Very professional and thorough. They conducted a full home inspection with radon and insect inspection. The inspector took time to explain items on the inspection and point out potential issues with the new home.

Numerous mistakes; nitpicking comments; I would not hire this company. They seem to deliberately find fault in order to justify their relatively high price.

is a very nice man who is easy to work with. He quickly scheduled my home inspection even though it was the holiday season. I have come to understand that not all home inspections are equal. I am used to inspectors who turn on every appliance and test every outlet and give you a scary report of every possible thing that could go wrong with the house. I like that approach.

is much more light touch. He told me my house is solid (it is) but left me to discover a lot of unexpected things that needed fixing once I moved in. It may just be an upstate vs. downstate thing, but I was disappointed.

This inspection went extremely well, in my opinion, and was well worth the cost. He was very thorough, and took his time with every aspect of the inspection. He was very helpful in helping us understand issues of immediate concern vs. other concerns of lower priority. He allowed one of us to accompany him during inspection, and was quite willing to verbally explain everything as he proceeded. He traveled a significant distance to get to the house, and provided us with a written report very quickly, based on our need for a prompt report. I feel he went above and beyond professional efforts for our needs. I would use him again anytime. I was very satisfied overall, and would highly recommend his services to others.

I've owned 4 houses and had 4 inspections, so I'm no stranger to the game. Also, know a little something about home repairs as I renovated three of those houses. I can tell when someone is the real deal and when someone is throwing bull and I'm happy to say

. He arrived on time did a thorough inspection gave a concise summary and answered all our questions. The detailed inspection was online that night. We're reviewing it now. The pictures are excellent and the descriptions outstanding. We have complete confidence that we know the extent of repairs needed for our new home.
There is a reason he has straight A's on Angie's list. Yes. We would use him, again.

is a very professional and competent home inspector. He has been doing this for a long time, and the experience shows in the information he provides. This was actually the 2nd time we used him, the 1st time we walked away from a house based on the home inspections findings and we are very glad we did.

is a great inspector! This is actually the 2nd inspection he has done for me & soon to be a 3rd. In both cases, he identified extremely expensive needed repairs ($50-100K each). Neither seller would come down the full amount of repairs, so I walked twice. He saved me from tremendous expense & headache! The 1st seller tried to steer me to her own inspector. But I had already reviewed home inspectors on Angie's List and

is earthquake country, and this chimney was at increased risk of damage in the next quake. He recommends sub inspectors; in this case, he recommended inspections by roofing and drainage. The crawlspace perimeter dirt was moist from excessive watering of the newly laid grass sod. The downspouts dumped right next to the foundation. Consequently, the crawlspace floorboard undersides showed signs of fungus, which was the final straw in causing me to walk away from the escrow without even asking for repair costs. Fungus is too big of an unknown expense. My hand held EMF (electromagnetic field) meter showed that the best place for the bed in the master bedroom had high EMF readings where the head of the bed would go due to the electric service panel right on the other side of the wall. High EMF exposure is postulated, but not proven to cause malignant brain tumors in cell phone users. Maybe it doesn’t, but I would want the peace of mind of avoiding prolonged exposure to known EMF sources. EMF meters are available on line. Read their reviews to decide which is best for you.

gives a verbal summary at the end of the inspection. He follows with a detailed written summary within 2 days, complete with photos and arrows pointing to defects. We are doing a 3rd inspection this week. The termite report a year ago when the flippers bought it showed water damage. The place has since been rehabbed, but I plan to check the drywall moisture levels where the water damage was found. Probably was a roof leak. The roof was replaced. But, with an old roof, and it hasn’t rained hard in a while, you can always spray water on the roof a few hours before the inspection.

We did not get to meet

as there was an illness in our family. Our realtor was able to meet him at the home so the inspection could take place as planned. The results of the inspection were delivered in the time frame promised and were very thorough. We would definitely use this company again.

I recently joined Angie's list so this review is from last year. I had Bill inspect my new home after I had numerous issues after move in (the builder reimbursed me for the cost of the inspection). I recently paid for a 1 year inspection before the home warranty runs out. I decided to use another inspector to get another set of eyes on the property. I now have a greater appreciated for the quality of Bill's inspection!
Bill inspected my 2 story roof - no questions asked. Very few other inspectors that I reached out to recently to inspect at the 1 year
Charlottesville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
used greater than a 17 foot ladder (which would not reach my roof). Luckily he did because he found an issue up there! He used a thermal gun/camera to check the installation and the efficiency of the A/C/heating units. He took tons of pictures - not just of problem areas, but of the other areas, like the attic and the roof. It's great to have these for reference.
Upon completion, he discussed every item with me and showed me pictures to match.
I highly recommend Bill for your inspection. I would definitely use him to inspect another home in the future.
