Alex inspected our 1920's semi-detached house for us before we bought it in the spring of 2014. The interiors had not been updated since the 1960s, and clearly needed work. Looking beyond the shabby finishes, Alex saw a fundamentally sound house with no termite damage, rot or structural problems, a dry basement, reasonable windows, and a recent heating system. His accurate assessment made it possible for us to plan and complete major renovations on time and on budget, without any nasty surprises. Others in the neighborhood have been surprised after buying by severe termite damage and unsafe wiring, leading to major unexpected costs and stress. Clearly, a good home inspector is worth every penny, and Alex is among the best. Thanks.
