Dave truly strives to be the best in his trade, and it shows. I appreciated his attention to detail and thorough evaluation of my future abode!
David fully went through the entire property inside and out. He found several major concerns, safety issues and repair items which would need to be addressed and explained each and every one of them to me in great detail. He was extremely comprehensive with the inspection and discovered many problems which were not apparent to me before. Following the inspection, he sent me a full electronic report, with pictures, summarizing everything I needed to know. After careful consideration, I decided to withdraw from the purchase of this home because of the information gathered during the inspection. David was always very responsive, always answered my questions and phone calls promptly and courteously.
Dave was already on the roof when I arrived early for our 10:00 appointment. He was ready with pictures of the outside, garage and roof. When inside, we sat down while he discussed his process for inspecting a house. He explained things as we went along and if I had a questions, he had no problem answering them. Dave is very knowledgeable and friendly. It helps being able to ask questions easily without being afraid of a gruff response. When the inspection was complete, Dave presented me with a binder. Later when I received my report, I could file the proper pages with the corresponding colored tab. Speaking of the report, within hours of leaving the inspection, I had a full color, 52 page, comprehensive, (easy to understand,) property inspection report. Levels of importance from safety to maintenance. My inspection did reveal an important safety concern, which has taken me back into negotiations with the seller. All thanks to Dave at Home Safe Home Inspections.
David was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. He was on time for the inspection and was able to explain his findings at every step of the inspection, making seemingly difficult concepts easy for my wife and I to understand. He is highly recommended.
