Termite and Pest Inspection
I was able to get an inspection very quickly. Mr. Jones was both professional and friendly. Can't beat this price and was pleasantly surprised you can still get a good rate and quality work.May 13, 2016Verified
Tom performed a home inspection and radon test. He answered all our questions and really took his time to explain things we did not understand. He found a concern in the attic that we would have never known about if he did not actually up in the attic.Dec 13, 2015
Total Home Inspection was hired to do a general inspection and radon test for the purchase of a new home. Tom was prompt, polite and did a great job!Nov 19, 2015
GHI, wood destroying insects, radon and some mold testing strips Tom was very professional all of the way through the process. He answered our call on a Sunday and set up the radon testing with our realtor on Monday. Tom was helpful with all things leading up to inspection on Wednesday. After arriving on time he walked me through the process and started his thorough inspection. I was very impressed with his knowledge, but even more taken back by his passion for the work. He investigated things as if generations of his own family would inherit the property. There were no major findings at the home, so I think he dedicated more time to sharing suggestive improvements and maintenance issues. In all he was clocked in for nearly five hours on a house size that probably should have been slated for three. We both had curiosity of some of the character details that went into the home and I think that helped to lead into our late evening. I could not of been happier with his efforts to investigate, inform and educate. His follow up report was just as detailed with pictures, descriptions and suggestions. He also provided us a homeowners booklet and links to whatever continued research we may have needed to follow up with. I would absolutely recommend TomDec 21, 2015

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process of buying a house can be very stressful so I take pride in making the inspection process as simple, informative and comforting as possible for my clients. Once a person has chosen to use my services, I send an email appointment confirmation that includes a pre-inspection agreement spelling out what exactly will be covered during the inspection. Each inspection usually takes about 3 hrs to complete. I invite my clients to join me during the inspection so that I can explain what I am looking for, answer any questions, point out things that are good about the house as well as review things they should be concerned about. My clients will receive a detailed report of my findings, including color photos and recommendations, via email within 24hrs after completing the inspection.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have completed an extensive Advanced Home Inspection Course, offered through the nationally recognized HomeSpection® Training Institute. This "Hands On" training in the classroom and out in the field into a 7 day 56 hours course which includes inspecting two homes and completing the GHI reports using 400 point software. Plus I completed four additional practice property inspections as part of your field study for a total of 80 hours. Upon completing these classes I went through the rigorous approval process to become a Professional Home Inspector certified by interNACHI. I also have completed the Radon Measurement course and passed the licensing test given by the Ohio Health Department.
