I bought an older large home (21 years) and needed to know what I was up against. Steve was excellent. Very very detailed and a nice report to follow. He gave easy suggestions to fix some items to code. He also took pictures of the bat droppings in the attic and explained it wasn't severe but gave suggestions on how to rectify this problem. All the appliances were aged and he felt they would need replacing soon. Turns out they did. Every one of them!! Even the furnace. But he did warn me. He also did a Wett inspection for the fireplace. He came back after I did a small adjustment to follow code and he gave me my certificate for the insurance company. He did not charge me for the second visit. I am recommending him now for my parents.
