Jim was very personable, thorough, and knowledgeable. The pre-inspection communication was great, and the communication during the inspection was even better. He allowed me to follow him around and was great with answering the 2 million questions I had as a first time home owner. I really appreciated his commitment to me as the buyer. I wanted an inspector that I felt has my best interests in mind, as opposed to wanting to keep the realtor happy in order to gain more business from them. He was one of the few that I researched that really seemed to be out there for the home buyer, and I could tell this was true as we were going through the inspection. It took him about 4 hours for a 3000 sqft home (I imagine it would have been less, but he spent a great deal of time answering my questions). He showed up on time, the report was in PDF format with clear sections and pictures, he explained everything he was doing and emphasized the important things that I should remember and look into further, and had great qualifications that you can research on your own. He’s a little more expensive than some of the others out there, but you really do get what you pay for. When making a huge investment such as a house.
The report provided to us included a thorough breakdown of every inspection item. They also provided great tips on how to maintain our home and fix issues that may arise in the future. Thank you Jim and Mike for all of your help and the knowledge you imparted on me during the home inspection.
My dad is very knowledgeable about home systems and their requirements, and Jim was very patient and willing to talk about the final findings with him. Would highly recommend.
