In a rush to get conditions met, we hired this company through our realtor. I can't say that I'm happy with the performance. While certain things were addressed (things a lay person could have seen), more important issues were overlooked.
For instance, in the spring when the weather warmed up, water began seeping through the walls of the garage. Upon further inspection, it was discovered that something about a vapour barrier was incorrectly installed. No mention was made of this and while they state that they don't tear apart walls to inspect for problems, it was supposedly glaringly obvious to another inspector prior to even punching a hole in a wall.
No evidence was provided that the attic was inspected. Later, after discovering that the master bathroom was so cold, we went into the attic to find that there was no insulation over it. Furthermore, a huge icicle formed over the exhaust fan that came down from the roof above it and started melting and dripping through the ceiling when the fan was turned on. Damaged ceiling.
Also, we noticed that there had to have been some repair work done to the ceiling in two spots in the kitchen due to the popcorn ceiling not matching the contour of the rest of the ceiling. No mention was made of this.
The gas line entering the house was not sealed. No mention was made of this.
In the corners of the master bath, the ceiling drooped downwards sharply. Visible to the naked eye. No mention was made of this.
I still feel as though there is some sort of electrical problem. We burn out light bulbs at a staggering rate. I'm talking at least one bulb a week over the last six months. Tried different brands, expensive ones, cheap ones, doesn't matter.
The piece of material at the bottom of the front door that should be able to be adjusted up and down to disallow drafts was glued into place and no screws used. It sat way too high (obvious to the naked eye) and major drafts at front door. No mention was made of it.
He only showed us a couple of things at the end of the inspection. (Hot/cold water reversed on one sink, how to use the sump..). We were made to feel like we were in the way much of the time and told us everything would be in his report.
Completely incompetent. Will not hire again nor will I recommend.
