"If I never find another service provider through Angie's List other than
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, I will consider my memberships
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
as money WELL spent.
I could not be more pleased with my experience. I contacted
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
after reading his reviews here on Angie's List, and hired him to provide a home inspection on a house I had been in contract to purchase. He arrived at the property even before *I* did (admittedly, I was five minutes late, oddly enough because I was checking out another property... but that's another story), and immediately got to work. He was SO INCREDIBLY THOROUGH, taking his time with everything, never rushing, and spend a solid 2 1/2 hours pouring over every nook and cranny with a fine-tooth comb. And for a house that was less than 900 square feet? That's a lot of time. After he was done, he took me on a detailed walk-through, going over the major points of his findings, never once rushing, and pausing to answer every single question I'd had. I found him calm, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable.
Being that my appointment was on a Saturday, I wasn't expecting to receive the detailed report until Monday, so I was pleasantly surprised when an email came through the very next day, stating that my report was ready to view. I pulled it up, and
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
' and behold, a MASSIVE
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
of information had been sent my way, complete with color photos, videos, and computerized arrows pointing things out in said pictures... very useful for us OCD types frazzled by the home-buying process. I seriously can not begin to describe just how well put-together his reports are, and they read in a very simplified manner, explaining everything in clear and concise language.
I have since walked away from the aforementioned home, in large part because of
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's findings, and am now in contract on another home (actually, the one I'd been touring which had caused me to be late for my own appointment). I have the Home Inspection scheduled in two days, and you guessed it...
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
will be the one performing the service again. I wouldn't even THINK about going to someone else.

"My realtor recommended this company. I did visit the websites of this company, as well as two others and decided that thoroughness was important enough to me to go with this company, especially after talking with them on the phone.
Alarm bells should have been ringing on the date of the scheduled inspection when I saw the inspector fish around in his pocket for a key that he used to scrape some ear wax from his ear.
Since the house was empty and vacant, I stayed for the length of the inspection which took approximately 3 hours. The inspector pointed out a hole in the closet that housed the furnace, saying "Look at that. It isn't supposed to be here." He didn't even mention it on his report, or mention the clearly visible exposed wiring in the hole, much less take a picture of it.
I did not follow the guy around and watch everything he did and did not do, figuring that the amount of money involved precluded the necessity.
The report was Emailed to me two days later.
The report was
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
with inaccuracies, mistakes, mis-statements and errors. Several outlets that, according to the report, were stated to be GFCI protected, were clearly not protected at all. One outlet was in a bathroom, another was on the exterior of the house.
The inspector stated the insulation in the attic was cellulose and of adequate depth when it clearly is neither cellulose nor of adequate depth. He stated the ducting was fine when it CLEARLY is not. Of course, no photos accompanied these statements.
(A subsequent inspections of the premises by individuals not associated with UPII was performed at a later date.)
He stated some of the windows couldn't be opened because of furniture being in the way, yet the the house was completely vacant and all of the windows opened with ease. He stated one of the bedroom doors was leaning against a wall, unhung, yet no such problem existed. Again, no accompanying photos were included in the report.
There were SO many things wrong with the inspection and the report that it is mind boggling how a company can operate in such a manner. The items mentioned above are merely a sample of the abundant errors.
The president of the company,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
Calliu, did "seem" to be appropriately concerned during our second phone conversation (after the second Email). He claimed he would "make it right" and came to the house to verify and address the issues of complaint. He agreed that the issues of concern were valid and he would arrange to have some of them repaired. I'm still waiting.
My guess is that the inspector, Bill
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, has either not been trained or screened by UPII, or else he is completely incompetent. That being said, UPII is grossly negligent in it's representation of the quality of work they perform, and thereby also completely incompetent.

from
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did our home inspection for our mortgage. His inspection took over 2 1/2 hours, was incredibly through, and he gave us a disc of the pictures that he took, AFTER he took the time to explain what the pictures were of, and what they meant. He also took the time to explain to us what the California state laws were concerning various defects in the house, how to fix them, and how and where we could find good people to fix the issues. (Like here on Angie's List!) If I were to buy another house...
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and his son are the people that I want inspecting the house.

"I found
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
through Angie's List. When I called and interviewed him for the job, he was very professional and very graciously answered all my questions. We were going through escrow (buying a home) and wanted a home inspection done. While most inspectors have a minimum price of $325 for anything up to 2000sf,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
charges $300 for homes under 1500sf, which I thought was fair. During a time when you have all kinds of additional expenses related to buying a home, every dollar saved can add up to a helpful amount. In addition,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was the only one I found who offered thermal imaging as part of his home inspection. I had been a bit worried about not being able to afford thermal imaging as an added cost to my home inspection and after I spoke with
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and he confirmed that he actually did this at no extra cost, I was very relieved. The surface may look nice, but you really need to know that what's behind the walls won't turn your life into a financial nightmare.

Day of Home Inspection Appointment.
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
arrives on time and is ready to go.
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
likes to take about 2 hours to go through the home and check everything by himself. Totally fine with us. Our realtor stayed in the house while we went exploring the new neighborhood.
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
went on the roof, entered into the attic, got into everything he could and checked every outlet, every switch, checked the HVAC and every standard appliance, the yard,... did an excellent job. When we came back,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
walked us through the house and the yard and informed us of everything that needed attention and provided recommendations on how to fix certain things that we could do ourselves and, for more complex things, advised us on specialized professionals we needed to bring in. Now, if you have a bad memory like mine, have a notepad and pen handy and jot down things he says. I didn't take my notepad when he started explaining things, but lucky for me, my realtor (who is also my son-in-law) has a really good memory. All the suggestions he makes will not be in the home inspection report.

