Home Inspection reviews in Bellevue

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • Quote provided was prompt and on par with industry average. Only reason I marked them down on professionalism was due to the fact that they added me to their email list and inundated me with spam until I blocked them. I did not actually purchase a warranty at this time.

  • Inspection and the report was very detailed.  He was able to do our inspection on a very short notice ( I called him on Tuesday and he did it on Friday).  He made good recommendations on any repairs that were needed and was especially thorough on safety problems. The person I booked the appointment with was very pleasant too.  I would highly recommend them.

  • We've been forced to sue Foundation-2-Rooftop, Inc. in Small Claims Court because inspector Greg Wayman refused to reimburse us for the repairs the plumber had to make after Mr. Wayman lifted up on our hall bathroom toilet and broke both sides of the flange. Our contact with Greg Wayman of Foundation-2-Rooftop, Inc. started when the buyers of our home retained him to complete an inspection. Based on our review of his website and the reviews that were available at the time, we were reluctant to allow him to come into our home to conduct the inspection but did so nonetheless. As it turns out, our first impression of him and his business were warranted. Shortly after Mr. Wayman arrived, I was in the basement of our home working in my home office when I heard him yell out from our hall bathroom. I immediately went to the bathroom and found him standing over the toilet. He told me the toilet wasn't bolted down. When I inspected it myself, I found both bolts on each side were no longer holding the toilet down to the floor. Mr. Wayman told me he lifted up on the toilet with his foot to confirm it was bolted down because he no longer uses his hands. Keep in mind, we knew the inspector was coming to our home that day to inspect the home for the pending sale. Also, this toilet was used by three members of our family that morning (2 of which were females) and was bolted down; otherwise, I would have been first to hear the toilet was loose and wobbling while sitting on it. This is an older toilet and thus has a large water tank and so if the toilet had not been bolted down, it would have been wobbling very noticeably. I told Mr. Wayman I would have to remove the water from the tank and pull it up to find out what the problem was. Mr. Wayman went on with his inspection. I drained the tank with a wet vac and pulled up the toilet. What I found was both anchor points on the toilet flange were broken to the point there was no longer a way to anchor the toilet down. I asked Mr. Wayman to return to the bathroom. I showed him the damaged flange on each side. He denied he caused the damage when he lifted up on it with his foot. I explained to him from a common sense standpoint, the situation spoke for itself. He continued to deny he caused the damaged to the flange. I asked if he expected us (the buyer's father was there too during the inspection) to believe the toilet was in that condition before he walked into the bathroom knowing the totality of the circumstances? He only stated he didn't do it.  Mr. Wayman told me he was leaving because he didn't have to put up with this. I questioned why he would leave, suggesting he could go ahead and finish his inspection but he left anyway. I thought maybe some integrity would surface later for Mr. Wayman but he proved me wrong. When we contacted him later requesting he pay the approximately $230 it cost for a plumber to come out and replace the flange and re-install the toilet, he laughed and refused to reimburse us. When we attempted to serve him with the Small Claims Court complaint, he failed to pick up the certified mail.  That forced us to have him served in-person at an additional cost to us.  Mr. Wayman demonstrated no professionalism at the time of the inspection, after the inspection and when he refused to pickup his certified mail. Our time is worth way more than $230; however, out of principle, we are not going to allow Mr. Wayman to get away with damaging our property and not taking responsibility for it.  Mr. Wayman also never offered to provide his insurance information so that his insurance company could investigate the incident and determine if he was legally liable for the damage.  This is a perfect example of res ispa loquitur, Latin for "the thing speaks for itself"!  If this guy can't figure out his reputation and integrity are worth $230 then one must question how much reputation and integrity he had to lose!

