Buy a home with a trusted inspector
Scott was thorough, courteous and he truly helped me understand the internal make up of our soon-to-be home. He is clearly qualified but beyond that he puts himself in your shoes as a prospect buyer and provides a true check list of priorities concerning any potential problem areas. He is not afraid to be honest and was even able to point me in the direction of how to solve any current/could-be issues discovered during his inspection. My only regret is not using his services when we bought our current (first) home.
We are grateful to have found him and will highly recommend him to any of our friends and or family.
