Ken is a great home inspector. I researched many inspectors prior to hiring one and he had the most thorough reports. He is honest and tells you what really needs attention and what doesn't. Any special requests to be added on the report he will do. His prices are comparable to other inspectors but much more through. My agent actually has begun to use Ken for his clients inspections. It is much easier to negotiate when the items of concern are mentioned in the inspection report.
Mike was amazing from the first moment we communicated on thumbtack. He was quick to respond and answered questions I had which made me feel confident in hiring him for our home inspection. The moment we arrived to the site he explained everything to us. What stood out to me was that although my fiancé was present Mike explained things to the two of us equally and made sure that I understood what was going on with the house. He took his time and was thorough with the inspection. To top it off our inspection took place Sunday ending around 7 pm-his inspection report was in my email by 8 am Monday morning- including pictures and recommendations of what should be evaluated further and repaired. I called four different inspectors and Mike offered a the best rate and was available to conduct the inspection much sooner than the other companies I called. Affordable, professional, honest and thorough. I will definitely call him again if needed and will recommend to anybody looking for a home inspector!
Our experience with Charlie Rinaldi for our home inspection was wonderful! Being an Engineer, his expertise put us at ease while buying a 93 year old REO house. We've bought 7 houses over the years and have never had such a thorough knowledgeable inspectior! He spent over 3 hours going over and explaining every inch of the house and addressed our concerns with the foundation, roof, plumbing and partially updated electrical. Charlie's electrical background was extremely helpful. Charlie is not a nit-picker. He doesn't exaggerate minor issues to validate inspection report as many other home inspectors do. Charlie explained the necessary immediate repairs , and the minor repairs that would be needed in the future. *Weeks after our inspection, we had an issue with mortgage underwriter who'd seen an appraisal picture and was adding last minute contingencies to our loan . We reached out to Charlie Rinaldi requesting his help. He was a true professional and went the extra mile, writing a letter to clarify the non-existent issue. We highly recommend Charlie and Rinaldi Engineering for thorough and accurate home inspections, he is truly qualified with his Engineering background ! Thank you Thumbtack!
I was in the middle of a home renovation project to improve/upgrade a kitchen and bath last updated in the 1980s. I took on the role as contractor in order to save money, but realized that I opened up more than one can of worms, since I was also challenged by the fact that my cottage was originally built as a summer only residence, circa 1900s. the cost of the plumbing alone went over the roof, leaving less funds for the electric and new fixtures. After getting incredibly high-end quotes from local electricians which I could not afford (they knew they were walking into one big can of worms!), I was stuck between a rock and a renovation in progress-no turning back!. On an impulse, I put a call out on Thumbtack for an electrician to contact me for what was an immediate need for someone who would take on the electric upgrade, who was insured and licensed to work in Massachusetts; within 15 minutes Frank Boyer emailed me that he was in my area and could drop by to review my project. He came by within 2 hours of the email, informed me how he would go about the project, and gave me a flat rate that I could handle. I was also happy to take on any prep work that did not involve an electrician- like drilling holes for snaking the new wires. Frank was great, pretty much completing the project in record time, meeting all code requirements, and arranging to meet with the electrical inspector to make sure all work was done to code. All this amazing work added up to 20 hours of specialized work. All fixtures and all ancient lines were rewired or replaced before completion. He guarantees all work and is available to answer any follow up questions after the project is completed. It feels great having met Frank and knowing I can call him for advice on any new projects. All in all, you can't get a better person who knows what he's doing and has great people skills. Frank's not out to "milk" you, and gives you the chance to learn about the positive and negatives aspects of electrical work, which is rocket science to most home owners. Thanks Frank! Thanks Thumbtack! May the force be with you!
I have dealt with many contractors in my lifetime , however I can honestly say it was a pleasure dealing with Dan. I hired Dan to replace a deck on my home prior to putting it in the market for sale. Dan not only did an excellent job on the deck, he helped me make economical solutions to various repairs and remodel that ultimately help sale my home. What was most impressive is that Dan dealt with the constant hassle from the building department in a patient and professional manner. Most importantly the craftsmanship of the deck was so impressive that the inspector said "Your Contractor did right by you and built a deck that will outlast any deck I have seen in the past 2 years." If I was not moving out of state I would hire Dan to do any project in my house because it is not often you come across a true Master Carpenter and that is what you will get when you hire Dan.
