The inspection is a very superficial and not profound inspection as noted at the Sample Inspection. Eventual suspected hidden defects nor NI items (due to crowded area's or furniture not to be moved) will not be noticed as will be advised for further investigation by certified experts.. These "deeper evaluations" will be costly for a buyer. To cover these extra costs on top of the Home Inspection ordered by the Buyer, Seller should list the sale specific "as is" One Important issue: The main water shut off valve location should be marked in the report exactly where in the Crawlspace to find!

Inspector Michael Walsh arrived promptly, clearly explained what the inspection would consist of, conducted the inspection thoroughly and unobtrusively and left the property exactly as it was before the inspection. His inspection report was timely and complete.

Michael Walsh, you provide very well illustrated and well written descriptions of the problem areas. I also like the 'helpful hints' provided for periodic maintenance of the various appliances and fixtures inspected. In summary, a very good report and a pleasure to read. Excellent Job!! Much appreciated :)

Thanks so much Michael!! Your inspection was very thorough. We appreciate the detail remarks on all the areas you inspected. It helped us to research and educate ourselves on items of concern to us. We felt comfortable, knowing what we did from your inspection, to further negotiate with the seller. If there is a need in the future, we will call on you again!! Thanks also to Margaux Lunceford for recommending you. Liz and Frank Haggerty/

Michael was kind and was able to fit in a short notice inspection. He was able to mitigate an awkward interaction with a tenant and was professional the entire time. We would highly recommend him to any party. He was thorough and was not bothered by questions or concerns. He took time to explain and was not in a rush.
- D.W., June 2015
Always punctual and takes a very systematic approach to the inspection. He provides insight and explanation on-site that is extremely helpful. He never seems rushed and always willing to look into a specific area requested and provide his expertise. Some areas are outside of his normal responsibilities, and he willingly fixes minor things that could develop into a future problem. I highly recommend Mike for any inspection.

Michael was a pleasure to work with. My only issue was I expected a call from him just prior to arriving to begin the inspection as we had agreed. Instead he called me after the fact. In the end it all worked out fine. I'd certainly call him again for other needs. He is knowledgable and experienced.
