I contacted Jim Lepine (Fore Front Home Inspections) to inspect our house and take samples to assess for possible mold. I chose him because he is independent from mold remediation companies and contractors. It was a wise choice in the end.
Jim took me around the house and showed me a number of things that needed to be repaired or improved. He explained things clearly in plain language and took the time to answer all my dumb questions without any condescension. He even came back a second time to answer follow up questions.
He then documented everything (e.g. foundation crack, need for roof flashing, need for regrading of soil) in an emailed report with photos and recommendations.
He took air samples for mold testing and let the machine run for the required time even though it meant extra time for him. Luckily for us the tests came back negative.
Jim is highly knowledgeable, professional and courteous. My overriding impression was of integrity.
Obviously, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. For the record, I have no financial or other conflict of interest.
