When we bought a house recently, our R/E agent recommended Alex to do an inspection for us. The service he provided was exceptional. He spent more than four hours going over every detail of our two-story, 1300 sq ft house. At his suggestion I joined him for this process, so he could explain all issues and features as he found them. He did this patiently and in detail, answering my often naive questions with good humour. He was very thorough, even climbing a ladder in the biting cold and snow to inspect the roof, something I suspect very few inspectors would bother to do. The rate was competitive with those of inspectors who provide much less, and the result is that we got, not just a bill of health for our house, but a detailed understanding of its systems and construction -something of considerable value.
