Recent Review: I nearly skipped the home inspection even with our limited time to investigate the house because previous home inspections I've purchased did not seem like a good value. Very grateful our realtor spoke so highly of Dan because he was able to give us a very precise indication of the condition of the house. The report we received for the home inspection cost $350, which is a little less than I have paid in the past for reports I have literally burned as kindling. In Dan's case he went through the house and left a thorough, but extremely readable report on the condition of the wiring, heating, plumbing, flooring and subflooring, insulation, attached decks etc., complete with informative photos and even thermal imaging to help decode the more convoluted systems. He came back at no charge to access parts of the house that were not accessible the first time, and offered to come back again to inspect any pre-sale repairs that might be made! This report paid for itself many times over because of how well it reflected the house's true condition, but beyond the purchase price we are able to use it on a weekly basis to address the most pressing problems first (mainly exterior ones before winter hits) and then turn to interior ones as the beautiful weather grows colder. I was very happy to get this in PDF form with many color illustrations showing exactly what needs to be done. We also benefited tremendously from Dan's recommendations in septic inspection and repair, which was my greatest point of nervousness about the purchase. In the future if I was selling a house that had not been recently inspected, I would give serious thought to hiring Affordable Home to inspect the house before I even put it on the market, so I would not be surprised with serious defects at the point of sale and so I would know what repairs to focus on. That is a big change from my previous feelings about home inspections. We have had really fine luck with professionals so far in Maine and Affordable Home provided us with a great experience.
