Recent Review: There was some mix up with the scheduling so the original guy did not come but after call the office they immediately dispatched someone else to our job. He came took pictures on the roof, in the crawlspace and documented everything big and small. They also gave us a great binder with the home inspection and expedited the process since our deadline on inspections was looming. Very friendly couple. She even gave us these delicious rice crispy treats while we waited for the inspection to finish.
Recent Review: You won't find a more professional home inspection company out there than Signature. Professionals from every aspect, start to finish. You'll be reminded to complete everything you need prior to inspection, along with a text and email reminder of the inspection itself. The inspection is extremely thorough. No shortcutting. Every nook and cranny that can be checked will be checked. The following result is as detailed of a report as you're going to see filled with notes, photos, measurements, guidelines, you name it. I could go on with how satisfied I am with Signature but you will in no way whatsoever be disappointed should you choose to go with them for your home inspection needs. Thanks to Scott and the Signature team for making the process seamless.

Recent Review: Due to the stellar reviews, I told my realtor that I wanted to select the home inspector when I made an offer on a house. Ten years ago, I purchased a lemon of a house, and this time I wanted a reliable, trustworthy home inspector who would call out potential issues that I would not notice. I am fairly well-versed in catching home issues, but I wanted more. I was so pleased with Jay! I had a list of concerns ready, when I met him at the house; I wanted him to validate whether the issues would be easy or difficult to address. He walked me through his process before he even started. He then went through the house with a software application that he built to ensure he does not miss anything on his checklist. His checklist was thorough, from rooftop to crawlspace. He gained my trust, as he provide his perspective on aspects of the house - and increased my trust, when he deferred to other inspector's opinions in two areas. It will be such a pleasure to move into a house that does not constantly cause grief! I truly believe I know what I am getting into, now, thanks to Jay. Without hesitation, I would recommend him and use him again.
Recent Review: Mr. Todd comes out once a year to inspect my home which is on the city's "architecturally significant" homes list. Mr. Todd's inspection reports help with monitoring my home in my efforts to preserve it. Mr. Todd's services are key in identifying problems and making the necessary repairs which help to preserve it.
Recent Review: Excellent. Hard working crew that did an excellent job. Crawl space clean, odor free, less moisture in home. By having this done we later discovered we had a plumbing and ac leak in the crawl space. With the recent rains in Dec/2014 we were so happy to have a sump pump to handle the heavy rains and know our crawl space was not flooded.
Recent Review: I have used C&J Home Inspection services once before, and I chose them again because they are very professional and thorough, punctual, and take care to wear booties on their shoes and lay down a blanket when accessing the crawl space area to keep the floors clean while they perform their inspections. I cannot imagine any other inspection service being more value than what you get with C&J Home Inspection services. I will always highly recommend them to anyone else considering a home inspection. A+++!
Recent Review: Robert was prompt, professional and extremely thorough. I had to find someone quickly and was new to the area. Robert took the time to explain everything even pointing out where all valves and shutoffs were for water, gas etc. His report was one of the most thorough and.comprehensive I have ever seen. He even included video of areas that were hard to access such as crawl spaces etc. and really took the time to highlight everything. I would absolutely use and recommend Robert again.
Jeff Weinberg answered the phone when we called. He explained his procedure for a thorough home inspection. He also suggested we attend the inspection. Jeff went over the report with us, step by step. The report provided was very comprehensive and accurate, and included photos of the issues found in areas, we couldn't normally see (roof, crawl space, etc....).

WOW!! My inspection report was so thorough and complete. There were pictures included in the report to help me visualize his findings. Kim was very organized and efficient. Report was done by the next day. She had it emailed to me and the realtor and sent a beautiful binder copy of the inspection including a how to's book to my realtor's office. This home inspection business is totally responsible. Bill, my inspector did an excellent job of answering our questions, showing us potential trouble areas and at the end, sat down to give us a summary of his findings. My previous home, the inspector didn't even go into the crawl space or peek in to the attic, let alone take pictures (11 years ago). All in all he did a great job. KUDOS to Insight Home Inspection (Gillespie Home Inspection) for providing such a "insight" into my potential property. It helps that Kim gave me $20 off the home inspection because of Angie's List and that she has one of the most reasonable priced home inspection! I definitely will recommend her and use her again.

I called the Magnum office thinking that I needed a "home inspection". When Ken arrived (a bit early) , he explained that a home inspection didn't really fit my goals. He ended up doing a visual inspection inside and out, answered all my questions or referred my to the correct specialty for each problem, and inspected the crawl space under the house. Through-out he was pleasant, professional, and patient. He spent time explaining the issues he saw under the house, answered my questions, and a day or two later sent a complete report listing each issue and its probable implications, with color pictures of each problem. And he charged way less than the home inspection price that I had originally agreed to. I would definitely call Magnum when I do need a home inspection and I recommend Ken highly.

FSAN JOSE PLUMBING
I called San Jose Plumbing after Cabrillo Plumbing said that I had a sewer line leak. The man that came out said I did not have a sewer line leak, but he said I had a severe problem in my crawl space of too much water. He said that the intergrity of my support system was in danger and I could be getting termites. He gave me an estimate of $5100 to come out and make trenches in the crawl space and install a pump system which would get rid of $80% of the water. I had two other plumbers and I talked with a soil engineer. All said that a certain amount of water was normal in the Saratoga area, that the pump system would not work as there was not that much standing water, just wet soil. All agreed that it was not necessary to do trenching and get a pump system. The one thing the man did that was good was to confirm that the sewer line that the Cabrillo Plumbing said was damaged was in good working order and did not leak, but then he tried to sell me on this other job that I did not need.

The inspector Carl was excellent! He first asked me about the inspection that was done and my concerns. He started with the structure, then the building exterior, roof, pluming, electrical, heating and interior components including crawl space. He spent about 3 hours, 15 minutes. There were couple of things he pointed out that I did not gather from previous inspection reports. Examples were that roof was near end of life, the remnants of wall paper, problems with the way the heater was mounted and heating ducts in crawl space being crushed. I was also keen on installing AC in the future and he pointed out that I may need duct replacement which would cost more. The roof was a big item that I would not have noticed otherwise. It also made me aware that AC installing would not just be the $4-5K that people normally quote. The inspector was very courteous, polite and patiently answered all questions. He also recommended that I get a chimney inspection as a precaution which I did.
