I have been waiting for a return call so that we could schedule service for several days and nothing.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

I don't know and have never spoken with this woman. I am assuming it is his wife? Anyway, I have spoken with the husband several times and have had quite a few emails going regarding pricing, scheduling and he told me the week before last that he was going to be away last week.

The inspector was on time and very knowledgeable. I feel he gave a thorough inspection and evaluation of the retaining wall and patio area that we had some concerns about for a home we are under contract to purchase. The price was higher than I would have thought for a short inspection of a limited area, however, the inspector gave some value added time by walking around the house with me and poin...
