  • Provider name locked. was very knowledgeable and polite. He took the time to tell me everything as he went along and explained whether it was something to worry about or just an item to watch out for down the road. His inspection ended up saving us a large amount of money for repairs by being able to submit a very detailed and organized request to the seller. I would use him again and I recommend him to everyone.

  • He was punctual and somewhat thorough. His inspection report was extremely vague and accompanied by poor resolution photos. Then there was the actual content of the report. 
     1."The chimney cap is damaged or deteriorated, leaks may occur. Recommend repairs by a qualified contractor. " He never even got onto my roof, he stood on a ladder in my yard.  So he only seen the chimney cap from below and about 30 ft away.
    2. "Open ground, three-pronged grounding type receptacles were found. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate and make repairs as necessary." This was one outlet where there was an adapter to make 2 plugs into 6, like a power strip. So he didnt test the outlet he tested the adapter.  
    3.  "The refrigerator door handle is not securely fastened. A qualified contractor should repair as necessary." An example of the vagueness of his report. The door handle wiggled so slightly that I had never even noticed it. Luckily it took 1/2 turn with an Provider name locked. Wrench to fix it. But when left this vague then a buyer who doesn't know better could think the handle might be hanging on only by rusty bolts or in complete disrepair. 
    4.  "The master bathroom with a shower does not have an exhaust fan installed. Moisture accumulation will occur and may damage the structure. Even if the bathroom has a window that opens, it likely does not provide adequate ventilation, especially during cold weather when the window is closed." My master bathroom has an exhaust fan and it works great. So I'm not sure what happened here... 
    5. "Batteries in all the smoke alarms should be replaced after taking occupancy, and annually in the future. "Chirping" noises emitted from smoke alarms typically indicate that batteries need replacing. Additional smoke alarms should be installed as necessary so a functioning one exists in each hallway leading to bedrooms, and in each bedroom." Another one here. 1 month ago before I listed my house I replaced every smoke detector in my home, then had them inspected. There is no  "chirping". But this generalization leads a buyer to believe that there was chirping and/or missing smoke detectors when that isn't the case.
    6. " The lock mechanisms on both French doors are inoperable and/or difficult to operate. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair as necessary." Well these locks function pretty well since they were installed roughly 2 months ago. But he never specified whether they were "difficult" or "inoperable". So a buyer could think these doors will not lock at all when really they are brand new and function perfectly. Im gonna call operator error on that one.
    SO... On the report there were 53 items and at least 30 of them were random little bits of info like "Recommend cleaning all appliances prior to use", which is put in as a general recommendation, but could lead a buyer to believe that the appliances are dirty. The report is cluttered with all this random stuff that makes if difficult to navigate.
    I will however admit that he managed to unearth some actual discrepancies, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  • Only After I moved in, I discovered that his inspection was not at all accurate--or the least bit professional-
    He failed to discover just how old the roof underlayment is (sellers claimed it to be 2 years old & so too did the real estate agency)--It is more like 20 -30 years old & leaks all over-- Sellers/ and/or realtor  painted over the numerous ceiling stains so inspector would not notice it.  He noted no problems with the roof at all & thought it to be 2 years old... I do not think he even went on the roof at all-- Because, had he, he would have noticed LOTS of issues, which we immediately discovered the first time it rained after we moved in--
    Also failed to note a huge  water leak inside the stucco walls which caused the wall to buckle up & flake off after we moved in--(also painted over/covered up  by sellers & probably with the realtors' knowledge & participation..) Caused by years & years of leaks inside the wall--
    Also, failed to get under the house to inspect a single thing there (claimed there was "no room" to do so--yet I had a  huge 6'4' man crawl under there & perform repairs later-repairs that were missed by this inspector)--Failed to note a large pine tree root that had grown into the crawl space-- Also, failed to note a disconnected  (100% non-functional) AC vent under  the sun room floor  (or the blasts of wasted continuous cold air blowing freely under the house & leaking out through the foundation air vents--which I noticed the moment I moved in..,)   Other things were missed, as well--
    It is important NOT to let the realtors chose your inspectors-- However, I chose this one & regret it every day...
