We educate the home buyer concerning maintenance items. Such as changing furnace filters, etc. We also make the buyer aware of the utility disconnects to enable shutting off the gas, water, and electrical service when needed. Such knowledge may prevent extensive property damage and even save someone’s life.
Lexington Home Inspections uses the ASHI Standard of Practice for your Inspection.
Inspection report is usually provided the same day the property is inspected. We are not affiliated with any contractor, construction firm or real estate agency.
Jay was very pleasant, professional, and thorough when we used him for our recent home inspection. He covered every aspect of our inspection, both with us in person and in writing in our detailed inspection report. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a home inspection. Fantastic work!!!
However, after living here a month, we received notice from our insurance company that we have to fix multiple issues otherwise they will cancel our insurance. The issues were something that an experienced, knowledgeable inspector would have found. For example, putting a handrail on the front steps to meet city code. This is something that they should have known would need to be addressed but never mentioned to us. I would assume an experienced inspector would know city code. Or having to re-shingle the house. This is something they should have known an insurance company would want done to have full replacement insurance. There are a handful of other small things that are not worth mentioning to the reader of this comment, however these issues should have been found by a professional inspector. One of two things happened here. Either they don’t really know what they are doing, or they intentionally held back information in agreement with the real estate agent to push through the sale of the house. Either way, I am disappointed and do not recommend their services. They say they have no record of the inspection, but it happened. Why would they lie?
I have used Lexington Home Inspections multiple times and could not be happier with the quality of service provided. Jay is wonderful to work with. His reports are very thorough and extensive, down to the most minute items that some inspectors might dismiss or overlook. My inspections were completed in a timely manner with the report being issued promptly without mistakes or issues. I highly recommend Lexington Home Inspections to any home buyer.
