Recent Review: I had John, of Housing Inspection Services Inc., perform a home inspection, radon test, and pest inspection in August 2019, prior to the purchase of my first home. Overall it was a very positive experience with John. I highly recommend John's services when looking for a home inspector. With over 35 years of experience in the Greater Pittsburgh Area you will be hard pressed to find someone as knowledgeable, thorough and helpful as John. His no nonsense approach to inspections really gives you the peace of mind that all of the items/areas of the house that he inspects are done thoroughly, and any and all potential issues have been identified. He spent over 3 hours covering every inch of the house, from the entire exterior, even climbing onto the roof, to every corner of the basement/garage, all the way through to the attic. You really can tell that John takes the time necessary to thoroughly inspect all facets of the home, and it is well worth the time and money. The narrative report that he provides is incredibly detailed and includes pictures of the items he is discussing, and I found it easy to understand and useful when negotiating repairs with the seller. I also highly recommend attending the inspection as well, because John helps to explain in person everything that goes into the report in great detail and offers insight and advice into maintenance tips and other observations that fall outside the scope inspection report, which as a first time home buyer is invaluable. John gets my highest recommendations, two thumbs up, 5 stars, 10 out of 10, and he will be my top choice for referrals and future business as well. Thanks John!