We highly recommend using Alan and PHI for home inspections. We found PHI through the high number of positive reviews received on the BBB website, and decided to go with them to inspect our prospective house in the Stamford area. At a surprisingly affordable rate, Alan spent almost 4 hours with us, going over the house, from attic to basement, backyard to front yard, roof to crawlspace. He pointed out issues we would not have noticed. With his camera, he took photos during the inspection that he could review more closely later. During his review of the photos, Alan found evidence of pests, and took the time to make a second visit back to the property to ensure what he saw were pests or not. Alan is very passionate about building and inspection, and seems very interested in what he does. Within 48 hours after the inspection, Alan provided a detailed, comprehensive report with accompanying photos of the inspection which later helped in negotiations with the seller. We were very pleased with Alan's services and would hire PHI again in the future.
Mr. Repass inspected a house we are buying. We are from another state, so we didn't know any inspectors. He was on time, prepared, knowledgeable and thorough. He took time to answer all my questions. I chose him partly because he has a certification that I don't think every inspector has. I value a professional who makes time to associate with others in his profession and keep learning. He displayed a strong sense of ethics. I would recommend him to others highly.
Our inspector Joe was fantastic. He was thorough, gave us tips, and answered any questions we had with enthusiam. We’d highly recommend him to our family and friends.
Chris is an outstanding Electrican and very knowledgable. I have hired many tradesman in the past as a Federal Construction Inspector and without a doubt, Chris is very fare and extremely well versused in all stages of the right way to do it when it comes to your electrical needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great Electrican.
GREAT Brian and his team are extremely thorough (thus the name I guess) from start to finish. The inspection is comprehensive and useful even if you choose not to have any follow up work done. In addition to sealing the home for pest control I found Brian to be more comprehensive than most complete home inspectors. We chose to go ahead with a complete seal of our home to deal with mice and flying squirrel intrusion n our attic. His team came out as scheduled and performed the work over several days. I am happy to say that after a week the rodents were gone and our home was quiet again. I would highly recommend that if you choose to have your home sealed that you be home to see how Brian and his team go about their work. You learn a ton about your home and appreciate that what he does is an art. Each home is different and requires a unique approach. It's a tedious process to seal all the access points. They spend the time necessary and get it done. Finally Brian is constantly following up after the job is complete to access the job and the status of any remaining critters. I highly recommend Brian and his team.
John was the first inspector to respond to my request for a quote. His price was fair and reasonable. He performed an inspection on my home. He was very knowledgeable, thorough and informative.He explained each step and answered all my questions. He took the time to explain things to me and made recommendations that would save me money. I was very satisfied with John. I would highly recommend John Hurst to anyone. If you need an inspector, call John Hurst. Guaranteed satisfaction.
I am a Realtor who is always on the lookout for good, competent inspectors. Paul is that plus he has gone out of his way after the inspection to help my buyers. If you are looking for an inspector, Paul is an excellent choice.
It was a nice experience working with a women home inspector. I was able to ask questions and feel confident she understood. She made me feel at ease with the process. I would recommend her to friends and family
Precision Home Inspections was very accommodating to my crazy schedule. They arrived early to the appointment and were incredibly thorough. Provided me with a receipt on site and emailed me a 43 page inspection report within 24 hours. I would highly recommend!!
I have never found an inspector as detailed oriented as Brian Sweig. His knowledge was crucial during the purchase of my home. Brian's expertise saved me thousands of dollars on what could have been a money pit. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking to purchase a new home, preparing to sell their home or trying to figure out underlying issues in their current home.
very personable and knowledgeable
Steve and his team did an inspection for me on two different houses. Both inspections were very professional, thorough, and went above and beyond my expectations. In addition to the inspection report, they walk you through the house and discuss each of the issues in detail, giving a comprehensive evaluation on anything they find. Steve is also a great resource for answering questions and discussing potential solutions. I cannot say enough good things about my experiences with Stonehollow. I highly recommend them, and I would definitely hire them for any future home inspections.
