was very responsive over the phone, and when I explained that I wanted every little thing found and noted, he told me that in the past his nickname was "The Terminator" because his inspections were so detailed and so thorough that clients had the information they needed if they decided to terminate their contracts. He also told me that his price was based on the square footage of the home and gave me a quote. He told me he could also do a radon test and mold sampling.
He arrived early for our appointment and when I arrived he told me that he'd met and spoken with the homeowner who
described as "a great guy". This made me feel like he was predisposed toward the seller rather than toward me as the person who hired him.
spent about four hours looking over the home and taking pictures. There were a number of items that my husband and I saw and pointed out, asking that they be included in the report such as a crack across the hall bathroom tile, a toilet paper holder ripped off a cabinet (the wood had holes left where it was), rotted wood on the french door frame, unevenness in the floor under the carpet in one of the bedrooms, etc. I wanted everything noted since I wanted as much bargaining power as possible when we went back to the seller to ask for repairs. I got the impression that
was most concerned with looking for defects or code violations rather than these more "cosmetic" issues because when I pointed them out, he agreed to take pictures, but didn't seem at all concerned by them (for example, with the cracked tile he said that since it was still attached to the subfloor that I shoudn't be concerned).
One thing he did that was great was he agreed to get the mold test expedited for us in order to meet our inspection contingency deadline. He originally said the lab would charge extra for that, but in the end he agreed to have it expedited without increasing the amount he charged us.
We ended up not buying that house, and when researching inspectors again, I found that several other highly rated companies charge on the price of the house, not square footage, which ends up being a lot less expensive in our case. His prices for radon and mold were pretty competitive, but I felt that I paid a lot more than I needed to for an inspection.
When we needed to hire another inspector we were more pleased with the next inspector for several reasons: 1) the price was lower but he documented everything (even cosmetic things) without us having to point them out. He explained that even cosmetic items can be signs of underlying problems or safety issues (i.e. a cracked tile can cut a foot).
2) The next inspector, when asked, made experienced suggestions as to what might be causing a particular problem and a ballpark estimate as to what it might cost to fix it.
Inspection's report was filled with, "consult a licensed contractor for this problem" which wasn't helpful to us to determine which problems were significant and which were not. 3) The next inspector was willing to get up on the roof of the house to evaluate its condition, whereas
Inspection looked at it from the ground.

The appointment time and details of what the inspection would/would-not cover were all explained up front via email.
was punctual, patient, and professional.
All findings were explained clearly and features of the home were described, along with recommend maintenance activities. As an example of his thoroughness,
located an air filter that the current owner himself clearly (based on its condition) didn't know existed.
The final report was delivered within 24 hours; thorough and included annotated pictures and discussion of all findings and recommendations.
It's great to see that true professionals, start to finish, are out there.

was prompt and very curtious. He was professional and very thorough in his work. The written report with photos was received within twenty four hours of his inspection. We were very please and have asked him to return and re-inspect our home after the builder completes the 11 month warranty repairs.

was quick in returning our call and they were able to work around our schedule. They were prompt, very pleasant and we were very impressed with their expertise and knowledge. A detailed inspection report was emailed to us the very next day, which included photos of the things that needed to be addressed by the builder. We have decided to hire the

Co. to come back to our home after the builder addresses the issues and re-inspect the home. Thank you Angieslist for helping us find a reputable company.

My wife and I live in New
Haymarket Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and were purchasing a brand new home in Virginia. My first reaction was that it is a brand new house, What could go wrong? My wife and daughter insisted that we get an inspection. I checked Angies list, and found Bill. I called Bill and told him that we were unable to accompany him on the inspection and so a great deal of trust was involved and we relied on his integrity. We were not disappointed. He arranged access to the home with the builder and performed the inspection. On the evening of the inspection we received a report by E-Mail which covered every inch of the house in intricate detail from the basement to the attic. Bill is a stickler for detail. His report covered the entire house from drainage, appliances, radon detection, HVAC, air conditioning, ease of opening all windows, temperature of the

and ovens, fireplace construction, etc. ingreat detail. I am an attorney and have seen hundreds of inspection reports from clients. Bill's meticulous attention to detail was so far superior to anything I have ever seen that I was flabbergasted. When he called to discuss the report he was extremely patient and responsive to our questions. Because of his findings and recommendations I was able to have the builder repair and replace any defective elements in the house and not have to bear the expense to fix these defects myself. Do not even consider using his competitors because you have found the best of the best
