This was my first home inspection and Scott provided tons of insight into a large, old repeatedly renovated house I was looking to buy and ultimately identified issues that would have caused me significant problems. Extremely thorough and helpful!
- J.G., Arlington MA, July 2020
Scott is so patient, thorough, educated and informed, but spends the time to explain each and every aspect of the process. His knowledge is indispensable.

- C.C., Brookline MA, May 2017
Scott was beyond thorough - I was incredibly impressed! He went above and beyond and explain everything in an easy-to-digest manner.
- A.R., Concord MA, May 2017
Scott is the consumate professional and his company is the only one (including the rest of the home inspectors) I have recommended in the past 25+ years to Buyers to use to inspect and critique homes and condos in MA & Southern NH.
- N.R., November 2016
Scott was tremendous. . . he went way above and beyond the call of duty, both during the inspection and in his written report. To put it simply, he is the opposite of lazy. I can only hope that we find someone as thorough and attentive to actually do the repairs!
- D.R., May 2016
if the Inspection was great the report after that was amazingly detailed with guidance and suggestions. Loved the experience. Will Highly recommend
- J.K., Marlborough MA, May 2014
Not only did Scott thoroughly inspect my new home but he walked me through and suggested things that I should be able to do myself. From requesting an energy audit and approximately when to shut off my outside faucets all the way to when I have a plumber in some things could be improved but that it's not an emergency. He was incredible patient and detailed...I was excited and nervous before but now I am now 1000% prepared and excited about being a home owner. I am forever grateful for his inspection and warm caring demeanor. Thank you Scott!!!! --- Abigail Fine
- A.F., Norwood MA, May 2014
I will request for Scott on our next home inspection and will recommend him to everyone I know. He knows exactly what to look for and takes the time to explain every detail of the home inspection process. After the home inspection you will leave with no doubt of what the house is in need of.
- R.N., Bedford MA, April 2014
Great Job, thorough and insightful. Very easy to work with. Many Thanks.
- M.B., Boston MA, February 2014
Scott is wonderful, I absolutely love him. This was my third inspection using Scott and I would highly recommend him to others.
- S.B., Billerica, MA, February 2014
Excellent job. Very thorough and knowledgable on just about anything you can find in a home. Willing to spend extra time explaining issues in detail. I couldn't have been happier and would highly recommend to anyone.
- E.N., Gardner MA, February 2014
Scott was very thorough and did a great job. The report exceeded expectations and he took the time to explain the problems and recommend solutions during the inspection.
- D.M., Cambridge MA, December 2013
Scott was very professional, clear and pleasant. One of the greatest questions one might have in life is "what's not happening"! Guess that is somewhat what a home inspection is about. Scotts skilled ability to lead the "blind" and present a detailed report with maybe suggestions or direction was remarkable. I treasure the report and it was the best $'s ever spent. Marcella
- M.L., Waltham MA, December 2013
Scott, It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you very much for explaining everything to me and my wife as you were performing your inspection. I learned alot and will definately recommend you to any of my friends that need a home inspection. Angelo Agiorgousis
- A.A., Hanscom Airforce Base MA, November 2013
Scott was a great inspector, finding issues that the original inspector never noticed. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Scott.
- D.G., Andover MA, October 2013
This is my second home inspection on a home I intend to buy. My first inspector (Tiger Homes)for another property was a disaster. The inspector was not friendly and did not walk me around the property or explain items of concern. A friend of my recommended Paul Cornell & Associates, they are the best. Was he not telling the truth. Scott was the phenomenal. He began his inspection from the outside and when he was done. I almost began to cry. He was very attentive and noticed my facial impression and inquired if I wanted to proceed with the inspection. We proceeded with inspection, he started poking, probing, and digging at every crack and crevice. And clearly voiced his opinion about anything that was a problem or a concern. I can go on all day about my home inspectation experience with Scott. I highly recommend Scott Molander for a home inspectation you will not be disappointed. If you see the report, it was well worth the time.

- R.R., Carlisle, MA, May 2013
Scott provides first-rate service. He has a sharp eye and a deep knowledge of home inspection. Scott provided the initial inspection on a new construction and identified a list of items requiring attention. Those items were included in the P&S and the bank requested documentation that those items were addressed. Scott then did a re-inspection. For both the inspection and re-inspection, Scott provided clear, detailed documentation of his findings. All-in-all, a job well done.
- K.B., Del Mar CA, May 2013
Astoundingly knowledgeable, thorough, helpful, and service with a smile!

- J.P., February 2013
Good Evening Scott, Thank you for the VERY thorough home inspection. Have decided to pass on this one. Too much immediate stuff to do and funding is not unlimited. Will continue to search.
- E.F., Lexington MA, February 2013
We learned a lot, and appreciate the attention to detail and patience with all our questions. Many thanks!
- K.S., Arlington MA, January 2013
My wife and I actually enjoyed our three-hour inspection yesterday. (Yes, enjoyed.) And it was all thanks to Scott. He was personable, friendly, humble, approachable, but above all professional. He took time to explain things, stopped what he was doing to pay attention when we were asking questions, and made sure to communicate exactly what he was looking for in various rooms throughout the house. Would I recommend Scott for future inspections? Absolutely. He made what could've been a mundane and boring process enjoyable. And for that, we thank him. -Mike and Jill (Beverly, MA)

Also thanks for the the helpful tips as well. I'll be sure to check some of the programs and websites you talked about. Thanks again .
- M.B., Everett MA, September 2012
Scott, Thank you for the inspection and report. It was a pleasure to work with you.

- T.M., Watertown MA, May 2012
My wife and I cannot possibly express our gratitude and admiration for the thoroughness and quality of Scott's work. He patiently and helpfully answered every last one of my questions during the process, and the actual report was an exact mirror image of what occurred during inspection. We definitely plan to insist on Scott conducting any future inspections as we continue our home search in New England! We wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks again, Scott. You're a rockstar!

- T.P., Sharon MA, January 2012
Thanks for all your help Scott, we closed on our house today. Thanks for being so honest and analytical regarding the inspection. It certainly helped us make the right choice of property for us and avoid a huge raft of problems on the first house you inspected for us. We appreciate it and will highly recommend you to all our friends in the housing market. Happy Christmas and New Year, John and Taryn McDonagh

I would recommend Scott and Paul Cornell & Associates to anyone who is purchasing a home for their inspection needs.
- J.R., Attleboro MA, April 2011
Scott was thorough and exhaustive in his examination. I have some knowledge of building standards through past remodeling projects and personal experience and found Scott to be exceptionally knowledgable. Scott wasn't a clock watcher and stayed until the job was complete. Additionally, his past experience as pest inspector was a valuable asset to the inspection process, since our property was found to be damaged from termites and rodents. I would highly recommend Scott and his company. We will use them again.

- A.S., Boston MA, March 2010
I would highly recommend using their service. I've used this inspector twice, the first time in 2000 and again in March 2010. The inspectors are professional, punctual, extremely knowledgeable and the report is exceptionally clear and easy to understand. I did purchase the home in 2000 but the one I've most recently had inspected has far too many items which need replacement or repair. All of which I may not have been aware of had I selected another company. I will continue the search and will be contacting Paul Cornell and Associates for the inspection of my next prospective home in the near future.
- A.M., Boxborough MA, March 2010
This is the 3rd house I have used Scott as my Home Inspector. He is by far the most detailed oriented and thorough investigator I have done business with. Each time he inspects a home for me the realtor's or other individuals watching his work comments on how good he is. I always give high recommendations of Scott to anyone looking for top quality.
- R.H., March 2010
