Bob was top notch. He was extremely thorough and focused. He did everything I was hoping to have inspected and more. He offered great suggestions and observations on features of the home.

It is always difficult when buying a pre-owned home to know what is right and what may be wrong with the house. We are very grateful that Big Moose Home Inspections was recommended to us. Bob is very professional yet friendly, and obviously well-trained as an inspector. He willingly discussed his process, and answered our questions within the scope and requirements of his job and profession. We truly appreciated Bob's absolute attention to detail, and even though he found a few minor deficiencies which need attention, we now have the confidence weve purchased an overall solid, well-built and well- maintained home!!! We would not hesitate to recommend Bob, and Big Moose Home Inspection, Inc., for anyone's home inspection needs&theyre both worth every penny and then some!!!

Yesterday I had an inspection done for an upcoming home purchase by your inspector Bob Baur. I wanted to drop you a note to say that it was some of the best money I have spent. I feel I have a complete understanding of the condition of the home and what I need to pay attention to in the future. Bob was unbelievably thorough with the home and is a complete professional. He certainly brings credit to your company and will make it easy to recommend to others.

I highly recommend Bob Baur for inspections. He's very professional, yet very personable and easy to talk to. He was very kind in taking the time to explain to me how septic systems and wells work, what to watch out for, how to maintain them, etc., etc. Since I've never lived in a house with either a septic system or a well, I was very appreciative of all the information he passed along.

Bob, Thank you so much for the time you spent with us on Saturday. I am very appreciative you could meet on the weekend as my job would not let me come during the week. You did a great job inspecting the house and letting us know about anything you found both positive and also those items needing attention. I am now much more at ease with our purchase.

Bob, Thanks for taking the time to answer all our questions. You had some excellent advice too. Bev has me building a kneewall into the attic to support the long span, and the water issue around the chimney was an eye-opener. Just a few examples. Most thorough home inspection I've ever had. We know what we have and what we need. Thanks again, Mark

Bob was extremely professional. He handled his inspection in an orderly and attentive manner, all the while diplomatically dealing with a homeowner who was critical of almost every step of the inspection. Bob also took time to explain what we were seeing in and under the house. I now feel I know my future home 100% better than I otherwise would have, plus I feel confident that I made a good choice overall and I know which areas to focus on improving. Thanks, Bob!!

We were very pleased with the inspection done by Bob Baur. He was very thorough, professional, and helpful in educating us about some of the systems in the house we were unfamiliar with. He did a great job! We were also pleased with the Big Moose Company. You made the whole process very easy for customers who are out of state and needing to get this process completed. Your prompt response with reports were appreciated as well.
