I called
Sandy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to do an inspection on a home that I wanted to purchase. He was very thorough in his inspection and written report. He took the time to walk me through the home and show me the issues that he had noticed. He was great to work with.

we've been in this home for almost 8 years and had two inspections during that time (when we moved in and again when we refinanced a couple years ago.) Both inspections turned up small problems but all were easily dealt with so we were not worried in the least when it came time for our home to be inspected by potential buyers. The potential buyers agreed to share the inspection results with us and sent a pdf of the summary report.
Unfortunately, that report came back absolutely full of bad news--everything from fireplace problems to (potentially catastrophic) roof leaks to siding issues and to all kinds of things that weren't "up to code" in our 1989

Homes built house. I will say that

were definitely thorough. Needless to say we were quite shocked at the report and more than a little stressed out--the report made it sound like the house was about to crumble down around us at any moment. We immediately called in experts (found on Angie's List, every one of them) to fix the problems; we called in roofers, fireplace specialists, a plumber, a siding company, a general handyman, and even had another inspector (friend of the family) come look at the problem areas noted in the report.
So here's the strange thing: all of those people, every single one of them, told us there were no actual problems. We tried to give them money, had a written report stating that there were things that needed to be fixed, and yet each and every one of those professionals told us there was nothing for them to do. We eventually paid the handyman to re-seal a couple windows and install a new bathtub faucet. We literally tried repeatedly to pay people to work for us and they all refused, saying there were no problems to fix. (I guess their honesty speaks to the generally high quality of Angie's List recommendations, right?)
That original deal fell through, based on this inspection report and the 30-40K in repairs (which ended up costing us $270 in time and parts) and work that the inspector quoted to the potential buyers. Our house sold again very quickly--and actually for a better price--and I waited to write this review until after that happened, so I wouldn't write in anger. But I'd certainly love to have an explanation.
Every glowing review here on Angie's List for this company may be completely accurate since mine seems to be the only one from the other side of the equation, but I have a really hard time finding a plausible explanation for this that doesn't cast the inspectors in a pretty damaging light. Given the gaping disparity between what was reported on the inspection summary and what we were told by numerous unrelated professionals I would certainly not use

myself. Unless, I guess, I wanted to get out of a contract and needed a good excuse.
