I have used Certified Building inspections on a number of home inspections and found him to be very professional, on time and accurate with his reports. What I really like is that they provide radon testing equipment that read the results on site and deliver the results without having to wait for the kit to be sent out to a lab which saves time.
Home inspections and radon test performed were very detailed and was impressed with the way they presented the reports.
We contacted AdvantaClean of Frederick when we realized that we had a water and mold problem in a closet in our basement. AdvantaClean assessed the situation the next day and worked the better part of the day to clear and remediate the problem. They found an additional space with water and mold problem that we didn't know we had. They checked back in with us to test air quality once or twice. They removed contents from the affected spaces, which was really going above and beyond of what I would expect. I would highly recommend them to others. Top notch service and very knowledgeable of water and mold remediation.
Knowledgeable, he could communicate the situation and testing being done as is but not limited to the process being done on site, the equipment he was using, and above all his certification's. He and his team working showed sensitivity, respect verbally when I would ask question's regarding the matter in my home. They were not annoyed and or exhausted with all of my questions of mold... This company can you tell has devotion to the JOB at hand, and the family they are giving their time and labor to.
Tim was very easy to communicate with both for scheduling the test and after the test. He answered all my questions about the report and made some good recommendations.
Mr. Humen arrived on time, changed the bulbs in security lights mounted approximately 22 feet in the air on the side of the house and even tested that they worked. His rate for doing this work was great. I would highly recommend him
Ken tested and reported on a mold contaminated apartment complex. The job involved multiple buildings and numerous apartment units, common areas, etc. The buildings suffered from numerous water leaks, causing a significant microbial problem. Ken did testing before the job and provided recommendations for the remediation. During the job he consulted with our crews, and finally performed a series of tests as work was completed to ensure the job was clean. Ken was courteous and professional.

I take a lot of pride in my work, and I truly believe in the golden rule of treating others how I would want to be treated. Therefore, I am very courteous, attentive, and empathetic to your concerns and needs since I am a homeowner myself and have gone through this process. On my inspections, I don't adhere to the standards of practice, I SURPASS them! The only way to perform a true home inspection is to dig deeper than most others and really go the extra mile for my clients. I ALWAYS walk attics (which can be hard for some of the older, heavier inspectors), and I definitely get into crawl spaces when it is safe and where so many issues are usually found. Again, this can be difficult for a lot of inspectors who are likely to just disclaim that the space was not "readily accessible." Also, I am very knowledgeable, but if I don't have an answer, I do my best to find the answer for you. Once you are a client, you are always a client, and I am here for your concerns or questions about home maintenance and such for life. I love the "CSI-type" investigation process! A home has a lot of stories to tell if you know how to listen. A home inspector like myself is trained to "listen" to the house and follow all of its clues. For example, just the other day I had a property with a newer roof on only one side to the house...curious...So, I went into the bedroom on that side of the house and noticed the ceiling texture was slightly different than the rest of the house. This makes me wonder if there was a major ceiling repair. I went into the attic and sure enough, there was a different colored insulation in that portion of the attic, and the roof had some wood patches in it. I then started looking for moisture damage in the original roof rafters, but found none. This led me to believe the cause of the repair was not directly related to water infiltration...then I remembered the huge, broken looking tree in back of the house and finally deduced that a branch had probably broken loose during a storm and fell through the roof causing the need for roof repair, and subsequently, ceiling repair from the storm water coming in. See what I mean? You have to "listen" to the house and follow all of its "whispers."
