We hired James Dobney Inspectors to inspect a home we were about to purchase. They provided a completed report with a lot of information. Sad to say the report was false and the inspector checked many of the items as OK without actually inspecting them. One such item was the attic in our house. After a major rain storm our roof started to leak inside the house. When we went into the attic we discoved a pail had been placed by the previous owner to collect the rain and it susequently overflowed. The pail was in plain view upon entering the attic yet the inspector's report said that he checked the attic. We called James Dobney for an explanation. We were told that their inspectors do not go into the attics becuase of dust and other issues like asbestos. We would not use them again. We learned that with any inspector it is a good idea to accompany them to at least see that they do in fact physically look at all areas indicated in the inspection report.
