Andrew did a thorough & professional job - we were happy that we hired him to do the inspection of 136 years old house we're about to buy and needed to know if there were any deal breakers that we needed to know. We exchanged half a dozen emails leading up to the inspection day. We had to reschedule the planned inspection day by roughly a week as this last minute cancellation happened because I fell sick. Andrew was quite accommodating. He took the time to explain the way he goes about doing the inspection & also provided us with a detailed inspection report with lots of relevant pictures by the end of the day.
Steven was very friendly and professional. He provided a lot of insights, and taught me a lot while doing the House Inspection which I requested. I will use him again for any House Inspection I need done.
I performed a lot of research when looking for someone to perform our home inspection before we purchased our home. I found Peters website to be very professional and well put together which always attracts me. Not only that but he was excellent to communicate with, he was certified and worked around our schedules. I really liked the fact that he was very internet friendly and has the functionality to post the report online when complete. To top it all off he had a guarantee that if I was not satisfied the inspection was free.
At the inspection I found Peter to be very thorough and inspected every little aspect of our home. He took pictures every step of the way and explained things that I didnt understand. Every question we had he was able to respond in a very knowledgeable manner. During the home inspection the selling real estate agent stopped by unannounced to check on the inspection. This made me feel uneasy. Peter kept doing his inspection but kept his comments quite. After the agent left we continued with the inspection. This was an excellent show of professionalism on his part and it was much appreciated.
The report that was generated is awesome. Very detailed with pictures with arrows within the pictures pointing out the exact point of concern. I would highly recommend Peter when doing a home inspection and will use him again if needed.
We used Mike for our home inspection/repair needs and he was easily the most thorough, competent and trustworthy individual we ever had the good fortune to employ! He discovered while working on the basement furnace and water heater a hazardous situation involving back drafting of combustible gasses. A previous home repairman had improperly pitched the vent piping thus setting us up for potential tragedy. After saving us from an exploding basement he then went on to discover a brittle knob and tube wiring situation that was deteriorating dangerously. As if that wasn't enough he was able to point out to me several more electrical issues that I was eventually able to remedy when I hired an electrician. Suffice to say, I was eventually able to sleep at night in my own home due to Mike's diligence and careful eye for homeowner safety. I'll close by simply saying Mike is a complete professional who dedicates himself to his job with pride. A rare find for people who depend on honest, straight-forward knowledge for one of life's biggest investments.
Very gratefully submitted,
Peter and Joe Dean
John Calkins was absolutely fantastic when he performed our home inspection. He was very thorough, detailed, and patient with us asking a lot of questions. He was a knowledgeable educator as well as an inspector. He was very free with his advice, open-mindedness and recommendations throughout the inspection. I would highly recommend using Ideal Inspection, Inc. again!!!!
I hired them for inspections on my home and 8 rental properties prior to purchase in 2007. They showed up on time, explained what they were doing and were happy to answer all of my questions. They did an excellent job pointing out and explaining what needed to be repaired right away and what future maintenance and repair items I would need to budget for. They prepared a very professional report which I used as a closing tool. This resulted in a substantial change in my purchase price as well as well written information regarding likely future expenses. They put my mind at ease while making these investments.
The estimate of future maintenance and repair items has turned out to be very accurate. I have had previous home inspections done by other companies and none of them were done as thoroughly and knowledgeably as SHIRE's inspection service. They were excellent and I would highly recommend them.
Everyone else is just looking around.
