    Tim J. Abel, Roofing & Construction
    When hiring repairmen for your home, trust is everything, even more so for your roof. Prior to payment, Tim Abel will promise anything and everything. Well we learned our lessons about too good to be true. Once the money is paid, he just gives you the run around. He even promised several times in writing to give us a partial refund, then finally after weeks of not sending the refund check, he writes a super long email about how he thought it through and decided he deserves to keep all of the $2125, since he normally charges $750 just for coming over and inspecting a roof. Which complete garbage, since he had already inspected/repaired the roof/leaks for $1375, less than a week prior. If he sincerely believed he deserved to keep all the money, then why would he offer to refund the money several times and promise to send a check? If he was remotely honest, wouldn't he preemptively tell us he changed his mind? Instead he promises to send the partial refund several times, only to ghost us for weeks and then after we contact him repeatedly asking why we haven't received the check, he writes his email saying no, I've changed my mind. Long story short, this man does not honor his word. And what is a warranty worth if the person giving it is a known liar?

    Center Termite & Pest Control Inc
    Overall it was fine. The guy was running late but they did call to let us know. However we did receive mixed information on how long to wait to re-enter the house with a pet from the girl when we scheduled the spraying versus the guy who actually came out to spray. Also, we received a voicemail from the office the night before the scheduled appointment and were told we needed to fill out and complete paperwork or they could not come out to spray. By the time we received the message and called back they were already closed. They came out to spray anyway and never asked for anything to be filled out.

    JLC
    JLC was suggested by the deck repair guy to look at and try to determine the source of a leak in a house we are planning to buy.   They test flooded the deck and prepared an excellent report about issues with the deck and probable sources of the leak that were used by the deck company in estimating the cost of repairing and replacing the deck.     Only issue was that I felt like I was being pushed to have them do a mold inspection for an extra fee, which I didn't think was probably necessary.   Also, they estimated 2 hours and it was 2.5  (the charge is by the hour). The report was excellent with photos and explanations and although we are in NY and the house is in CA, we felt that we could understand the issues.

    A Thorough Guy Home Inspections
    Mike answered my call promptly and we communicated both by phone, e mail and fax.    He was almost immediately available and did an absolutely incredible inspection (and I've bought and sold 5 houses, so I know).   He took photos and was able to e mail me the report the next day with the photo illustrations since I live in another state.   I was able to take the PDF report and send it to a plumbing contractor to get a bid for repairs.     We had plumbing, roofing and leak inspectors and Mike's inspection was the least expensive even though he spent a couple of hours.

    A Thorough Guy Home Inspections
    Mike arrived around 30 min before the appointment and started to do preliminary inspection of the surroundings. When we arrived, he was very professional and clear about the things he will inspect and the things he does not cover. He is very careful not to give his opinion on many things (like how much would it cost to fix a crack in the wall, and he will NOT tell you what the city codes are for anything as he is not a city inspector). He adheres very closely to the CREIA Standards and will absolutely not give you any advice/ opinions or even look at things which fall outside of what is required. He makes it very clear that he is a generalist and always recommends that you consult with a specialist on everything! He took about 2.5 hrs for the inspection, after which, he printed out the full report in his truck (we also got a soft copy of the report in a CD). He pointed out certain things which didn't conform to code (although, again, he wouldn't tell us WHAT the code is), and made recommendations to fix some things. The recommendations seemed very skewed towards mold prevention. He had a sheet of paper with pictures of the correct way things should be done (to show newbies like us what he is proposing), but he didn't give us any copies of those pictures. He was very professional from start to finish (he even put on booties when he came into inspect the house! I really appreciate that because it keeps the carpet clean). He clearly documented everything and took many pictures. At the end of the inspection, we tried to give him a tip for a job well-done, but he firmly refused to take it. Another indication of professionalism.
