Home Inspection

Michael did a home inspection with me. He seemed knowledgeable and provided some helpful observations while we were together. Later, when I got the report, it was 57 pages of mostly boilerplate standard text that was generated by his computer program. The report did include a few useful observations, but omitted a lot of other observations. Most of the report was computer program-generated text with generic risks and all the potential problems that could happen in any old house....not this house but any old house. For example, there was a page on the risks of knob-and-tube-wiring, but this house already had replaced all the knob-and-tube so why is that page in the report, instead of customized text? When I asked Michael about the generic text, he said that this is the way the computer program works. To his credit, he did provide a customized summary that provided more of his observations....it is a shame that the "normal" report did not reflect the observations from the walk-around. Michael, perhaps you should think about changing that computer-generated standard report......it's not customer-friendly.

Philip, I am sorry to hear you were not happy with your service. As an FYI, a thermal camera was used throughout the home to detect moisture as is done in every home inspection that we complete. Further, the electrical panel cover was not removed because the top two screws on the panel were not accessible. As shown in your report they could not be reached with a screw driver, therefore, they could not be removed. There are definitely some generic comments that would apply to groups of homes because there is no point in writing exactly the same thing on every home inspection. As to your point about the knob and tube wiring, a home prior to 1935 could potentially have knob and tube. Although I am told it has been replaced I cannot see behind walls so I cannot make assurances that it does not exist somewhere in the home. I am never in a rush to complete a home inspection and do not complete superficial inspections. They are always thorough and complete.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback.

Prompt, thorough and educational,

Michael was quick to reply to questions during the booking process and punctual to the appointment. But best of all he was incredibly thorough and took the time to explain what to look for to us completely novice homeowners. Ultimately he helped us save potentially $3k in work that the seller has now agreed to repair.

Michael and his team are very professional. Steve did the inspection and his work was very thorough. The report they issue at the end provided me all the information I need to make an informed decision.

Buyer's home inspection

Michael was able to do the inspection on less than 24 hours notice and provided the report the same day. On site Michael answered my questions patiently and pointed out the most significant findings. We were able to negotiate $5,000 off of the final price based on the findings of the inspection.

Unfortunately because the inspection didn't include areas difficult to access due to storage, it did not discover a crack in the concrete floor in the basement with a buildup of dampness and mold that we did not discover until after closing. We understand the limitations of the inspection but are disappointed it was not detected by the thermal camera. It is possible that other companies would not have discovered this either, but I would recommend purchasers advocate for extra care related to foundation issues.

Thank you very much. I am so happy that your inspection was able to bring you some savings on your home. If you have any questions just let me know. Just to be clear, the thermal camera is only useful on surfaces that it can pick up visually. Storage, furniture, finished walls and ceilings will often limit what the camera can see. That being said, the thermal camera is still an amazing tool that can identify areas of problems that deal with moisture, missing insulation and air leaks in visible areas.
Thank you again,

Home Inspection Review

Chris Shaw just completed the home inspection on a home that we are planning to purchase. Throughout the process, he kept us informed and took the time to show to us exactly what he was talking about. He was thorough in his inspection of the house - inside and outside. Chris was professional and friendly, he provided great service!

Very informative, especially for new homeowners

Moved from a condo to a semi, and did this inspection to help learn more about my house as it is my biggest investment. Chris did the inspection and was very professional and knowledgeable. He arrived 10 minutes early and proceeded to walk me through all the details, from exterior to the basement to the attic (and everything in between). He not only pointed out minor deficiencies, but also provided recommendations for solutions and explained why the issue was a deficiency. This was very helpful as a first time semi owner - a very thorough walk through (~2.5hrs).

I would highly recommend this service to everyone, epecially if you've had to forgo the home inspection clause in your bid and you are a first timer.

Every home inspection will be a educational experience. I recommend a inspection even if you already purchased without conditions to learn more about all the complex systems in your home.

Thanks for taking time for a review.

Home Inspection (5 day for sale)

Michael was quick to respond and was able to turn around a very comprehensive (including pictures) home inspection to help us meet our deadline for a conditional purchase of a home. He was timely, professional and a pleasure to work with.
