    Fireplace Solutions The Chimney Sweeper
    After several very nice conversations, emails, and an appointment -- no show, and no follow up. I left a message, and a very friendly and informative gentleman explained in detail what this job would entail, to start, and what the price would likely be. We made an appointment. But no show, and no follow-up call or email. I left a follow-up email, and a message through Angie's list -- followed up both, and had a lovely conversation with a woman in the office with a promise to follow-up, but no one ever did. Given the high ratings on Angie's list, I am very surprised at this exceptionally poor service. Previously, I could really count on Angie's referrals -- Now, I'm not so sure.

    I have nothing against the guy, personally. He was punctual and easy to deal with. It was just the lack of decisiveness on anything I wanted to know that left me feeling almost as informed about my house as before I had it inspected. For example, he mentioned there were cracks in the foundation. But, he didn't mention is there were a few, a lot, and if they were big or medium or small....or if the house was going to be fine, or if it was going to collapse and we were all going to die. I realize most home inspectors probably do this to some extent, but anytime I asked him anything, he suggested I get a specialist in that area to come and check out that specific thing. By that logic, it would only make sense to never even do a general home inspection, and only have respective specialists come out and look at their specific areas of a property. I had a very well-versed friend present at the inspection who also had his doubts about our inspector. To test him, he asked him two questions about my property and whether certain things were up to code, or not. The inspector referred us to check with the city. Both things my friend asked about were NOT TO CODE, and my friend knew it. He just wanted to see if the inspector knew, and if so, if he would say it. In the end, it was an afternoon of buck passing that left me feeling like I wasted my day, and $350. He was very prompt getting his inspection report back to me, however. I did really appreciate that. But, because I could not tell what I needed to know from speaking with him, or his report, I had to hire a separate foundation inspector to come out, at yet another cost. In full disclosure, this was my first time ever having a house inspected, so maybe this is the way it goes. But, my friend (who owns many properties) told me I had a right to be upset, because he has never dealt with anything like this before, during an inspection process. My real estate agent (who was present) also went on record and said she was underwhelmed. I don't know if any of this helps, but I figured I would share.

    Alpha Structural, Inc.
    Our house had a bedroom addition built in the 1950's with an inadequate (shallow) foundation and it was sinking, causing cracks the walls.�� Brad Nestler came out to take a look.�� He was five minutes early and spent over an hour crawling under every part of the house, then took time to go over what he thought we needed.�� Even drew up a pretty good map on the spot.�� He then worked with me on a price I could afford.�� It involved a geographical inspector coming out here first but I was steered in the right direction and guided every step of the way to make it relatively easy to navigate the process.
    When the work was done, the crew was outstanding.�� Very professional, arrived every day on time and usually a few minutes early.�� They kept the site clean at the end of every day and got the job done in the time promised. ��
    Brad came back and inspected the work and found a couple of things weren't quite the way he wanted them to be so the crew came back on a Saturday (their day off) to take care of that.�� I never would have known either way, so that tells me this is an honest company who stands by their work 100% and takes pride in the results.
    Excellent communication every step of the way.�� They handled all the permit business and kept the fees minimal.�� And while it cost a lot of money, their price was competitive and I believe you get what you pay for.�� So I'm happy with what I got for my money.
    I wouldn't hesitate to hire Alpha Structural again if the need arises.�� I would definitely use them if I need a foundation inspection for a future home purchase as well.�� They are thorough, knowledgeable, professional and do excellent work.

    I couldn't ask for a better inspection. Amazing detail, and helpful at every turn. George offered to answer any questions I may have and look over any future contractor estimates for work I need done. He was extremely professional and knowledgable. After dealing with him, I would never call another inspector. He really knows his stuff and is honest and forthright. He also caught an error made by a contractor who was there the previous day, that I would have not noticed for weeks or months had he not been there. I'm pleased to say that because of him, the contractor immediately corrected the problem and I'm back on track. Well worth every penny and then some!

    The service went well. They did a completed evaluation and gave a lot of great recommendations. They were great at explaining how I could improve my home in the future. One technician came out and completed the job in less than an hour. He came out on time and was neat while working in my home. He was also professional and neat in his appearance. It was very easy to schedule the appointment.

    I really had no expectation that his inspection would include the chimney and the performance of the sprinkler system and the foundation. I can't think od anything he left out i was most impressed that he arrived a little early and that after he was finished took as much time as necessary tp amswer all my questions. He even returned to check that his recommendations for repairs had been properly done.

    We're considering putting our house on the market but needed an inspection done first. The inspector was punctual, professional and very thorough. He actually found issues on our house that we weren't even aware. He even took the time to photograph and list them in detail. I would definitely recommend them to others.

    John from Home Inspection Authority did a very detailed inspection on the interior and exterior of my home. Not only did he do the basic inspection, he went above and beyond! He actually checked my appliances to see if they had any recalls!! I was sent a very thorough report detailed on everything that was inspected and pictures to show where there were minor issues. This was by far a simple and painless process. If you are looking for a home inspector, do not hesitate to call Home Inspection Authority and ask for John.

    George, the owner, is awesome!  He was recommended to us by our agent and then I looked Reliance up on AL and it has an A rating that is well deserved.  He was punctual and completely thorough.  The house we are purchasing has been recently remodeled with minor updates.  We were offered someone who could be in and out in 2 hours, but with an old home, we did not want fast and cheap.  George answered all of our questions and gave us a very in-depth report at the end.  
    I would recommend him to anyone who wants a fair and complete inspection of their home.  With the time and detail that he provided, his rate was well worth it and actually cheaper than others we looked in to.

    We called George to inspect a condo/townhouse for purchase based on his many positive reviews here. this was our first home purchase so we really did not know what to expect. He arrived promptly at the time we had agreed upon and began work right away. He guided us through the process and was communicative about what he was doing and aha he found. We gave him space to do his work, but any issue he found, he let us know about. There were small things that were not of structural concern, but informative, such as the hot and cold water being reversed in the kitchen, and areas that were built to old code rather than current (a toilet seat without proper distance from the wall). I recommend George highly to anyone who is detail oriented. While his practice is a little "old school" (he works on paper rather than via iPad), he is a true professional. We also requested pictures of any areas of concern which he was happy to do. He scanned us a copy of the report and we were very happy with his thorough service.
    I felt like after George's inspection we knew exactly how to care for this home, which I learned after the fact is not always the case. We ended up pulling out of the deal for that condo, based on a misunderstanding about parking space. When we placed an offer on another unit, our realtor talked us into working with another (fancier) home inspector who operated digitally. While the other guy did a fine job, I really missed George's in-depth personal touch. 
    In all, I have come to the conclusion that I will take George's commitment and knowledge over bells and whistles any day. We've even considered having him come by our new home which we are now living in to show us how everything works!