  • We had decided to use Greg based on the reviews we found on Angie's List. So we were surprised when our agent called saying that the sellers' agent for the house said she would not let him in the house. Given the amount we were about to invest in a house we were not willing to go with a second choice on inspectors based on one realtor's opinion- especially since she had a financial conflict of interest. Long story short, we had to threaten to walk away from the sale before the agent caved. Our impression of Greg was that he was professional and very thorough. He not only pointed out immediate concerns, but things to keep an eye on and things that aren't critical but to consider changing. He did a good job of explaining what things were important and what things weren't. I felt like he was fair and thorough in his assessment. We did end up buying the house even though it needed some repairs. One of the complaints of the realtor was that Greg scares people away from buying houses. For as large of an investment as a house is, I wanted to make that decision with as much information as possible. I definitely recommend Greg and would advise anyone who meets with realtor resistance to use their best judgement. For us it came down to trusting the Angie's List reviews over the realtor's opinion.

  • They were able to come in and do the inspection in a timely manner and provided us with a report of the findings that was greatly appreciated. They were very professional, showd up on time, and fit us into a tight schedule.

  • The water well sampling provided clues that industrial groundwater contamination was present. Potential liabilities of even an innocent land purchaser related to ground water clean-up was a factor in our decision not to complete the transaction.

  • Jim was extremely accomodating! He not only got me in short notice (less than 24hrs) but also hooked me up with his Radon person so that the testing got started within a day of the inspection!

  • My realtor suggested hiring Cornerstone Home Inspectons to inspect a home that was unknowingly being flipped by a licensed realtor.  Shortly after moving in the roof was leaking. We hired a roofer to fix a leak near the fireplace.  When the 150lb roofer got on the roof, his foot went through the roof deck near the kitchen vent stack.  He fixed both leaks and said that the roof deck in those places were very poor condition.  In August of 2011 after the hail storms, my insurance totaled the roof which was installed in October 2009.  When the roofer removed the shingles, it was discovered that the entire roof deck was completely rotted. Pictures can be provided!!  I called Cornerstone to report the finding and - even though they say on their website, that, "On the flip side of this, if we inspect the roof and we note that is in acceptable condition, but it is actually damaged and/or at the end of its serviceable life, we are responsible for this issue.  We will repair or replace the roof at no cost to you." Chad denied any and all liability and said that when they inspected it, "it looked like normal old roof decking."   The report failed to mention that there were three buckets and a white foam ice chest in the attic to catch water - their picture shows the corner of the ice chest. Though when the pictures were viewed initially - it was believed to be a piece of equipment of the inspector.  Had this been reported it would have been a reason to act for further inspection. 
    Chad said, 'we told you to have it inspected by a licensed, qualified inspector'.  Cornerstone states that throughout the report, basically excusing them from any incident you discover afterward, even blatant omissions, such as the buckets in the attic. 
    The roof deck cost $2,500 out of pocket because the insurance company would not pay it, it was not the result of the hail damage.  Chad offered to refund the $325 inspection fee.

  • Doug was  by far the most affordable option. He spent time explaining everything we needed to understand to make purchasing our first home as easy as it could be. He was punctual, extremely thorough, and very professional. He found every little problem and explained how to fix it. I would definitely use his service again if we needed it, and I highly recommend him!

  • My husband Dave and I have used Greg Wayman's Foundation-2-Rooftop home inspection services many times over the years.  Greg has saved us from multiple buying disasters. We first used Greg’s home inspection services about six years ago.  I honestly don’t recall what he charged, but you don’t want to go with the lowest cost provider for this type of service. We were considering purchasing a home for our family to live in, but unfortunately, the house was literally falling down a hill. The signs were well hidden by the home owners.  After the inspection, Greg told us "don't buy this house" and then backed up his recommendation with thorough documentation.  We were able to get our deposit back as a result. More importantly, Greg ensured the safety of our family and kept our lifetime savings from going down the drain.  If we had purchased the house, it would have been very costly to attempt to repair and would have been next to impossible to ever sell. Since then, although my husband has a construction background and can generally spot structural issues on his own, prior to purchasing homes to remodel, he has Greg inspect them. We are not “flippers” and consider ourselves refurbishers with a concern about the safety of the public and honest business dealings. Greg has the same philosophy and we trust him emphatically.  He cares about people.
