Inspection was conducted by Hubert Miles. He completed inspection in an hour and a half which was under the initial time quoted. He found three minor items that needed fixed. Upon moving into the house I noticed a prior leak that had bubbled the paint on both corners of a bath tub. The drywall was so soft that I could put my finger through it. The base board was also splitting and showed obvious signs of water damage. I called Mr. Miles to speak with him about this and he said he would review the inspection. He followed up with a email that showed all his disclaimers in the contract and that he noted a prior leak in master bath. This leak was in second full bath and not in noted area. I requested a call from Mr. Miles and he responded with that he would rather communicate via writing to protect both parties. It is in my opinion that Mr. Miles pencil whipped this inspection and now is hiding behind all his disclaimers. All noted repairs were fixed by sellers and this would have been addressed prior to closing also. I would definitely use another company for your inspection needs. He will not stand behind his work and will use his disclaimer to cover up his subpar work.

ARPC Home Inspections
Awesome job!! This is our 4th home purchase and this was, by far, our best home inspection ever! Mr. Mass spent 5 hours inspecting every inch of the house from attics to crawl space. He found both obvious flaws as well as hidden and VERY costly problems with the home. He explained things thoroughly and provided the report within 24 hours!

Dissapointing. I made an appointment for a free home inspection for a home I was about to purchase. The technician came early and met with the current owner. Upon my arrival, the tech was leaving. I informed him that I was the one who set the appointment. He said- "oh ok well- the house is fine". I then pointed out a couple of locations where the foors dipped he said it was not a structural issue- ok. I then showed him major cracks in the brick on both sides of the inside garage wall and he said it was normal settling and not a structural issue if you can't see same damage on the outside wall in same area. I then asked if he inspected the crawl space where the pillars were. He NEVER went into the crawl space! I asked if he could please take a look at the pillars and foundation so he suited up, crawled inside and came out within 5 minutes. "all looks good" he said. I then showed him cracks in the concrete front porch and how the wood railing was shifted- "normal settling" he said. Basically, his inspection consisted of walking around the inside looking for cracks in the interior walls that could have easilly been hidden with spackle and paint days or weeks ago. He left and I really did not feel satisfied with the quality of inspection. Perhaps I am just picky. I DID hire two different home inspectors, HVAC inspector and an electrician in addition to RamJack and I have since purchased the home and wouldn't you know- they ALL missed something that they shouldn't have. I trust no one anymore! I suggest you grab as many home inspections as you can. Good thing RamJack's was free but I would get a second opinion.

.We had our crawl space encapsulated. They removed the mold from the crawl space. They put in a sump pump, and a blower. They really do not do much of this type of work. They ran out of the material and had to re-order it. They did come back and finish it. It did take about a month to complete the project. It did turn out okay, but it just took a while. The problems were solved. I would recommend them with some reservations. I would not use them again.

Very pleased so far. They're a professional group with several years experience with crawl space encapsulation. Research has shown the past few years that venting a crawl space actually increases and traps humidity which then accelerates moisture, mold, etc. I have allergies and knew after we moved in that there was mold in crawl space, as well as poorer air quality, and rodents that had been found below. Clean Space rep Dick Martin thoroughly inspected it, provided photos and description of issues, and went over thoroughly what their services and products would do. Their team was punctual, friendly and did yeoman's work for a week in installing the heavy anti-microbial fiber sheets on the floors and walls of the entire crawl space, installing a new sump pump, and a new dehumidifier in the crawl space. Humidity levels have dropped, allergies improved and starting to see some energy savings. They've been back 3 times in 3 months to check readings. Very pleased.

Mr. Williams maintained a pleasant attitude throughout the inspection. This was a big help when he had to deliver negative news regarding our home. His professional manner made the report less difficult to accept. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone who needs a home inspection.

They sent out Ansel Hamilton, who was very knowledgeable and professional. He provided a quote and served as my primary contact before, during and after the work. They got on the work immediately and finished as planned. They cleared out all areas of personal items, had insulation removed and replaced, sealed all cracks and spaces, cleared the mold, treated the wood, and dried everything. We also had the encapsulate the crawl space and coordinate replacement of HVAC ductwork. They provided a full warranty with the work. I have since referred them to several friends and neighbors.
Recent Review: It went absolutely fantastic! They are polite, very courteous, well informed, and made sure you did a walk through to make sure you were satisfied. They went above and beyond the work they do to satisfy my request.They have been in business since 1958 product 100% guranteee warranty for life and will transfer to the new owner if home is sold. Their lifetime guarantee is written into an act of congress. They also do financing, and have a great referral program. If you use this company let them know Greg Wilson recommended them!!! They are the BEST!
Recent Review: Masle and his crew worked unbelievably fast, long hours, including weekends, if necessary. Even encountering unforeseen complications, the initial estimate did not change. i thought the price was very reasonable. They deserve better than just an A. A+++.
Recent Review: Very thorough and comprehensive inspection and report. Received report same day as inspection. Quick and knowledgeable answers to questions. Pleasant and professional. Would highly recommend.
Recent Review: Joe was very thorough in checking all aspects of a home we were considering buying. His inspection report was detailed and included photos. We had it within one day of the inspection. He was also very flexible and accommodating when our realtor asked him to change the time with very short notice.
Recent Review: Home had been under contract prior to our offer and deal had fallen through after the previous buyers' inspection and requested repairs had been completed. Our inspector from Home Inspection One found additional items that previous inspector had missed, and made sure we were aware of repairs that were apparent when he inspected the crawlspace. (He had no prior knowledge of what repairs had been made, and he found and noted all of the repairs that had been done after the previous buyer's inspection.) Very approachable and professional. The report received was shorter than we anticipated, presumably because of the items addressed after the other inspection.
