Mr. Sewing brought to light several key issues with the state of the foundation at the time of the rebuild of the house. He raised points that none of the foundation companies had noticed, potentially saving the structure from 'correction' that would have damaged far more than it would have corrected.
Sewing and Associates provided me with the knowledge and confidence I needed to assess the purchase. I highly recommend this knowledgeable and experienced provider and would be pleased to utilize their services in the future if needed.

He arrived prior to our appointment and had done inspections without me there which I did not like since Im paying a lot of money for a home and like to be there to see what he is looking at and pointing out things that need to be fixed.. He was not very thorough on the inspection. After being in the house for a month we noticed that after a rain storm there was no water in the sump pump and looks to have been dry for a long time which tells me it wasnt tested during inspection. After inspecting the sump I decided to go around the baseboards of the home to see if there was any signs of water and low and behold I noticed a baseboard that looks to have been painted over and was wet. I removed the baseboard and noticed that it was wet and black mold was behind it. I would think after an inspection and noticed that sump pump pit is dry that I would inspect the baseboards like I did. There were visible sign of the baseboard being wet and has been for a while since the baseboard shown signs of being disfigured.

I was referred to

by two realtors, who both indicated

was highly recommended as his inspections were thorough. I emailed

under a time crunch,

was very prompt in responding - he offered a first slot which was a Saturday. I explained I needed to be out of town during the weekend and

re-arranged his schedule to be available on Friday - that was immensely appreciated. When I arrived, I found

had arrived early and was fully ready to begin the inspection.

did not rush through, he took his time to inspect thoroughly. Further,
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was very patient, explaining why certain findings were fine and others might be a concern. When it came to hard to reach parts of the ceiling,
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
went it - climbing through tight access points to ensure he could see up close the condition of the tucked away utilities. Equally so, he was undaunted by low deck clearance - he went in to ensure he saw the full house.
The inspection took about 4 hours in the afternoon; he published the report lightning fast, we had it early the next morning. The report was easy to read and follow - it clearly differentiated the items that required repair versus items that might warrant further attention, though not yet an issue. The items that required repair had clear photos that documented well his findings.

was on time and took his time walking us through the inspection. He answered every question thoroughly and went above an beyond our expectations. We felt he was honest throughout the process and that we got our money's worth. He was prompt to answer emails and phone calls. The final inspection report was clearly laid out and submitted quickly (see the website for an example). We would use
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
again for similar work, and we recommend him to other folks in the area looking for a quality home inspector.

We met
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
through Angies List and were needing a home inspection prior to putting my late mothers home on the
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. We came in from out of town and called
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. He was able to clear his personal schedule (it was the weekend) and do the inspection.
While we discussed the results, he gave us some great pointers on different agents who had experience with my mother's style of home and neighborhood. Because we listen to his advice, our agent was able to prevent us for making some costly renovations and ended up selling the home very fast for about 10% more that we anticipated. It was a very well spent $325.

Wonderful! I was so impressed with the quality of the inspection we received! I do not have much of an understanding when it comes to construction. I was able to identify areas of the home where paint was needed but that was about it. The inspector spent an entire day inspecting the 1900 square foot house. His report was over 30 pages long with clear explanations and photographs detailing the concerns that he found on our home. He found so many things that we had no idea existed. For example, he found that the ceiling was slightly starting to sag in the garage. He not only detailed the issue itself but he made a recommendation that we install ridge vents in the roof of the garage so that once the ceiling was repaired, we could prevent the issue from occurring again in the future. I could give so many more examples of similar issues that the inspector identified, such as issues with the electrical, roof, attic, and gutters. Although most of the issues were not safety concerns and were not issues that had to be fixed before moving into the house, having his detailed inspection report, gave us peace of mind that we were not likely to have surprises in the first year of ownership and it gave us a wonderful bargaining tool to negotiate the price of the repairs off of the home's selling price. I can't say enough about this inspector, I am so grateful! As it turned out, the owners were unwilling to reduce the price of the home or make the repairs, and we had to walk away from the deal. The inspector saved us from walking into something unprepared and made me realize that if I ever sell a home, I will have the home inspected before I put it on the
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
so that I can know what the issues are that need to be resolved before it goes into negotiation with the buyer! I would highly highly recommend this inspector!! He was very quick, responsive, and professional to interact with by phone and I would recommend him to everyone!!!

We had a lot of deferred maintenance on our home and needed to know what to address and in what order. We knew some of the problem areas but weren't competent to be aware of everything.
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
arrived timely and went right to work. They went over our house with an intense focus to determine what was wrong/needed repairing and what was OK. They not only looked at everything but took pictures so we could better understand what needed addressing. They checked the roof, the chimney, the brick facade of the house, foundation, windows, sidewalk and driveway, water flow, pressure, and drainage, and interior walls, doors, electrical outlets (inside and outside), appliances, and used thermal imaging in our attic to point out leaks in our duct work.
After they completed the inspection, they sat down with us to show us the pictures and explain each problem they discovered. By the next day they had e-mailed us an extensive and very detailed report along with the photos about their findings. It will easily allow us to determine what has priority in what turned out to be a lengthy list. We were reassured the house is not falling down around our heads but anticipate years of making repairs.
We would not hesitate to refer our friends and neighbors to

I had the good fortune to have
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inspect 3 different condos that I was considering purchasing. His report on the first property spared me the nightmare of investing in a money pit. That was my first time seeing an example of his work and I was greatly impressed. I knew from that moment going forward that he would be the one to call when I needed an inspector.
There weren't any major issues of concern regarding the second property.
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and his team did their usual
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
detailed work. I submitted a contract on the property, but was unable to make a deal with the sellers. They were very disappointed with the results of the appraisal. They refused to budge on their (much higher) asking price. In the end, we agreed to disagree and canceled the contract.
I just closed on the third property that
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inspected for me. It is by far the best place I've looked at during my months long
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. He told me that this place was worth the wait. If you need an inspector, I highly recommend
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
! I like the fact that his is a family run business.
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and his team are prompt (make that early!), personal professionals who are dedicated to looking out for the buyer. Their attention to detail is top notch! don't be put off by what might seem like a premium price to pay for their services. They are worth every penny. You won't be disappointed.

arrived on time and did a complete 2 hour home inspection, indoors and out, he went on the roof and checked under the trailer, he took a lot of photos and seemed to do a complete and thorough job. When he was finished, he went over all his findings with me and provided me with a very comprehensive and detailed assessment.
Hardy Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has sent me a link to view the full report complete with pictures and will also send me a CD with all the material. The whole cost was $300.00, (we did not do any water testing as it is water provided by the park) and well worth every penny. I certainly would consider using his services again in the future. A++!

Friendly quick response. Appointment arranged for whole home inspection. Services did not include actual inspection of crawl space. Inspected from outside of crawl space. (Crawl space has covered floor and ample room to move around). After move-in we found leaks in kitchen drain pipe leaking into crawl space. AC drain line was clogged causing water to sit in bottom of furnace on main floor with overflow and leakage into crawl space. Lastly, whole house water filter on water line in crawl space leaking into a bucket. I would have liked to be informed there would be no crawl space inspection prior to receipt of written report. We moved into home 8/4 with inspection having been completed 6/29. So could be possibility leaks occurred after inspection. The initial inspection did show crawl space was damp and likely due to fiberglass insulation around walls.
