Ed came highly recommended by another home inspector and I had a good feeling right off the bat. He was punctual, very patient with all questions and suggestions I had and he took his time to explain to me what he was checking for, showing me where to shut the water and the furnace and how the vents and ducts were connected, even labeling switches and breakers for me. He also made recommendations on how to avoid potential problems and checked all the appliances. We ran a whole cycle both on the washer and the dishwasher. He was frank as where the limits of his home inspection were; e.g. he couldn't tell what kind of insulation there was in the basement without being able to drill. He was very professional and pleasant to work with.
