This was a very comprensive report covering many items I would never have thought of along with practical suggestions as to how to remedy the minor defects. We appreciated the suggestion to also consider a "Wind Mitigation Report" to help us negotiate an Insurance policy for the home. The use of photos to point out the areas for repair is going to be very helpful.
- M.H., May 2011
very very thorough

We were more than satisfied with the Home Inspection by the Ted Lemek team of Inspex First. They had all the equipment to do a complete job. The inspection report was top notch with color photos identifying all the major and minor issues. We would highly recommend Inspex First to anyone wanting to have a thorough inspection. We have decided not to purchase this home. Gary and Martha McCorkle

this was a terrible home inspection and interpretation for the buyers. you are not a licensed insurance agent, WDO man and telling the buyers the flooring was rotten is in my opinion, unreal! if you are a member of ASHI, you need to be reported and your license revoked.

great inspection company very professional i would recommend Kathy for any inspection.
