Newport News Home Inspecting Articles

Home Inspecting reviews in Newport News


The whole experience was awesome from the initial inquiry call to get an estimate to the time when the inspector arrived and the report was completed. Knowing that this was our first time purchasing a home, the inspector was very polite, patient, and helpful; we learned a lot about homes and the normal wears and tears. The report was very detailed and helped us to do some negotiating to get work done by the sellers before settlement. I would highly recommend this company for their professionalism. It saved us lots of money on repairs and we are less stressful now that we know the home we purchased is in solid condition.

Did not go well from our (home seller's perspective. The inspector took over 4 hours to complete the inspection on a very basic house. I had several issues with his work.
1) He stuck a screwdriver or pencil in all soft wood spots and took pictures, leaving holes in multiple places around my home. Though he represented the buyer, his "inspection" forced me to repair the damage he left.
2) Used a sharpie to write on outlets to label them. I had to replace the outlet covers as sharpies do not wash off.
3) Cited a dried out vent boot on the roof, saying that those typically dry out. His report noted that he did not visually inspect it though. When I had a roofer (which I paid for) come to check it out, the roofer confirmed that the boot was not dried out and was in great shape.
4) Missed a couple of items on the inspection - broken pickets on the deck and garage door opener batteries.
5) Raised concern about the design of the HVAC system noting that it required a specialist to maintain - that he had never seen one like it. (It's was just a typical split system, maintained yearly by

's Heating and Air.)
If I were selling a home, I would not use this inspector as I felt that he damaged (albeit superficially) my home and took liberties that went beyond non-destructive inspection. Also, from the buyer's perspective, he missed items that were far more important than the list of items noted in his report (direction of gutter downspouts and location of light switch). He clearly demonstrated that he worked off a checklist without differentiating between high and low risk items. I used two other companies buying and selling homes and felt like they were much more helpful and thorough.

I needed a home inspection for the purchase of a home in Newport News, VA and contracted with
Newport News Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
Inspection through the recommendation of my realtor. I have purchased a home in the Newport News Area before and used another service.
They did accomplish the inspection in a timely manner.
Although they provided a military discount, the product provided was an eight page PDF with pictures of only things wrong with the home and a few digital photos of each of the items. I expected at least a three ring binder with a checklist of all the items inspected not just what was wrong. So for the $250 I paid, each piece of paper cost me $30!!!! I was concerned about the condition of the wood in the crawlspace, as would anyone who is buying a home in termite country in southern Virginia, not a thing was mentioned and I had to contact him for further information.
I had questions about what was inspected and what was not and it took the individual three days to return my call, not at all what I expected for paying for the inspection in advance.
He did provide

data on what appliances were in the house, which I already knew about since I did multiple walkthroughs prior to putting an offer on the home. For Instance, he indicated the AC/Heating System worked not much else.
I also expected a complete look at the entire house, to include the irrigation system. The Inspector did not look at the irrigation system claiming that he did not want to try it out to avoid possible freezing of the pipes....uhh...the inspection was accomplished three days before the beginning of the summer!!!!
Although I used the report to get items repaired prior to closing, I was disappointed with the product and price.
