Don was awesome, very knowledgeable and incredibly thorough in his inspection! I would gladly suggest/recommend Don to anyone looking for a house! Thanks for the good work!

Did not physically check the roof, just took few pictures from the ground.
Did not mention a crack in the basement.
No mention of seepage under the furnace.
No mention that chimney was blocked and needs cleaning.
Did not check the chimney top, while a previous inspector pictured chimney has no cap, and its top is rusted.
Did not take thermal image of both crack area, and area above the crack in basement which is covered with dry wall.
There are several holes in the walls and closets that were not mentioned although he took few pictures.
Did not mention the age of air condition and furnace and maintenance needed.
Did not check front door bottom until I asked, and this defect is not mentioned in the summary.
This is a below average report that does not provide a fair representation of the house, it actually works against my interest as a potential buyer, really disappointed.

Mr Don Smith performed a complete home inspection on my property in Montgomery, Ohio during June 2017. We were completely satisfied with the experience. Don's inspection was very physically thorough and summarized in an excellent 50 page report with many photographs. Don's helpful suggestions were very good and much appreciated. We recommend Don without hesitation for your home inspection projects.

Don is a gem. He truly cares about what he does and it shows in the details! We felt as if we got an education walking through the house with him. He goes above and beyond explaining issues to you and in a way anyone can understand. I appreciate what he did for us in pointing out things we would not have seen.

This company is great! I have been a little behind on leaving my review, because as anyone knows, home buying can be a little taxing. However, Don and Cincinnati Certified Home Inspections, made the process just a little easier. We had entered our "10 day inspection period" and so we began to call around for prices and availability. We were also going out of town within 7 days, therefore our window was being cut even shorter. Everywhere we called said they had no availability for a while. When we called CCHI on a Friday, they were able to fit us in for that Saturday at noon. WOW! We were shocked and very happy! Then we ask how much (expecting a high weekend/last minute pricing). It was $350, plus an additional $50 for termite. That is GREAT pricing!! We met Don out there on Saturday. He was prompt and friendly. Even though we were "added" to his busy schedule, he cut no corners when it came to our inspection. He spent approx. 2 hours checking every nook and cranny. He gave verbal recommendations as he went and then once complete said he would have a report ready by Sunday (yes, I said Sunday...as in the next day!). So we received the report and it was so thorough and easy to understand. There were pictures of everything and notes next to each item showing what was inspected, what needed fixed and any recommendations. This was FANTASTIC! It was one of the best experiences I have had with a service provider. No gimmicks, no games, just great service! I would recommend CCHI to anyone looking for a quality home inspection!!

Don was able to start the inspections the day that I called him! He didn't waste anytime. It was good knowing that I was able to get someone out right away. He found a few things that I would have never known if not for him. His comments and opinions ensured that I was making a great buy. Thanks Don!!