His report is extensive, with pictures, and covers everything. It is available electronically online at his website within 24 hours. He provides a sample at his website so you can check it out before you hire him. The narrative part covers topic introductions and explanations, and lists every problem/situation that he has found and gives recommendations on which kind of professional to look for to address the issue. The summary part covers the things that need to be addressed before you move in. We requested certain repairs from the sellers and submitted the home inspection report with our request. They made all the repairs requested. Now, after closing, the report has been a very helpful guide as we are making sure to get the little things done and getting professionals to address more technical issues. None of the professionals that have come through have found anything that was missed in the report.

I am very happy with
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's work and I highly recommend him. Last I heard, my realtor hired
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to inspect his mother's house, which she is contemplating selling.

"I called and left a voicemail with the company.
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, contacted me later that evening. He was very professional from the start. It was clear from the beginning that he knows his job well. He asked penetrating questions about the inspection report; I'm sure he even began the diagnostic and troubleshooting process from the phone call. He was able to meet me at the unit later in the week. He arrived promptly, and began going through the items in the inspection report in a methodical manner. I had plumbers there at the same time, and
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
easily worked with and around them in some tight spaces. As he worked through each item, he explained to me what he was doing and, in those cases in which there were options, he explained them to me and let me choose the course of action. There were a few times when the job seemed to be taking more time or effort than expected, and I kept expecting him to have to go to another job, but he was committed to getting everything done and I very much appreciated that.

One aspect of the job involved inspecting the electrical situation for the air-conditioning unit. When it became clear that it was going to have to go up on the roof, it really didn't faze him at all. He just grabbed a ladder and climbed up to determine what needed to be done.

Not holding out much hope for an inexpensive solution, I asked him about an electrical heating element in the bathroom. Based upon the inspection report, I was sure that the unit was defective and would need to be replaced. As he went through the troubleshooting process, he found instead that the switch was defective. I was able to make a quick Home Depot run while he was working on the panel, and when I returned he replaced bathroom switch and the heater works perfectly now.

The condo was built in the late 1960s, and the electrical conventions at the time are quite different from today.
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
seemed well acquainted with old and new standards and how to achieve the best outcome. For example, the new GFCs were a challenge to install (a tight fit) because the size of boxes were typically shallower then than they are now. Again, this "bumps in the road" really didn't faze him at all.

A few weeks later (October 6th), I had another electrical issue in the condo related to central heating, something not on the inspection report. Again,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
worked with me on the phone to determine whether it was an HVAC or electrical issue. After determining that it could be an electrical issue,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
literally came over in about 20 minutes. As the condo was for my mom, and she has just moved to California in the last week, I really appreciated his willingness to engage the problem right away so that she would be warm and comfortable in this first cold snap of the year.

In both cases, I felt the prices
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
charged were very reasonable for the high quality service he provided. He is careful, detail-oriented, and professional. I've used his services twice, and I would not hesitate to use him again. I will also be recommending him highly to my friends that need electrical work.

"I selected
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
after seeing favorable reports on Angie's list. They responded promptly with an appointment, and
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
showed up on time to do the inspection. He walked around the outside of the house with a pole that had a sharp metal point and poked various places. He came inside and looked around, under the kitchen sink and in the rooms. After his inspection, he came in to where I was seated with a very serious look on his face and asked me if I knew how these real estate inspections worked (or something along those lines). He told me that we had a lot of dry rot, which would cost at least $10,000.00 to repair. He spent some time making the case about how serious it was. The next day, I had forgotten that the lender had requested that we use a particular form for the termite inspection, so I called
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and asked to email the form over. The lady who answered the phone said that would be fine. Later, she called back, and said, no, the report that they used should be fine. I later talked to
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, who also refused to fill out the form, saying his boss forbade him to. When I got the report in the mail, I noted that
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
had a few obvious inaccuracies on the report. He noted that our upstairs bathroom was over a living area, and that he had checked the ceiling for stains--wrong! It is not over a living space. He said the attic was not accessible due to storage--also wrong, which he would not have known since he didn't even ask where the attic access was. To top it off,
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
had included an estimate for repairs that had a starting price of over $21,000.00!! Since I wasn't born yesterday, I promptly called several other professionals to come and give us their opinions and estimates of the damage and costs of repair. Each one of these that gave us their opinion was incredulous of the
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inspection, both in its accuracy and especially in the estimate of cost for repairs.I don't know why an inspection company is even allowed to do repairs. I had no idea that
Sacramento Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was in the business, but apparently it is common practice. It seems to me to be a blatant conflict of interest. If I take my car to my mechanic and ask him to find something to fix and charge me for it, he most likely will!

"Geoff showed up a few minutes prior to our appointment time and was waiting for us when we arrived at the property. He was friendly, gracious and very professional. He inspected both the interior and exterior of the home, and he didn't at all mind us tagging along so we could discuss with him, on-the-spot, everything he found or wanted to point out to us. The whole process took about an hour and a half. With his laptop available, he was able to input the inspection details on the spot, which allowed him to provide us with the written report within a couple of hours."
