Irving Home Inspectors Reviews
home inspector and general contract with many years of experience. He claimed
he was in the process of working on a home dealing with the same issues we were
experiencing and that he would do no “Up selling” that "EVERY ONE
ELSE" does. That he was a very honest representative of his trade and
could be completely trusted.
The real truth became apparent within the first 15min of Mr.
We are in need of some new siding. Even though he claimed he was
working on a job with replacing siding as we spoke, he had to stop and call his
supplier to even ask and figure out what is available or even still being
produced for siding.
I asked about if he would replace the tar paper under the siding and
any bad insulation like other siding contractors had said would be
He went into a whole tirade about how he would only patch the tar
paper with bits of Tyvek where the paper was damaged. He said there was no need
to replace the tar paper. It was start to become very clear that this guy just
wanted to make things look good from the outside while he was there and take
our money and run. Never mind what is going on behind that siding and the
We have a window that has a ton of water damage and he took one
quick look and leaped back because of some of the mildew. Did not spend more
the 3 seconds looking at it and just said, "It is your bad siding".
Yes it is the same wall that has the bad siding, but from a far away
look, the siding around the window is not bad? This is him being a home
Then there are our two bathrooms. The master bath has a shower
where the tile is falling off because the home was built with just drywall. He said,
"Yes the shower and bath need to be replaced". But did not offer how
he was going to address how to guarantee that the water from the shower would
not continue to seep from its location. He seemed surer that bathrooms should
only last "20-25 years". I am trying to figure out why we would spend
money to have a bathroom done not correctly so that it can be redone in
"20 Years" or less?
The other bath was more of the same mess….
He never looked closely at things, even at the things we were
pointing out. He kept saying he had our backs and yet after he left, he NEVER
responded to any emails or phone calls asking for his bid. It was like he fell
off the face of the earth.
We would never have given this man any money. But we want all to
read this to be very aware of whom he really is. A very bad
representative of the remodeling trade!
This inspector missed several key items including a broken window that was covered with a piece of cardboard. Had the inspector took the time to move the curtain and property inspect all of he widows (as he as paid to do) he would have seen the broken window.
In addition he missed a leak in our upstairs bathroom which should have been easily fixed (and cost us money to fix) and an issue with the garage door, which he also should have caught.
However, the biggest evidence of this inspectors negligence is detailed below:
Also in his inspection report he notes many cracks around (and on the inside) and tells us the cracks are normal and that we just need to go to Home Depot and buy some mortar to fill in the cracks. We asked him if there could be a
Two years later we hired an engineer to look at our home and he confirmed those cracks were a sign of a foundation problem and one of the cracks is the same crack in the picture
What a poor way to handle a customer and do the right thing. It's disappointing to see that are companies out there that are willing to take advantage on first time home buyers. I would not suggest you ever use this company. We are still trying to get this company to take responsibility for their actions and do the right thing, but it looks like it's going to require a lot of effort.
Disappointing. Be careful who you trust, and most of all don't trust this company.
I'll will be contacting the realtors in my area as well and telling them about our experience with this inspector and that they shouldn't use this inspector under any circumstances, as well as the state licensing board.
