Rob was absolutely fantastic- very professional and knowledgeable. My husband and I are not first time home buyers. This year we have been under contract multiple times, having dealt with a variety of home inspectors in the Metro Detroit area. Rob is by far our favorite. He was the most thorough, took the time to explain everything to us (as if we were first time home buyers). He also explained what we should expect in regards to the report. Rob was not only extremely expedient in submitting his full report, but he also made it very clear he was more than happy to explain any/all areas of the report we may have questions on, at any time. Rob also left us with a “goodie bag” including multiple booklets, pamphlets and various other materials for being a homeowner and covering items you wouldn’t necessarily think of. I wish we had him for past purchases- however we will certainly use him again with any in the future.
I couldn’t recommend Rob more highly. We hired him to inspect a rather large house. He showed up early to get a jump on the exterior inspection, then stayed a full seven hours in all, patiently talking through every issue he encountered, and never seeming rushed. Even though it was a holiday weekend, he turned his report around within a few hours for us, and it was meticulously detailed. Most important: It’s clear Rob keeps his clients’ interests paramount. His mission is to make sure you have the information you need to make a smart decision. In our case, we ended up walking away from a house that probably would have been a money pit. We’ll certainly be calling on Rob again when we find our next one.
Do not listen to people who tell you not to hire a home inspector for a new construction. I hired Rob who found a host of problems that were left behind by the builder and not noticed by the city inspector. Most notably and unbelievably, we had two holes in our roof because the builder neglected to hook up the vent pipes through the roof even though their roofer preinstalled two holes for them. Rob is personable and did an excellent job.
Rob was very thorough. He took the whole morning inspecting the house. Was very focused throughout. His report was very detailed 90+ pages with images detailed the damage and it also included recommendations (contact a contractor, etc). We received the report the same evening. He looked at appliances, walls, insulation, windows, roof, every floor, etc. He used an infrared camera to look for moisture and also used a drone to fly over the house which helped us notice that there was a hole at the top of the copula of the house. It would not have been possible to notice this without the drone. We decided thanks to his report not to make a very expensive mistake and keep searching for our dream home. He saved us tens of thousands of dollars in needed repairs thanks to the home inspection.
Knowledgeable, good quality work, passionate, overall satisfied customer service. I would recommend him for pre purchase home inspection to my friends. This professional helped me save $4 grand while I purchased a 10 year old condominium in Canton Township area.
