Home Inspection reviews in West Des Moines

    The BrickKicker
    From making the appointment, to receiving the final report was such a professional and efficient process. Michael at The Brickkicker took the necessary time to perform a highly detailed and informative inspection. As we moved through the house, he taught me about what he observed, and answered all of my many questions in detail. He continued to re-check things that didn't seem to be working properly to make accurate conclusions. The total experience, including the same-day professional report (with pictures) left me with the comfort and knowledge I needed to do the upcoming builder walk-through. His final report included great home maintenance recommendations that I can refer to in the future.

    Much better than I thought possible! This guy is so open and congenial, informative and a face paced wiz at what he does! He seems like he really enjoys his work and it is his calling rather than a job.

    They were awesome. He was very thorough. He had a thermal imager, a detector for cold areas, which was impressive. He took a look at electrical box to check the wiring in the electric vault. He was early. He was sitting in the driveway before I got there.

    Mike with the BrickKicker is definitely the best in the business.  I used him simply because of his certification and positive feedback from Angie's List.  Everything that has been said about Mike is absolutely true:  he is punctual, thorough, professional, and does not back away from questions.  Myself, my fiance, my future father in law, and my realtor were ALL present for the inspection and he answered every and all concerns and put all technical terms in language we would all understand.  He told us what and why he was doing, what we could do to fix things ourselves, and checked absolutely every nook and cranny in the entire home. 
    The home I had Mike inspect was a bank-owned foreclosure.  From my research, most companies were charging a very steep fee to check foreclosures.  Mike with the BrickKicker did not, in fact, he didn't change his business to me whatsoever.  Everything he said he would do, he did, and on time as well. 
    Mike is undoubtedly the best in the business and is a buyer's dream come true for home inspections.

    Excellent experience, have had many home inspections over the years and this exceeded my expectations. Mike went the extra miles with me over some issues found on the roof.  His inspection found things that I had missed and showed no evidence to the eye with his thermal imaging unit.  His use of technology and knowledge combined with a detailed inspection from attic to basement  found multple issues to be addressed with the seller before continuing with the purchase. 
    I would reccomend him highly to anyone in his area to use his service before some others I considered.

    The BrickKicker
    We called BrickKicker the day before Christmas Eve (a weekday) and were able to make an appointment right away. A woman set up the appointment and asked a few initial questions, including whether we wanted a radon test done. We were able to schedule the appointment at our preferred time, about 3 days after Christmas (also a weekday, but less than a week after we called).  One of our questions was to make sure that he had a thermal heat detector (think this is the correct name for it) to check for moisture in the walls, as this was a concern of ours. He does have one, as well as a thing to test for gas leaks. These are common tools an inspector has, but I think not all of them have the thermal heat detector, so be sure to ask.

    Mike was early to the property so he could introduce himself to the homeowner and set up the radon test, which he will be back for in two days. He was friendly and accommodating throughout the entire inspection. He took the time to answer our questions and explain anything we needed clarification on. Our realtor attended the inspection as well (highly recommend this, and with sharing the inspection report with them), and he answered her questions as well. He was great about making recommendations for the easier, DIY fixes, and could make recommendations of types of companies to call if we wanted a professional to do it. But he was not pushy at all about it. He never tried to upsell us on anything, or push a particular company.

    The inspection took about 2 hours for a 1700 sq ft home, but we didn't dawdle. We covered every room, the garage and all exterior sides of the house. At the end of the inspection, he provided a folder/binder with information, including a checklist that we should go through when we do the final walk-through when we take ownership, as well as info about common household fixes/problems to look out for.

    Within 2 hours after the end of the inspection, we received via email an 18 page detailed inspection report including lots of photos and comments. He was able to cc our realtor (with our approval), so this will expedite the addendum she will create with our fix requests.

    The cost was not inexpensive, but didn't seem overpriced. Our cost also included the radon testing, which I think runs $125 or so.

    We had no red flags throughout our experience; it was entirely positive and informative. We would love to recommend BrickKicker to anyone needing a home inspection in the DSM area.

    Mike was great!  We scheduled the inspection a week before closing, as our builder suggested.  Mike arrived early and did a walk through.  When we arrived he stated he would rather push the inspection back a few days as not everything was complete and he wanted to make sure everything was complete so he could do a proper inspection.  We rescheduled for the following week.  Mike was very thorough, paying close attention to every detail.  The thermal imaging camera was great - it made us feel reassured that the home was well insulated with no cold spots!  Upon learning that this was our first home, Mike gave us tips on being homeowners and things to watch out for and tips on how to be energy efficient.  He was very thoughtful and courteous and made the whole experience a lot of fun.  We definitely recommend him!

    He is very thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and seems to love what he does. I didn't meet him during this inspection, he went through the property with my agent.
