  • Highly recommend Mark. He is very thorough, professional, and prompt in delivering his report and answering any follow up questions. Really took time to explain everything to us at the inspection. Very pleased with choosing Mark!

  • Either this guy is the most incompetent inspector out there or he is in cahoots with Howard Hanna. Let me just say I was dumb enough to use an inspector recommended by my Realtor, obviously a mistake as they have an obvious conflict of interest not to ruin the deal for the Realtor or the Realtor would never recommend them again, duh. He sited a number of small things like no pipe away on hot water tank relief, labels on breakers etc. Meanwhile there were a number of obvious major problems with the house. which we painfully found out as soon as we moved in. Steve stopped returning calls because I had to hire a lawyer and he said he didnt want to be involved. To add insult to injury we paid him extra to do a well inspection, which he was obviously unqualified to do. All he did was right down a pressure and guesstimated flow rate. and said all was fine. The first day in the house I heard my well pump running continuously and realized the pressure tank was bad. I had to get reimbursed by his insurance for the pressure tank. I could go on as there is much more but you get the idea.

  • He is extremely professional and has a wealth of knowledge. He spent 5 hours with the inspection. He reviews everything, answers all questions at the end, and is available for consult after. We had concerns regarding the missing water barrier behind the siding. Fred provided the proper code violation for this defect, and one for missing safety glass above a tub. What was impressive was how fast he got back to me with this information. Fred also has the expertise for radon, mold and pest inspections, which we include in our general inspection. If you want the best, hire Fred.

  • Mr. Wright went above and beyond my expectations when it came to giving me pictures and great detail regarding all points in the inspection.  He made suggestions, was not afraid to get "down and dirty" when it came to investigating the roof and basement.  He was on time, polite and professional.   He gave us a very detailed report of each aspect of his inspection along with a summary of what needed to be repaired immediately and why.  I would use this company again in the future.
  • Mr Freer was extremely professional and very pleasant. Timely response to all phone calls and emails prior to the inspection and after. He spent 6 hours plus and provided an extremely thorough inspection report. (60 plus pages, with photos) We felt that he left no stone unturned. Mr. Freer sat down right after the inspection and reviewed his findings, answered questions. He only schedules one home inspection per day so there was no feelings of being rushed through the the process. We also had him provide a radon and insect inspection as part of the general inspection. We did not purchase the home he inspected because of the health and safety, and roofing issues exposed. We plan on using his services when we find another potential home. Four Square Home Inspections is well worth the price. Please be aware that our fee included a radon and insect inspection.

  • Jim was punctual, professional and generous in providing guidance about what I can do to remediate the damage to my barn. He wrote a detailed report about the condition of the barn foundation and first floor construction that included steps I should take to fix the problems. He emailed the report the same day as the inspection.
    He even inspected my house foundation (which wasn't part of my original request) and included the results of that inspection in his report, as well. He also emailed a checklist schedule of tasks I should perform as a homeowner to keep my home and barn foundations healthy. Jim charged me a modest fee for his highly professional and skilled assessment. Thank you, Jim!

  • I can't say enough good things about Bearmark. Steve Markiewich was professional, polite and did not mind having me tag along every step of the way. He inspected a Century Home for me and explained every thing he saw. He took his time and was extremely thorough. Even when it was a challenge to get into the attic, he figured a way to get in and take pictures of the issues. When he did find issues, he made suggestions on how to remedy them and never got annoyed with my endless questions.
    I received a very detailed report of the inspection - complete with photographs.
    He was honest and never tried to talk me into or out of buying the house. He allowed me to make up my own mind. In the end, we decided to pass on the house as there were issues that we were not in a position to take on at the time.

  • He made it easy to set up the appointment and sent all the forms with an explanation of the process by email prior to the appointment. The inspection was very thorough and he covered each section of the home with us and was open to questions. He is very knowledgeable and it was well worth the money. I highly recommend him.

  • I hired HomeWise Inspections because of the excellent reviews on Angie's List, but more importantly because of John Cundiff's credentials. I am so glad I did. As a single mother with a small child, I needed a home inspector I could really trust to do a thorough job and inform me of what I was about to get into. I really couldn't afford any costly and quot;surprisesand quot; down the road, and John did not disappoint! He was very professional. After I read the contract, he immediately got started with inspecting the roof, and he didn't just look at it..he got right up there and really inspected it. He then inspected the exterior of the home, including a dilapidated detached garage (all the while dodging hornets which had taken up residence there) he even showed me where there was evidence carpenter bees, he then moved onto the interior of the home, including the attic crawl space and basement.
    John is very knowledgable and thoroughly explained any issues that the home had and spent time talking about future concerns, as well. Although John is not an and quot;alarmistand quot;, he did uncover some serious issues that I would have never known about, many of them were health and safety issues, which was one of the main concerns I had. He does not rush through the process. He spent over 3 hours on the inspection, and this was a small home (but there were many issues). I learned so much about the home during the inspection, that I fully understood the issues even before I received his inspection report. Speaking of the inspection report.... John's attention to detail is incredible! I received a 45 page report within a day or two (via email), fully documented with pictures (even examples/diagrams showing the correct way something should be done, for reference). I was able to save money on the Radon Test that was performed by using the Angie's List coupon. Although I did pay a small additional charge for HomeWise Inspections to come all the way to the far northeast corner of Geauga County, it was money well spent to get the best home inspector out there!!! I would highly recommend John Cundiff and HomeWise Inspections to anyone seeking a true professional and an inspection company that they can trust to do a through job.

  • This is the second time I've had HomeWise Inspection Services perform a home inspection and radon test for me. I was so impressed with the home inspection John Cundiff performed for me on one property, that there was no question that he was the one I wanted for the second property inspection.
    Just as the first experience, John was professional, punctual, and paid a lot of attention to detail. He provides a very thorough inspection, and you feel as though you've really gotten your money's worth.
    John was very willing to work with my timeline (which was a very short time between signing a contract on a home and getting the inspection performed). He was very responsive to my phone calls and e-mails, making it a breeze to set up an appointment with him.
    The thoroughness of John's inspections is impressive! He starts his inspection outside and after he inspections the roof and exterior of the home he moves inside. He is not afraid to really get down (or up) and look at things. He emerged from the tight attic/crawl space in the home, covered in debris....because he actually checks things out...he doesn't just glance at it, at a distance. He not only inspects, but explains everything to you as he goes along so that you become very informed about the home and it's mechanical components, etc.
    John is very educated and knowledgable about all things involving a home (just look at his credentials). I was especially impressed with his knowledge of the different brands and types of heating and plumbing mechanical components and their performance/duration history. He is able to pass this information onto you, where it applies, which helps you determine how long you have before you have to start repairing/replacing things.
    Also very helpful was his knowledge of masonry. He detected a leak and other issues due to the crumbling masonry structure (all of this was unseen by me, and thanks to him I'm able to get it corrected before any further damage is done). He also suggested things that would prevent the problems from reoccurring. I later had a mason come to the home to give me an estimate of the repair work and the information that John provided to me was helpful, in explaining to the mason, exactly what I wanted.
    I was very pleased with the home inspection, and the 38 page report that John provided (within just a couple of days) was extremely detailed and documented with photos. I will use continue to use this report as a reference as it also lists the items needing attention first, then those that I can attend to as time and money permit.
    John was willing to drive a great distance to provide a home inspection for me, and he only charged a very small additional fee....which was WELL worth it!!!
    I would highly recommend John Cundiff and HomeWise Inspection Services to anyone who is serious about getting a thorough inspection by a professional individual.
