest to anyone seeking to hire a home inspector that they find someone who has the professionalism and integrity to stand behind their agreements and perform quality services which leaves Mr.

We hired
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to perform an inspection and radon test for a house we are buying. He was recommended to us by our Realtor and she told us he is very thorough in his inspections.
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did not disappoint - he spent about 4 hours with us at the house looking at everything. He went in the crawl space to check for drainage issues and/or water damage and he put on coveralls and special shoes for that part of the inspection. Then before going into the house he changed shoes so as not to track any dirt into the house, which I appreciated. He checked out the roof with binoculars to look for missing/cracked shingles, tested pretty much every outlet in the house, tested all of the drains and plumbing fixtures, etc.
He also set up the radon test (charcoal packets hanging in the family room) before leaving and the packets were supposed to be there undisturbed for three days to get the most accurate reading. We found out a few days later that a contractor who had come to the house to do a termite inspection had left the door to the garage open, and that air coming in can skew the radon test results.

came back out the next day and reset the test for no charge.
Finally, if
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
finds anything wrong as he's doing the inspection he takes photos of the issue/problem area. Those photos were then included in the 35 page inspection report we received from him via email the night after the inspection.

is very thorough in documenting things, so the inspection report includes everything from issues that need to be addressed immediately (ex. missing shingles) to items that aren't as critical but could be fixed at some point (ex. peeling/damaged weather stripping on a door).
Overall the whole process of working with
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was fantastic and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspector.

was punctual, extremely thorough, professional, and informative. They sub-contract the termite inspection with another company (Pest Now) and he was just as professional. I received both the termite and home inspection reports within 24hrs.

After starting with Angie's List I checked out the websites for the top two home inspection companies. Because of the rave reviews for
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and tons of information their site makes available to educate consumers about home inspections, I called
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and that's all it took. I knew I had a good company....More /> My husband and I are exchanging homes with friends of ours so we hired
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to inspect one home in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Upon arrival
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
explained everything that would take place and gave us copies of all state-required paperwork. He also hires a master plumber to do video piping, if requested, and when necessary a termite professional.
Another thing that was particularly impressive is how patient he is with customers. We followed him around and asked question after question and he always answered in detail and took as much time as necessary to help us understand. I'm sure that is why our two modest homes took more time than we expected. He never made us feel like we were bothering him.
At the end of the day my husband and I feel like we've made a new friend and we are not even waiting to receive our report to write this rave review. We are confident it will exceed our expectations - just like everything else he does.

His response to my email asking about multiple issues that were missed and malfunctioning and/or went unreported in the report he emailed us,( therefore not allowing us to ask seller to repair or negotiate since we were out of state), was a rude and unprofessional. He FAILED to even successfully execute much less go above and beyond the fine line of his franchised business contract as he enthusiastically professed he would do so in our initial phone conversation because he "knew our Realtor" and therefore, would do the inspection himself, etc. The items he did own up to missing he promised to have repaired. We have never heard from him again. Tried to contact HouseMaster who he bought his franchise from and still have not heard back from them. Will pursue with them, the BBB and FL State Attorney General's offices. We have bills that
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is responsible for.

This is the second time I have used
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for an inspection on a home I was purchasing. I wanted to use them again because of the great work and education they provided to me on the first house.
Below are some reasons why Texas Inspections Partners will always have my business when it comes to home inspections!
- Education - Not only do they tell you what the problem is, but they educate on the why's and what needs to be done.
- Patience - These guys will let you ask as many questions as you need and will let you walk around with them while they do the inspection; expaining everything the whole time.
- Thorough Inspection - I have sold houses and bought houses before using different inspectors. These were the most thorough inspectors I've ever had. This is wonderful! As the home buyer, I feel complete confidence in the property I'm purchasing after an inspection by
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
- Friendl - need I say more? They are great!
- Great pictures and background information - the reports have great pictures and are complete with all the information you need.
I would highly recommend
Ithaca Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for any home inspection. These guys are great!

I spoke by phone with the owner. A buyer had an inspection and reinspection done on the house I'm selling. Let's just say I didn't trust the inspector's assessment. I was exploring having my own inspection done to see if the items identified were actually problematic. The owner (sorry, I don't recall the name) talked me through the issues, explained how inspections and reinspections are done, and even asked me about the items that were identified. He gave me lots of FREE advice about how to handle the problem. It's evident that he has a lot of experience in the field and he was very friendly and helpful. The next time I'm looking for an inspector, I will definitely hire
